Itchy Beard? How To Stop Your Beard From Itching

 If you have ever tried to grow a beard, you have experienced beard itch. Some have itchier beards than others. The question is, why do beards itch in the beginning? And what can I do to reduce the irritation and itch?

For most new beardsmen, the itch will stop within three weeks. Stay strong. It will subside. But, what causes the itch in the first place?

Instigators of Itch

When you shave, the razor cuts your coarse whiskers at an angle that leaves them with a sharp edge. As your whiskers grow, that sharp edge can scratch and irritate your skin, resulting in itch. In some cases, the razor will actually elevate and cut your whiskers. When the razor passes, the whiskers retreat below the skin. As they begin to grow again, that sharp edge digs into your skin as it grows toward the surface. Itchy.

Below is a microscopic look at whiskers cut by razors. The left image is from a blade, the right was cut by an electric razor.

The second causation of beard itch is dry skin. We have all experienced itch as a result of dry skin. The skin below your beard can become dry and intrinsically itchy. Combine this with sharp, coarse edges rubbing against said dry skin and you'll get an itch that would make a flea proud.

Itchy beard is one of the prime reasons we created our Face Moisturizer and Beard Conditioner.

How do we reduce this? First, we condition and soften the beard with natural botanicals and conditioners. This lessens the capacity of your whiskers to incite itch. Then, we sooth and hydrate the skin with moisturizers and aloe to prevent the itching sensation associated with dryness and irritation caused by whisker rub.

Now go forth without fear and grow a beard.
