Can I use Brylcreem on my beard?

Is it possible to use Brylcreem on your beard? The answer is yes, but it depends on your beard. If you have a short and neat beard, keep away from it. If you have one that's longer than half an inch and not too thick, then go right ahead!

Brylcreem for your beard.

If you have a short beard, or if your beard is on the shorter side of things and you don't mind having it look like it's got a light coating of white paint on it all day, then yes—Brylcreem is fine for your beard. If your beard is longer than just "short," however, then I would err on the side of caution and avoid using any styling products in general. This can be because they make your hair greasy looking and feeling (which nobody wants), or they cause breakage that can lead to more split ends (also not ideal).

If you have a very long beard with lots of length at the bottom end, I'd avoid using anything that has even remotely similar properties as Brylcreem (i.e., silicone) altogether. Silicone-based products tend to weigh down long hair and make it appear limp because there's too much product weighing down each strand; this may also contribute to tangling if left untreated by regular washing with shampoo or conditioner regularly throughout the day.

Brylcreem is petroleum based

You may be wondering if you can use Brylcreem on your beard, given that it is a petroleum-based product. Petroleum based products are not necessarily bad for your skin, but they should be used with caution and care. While most people know what petroleum is — a byproduct of crude oil — they may not know that it's found in many common everyday products from food to make-up to shampoo.

There are several reasons why this might be harmful to your skin:

  • Petroleum is thick and sticky

  • Petroleum can clog pores and cause acne breakouts or other skin irritation problems. This includes the nose area as well as areas where hair grows, such as on the face or chest area.

  • Don't use too much. If you want to get the most out of this product, don't put a lot on your beard—just rub it in lightly and then comb through the hair with a brush.

  • Don't use it every day. While Brylcreem is safe for daily use if applied sparingly, some men find that using it every day can irritate their skin or cause acne breakouts. If you have sensitive skin, try using Brylcreem just one or two times per week until your skin gets used to the product before upping your frequency to see what works best for you personally.

  • Don't use it if you have dry skin already—it could make things worse! When applying any kind of grooming product onto facial hair (whether it's Brylcreem or not), make sure that any conditioners are absorbed into all parts of your face before putting on moisturiser or other topical creams; otherwise some areas will be left feeling sticky instead of soft after application time has passed by which might lead someone like me who suffers from dryness around my chin area due being diagnosed with rosacea earlier this year."

You can use Brylcreem on your beard, but not too much.

You can use Brylcreem on your beard, but you should use it sparingly. It's not a good idea to use it every day, and you should not apply too much of the product at once. This can make your beard look greasy and clumpy, resulting in what is often referred to as "Brylcreem hair" or "Brylcreem duck."
