When You Should Start Using Beard Care Products.

What beard length should I start using products at is a question that we get asked often. We recommend using beard care products from the start of growing a beard. I know you'd expect us to say that, being a beard care brand. However, there is good reason. Let me explain below.

What does beard oil do?

Braw Beard oil is an all natural leave-in conditioner that is designed to moisturise the skin underneath the beard. This keeps dry flaky skin at bay which reduces irritation (the main reason guys give up growing and shave). Keeping the skin moisturised from the beginning with make the process of growing more pleasant. Just a few drops of beard oil massaged into the skin with soften the skin and stubble.

what beard length

– 100% natural conditioning oil to nourish facial hair.
– Hempseed oil base may enhance beard growth.
– Argan oil can reduce irritation, inflammation and itchiness in the skin below under your facial hair..
– Non greasy
– Handmade in small batches in Scotland

It has only natural ingredients, chosen for their beneficial properties.
Which means it nourishes the facial hair from root to tip.
So that you can have an attractive beard that will not itch or leave dandruff on your shirt.

Our 50ml bottles last 3-6 months depending on beard length. Available in 10ml sample sizes too.

What beard length should I start using other products?

Other beard care products that we recommend using are Braw Beard Wash, Beard Butter, a brush and a comb.

When starting out, I'd recommend using a beard brush alongside Braw Beard oil. I know it sounds daft, brushing when there is only short stubble. But as the new hair grows in, dirt and grime in the pores can cause ingrown hairs (READ MORE HERE). Brushing daily will help keep the pores clear to let the hair grow as intended.

– Made from bamboo
– Medium strength boar bristles to avoid damaging hair & skin below
– Bristles evenly distribute product throughout the beard
– Curved handle for comfort
– Pocket size
– Braw Beard detail engraved in the handle

We have been getting great results with this brush for a fuller looking beard.
Just apply oil or butter to your facial hair then brush for best results.

What our customers say:
“Bought the beard brush and the arctic explorers 1813 beard oil n chocolate orange beard butter.all I can say that in 30years growing a beard the best products I’ve used by a country mile” – Jonathan P.
“So after leaving my cheap beard brush in a hotel I decided to buy one from braw. At first I seen it and thought it’s half the size of my last one. After the first use I was amazed at how well it worked. The shape just fits really well into you hand and contours your face well.” – Lee L.
