Keeping our beard in perfect condition needs our time and dedication, in addition to the use of cosmetic products to improve it. In this case we will focus on oil, which is used for beard. Explain what exactly it is, it types and how often to apply it. Read on and your beard will thank you.

What Is Beard Oil?

You may have seen how your barber or hairdresser applies oil to you after fixing your beard or product in the supermarket area where the rest of the beard items are located. However, you may not know very well what it is and you may not use it yet, but surely, after reading it to us, you will consider its use. Beard oil is a composition made from oils that is used to keep the beard hydrated. Usually, the vast majority of oils are formed by the union of natural oils along with essential oils. When referring to natural oils we want to talk about oils from almond or jojoba, while with the essentials we want to refer to those obtained from rosemary, cypress, lavender, cardamom… Take a good look at the ingredients that make up the oil you’re going to use. In addition to the components that may be beneficial, to be natural as those mentioned above, you should avoid others that will not be so beneficial. For example, it is interesting that the oil is free of parabens and silicones in its composition, as they could damage both your hair and your skin. The boom that has caused the number of beards among men to increase has also increased the number of products and companies dedicated to their care. Thanks to this, today we can purchase high quality oils.

Types of Beard Oil

When buying one, not only will you have to look at the components, but many differ by their purpose. You can find oils for greater beard growth, oils to protect from the cold, to give greater freshness… Different products in which characteristics prevail over others to define their main objective. If it’s one of the first ones you buy, anyone you use with good properties will come in handy. When you go to further into this ‘mundillo’ you will decide which one suits you best depending on the characteristics of your beard. Another form of differentiation is the type of skin or hair, as in normal shampoos. You can find oils for dry skin, for sensitive skin, for dry beard… or for all skin types. If you have a characteristic skin or hair type, if it may be a good option to opt for a more specific type of oil.

Every How Often To Apply Beard Oil

There is no set time to use the oil; you will have to see how the beard responds to its continued use. For longer beards and dry hair daily use is recommended so that the hair and skin under it have continuous hydration. After morning washing after waking up it can be a good time to roast your beard and apply the oil. In the most ‘stable’ beards, with skin that is always more hydrated and in which the hairs are not so hard or dry, it can be a couple of days after each application of oil. However, there is no problem in establishing daily use of oil and applying it after beard washing. In fact, it will be favorable for it to be better displayed.
