    The Beard Shampoo is scented with Coconut, and the Straightening and Style Wax is essentially unscented (it may carry the faint and earthy trace of tree nut). There are three scent options of Triple-Whipped Beard Softener, as follows:

    Bergamot & Benzoin: The Bergamot tree is native to Southern Italy, and produces small, citrus/lime-type fruits, that deliver a sweet, lemony, refreshing top note, with warm, floral and balsamic undertones. Joe uses Bergamot essential oil which has been expressed directly from the nearly-ripe fruits. Not only is Bergamot excellent for treating spots and pimples, but its refreshing and zesty scent has therapeutic benefits, that are known to relieve stress and anxiety. Benzoin is extracted from a tropical tree with pale green leaves and hard-shelled fruits. Incisions are made in the bark which release Benzoin resin. This provides a luxurious and subtle counterpart to the Bergamot, as benzoin has qualities not unlike vanilla and white chocolate.

    Geranium Bourbon and Black Pepper:These two 100% natural plant oils complement each other beautifully and are a perennial favourite of Joe. On paper, they shouldn't work as well as they do! The Geranium Bourbon has a sophisticated, light, green, sweet, herbaceous and rose-like scent, and the Black Pepper provides a dark hint of musk, warm wood, and exotic spice. Geranium Bourbon comes from the island of La Réunion in the Indian Ocean (a former french colony). The island was formerly known as Île de Bourbon, which is where the name comes from. The plant oil is steam-distilled from the flowers, leaves and stalks of the flower. Black Pepper: Just before the young berries turn into peppercorns (nearly ripe), they are crushed and the essential oil is extracted by steam-distillation.

    Peppermint & Highland Pine: This version is scented with two, blended, 100% natural essential plant oils. The first is Peppermint, which has been steam-distilled directly from the flowering tops and leaves of the Peppermint plant. Due to the high menthone content in this shrub, you'll get an invigorating blast and a cooling effect on your skin and beard. This refreshing scent is ideal for your morning routine, as well as using regularly throughout the day. The Peppermint makes a perfect companion to Pine; the second botanical, which has been dry-distilled from Scottish Pine Needles. This provides a sweet top note, with woody, balsamic undertones, evoking a wonderful smell of the forests.

    Beard Shampoo: It’s not necessary to use Beard Shampoo every day and, in fact, doing so could be counter-productive and actually strip the natural oils from your beard. Joe recommends that you use his Shampoo once or twice per week.

    Don’t be fooled by the thin brown viscosity of the Shampoo; it’s more concentrated than you think and you shouldn’t need much, even for longer beards. Start by dispensing a small amount into your palm and massage thoroughly into your wet beard. A rich white lather will immediately form. If necessary, you can repeat the dose. Spend two minutes using your fingers to massage the Shampoo thoroughly into your beard, getting right down to the base of the hairs. Rinse out with warm water and pat your beard dry with a towel.

    Triple-Whipped Beard Softener: Use daily and apply after washing beard (Beard Softener can be applied to wet or dry beards). Dry beard thoroughly (preferably by patting gently dry with a towel, rather than using a hair drier, which can cause beard hair to become brittle).  

    Remember; this is a very concentrated and thick cream: You won't need to use much and a little will go a long way. Just scoop out a finger-tip of cream and wipe that into a palm. Then rub your palms together, and use both hands to distribute the thinned cream into your beard. Ensure you have full coverage, and spend at least two minutes massaging the cream right into the roots of your beard, so that the skin also receives nourishment. Start with a small scoop and add more as necessary for longer beards. Finish grooming with a good quality wooden beard comb to ensure that the balm is distributed evenly.

    You can then leave your Beard Softener in, the longer the better. If you use it overnight, there's no need to wash or rinse out in the morning. The ingredients are perfectly natural and will continue doing their softening and moisturising work.

    You can use your Beard Softener throughout the day, as often as you like, as it contains gentle, hydrating, natural ingredients. As it's extra-thick and triple-whipped, you may find it more suitable as a leave-in overnight treatment, because especially on darker beards, it may leave some white residue for a few minutes, until it absorbs fully.

    Beard Style & Straighten Wax: Use daily. As this product contains only 100% natural ingredients, it's safe to use as often as you need throughout the day. This Beard Styling and Straightening Wax is kind to sensitive skin and dry, and nourishes brittle beard hair.

    As the wax is highly-concentrated, you won't need to use much: A little will go a long way. Due to the concentration of Beeswax (for straightening, styling and holding unruly beard hair), you may find the wax tough to penetrate at first. Dig your index finger into the balm and scoop out a tiny, pea-sized amount, and wipe this into your palm. Rub your palms together to melt the botanicals and plant butters, then massage in thoroughly from the skin and hair roots to the tip of your beard. Start with a small scoop and add more as necessary for longer beards. Finish grooming with a Gnarly Joe ® Sandalwood Beard Comb, to ensure that the balm is distributed evenly.

    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 products promote healthy growth by replacing those depleted oils in your skin, which soothes itchy skin, moisturises and softens your beard, and helps prevent beard dandruff.

    The wooden Beard Comb is great to finish off with, because unlike plastic combs, it does not create static. Static not only makes the hairs wilder in appearance, they can get snagged and pulled out with the harsher materials and sharper teeth. Combing your beard regularly is important to train the beard to grow in the direction that you want. It encourages the hairs to grow outwards and straight, and prevents rogue hairs from turning back and growing into the surface of the skin, which causes irritation and painful red spots.

    Shea Butter is extracted from the nut of the African Shea Tree. It’s solid at room temperature but melts at body temperature, making it easy to absorb. By penetrating the skin, it nourishes your follicles at a deep level, meaning that you can achieve stronger and better beard hair growth. Shea also regenerates hair, prevents breakage and brittle hair, and protects from further hair damage.

    Cocoa Butter works with Shea to induce healthier follicle beds, leading to stronger hair growth with reduced hair loss and a thicker beard.
