Beard oil is a conditioner used to moisturize and soften beard hair. It’s also effective for moisturizing the skin beneath your beard.
People use beard oil to keep their beards looking fuller, softer, and tamer. It’s also sometimes used to promote beard growth.
Moisturize the skin beneath
Beard oil keeps the skin underneath your beard supple and healthy. It also reduces the occurrence of beard dandruff and itch.
Make your beard look fuller
Beard oil can make a scraggly beard look fuller and lusher. For this reason, some people use beard oil for hair growth.
Make your beard smell good
Beard oil smells good, and can be used instead of cologne. It may attract unwanted advancements! Be careful when used.
How do you use beard oil?
The best time to use beard oil is after showering and shampooing your beard, or after washing your face. Using beard oil when your pores are open will help your skin absorb it efficiently.
You can experiment with using beard oil every day or every other day.
When using beard oil, remember not to overdo the amount you use, or your beard will look greasy instead of groomed. Here are some tips:
- Put three to five drops of beard oil in the palms of your hands and massage it into your entire beard in a downward motion. Do this when your beard is damp, but not drenched.
- Make sure to work it through your entire beard.
- If your beard is long or thick, use a comb to make sure the beard oil gets evenly distributed.
- You may need more beard oil for a long, thick beard.
- Style as needed.
