Before You Begin
The best time to apply balms and oils is after a hot shower, when your hairs are cleanest and softest; this is when they will most easily absorb the oils.
Dry your beard completely before applying any oil. Water will prevent the oil from being absorbed. For best results, we suggest washing your beard with an all-natural beard soap.
Using your Beard Balm
Beard balm is a all-in-one beard moisturizer, conditioner and styling aid that is helpful for people who want their beards to look thicker. Place a dime sized amount of balm and rub between your palms. Run your fingers through your facial hair, starting from the neck and working up, making sure to rub balm into the skin where your beard grows.
This will help nourish facial hair at the roots. Reverse and run your fingers through your beard in a downward motion from top to bottom, spreading the balm down the hair follicles. Don’t forget your mustache and the hair around your mouth. Brush the balm through your beard with a boars hair beard brush to distribute the balm evenly through your beard. Use the boars hair brush to straighten your beard, or scrunch facial hair in fists to accentuate curl. Use up to three times a day as needed.
Using your Beard Oil
The length and thickness of your beard will determine how much beard oil you need to use. As with most oils, a little will go a long way. The average beard requires 6 drops a day, which means that a one-ounce bottle should last you about 100 uses, or approximately three months.
With the beard oil in your palm, you’ll want to rub it between your hands to even the distribution. The next step is to work the beard oil into your beard and mustache, then down to your skin. Make sure you don’t neglect the mustache area.
