Beard Conditioner vs Beard Oil - Whats The Difference?

Beard Conditioner vs Beard Oil

Should you be using beard oil or beard conditioner? A very common question among the bearded. The truth is you should probably be using both. Let me explain.

Beard oil and conditioner are pretty similar, but too often they're confused to be one in the same and they aren't. Think of Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro - similar but not the same. 

Beard oil moisturizes and hydrates. If your beard is dry and dull, a good beard oil could be just the pick me up it needs. Beard Conditioner on the other hand more so softens and repairs damaged hairs as well as eliminates a lot of the skin conditions that come along with having a beard - beardruff, itchiness, redness, etc.

I like to look at beard oil as the quick fixer when you've got a hot date and you're running a few minutes behind. If your beard is looking extra luxurious when you pick her up she won't care that you're 10 minutes late. Beard conditioner is more long term. It's like eating healthy - kind of a pain in the ass but the more consistent you are with it the more success you'll have. It's actually a lot easier than eating healthy because you don't have to force feed yourself broccoli and spinach all day. Instead, a little Beard Conditioner 3 to 4 times a week in the shower and your beard will be magnificent. 

So you see, which one you choose to use comes down to what you're looking for. A fully equipped beardsmen should have both nearby. Bearding is your craft, and these are a couple of your most valuable weapons. Pick wisely my friends...

Sincerely Yours,

Beard Fact #148

Beard Fact #148

Yo!

With a great beard comes great responsibility, and for that reason we must continue to spread the knowledge we acquire on this path to glorious beardom. 

Today I'm giving you a piece of wisdom as told to me by the Ghost of Aristotle. I was hiking through the rugged terrain of the Mont Blanc Mountains in Italy when he emerged from the camp fire suddenly. He took a couple marshmallows and gave me this gem before he vanished. Learn it, live it, share it.

Good day beardsmen.

5 Benefits Of Beard Conditioner

5 Benefits Of Beard Conditioner

Most people have heard of conditioner, but what does it really do and why the hell do you need it for your beard? A valid question. Here's the reason - well, here's 5 of them actually:


1. SOFTEN
Nobody likes a super rough beard. In fact, it's the number one complaint from girlfriends of bearded men around the world. Don't be that guy walking around with a Brillo Pad on your face unless your primary objective is to scrub pans or start fires with your beard. 


2. SOOTHE
A huge issue for men with beards is itch and irritation. It's the reason so many guys actually don't want beards. I mean who wants a face that feels like it's been doused in Tabasco Sauce? The right conditioner will alleviate all of that irritation and allow your beard to flourish. 


3. DETANGLE
A beard that is all tangled up is a pain in the ass to say the least. If you can't run a comb smoothly through your beard you have a problem on your hands - or face, actually. A beard like Medusa is never a good look, always remember that. 


4. HYDRATE
Bobby "The Waterboy" Boucher put his life on the line in the name of staying hydrated because he knew its importance. Without hydration beards become dull and dry - two adjectives that should never be put in front of the word beard. 


5. NOURISH
Your beard is a temple, and you must treat it as such. Seriously, it's no different than the food you eat or the gas you put in your car. Nutrients are what allow your beard to be healthy and ensure it reaches its full potential. 


And there you have it - 5 benefits to conditioning. Take heed my friends, for your beard is counting on you. 


Sincerely yours,
Beard Necessities

The Key To Maintaining A Healthy Beard - What Every Beardsmen Needs To Know

5 Benefits to using Organic Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera has been utilized in many ways since the Ancient Egyptians named it "the plant of immortality."

It is virtually unparalleled when it comes to skin and hair; so it's no surprise that it works wonders in the beard department. Here's why:

1) Alleviates Itching and Dryness

Aloe Vera has been shown to soothe all kinds of skin conditions and irritations - from Eczema to Seborrheic dermatitis. These are both common ailments of the beardsman. Fortunately, Aloe Vera can help; it attacks the fungi and bacteria that cause these skin conditions and restores the skins PH balance to its optimum level. 

2. Conditions

Aloe Vera has amazing penetration qualities due to the lingin found in the Aloe Barbadensis Leaf. It also has many similarities to keratin which is the naturally occurring protein found in hair cells. The Aloe Vera is able to penetrate deep into the layers of the skin and nourish from within. 

3) Anti-inflammatory 

Aloe Vera has been utilized to reduce inflammation for thousands of years. The reason for this is two little ingredients called Bradykinase, an analesgic anti-inflammatory enzyme along with salicylic acid which is a natural pain reliever. It's because of these ingredients that Aloe is excellent for any redness, discomfort, or skin inflammation. 

4) Reduces Beard Dandruff

Beards are an ideal environment for fungus to grow and live which is where dandruff comes from. It's no different than the hair on your head when it comes to harboring bacteria, and for that reason many beardsmen suffer from beard dandruff - also known as "beardruff." Aloe Vera has alkalizing properties that eliminates the acidic environment in which this bacteria grows. It is vital that you maintain the proper PH balance underneath your beard and Aloe Vera allows you to do that. 

5) Promotes Beard Growth

Many cases regarding lack of hair growth point us to the same thing: dead skin sells are blocking the passage of nutrients by clogging the hair follicles. Aloe Vera is packed with enzymes and amino acids that not only break down those dead skin cells, but then replenish them. 

To call Aloe Vera a superfood would be an understatement. It's jam packed with vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and amino acids that are vital to a healthy beard. That is why we here at Beard Necessities, have built our conditioner around this ingredient. Give it a try, you will not regret it!

The Secret To Cultivating A Glorious Beard - Shhh!

manuka honey

 

 

Before we get into the benefits of Manuka Honey many of you many be wondering what it is, what makes it different than regular honey and how it can help you achieve the beard you desire.

What is Manuka Honey? Manuka honey comes straight from New Zealand. It is produced by bees that pollinate the Manuka Bush and it is considered one of the most beneficial and unique forms of honey in the world. It contains vitamins A, B, C, D, E and K with amino acids and vital minerals.

What makes it different? It has a tremendously packed nutritional profile. Think of Manuka Honey as the SUPERMAN of all honeys. It has 4x the nutrients and a considerably larger amount of enzymes than normal honey. These qualities create a natural anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory property.

What does this mean for your beard?  Manuka Honey helps to balance the hair’s natural pH levels (between 4.5 - 5.5). Many beard products out there are using LOW quality ingredients and harsh chemicals that alter your hair's natural pH level to 10-11pH. Doing so, not only severely irritates your skin but it strips your hair of the natural oils it needs to stay healthy. Causing dry, coarse and damaged hair.

What does this mean for your skin? Like your hair, your skin has a natural pH level between 4.5 - 5.5. Having products throw off this natural balance can leave your skin weak, inflamed, itchy, dry, flaky and nutrient depleted. Good thing Manuka Honey helps to restore your skins natural pH balance!

How else can it help? Manuka Honey helps kill bacteria with its antibacterial properties. As you can imagine, bacteria can be easily collected and trapped in your beard from everyday sources - eating, touching, cell phones, etc. Manuka Honey fights to eliminate this bacteria leaving you with softer, stronger skin. It also restores moisture to your beard and skin keeping them hydrated and healthy. It truly is a superfood for your beard.

At Beard Necessities, we have integrity when it comes to choosing ingredients. We don't want to damage your beard in any way, we want the opposite - we want you and your glorious beard to flourish. That's why we include this superfood as one of our MAIN ingredients.
