Keep reading to get a clear answer on whether you can use beard oil on a beardless chin or short or long beard.

Is Beard Oil for Long Beards Only?


Nope. Beard oil works for both short and long beards. You’ll find it easy to apply the oil on short beards, but you’ll need a brush or comb to make it work effectively for a long beard. Besides, beards of any length require conditioning and moisturizing.

Why You Should Use Beard Oil on Short Beards, Too

Beard oil and short beards are like a good movie and popcorn. They’re meant for each other. The best time to use beard oil is when you have short beards. Here are some of the benefits of beard oil on your short beards:

It Minimizes Itchiness

As beards grow, they can be quite itchy as they come through the skin. Can we switch up a little bit and talk about the pain accompanied by growing teeth. At my age, I still can’t believe that teeth can bring a man down to that extent. 


Now back to the beards; the best treatment you can give your skin when your beards are growing is a good beard oil massage. Moisture is what you need at this time. 


It Leaves Your Beard Smelling Fresh 

We all love a good scent and all the compliments that come with it. Most beard oils are scented. This will leave you smelling fantastic. This is sometimes a motivating factor to oil your beards. 


It Makes Your Beard Look Thicker

You will not be fake for making your beards look fuller. The easiest way to make your beards look fuller is by using beard oil. Just one oiling for a minute or two, and you have a thick-looking beard. 

How to Apply Beard Oil (on Both Short and Long Beards)

1. Clean your Beard

As mentioned earlier, clean beards leave your pores open, allowing absorption. Applying beard oil to dirty beards will only make the beards retain the dirt and not thicker and fuller as they should be. 


As you wash them, run your fingers through them and scrub them well. Do not forget to clean the skin underneath. It is where absorption occurs. 

2. Dry the Beards

Wet beards will make the beard oil slide from the beards. You should dry them so that this is avoided. The cleaner you leave your beards, the more likely it will give you back the results. 

3. Apply Beard Oil on the Skin

Use 3 to 6 drops on your palms. This is the recommended amount of beard oil you should use. You don’t need to overuse it, expecting a better result. Rub the oil on your palms and slowly rub it on your skin while massaging it. This also increases blood circulation. 




The skin and roots of your beards are left well moisturized. A well-moisturized beard is a well-kept beard. The ladies will be all over an attractive beard. Trust me on this.

4. Apply on the Beard

You can now move from the skin and roots down to the beards. Move to the beards on your neck from the sides using the same motion. You can repeat it as many times as you want.


Ensure you massage it well and evenly. You don’t want to leave some parts glowing more than others. We’re nurturing a neat beard, not a clown. 

5. Comb the Beard

Just like hair, comb your long beard after oiling it. By now, it should be quite untidy from rubbing it. You don’t need any special comb for this procedure; just use the normal one. 


This procedure applies to everyone, whether you have long or short beards. For those who want to grow a beard, it is also effective. You can do it thrice a day in the morning after showering, mid-day, and in the evening. 

Key Takeaway

Is beard oil for long beards only? Not really; it works for both short and long beards. Applying the oil on short beards makes your facial hair softer, minimizing breakouts and irritation.
