Wrestle Your Whiskers into Shape with the Best Beard Combs

best beard combs, man with red beard and comb
If you comb your hair, why not your beard? Even the highest-quality beard products can’t groom your whiskers the way a beard comb can. Oils and balms are best distributed with a comb, anyway. And what about when you want to properly shape your beard on your cheek and neckline?

When going on your quest to find a beard comb, consider this: The material of the comb is important for promoting healthy hair follicles. Wood-based combs — or those made of softer, unique materials such as ox horn — tend to offer less snag and pull when combing. Wood bristles also decrease damage to the hair since its smoother going against the skin. Some nylon, metal, and plastic combs are still effective and widely-used, however, someone who has curly hair or a thick beard might run into some unnecessary, annoying, and sometimes painful road blocks. Weight distribution and teeth size are also big factors. A lightweight comb might be great for a shorter, thinner beard, but not so successful when trying to comb out a forest full of whiskers.

We’ve put together a diverse selection of the best beard combs for you to find the one that best suits you and your beard.

Beard Comb Bundle by Bearded Nation – $15
