Beard Care for Black Men by The Mod Cabin

Beard Care for Black Men by The Mod Cabin
December 30, 2019 The Mod Cabin Writer

Black men often email us to ask for tips on how to properly grow and maintain a beard, so we wanted to compile some of our most frequently asked questions here. Black hair is tightly coiled by nature, which is due to the flat, ribbon-like structure of the hair follicle. For this reason, many black men deal with ingrown hairs when caring for their beards. We also hear a lot from men who are dealing with stiff, dry beards. We’ll cover both issues here, share pro tips from readers who have perfected their beard care routine with products from The Mod Cabin, and share a list of beard care essentials like beard oil and balm, and how to use them.

Carl Holding The Mod Cabin All Natural Beard Balm

We asked beard model Carl Battee about the advantages and challenges black men encounter when they decide to grow a beard. “Well being of of two different ethnic backgrounds (black/Hispanic) makes my facial hair much more difficult to manage, so I would say the biggest challenges of growing facial hair as a black man would be not knowing how your hair will look or react to products in the beginning stages of growth.”

Embracing a Beard and Letting It Grow

It’s a good rule of thumb for black men to let their facial hair grow out for 4 to 6 weeks before cultivating their personal beard style. This will allow you to see how your facial hair grows and notice any areas that are patchy or extra thick, which could affect the beard style you choose. Regardless of style, you want to get your beard, and the skin underneath, off to a great start by keeping it properly washed, conditioned, and groomed.

Using The Right Soap

Because black hair needs extra moisture to prevent it from becoming dry and brittle, and because curlier hair is more susceptible to getting trapped under the skin (AKA ingrown hairs) it is important to use beard grooming products that hydrate facial hair and skin.

Unfortunately, most store-bought soaps and shampoos actually dry out your skin and strip your facial hair of necessary oils. We recommend avoiding conventional soaps and synthetic shampoos all together. Instead, we recommend using all-natural hot processed soaps or cleansing oil for beard washing and all-natural beard oils and beard balms for moisturizing and conditioning.

Our favorite beard soap, birch tar, does wonders for not only dry skin and hair — our customers rave about its healing effects related to acne, eczema, and psoriasis. Exfoliate the skin beneath your beard by using your fingertips or a washcloth for maximum cleansing and to remove any dry flaky skin that may be hiding beneath your beard.

After Washing, Use a Quality Beard Oil

Look for beard oils crafted with unrefined jojoba and pure argan oil — these oils act the most like your own natural oils, making them easy for your face and skin to absorb. Make sure any added scents in the beard oil are made with all-natural essential oil blends rather than unidentified “fragrance,” which can be full of harsh chemicals that can irritate skin and dry out hair. Essential oils, however, can actually have a beneficial effect on skin and facial hair. We recommend using a beard oil after washing your beard, when it’s nearly dry.

For a Thicker Beard and Maximum Moisture, Use a Beard Balm

After applying your beard oil, follow up with a quality, all-natural beard balm. The best beard balms will have the same moisturizers that are found in beard oils, but will also include wax-like substances like shea butter and beeswax to help hold in the moisture and keep your hair and skin hydrated. You’ll also get the added benefit of a thicker-looking beard.

PRO TIP: For a smoother and shinier beard, after washing, give it a final rinse with cold water to help seal and smooth the hair cuticle.

Carl Battee, Mod Cabin Man and beard model, shares his tips

A lot of guys don’t know what tools to use when starting their beard journey, according to Carl Battee, Mod Cabin Man and beard model. “When I first started to grow my beard I didn’t know the dos and don’ts, what was needed, and the time it would take to manage a good sizable beard. My advice to anyone who’s thinking or just starting to grow a bit of facial hair is always keep a good boars hair beard brush and beard comb handy to keep the mane looking good throughout the day.”

Your Beard Care Checklist

When you decide to grow a beard, make sure you have the following items to help get you started on the right track:

  1. Beard Soap – Use all-natural, hot-processed soaps, which won’t strip your skin and hair of natural oils.
  2. Beard Oil – Use beard oils that contain jojoba and pure argan oil. Stick with essential oils and avoid products that use synthetic fragrances.
  3. Beard Balm – your beard balm should contain both sealants, such as unbleached shea butter and beeswax, as well as moisturizers, like unrefined jojoba and pure argan oil.
  4. Beard Brush – Boar’s hair brushes are best for distributing oils and balms evenly through facial hair, due to the natural scales along the boar’s hair bristles.
  5. Beard Comb – The best beard combs have teeth with smooth edges. Cheap combs will have teeth with sharp edges, which will cause facial hair to snap or break when combing.
  6. Mustache Comb – It may sound unnecessary, but a well made mustache comb can make a huge difference in how your facial hair appears. A mustache comb will have finer teeth for more precise styling.

