Beard Oil helps to soften and condition hair as well as add a healthy shine. Beard hair will naturally pull oil away from the face which can cause dryness and dreaded “beard-druff ” , by using beard oil one can prevent this process, leaving their skin and beard hair moisturized. While Beard Balm has similar properties to Beard Oil but is in a solid form. Because of this you can use it to style and shape a beard. Beard Balm can be used in conjunction with Beard oil and locks oil in nicely creating a barrier between it and the air. An added benefit of balm is the prevention of “frost beard” in the winter months.
