    Beard advice

    Currently got a pretty good beard that i've been growing for about 5/6 weeks but it is starting to look a bit scraggy.

    I wash it every day to keep it clean but am wondering whether its worth using some sort of wax to keep it tidier?

    i do comb it of a morning but some of it starting to stick out a bit and i don't really want to trim it(i only have a 5mm trimmer and that will cut it too short for my liking)

    I've never used wax but I found that combing through a leave in conditioner worked well when I grew mine, I only grew it for about 12 weeks though so beyond that I'm not too sure. Hope this helps.

    Invest in a new trimmer with a variety of different sized heads?

    i have a babyliss trimmer which is superb, but as mentioned only goes up to 5mm

    i do have clippers with longer attachments but due to the nature of my beard hair, it just doesn't work as it can grow in a few different directions

    You can buy moustache/beard wax, or beard oil.

    You have 2 routes - either wash it with water and let the natural oils soften it, or use conditioner.

    Show me yours n I'll show you mine? Ha!

    Just shave it off. We're reaching a 'beard peak' (seriously!), meaning they've become so popular that they are no longer seen as rare or unusual so women stop finding them curiously attractive and other un-beardy men no longer admire them.

    I'm not growing it to become attractive or for people to admire me

    I think it really depends on what your long term plan for the beard is and what style you are going to adopt. However Jojoba oil comes recommended by most 'beardsmen' or you could give it a general trim with some scissors to let the other hairs catch up.

    i had a look at some oils and some reviews and what concerns me if that people commented that your beard then becomes quite greasy, leaving you unable to stroke it when your pondering

    i normally give it a good scrub each morning with dove soap and i think this may not have helped as this morning i simply wet it and it seems to be a lot better this evening

    i'll see how the not washing it with soap every day goes and take it form there, if anyone can recommend an oil that doesn't make the beard greasy and unable to fondle, then please do

    Its true!

    You need to strike up a good symbiotic relationship with a buffalo bird.
