Each season brings new damages that affect your hair and skin. The summer, in particular, can be pretty rough on a beard, with all of the sun damage, sand, and ladies tugging on it — your face blanket needs a little reinforcement. To help you summer-proof your beard our friends at BeardBrand have provided a few tips using their products to make sure you and your beard are looking its best while enjoying time in the sun.

Tree Ranger - BeardBrand

Beard Wash

Washing your beard before you go in the water will help mitigate the rigors of the summer elements and prevent hair color from fading due to sun exposure. Beardbrand’s Beard Wash ($27 USD) has a very gentle lather that is soft enough for your face and tough enough to handle curly, coarse beard hairs. We recommend applying it daily if you are in environments where your beard gets dirty regularly or is exposed to harsh elements.

Tree Ranger Beard Softener - BeardBrand

Beard Softener

It’s important to follow your wash with a softener. This is a must to keep the hair moist and soft and to make it harder for the saltwater and chemicals to damage the hair. The Beardbrand Beard Softener ($27 USD) is a silicone free product that won’t build up over time. This beard softener can be used like a hair conditioner and applied after washing your beard. This formula is perfect for tossing in your beach bag so you can re-apply throughout the day.

 Beard Oil - BeardBrand

Beard Oil

For post-beach treatment, apply a beard oil. This major moisture-boost will restore moisture and shine, and soothe dry locks, leaving them silky. Beardbrand’s unique Beard Oil ($15+ USD) recipe uses only the most natural ingredients to create lightweight and effective products. After months of research and trial periods, only the finest natural blends are released, each of which is specially designed to keep your beard healthy, conditioned, and shiny without causing greasiness or weighing your facial hair down.