    As a black man with a beard. I have found our washing routine is soo important. I use to think because of my wavy textured beard hair I’d never have a soft beard. So untrue. My beard is soft, ad even straight-wavy textured with a good washing routine. Mod cabins are the best products i he used for my beard. I wash only on Sundays, the rest of the days I just cold water rinse at night. No matter how many times ive tried hot ad warm water make my beard wirey and frizzy. After I rinse my beard with cold water at night I apply mod cabins sweetheart beard oil. When I wake up to go to work I use backwoods balm. Wow. Beard is amazing all day.

    • The Mod Cabin 6 years ago

      Hi, Jae! Thanks for sharing your tips. That’s really important to note that how often a person washes their beard should really vary based on the individuals physiology. The cold water rinse is a great tip. Warm water opens our hair follicles, which can cause a frizzy appearance. Cold water closes our follicles and can make them appear smoother and shinier. Even for people who wash their hair or beard daily, it’s a good idea to give your hair a cold water rinse once you’re done. Thanks for sharing!

      Based on the wealth of knowledge found in this article as well as the routines of some of its users, i found myself compelled to purchase your products. As an African American Male the insight provided was directly in line with what i was looking for. It has been one day..and using the products along with Jae’s routine as well as the bearded critic’s has left my beard already slightly softer. I am already impressed and look forward to seeing these products evolve my beard. Beard oil, beard balm, hot pressed beard wash soap, mustache wax #2 (gonna wait until my moustache is a bit longer)

    I decided to grow my beard a few years ago, MAINLY BECAUSE of the ingrown hair problem. I could never use a manual blade (like a Gillette Mach 5 or whatever) bc it would make my face break out and burn within 10 mins, and last for DAYS. Due to that, i have always used an electric razor, and that stopped the ingrown hairs, for the most part. I still found i got them on my neck, and close to the corner of my jawline. Once i stopped shaving, they stopped!

    My biggest issue with my beard right now, seems to be I’ve hit a length that even possible…I just can’t seem to grow it any longer than it is now. I havent trimmed it in a few months, and when i did, it was just to clean up the stragglers and to shape it up. Even when I went over a year without cutting/shaving/trimming it, it seemed to hit a wall. Any suggestions for a black guy to grow a longer beard??

    I noted the cold water rinse tip, and will definitely give that a shot!! Is there a Mod cabin starter kit?? haha


    • The Mod Cabin 5 years ago

      Hi Shamar. Thanks for the comments. Everyone eventually reaches “terminal beard length.” That is where there beard will not grow any longer.

      Some men can grow their beard for two or three years before reaching terminal growth. With other men its more like 2 to 3 months. Everyone has a terminal length, you want to find out if you’ve reached terminal length or if something inhibiting your beard growth.

      Facial hair follicles grow cyclically; they grow, fall out and grow again. If something is interfering with the cycle your beard will never reach terminal length. The most likely causes are clogged pores or skin stirpped of necessary oils.

      I would focus on washing and scrubbing with an all-natural soap to remove any impediments to beard growth.

      We recommend starting with our beard kit

      Thanks. 🙂

    My beard seems to stop growing at a certain length. It grows good on the chin part but under my neck and on the sides don’t grow as long as my chin part. Anything i can do for the sides and under my neck to grow fuller?? I’m trying to get it to sprout out more

    • The Mod Cabin 5 years ago

      Hi, Daryl.

      First, it’s very normal for hair of any sort to grow at slightly different rates. You can minimize the appearance of uneven hair by purchasing a good beard trimmer and watching some tutorials on how to trim your beard properly. Keeping all the hair trimmed to the same length will help make your beard appear thicker. You would only need to do this once every two weeks or so, and you can trim it to longer lengths each time.

      Also, be mindful of what you wash your face and facial hair with. You need to avoid washing your facial hair with any harsh chemicals like store bought shampoo and some soaps, which can damage and dry out your newly forming hair follicles beneath the skin. You could try our all natural hot processed soap found here:, or if you’re in a very dry climate you may be better off using our cleansing oil found here: Use our cleansing oil just like you would a shampoo. It won’t lather up, but you’ll get the same cleansing properties without it stripping your hair of it’s natural oils.

