As your beard grows, the hair needs moisture and nutrients to thrive, which it takes from the skin on your face. This exhausts the finite amount of oils and moisture that your skin holds, as it now shares its stores with your beard, which can lead to both dry skin and brittle hair. This is a common cause of the dry, flaky skin that results in unsightly ‘beardruff’. Gnarly Joe® Beard Conditioning Butter promotes healthy beard growth by replacing those depleted oils in your skin, soothes itchy skin, moisturises and softens your beard, and helps prevent beard dandruff.
The conditioner is a very soft balm which melts almost immediately on contact with your body heat. Because the conditioner has a low molecular weight, it can penetrate the pores of your skin and the roots and follicles of your beard hair, so that it conditions properly from a deep level.
If you were to view your individual beard hairs through a microscope, you'd discover that the outer shafts of the hair are covered in scales. When your hair is dry and brittle, these scales stand up and away from the hair shaft, creating a rough and untidy look. The melted plant butters in Joe's conditioner lay these scales flat, and allow your hair to look neater and more shiny. Additionally, the insides of your hair are actually hollow (this space is called the Medulla, and contains hollows and fragments). Once melted, the Coconut Oil in Gnarly Joe® Beard Butter Conditioner seeps through these hollows, conditioning your hair from the inside out.
