How to use Beard Oil & Beard Balm in a beard care routine
Here’s a scary thought: after weeks of battling the razor and growing your beard, you realize that it doesn’t really look all that great — plus it itches, like, really itches.
It itches so bad that you’ve considered shaving it all off, and starting anew, but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
Our astonishingly superior beard products were developed to help make your beard look and feel its best, and to help you get started, we’ve put together this quick little guide on how to use and apply beard balm and beard oil.
HOW MUCH DO I USE?
There are no set rules on this, as it depends on your beards length, size and thickness. Every beard is different, like a beautiful and unique snowflake.
If it is your first time, a good rule of thumb would be 3 drops of Beard Oil placed into your palm, and a finger-tip sized dollop for Beard Balm.
Your beard might need more, but be smarter than your 13 year old self and start small. It wasn’t cool back then to swim your head hair in Pomade, and nor will your beard thank you if it looks like a greased out mess.
HOW TO APPLY BEARD OIL
It’s not rocket science, but we do have a few hacks for ‘expert level’ application. Beards are generally thicker and bushier than the hair on your head, and we want to make sure every follicle gets the love it needs.
We’re going to assume you’ve showered and applied a Beard and Face Wash prior to application. If this isn’t the case, do everyone a favor and turn on the shower taps.
APPLYING BEARD OIL
Using the dropper on our Beard Oil, pour a few drops into your palm and rub your hands together, paying particular attention to getting the good stuff between your fingertips. Apply in an even manner to your beard, working in with care and massaging into every follicle. For a bonus point, we recommend using a Beard Brush to help with spreading the oil evenly and exfoliating your skin at the same time – win, win!
HOW TO APPLY BEARD BALM
Rub finger on balm in a circular motion until you have a dollop on your fingertip. Work between palm and fingers until the product feels warm and supple. Apply to beard, styling your beard into its desired shape. An expert tip is to use a Beard Comb to aid you in making sure your beard looks on point.
CAN I USE BEARD OIL & BEARD BALM TOGETHER?
We wouldn’t recommend it. The shea butter from the beard balm and the beard oil, do not mix well together and your beard could look extremely greasy.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I USE BEARD OIL & BEARD BALM
This depends on your lifestyle, but we recommend using a Beard Oil once a day to keep your beard healthy and vibrant. If you’re not using regularly, beards can become dry and this will result in beard itch and soreness – not cool.