      Next, clogged pores can prevent hair from growing in properly, so using a washcloth when washing your face and facial hair is beneficial.

      Also, keep that skin and facial hair moisturized! Use quality all natural beard oil. You can find those here: Be sure and massage the oil into your skin, too, so that it can help nourish the new beard growth beneath the skin.

      And there’s no way around it. Our overall health also determines the health of our hair. Drink lots of water, and take a biotin supplement.

      That should get you off to a good start! Good luck!

    I’m just joining the beardgang (1 week now) I’m so glad I cane to this site WOW, so much I didn’t know. Thank you for sharing, I’m going to ourchase your product here so I can start my journey right. My question is, can I use these products on my regular hair? Because Im receding, I keep a very low cut, but my hair lacks moisture and sometimes that fullness appeal. If you cant use on regular hair do u have products that you can?

    • The Mod Cabin 5 years ago

      Hi, Lee!

      A lot of customers use our beard oil as a hair tonic. Test it out by applying 1-2 drops of our beard oil in your palm and rub your palms together. Then massage into your hair. Step back and take a look at the results. Only add one more drop at a time. A little goes a LONG way! You can also try this with the Beard Balm. Both products are very healthy for skin and hair.

      Also, I’d suggest using our shampoo bars to cleanse. They’re all natural and don’t contain any harsh chemicals that might damage your hair or scalp, and they are great for making fine hair appear to have more body.

      I hope that helps!

    Hey I am a prospective buyer in Ohio. I’ve been looking for a good beard regimen for black men and you guys came highly recommended. Also, since you’re in Colorado that makes it even better as I use to live out there. Anyway, I was wondering what’s the best scent you recommend if I am looking for a more masculine scent. I’ve read your scent descriptions but still don’t know which fits my criteria lol. Also, what would you recommend I do to help fill in the patches in my beard? I have an overall decent beard but it has a few patchy parts on the sides. Looking forward to trying your products!

    • The Mod Cabin 5 years ago

      Hi, Valerian!

      Thanks for your question! I’d recommend our Miner’s Mint scent. It’s our most popular scent.

      With a patchy beard, it’s important to be patient. And obviously, our hair growth is affected by our health, so good nutrition and drinking lots of water is important. Beyond that, be sure to use natural products on your face, because synthetic chemicals can damage hair. I’d recommend our Core Beard Kit. It has natural, moisturizing soap, and beard oil and beard balm to provide nourishment for the hair follicles that are forming beneath your skin. Be sure and massage the beard oil into your beard and skin twice a day. If you live in a cold, dry climate you may only want to wash your face/beard every other day to avoid leaching all the moisture from your skin and hair.

      Lastly, while you’re waiting for your beard to fill in, using a beard trimmer to keep all your beard hair trimmed to the same length will work wonders to keep your beard looking well groomed and to help disguise the patchiness.

      I hope that information is helpful! Let me know if you have any other questions!

    I love the beard care checklist for black men trying to grow their beard out. It’s good to know that the beard balm should contain sealants and moisturizers. My husband recently decided he wanted to grow out his beard, I will be sure to pass these tips on to him.

  10. Vonda 5 years ago

    This might be the best thing I’ve ever come across. My boyfriend Malik is trying to grow out his beard mostly because I said I liked it. So now i have to figure out the best way to help it grow. It’s extremely patchy, his chin hair grows really long but the side hair is short and patchy. Also he has bumps underneath his skin that weren’t there before he grew the beard. I have no clue what’s happening, but the bumps make him uncomfortable, I want him to have the beard but not at the expense of his own comfort. Do you have any products that help with what I mentioned above, I would love to surprise him.

    • The Mod Cabin 5 years ago

      I’ll point you in the direction of a product that I’m confident will help relieve his bumps and help him grow a strong, healthy beard. Our Core Beard Kit comes with your choice of all natural soap, beard oil and beard balm, as well as a moustache wax. I’d highly recommend choosing our Birch Tar Soap in the kit. If you read about our Birch Tar Soap you’ll see quite a few reviews from customers talking about how it helped them with their acne, eczema, and psoriasis. I think what your boyfriend might be experiencing are ingrown hairs. Encourage him to exfoliate under his beard when he washes his face. He can use his fingertips or a washcloth to gently scrub the area with Birch Tar Soap.

      Be aware of products that use synthetic ingredients, as these can dry out your hair and cause skin irritation. Your best bet is to stick with all natural products that have been tested on all skin types.

