As the importance of what we put on our body becomes as important as what we put in our body, you may have begun reading product labels to determine what your grooming products are made from. As you browse Uncle Jimmy’s beard, hair, and body products you’re sure to notice that black seed oil is in every single product. Here’s why it’s so powerful for beard growth.
What Is Black Seed Oil?
It’s known by several different names, including black caraway, nutmeg flower, fennel flower, black cumin, black onion seeds, kalonji, and its scientific name—nigella sativa. It grows around the world, including Southwest Asia, Eastern Europe, and throughout the Middle East.
Whichever name you prefer, the seeds are pressed into a powerful oil that can be consumed or applied topically. While we’re all for a topical oil, we added black seed oil to our entire product line so that you can use it with ease, and with the consistency to enjoy the skin, hair, and beard benefits.
It’s An Ancient Grooming Go-To
Black seed oil stands the test of time and has been used for centuries. In fact, it was a favorite of King Tut, Queen Cleopatra, and Queen Nefertiti. Queen Cleopatra and Queen Nefertiti remain two of the most beautiful and fascinating queens of all time, so they were certainly on to something. And it was so cherished by King Tut it was one of the treasures found in his tomb!
Now, let’s get into its benefits for your beard!
Stimulates Beard Growth
One of the 100+ compounds found in black seed oil is thymoquinone, an antihistamine sometimes prescribed for alopecia and thinning hair. These results are scientifically proven. So, if your beard is slow to grow or your new beard is growing in patchy, our products can speed things up.
Nourishing And Moisturizing
Growing a healthy beard requires nourishing and moisturizing both the hair and the hair follicle, and black seed oil does both. It is rich in the essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals your beard, follicles, and skin require, including:
• Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, folic acid, and niacin
• Magnesium, Potassium, Selenium, Calcium, Iron, Copper, Zinc, and Phosphorus
• Omega fatty acids 3, 6, and 9
The anti-inflammatory antioxidants listed above will help to minimize itch. But if you are growing a new beard there is no way to avoid the itch for the first few weeks. Keep cleansing your face and new growth twice a day and following up with beard oil or balm to keep itch to a minimum. If you struggle with psoriasis, eczema, or acne, blackseed oil is safe for you. Black seed oil is also antibacterial and antimicrobial, which will minimize your risk for redness and infection.
Grey Hair Prevention
If you aren’t ready to rock your grey, our products can help to slow the process. The Linolic acid in Omega 3 fatty acid prevents the reduction of pigment cells in your hair follicles. Use Uncle Jimmy’s Hair Care products so that you can slow this natural sign of aging. If the grey gets to be too much, your barber can help you explore your options.
Uncle Jimmy’s Black Seed Beard Growth Products
With all of those amazing benefits above, I’m sure you want to know which Uncle Jimmy’s products to use to help grow your beard. As we mentioned earlier, all of our products are formulated with this powerful oil!
That being said we have both an oil and a balm that are specially formulated to help you grow a new beard faster, accelerate slow growth of an existing beard, and fill in patches. If you are growing your first beard or facial hair, you don’t yet know your growth speed—so to be safe, go with one of the two products below. Or a combination of the two depending on your needs.
Yes, that’s right. You may want to use both oil and a balm. Oil is typically best for stubble and shorter beards, but if your hair is curly or unruly, or if you have dry skin, you can use a balm instead. Or you can use both. Oil first, then balm. Balm will also do a better job of protecting your facial hair (and skin) on days you will be in extreme hot or cold temperatures.
Our Blackseed Beard Growth Oil is blended with Biotin, Honey, and Sesame Seed Oil to accelerate beard growth. If your goal is to fill in patches and grow a full beard, this is the oil for you. It also leaves your beard soft and shiny and moisturizes and conditions. Our signature blend combats beard and skin dryness and fights ingrown hairs. Whether using oil or balm, be sure to comb or brush it in so that it evenly distributes.
Our Blackseed Beard Grow Balm is blended with Biotin, Shea Butter, Bergamot Oil, and Sweet Almond Oil to accelerate growth. It will also make your beard feel softer and improve the quality of your beard making it thicker and fuller. It adds a natural and healthy shine and keeps your beard nourished and moisturized. If your skin is irritated, the bamboo will help to soothe and heal. Apply every time you wash your face, so at least twice per day.
Other Tips For A Healthy Beard
Here are a few final tips for keeping your new beard looking its best:
- If you aren’t already, you’ll need to start cleansing your face at least 2 times a day. Cleansing is even more essential with a beard or facial hair because food particles get trapped in your facial hair which can lead to bacteria growth.
- Always apply oil or balm after you cleanse your beard. This will nourish, moisturize, and keep your beard looking its best.
- In addition to oil and balm your beard hairs need to be conditioned just like the hair on your head.
