When Should You Start Using Beard Oil?

 

Beard oil manufacturers will claim that you can start using your beard oil as soon as you have a bit a stubble. While this technically might be true, it is a bit of overkill, and the reason why it is a bit overkill is because At the root of every follicle you have these tiny little glands called sebaceous glands.

Sebaceous glands are responsible for giving your follicles the essential moisture it needs in order for your hair to look healthy. You have these glands all over your body with the exception of your palms, soles of your feet. However, the glands are a bit larger for your face and hair follicles.

Now interesting fact is that These sebaceous glands produce sebum oil which is absolutely key to understand why beard oil exists in the first place.Now as your beard follicle gets longer, it will ultimately begin to suck up all of the sebum oil and will be effectively looking for more, this is when the dreaded itch occurs and with the dry skin underneath your beard, eventually flaking will start to occur.

But it gets worse

Not only will you have itchy and flaky facial situation but you will also have a beard that is feeling a bit rigid, sharp, crunchy.This is because the sebum oil that is responsible for making sure that your beard stays well moisturized is not making it to the tips, and when it doesn’t, your beard just simply doesn’t feel that great.

 

So How Does This All Relate To Beard Oil?

 

where the production of sebum oil from your sebaceous glands can’t keep up with your epic beard is when you need to introduce an all natural solution,Brother’s Beard oil.

 

Additional Information About Beard Oil

 

Beard oil contains just simply two core ingredients – carrier and essential oils.the carrier oils make up about 95% of any beard oil and will be responsible for all the moisture that your beard needs.

( Always make sure you do a patch test – typically behind your ear or in the bend of your elbow, to make sure you don’t have any sensitivities to the oils. )

While carrier oils are well, boring. Their scents are muted and only serve the purpose of hydrating that skin. Essential oils on the other hand what make the beard oils come to life with interesting smells to excite not only yourself but the people around that awesome mane.

 

How to use Brother’s Beard Oil

 

Now before You Begin

The best time to apply is after a hot shower, when your hairs are cleanest and softest, this is when they will most easily absorb the oils. Dry your beard completely before applying any oil. Water will prevent the oil from being absorbed.

 

Beard Oil Application

 

Step 1:
Put 2-3 drops of oil in your palms. (This will go a long way, and you can apply more later if needed.)
Step 2:
Spread it evenly in your palms and fingers.
Once the oil is distributed, brush your palms along the sides of your beard.Do the same down the front.
Then bring both hands up through the bottom of your beard.
Step 3:
Use your finger tips to coat the hairs on your mustache.
Step 4:
Use a comb to evenly distribute the oil while setting the hairs back in place.
Step 5:
Repeat this process once daily to keep your beard soft and conditioned.

( Frequency of application varies based on season, climate, and numerous other factors. Start with an every-other-day application and adjust as you deem necessary. )

 

 

 

Brother’s Beard Balm Guide

 

To understand what a beard balm is, its important to first understand the ingredients that are within the actual balm itself. While every balm is unique, they typically will always have four distinct ingredient types:

Carrier oils
Essential oils
Spreadability agent
Beeswax

we have touched on carrier oils and essential oils in the beard oil chapter, and so we will touch on spreadability agents and beeswax.
In order to give a beard balm its “balmy” properties, there is usually a spreadability agent added in of some sorts, the most common is going to be a shea or cocoa butter. These butters are usually found in all sorts of lotions and do a terrific job at converting a beard balm from a waxy block into something that is a bit more malleable. In addition, it will also add a terrific layer of moisture to the carrier oils that are already contained within the product.

An additional product that gives beard balm its distinct property is the inclusion of beeswax. Beeswax will help to provide a very slight hold for your beard. Beeswax does also have some great properties for your skin as well. Most prominently it will help to act as a protectant by blocking out natural pollutants that you may encounter through out the course of any given day.
Of all the ingredients within a beard balm, the beeswax acts more so as a binding agent when compared to all the other ingredients.

 

How To Use Brother’s Beard Balm

 

Step 1:
Take a shower. Clean your beard. While it isn’t recommended that you wash your beard with shampoo every single day, you should still be rinsing your beard with warm water every morning and every night. ( This gives you a clean canvas to work with and ensures you’re not stacking up your beard with too many oils, while still retaining the skin’s natural moisture. ) It’s important to dry your beard thoroughly before applying beard balm so that the hair and skin can absorb it properly.

NB: Don’t use hair shampoo on your beard – they’re two very different types of hair. While you may shampoo your hair every day, your beard is much more prone to drying out and should only be washed once or twice a week.

Step 2:
Rub a small amount of balm into your hands.( A little goes a long way, so don’t overdo it and risk wasting product ) Use the back of your nail to scrape up a dime-sized amount of balm and rub it between your hands until you feel it melt and soften. ( Don’t rub the balm between your fingers – it’ll make washing the oil off of your hands much more difficult when you’re done.)
Step 3:
Work the balm into your beard. Work the balm into your beard starting at your neck, moving your hands upwards toward your chin. Scrape up some more balm if parts of your beard are still dry.
Step 4:
Once the bottom portion of your beard is thoroughly moisturized, work the balm into your sideburns and work your way down. Don’t just apply the balm to the surface of your beard ( massage it into your skin. A beard is only as healthy as the skin it grows from. ) Plus, massaging your skin can help stimulate your hair follicles, potentially helping your beard grow faster.
Step 5:
Style your beard with a comb or brush. Use your desired comb or brush to style your beard to your liking. ( While a balm won’t give you an extra strong hold like a gel or pomade would, it does offer more control than an oil or just plain water.)
Step 6:
Rinse and repeat (literally). Before you go to bed at night, rinse out the oil in your beard with warm water. When you wake up, do the whole thing over again. ( Unlike shampoo, beard balm can and should be applied every

 

 

 

Beard Oil Vs Beard Balm

 

Oils and balms are essentially the same, except balms add wax and butter to the mix. As far as differences go, oil doesn’t offer the same hold as balm.
But if you love beard oils, you don’t have to give them up to start using a balm – you can use both at the same time. If you do, apply the oil before the balm.
