Beard balm can do wonders in terms of volume and hold

Beard Balm

One of the most overlooked topics by people trying to grow a beard is the: head hair vs beard hair topic. A lot of people blindly walk into the beard world without understanding that there exists a distinction in hair. By distinction I mean, texture and to a larger extent color. Astonishing as it may sound, this difference occurs due to a number of different factors, one of them being: longevity of the growing phases. There are three phases namely:

  • Active growth phase

Facial hairs have a much shorter growing phase as opposed to the hair that grows in your head. Interestingly enough, the skin under your beard is also different from the skin on your head i.e. scalp. However, that’s a story for another day. So why is it important for you to understand the variance between your beard hair and head hair? The answer is very simple: care and maintenance.

If you decide to grow a beard, then you’ll need to use products specifically designed for your beard. Using regular soap, shampoo or even hair conditioner could be a bit harsh not only to your beard, but also to the skin beneath your beard. This could cause a lot of damage which would at times push you to a point where you contemplate shaving off your beard.

That’s why we give you these tips and bring you premium beard care products. Today, we are going to feature our beard balm and also show you some of the importance of using it.

What is beard balm?
Beard balm is a soft product that melts when you rub it in your hands. It can be compared to a leave-in conditioner in hair care. Most beard balms contain some of the following ingredients: Shea butter, bee wax, carnauba wax, essential oils, solid fat and carrier oils.

Benefits of beard balm

  • Nourishes your beard
    Given that beard balm contains a lot of natural and healthy ingredients as mentioned above, it’s only right that its first benefit be nourishment. Some of the components contained in the various oils, wax and fats include: amino acids, vitamins, enzymes and minerals just to name a few. These help nutrify your beard keeping it looking healthy.

  • Softens and helps in styling
    Another great benefit of beard balm is that it helps soften your beard. You don’t want to run a comb or a brush through your beard when it is dry. This is because, chances are parts of your beard will be tangled or matted. So in order to avoid damages such as breakage and split ends when combing, use beard balm before styling.
