Thanks to their rising popularity, it’s become better known that to maintain a great beard you need a proper beard care routine. With so many product options for beards, it can be difficult to pick out the right type of product for you. Luckily, with decades of experience in men’s grooming, we’re here to help. For good reason, Beard Oils often get most of the limelight. However, for many beards, Beard Balm is the best way to maximise your facial hair, and using the wrong product is the most common mistake we see men making when it comes to their beard.
What is Beard Balm?
Put as simply as possible, Beard Balm is a leave-in conditioner which nourishes, softens and shapes your beard. Typically made with a softening and nourishing ingredient at its base, like Shea Butter or Cocoa Butter, Beard Balms are soft with an almost clay like consistency.
What gives Beard Balms their ability to properly nourish your beard is the blend of essential oils in the balm. This is also one of the biggest differences between a premium Beard Balm and a regular quality Beard Balm, so make sure you read the label!
Should you be using one?
If you’ve currently got a beard, the answer is probably, and if you’ve grown a longer beard, the answer is definitely. This is because the longer your beard, the harder it is for other products like Beard Oils to fully provide moisture and soften all of your beard to keep it comfortable. What’s more, your beard will require shaping on a day-to-day basis to keep it neat without acquiring a mass of flyaway hairs. This is also where Beard Balms shine, meaning you can keep your growing beard looking its best without constantly pruning.
Which Beard Balm should you pick?
The Dapper Dan Beard Balm is a premium blend of essential oils and waxes expertly crafted to contain all the elements to leave your beard looking its best. As well as nourishing your beard with essential oils, the wax in the Balm, like Shea Butter, allows you to shape your beard without leaving it feeling greasy to ensure it keeps its shape all day.
Thanks to the Beard Balm’s mix of premium ingredients, you only need to use a small amount of product to control and condition your beard, meaning that one tin will ensure a great beard for a long time. All of this combined means that the Dapper Dan Beard Balm is easily the best option to maintain awesome facial foliage.
