Frequently Asked


Why a special shampoo for beards?

When washing their beards, most men just let whatever drips down from washing their hair do the job. This is probably because regular shampoo tastes very bitter and applying it directly around the mouth area is unpleasant. But because beards are directly exposed to foods, drinks, and smoking products, they deserve to be treated better. Beardsley’s mild-flavored botanical formula makes it a pleasure for a man to wash his beard as often and as thoroughly as he likes.


Can you use beard shampoo on your hair too?

Yes. What’s good for your beard is also good for your hair. So it’s a good idea to use beard shampoo on your hair, but not a good idea to use hair shampoo on your beard.


What about men with moustaches?

Beardsley shampoos are perfect for moustaches too. It will just last you twice as long.


What if you are just starting to grow a beard?

When you stop shaving, your skin may react by producing more dead cells. They often get trapped in the bristles of the new beard growth, causing irritation. Frequent washing with Beardsley shampoo is an excellent way to avoid this problem. Many new beard wearers find that Beardsley’s botanical ingredients are especially soothing to the skin in the first weeks of growth.


Do you ever use the Lotion and the Oil at the same time?

No. The best approach is to use the Lotion as part of the morning routine to keep beard hair manageable. The Oil is great to use in the evening to help the hair stay hydrated, and it doesn't leave marking on pillows or clothing with recommended usage. However, using both together does not assist in improving the whiskers; in fact, it inhibits the Oil from absorbing due to the superior de-tangling ability the Lotion provides.


Does Beardsley Beard Shampoo prevent itching?

Absolutely. Wash and rinse thoroughly at the onset of itching and you will notice an immediate improvement. Continue daily use until the itching stops. It may come back eventually, but Beardsley Shampoos will keep it under control.


Why do you also need a Conditioner?

Beardsley Conditioner is designed to soften the facial hair and help keep your beard from drying out. It is particularly effective on longer whiskers, and makes a nice finish to your beard-washing experience.


Are Beardsley products vegan?

None of our products contain animal-derived ingredients, and they are not tested on animals (unless you count humans as animals!)
