So how often should you wash your beard? Well it depends on a few factors…
If you hairs are finer they are more likely to look limp the day after a wash so you may want to wash it more frequently. For curly and coarse hairs every 3 days or so may be a better idea. Some people find their beard is more manageable and looks better the day after they’ve washed it as it’s too soft and fluffy on the day itself.
Your individual porosity, city/well water quality and your hair care needs will all affect how often you wash your beard. Ultimately, wash your beard based on how greasy or dry it feels.
In regards to washing everyday will strip the hair of natural oils. Whilst this used to be true many years ago when shampoos were more basic, today most brands use conditioning polymers (synthetic not natural) which replenish lost moisture. However, that is not to say that some of the shampoos today will not contain harsh chemicals but there are more available that have better ingredients that are not as harmful to the hairs natural nutrients.

It is my personal opinion though you can wash your beard everyday as long as you are
1) Using a 100% Natural Shampoo or Soap
2) Following up your washing (with a not so great shampoo) with an emollient oil or butter that helps keep the moisture from the shower in your beard hairs.
