Beard Oil Butter Balm Recipe
Even though “No shave November” has come and gone, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you (or your man), is ready to part with that glorious beard just yet. We get it!
But many men just allow their facial hair to grow willy-nilly, as it will, without regard to grooming or manscaping.
Unfortunately for us ladies, we have to deal with the repercussions of “beard burn” from coarse, dry facial hair as a result, and to look at our guy with sometimes unkempt, wild patches coming out of his face. Not so fun.
That’s why we love making this incredible “Shea butter Beard Balm” to promote even facial hair growth, while adding softness and shine!
And, for super girlfriend brownie points, It makes a super thoughtful DIY Valentine’s day gift too!
Why not make your love this rich, all natural beard Balm?
Beard Butter Benefits:
Stronger Hair: The moisturizing effect of Shea butter as well as its abundant nutrients acts as a layer of armor that protects and strengthens your beard strand by strand.
Healthier Follicles = Even Growth: Even hair growth can only be achieved by ensuring that each hair follicle gets the proper nutrition. Shea butter can effectively smoothen and soften the follicles allowing for hair to grow unimpeded.
Moisturizes Skin: Avoid dreaded ‘beard-druff’ that can result from having dry skin on your face.
Beard Butter Balm:
There’s no need to risk exposing your beard and skin to harsh chemical-based beard products. Here’s a short recipe that you can use to start taking better care of that manly bear and nourish the skin underneath.
