Are beard cosmetics really necessary? You can of course limit yourself to a simple soap and use hair wax for styling. However, by reaching for special beard care products you can be sure that your beard will be moisturized and nourished.
Beard cosmetics can be divided into primary ones, necessary for every bearded man on a daily basis, and secondary ones, which you can do without. The essentials must include cosmetics to nourish and cleanse the beard, as well as specific products for beard styling.
The beneficial effect of beard oils is due to their rich composition. They contain fatty acids, antioxidants and vitamins A, E and B. Beard oil deeply nourishes the hair follicles, softens the hair and moisturizes the face, increases pigmentation and stimulates cells to renewal.
The cosmetic protects the beard against dryness and harmful effects of the sun, perfectly nourishes and moisturizes thin and stiff hair, and additionally stimulates them to growth. Daily use of the oil makes the beard slightly darker, less faded, and regrowing hairs do not cause discomfort and itching.
Your choice of beard oil should depend on your hair type and facial skin. For dry beards and sensitive skin, olive oil is the best choice. This oil moisturizes the skin and hair and makes them soft and velvety. Irritated facial skin can be relieved by sweet almond oil and jojoba oil. If the beard grows badly or unevenly, castor oil or oil from arugula and burdock seeds will come to the rescue.
Unlike oil, beard balm contains beeswax in addition to natural vegetable oils. Beard care with beard balm mainly helps to tame frizz. With its help you can easily style your beard
The balm has a creamy consistency and it coats every single hair and makes the beard look thicker. If you don’t like shine, opt for a product that provides matte coverage and goes virtually unnoticed. Although the key function of the balm is to fix the shape of the beard, it can also be used by beginners. It will nourish the hair just as well as oil and reduce itchiness.
Does it actually help? Of course, provided you have at least a faint bit of facial hair. Beard growth oil is nothing more than a blend of vegetable oils with an ingredient proven to accelerate hair growth. Some of the most common t include chili pepper extract, burdock or ricin. Hair growth oil improves blood supply to hair follicles and stimulates beard and facial hair growth. Reach for it if you are dreaming of a thick beard or just starting to grow one.
Beard care is all about cleaning your beard on a daily basis. If you are not a fan of oils, balms and other specifics, at least choose a good quality beard soap or shampoo. Both of these cosmetics will not only cleanse your beard but also provide it with necessary nutrients
Regular soap, while it will cleanse your face properly, will dry it out and make your beard stiff as a wire. With carefully selected ingredients, beard products not only cleanse, but also nourish and moisturize the hair.
