What is Beard Oil and do I need it?

What is beard oil? Answer: It is oil that is made especially for your beard. It keeps your beard soft, smelling fresh, helps maintain your wild hairs and it is also keeping your facial skin hydrated, helping you to avoid pesky ingrown hairs. If you are thinking you can’t get ingrown hairs, remember the most likely cause of ingrown hair is a curly little hair turning back on itself and grown back into the skin, so oil helps prevent your hair from doing that.

Do you need beard oil?

Do you have a beard? Yes! You absolutely need beard oil.

Do you spend time using hair products, moisturisers and indulge in general personal hygiene? Then why wouldn’t you take the time to love your beard like you love yourself?

You want to have a good looking, nice smelling, soft to the touch beard, don’t you? You don’t want to hear complaints from lovers about a beard rash, do you? Of course you don’t!

The obvious step to take is to invest is some beard oil, and you don’t have to stop at beard oil either, there are other beard products that you can use alongside beard oils.

So, what does it really do for you? It doesn’t just look after your luxurious beard, it’s also feeding the skin you have been hiding underneath all that growth. If the day comes for you to shave off your beard you don’t want to find a dry, scaly mess underneath; your laughable tan line will be enough to deal with. You don’t want flakes of skin in your facial hair either. No one wants a dandruff encrusted beard, and no one wants to see it either.

 When you apply beard oil you can apply it straight to the roots, or you can apply it evenly throughout. It really depends on what you are looking for in beard style- you might want to also use wax. I would suggest that if you do use wax, don’t think of it as a substitute for oil. You are feeding your beard with the oil, you are styling it with the wax.

Hey, don’t forget to wash your beard while you’re in the shower. It doesn’t need to be every day, but it is a habit you should get into if you don’t already do it. There are specific shampoos for beards, and ours is currently in development so you don’t need to look elsewhere for your beard products. Take time to trim your beard, too. It’s all about maintaining that beautiful beard you have so painstakingly groomed from day one.

Having a beard is a lot like having a child, if you aren’t prepared to do the work in looking after it then it just might not be for you. If it’s all you’ve ever wanted, though, take the time to do it right. You won’t be disappointed.
