Beard Butter vs Beard Oil vs Beard Balm

Beard butter is going to be a little bit heavier than a Beard oil, but will provide a longer-lasting conditioning effect as a result of its heavier texture. You should apply it once a day, around the same time you’d apply an oil.

Beard oil acts as a moisturizing and conditioning agent that can help stimulate growth and treat your beard as well as the skin underneath. On the other hand, beard balm is a styling agent that can help add volume and shape to your beard, it can also deodorize and assist with locking in moisture. So, while both can nourish the hairs, oil is for softening the bristles and hydrating the skin, and balm is for styling and protecting the hairs from environmental wear and dehydration.

Right after a shower is always best for applying moisturizing products because your skin and hair are more receptive to nutrients.
