My favorite is Roughneck products, but we each have to find what works for our unique needs.
 
Heck, I started off using olive oil, straight from the grocery store.  It worked great, though the commercial beard oils work better for me.

I like the beard balms offered by Badass Beard Care but like Chuck said the base seems to be a mix of cocoa butter and coconut oil. It works good though and they offer samples for $2.50 or something to get you started.

My length is finally coming back and I'm treating it more and more. I work in a harsh chemical environment though so mine needs lots of help.

Is there anything that feels better than a 2 mile run, at the park, shirtless, with my beard flowing in the breeze?

Looks good Juan, keep up the good work!

Hi, I've been growing out my beard for a month now and I plan to let it grow for another 2 months. I'm really excited to see the results.

Eh, my goal isn't really a goal. I lost my precious (braun shaver) and my beard trimmy thingy, so I figured I'd let my beard grow out for a bit.

However, my goal is to decrease my unattractiveness. I sincerely doubt I would look more attractive with a long beard. I will be scampering over to a beardy guy next month to trim and shape it before international competition.

Different hair textures often require different treatment, and the requirements can change based on environmental conditions. Length, too.

OldSchool, welcome to the group! It is nice to make your acquaintance.

Length helps. Longer fur will still be coarse, but will become more manageable over time as it learns to go into the right directions. Congratulations, you're in one of several awkward stages of growth!

As for conditioning, there are myriad beard oils on the market, most comprised of a carrier oil with essential oils added for specific effects. My beard responds well to the offerings by Roughneck Beard, and I have been using their stuff for about a year.

But, to get you started quickly and cheaply I'll offer another suggestion. Go in your kitchen, look in the cupboard, and grab either coconut or extra virgin olive oil. Place a few drops on your palms, and rub your hands together to warm the oil. Then, apply it into your beard. The idea is not to make your beard oily, but to let the small amount absorb. It is a leave in conditioner. And, a majority of commercial beard oils use one of those two food oils as the base carrier oil, so you'll receive many of the benefits at significantly lower cost.

What is your intention? If it is to grow a long beard, like mine, do not trim anything more than individual unruly hairs. Keep it neat, but don't cut it off. Additional growth is required to get through the awkward stages.

Now that I've let my beard grow out a bit (individual hairs are between 1.5 and 2 inches), I have been pondering how to condition it. It certainly has a different texture than my standard fur. Much coarser even than my arm, chest, or stomach fur. Not sure my standard fur conditioner is sufficient. Also, don't know how to keep it from being unruly. I may just cut it all short again.

Hey All,

I've been a member here for over a year, but I've not commented much. I followed a link I got in my email that a comment had recently been made in this discussion, so I thought I'd check it out. I couldn't find the comment, but when I got here I did see that the pic I had uploaded was from when I first started growing my beard. So, given the group here, I had to upload a more recent pic to show that I do actually have a beard, not just stubble as in the previous pic (not that there's anything wrong with stubble, right?). LOL 

Hope you're all bearding strong and having a good 2015. I'll have to check in here more often, but we don't seem to have a lot of activity in the group overall. I wonder why that is. Your thoughts?
