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...

New Product Coming Soon!

New Product Coming Soon!

A few years ago my brother and I were both growing beards - 'twas a glorious time. Now, anyone who has grown a beard knows that it can be a real pain in the ass. Itching, flaking, and a plethora of other skin conditions can haunt even the best of men. 

That's exactly what happened to me. Apparently my Irish skin is a bit sensitive, and so I began looking for products that could assist me on this beard journey. I found a ton of beard oils, but that's about it. I couldn't find any beard conditioner - not one. I tried a bunch of the oils, but none seemed to do the trick. 

After several months of scouring the earth for anything that could help I had a vision. An ancient medicine man emerged from the fog while I walked my dogs on that fateful morning. "If you build it they will come," he said. I knew then what I needed to do - make my own beard products! 

We decided to start with a conditioner being that there was such a void in that area, and so began a new journey - researching ingredients, talking to cosmetic biologists, testing out different formulas, etc. We wanted to start with our Grizzly Beard Conditioner and just focus on that as opposed to immediately releasing a bunch of products. For us, it wasn't and isn't about the money - sure money is good, but our primary concern from the very beginning was to give people the best product possible. Customer satisfaction above all else. 

Fast forward to present day, we are working on releasing our second product which is an unscented beard oil. That will be coming very soon so stay tuned. In the meantime make sure you grab a bottle of Grizzly Beard Conditioner: 8 ounces of the best shit on earth!

Thank you for your continued support. Beard Necessities is family owned and operated and everyone who rocks with us is a part of that family as well. We appreciate you more than you know.

How To Grow A Beard In 7 Simple Steps

How To Grow A Beard In 7 Simple Steps

If you've had a beard for while it may seem like this goes without saying, but if you're new to the beard journey there's a pretty simple question that a lot of people have and that is: How do I grow one?

The easy answer is to stop shaving, but there is a little more to it than that. So here's what you must do:

STEP 1. You must envision greatness. You have to see greatness before you can become it. Michael Jordan saw the ball go through the net before he ever shot it. Treat your beard like a game winner. 

STEP 2. You must have the proper tools. If you are to grow a beard it must become your craft - the proper weaponry is vital. 

STEP 3. Fight through the struggle. This is where most people fall down. Do not let the fact that your beard itches or is growing in patchy deter you. Persist my friend; for on the other side of that struggle is glory. 

STEP 4. Time to pick a shape. Be swift and precise - or better yet go to a barber who specializes in beards and tell him how you want your beard to look.

STEP 5. Maintenance. One does not simply grow a beard and then abandon it - he must maintain it. Using the proper products, keeping it neat, etc. Take care of your beard, and your beard will take care of you. 

STEP 6. Be patient and do a lot of manly shit. Chop wood, break bricks with your bare hands, climb mountains - do it all. Beardliness is next to manliness. 

STEP 7. Continue! Growing a beard is an ongoing process. Make sure you enjoy it, and remember you are the master of your fate. Good luck, beardsmen. 

Sincerely yours,
Beard Necessities

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!
