Beard Campaigners publish updated beard care guidelines after ‘dirt’ story

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, that campaigns against beardism, irrational prejudice against the hirsute, has said that it has issued updated guidelines on beard care following media stories that beards are dirty.

The campaigners say that they don’t believe that research suggesting that beards carry more dirt than other parts of the body are well founded and that versions of the story have been circulating since at least 2015

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, even though we doubt the credibility of beard/dirt research we do want to underline that the vast majority of beard wearers take great care with their beards. Indeed there is a booming industry in beard preparations, oils and balms.

Guide to Beard Care

1] The Beard should be thoroughly washed each morning

2] At this point beard oil may be applied if desired to ensure the beard hairs are in peak condition

3] Check for split ends and out of place beard hairs and trim the beard as appropriate

4] During the day check the beard from time to time, particularly after eating foods such as pasta or BBQ to ensure that there has been no beard impact.

5] In the evening re-apply beard oil to ensure the beard remains in peak condition. Alternatively a brief marination in a glass of imperial stout will nourish the beard hairs
