7 Best Beard Products Every Beardsman Needs
Beard OilsBeard oil is an absolute necessity for every man who’s serious about growing out a longer beard or keeping their current crop of facial hair maintained. Having a beard means you have to take care of it. Unfortunately a lot of men don’t believe they have to use any products at all. But men should be taking care of their facial hair just as they’d take care of the hair (or lack thereof) on their heads. For one, beard oil is a hydrating mixture that aids the skin and helps soften and makes beard hair manageable, which means it doubles as both a nourishing agent and styling product. The beard oil is in a sense mimicking the natural oils your skin produces. As your beard grows out, the skin underneath needs to produce more of these oils. Our skin can’t always keep up with this new production demand, so what often happens is the skin underneath and the beard start to become dry, itchy and could start to produce dandruff (beardruff). Yuck! Hygiene always comes first whether it’s the body or the beard, so always keep that in mind. No matter where you live whether it’s in a frozen wasteland or in the sweltering heat – beard oil will help hydrate your skin. So how do you use beard oil?
How to apply and use Beard Oil
- To use beard oil, begin by pouring a dime-sized amount into your hand. This amount may increase or decrease depending on the length and thickness of your beard, but is a great baseline.
- Once the oil is in your hand, rub your hands together before beginning to apply the oil.
- After thoroughly massaging the oil into your beard and the skin underneath, use a brush to shape and style your mane.
- Vitamin E
- Sandalwood/Fir Needle Oil
- Sweet Almond Oil
- Orange Sweet Oil
- Jojoba Oil
- Argan Oil

Beard BalmsBeard balm provides your mane with the nourishment needed to encourage growth and soften rough hairs. Balm combines all of the goodness found in beard oil and wax, allowing you to shape, style and condition your beard. The key to getting the most out of your beard comes from working the balm over each strand of beard hair. It’s almost similar to an advanced moisturizer as it will keep working long after you first put it on. Beard balms have hydration and protective properties that will keep your beard hydrated and protect from damage from the wind and too much sun exposure. High quality organic beard balm comes as a triple threat because of its ability to help shape your beard, moisturize and relieve yourself of itchy skin. Sometimes oil just isn’t going to be able to manage rowdy beard bedhead in the morning. This is where your balms and waxes come in.
How to apply and use Beard Balm
- Begin by using your thumbnail to scrape the product from its tin.
- After acquiring enough balm to completely cover your mane, rub it between your hands before gently massaging it throughout your beard.
- Once the balm thoroughly applied to your beard, use your hands or a beard comb to shape and style your mane
- Fir Needle Oil
- Coconut Oil
- Shea Butter
Don’t forget some extra love for that mustache either, a great wax could really up your mustache look.
Mustache WaxBeard and mustache wax is ideal for those places of unruliness. If you’ve ever seen a perfectly tamed handlebar mustache, then you know the power of wax. Gel is the equivalent essential for grooming and styling hair. The wax is there to tame the wild. Wax will not only help maintain the whiskers from jutting out everywhere, but also give a much fuller look. Sometimes our beards will stick out too much on the sides or condense into one spot. While you’re out brushing your beard you can then apply wax. Rest assured that this beard will not be going anywhere. A wax that manages to keep your mustache from drooping and leaves your pliable is a potent mix. You don’t want to have to style a rough Brillo pad because of hardening wax agents. Our wax is smooth and doesn’t leave your mustache with that dreaded stiff feeling.

Beard Combs & BrushesA wide-toothed, beard comb feels like a gift from the gods themselves. When you’re getting out of the shower and have a wet, possibly even tangled beard. Your beard is at its weakest when it is wet, and it doesn’t take much to stretch your beard hairs, which will damage the hair and could even take chunks of your hard-grown beard away from you. The teeth of the comb are perfect for untangling your wet beard without putting unnecessary strain on your hair follicles. Beard combs are also great for styling your beard, as they allow you to make more precise choices with its appearance in fewer strokes (if you comb it too much, your beard hair will break down and split much easier). A beard brush is great for a mid-day touch ups. Its multi-leveled bristles work well on dry facial hair, and allow you to quickly reach the entirety of the beard while you direct it back to the shape throughout the day. As a bonus, giving your beard that direction will also encourage it to grow the way you want it. Beard brushes are also the ideal tool to properly and evenly distribute oils on your beard, both natural and otherwise. Evenly distributed oil ensures that your entire beard is healthy, while also making sure every patch of the mane is covered to prevent a random itch in one small spot.
How to use a Beard Comb
- To properly use a beard comb, simply take the comb and - with one hand - stroke your beard at a downward angle.
- After a few strokes, you should notice that your mane is beginning to take its glorious shape — angle the comb more to get the shape just right. A beard comb is the perfect companion for any face forest.
