In this article, we will answer all your beard butter questions and give you 6 tips for using it like a pro.

You will learn how Beard butter works best when applied after you wash your beard. And, how it's important to dry your beard properly or you could end up with a goopy mess.

What is the purpose of beard butter?

Beard butter is a type of beard conditioner that is made with natural oils, essential oils, and all-natural ingredients like jojoba oil, shea butter, and beeswax.

It can help to tame wild facial hair, moisturize the skin beneath the beard, and reduce itching and beard dandruff.

It is designed to improve the look and feel of beards by conditioning the hair and protecting it from the elements.

How and when to use beard butter

Here are 6 tips for using beard butter for amazing results:

1. Apply beard butter immediately after showering

When you shower, your pores are open and your hair is soft, making it the perfect time to apply beard butter. By doing so, you will lock in moisture and help your beard look and feel softer and smoother.

Make sure to pat your beard dry with a towel before applying beard butter. It doesn’t mix well with a sopping wet beard. 

Don’t worry if your beard is still damp. Applying beard butter to a damp or dry beard is recommended.

2. Use a small amount

When you first start using beard butter, start with a small amount. A little goes a long way, and you can always add more if needed. Too much beard butter can make your beard feel heavy and greasy, so start with a small amount and increase as needed.

3. Rub the beard butter into your skin and hair

Once you have applied the beard butter, use your fingers to rub it into your facial hair and skin underneath. Be sure to massage it in well so that it is evenly distributed.

4. Comb or brush your beard

After applying the beard butter, use a comb or beard brush to style your beard. This will help distribute the butter evenly and make your beard look neat and groomed.

5. Let the beard butter set in

Once you have applied the beard butter, let it set in for a few minutes. This will allow the butter to penetrate your hair and skin and will help it to absorb better.

6. Reapply as needed

Beard butter is not a one-time application kind of product. You might want to reapply it a couple of times throughout the day, especially if you are going to be active.

Benefits of using beard butter:

  • Tames unruly and stray hairs
  • Prevents dry skin and dandruff
  • Stimulates beard growth
  • Minimizes split ends and ingrown hairs
  • Protects against windburn and sunburn
  • Moisturizes skin and hair

Do you put beard oil on before beard butter?

Yes, you should put beard oil on first. Beard oils help to condition and soften your beard hair, which makes it easier to apply beard butter. It also helps to keep your beard healthy and shiny.

Beard oil should be allowed to soak in for five minutes before applying the butter. It's important that the oils are fully absorbed in order to layer properly with the moisturizer.

Using too much beard oil or not letting it soak in can dilute beard butter. Be careful not to overdue it or you could end up with a greasy beard.

Should you put beard butter on at night?

Applying beard butter at night has several benefits. First, it allows all of the nutrients and vitamins from the butter to sink deep into the hair follicles and skin, which provides intense hydration.

Second, it allows the beard to relax and soften, making it easier to groom in the morning. And third, it helps to seal in the moisture from your daily shower.

We recommend applying beard butter every night during your beard care routine if you are looking for long-term results.

What's the difference between beard balm and beard butter?

Beard balms often have shea butter, coconut oil, and beeswax for extra conditioning and to help define stray hairs.

Beard butter often does as well but also has more carrier oils than a beard balm (jojoba, almond, or argan) which gives the product a lighter feel.

How does beard butter help beard hair growth?

Beard butter is a natural moisturizer and helps prevent dryness and itchiness. A big reason that men with beards have less growth is that the skin below the beard can get irritated or dried out.

Beards are full of hair follicles, and when the skin below becomes dry, it inhibits your body's ability to create new hairs in those follicles. That's why using beard butter is so important - it helps to keep your skin hydrated, which in turn allows your body to grow new hairs.

Beard butter helps seal in moisture, which prevents dryness and itchiness, two of the main problems that can lead to beard hair loss. By keeping the beard hair and skin hydrated, beard butter can help you achieve a thicker, fuller beard.

Can I use beard butter on my hair?

Yes, beard butter can be used on both your beard and hair! Beard butter is designed to nourish and condition the beard, but it can also be used on the hair. Apply a small amount to the tips of your hair to add shine and reduce frizz.
