Most regular shampoos were designed for the hair on top of your head and not your beard. The main difference is that the chemicals found in regular shampoos will dry your beard and the skin underneath. On the other hand, shampoos that are made specifically for beards will keep your facial hair soft and will moisturize your skin.
Both products do the same thing: wash and condition your beard and moisturize the skin. However, beard shampoos will provide better conditioning. So if you’re looking for a super soft beard, go with a shampoo. Otherwise, give soaps a try.
Bluebeards Original Beard Shampoo it’s my number one choice when it comes to beard shampoos. First, it does an amazing job cleaning the beard. Nothing gets left behind! Second, the extra conditioning agents (Aloe, Vitamin E) make the beard super soft. I am yet to find a beard washing product that will make my beard more manageable. And third, this shampoo is made for sensitive skin, which is great for getting rid of dandruff.

Billy Jealousy Beard Wash is a great product that will leave your beard clean and soft. It’s my second choice because after I use it, my beard just doesn’t fell “as good” as when I wash it with Bluebeards shampoo. However, the reason I love this product is because of the natural ingredients found in it: aloe leaf juice softens and hydrates your beard and skin; soy protein shines and conditions; honey extract nourishes and protects; and green tea extract stimulates hair growth.
If you’re on a budget, nobody can beat the Spartans Den’s beard shampoo in terms price and quality. It does a great job removing dirt and grime and it’s gentle on your skin and beard. It also contains tons of natural oils that nurture and moisturize your beard and skin.
