The Mane Attraction: How to Choose the Best Beard Oil for the Bearded Professional

Updated: Mar 15, 2023

Beards are in folks. Ain't no two ways about it! And for the modern bearded professional, there's no better way to keep your facial hair looking sharp than using beard oil. But with so many options, knowing which one to choose can take time and effort. Fear not, my unshaven brethren. I'm here to give you some considerations on choosing the best beard oil for your needs.

First things first, let's talk about why you should be using beard oil in the first place. Sure, it'll keep your beard looking and smelling great, but it's also essential for the health of your hair and skin. Despite the product name, beard oil is made using all the carrier oils the women in your life use to keep their skin silky smooth, and beautiful. Beard oil moisturizes the skin underneath your beard, which helps to prevent itchiness, flakiness, and dandruff. It also helps to keep your beard hair soft and shiny and can even help to promote hair growth.

So, what should you look for when choosing a beard oil? Let's start with the ingredients. Ideally, you want a beard oil that contains all-natural ingredients, as these are less likely to cause irritation or allergic reactions. Some of the best carrier oils to look for as ingredients include jojoba, argan, and almond, which are great for moisturizing and conditioning hair and skin.

You'll also want to consider the scent profile of the beard oil. While this is largely a matter of personal preference, it's worth noting that some scents are better suited to certain occasions. For example, if you work in a formal setting, you may opt for a more subtle scent, whereas if you're out on the town with the guys, you can go for something a little bolder. With this in mind, Esthete Beard Co. offers lifestyle variety through our Wellness, Urbane, and Timeless blends. Life is a journey, not a destination.

Another factor to consider is the thickness of the oil. Some beard oils are thicker and more viscous, while others are lighter and more easily absorbed. If you have a longer, thicker beard, you might opt for a thicker oil, as it will help keep your beard hair under control. Heavier carrier oils to look for are castor, avocado, olive, and the like. On the other hand, if you have a shorter beard or stubble, a lighter oil might be a better choice.

Lightweight carrier oils to look for include almond, fractionated coconut, and apricot kernel, to name a few.

One thing to keep in mind when shopping for beard oil or any product is that you get what you pay for. While there are certainly affordable options out there, if you want a high-quality beard oil that will work wonders for your hair and skin, you might need to shell out a bit more cash. That being said, you also don't need to break the bank to get a great product. The proof is in the pudding. Read the ingredients!

Finally, feel free to experiment with different beard oils until you find the one that works best for you. As with any grooming product, what works for one person might not work for another. Try out a few different brands and scents until you find blends that match your needs. I tried any number of beard oils myself and found many whose texture and viscosity worked well for me. I also discovered what didn't work, contributing to my interest in creating a product that feels good in my beard and with scent profiles that work for me.

In conclusion, choosing the right beard oil is essential for any bearded professional looking to keep their facial hair sharp. Look for natural ingredients (read the label), consider the scent and thickness of the oil, and be willing to spend a bit more for a high-quality product. And most importantly, have fun with it! Experimenting with different beard oils can be a great way to add variety to your grooming routine and to keep you looking and feeling your best!
