How to Straighten Beard With Chemicals

Use Straightening Shampoo to Straighten Your Beard

The first method you can use to straighten beard with chemicals is using a straightening shampoo. Straightening shampoo uses chemicals that soften your hair as the shampoo is lathered into your beard. When your beard is softened, it causes it to relax and straighten.

Aside from being easy to use, straightening and softening shampoo also helps moisturize your beard, potentially protecting it from becoming damaged by other chemicals.

To use straightening shampoo to straighten your beard, you will need to wash your beard at least once a week. This will help ensure that your beard stays soft.

The ingredients you need to look for in straightening shampoo include aloe vera, caffeine, biotin, and eucalyptus oil. Any shampoo that uses these ingredients will help your beard soften and straighten. 

 

Use Beard Oils and Beard Creams to Straighten Your Beard

Beard oils and beard balms help straighten your beard, and you can use them on a daily basis.

Beard Oil

Beard Oil

Look for a beard oil that contains tea tree oil, avocado oil, olive oil, jojoba oil, or argan oil. These are the softest oils that will soften and straighten your beard when applied.

Follow the directions listed on your beard oil to ensure you get the best results. Typically, you will only need about two drops of beard oil for the oil to soften and straighten your beard.

Take the drops of beard oil and rub them together in your hands. Then, massage the beard oil into your beard, starting at the base of your chin. You can use a beard comb to make sure that the oil covers all of the hairs in your beard.

 

Beard Balm

You can also use a beard balm relaxer that will straighten your beard by softening and relaxing the hairs to make them straight.

A relaxing beard balm uses a combination of oils, butter, and vitamins that work together to soften and straighten the beard. For example, the Bossman Magic Relaxing Beard Balm uses cocoa butter, coconut oil, soybean oil, vitamin E, and many others to soften and straighten your beard.

Take a small amount of the beard balm in your palm and rub your hands together. Massage the beard balm into your beard, starting at the root of your bead and working all the way to the tip.

You can also use a beard comb or straightening brush when using the beard balm to make sure that the relaxing balm covers all of the hairs in your beard.

 

Accessories You Can Use

Using a beard comb or brush when straightening your beard with chemicals will help ensure that the chemical you use thoroughly coats all of the hairs in your beard.

Using a beard brush will also reduce the number of times you need to reapply the chemicals, ultimately saving money you would spend using the products too often.

Beard Comb

Beard Comb

The first tool you can use instead of a straightening iron is a beard comb. This wooden beard comb by Viking Revolution has both fine and coarse teeth for the exact application you need. The fine teeth allow the chemicals to cover more individual hairs as you comb the chemicals through the beard.

The coarse teeth of the comb will quickly comb the chemicals through your beard as a whole, rather than covering as many individual hairs in the beard as the fine-tooth side.

 

Beard Brush

Beard Brush

The other tool you can use is the Sosoon Beard Brush. This beard brush comes with 100% boar bristles that will tame any unruly hairs in your beard while also massaging the chemicals you have applied throughout your beard.

You can use a beard brush for routine maintenance when you’re not applying chemicals to your beard. Simply brush your beard with the brush, and it will grab the natural oils from your face and massage them into your beard. This helps you save the chemical products you use by maximizing the results between the times you shampoo your beard.

 

FAQs

Should I blow dry my beard after I have washed it with straightening shampoo?

No, the heat of the blow dryer will make your hair dry and brittle, causing your hair to become hard and curly.

 

Can I make a homemade straightening compound?

Yes, you can use a combination of coconut milk, olive oil, cornstarch, and lemon juice to make your own beard straightening compound.

 

How do you straighten your beard with a beard relaxing cream?

To straighten your beard with a beard relaxer, put on disposable gloves, divide your hair into smaller sections to make it more manageable, and apply the relaxer to each section.

Avoid getting any of the beard relaxers on your skin. You can then use a beard comb to make sure it is evenly distributed and then rinse the beard relaxer off after about thirty minutes of letting it sit.

 

Should I be concerned about the chemicals in beard straightening cream?

Chemical products are an easy way to straighten a beard and make the hair much more manageable. As long as you follow the directions and proceed with caution when using products with chemicals, there is no harm in trying them out.
