Maintaining your beard: An Art and a Science

We are approaching the holidays and resolutions! So, do we wish to have a thicker, more robust beard that no longer itch? We tell you everything!

Maintaining a healthy, stylish beard requires much more than just growing facial hair. This requires a regular maintenance routine, using suitable products known for their benefits for the beard.

Essential Oils and Their Impact on Beard

There are several essential and vegetable oils beneficial for beard care. Here are some of the most important:

  1. Jojoba Oil: This oil is similar to the sebum naturally produced by human skin. It is easily absorbed by hair follicles, deeply moisturizes the skin and softens the beard.
  1. Argan Oil: Known for its nourishing properties, it helps reduce frizz, soften beard hair and hydrate the skin underneath.
  1. Coconut Oil : Rich in fatty acids, it easily penetrates the hair follicles, providing hydration and shine to the beard.
  1. Black seed oil : All bearded men encounter at one time or another problems with skin that is tight, itchy, or even peeling, revealing small, unsexy dandruff... Black seed oil is ideal, also known as Named black cumin, it has been valued for centuries for its anti-inflammatory and nourishing healing properties. Rich in antioxidants, it promotes hair growth and helps prevent skin irritation under the beard. The fatty acids present in this oil help moisturize and soften the hairs, giving the beard a groomed and healthy appearance.
  1. Hemp oil:

Hemp oil is another popular option for beard care. This lightweight oil is rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which easily penetrate the skin and hair follicles. It deeply nourishes, helps prevent flaking of the skin under the beard and helps strengthen the hairs, making them less prone to breakage.

Beard Maintenance Routine

  1. Cleaning and Hygiene

Wash the beard regularly with a mild beard-specific shampoo to remove impurities while preserving natural oils.

  1. Hydration with Oils

Apply a few drops of black seed oil or hemp oil to the beard and the skin underneath. Massage gently for better absorption.

  1. Brushing and Styling

Use a natural bristle brush to distribute the oil evenly and detangle the hairs. Then, style the beard according to your preferences.

Scientific Evidence

Scientific studies have demonstrated the benefits of natural oils for hair and skin care. For example, a study published in the Journal of Cosmetic Science highlighted the beneficial effects of essential fatty acids found in hemp oil for skin health.

In short, using natural oils can greatly improve the appearance and health of the beard. However, it is essential to choose quality products and adapt your routine according to the individual needs of the beard.
