Curly Beard: Don’t Straighten! Do This Instead

Share With Friends and Family

Want to straighten your curly beard? Consider this blog post first.

A few months ago, I was scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed when I jumped into a video posted on a Facebook group about curly hair by a man named Aku Raita, who was showing off his curly beard that he pampered so much.

The video caption reads:

“I found out last summer that my beard is curly. It took one year to find out the best way to bring it out! Find this method like 4weeks ago. So proud of my beard.”

Want to see the video? Here it is:

It’s just an 11-second video clip that is worth sharing. If you’re interested in replicating that beard style with a single curly beard routine, you may want to keep reading.

Before we discuss his curly beards, here’s an explainer of the reasons why some women grow beards.

Products Used For The Curly Beards

Achieving such adorable curly beards surely involves using a few products on your beards, and Aku Raita was kind enough to share the products he used. Here’s a comprehensive list of the products he used for his curly beards.

1. Organic Shea butter (Unrefined & Unbleached)


The unrefined and unbleached Shea butter(#ad) with the mixture of coconut oil helps make hair soft.

Aside from that, Shea butter can also be used for many other non-hair purposes, such as treatments for skin irritation like an allergic reaction, cough, and catarrh (that’s a home remedy).

2. FoodIn Coconut Oil

Neitsytkookosöljy cold-pressed coconut oil is only available in Finland for now, but alternatively, Viva Naturals Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil(#ad) is a perfect replacement for it. Coconut oil is famous for healing damaged hair and hydrating dry hair, strengthening your cuticles.

3. Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Creme(#ad)


As you can probably already tell, this hair cream is a unique product with a range of advertised benefits. Interestingly, it wasn’t intended to be a hair cream, rather, it’s a foot cream! In any case, it’s part of our model’s beard care routine, so we’ll add it.

If you’re curious about the contents of this hair cream, here’s a comprehensive list of its ingredients.

Ingredients: glycerin, Olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, Avena Sativa (oat) kernel flour, lanolin, fragrance, Cocos Nucifera (coconut) oil, quillaja Saponaria (quillaja) bark extract, Avena sativa (oat) kernel oil, Tocopherolrosmarinus Officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract, glycine soja (soybean) oil, canola oil, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, coumarin, limonene, linalool.

Curly Beard Routine (Step-By-Step Guides)

While describing his curly beard routine, Aku Raita wrote:

Once every two months, I wash my beard with beep cleansing body shower gel and only once or twice a month with conditioner. Add just moist daily.

  • I rinse my beard daily with water.
  • Add coconut oil, some butter, and foot cream every morning and night.
  • After a shower, I add some homemade linseed gel and let it air dry.

That’s all.

How To Make Homemade Linseed Gel

Aku’s guide is relatively easy to follow until you get to the point where you have to add some homemade linseed gel. Adding the gel isn’t the confusing part here, but how to make homemade linseed gel. To help you out, here’s how to make homemade linseed gel:

  • Mix 2DL/ 2ML of water with a 2table spoon of linseeds.
  • Boil the solution for 10 minutes or more and strain the seeds off.
  • The liquid remains after boiling is your homemade linseed gel. You can store the linseed gel in the fridge for four to five days.

You can buy your pack of linseed here on amazon(#ad)

Linseed is the small, reddish-brown, or golden-yellow seed of the common flax plant, Linum Usitatissimum, the same plant used to grow the fiber from which true linen has been made for thousands of years.

It’s also the same as flaxseed.

Is Curly Beard Attractive?

Most people looking to rock a curly beard almost always ask this question, and it’s fair; you don’t see someone with a curly beard every other day.

Like many other similar questions, the answer is: it depends. It depends on the beholder, how well-maintained your curls are, and the standards of beauty in your location.

While I’m not a big fan of curly beards, Aku Raita’s unique curls completely won me over, and I see myself recreating something like that. On the other hand, I’d probably not be making this post if the beard itself was bushy and completely unattractive, so again, it depends on how well you’re maintaining your curly beard.

If you’re following Aku’s routine religiously without compromising on other aspects of your appearance, your curly beards should only add to your allure.

Final Thoughts

Before I conclude, I am pleased to say that all credit goes to Aku Raita, who inspired me to write this blog post. You can subscribe to his YouTube channel or follow him on Instagram @rollesrole.

Raita’s curly beard caring technique is something unique that is very rare. All men want to straighten their beard and zoom off without thinking if there’s any available tweak.

It’s time to build the Greek philosopher’s beard gang.
