Is it safe to wax your moustache every day?

If you have the moustache wax and the time, you could certainly wax your moustache every day, but should you?  Will waxing your moustache so frequently compromise its health?  If you care for your moustache properly, and use a quality moustache wax like our Primary Moustache Wax or Secondary Moustache Wax, you can absolutely wax your moustache every day.  

Daily waxing of your moustache will help you train your moustache to lay the way you would like, whether this would be to sculpt a handlebar moustache or simply keeping your moustache out of your mouth.  However, you still must take proper care to ensure that your moustache stays healthy.  Our Primary and Secondary waxes contain local beeswax (from Michigan bees), USP lanolin, castor oil, coconut oil, shea butter and Vitamin E; ingredients that are designed to not only allow you to sculpt the style you wish but also keep your facial hair healthy.

 In addition to using a quality moustache wax, be sure to properly care for your moustache.  At the end of the day, take the time to apply one of our traditional beard oils or Beard Dry Oils to your moustache.  This serves a dual purpose: 1) the introduction of the oils will slowly break down the holding properties of the wax, making the wax easier to wash out, and 2) the oils will condition your moustache, keeping it healthy.  

There's no need to wash the wax out immediately, but if you do so, be sure to apply some oil again afterwards as the washing will have taken out the oils as well.  If you do wax frequently, there is nothing wrong with giving your moustache a break for a few days, but be sure to continue to apply the beard oils or Beard Dry Oils during that time to make sure your moustache stays healthy.
