My opinion on flaxseed oil for beards
For your beard, linseed oil is one of the care products that can quickly become indispensable! Its regenerating and protective action on the skin and your hair brings a little softness to irritated skin.
Very rich in fatty acids and vitamin E, it moisturizes and nourishes in depth while strengthening your hair.
I particularly recommend it to sensitive skin that is often irritated by shaving or dry.
What is linseed oil?
Flaxseed oil and its cultivation originate from ancient times. The seed is used, which is cold-pressed from which the oil is extracted. Flaxseed oil has antiseptic and softening properties.
It is of golden yellow color with a rather pronounced smell. Its texture remains is not very dense compared to other oils.
It is very rich in mono and poly unsaturated fatty acids as well as vitamin E. Let's take a look at its benefits on your beard (and your body).
What are the benefits of flaxseed oil on the beard?
Flaxseed oil is known for its benefits for the body but not necessarily for the beard. This is due to the fact that it is mainly used for hair.
Linseed oil on the beard allows to :
- Nourish in depth your beard, on the one hand fatty acids it contains (Omega 3 and Omega 6).
- Strengthen the sheath of your hairIt is therefore very useful for fine, brittle and sensitive hair.
- It protects your hair (and your face) by forming a barrier against external aggressions.
- Act as an anti-inflammatoryIt is therefore useful as an after-shave (like other oils) and will soothe irritated and dry skin.
- Healing and regeneration damaged and aggressed skin
That's quite a lot of benefits for an oil that is still unknown in its use for health.
Does flaxseed oil make my beard grow?
No, flaxseed oil will not make your beard grow, but it will provide the necessary nutrients to your hair. It will make them stronger and more resilient. However, it does not have any elements that stimulate beard growth.

- Take a few drops in your hand and rub them together to heat the oil
