BEARD OIL, WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR?
Beard oil is the simplest yet most effective beard product. Beard has been in use for centuries, from the Hebrew people (B.C.) all the way to the frontier men that helped map America (A.D.). Ancient civilizations used virgin olive oil, jojoba oil, and even coconut oil to care for their beards.
Love the history lesson, but WTF does beard oil do?!
Simply put, beard oil moisturizes, revitalizes, conditions, and aids in the styling of your beard. See, beard oil is the ultimate beard product because of the fact that its main purpose is to increase the overall health of your beard. A strong beard oil formula will help your beard by aiding in its continual growth. You can expect the following from a good beard oil:
1. Moisturizer – Beard oil serves as a moisturizer by preventing dryness, hence preventing the dread beardruff and beard itch.
2. Revitalizer – Beard oil helps continually revitalize your hair by encouraging better hair strength, keeping the split ends at bay, and working all the way to the root of your hair.
3. Conditions – Beard oil also helps in the conditioning of your beard hair by preventing knots, hardened hairs, and by default, softening.
4. Styling – Beard oil also provides a light hold which increases the moldability of your beard. If you make a habit of continually using beard oil, your hair will soften and become less entangled, therefore aiding in the styling of your beard.
