Keep it shapely with a Jericho beard brush NZ

Beard owners in New Zealand rejoice! There are countless benefits to adhering to a daily beard brush. When you first start noticing your beard taking shape, you must begin coaxing it into place, because as it grows longer, you might notice it developing its own personality, one that might not agree with the direction you want it to grow in! A daily brush is the right tool to help you stay in control, and New Zealand beards can tame, groom, and style their whiskers to their satisfaction every day. 

Brushing your beard once a day helps distribute the oils naturally produced by your skin throughout your beard. Beard hair is a lot more sensitive than the hair on our head, and you need to be actively distributing the natural oils your body produces to keep your beard's natural shine. Of course, if you need a bit of help, our New Zealand Beard oils can lend some assistance. 


What makes the Jericho beard brush or comb unique?

Beard brushes and combs are designed specifically for facial hair, and as such, they differ from traditional hair combs and brushes in a few key areas. For one, beard brushes and combs are much smaller in size, since the average beard is significantly shorter than the average head of hair.

Additionally, beard brushes and combs have softer bristles than their hair counterparts - this helps to avoid irritating the skin underneath the beard. Finally, many beard brushes and combs feature unique shapes or teeth patterns that are optimised for styling and detangling facial hair without pulling or snagging.


Why boar bristles?

Each of the beard brush New Zealand collection features 100% natural and soft boar bristles. But why do we use those? The answer is pretty simple: these boar bristles naturally glide through your beard hair when you are brushing and styling your beard. Gliding is important for a facial hair brush, as any snags will pull out your carefully grown hairs. 

Board bristles gently massage any oil or balm into your beard and skin while brushing, leading to irritant-free skin, and, most importantly, a healthy beard. By brushing out the dead, flaky skin from your hairs, boar bristles also act as an exfoliant for the skin beneath your beard. The benefits of a beard brush make it an absolutely essential item for anyone in New Zealand who is serious about their beard, and keeping a smooth and clean appearance. 


Beard Combs vs. Beard Brush - What’s the Difference? 

There's a lot of debate out there about which is better for your beard - a comb or a brush. And to be honest, there isn't really a clear answer. It depends on your own personal preferences and what works best for your beard.


Here's a quick breakdown of the differences between combs and brushes:

Beard combs usually have wide teeth that are spaced apart. This makes them great for detangling knots and tangles in your beard. They can also help to evenly distribute oil and product throughout your beard -  ideal for beard styling. 

Beard brushes are usually made from bristles, which are stiffer than the bristles on a regular hairbrush. This makes them great for scrubbing your beard clean, and for training your beard to grow in a certain direction. Beard brushes can also help to stimulate blood flow to the hair follicles, which can promote healthier beard growth.

So, which should you use? Like we said, it really depends on your own personal preferences. If you're someone who likes a well-groomed beard with no knots or tangles, then a beard comb is probably a better choice for you. If you're someone who likes a more natural look, or if you have a thicker beard that tends to get tangled easily, then a brush might be the better option.

When all is said and done, you can't go wrong with brushing or combing your beard.


Why Should I Use a Beard Comb or Brush?

If you're like most guys, you probably don't put a lot of thought into which beard comb or brush you use. But the truth is, using the right tool for your facial hair can make a big difference in how your beard looks and feels.

The Jericho Beard Comb (now available in NZ) also has wide teeth that are spaced evenly, so it can easily detangle even the thickest long length beards.

Using a good beard comb or brush will help to keep your facial hair looking its best, no matter its length. It will also help to distribute the natural oils from your skin, which can keep your beard looking healthy and shiny. So, if you're serious about taking care of your facial hair, make sure you invest in a quality comb or brush from Jericho and have it shipped directly to your door in New Zealand.


Can a Beard Brush Prevent Ingrown Hairs?

If you suffer from ingrown hairs, then you know how frustrating they can be. Luckily, there is a way to help prevent them: by using a beard comb.

Beard combs help to evenly distribute the natural oils in your hair, which can help to prevent ingrown hairs. Combing also helps to exfoliate the skin beneath your beard, which can further reduce the risk of ingrown hairs.

So, if you're looking for a way to help keep your beard looking its best - and to help reduce the risk of ingrown hairs - add a beard brush or comb to your beard care regiment.


Why Wooden Beard Combs Rock

There are several advantages to using a wooden beard comb as opposed to other types of combs. For one, wood is a much more durable material than plastic, meaning that your comb will last longer. Additionally, wood is a natural material that won't cause static like plastic can, so your beard will stay smoother and more manageable. Finally, wood combs simply look and feel better than their plastic counterparts when combing - they just have a more luxurious feel to them. So, if you're looking for a higher-quality comb that will last longer and keep your beard looking its best, go with a wooden option.


How to Brush Your Beard with Jericho Combs

If you've never used a beard comb before, don't worry - it's not as complicated as it might seem. In fact, once you get the hang of it, you'll wonder how you ever managed without one! Here's a step-by-step guide to using a beard comb: 

  1. Start with clean, dry hair. It's important to comb your beard when it's free of any dirt or product build-up, so that the comb can glide through easily. 
  1. If your beard is particularly long or thick, you might want to start by using a brush to detangle it before combing. This will make the process easier and help prevent breakage.
  1. Hold the comb so that the teeth are pointing downwards and start at the roots of your beard. This step exfoliates the skin beneath your beard. Slowly work the comb through to the tips, taking care not to tug too hard - you don't want to damage your hair.
  1. Comb in the direction you want your beard to grow. This will help train your hair to grow in the desired direction and can also help prevent tangles. 
  1. Once you've combed through your entire beard length, take a look in the mirror to make sure everything is in place. You might want to use a bit of beard oil or balm to tame any flyaway hairs and give your beard a healthy shine.
