The first time I used Beard oil I managed to give myself a massive reaction. If this following tale sounds like something you’re doing now, you should never use beard oil again! The following lesson is very important to the health of your beard so stay gripped.
It is a story when I first started using products on my facial hair. I would pour lots of oil into my palms and gently rub it through my beard. That wasn’t a problem. I thought the more I use, the healthier my beard will be. So I’d grab a little more before I would leave the house and would work it through my beard again.
With time, I started to get a really, really itchy beard and my initial thought was that my facial hair was dry.
So what did I do? I worked more beard oil through my hair. It created big problems! It could have been the quality of the beard oil (you have to be very careful when producing a mix because the essential oils can be very reactive to the skin. 96 – 99% of a mix should be carrier oils), or the amount I was using.
Both consequences can cause major reactions. My skin was burning and I had a huge rash where I was using products (rest assured, it wasn’t our product, it was another company’s.) I stopped using the that certain ingredient and discovered that the overuse of beard oil can create huge problems. There are a few steps you need to take to avoid the stress I endured:
1) Choose a good product
Track how much you use. Just aim for an 100% organic, cold pressed oil and you should be fine
2) Follow the guidelines
These are our guidelines for the beard oils we produce with the amount you should use daily.
– less than a 5 pence piece dosage for anyone from 0-3 months of growth
– 5 pence piece dosage for 3-6 months of growth
– 5 pence piece ++ for 6-12 months of growth
It’s all relative to the size and age of your beard. The more hair the more oil you will need. Just follow what works for you and make sure to be cautious with the amount you use.
Test the results. Everybody’s skin and facial hair is different. You might need more or you might need less than our guided dosage. There’s no fix I’m afraid, just see what works for you. I hope you found this article useful and good luck with your beard growth.