      While he’s waiting for his beard to fill in, using a beard trimmer to keep all his beard hair trimmed to the same length will work wonders to keep his beard looking well groomed and to help disguise the patchiness. Keeping his beard trimmed to a shorter length will while waiting for those sparse spots to fill in will look much better then having a few long, thin areas of facial hair. As the patchy spots begin to fill in, he can begin using longer guards on the beard trimmer.

      I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Hello Mr.Gray, I’m just now recently able to grow a good visible amount of facial hair. I’m 21 I’ll be 22 soon, but I’m predominantly native but also have African roots. Any tips on growth and thickening for new guys? I already steam it and I wash and condition with Mane and Tail. I use a medicated moisturizer because of my skin condition.
    Thanks in advance, Six

    Hi, This would be actually my first time growing out my beard I usually get it trim and shaped up at my barber. Is there any tips or suggestions I should tell my barber before I get my haircut? Also is there anything I should do while I’m in the growing process? Thanks for advice you guys may have.

  13. Charles W 4 years ago

    I’m an African American male with about 3/4 months of beard growth, my chin and lip area is coming in nicely, but my sideburns has some patchy spots. Some friends are telling me to leave it alone and the new growth will cover up the patchy spots but I’ve also heard that if those patchy areas are still there after 2/3 months, it could be my genetics. I really want to grow a nice full and healthy beard. My wife is is truly liking it.

  14. Jackie 4 years ago

    Hi! My husband has been growing his beard for a year now. However, it is extremely coily and curls up really tight. Is there a product that could help straighten his beard more? It’s also a little patchy in an area or two. Thanks in advance!

  15. Adonis 4 years ago

    I am a African American man and I am trying to grow a beard. I have a mustache and goatee now and if I go several weeks without a trip to the barber, I do grow fine hairs along the side of my face but they do not develop into a beard. what can I do to help stimulate my facial hair to grow more into a beard?

  16. larrywilliams1979 4 years ago

    I have been growing my beard off and on for about the past 3 years. I say that because I usually would get frustrated because it does not look how I want it to so then I’d cut it off and go the goatee route. I was not putting anything in it nor did I groom it regularly. I would cringe when it was time to comb it because it would hurt even with a wide tooth comb. So I Googled “black man beard products” and this link was the 1st that popped up. I read the blog as well as the comments and got motivated to give this stuff a try. Man these products have given my beard all kinds of life. The comb now goes through my beard with no pain even if I happen to skip a day of putting oil or balm in it (only happened once) and my beard looks shiny and healthy. Since using the products, I have had a couple guys come up to me asking me what do I use.

    I’m still in the 4-6 week stage of letting it grow to see how I want to style it but here is my routine:

    I wash it every other day (usually in the morning when I take my shower). The soap I use depends on which scent I want to go with that day. Not all scents have a soap. For example, on days I want to wear the Sweetheart scent, I use the Essential (non scented) soap because there is no Sweetheart soap (Are you working on this Mod Cabin?). My favorite scents are Miner’s Mint and Ridge Runner. My lady describes them as manly lol. We also like the Honeysuckle. While the soap is in my beard, I use a scalp massage brush. You can get this for a couple dollars at your local hair & beauty store. This helps with a lot of things such as detangle the beard, increase blood circulation to the hair follicles, and boost the strength of the hair roots. Even on days I do not wash my beard, I do this in the shower. After every shower regardless of if I wash it or not, I give my beard a cold water rinse. As I learned from reading the comments on this blog, cold water closes our follicles and makes the beard look shinier.

    After washing it, I towel dry it but leave it a little wet. I’ll comb it with a detangling comb and then I apply the oil all over the beard. Next I brush my beard with a hard boar bristle brush to help distribute the oils. Honestly, idk if a hard bristle brush is better than a soft one but I prefer the hard one. After combing it again, I apply the balm. Once that is in, I’ll comb it and go about my day.

    At night, I give my beard another cold water rinse and then I do my morning routine all over again. Comb beard with detangling comb while still a lil wet from the rinse, apply oil, brush beard, comb beard, apply balm and comb beard. The last thing I do at night is put on this product called an elastic beard cap. Think of it as a wave cap/durag for your beard. Idk if posting the link is acceptable so I’ll just say google organized beard kit. It cost $20 plus shipping which I think was about $5. This helps keep the products locked in at night and not on your pillowcase/sheets. Also helps train your beard and prevents ingrown hairs.

    My routine is not the only way to maintain your beard but hopefully it helps you get started. Mod Cabin products work, they smell great and you get your products 2-3 days after placing your order!

