How to tame a frizzy beard

Oct 20

Frizzy beard hair is a common problem that affects both men and women. It can be caused by genetics, diet, stress or harsh shampoos. It only takes a little bit of patience to learn how to get rid of frizzy beard hair permanently!

What are the causes?

Aside from genetics, there are several other factors that can lead to frizzy beard hair.


Changes in diet can cause some men to experience more frizzling of the beard hairs than others, especially if they are on a fatty or greasy diet (think steak and potato chips). Switching to more vegetables and lean meats like fish or poultry will help reduce this problem.


Studies have shown that stress can make frizzy hair worse. This is because stress causes the sebaceous glands to release a high level of hormones, which makes your skin produce a lot more oil. Your skin produces an increased amount of oil in response to the hormone, and the extra oil leads to hair sticking out, which leads to frizzy hair.

Harsh shampoos 

Most modern men use shampoo that is filled with chemicals and sulfates, which can cause beard hairs to become brittle and weaker than they should be - especially if your scalp also produces a high level of oil. Over time, this leads to frizzy beard hair because the hairs are not strong enough to hold the weight of the extra oil from your scalp. But if you use a quality beard shampoo, you can stop this problem before it happens!


How do I tame a frizzy beard?

The answer is simple: switch to a high-quality, natural beard shampoo that has been specially formulated to reduce protein loss.

Protein loss? 

Yes, protein loss. Many shampoos use harsh chemicals that strip the natural oils from your hair and skin, which causes beard hairs to become brittle and break off more easily than normal. Eventually, these harsh shampoos cause hair to be so weak that it can't support the oil produced by the sebaceous glands (and the sebaceous glands become overactive), which leads to beard hairs sticking out and becoming frizzy.
