The Ultimate Guide to Beard Co-Wash: Keep Your Beard Soft, Moisturized, and Healthy

Beard co-wash is a crucial step in any beard care routine. It involves washing your beard with a specialized conditioner that is specifically designed to clean and condition the beard hair and skin. This type of Product is gentler than regular beard shampoos and is formulated to provide extra moisture to the beard, leaving it soft, healthy, and well-conditioned. In this guide, we'll take a deep dive into beard co-wash and show you how to get the best results for your beard.

What is Beard Co-Wash?

Beard co-wash is a term that stands for "conditioner-only wash." Instead of using traditional shampoo, you use a specially formulated conditioner that is designed to clean and moisturize the beard without stripping away its natural oils. This type of conditioner is usually made with nourishing ingredients such as argan oil, shea butter, and jojoba oil, which help to hydrate and protect the beard.

Why Use Beard Co-Wash?

Using a regular head shampoo on your beard can be harsh and damaging. Regular shampoos are designed for the scalp, not the beard, and can strip away the natural oils that are necessary for keeping the beard healthy and soft. This can lead to beard dandruff, itching, and beard hair that is brittle and dry. By using a beard co-wash instead of traditional shampoo, you can avoid these issues and keep your beard looking its best.

How to Co-Wash Your Beard

Co-washing your beard is easy and can be done in just a few simple steps. Here's how to do it:

  1. Wet your beard thoroughly with warm water.
  2. Apply a generous amount of beard co-wash to your beard and massage it in, working from the roots to the tips.
  3. Allow the co-wash to sit in your beard for 2-3 minutes to allow the ingredients to penetrate and nourish the beard hair and skin.
  4. Rinse the co-wash out of your beard thoroughly with warm water.
  5. Towel-dry your beard and apply a beard oil, butter or beard balm to add extra moisture and protection.

Benefits of Beard Co-Wash

There are many benefits to using a beard co-wash, including:

  • Moisturized beard hair and skin: Beard co-wash helps to hydrate the beard, leaving it soft and moisturized.
  • Healthy beard: By avoiding harsh shampoos that strip away natural oils, you can maintain the health of your beard and avoid issues like dandruff and itching.
  • Improved beard growth: Proper beard care, including the use of a beard co-wash, can promote healthy beard growth.
  • Better beard appearance: A well-moisturized beard will have a healthier, more attractive appearance.


Beard co-wash is a must-have for any man who wants to keep his beard looking its best. By using a gentle, moisturizing conditioner, you can avoid the damaging effects of traditional shampoos and keep your beard healthy, soft, and moisturized. So go ahead and give it a try today!

    About 6 weeks ago I decided to grow a beard for the first time, my sons recommended your website. Ordered the 1912 and Fall Harvest oils. Love both but the Fall Harvest is beyond amazing. The beard butter and cowash are also amazing. We love your products and you have a great website. I’ve been spreading the word about it. We also look forward to your Luxurious Lounge episodes. Wishing you a happy successful year and thank you for providing the best products on the planet.

    Thanks for the comment, Robert, My co wash is meant to be rinsed out unlike the butter that is meant to be left in. Thank you for the kind words.
