         Beard Oil  You've decided it's time to move on from your baby face

So you've got yourself a beard, huh? It's a whole new look for you. What once was a soft chin is now a rugged statement of masculinity. You're all of the sudden looking stronger and meaner than ever before. Your PR's have skyrocketed and you've even considered buying a bike and leather jacket. The only problem is, you look more like a barbarian than a bearded god. It may be time for you to start using beard oil and balm. 

What is Beard Oil?

Beard oil is a combination of carrier oils that will help keep your beard soft and moisturized. Out of Regs Beard Oil combines Jojoba, Sweet Almond and Argan oil to act as a leave-in conditioner for your beard and skin. Depending on your genetics and sebaceous glands, your face produces different levels of sebum (the oil your skin produces). If your skin is naturally oily, beard oil used in a small amount will help keep it clean. If you have drier skin, beard oil will mimic sebum and keep your skin moisturized and healthy. Beard oil keeps your hair looking fresh and feeling soft, plus it ads a small amount of fragrance for your enjoyment. 

What is Beard Balm?

As your beard grows out, you'll notice that it may not keep the exact shape you want. There might be fly-away hairs, or one side lays different that the other. Out of Regs Beard Balm acts like pomade for your beard (because it is!) and helps it maintain shape throughout the day, while simultaneously softening and moisturizing your beard.

Why Should You Use Products?

Look, no matter how awesome your beard naturally grows out, everyone can use a little maintenance to look their best. If you've got a mountain man beard, using beard oil and balm will give you a more professional and well-kept look. If you're struggling with fullness in your beard, using products will help boost the fullness and look of what you already have. 

How to Use Beard Oil and Balm

  1. Clean your beard and dry it fully.
  2. Drop a small amount of oil on your hand and rub your hands together.
  3. Run your hands through your beard, making sure you get down to the skin.
  4. Comb your beard to help spread the oils out.
  5. Take a small amount of balm and rub it in your hands until it dissolves.
  6. Run your hands through your beard and comb it into the shape you want.

Common Questions

How Much Beard Oil Should I Use?

For shorter beards (under 1"), use 2-3 drops daily. For medium length beards (1-6"), use 3-6 drops 1-2x a day, as long as your skin underneath is responding well. For longer beards (6-12+"), use 8-12 drops 1-2x a day. As with all products, you will need to experiment to see what works best for you. Start off on the lighter end and ad more as you go. 

Will Beard Oil make my beard grow in fuller?

Beard oil is not going to change your genetics. There are plenty of other factors determining how much hair you'll be able to grow on your face. What Out of Regs Beard Oil can do is help to promote fuller hair growth, which may help your beard look more matured. 

Will Beard Oil help with itchiness?

Yes, beard oil will help reduce itching. The itchiness you feel in the first few weeks of growing out your beard comes from dry skin as well as hair poking your face as it is growing out and curling inwards. Out of Regs Beard Oil helps to soften the hair and keep your skin moisturized. 

What will Beard Oil do to my skin underneath my beard?

Beard oil will moisturize your skin and keep it clean and purified. This will help to prevent acne from forming as you're growing out your beard. Of course, always check the ingredients to make sure you aren't allergic to anything. The Out of Regs Beard Oil is formulated with specific carrier and essential oils to ensure your skin stays fresh and avoids any kind of build up. 

Can I put it in my hair?

Yep! When you're done using Out of Regs Beard Oil, just rub your hands through your hair (head, chest, back, wherever).

Should I Use Beard Oil or Beard Balm?

This is entirely dependent on your beard. I'd recommend using Out of Regs Beard Oil for any stage of beard growth, and combine it with Out of Regs Beard Balm for longer beards. When combined, you'll have a moisturized beard that can maintain its shape throughout the day.
