HOW DO I USE UTILITY BEARD SOFTENER?

BEARD CONDITIONER: Apply a nickel-sized amount of Utility Softener to your beard, focusing on the hair tips. Bask in the awesome fragrance under your nose while letting it soak in. Rinse. Use Utility Softener on its own or after washing your beard with Utility Wash.

HAIR CONDITIONER: Apply a nickel-sized amount of Utility Softener to your hair, focusing on the hair tips. Let it soak in for the duration of your shower. Rinse. Use Utility Softener on its own or after washing your hair with Utility Wash.

SHAVE LOTION: Use Utility Softener in place of shaving cream for a slick and smooth shave that moisturizes skin and reduces irritation.

ADVANCED BEARD + HAIR SOFTENING

If you want to make your beard and hair even more soft, touchable, and easy to style, try these advanced softening techniques:

  1. Co-washing (conditioner washing): It sounds counter-intuitive, but instead of using Utility Wash every time you shower, try using Utility Softener instead. Utility Softener contains enough cleansing ingredients to take care of any routine bacteria in your beard while keeping it moisturized. Reserve the stronger Utility Wash for a weekly deep-clean or for days when your beard is extra soiled with sweat and dirt.
  2. Let it soak: Apply Utility Softener at the start of your shower and let it soak in while you wash the rest of your body. The more time it spends on your hair, the more time it has to work its magic.
  3. Leave it in: For the ultimate softening boost, apply a small amount of Utility Softener to a damp beard, and skip the rinse altogether. Set it and forget it while you go about your day. Just be sure to give your beard a thorough rinse before adding more Utility Softener the next day.

Keep in mind that everyone’s hair is different, so experiment with these three techniques to find what works best for you.

HOW CAN A MULTI-USE PRODUCT BE AS GOOD AS SINGLE-USE?

This is a great question. There are some fundamental differences between beard hair and head hair. But over the years, we have learned that certain multi-use product formulas, when used properly, can be just as effective as single-use products for conditioning head hair and beard hair.

It’s all broken down in greater detail on our blog: The Science Behind Beardbrand Utility Softener.

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE SPICED CITRUS, TEA TREE, AND FOUR VICES FRAGRANCES?

To improve operational efficiency and provide a greater value, we made the difficult decision in 2022 to begin retiring the Spiced Citrus, Tea Tree, and Four Vices fragrances.

You can read more about these changes on our blog at Big Changes Coming in 2022.

 Our Fragrances 

Bold Fortune

Fortune favors the bold, and in collaboration with Jeremy Siers, we bring you our smoothest ever special-edition fragrance. Charred white oak and vintage leather couple with hits of saffron and oud to create a slow-burning scent blend that lingers like cigar smoke, trails like whiskey legs on the side of a glass, and ages almost as well as you do. Be bold because there is no fortune but that which we make.

Primary Notes: Leather, Whiskey, Saffron, Oud, Tobacco
Fragrance Family: Woody, Amber, Resinous
Fragrance Type: Warm & Complex

Old Money

Breathe deep—that's the smell of Old Money. With 23 fragrance notes—including aged oak, amber, and ylang ylang—this is a rich and complex scent that evolves throughout the day. As a fragrance, Old Money is right at home surrounded by rich mahogany, your favorite worn leather chair, a glass of whiskey, and a cigar.

Primary Notes: Oak, Amber, Leather, Lime, Ylang Ylang
Fragrance Family: Woody, Floral, Citrus

Tree Ranger

If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around, does it make a sound? Who the hell cares when you smell this good! We’ll go out on a limb and say it—Tree Ranger will leave you pining for more. This blend of refreshing eucalyptus, fresh pine, and sweet, sweet cedarwood takes root in your beard, hair, and skin and says, “that man is a trailblazer.” In other words, Tree Ranger keeps you smelling like you just hiked through a Pacific Northwest Forest.

Primary Notes: Eucalyptus, Pine, Cedarwood
Fragrance Family: Herbal, Woody

This resinous and smoky fragrance is perfect for a temple retreat or hastily retreating from a temple.
