You’ve got a rockin’ beard and you want it to stay that way, don’t you? So what can you do to keep it in tip-top condition? If you aren’t new to the beard game, you know a good care regime is unavoidable. And if you are a first-time grower, then you’ve probably realized a lot more is involved than a daily comb and some trimming. Whatever your experience, one thing’s certain -- the range of products available can be overwhelming. There’s so much to choose from!
Threats to a Smart Beard
Effective grooming products keep your scruff healthy, classy, and buffed up to fight the elements. The harsh sun, the cold winters, and personal habits affect the way your beard looks and feels. And the skin underneath can take a thrashing from neglect too. It makes sense, though, that something so visible and representative of who you are should have regular maintenance.
Consider the threats to an ideal beard when selecting products. Decide what’s necessary, and know what works for your beard, and your skin. Here’s where digging deeper into the ingredients and their benefits helps you make the best choice.
Fight for your Beard with the Perfect Ingredients
Have you noticed the appearance of those dubious white flakes? Dandruff, or beardruff, affects most men and is caused by the weather, stress, and dead skin cells. Were you aware Apricot Kernel oil promotes healthy skin cells because it contains vitamin A? Therefore, skin doesn't dry out and flake as much. And the oil is rich in Vitamin E, which moisturizes hair and skin.
Talking about Vitamin E, here are other great benefits:
- Acts as a cleansing agent
- Reduces premature skin-aging
- Encourages hair growth
- Repairs damaged hair
- Reduces tissue corrosion and premature graying
When it comes to ultimate product ingredients, it would be a disservice not to mention Gold Jojoba oil - the holy grail of beard oils! Often used as a carrier oil, it’s ideal to mix with potent essential oils such as Eucalyptus, Cedarwood, and Peppermint. This oil is an intense moisturizer and hair-strengthener. And it gives your hair an amazing shine!
Remember, you don’t only want healthy hair hanging from your chin. You want the skin underneath to be problem-free too. This prevents irritations, scratching, and the resulting issues. What else keeps your skin strong?
Argan oil - The oil moisturizes and balances the skin and prevents acne outbreaks.
Cedarwood essential oil - Cedarwood is antiseptic, antifungal, and it fights dandruff! All in all, the oil is a sturdy skin shield.
Castor oil - This versatile oil, famous for countless home uses and remedies, is loaded with Omega-6 fatty acids. It has antifungal properties and is effective for treating dry skin because of deep-reaching moisturizing effects.
To keep beardruff at bay and maintain strong skin and hair, the products you chose must contain these vital ingredients. They can't be substandard, though. You’ll be wasting your time and money, and your beard will pay the price. So go for natural and organic. Of course we’d recommend our Beard Elixir. Why wouldn’t we? Not only are the ingredients the finest around, but when talking anti-dandruff and skin-strengthening, it simply has the right combination of oils and vitamins. And we’ve packed so much more into each bottle. Check out the details here.
You Won’t Go Far without Moisturizing
It’s not just dandruff and bad skin you should watch for. Keeping your hair moisturized is crucial as well. Dry hair appears unhealthy and isn’t very comfortable either. It’s prone to split ends - that’s right, even beard hair has split ends. Now you can relate to what your gal is always complaining about! Without enough moisture, hair becomes brittle and breaks easily.
Again, the right product deals with these problems. So let's talk butter -- beard butter! Here’s what a good butter does:
- It moisturizes hair follicles and the skin underneath.
- It conditions and hydrates hair fibers, strengthening them and preventing breakage.
- It fights dandruff.
- It supports hair growth.
Wild Willies’ beard butter does all of that. And as a bonus, the balm provides a slight hold so you can style your beard and keep it neat. The mint scent of the elixir and butter are irresistible too! Good quality, the right ingredients, and an awesome smell! What more could you ask for?
Indeed, caring for your beard is hands-on, but you won’t regret the investment. Stick to a good grooming regime and investigate the products you use. You should trust they will do the job without adverse effects when you apply them to your hair and skin.So always opt for the best ingredients. Choose natural and organic products over those with chemicals, preservatives, artificial fragrances, and colorants. Your beard and skin will thank you, and the results will be spectacular.
