Every man knows the itchiness that comes with growing and maintaining a beard. During those first few weeks of growing out your beard, your whiskers can be especially itchy. Short stubbly hairs are coarse and can irritate your skin. But, with the right care and maintenance, you can avoid the itch altogether.
Keep your Hair and Skin Squeaky Clean
Built up dirt and residue can cause your hair and skin to be extra itchy. Instead of using regular shampoo, massage your newly forming beard with a beard cleanser. It’s specifically designed to remove dead skin cells, moisturize your skin, and most of all, stop the itch.
Conditioner isn’t just for long locks. It also gives your beard that soft, tangle free feel. It acts much like a moisturizer that softens coarse stubble and rough hair strands.

Use Beard Oil
If you want a soft, itch-free beard, then beard oil is your answer. Beard oil is especially effective in the early stages of growing out your beard because it softens the hair and the skin underneath.
Avoid Harsh Heat and Products
If your beard is fully grown out, proper maintenance will prevent the itch. Heat from styling and harsh chemicals in products can lead to skin irritation and discomfort. High heat can damage your hair, causing split ends and stunted growth. Trim the ends and hydrate the follicles to repair any damage and avoid harsh chemicals.
Use a Beard Comb
Comb through your facial hair regularly to prevent ingrown hair follicles, and to evenly distribute your hair’s natural oils, and rid your beard of dead skin cells. A small comb will do the trick to neaten the hairs and keep them in place.
