Beard oils are designed to mimic the natural oils produced by the skin. They’re grown hugely in popularity over the past several years but date as least as far back as early Native Americans. The quest for a moist, non-itchy, non-beardruff beard is nothing new, after all.
Once your beard really starts to come in, you can shape it. For noobs, it’s important to keep it simple and pick proven styles that suit your face shape until you develop a better eye for beards. (And if you are completely devoid of all artistic talent or discernment, don’t be ashamed to go to a barber at this point—he or she will get you on the right track.)

Applying beard wash and softener is an important part of your beard-grooming regimen, and your beard will thank you for it.

It has milder ingredients that make for a gentler lather than you might expect.

[…] Bessarion later embraced the Catholic faith and in 1455 lost the election to become Pope with eight votes against fifteen from the cardinals. One of the arguments that was used against the election of Bessarion as Pope was that he still had a beard, even though he had converted to Catholicism, and insisted on wearing his Greek habit, which raised doubts on the sincerity of his conversion.
Most guys know all about the awesomeness of cocoa butter. If they’re already proud papas, but for those who don’t, cocoa butter is an excellent base for conditioners and lotions (hence Honest Amish’s choice to use it as an ingredient), because it softens skin (and hair) without making it greasy. It can also help lessen the look of scars and stretch marks, which is why dads know all about it because their wives and girlfriends will have been all about the cocoa butter while pregnant. Shea butter, another ingredient in Honest Amish, has similar effects as well.
First, you can take supplements to make up for any deficiencies in your diet. My regimen usually consists of a multi-vitamin, biotin, and fish oil. Biotin will help your hair and nails grow faster and in other countries it’s called vitamin H for hair. In addition to these basics, you can add zinc, vitamin B (specifically B6), and magnesium.
Start with a fresh shave. Just as you need a clean canvas to start painting, when you decide you’re ready to start growing a beard, you need a clean-shaven face. Start from scratch, trimming any facial hair you do have off, then shaving close to the skin. This will ensure that everything will grow as evenly as possible as you’re starting your new beard.

Our Utility Balm also functions as a leave-in conditioner, similar to beard oil. Since they have the same function, it isn’t necessary to use both. Check out this article to see which one is best for you. A balm is going to be a little bit heavier than a beard oil, but will provide a longer-lasting conditioning effect as a result of its heavier texture. You should apply it once a day, around the same time you’d apply an oil. Right after a shower is always best for applying moisturizing products because your skin and hair are more receptive to nutrients. If you have a special evening planned, you can apply a small amount again just before you go out.
One of the main causes of split ends in your beard is a lack of sebum oil, which is a natural oil produced by glands in your body. These glands can only be so big and produce the same amount every day. Every guy is different, but at some point, your beard will get so big that there won’t enough sebum oil to cover it all. This causes the tips of your beard to miss out on those sweet nutrients. To help combat that, you can use some beard oil to keep the whole thing moisturized and help mimic what your body is already trying to do.
This oil includes argan and jojoba oils, which are essential ingredients for proper beard care, as well as cedarwood essential oil that’s a natural antiseptic and provides a mild, woodsy aroma. A must for dry beards, Cedarwood Beard Oil Conditioner cleanses and moisturizes.

Oil and Balm are very similar in that they both condition and style your beard. The main difference is that beard balm will do a little more to shape and hold your beard. Beard oil is usually enough for short beards, beard balm gives a little more aid to longer, wilder beards.
4. Style – Here is where you will incorporate balm and a comb or brush. First, balm is a lot like beard oil, only with added wax. Use this to style, soften, or add extra hydration to your beard. Then use a comb or natural brush to comb through, shape, and style as desired.
If you’re not sure how evenly your facial hair is growing in, shave your entire face and look for stubble. Does it grow on the tip of your chin as quickly as over your lip? Does it grow under your neck at the same rate as it does on your sideburns? If so, you’re ready for growing a beard.
Hi Ginni. We recommend drinking plenty of water, taking a biotin supplement, washing they spots where your facial hair does not grow with birch tar soap and then using gunbarrel beard oil on those same spots. This will maximize your potential for beard growth in patchy areas.
Beard oils may claim to make your beard grow faster, stronger and thicker, and that may well be an added benefit, but it’s not the whole story. David Pirrotta of David Pirrotta Brand Management (a distributor for grooming brands including Grown Alchemist and Sachajuan) put it this way: “Think of beard oil as cologne, but one that doubles as a hair and skin moisturizer on top of adding shine and body to your beard. Quality beard oils will soften your facial hair, as well as moisturize the skin, reduce itching and create the conditions for healthy growth and smoother beard trimming.”
What you can do, however, is start applying beard oil. Oil makes your beard look and feel healthier (as well as the skin underneath) and is an important weapon in your fight against beard itch. Beard oil is your friend.
If you avoid that temptation to shave it off when the itching becomes unbearable, you will reach a point where the hairs will soften and the itching will subside. Once the facial hair becomes soft, the growth will be less irritating.
