Beard FAQs

Which beard butters go well with which oils?
To maintain the beard oil fragrance, I recommend using the unscented beard butter.
However I do like to mix it up too. Some of my personal favourite combos are:
1 – Thrilla in vanilla butter with Arctic Explorer 1813 beard oil.
2 – Thrilla in vanilla butter with Heather beard oil.
3 – Thrilla in vanilla butter with Grafter beard oil.
4 – Chocolate orange butter with Jarls Northman 1263 beard oil
5 – Chocolate orange butter with Anniversary 18 beard oil
6 – Chocolate orange butter with Lover beard oil
7 – Chocolate orange butter with Warrior beard oil

What is the difference between a beard brush and a beard comb?
The beard brush has thousands of bristles designed to evenly distribute the product through your facial hair. The bristles are great for exfoliating the skin too, removing dead skin preventing dandruff.
The beard comb is designed to detangle the hair. If you have been out in the wind, in bed or even finished washing, the beard hair may have snags in it. Using the beard comb will detangle the beard hair, pointing it in the right direction. The comb will glide through hair easier after applying beard oil to your beard.

How often should I wash my beard?
This varies, it’s down to personal preference. Some customers use Braw Beard Wash daily, some use it weekly. Personally I’d recommend washing your beard with Braw Beard Wash every 2 days to start with. You will notice a nice difference after the first wash!

How much beard oil should I apply?
The answer really depends on the length of beard. The longer the beard, more oil is required. To start off with I’d recommend using dispensing 5-8 drops in your hand. Add more if you feel necessary.
