A drop in temperature and an increase in dry, brittle weather means trouble for any beard grower. Autumn and winter seasons remove moisture from the skin, leaving beards undernourished, bristly, and hard to grow.
Essential and natural oils are the answer to all your beardy woes, with each oil in this recipe picked for a specific purpose. This easy DIY works to promote moisture and growth by using the very best nature has to offer.
Avocado oil is high in monounsaturated fatty acids, higher even than extra virgin olive oil, making it a miracle worker on bristles. It works to protect against environmental stressors and damage, unclogging potentially blocked follicles to promote new growth. High in vitamin A, C and E, Apricot oil supports skin and hair health and repair. This wonderful oil is perfect for all skin types, and can rejuvenate dry and brittle hair.
The essential oils in this serum not only create a fresh, autumnal, and woodsy scent, but they also work with the carrier oils above to promote hair growth. Cedarwood oil is a known follicle stimulant, promoting blood circulation to improve hair strength and growth. It works wonderfully with Lavender oil, which works to hydrate the hair and skin, leaving your beard with a healthy sheen. By finishing off the blend with Black Pepper essential oil, the serum has the added circulatory benefits of the warming oil.
Stir the oils together and funnel into a glass container, and massage this glorious concoction into your beard once a day to say goodbye to the bearded winter blues.
