As the changing season approaches, there is a frequent question that many bearded Gentlemen are asking. That question is "Does the cold weather, or seasonal changes effect my beard?" The simple answer is yes, any changes in temperature or humidity can impact your beard in several ways.
However, this is not solely related to the cold weather, even excessive heat can have an effect on your beard. With that being said, lets dig a little deeper and uncover how various climates can impact your beards health and/ or appearance. 

Humidity 

Humidity is the concentration of water vapor in the air at any given time. But, how does the amount of moisture in the air impact your beards health/ appearance? To answer simply, the higher the humidity, the more frizzy your beard can appear. The less moisture in the air, the dryer your beard will feel/ appear. 

 

High Humidity

When the humidity is very high outside, your beards cuticles essentially widen. This causes the beard to both look more full, but more unkempt at the same time. This can potentially cause the hair to tangle and appear unruly. To mitigate this, we recommend using beard oil and beard balm

 

Low/ No Humidity

When there is little to no moisture in the air, it can be just as damaging, if not more than high humidity. When there is no humidity, your beard can dry out thus leaving it to appear dull/ lifeless. Low humidity can also leave your beard prone to split ends and unbearable dryness. In order to prevent this damage from occurring, we recommend using beard oil and beard butter

 

Heat  

During the summer many of us enjoy to go camping, biking, or just being outside general. Despite how enjoyable this time of the year can be, excessive heat can have a similar impact on your beard as low to no humidity. The difference being your beard can dry out much more quickly if you do not have a proper routine in place. Additionally, more time in the sun can potentially change the color of your hair thus making it appear lighter than normal. If you love being outdoors during the summer time we highly recommend that you use our beard oil and beard butter morning and night. This will provide the moisture needed to weather the brutal heat.    

 

 

 Cold

People might say that this is the most wonderful time of the year, and although this might be true, the colder months can be extremely damaging to your beard. When it gets cold outside, your skins pores and hair follicles begin to contract. This is the body's natural way of protecting you from the elements. However, this can leave the beard looking very dull and brittle. Moreover, your hair naturally grows slower in the winter months and more quickly during the warmer months. Protecting your beard from the elements is a vital part of maintaining the beards health at all times during the year. But, for the colder months specifically, we recommend beard oil and beard balm. This will help seal in moisture and protect your beard from those subzero temperatures.
