Does Beard Oil Help Beard Growth? Here Is The Truth.

If you're reading this, I assume you are bearded and have encountered various beard grooming products, including beard oils. One common question among bearded individuals is, "does beard oil help growth?" The answer is more complex than you might think.

Natural beard oil doesn't typically stimulate beard growth directly but can create an environment conducive to healthy hair growth. To answer the question, let's dive into the science behind how natural beard oil can interact with beard growth.

Does Beard Oil Help Growth?


Braw Beard oils contain carrier oils like jojoba, argan, or hempseed. These oils closely mimic the natural oils produced by the skin's sebaceous glands. They support the hair and skin underneath when applied to the beard. Preventing dryness and flaking (dandruff) helps remove any hindrance to hair growth, which could otherwise occur due to irritation and itchiness. As a side note, brushing daily also helps exfoliate away dry skin.


Answering the question, "Does beard oil help growth?" involves understanding nutrition. Certain oils may provide nutrients beneficial to hair health, like vitamin E, known for its antioxidant properties, and fatty acids in oils like hemp seed oil. Supporting the overall health of hair and skin indirectly promotes optimal hair growth conditions.

Blood Circulation:

Some essential oils, such as peppermint oil (found in Arctic Explorer 1813) and cornmint (found in Anniversary 19), increase blood circulation when applied topically. Improved blood flow enhances the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to hair follicles, potentially supporting hair growth.


Natural beard oils form a protective layer around the hair shaft, preventing damage from environmental factors like wind, sun, and pollution. Healthy hair is less prone to breakage and splitting, and appears thicker and fuller.

Reduction of Inflammation:

The natural ingredients in Braw Beard oils possess anti-inflammatory properties. Inflammation around hair follicles can inhibit hair growth, so reducing inflammation creates a more favourable environment for growth.

Reduction of Friction:

Lubricating the hair with beard oils reduces friction, making it easier to comb and style without breaking the hair, indirectly supporting a fuller beard appearance.


Does beard oil help growth? Braw Beard oil primarily acts as a conditioner and protectant rather than a growth stimulant. Keeping the hair and underlying skin healthy indirectly creates great conditions for hair growth. As I have said, beard oil is designed to make the beard-growing journey enjoyable and easily manageable. It gives your facial hair and skin the best opportunity to grow, but it isn't a magic growth product; there is no such thing.
