Almond Oil for Beard Growth and Health
When you're looking for the best beard growth products to use it's no surprise to find that almond oil is a popular ingredient. It certainly shows up a lot and that is fine by us.
Almonds are delicious. Oh, and they're great for you beard too!
First off. Almonds contain lots of healthy fat, protein, and vitamin E. They are a nutrient-rich snack. When you press almonds, you get almond oil which is equally great for your beard as well as your skin and body.
Almond oil is rich in Vitamin E, potassium, zinc, proteins, and monounsaturated fatty acids. These properties are beneficial for increasing beard growth, eliminating dandruff, and reducing inflammation.
It's also a very light oil which is great for facial hair. Almond oil is easily absorbed by the skin and hair leaving you feeling refreshed. Not heavy and oily like one would imagine.
Why is Almond Oil So Great for Facial Hair?
- It Increases Beard Growth
Magnesium deficiencies are often to blame for hair loss (1). Almond oil encourages hair to grow due to its high levels of magnesium, biotin, and vitamin E. This can cause really brittle and dry hair which lead to what ultimately are split ends. This is bad. If you find yourself not being able to grow your beard at all because your hairs keep breaking, we recommend using beard growth products so that you'll get both a boost of growth plus your facial hairs will be protected from splits.
- It Treats Beardruff aka Dandruff
Almond oil treats and prevents dandruff by cleansing the scalp and removing dead cells. It also conditions your hair and skin to keep it from drying out (2). A dry beard will lead to many problems that will stop your beard from growing to where you want it. A common cause of dandruff is using too hot water in the shower. This really dries out skin and hair. Using a shampoo that contains harsh ingredients strip too many natural oils will also lead to flakes and dry skin under your beard.
- It Reduces Inflammation
Almond oil's high fatty acid and vitamin E (3) content makes it ideal for treating inflammation. It moisturizes and softens the skin which improves circulation to the inflamed area. Dry skin is a main cause of irritation but fighting it isn't always easy. Sometimes your body produces too much oil or not enough. Your body can get used to using a harsh shampoo and compensates. This leads to over or underproduction of oil. Underproduction leads to dry skin. And dry skin leads to inflammation.
It Strengthens Hair and Makes it Less Prone to Breakage
Almond oil contains oleic and linoleic acid which lubricates the follicle and minimizes friction during styling. In other words, the nutrients in almond oil makes your hair far less prone to damage and split ends (4).
- It Reduces Acne and Improves Your Complexion
Since almond oil has emollient and sclerosant properties (5), it is great for keeping your skin clear of breakouts. That means less irritation, less itching, and less pain underneath your beard.
