Q. How long does your product last?
A. We use natural ingredients without preservatives in our products and the majority of have been formulated to last around 12 months. We recommend using beard wash within 6 months to get the best benefit from the product.
Q. What product/s should I buy?
A. This is entirely up to you, your beard, your lifestyle and your end goal. We would recommended starting with a beard oil and a decent brush like our boar bristle brush is a good start. A ultimate beard care gift pack or Trio pack are also great starting points if you want to get the maximum results and save some moolah vs purchasing individually. You can find more information about our products and what they are designed for here on our blog page.
Q. How often should I use each product?
Generally, this is personal preference but we recommend that if you spend most of your time around dust and grime, then you should wash your beard daily. If you spend most of your time in a clean environment, you should wash your beard every 2 - 3 days.
This again is personal preference, we recommend using beard oil at least once a day e.g. in the morning after showering. You can use the oil multiple times as required but generally we recommend 1 - 3 times a day depending on skin/beard dryness and brittleness. Beard oil should last 4 - 6 hours so you can use that as a rule of thumb or apply as you see fit to your lifestyle, beard and skin.

Q. I Have a Nut allergy, can I use your products?
A. We use 100% natural cold pressed nut carrier oils in our products, if you have a nut allergy we would advise that you do not use our products.
Q. Do beard rollers, beard serums and growth oils really make my beard grow where my beard hair doesn't grow?
A. No, not from our experience, they are generally in our opinion a marketing tactic to sell more. We have tested multiple branded and imported beard rollers, serums and growth oils and we have found no difference to our beard growth when testing these. At Lejonjon we only sell what we use daily ourselves and do not recommend nor offer these items due to this.
