If you have ever been in (close) contact with a man’s beard, you know beards can be hard and scratchy. Coarse beard hair can be softened with the right kind of attention, so I created this simple DIY method to soften it up.

Softening Beard Hair Naturally

Beards are made from a different hair that what is on our heads and the rest of our bodies. Some scientists think it’s more harsh so it protects the face from the elements. This makes sense as our forefathers didn’t have the luxuries that we do, like heated homes and vehicles. Today we aren’t exposed to the elements as much, so such protection isn’t as necessary. Men still sport beards, but now they can be softened without worrying about losing protection.

One way to soften the hairs is to use a beard oil. The oil penetrates the hair shaft, making it softer and nicer to touch. The oil also makes it easier to trim and reduces static – a nice bonus in the winter.

Homemade Beard Oil Recipe

Ingredients

Directions

Combine all ingredients in a small bottle or glass dropper bottle. Cap and shake to mix. To use, pour a small amount into your hand and rub palms together. Stroke your hands through the beard, through all of the strands. It will feel greasy at first, but will soak in quickly.

Essential Oils for Beards*

You can add a few drops of essential oils if you wish. Some good choices would be rosemary, lavender, or bay rum. (Find these pure essential oils here.)

Additional Notes

I used fractionated coconut oil in this recipe because it remains liquid all the time, rather than most coconut oils that harden below 76°F.

The other oils in this recipe can be switched out for different oils, but these are found to have the best effects on this type of hair.

Have you (or a man in your life) ever tried a beard oil? If so, what did you think?

Comments

  1. Was wondering if it could be used for hair on the head. Just a little bit should go long way. In my area it is cold and dry and my hair needs help but I do not like using gels or stuff like them. Going to try the recipes for the shampoo and conditioner and see if they help. Do you have any recipes using horsetail for hair and/or nails?

  2. I mixed my husband some beard oil just using castor oil (I’d read in the past that has been used to help thicken sparse hair) with a few drops of tea tree oil to help with ingrown hairs. He LOVES it! The above mix sounds really nice too–and probably less sticky than castor–I may have to give this a shot in the future :)
