You know the feeling. You're down to the last few drops of beard oil in the bottle, payday is still a few days away, and you're cursing yourself for using too much last Wednesday when you were getting ready for your date, or that time you chose not to use the dropper and you poured too much into your hand.
Beard products are a luxury for many, and in recognition of the fact that you're spending your hard earned money on some CanYouHandlebar products, I wanted to offer you 5 quick tips to make the most out of your beard product investment.
When applying your beard oil or Beard Dry Oil, always start with less and use more if needed. For beard oil, most beards don't need more than a dime to nickel sized amount. For Beard Dry Oil, aim to use an amount about the size of one or two peas.
CanYouHandlebar beard oil bottles now come with a dropper top based on customer feedback. Take advantage of it! The dropper top allows for a more measured use of beard oil, giving you the most bang for your buck.
If you apply your Beard Dry Oil with a Beard Oil Brush, you've probably noticed that the bristle pattern on the brush causes it to reach the bottom of the can in the middle while leaving a ring of dry oil around the interior of the can. Obviously you can scoop the remainder out with your fingers, but if you want to continue to use your beard oil brush, all you need to do is set the can on a warm surface for a while. The remaining dry oil will melt and even back out.
Whether you use your Beard Oil Brush for beard oil, Beard Dry Oil, or both, residue builds up on the bristles. This is normal and to be expected. However, too much buildup can make the bristles stick together which makes it harder for the brush to evenly distribute the product. Check out our post on How To Clean Your Beard Oil Brush for some helpful tips. I've been using the same Beard Oil Brush for over three years now - if you take care of it, it will last.
If you need some help with your beard care regimen, check out my recent post 10 Tips To Help You Start Your Beard Care Regimen. You'll often hear that once a day conditioning is recommended. I've found that for me, twice a day works best. You may find that once every other day works for you. If that's the case, you may double the amount of time your products last with this small change.
