What Is Braw Beard Oil And How To Use It Properly

What the hell is Braw Beard Oil??  Why do I need that shit?? Yeah, we get asked that with a look of confusion quite often. See, that shit has many benefits that will improve your beard health, beard life and probably the life of others who come in contact with it. A familiar scenario at events we attend is, a wife will drag her big, bearded, biker looking husband over to our stand. He will stand looking uninterested, she will ask us lots of questions, whilst smelling the beard oil options. He will buy one to keep her happy. THEN when he gets home and actually uses the beard care products, he will notice a difference in the health and appearance of his beard. Then we usually get an email thanking us for making a great product and how his wife loves the smell and enjoys kissing him more now, because his facial hair is soft and doesn’t smell of his dinner. Every few months, we will see his name appear in the order list. This happens more than you’d think. So what is Braw beard oil? Beard oil is one of the most important tools you can have in your bathroom’s box of tricks. Our motto is – For Stubble To Skiffin’ Rubble – our beard oil can be used on anything from a 5 o’clock shadow to a beard scraping the ground. To put it simply, beard oil is a cosmetic oil used to make your facial hair more attractive and manageable. Once you use it, you’ll wonder why you never did before. There are synthetic and natural...

How To Choose The Best Beard Comb For Your Hair Type

Choosing a beard comb may seem like an easy task, right? You may be using your significant other’s plastic comb? Yes, an ordinary plastic comb will do ok, but it won’t perform as well as a beard specific comb. Using a beard comb properly, regularly, can stimulate the follicles, in turn helping facial hair growth. There are certain aspects you will want to consider; 1. The material. 2. The teeth shape. 3. The space between the teeth. 4. The size. 1. The Material Many combs that can be bought off the shelf for much cheapness are exactly that, cheap. Made from plastic, from a mould that will probably have ragged edges that will catch your facial hair. This will potentially damage your beard. We prefer natural products, like wood. Sandalwood being one of the favourites for a beard comb. Sandalwood is our preferred material, it’s smooth, natural, it has very unique patterns, it also smells amazing and absorbs a little amount of beard oil. This helps the beard comb glide through the beard and it takes on some of the scent from the oil, what’s not to like? 2. The Teeth Shape There are a few shapes of teeth available, this is where you need to be careful. Some have square edges, if these are not finished properly, the edges can tear your facial hair and cut or weaken it. Our comb has cylinder like teeth with rounded edges, designed to glide with through your beard with no snagging. Beard combs distribute beard oil/beard balm evenly and leave it feeling soft and fuller looking. We chose to give our beard comb long teeth to ensure full coverage, control...

How To Choose The Best Beard Brush For You

Choosing a beard brush may seem like an easy task, right? You may be using your significant other’s hair brush? One of our athletes, before joining Braw Beard, was even using his cat’s brush!! I won’t say who… Yes, an ordinary plastic brush will do ok, but it won’t perform as well as a beard specific brush. There are certain aspects you will want to consider; 1. The handle material. 2. The bristles. 3. Bristle stiffness. 4. The handle shape. 5. The size. 1. The Handle Material Many brushes that can be bought off the shelf for much cheapness are exactly that, cheap. Made from plastic, from a mould that will probably have ragged edges that will catch your facial hair. This will potentially damage your beard. We prefer natural products, like wood. Bamboo being one of the favourites for a beard brush. Bamboo is our preferred material, it’s smooth, natural, it has very unique patterns and absorbs a little amount of beard oil. This helps the beard brush glide through the beard and it takes on some of the scent from the oil, what’s not to like? 2. The Bristles There are natural and synthetic options available, much like the handle options. But, the bristles of choice on a beard brush are boar bristle. Again, we like to go with the natural option. Boar bristles distribute beard oil/beard balm evenly and leave it feeling soft and fuller looking. We chose to give our beard brush contoured bristles to match the shape of your face when brushing. 3. Bristle Stiffness Believe it or not, there are different grades of stiffness for the...

Thank you

Thank YOU for YOUR support. Braw Beard started off in 2012 as an experimental solution to dry and irritated facial hair after mountain biking. I never expected it to gain so many fans and people I now call friends. It is has been hard work… and still is. But man, it’s well worth it. We STILL make our beard oils by hand in Scotland. Yes, we could outsource them, but those are what started this brand and we’ll never forget that. So, as long as we can continue to produce them and meet demand, we will. There is some cool shit on the horizon and I am looking forward to sharing that with you. Again, I want to personally thank you for joining and supporting Braw Beard on this crazy journey. I hope you enjoy Braw Beard care as much as we do. Thanks for reading. John Jackson...

My beard routine to keep it pristine.

It’s John again from Braw Beard Oils, sorry it’s been a while since I’ve done a video, it’s been kinda busy. We’ve got 2 new products coming out. We’ve got the new snapback coming out next week, next Friday it will be on the website. And, we’ve got a new product coming out that I kinda want to keep under wraps just now but it will be out in August time, some of the Brawtherhood know what it is. That’s a thing actually, if you haven’t joined the Brawtherhood Facebook group, look it up on Facebook. It’s just facebook.com/groups/thebrawtherhood. There’s an application process to get into the group, just to make sure you are a fan of Braw Beard Oils and you’re using the products but just follow those steps and we’ll get you in. There’s exclusive discounts and stuff in there. Also, people have been asking what my daily routine is for maintaining my beard. I tried to do a live Facebook video but the connection was crap so it keep going pixelated and it was a nightmare, so I thought I’d just do a quick video and upload it. Basically I start off using the Braw Beard Wash, the beard shampoo every morning. Some people say just use shampoo every 3 days or so, personally I use it every morning, it’s all natural, there’s no chemicals in it, it’s got aloe vera in which is really good for the skin underneath, keeps the dry skin away and keeps the flakiness away and keeps the skin hydrated too. Once I jump out the shower, towel dry it gently,...