    Oh I almost forgot… Add biotin and multi vitamins to your daily routine. Biotin helps with hair growth.

    I need some help. I’ve had me beard for the last 5 years and I’ve cut it down from.time to time. Last time I did that was 2 years ago. It’s a hood length now and I don’t plan on cutting again or at least anytime soon. As a black male I have the problem with moisture with my facial hair a d I do things such as washing it with baby shampoo and using leave in conditioner. I blow my beard out because if i dont it will get matted down and look terrible.My problem is trying to keep it moist after blowing it out or when it’s humid or rainy outside it frizzy up.

    I was looking at the beard kit and would like to buy it but only if it would help my problem. Also I shave my mustache so is there a way I can substitute the mustache wax for an additional beard oil or balm?

  23. Daniel 4 years ago

    Interesting info. I’m Black Hispanic and 48 years old. The most I’ve been able to grow is a short beard on the chin and mustache. It connects on one side but not on the other and I barely grow anything on my cheeks. My first dilemma is that I always have women complimenting my smile because of the dimples on each side of my mouth (not cheeks). My second is because I’m usually clean cut, I’ve been asked if I’m gay or pretty boy which I’m not. What’s your suggestion?

  24. Shorty Wop 4 years ago

    Hey Fellas…
    I’m also a Black/Hispanic and I’ve actually never really been a hairy guy (don’t even grow sideburns) and when I do let it grow, they come out looking crazy and pointing everywhere (specially my mustache) so I ended up shaving it off. Now at the tender age of 48, I’ve finally decided to let my facial hair grow and be patient. I stopped shaving about three weeks ago along with taking 15,000 mg of Biotin pills and 5 capsules of Collagen -Pure which has 2000 mg of Collagen and 2500 mg of Biotin per serving daily. While growing a full beard looks impossible, I’m starting to show a decent mustache and short goatee with patchy connectors. I’ve had a good number of compliments on it from women and since dating has been an issue due to my short stature which is 5’6″ (women love taller men), it has been a real motivator! Lol! What products would you suggest to promote more growth? One last question. I use an old tooth brush for my ‘stache and brush the goatee downward. Should I brush the goatee upward?

  29. Kim martin 4 years ago

    My bearded consists of long wavy hair on my chin and very kinky/curly under my chin and on the sides of my face. The hairs are long, but their so kinky/curly that it looks like it never grows out which in turn makes it look patchy. Is there a way I can make it look fuller?

    • The Mod Cabin 2 years ago

      We have a couple of recommendations. 1. Visit a barber for a beard trim, or use a beard trimmer if you’re comfortable with it. Keeping hair trimmed neatly will help it appear thicker by eliminating unevenness in the lenth. 2. Apply any of our beard balms, which are made with organic shea butter, which coat the hair shaft making the beard appear thicker.

    I’ m just starting out with my beard and one of the biggest questions I have, that i have not been able to find a sufficient answer to, is how often should I brush and/or comb my beard on a daily basis? I would greatly appreciate any guidance you can give in this area.

    • The Mod Cabin 3 years ago

      Hi, Rich! Brushing your beard once a day works just fine for most. Remember to only gently comb your beard when if it’s wet, using a handmade comb. (Injection molded combs have sharp edges on the teeth which can break your hair.) Reserve brushing your beard for when it’s mostly dry. We recommend brushing your beard with a quality boar bristle brush after you’ve applied beard oil. This will help distribute the beard oil through your beard, and exfoliate the skin beneath your beard. Brushing also stimulates the skin, which can aid beard growth.

    Does your beard soap contain lauric acid or capric/caprylic acid in your coconut oil?

      All coconut oil contains medium chain fatty acids of several types, but mainly lauric acid, caprylic acid, and capric acid. Thank you for your question!

    Before putting beard oil on your beard its is also important to wash your beard regularly. Beard hairs can cause a lot of bacteria which is not great for your beard and even for your skin. After that you can put organic beard oil. If you are interested to buy beard oil, you can order it from Awilke Branding which is one of the best companies providing best beard oil products.

      Hi, Hulett. We’d recommend our beard care set. It includes your choice of soap, beard oil and beard balm. You can find directions for using these products on the product page. These products are void of harsh chemicals, and have natural ingredients that will nourish your beard and skin, which will help soften and strengthen your beard. Let me know if you have any other questions.

    What is the best beard oil for black men with grey beards? I currently use a tea tree and sandalwood oil and then I beard balm with Maracuja oil and Shea Butter. Looking to see if I am on the right track?
