Are Beard Oils Effective? Extra Valuable Info You Need

If you are new to the beard care scene, I can hear you thinking, are beard oils effective?

The answer depends on what you expect from a beard oil.

Are they effective for accelerating hair growth - NO.

Are they effective to assist growing a beard - YES.

Beards grow just fine without it right? Yes, they do, BUT Braw Beard oil will make the process of growing a beard much more enjoyable.

Let me explain. Braw Beard oil is a natural facial hair leave-in conditioner. It is designed to moisturise the skin underneath the beard reducing dry skin and irritation while leaving your beard feeling super soft.

There are several very cheap versions on the market so do your research before buying. If it is cheap, there is a high chance it is rammed full of chemicals to prolong shelf life. These products can actually do more harm than good by drying out the hair and skin rather than nourishing it like the high quality Braw Beard oil does.

One of the main reasons people shave is because they get a very itchy beard in the process of growing. Dry skin, inflammation and dehydration can all play a part in creating an itchy beard.


What makes Braw Beard oils effective?

Our beard oils are 100% natural and the fragrances are built with essential oils (plant based) rather than fragrance oils (synthetic). Our base oil ingredients are:

Hempseed oil – contains omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids which may stimulate hair growth. The oil promotes blood circulation on the scalp too, it’s easily absorbed by the hair which can help strengthen the hair, reducing breakages.

Jojoba oil – it’s an oil extracted from the seeds of the jojoba plant. It is rich in vitamins and minerals too. This oil is great as a moisturiser which is good for the scalp to reduce dandruff, itchiness and irritation.

Vitamin E – the antioxidants in vitamin E oil have been known to repair damaged hair follicles and hair shafts. It is a deep moisturiser for your hair and skin which therefore reduces dry skin and irritation. Vitamin E oil may protect your hair from the elements too.

Argan oil (not in Grafter, Lover or Wulver) – is produced from the kernel in the argan tree. Known as liquid gold, argan oil helps repair damaged hair and split ends. It is a great leave-in conditioner (which our beard oil is anyway) which can help reduce irritation, inflammation, sores and itchiness in the skin below under your facial hair.

In addition, the fragrances are made from essential oils which are extracted from plants too. More details on these can be found HERE.


So are beard oils effective?

Therefore, you can see from the ingredients listed above, Braw Beard oils are made from the best performing natural oils. This makes our products very effective in assisting your beard growth journey making it as easy as possible.


What our customers say.

Luke H

"I had spent the last few years without a proper beard care routine and would impact my mental health as well. I've been following JJ and brawbeard social media pages for a couple of years now and finally bit the bullet and bought some beard wash, brush and the best smelling beard oil I've ever used. I was amazed how soft my beard felt, so quickly after applying the oil and brushing it through my beard. Thanks JJ and the braw team! I will be ordering again"

Jason B

"Wow, I’ve been using an off the shelf oil (not cheap) daily for around 5 months and just standard hair conditioner. Tired of a dry and rough feeling beard I searched the web for an all natural vender with top quality ingredients and top reviews, preferably from the UK. Braw is where I landed and I couldn’t be happier with the instant results beard feels so much lighter and stays soft for far longer with this oil, the wash feels great and doesn’t lather up which tells me it’s proper stuff. Vanilla butter smells great too and holds well. Big thanks to JJ who I messaged directly with some advice and he took the time out to get back to me straight away with sound advice which saves me money (he could of taken advantage for profit). Thank you sir customer for life here."

"I had used various beard oils before with limited success. I decided to try Braw Beard Oils and was impressed with how good it made my beard feel. It doesn't make my beard feel clogged or heavy. I found with some previous oils that with even the correct amount used and with brushing through, my beard would often feel grubby, heavy and it would clump. No such issue with Braw Beard, healthy nourishment. The beard wash is amazing too, I feel as if it gives my facial hair a lift and a bit of volume. Definitely feel fresh and being unscented, it's great for the beard oil afterwards. The brush is great, it's almost addictive to use as it's so gentle yet effective at working through my beard."
