What Do Beard Oils Do?
To begin with, beard oil is a conditioner. We use it to moisturize and soften our beard hair. It’salso very effective for moisturizing the skin beneath your beard. This means that you’ll suffer from beard itch less.
Secondly, as a black man, we need to use beard oil to keep your beards looking fuller, feeling softer, and to help control those fly-away hairs. It’s also sometimes used to promote (not guarantee) beard growth.
Goodbye Wild Man Look
The hairs in our beard are usually rougher in texture than the hair on our head. In addition to that, as black men, our beard hair seems to be the roughest, and has a tendency to be coarse and kinky.
This is where beard oil seems to be magical. It softens and adds shine to beard hair giving it a healthier appearance and feel. Also, it tames scraggly hairs so that your entire beard looks neater, more styled, and well groomed.
Moisturize The Skin Beneath
A premium quality beard oil moisturizes the skin beneath your beard. As a result, this keeps the skin underneath healthy. It also reduces the occurrence of beard dandruff and itch.
Beard oil is most effective when used as a moisturizer for the skin underneath your beard. You should start seeing an improvement in the condition and appearance of your skin and beard as soon as you start using beard oil.
I want to make something clear here.
Beard growth is based on several factors such as health, your diet, age and genetics.
Beard oil will NOT magically fix all those factors. It will however, keep your skin healthy so that if you address the other factors you have the best chances of growing a fuller and thicker beard faster.

Make Your Beard Smell Good
Ok fellas, it’s not the 70’s anymore and not all of us want to smell like we slept in the woods. Beard oil smells good, and can be used instead of cologne.
We now have more choices. However, I can’t tell you which scents work best for you. Therefore, this is something you will have to discover for yourself through trial and error.
