Lets, be honest… there are tonnes of beard oils out there to choose from. There are a lot of amazing products, so what do you choose?
Firstly, your beard oil should contain some key oils. This will help reduce the itch when growing your beard but also get your beard a healthy injection for maintaining. Most men believe they do not need to moisturise their beard but you should be giving your beard as much attention as the hair on your head. Beard Balms can help when Shaping your beard but a Beard Oil will help yogurt a great shine, moisturise and tend to have a stronger scent.
The oils you should be looking for jojoba oil, grape-seed oil and argan oil. These will hydrate your skin and soften your beard hair. On the point of oils, they will help strengthen, hydrate your skin and beard but less likely to increase growth.
Your beard oil works best right after you have had your morning shower. Or evening shower if you are a night howler. Applying straight after a shower is best because your follicles and pores are open and can therefore easily absorb the oil. If you add just a few drops or maybe a little more if you are rocking a beast of a beard, then it will go a long way. Using a comb on longer beards will help the oil to get through all the hair.
If you think your beard feels dry later in the day, then by all means add a little more. It will control any fly away hairs and help to eliminate any flakes. Choosing a scented oil will have you smelling great all day. There are so many scents available now whether you prefer a manly sandalwood or a fresh citrus scent.
