How To Use Beard Oil - The Simple Way

If you have a beard or are trying to grow one chances are you've heard of beard oil. It seems to be everywhere these days. However as popular as it's become a lot of beardsmen, aspiring and accomplished, actually don't know how to use it. If you fall into this category don't feel bad about it; you've come to the right place. The truth of the matter is there are a ton of companies selling it and yet very few take the time to explain how to apply it properly. So here's how you do it:

1. The best time to apply beard oil is after a hot shower. Of course you can use it any time, but after a hot shower your pores are more open and ready to absorb nutrients and minerals. (Note: Make sure you towel dry your beard before using. If your beard is too wet it will act as a repellent because water and oil don't mix.)

2. Drop a dime sized amount of beard oil into your palm and rub your hands together focusing on the finger tips - not too much, but just enough to spread the oil around. The amount used varies depending on beard size and personal preference. Start with less because you can always add more, and a little goes a long way. 

3. After the oil is dispersed a bit, use your finger tips and massage the skin beneath your beard. A common mistake is neglecting the skin and just focusing on the beard itself. The skin is where the majority of nutrients are absorbed and is the foundation you build on. Look at it this way: If your beard were a plant, your skin would be the soil.

4. Now rub the remaining oil into the beard directly - starting at the base and moving outward to the end of your beard. Make sure you spread it evenly throughout. Spend a little more time on the trouble areas if any exist.

5. Once your beard has been thoroughly oiled you are done and can rinse your hands. You're good to go!

This whole process is super quick and doesn't need to take more than 60 seconds. These are five fast and easy steps to ensure you're getting everything possible from your beard oil. Good luck, gentlemen; for greatness awaits you.

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,
