1. Choose the Right Color

The first step in coloring your beard is to choose an appropriate color. But the question is how can we get to know what is a good color and how to choose it

Firstly, any beard color that matches your original hair color and the required shade should be selected. Secondly, a color that has natural ingredients, and is free from harsh chemicals like ammonia, can be a good choice. It can suit the skin well because the presence of any harsh chemical on facial skin can be harmful. After all, it can cause severe allergies and irritation.

Here is some good news! Vince’s His Only Beard and Mustache color is an all-in-one solution that differentiates this color from the rest of the beard colors available in the market.

2. Do a Patch Test

Doing a patch test before dying your beard is important. Patch test means applying the color on a small area of your skin to know whether the color is safe to use or not. There might be some side effects of using beard colors.

That is why before using the color on your beard, apply the color on a small area of your skin like the wrist or inner elbow. Leave for some time.

If any irritation is caused, do not apply the color to your beard. But if your skin does not face any sensation, itching, or irritation, this color is safe to go.

3. Wear Gloves

After choosing the appropriate color to dye your beard and having a patch test, the next step is to wear gloves to avoid any sort of staining on your hands. Sometimes the color irritates the skin and can harm it. There is also a probability of staining on the skin. That is why wearing gloves is important.

VINCE HIS ONLY kit comes along with the gloves as well. So if you use HIS ONLY, the whole process will be hassle-free because everything is packed in the box. 

4. Mix Cream and Developer

Mix Cream and Developer

Take out the required quantity of color cream and developer into the mixing tray. (Do not forget to use according to your beard hair needs), Mix them well with the brush given inside the box. The application of beard color should be evenly distributed all over the beard strands to get a thicker look.

5. Apply any Moisturizer Before Application

Another annoying experience associated with the beard coloring process is that the people who apply color usually face staining on the edges of their beard line. This kind of staining looks bad. Particularly when you are a grooming freak.

To avoid such an experience, try to apply any moisturizer on your skin before applying beard color. To avoid such an issue, apply some lotion on the beard line. It will help you to rinse the color easily from your face.

6. Get Your Beard Ready

To get better results, prepare your beard before applying beard color. Remember that the color does not give a good result if the beard contains oil on it. Oil on the beard does not let the color set on the hair cuticles. That is why do not forget to get your beard clean and properly washed before dying. Make sure to get it dry before color application.

7. Apply The Color Correctly

After fulfilling the above-mentioned steps, the next step is to apply the color. Apply it with the help of a given brush. The correct application of color to dye your beard must be used.

Try to cover the entire beard and do not leave any space left uncolored as it might give a patchy look. Make sure that the color you applied has saturated well to every strand of your beard to give even coverage.

Additionally, you can comb through your beard with a wide-tooth wooden comb to ensure full coverage and balancing of excess color.

8. Let The Color Set Well

After applying the color properly, leave it for 10-15 minutes. Do not heat up or rinse during this period. Let the color set properly. Different colors might take different time to set on the beard. But Vince's His Only gives you the desired results within 10-15 minutes.

9. Rinse it Off

After 10-15 minutes, rinse it with fresh water until the water runs clear. Avoid using hot water as it can harm the hair cuticles. It can also harm the facial skin. Using gentle shampoo is also recommended for the beard as hash chemical-based shampoos can damage the hair cuticles.

10. After Color Care

After dying your beard, the last step is to condition it. The color causes a little dryness to the beard. The application of conditioner helps in nourishing the beard, leading to a more nourished, shiny, and better-looking beard.

That is why Vince His Only Beard & Mustache color contains conditioner inside the box for good results and enhanced look. Besides conditioner, you can apply any beard cream or any natural oil to give a more settled and better look.

11. Maintenance

Once you dye your beard, to cover newly grown gray hair, maintenance is important. You may need to apply a touch-up after the regrowth of hair. For the newly grown facial hair, you can have a touch-up application rather than applying color to the entire beard again.
