5 Must Have Ingredients for a Naturally Healthy Beard

We know how important your beard is to you. It is on your face after all!

There are a few vital all natural ingredients that you’ll want to incorporate in your beard care routine. Because yes, taking care of your beard should be a part of your daily routine, if in fact you’re after the perfect beard… 

Shea Butter

Shea butter is rich in vitamin A, E and F. Anyone whose onto natural ingredients knows shea butter is the bomb for moisturizing dry hair. It will soften the hairs, as it softens the follicles and skin down under. It will help seal in moisture and prevent the skin underneath from getting dry or irritated. 

Coconut Oil

The lauric acid in coconut oil has been praised for speeding up hair growth naturally. It also acts as a deep conditioner for the beard for those days your beard is feeling dry, or if you need to up your moisture game. Its antibacterial benefits will protect the skin from irritation and can heal any scars, ingrown hairs or acne that may rest hidden below the beard. 

Avocado Oil

Adding avocado oil can act as a natural detangler for your beard as it conditions your hair. The lecithin in avocado oil will help add vibrancy and sheen to your beard while the vitamin E oil's antioxidant benefits will reduce oxidative stress on the hair itself and the follicles too. 

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba oil will balance out the skin’s natural sebum oil production. Yeah,we know that sounds odd, an oil reducing oil production, but the sebum glands are tricked into thinking jojoba oil is the skin’s natural oil, and seizes to produce an excess amount. It also cleans the pores, so no hair gets trapped, preventing your beard from looking thick and healthy. Many people use jojoba oil to increase hair growth naturally because of all the essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals it contains. 

Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil will stimulate blood flow to the surface of the skin, which will add nutrients to the hair and the hair follicles. It will also unclog pores, treat dandruff and acne, and will help balance out the ‘grease’ level of your beard. It’s really an essential ingredient when it comes to your beard and skin. 

If your beard is feeling dry and looking dull, then yes you can and should use Dr Locs’ Leave-In Conditioner on your beard daily. There’s no way your beard will feel dry and rough after hydrating your beard hair with the right essential oils. For added nutrients and needed moisture we recommend adding Dr Locs’ Yaya Oil which contains all the essential oils your hair needs to feel soft and rich. Because yes, the hair on your head is similar to the hair on your face, except it will need even more moisture, more often. Slacking is not a thing when it comes to your facial hair and don't forget that bonnet for those locs!
