If you have trouble with shaping your beard and maintaining the shape while keeping it moisturized and hydrated, then jojoba oil for beard is for you.
What is Jojoba Oil?
Jojoba oil is actually not an oil at all. It is a liquid wax ester. The traditionally use comes from the Native American culture who drew the oil from jojoba seeds as a wound treatment.
The Jojoba Plant
Jojoba has no triglycerides. This prevents the oil from going bad and starting to give off an odor. Jojoba will not cause allergies or blockage of the pores. Natural Jojoba oil that is unrefined is gold in color. The Jojoba you find in stores has no color and no scent. When Jojoba is refined it is stripped of its tocopherols which is where the moisturizing power of Vitamin E is contained. If you want to use Jojoba oil you should look for unrefined oil. Remember unrefined oil is gold in color and it will have an aroma.
Unrefined Jojoba OIl, in it’s all-natural state, works to prevent breakage of facial hair at the root and hydrate the skin and hair of the black man’s divine beard. You can use Jojoba oil as a part of your daily beard care routine because it is non-toxic and non-allergenic therefore it will not build up on the facial hair. Instead, your beard will absorb all the hydration Jojoba oil has to offer. If Jojoba oil is paired with pure argan oil you will find that your skin feels soft to the touch beneath your beard as the dead skin cells are eliminated. Your beard will be plush, easy to tame, and healthy.
How to Use Jojoba Oil
Jojoba oil for beard is ideal to be used as a pre-shave oil. Put a few dabs in your hand and rub them together then rub it into your skin before you start your lathering stage. After you have finished shaving, you can apply Jojoba oil as an aftershave. Jojoba’s biggest benefit, though, is when it is used as a beard oil.
As a general rule, you should not use products that come from a grocery store or a pharmacy. These are products that are produced on a mass-market basis and may contain some good elements, but you need to read the entire label. These products are notorious for containing synthetic ingredients that will seem to work after the first few uses, but with ongoing usage, they will actually harm your skin and slow the growth of your beard.
Wash and Rinse
Once you have washed and rinsed your beard, you should use a towel to pat it dry. Do not scrub it. This will result in breakage and it will make it difficult to tame. Put your Jojoba oil in your hands and rub them together and through your beard. You should run your fingers up through your beard from the root and be sure the oil is being evenly dispersed throughout all of your facial hair. You should use a beard brush to brush it through and be sure that the oil is reaching your face as well.
Remember to read your labels, follow the steps, and you will be well on your way to sportin’ a healthy beard, fellow beardsman!
