Greasy Beard? Could you be using the wrong oil? All beard oils are the same, right? Well, no, they’re not! Read on…
Some brands of oil can leave your beard feeling like it’s been saturated by a pan of French Fries, while others keep it feeling light and manageable while remaining hydrated and in great condition. Thankfully here are Real Bearded Men we are pleased to say that our oils and balms are not only a great addition to your beard care routine, but completely natural, leaving your facial hair feeling at its best without a hint of heaviness.
What Does Beard Oil Do?
Without the use of oil your skin can become dry and flaky, and your beard brittle and frizzy. The benefits of beard oil are many and as it makes a good all-round grooming accessory for every beard. For new beard growth it will help to get your skin through the early stages of adapting to having hairs on the chin, with its easy and convenient moisturizing properties that quickly absorb into the follicles.
What Does Beard Balm Do?
Beard oil has many benefits for those with longer beards, as the skin under that umbrella of hair still needs to be kept in a good, moisturized condition. However, using beard balm spread evenly throughout the longer hairs will help to soften and style. It consists of a thicker texture with a higher viscosity, and therefore takes longer to absorb. This is great for lengthy beards, offering longer-lasting conditioning and nourishment, and it can be used to help provide shape not only to your beard, but your sideburns and mustache too.
Beard Balm vs Oil
Both Oil and Balm can have a place in your facial hair repertoire and choosing between the two is a matter of preference, as well as depending on what style of beard you wear. They both have benefits and fit different needs for your skin and hair, with oil giving the skin the moisturizer it requires as well as added shine to the hair, while balm provides softness and easy stylability. You don’t have to choose between them if you don’t want to, as using both can provide you with a beard that’s shiny, groomed, and formidable. Just be sure to use either (or both) in moderation or you may get back to the French Fries oil pan look! As with any new hair or skin product, start gradually, and when using both products, use oil before balm so that the balm can lock in the extra moisture.
All of our Beard Oils are made from the finest, safest ingredients such as sweet almond oil (a great source of vitamin E), avocado oil (for helping with absorption while simultaneously stimulating blood flow and unclogging hair follicles), essential oils (providing scent and nutrient-rich conditioning), coconut, castor, and apricot oils, and extra vitamin E for added shine.
