Not everybody likes to keep a beard. For those that cherish keeping beards, keeping it healthy may pose a problem. Keeping beards and not looking after it, over time you may notice the skin beneath looking a bit red, dry and flaky. You may even experience the beard equivalent of dandruff. Just like you can’t leave your head hair without taking care of it and not expecting to get dandruff, also you can’t leave your beards without taking care of it and not expecting some irritations to occur.
That is where the beard oil comes in. Beard oil is one of the essential products any beards man can own in his cosmetic box. Beard oil is a unique combined formula of natural essential and carrier oils, blended together to assist in the growing, taming and beautification of your beards. Not all beard oils are the same.
To maintain a perfect beard, you must use quality beard oil. Some of the things to watch for as ingredients to good beard oil are Almond Oil, Argan Oil, Castor Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Jojoba Oil, Olive Oil, Pine Fragrance Oil, Shea Butter, Tea Tree Oil, Vitamin E Oil, Wheat Germ Oil and some essential oils. These oils have their different functions they perform to give you a good looking beard.
The essential oils commonly used are those deemed to be masculine such as peppercorn, sandalwood, lime, and bay. To use the beard oil, it is advisable to use it after showering or after the cleansing of the beards. This is because the pores and follicles are open and will absorb the oil very well giving it a shining and healthy look. The importance and benefits of using the beard oil cannot be over-emphasized and some of them are as follows
1.) Some beards are long and difficult to comb, the oil soften the texture thus making it manageable.
2.) The pure oils present in the beard oil have anti-inflammatory properties which take care of itching and irritation suffered by many bearded men after shaving or trimming. The oil simply settles into the pores and hair follicles to discard such issues.
3.) The beard can become dry and brittle if you are exposed to cold weather or you live in a cold environment.
The oil also works as a moisturizer. It moisturizes your follicles and the skin beneath.
4.) Beardruff. Just like dandruff. If you have dandruff on your head, you’d treat it with the right conditioner and shampoo. So also this oil can be used to avoid beardruff (beard version of dandruff) by supplying your beard with the required nutrient.
5.) Smelling good. Due to the essential oils used in the oil, it can and will make your beard smell good though this is not the primary reason for the production.
6.) It instantly gives a nice sheen to the hair and after some regular use will give you more fuller and fine look that will make heads turn when you pass by them.
Regular use of beard oil has always been the key to getting the best out of the oil. Put few drops in your hand (bottles often come with droppers); message through to the bottom of your hair and skin and you will get a good result.
