Oily ABC’s: find the right oil combination for your beard and locks

There’s so much to consider when choosing the right product that is supposed to help you replenish your locks. Considering buying plant-based, natural, virgin, or chemically enhanced hair or beard oil? Let’s detangle the frizzy hair topic – we’re here to help you understand the power of hair oils and balms!

Know your oils like you know your ABC’s

Almond oil

An ingredient used in almost every hair oil, balm, or conditioner, and we cannot express how much we love this oil ourselves. Almond oil is a holistic oil used not only for cooking, enhancing nutrition, and improving the health, it also is full of omega acids and vitamins that are vital for a healthy and shiny hairdo. As the oil is emollient, it can fill the gaps in the damaged hair and help the hair heal itself from the root and, in turn, helps the hair grow stronger, thicker, and softer.

The underdog of the oil world, and a continuously overlooked ingredient when it comes to a healthy hair care routine – beeswax. It’s a great product that offers conditioning and moisturizing effect for the hair. It’s completely natural and helps you seal off the dry and tangled beard or hair ends. Adding beeswax to the haircare routine will provide relief to those leading a busy city life, where the exposure to heat and dust is a daily struggle.

Coconut oil

By far, the most fat and protein-rich oil that plays a tremendous role in protecting your hair from various damaging external factors. The oil is predominantly composed of medium-chain fatty acids that have an undeniable ability to penetrate deeply into our hair shaft and protect it from the damage, such as UV exposure, blowdryers, and acidic or hard water. Coconut oil can be applied before a wash as a nourishing hair mask and then used to finishing up your hairdo, or give your heard that extra shine.

  • Soften the hair 
  • Helps de-frizz dry hair ends

Shea butter

Shea butter is oleic acid, stearic acid, and linoleic acid-rich natural product derived from the karite tree that originates from the African continent. It’s a relatively new ingredient in the Western mainstream cosmetic industry; however, it has been used for centuries and as the recent hype suggests – made its way back to our daily skin and hair care routines.   As the butter contains vitamins A and E, it’s proven to have detoxifying and anti-inflammatory properties. This combination of vitamins also provides a mild sun protection factor and increases the elasticity of the skin. Shea butter is solid and rich fat that makes it a great, travel-friendly addition to your suitcase!

Pumpkin seed oil

The oil that has only one mission – to prevent baldness and increase the hair count on your scalp. Pumpkin seed oil is very rich in various minerals, magnesium, zinc, and iron – ingredients that will help you fight male pattern baldness. The oil is a fairly recent discovery, but we’re sure that it’s here to stay as more clinical studies are showing tremendous interest in the benefits the pumpkin seed oil delivers.
