Whether you are a new beard owner or a veteran, the concept of oiling your beard may be new…
When we first think of the idea of putting oil on our skin or on our beard one can tend to think of the word “greasy”, which is the last thing we want to be known as. In fact, we shower so that we don’t come off as greasy. So why would be put oil on ourselves?
The first thing to know when it comes to how to oil your beard is what oil to use. There are some oils that will just make you greasy. Many low grade cooking oils for example. Then there are oils that help soften and tone your hair and skin which leave you feeling moisturized, soft, and supple. These are the types of oil we want to apply to our beard.
If you were to make your own beard oil I would say the simplest oil to get would be jojoba oil. Jojoba oil alone is a great oil that is absorbed by the skin and hair and leaves it feeling smooth with a soft, natural shine. Another oil to add to that beard oil is Argan oil. Argan oil has been revered by many to be the ultimate hair tonic oil. Some even go as far as saying that Argan oil can help speed up the hair growth process.
How to care for your beard can get as involved as you may want it get. Professional beard owners…yes, they exist, put great effort into choosing the perfect beard care products.
