Why Your Beard Grow In a Different Color Than Your Hair

Here’s the science behind your two-tone

Ever wonder why your beard and hair look like they belong to two separate people? Your hormones are likely cuing the hue.

An excess of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) has been implicated in androgenic alopecia, a.k.a. male-pattern baldness. The odd part: Too much DHT can also boost facial hair growth.

These follicles are more active than the ones up top, so they also age more quickly. Toss in a surfeit of male sex hormones that can reduce your body’s ability to pump out hair-darkening melanin, and salt-and-pepper scruff seems inevitable.

Have a brown mop but a ginger beard? Your mug may be genetically wired to produce a high level of pheomelanin, a form of melanin that gives hair a rusty cast. Your options: Dye it, shave it, or go two-tone with one of the 6 Best Ways to Groom Your Facial Hair.

Guys, After knowing this I would like to give you some tips for your beard

Keeping a beard clean

  • Just like your hair, wash and shampoo your beard regularly. A mild shampoo is easier on your skin.
  • After shampooing, you may use a conditioner. Be sure to rinse thoroughly. Failure to rinse sufficiently may result in flaking. Because beard hairs are so coarse, conditioners will have less effect on the beard than on the hair on your head. But a conditioner will still help make your beard feel softer.
  • Gently pat and wipe your beard dry with a towel. Blow drying is not really necessary and can be harsh on your skin.
  • Comb your beard and mustache with a wide-toothed comb to remove tangles. Optionally, you can finish up by using a brush.
