How To Make Beard Oil Effective On Head Hair

We're often asked can beard oil be used on hair? It seems obvious but I can understand why because head hair is different in texture and thickness than beard hair.

In fact, before Braw Beard was a company, I was making hair oil for my wife after studying sports massage therapy. Part of the course was to make massage oils which left me with excess oils to play with. She was using expensive hair oil at the time so I decided to make her some natural hair oil. I had facial hair so I began to use it on my beard which worked, but tweaked the recipe ratios slightly to suit the beard hair and Braw Beard oils was born.

Using beard oil on hair?

Yes, many of our customers use Braw Beard oil on their hair. Any extra oil on the hands from beard application gets run through their head hair (or skin if they're like me and have no head hair). Throughout the Braw Beard journey, many women have become fans of using Braw Beard oil in their hair too. So much so that we released the Mrs Braw's Hair Oil range in 3 versions, Lover, Heather and Anniversary18 scents. Mrs Braw's Hair Oil uses the same ingredients, just the ratios are slightly tweaked to suit thinner hair.

Base ingredients

Hempseed oil – contains omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids which may stimulate hair growth. The oil promotes blood circulation on the scalp too, which the hair easily absorbs. This may strengthen the hair, reducing breakages.

Jojoba oil – it’s an oil which is 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 may 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 from essential oils which come from plants too. More details on these can be found HERE.
