Utility Beard Softener
Life is hard; soften up
Utility Softener is a versatile beard and hair conditioner that restores hydration lost from showering, strengthens hair follicles, and helps prevent breakage. Use it daily for a softer, healthier, and easier to style beard and mane. Utility Softener doubles down as a moisturizing shave lotion that reduces irritation and keeps skin soft.
Utility Softener pairs perfectly with Utility Wash.
Battle scars proudly shown
Growth doesn't come easily. There are setbacks, defeats, and valuable lessons along the way. Every bump, bruise, scar, broken bone, and broken heart tells a story and should be worn with pride. That same philosophy applies to Beardbrand packaging. Your aluminum bottles and jars will dent and get dinged up along the way. We see it as a reminder to not hide from our scars and imperfections—but to embrace them.
How to 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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
