Dos and Donts for beard wearers in hot weather

Karl-Marx-007

With temperatures of 30C and above across much of the UK the Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has produced a guide for beard wearers covering what is prudent for the beard in hot weather and what is not.

Don’t
Don’t expose the beard hairs and follicles to the sun for any longer than 5 minutes at a time. The sun can dry out hairs and follicles and cause a withering effect.
Don’t use beard oils or waxes. In hot weather they may drip and may cause the beard to become sticky with beard hairs tangled*
Don’t shave off the beard unless absolutely unavoidable, for example you are already working in a very hot environment

Do
Do cool the beard by placing it from time to time in a freezer compartment for a few seconds (no longer)
Do cool the beard by dipping it in craft beer from time to time
Do trim the beard as appropriate to the heat
