Ultimate Guide for Beard and Mustache Tint
Kings, when it comes to your beard, there are numerous ways to improve the appearance of your facial hair. You have the option to dye it or shape it, with a wide range of dyes and tints available on the market. A well-groomed beard can truly elevate your complexion. One way to achieve a polished look is through beard tinting. Whether you choose to be clean shaven, have a bit of stubble, or embrace a full beard, there’s one thing most people can agree on: the best beard is one that is cared for.
In this guide, we will show you everything that you need to know about tinting your beard! Whether you want to try out a different color, cover up some greys, or just brighten the hair you already have, Godefroy's Barbers Choice line has got you covered!
Getting Familiar with the Products
When looking for the right products to tint your beard, choosing a tint that is designed for a variety of facial hair is important. This is because the shade of your beard will match the color of your mustache and sideburns. Take Barbers Choice 3 Capsule Kit, for example. The shade range of light/medium brown, dark brown, natural black and jet black allow you to find the right color in respect to your hair and complexion.
Tints for Graying Beards
If you have a beard that is graying, you might want to consider embracing the look. Maybe even...go bolder! Gray beards can tend to look patchy or have yellow and brassy tones. Instead of fleeing to color, stay and enhance your beard. Gray Enhancing Beard Cream is perfect for highlighting existing gray hair.
If you have no idea where to begin, we’ve got you covered! If your beard is less than 75% gray and you want to add color, then the Beard and Mustache Color Tint Kit would be ideal. On the other hand, if you have more than 75% gray and want to embrace the “Silver Fox” look, the Gray Enhancing Beard Cream will work wonders.
Patch Testing and Preparing for Application
Before applying any products, including those from Godefroy Beauty or other beauty brands, it is always recommended to perform a patch test before fully applying any product all over. To perform a patch test, wash your arm and pat dry. Mix up a small amount of dye by putting equal parts tint capsule and developer in a bowl. Apply a small amount of the mixture to the inside of your arm and keep dry for the following 24 hours.
If there are no signs of allergic reactions, such as burning, redness, or itching, you are good to proceed. If there are signs of an allergic reaction, immediately wash the product off and discontinue use. If the irritation persists, please contact a medical professional.
Using Barbers Choice products is a straightforward process. Before putting together, the mixture, make sure to brush through your beard (or wherever you may be applying the tint to) using the enclosed comb. Then, mix the appropriate amount of capsule tint and developer in an equal one to one ratio, let stand for five minutes, then mix them again before applying.
Begin by covering the areas with the grayest hairs, then apply generously throughout your hair. After allowing the tint to process, you can remove the dye by rinsing it through with water. If you wish to obtain darker colors, simply re-apply the colorant and let it process for about 2-3 minutes longer. Afterwards, rinse out then wash with shampoo to ensure no colorant stays on the skin to avoid irritation or staining.
To use the Silver Fox Gray Enhancing Beard Cream, simply apply a dime sized amount of product to your facial hair in the morning, either every morning or every other morning. It is a leave-in conditioner, so there is no need to wash it out. However, please note that since it is a leave-in conditioner and NOT a dye, it requires a daily application.
How to get the best results
To enhance your tinting experience, consider these tips:
1. Selecting the right shade
Choose a color that complements your natural beard color. A tip for finding the right shade is to look at your hair color. Normally, the right beard tinting shade is one color lighter than your head hair.
2. Perform regular maintenance: Plan for touch-ups as your beard grows and new hair appears.
Many beard tints are semi-permanent. Semi-permanent beard tints will last an estimated 6 weeks before touch ups need to be made. Pay attention to your beard color, checking for faded areas. Keeping up with color maintence make your facial hair appear well groomed!
3. Maintain skincare routine
Continue to cleanse, moisturize, and condition your beard for healthy hair growth. Additionally, we recommend using a color-keeping shampoo and conditioner , especially if you are tinting or dying your facial hair.
