Beard oil is an easy to use moisturiser and leave in conditioner that comes in a bottle or pump. Quality beard oils will moisturise the skin underneath your beard, soften your facial hair, reduce itching and create the conditions for healthy beard growth.
For best results, use a beard oil with a jojoba or argan base. Jojoba and argan are the best facial hair moisturisers and both have a long shelf life. In addition to being a great moisturiser, beard oil can act as a beard deodorizer and cologne. Look for a beard oil scented with an essential oil blend, not with fragrance oils.
Beard oil is especially helpful during the first six weeks of beard growth when itching can be a problem. If you have a naturally thick, long beard, you may find beard oil easier to work with than beard balm.
Beard oil can be used in conjunction with beard balm or as a stand alone product. For best results wash your beard with an all natural beard wash and apply beard oil when dry. Splash a dime size amount of beard oil in your palm and massage into your skin and beard. Brush the oil through your beard with a boars hair beard brush to help distribute the oil evenly throughout your facial hair. Use up to three times a day as needed. Like beard balm, beard oil does not need to be rinsed out.
