Will Beard Oil Make Your Beard Grow Faster?by Varun Malhotra Fashion Blogger
A Jan-2018 article published in the Times of India pegged the total value of India’s beard care market close to INR 100 crores. It indicates the growing demand for beard care products which have moved beyond the basics such as a shaving cream and an aftershave lotion. With many beard styles—from hairy vagabond look to the classic French cut coming into vogue, men have now shifted from the rudimentary routine of shaving every day to a proper grooming regimen. It starts with better beard growth and then shaping it according to the cut and style of one’s choice. So now, it all begins with a fuller beard which unfortunately everyone is not blessed with. That is why men are now choosing beard oils to get a healthy beard. But, is it just a fad or do beard oils help grow a beard faster? Well! Read further to find out.
Yes! Beard oils promote beard growth. For example, one patented formulations for beard growth and restoration states that among other types of oils, “sweet almond oil is a rich source of vitamins that stimulates hair growth, strengthens hair reducing breakage and adds shine.” So, what exactly do beard oils do? The best beard oils help nourish your hair follicles for healthy growth; this means less breakage and a thicker, fuller chin-bush that you may not be able to get quickly without a high-quality beard oil.
How does it work?
Beard oils that contain ingredients like Argan Oil, Geranium, Frankincense, Juniper berry, Almond Oil, Hazelnut Oil, and Jojoba Oil help promote beard growth by removing unwanted dead skin cells and moisturising the skin underneath your beard. The oil penetrates the hair pores and enhances the elasticity, thus making beard grow faster. Further, loaded with anti-microbial properties, antioxidants, and vitamin E, beard oil repairs the damage to the cellular membranes of your facial hair and strengthens it also. Stronger beard means less hair falling out of the beard, more growth, and bushier whiskers.
What are its benefits?
Beard growth is just one but not the only benefit of applying beard oil. Let’s see what some other benefits of using it are-
Prevents dandruff- Yes! Even your beard can get those pesky and itchy white flakes; a problem more common during winters. Look for beard oils with thyme as it is known as a potent anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory ingredient. A study published in the American Journal of Research Communication confirms that “thyme contains carvacrol that is a monoterpenoid phenol and has a powerful antioxidant activity. It also has anti-microbial and anti-fungal activity (37,38).”
Makes beard manageable- Beard oil, especially those with sources of Vitamin E such as argan oil, makes hair silkier, shinier, and softer. A rough and dry beard gives an unkempt look; thus, beard oil should be used to pre-condition your beard before shampoo. It also prevents breakage due to chemicals in shampoo that you use to wash your beard.
Prevents split ends and frizz- When massaged properly, beard oil nourishes every strand of your beard and helps prevent split ends and flyaways.
