How To Grow Beard With Jojoba Oil

How To Use Jojoba Oil For Beard Care?

To grow or not to grow facial hair has been a popular topic of fashion among men since the dawn of civilization. The trends keep on changing. But these days, having a fully grown beard is definitely in. However, growing a beard is not easy for everyone. Many men experience patchy beard growth or find it difficult to grow a longer, fuller beard. If you have been struggling with growing out your beard hair, it’s time to use cold pressed jojoba oil for beard growth.

Extracted from the seeds of the jojoba bush, pure jojoba oil is like liquid wax. It has wax esters which makes it similar to the sebum produced by your skin. This property allows it to get absorbed into your skin easily. This also makes it more stable and less prone to oxidation. Cold pressed jojoba oil also has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antibacterial properties. Let us learn more about using organic jojoba oil for hair growth on your facial skin.


How To Use Jojoba Oil For Beard Growth?

Nourishing your facial skin and beard region is important to promote healthy beard growth. A nourishing plant oil like organic jojoba oil (pronounced as ho-ho-ba) helps grow your beard faster and thicker. Jojoba oil feeds your hair follicles with essential fatty acids, minerals, and vitamins to maintain a healthy hair growth cycle. It also moisturises your skin and protects your hair follicles from free radical damage.

Here are some easy steps to use jojoba oil for beard growth -

  • Wash your face with a mild organic cleanser and pat your skin dry.
  • Take a few drops of cold pressed jojoba oil in your palms and apply it on your facial hair and the skin underneath it. Massage it just like you’d massage your scalp.
  • This step can be done every night before going to bed as the last step of your routine.

3. Protects Hair -

Antioxidants such as Vitamin E and fatty acids present in cold pressed jojoba oil strengthen your skin barrier and protect your beard hair against damage caused by environmental stressors.

4. Improves Your Beard’s Appearance -

Jojoba oil helps in keeping your beard hair look neat and groomed. By facilitating beard growth and nourishing your hair, jojoba oil helps your beard look fuller and healthier.


Things To Remember While Buying Jojoba Oil Online

There are different types and qualities of jojoba oil online. So when picking one, always make sure that the oil is cold-pressed and extracted without the use of high heat or solvents. This retains the oil’s nutritional profile. Another thing to keep in mind is to check if the oil has undergone any refining or processing to alter its aroma and colour. Pure jojoba oil has a golden yellow colour and a slightly nutty aroma.

Juicy Chemistry’s Cold pressed Jojoba oil is certified organic by Ecocert France as per Cosmos standards. It is 100% pure, unrefined, and contains no additives.


Precautions To Be Taken While Using Jojoba Oil

When applying jojoba oil, please make sure that you are not oversaturating your beard with it. Adjust the quantity based on your beard’s length and thickness. For best results, use the oil consistently and use a gentle cleanser so that your skin and hair do not get dry or dehydrated.
