How to Stop Your Beard from Itching

Beards have been grown and worn by men since ancient times. They were a sign of maturity, an object of convenience, and many became symbols of power or status. Today, more and more American men are growing and maintaining their beards.

Despite the coolness and novelty of growing a beard, the actual process of growing a beard can be uncomfortable. Uninitiated beard itch, flakiness, and general discomfort are common symptoms that affect beard growers around the world.

Regular washing and shampoo are crucial to the general hygiene of the beard and to the prevention of unwanted odors.

Beyond that, modern beard oils can be life-saving.

Like any other product, the range of beard oils is simply astounding.

There's everything from mass-produced synthetic products that promise all sorts of results to natural products that are sold locally or online.

For beginner beard growers, we recommend the use of unscented beard oil. Unscented is crucial because many products tend to strongly project their scent throughout the day (and overwhelm any other scent you may have). Furthermore, unscented products are a great choice for those who are sensitive to perfumes or other strong odors.

Ingredient wise, three essential oils are excellent for moisturizing the skin and hair. Argan Oil, Jojoba Oil and Grapeseed Oil are excellent natural and organic choices for keeping skin and hair healthy, soft and fragrant. Other oils can help, too, but they often have strong, pungent odors that can be off-putting for many.

As far as application is concerned, normally a drop of beard oil in the palm of your hand is enough to massage into a growing beard. The focus is to reach the skin below the hair and then massage to the outside. Repeated use will help to minimize the amount of beard itch and will also help promote hair growth and healthy beards.

Depending on where you live in the United States, there may be different places where you can find and buy beard oil. Large cities may have specialty stores, or luxury men's goods stores that carry different brands. However, if this is not the case, a variety of results will be achieved through simple Google searches. The general rule of thumb is-seek brands with a strong return policy and money back guarantee when purchasing online. The last thing you want is to spend $15, wait a few days for the shipment, and then realize that you hate the way the oil feels.
