Care tips: Beard care sets in comparison: These gadgets care for your decorative hair

Eyelashes and eyebrows protect the eyes, armpit hair helps regulate temperature, nose hair is a natural air filter and pubic hair increases the body's odor. Research is only divided about the function of beard hair; after all, a good 50 percent of the population does not naturally have a beard. And that's not all: According to National Geographic, beard hair has more bacteria than dog fur. Proper care of the decorative hair is therefore essential. But what actually belongs in a good beard care set?

If you want to grow a beard, you need patience above all. And after the first few weeks it becomes apparent that beard hair has a mind of its own. They sprout, scratch and stick out in all directions. Before beard wearers treat it with oil or wax, it needs to be cleaned.

That's why every beard care set should contain a beard shampoo. Sure, most men are now thinking: Why not use the normal shampoo for your hair on your beard too? Quite simply: because the scalp is different from the more sensitive facial skin and because beard hair has a different texture than head hair.

The beard then needs to be combed or brushed into shape. A beard care set without at least one of the two gadgets is of little use. Once the hair has been sorted, beard wearers have two options for shaping it: beard oil and beard wax.

Beard oil nourishes the hair and prevents itchy skin. A problem that many beard wearers know all too well. It also gives the hair shine. However, oil does not bring particularly unruly hair into shape. A beard wax or balm can help here.

When it comes to grooming for men, L'Oréal is of course a must. The manufacturer offers a beard care set that contains everything that beard wearers need for the daily care of their facial hair. In addition to a beard shampoo, it contains a comb, beard oil and beard wax. It's all packed in a stylish jute bag. A good start for beard care beginners.

The Brooklyn Soap Company's beard care set, on the other hand, is a little more expensive. Buyers will look in vain for a comb. A brush is included in the set for this. In addition to beard wax, oil and shampoo, there is also a beard cream. It is used to care for the facial skin under the beard and is applied after cleaning it and before oil and wax.

The beard care set from Bartformat is a little more extensive in terms of gadgets. It includes both a brush and a comb. Of course it also contains beard shampoo, oil and balm. And as one of the few sets, the manufacturer also includes a pair of scissors. But beginners should use them carefully. Not that the laboriously grown beard is unintentionally spoiled. Nice: A toiletry bag is also included in the set.

The beard care professionals at Monkeybeard offer the most comprehensive set with nine pieces. Although this is somewhat rumored by the manufacturer. The gift box in which the eight gadgets are located is also mentioned as part of the set. Curious: Monkeybeard is missing a shampoo. Of course, the set includes beard oil and balm.

When it comes to pure care, the set is not as extensive as one might think. Bearded shoppers also get a stencil to help style their beard, a travel bag and an apron to protect clothing from beard hair. Also included are a beard brush, scissors and a comb.

If you already own a comb, brush or scissors, you should take a look at the King C. Gillette beard care set. Gillette limits its set to the essentials and only provides it with oil, balm and shampoo and does without any other bells and whistles.

The finale is an all-rounder from the manufacturer Charlemagne. It is slightly more expensive compared to other care products. However, the manufacturer promises a 30-day money-back guarantee if you are completely dissatisfied. The set consists of four parts: scissors, oil, balm and a comb.
