WHAT ARE BEARD BALMS AND WHAT ARE THEY USED FOR?

WHAT ARE BEARD BALMS AND WHAT ARE THEY USED FOR?   

Beard balm is not the same as Beard oil

 Beard balm is a leave-in moisturiser with many of the same key ingredients as beard oil, but the key difference here is that it’s simultaneously used as a styling product. Beard balm often includes beeswax and types of butter such as shea or cocoa that assist styling. It typically has a waxy and malleable consistency but does come in both solid and cream forms.

The key benefits of using beard balm are as follows:

  • Moisturises your beard hair and skin.
  • Prevents dandruff.
  • Makes your beard look thicker.
  • Styles, shapes your beard and tames flyaway hairs.


Beard balm is best for men with long beards that need extra taming. It’s also great for guys experiencing patchy or brittle beards, who want to achieve a fuller, thicker look.

SHOULD BEARD OIL AND BEARD BALM BE USED TOGETHER?

In short, yes, they can be, but it depends on your beard type. Beard oil and beard balm are two of the best beard care products that you can use, and when teamed together, create an unstoppable force of luscious bearded glory. 

However, if you have a short beard, you can probably get away with only using beard oil. A short beard won’t be long enough to need styling yet, and the light oils will provide all of the essential moisture that it needs to encourage healthy growth.

If you have a long beard, both oil and balm should be part of your beard care routine. It’s a good idea to get into the habit of using a beard oil every day, and a beard balm once or twice a week, depending on your styling needs. For example, you probably don’t need to style your beard if you’re hanging around at home all day, but will still want to provide it with those vitamin-giving oils to keep it moisturised and healthy. Use beard balm when you’re taming your beard to go out, or once or twice a week to encourage a fuller, thicker beard.


HOW TO APPLY BEARD BALM.

Beard balm is best applied once you washed and dried your beard You can apply beard balm in three easy steps.

Step 1: Scoop out a pea-sized amount of beard balm from the tin (or squeeze the same amount out of the tube for cream balms) and rub the wax into your hands until it’s fully melted. The amount that you will need to use will depend upon the length and thickness of your beard, so it might take a little bit of trial and error to get the perfect quantity. Just remember that less is more with beard balm - don’t go scooping out teaspoons of it!


Step 2: Work the product through your beard with your fingers, from the roots of your beard hair to the ends. Don’t forget to massage it into the skin underneath your beard too, as this will prevent dry skin and dandruff.


Step 3: If you wish to distribute the balm more evenly through your beard hair, try brushing it through with a quality beard brush. This will also help you shape and detangle your beard. Alternatively, you can scrunch it with your fists to accentuate the curl.

Therefore, we believe implementing beard balms are a key to achieving the look and feel you desire!
