DIY Autumn Blend Beard Balm — You’re Going To Fall For It!
Earlier this summer, we wrote a post centered around a DIY Beard Oil to make for your beau, or if you’re a guy reading this, a beard oil for you to make. That was then, now we want to introduce a balm that can bring you into the beginning of the fall. While we spoke of the benefits of beard oil, from taming the untamed hairs, to aiding in the sometimes uncomfortable grow-in phase, today we’re touching on the benefits of a DIY Beard Balm.
Here are the top 3 benefits of using a balm (especially DIY — more creative points):
Beard balm, instead of beard oil, is a way to deep condition your beard’s hair follicles. It moisturizes in a natural way because of the presence of emollients like sweet almond oil and Shea Butter.
More Like A Hair Paste
A beard balm can help add some style to your beard maintenance routine. If you’re looking to change its shape up, balm can do that for you, oil on the other hand can’t.
While oils are great to help your beard while its growing, beard balm is the perfect companion for when it is grown. It also is a go-to for special events, like parties, when you need to control the mane but avoid any iridescence that is common with hair and skin oils.
