With this beard balm, I decided to go over the top! I infused Organic Golden Jojoba Oil with Rosemary sprigs for a total of 4 weeks. After draining the oil, I was left with liquid gold! This infused Organic Jojoba Oil helps to moisture your beard and alleviate dandruff. Jojoba is rich in vitamins that help to nourish your beard. It contains vitamin C, B, E, copper, and zinc. Jojoba oil helps to strengthen beard and encourages hair growth and thickness. I encourage my clients to massage the balm into the skin as well as applying to their beard. The properties of jojoba oil really helps to keep the skin moisturized without leaving it greasy.
Kokum Butter has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It also prevents dryness and is a great alternative for those that have sensitive skin. Kokum Butter is non-pore clogging and is great for stimulating healthy growth of your beard. This butter will make the hairs of your beard feel soft and supple. Plus, Kokum Butter will add shine and absorb quickly into the skin without clogging your pores.
Babassu Oil is a non-greasy oil that moisturizes the beard and leaves it shiny. This oil smooths, softens, and repairs the hair. Many of my male clients have expressed concern using coconut oil because it may irritate their skin. Babassu oil is similar to coconut oil so I decided to add it to this recipe. My clients have stated that this oil soothes their skin and adds shine.
Argan Oil is another great oil that I like to incorporate into my products. Argan oil has the ability to deeply penetrate the skin well below the surface. This oil is gentle and is hands down one of my all time favorite oils to use.
Jamaican Black Castor Oil is rich in fatty acids and vitamin E. This oil will moisturize and thicken your beard. Jamaican Black Castor Oil increases blood flow and supplies your beard with valuable nutrients. This oil is great for those who suffer from eczema and dry skin.
Vitamin E reduces any stress your hair follicles may be experiencing. It also assists with maintaining hair growth and moisture. Vitamin E boosts the hair's elasticity and shine. This oil is ideal for boosting the health of your beard.
Beeswax helps to maintain the style of your beard. Beeswax is also good at repelling dirt and grime that may get stuck in your beard from the air or while you are eating. The beeswax in this recipe has been soften so it is easy to apply to your beard. The product will glide on smooth without leaving behind any white residue. Beeswax is a great sealant and it helps the oils that are in this recipe keep your beard moisturized.
Horsetail will improve circulation and this leads to the hair of your beard being stimulated for growth. It will rejuvenate your beard while adding shine. If you are struggling with a thinning beard, this beard balm will be ideal for you.
Directions: Apply directly to a dry or damp beard using a beard brush or your fingers. A little goes a long way. Take a small amount of the product and rub it in your fingers until the moisturizing beads and balm all become liquid. Then, spread the product through your beard. You can also add this product to the skin underneath your beard for added moisture. I also recommend that you purchase my African Black Soap Shampoo to cleanse your beard. My shampoo will help to cleanse any build up of product and dirt that may collect on your beard.
My Beard Balm has beads in it. What do I do?
When you receive your beard balm, it will have a smooth appearance. Over time, your beard balm will develop small beads. This happens when the beeswax, butter, and oils began to separate. This does not effect the performance of the beard balm in any way. Once your fingertips come in contact with the beard balm, it will immediately start to melt. Then, you can apply the balm to your beard.
