Hey Guys, looking for advice from others that sport a beard. Currently Mine has the natural curly look, however i would like to tame it to give it a straighter look so it looks cleaner and less wild. Can anyone offer suggestions on how to go about this or products to use to aid it? Oils/Conditioners/wash's/etc.

My beard is actually naturally straight. I don't really use any oils I just use this natural face wash for beards. I get it at a store here called Lush.

It doesn't dry out my beard so it had enough oil left to keep my beard straight.

Blow dry and comb after showers

I use Dashing Dan's Secret Stache.
It's like a little tin with waxy stuff in it... vanilla oak scented ;)

My gf got me that and a beard brush(I think both online. Never seen this tin before and one is lasting forever.)

I only grow in the goatee area because everywhere else is patchy ha. But what i do have basically like to grow outward so this helps keep it neat

For oils I use Grave Before Shave. Their oils are fantastic, good price, and smell amazing. There's just something about smelling like a pine cone every morning that makes the day that much easier. But if it's curly and you want to straighten it (I'm not an expert, just is just from some experience) you'll want to use oils, conditioners and a nice beard comb. Conversely, you can also use a mini straight iron.

Thanks for the advice, Im avoiding the straight iron because I dont want to risk damage. would rather do it naturally so the beard stays healthy

I don't know what I'd call my facial hair other than scruffy.

I don't use beard oil very often, but when I do, I use Old Ron's Beard Oil. I can get it the way I like and after 4 days of use, you can really feel the difference in the softness of your facial hair. Extremely affordable for a mountain man.

Going take this advice as I've been growing mine out and its just about to hit that weird stage where you just want to chop it off

Don't chop it just trim it down a number form what it is now and let it grow again. That way you don't look like a scrub. Also comb it down then take scissors and cut the stranglers that are dangling.

yeah realistically you want to cut/trim the fringes of your beard every couple of weeks. keeps the hair nice and strong

What are things you do daily / weekly to maintain a sexy beard? As I know maintaining it is important or you look like a scrub
Some of this may sound dumb. My beard is actually shorter now than it was for a while but still things to do.

Oil it daily. you don't have to use a lot of oil - usually one to two drops will suffice. If your beard gets super big (a la Steel) then 5-7 drops is still good. You litterally massage that shit through your beard and skin before you brush it. A boar bristle brush is best. As you keep taking care of it daily the hair will get softer and easier to style/look a certain way. If there's days you don't oil - still brush.

DO NOT use shampoo on your beard. It damages it.

If you have a certain style you try to maintain - clean up the stray hairs that aren't a part of your look. That's more of a personal preference thing because I don't like looking like a bum at work.

Beard maintenance really isn't that hard, but it is a daily thing.

Also, the best time to oil your beard is a bit after you've gotten out of the shower since your pores are naturally a bit more open. Cause not only is beard oil good for your beard (duh), but it's also very good for your skin!

Hey there! It may sound basic but oil your beard daily. Most of the bearded guy try to avoid this and skip this main thing to do and oil one day before wash. Not much but one or two drops will do. You can also use castor or eucalyptus oil to make the beard straightening more effective. Beard wash can also work wonders for you but yeah choose for a mild one because you don't want to damage it. It is highly recommended that rather using beard shampoo, use a mild beard wash. With beard wash, use beard conditioner for best results. Apply oil when you get right after the shower. Comb your beard. This may sound lame, but yeah, that too matters in your case. I hope this works up for you!
