Men’s Hygiene Talk: 4 Ways To Properly Deal With Beard Dandruff

Dandruff is always an unsightly problem.

Flakes falling out of a person’s hair can be an annoying issue, coating their clothing and surroundings in white specs.

But this frustrating problem isn’t just reserved for the hair on top of a person’s head. For those with facial hair, especially think beards, dandruff can be a constant issue that seems impossible to solve.

The unsightly and unsanitary problem of beard dandruff plagues many people, putting them in a tough spot. Some even consider going clean shaven when they can’t correct the problem through normal methods.

But no one should have to alter their appearance just because they have a little dandruff. Understanding the source of this problem can make it easier to deal with. Dry skin is the most usual culprit of dandruff. However, dirt and grime, even in microscopic amounts, can accumulate in thick hair no matter where it is.

Using the right products and methods can help anyone deal with beard dandruff. Here are four solutions for handling the problem.

Ending Beard Dandruff with Good Habits

1. Wash Your Beard Regularly, Just Like Your Hair

The hair atop our heads needs to be washed regularly. Not only is this important for removing the oils and sweat that build up during everyday activities, but it can also remove the dead skin flakes and debris that cause dandruff.

Beards are subject to the same issues. This means they need to be washed regularly as well. Taking a few extra moments to clean the beard during a shower or bath is a wise move. It can also be helpful to dedicate a few minutes each day to cleaning and rising only your beard. This ensures it gets the individual attention necessary to prevent dandruff buildup.

2. Shampoo with Approved Formulas

Beards are a little different than regular hair. Sometimes the shampoo that works on a person’s head may not be sufficient for their beard. Anti-dandruff formulas are good, but a person needs solutions designed for the part of the body they’re targeting.

When beard dandruff is the issue, specifically made beard shampoo can be the answer. These formulas come from various brands and in various sizes, making it easy for a person to handle their dandruff whether it’s a minor occurrence or a constant problem.

3. Use Beard Oils and Facial Moisturizers

Just like moisturizers and oils are made specifically for keeping hairstyles clean and free of dandruff, similar products exist for facial hair.

Oils can be used to condition the hair on a person’s face, reducing the chance of oil and dirt buildup. This in turn can help reduce the chance that beard dandruff will be a problem. The best oils for the job are usually olive oil, tea tree oil, and jojoba oil.  Tea tree in particular has a great anti-bacterial property especially useful for keeping thick beards clean.

Since most dandruff results from dry skin, moisturizers can help remedy the problem. By stopping the skin under beards from drying out, moisturizers can help reduce the buildup of dead skin flakes and reduce or even eliminate dandruff altogether.

4. Improve Your Diet to Reduce Dry Skin

Since a person’s dry skin may persist even if it is treated with specially made moisturizers and oils, many people look for a more permanent solution.

Dry skin can be the product of poor nutrition. This means improving one’s diet can be the best way to handle dandruff in the long-term. The key lies in getting plenty of fruits and vegetables. But not just any – it is wise to choose those that have plenty of anti-oxidants and beta-carotene.

These dietary choices can help a person reduce the chance they’ll have dry skin, which can be a great help in the fight against beard dandruff. Even for those who only experience minor issues, a healthy diet can be a great solution.

What if the Problem of Beard Dandruff Persists?

Some people have been plagued by dandruff all their lives. For those who have beards, this can be a bigger problem than it is for most.

Even with special shampoos, beard-specific moisturizers, and a healthy diet, some people find their problem still persists. If this is the case, it can be a good idea to consult a dermatologist. Sometimes dry skin can result from rare genetic conditions or hormonal imbalances.

Dry skin that persists to excessive levels can also be a sign of more serious illnesses, meaning a trip to the local physician can help a person find out about more serious problems their beard dandruff could be a sign of.

Whether a symptom of a bigger problem or a simple inconvenience, beard dandruff is something nobody wants to deal with. Using the right steps, it is possible to enjoy a thick facial mane without the unsightly flakes.
