A guide to beard oil

Why use beard oil?

When you start growing a beard it makes quite a difference to your morning bathroom routine and although you won’t be spending time shaving, you will still likely feel the need to give your newly acquired beard some attention.

Facial hair or androgenic hair differs from the hair on your head and has thicker coarser strands which, because of their flatness, will start to curl as your beard becomes longer.  Beneath this testosterone driven beard your facial skin is very soft and sensitive.  At the start of your beard growing journey the ends of the hairs may feel almost sharp from that last cut of the razor. Combined with a desire to keep stroking your newly acquired manliness, this sharpness can cause irritation to the skin beneath the beard.

By introducing good quality beard oil to your daily routine you will experience all the benefits of moisturising, conditioning and strengthening your beard, whilst also taming unruly hairs and soothing your skin beneath.

What is it?

Beard oil is made up of a combination of oils, essential oils and vitamin E, blended to compose scents that smell great while offering various benefits for a healthy beard.

Using beard oil in your daily routine

There are three important parts to caring for an Audacious beard. The first is really hard and might be the most difficult = DON’T KEEP TOUCHING YOUR BEARD. It strips the natural oils off the hairs, irritates the skin beneath and eventually tangles the hairs, leaving them feeling dry and brittle.

Secondly = USE A GOOD BEARD WASH. Many regular shampoos and shower gels are too harsh for facial hair, leaving your beard feeling dry and your skin sensitive. This can become more noticeable the longer you grow your beard.

S BARWe created the Audacious Beard Shampoo bar especially for beards using a combination of high fat content oils such as Avocado to produce a bar that gently cleanses while deeply conditioning your beard. It  leaves the skin feeling amazingly refreshed, hydrated and is suitable for daily use.

Finally, once your beard is towel dry it is time to use your  = BEARD OIL. Place 4-6 drops in the palms and massage into beard and skin, combing through if you desire.

COMBUsing beard balm in your daily routine

The Audacious Beard balm is at its best applied after showering when your beard is towel dry. Scrape the back of your thumb or finger nail  across the balm, similar to using moustache wax but scooping out  a bigger portion. Wipe this into the palm of your other hand and with your index finger and middle finger rub in a circular motion, with vigour. At fist there will be a gritty texture (this is the shea butter) and then after maybe 10 to 15 seconds it will turn clear and smooth. This needs to be done with dry hands as any water will make it difficult to melt. Finally massage into your beard and comb through.
