Why and How to Use Beard Balm
What is Beard Balm?
Beard balm is simply a leave-in conditioner that moisturizes, conditions, softens and helps style your beard. Most beard balms contain shea butter for softening and moisturizing, sweet almond oil for conditioning and booting growth, and a protectant (such as beeswax) for sealing in moisture. These ingredients are aimed at facilitating proper beard grooming and when naturally based, should not have negative side effects on your skin or beard. Beard balm is also used for a styling agent since it has the beeswax. The beeswax helps the hold of the beard hair as well as contains all of the fly-away hair. Beard balm is a must for shaping and styling your beard. These ingredients are aimed at facilitating proper beard grooming and when naturally based, should not have negative side effects on your skin or beard.
How to use Beard Balm?
- Using the back of your thumbnail, rake out approximately a pea sized amount of beard balm depending on the thickness and length of your beard. The amount should be about as much to cover your thumbnail and about the thickness of a dime.
- Place the balm in to the palm of your hand and rub your two hands together. Within a few seconds, the heat of your hands will soften the beard balm.
- Start at your sideburn area and work the balm in a downward motion to cover your entire beard, working the last bit in to your mustache. Make sure you use your fingers as a comb as you apply the balm in to your facial hair.
- Once the balm is applied, use your beard comb to work the balm in and shape the beard.
A good beard balm should last most of the day depending on the weather conditions, your activity etc. You may need to apply a small amount later in the day just for that extra shape and hold. Just remember, a little goes a long way and it's not as much for the skin as it is for the beard hair. To much balm can clog your pores.
