You’ve all probably come across beard oil at some point and are more than aware of its basic functions. For those of you who don’t know, it is designed to soften, condition and hydrate your facial hair.
But, that’s not all it can do.
Beard oil can be used for a number of different things. For many it is an essential item in their grooming regime, yet they are unaware of all of its capabilities.
So what else can beard oil do or can’t do then? To answer all your burning questions, we’ve outlined 7 other things that you may not know about beard oil.
1) CAN BEARD OIL BE USED ON HAIR?
The simple answer is yes. Beard oil fortunately can be used on hair.
Even though the consistency of it may seem thicker than hair oil, it can work just as great. Remember that Mo Bros beard oil is infused with 98% natural oils, therefore there are no problems in applying it on your scalp (which is made up of tough skin).
Ingredients such as Jojoba oil, contains vitamins and minerals that work well to nourish the hair, making it look sleek and softer as well as moisturising the skin underneath.
But as a disclaimer, beard oil used on the hair will not make your hair grow.
2) CAN BEARD OIL HELP GROW MY BEARD?
Let’s be real, nothing great comes easy. Unfortunately it’s very unlikely that you’ll grow the perfect beard overnight.
But don’t be disheartened just yet. Beard oil can aid the process of growth, as it is packed with ingredients such as argon and jojoba oil which again, hydrates and moisturises the skin. It’s purpose is to remove dead skin cells, strengthening the facial hair and in return can promote hair growth.
But remember, patience is key. With proper care and the right products, it is possible to achieve your desired beard length - find out more here.
3) CAN BEARD OIL CAUSE DANDRUFF?
Beard Oil is a product that PREVENTS dandruff. One of the main causes of dandruff is dry skin which eventually results in an itchy beard.
BUT, oil works to prevent the facial hair from drying out, causing it to itch less and creates less dandruff. Read more on how to avoid beard dandruff here.
4) CAN BEARD OIL BE USED ON SENSITIVE SKIN?
Effectively, beard oils that contain fragrances can cause an issue if you do have sensitive skin, but those that use natural ingredients such as sweet almond oil can work well.
Sweet almond oil is full of vitamins and minerals, as well as being hypoallergenic and is known to be gentle on sensitive skin.
5) CAN BEARD OIL FIX A PATCHY BEARD?
As you may already know, growing a beard can come with its downfalls e.g. becoming patchy.
To fix this, the straight forward answer is to just let it grow. But it’s important to also take good care of your beard in the process, by using products such as beard oil. As mentioned above, it can promote hair growth and thus, allowing the hair to look thick and much more fuller.
6) CAN BEARD OIL CAUSE ACNE?
The contents of beard oil plays a huge part in whether it can cause acne. A key ingredient is argon oil, which contains anti inflammatory properties. Argon oil is also non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores), so it is safe for acne prone skin!
