Absolutely not, you say. You’ve been nurturing that beard for months - why would you want to shave it off? Believe it or not, there are several good reasons to shave your beard. We’ve got the lowdown on why it’s a fine idea and have rounded up our favourite Redken Brews hair products that should be part of every men's beard care kit.


Products for Excellent Condition


If you’re going to grow a beard, you want it to look good. You don’t want to look like a grizzly bear with dry, frizzled facial hair, so make sure to add Redken Brews Beard Oil to your beard grooming kit. Ingredients like avocado and olive fruit oil, moisturise and soften beard hair as well as the skin beneath it.


We also recommend Redken Brews 3-in-1 Shampoo, Conditioner & Body Wash to cleanse your skin, hair and beard. Containing malt extract, this is a fantastic product that offers all-in-one convenience while nourishing, strengthening and softening your hair and skin.


Shave for Healthy New Growth


Even if you religiously maintain your beard with high-quality products, you should shave it every few months and let the skin beneath your beard see the light of day. This allows your skin to breathe. You can also exfoliate and moisturise your skin properly, which in turn ensures that your new beard growth is healthy and in good condition.


At the end of the day, facial hair is just hair - it does grow back.

Shave to Beat the Heat


As summer approaches, a heavy beard could become irritatingly itchy and sweaty. Apart from the sheer discomfort, excessive perspiration can result in blocked pores and hair follicles, trapping oil and dirt in the skin beneath your beard. This is altogether unpleasant and definitely something you want to avoid!


If you’re really against going completely bare-faced, consider at least grooming your beard into a shorter style, or opt for designer stubble during the summer months.


At the end of the day, facial hair is just hair - it does grow back. In the long run, shaving periodically is a good thing and will result in a healthier beard next time around.
