How to Apply Beard Oil

Birchbox

By Adam Hurly, writer & editor at Birchbox 

Before You Begin
• The best time to apply is after a hot shower, when your hairs are cleanest and softest; this is when they will most easily absorb the oils.
• Dry your beard completely before applying any oil. Water will prevent the oil from being absorbed.

Beard Oil Application
Put 2-3 drops of oil in your palms. (This will go a long way, and you can always apply more if you need it later.)

Use a comb—with the teeth facing inward—to evenly distribute the oil while setting the beard back in place.

Additional Tips:
• Frequency of application varies based on season, climate, and numerous other factors. Start with an every-other-day application and adjust as you deem necessary.
• Not all beard oils are alike. Be sure to find a beard oil that best suits your needs (and senses).
