You may have heard of beard shampoos? Is it really a thing? Is it different from regular hair shampoo? Yes, some shampoos are designed more specifically for coarse beard hair. Similar to there being various different types of shampoo, for dandruff, for fine hair, for dyed coloured hair etc.
Our Beard Shampoo ingredients get to work on coarse beard hair.
Our Telfer & Ross Beard Shampoo…
SLS free or SLES free beard shampoos, are one of the hottest developments in male cleansing products today.
Health-conscious consumers are increasingly concerned about the chemicals in everything they use, from food to grooming products. Our amazing high end beard care shampoo is exceptional!
Without the use of so many generally accepted ingredients, our formula will not only cleanse, but will also leave an amazing post wash softened feel. Many formulas can contain large amounts of salt (sodium chloride) which is of course can have a drying effect to both the whisker and skin, but as we have excluded this ingredient, we help the body’s natural maintenance and condition of the beard. SLS, SLES, Sodium Chloride and Paraben free!
Why not regular shampoo?
Shampoo bought from high street supermarkets contain chemicals to lengthen shelf life. They are often made with alcohol and silicones which can dry the hair out, making it brittle which can lead to damage and hair breakages. Now that beard care is becoming so popular, some brands are producing chemical filled beard products, so choose wisely.
When we used regular shampoo on our beards here at T&R HQ, we did start to notice dandruff and the hair feeling brittle.
Head hair is finer, so these issues may not be so obvious on your head.
Things to look out for…
Alcohol based products, alcohol dries out the moisture from hair and skin. This happens when you use alcohol based shampoos, but people get caught in the trap of using more to combat the dryness, not realising the damage done. You know the hungover feeling after absorbing copious amounts of alcohol hours earlier, now imagine how your hair is feeling after being doused in the shit, not ideal for growing glorious locks is it?
Silicone based products, it can create the illusion of healthy, smooth feeling hair. But actually what it does is coat the hair and stops any nutrients from your Telfer & Ross Beard oil penetrating and nourishing the hair shaft. If you suffocate the hair, it can lead to damage and break, or fall out.
Really cheap shampoo. We know, shampoo shouldn’t be stupidly expensive right? But, if it’s cheap, it is probably mass-produced, rammed full of chemicals to keep a long shelf life and will most definitely not be good for your hair. Cheap shampoos may strip colour and natural oils from your hair. Avoid them.
How to use Telfer & Ross Beard Shampoo
- In the shower/bath, dispense 1 or 2 pumps into you hand, apply to your wet beard and massage in for around 30 seconds. Our beard shampoo will not lather up as much as conventional shampoos due to the lack of chemicals to do so. Depending whether you are in a soft water or hard water area, (lather) results may vary.
- Make sure you wash all of the shampoo residue out of your beard.
- Once you have gently towel dried it afterwards, apply your favourite Telfer & Ross Beard oil to condition for the rest of the day and enjoy.
