I am really happy with my beard at the moment...but it's so rough! I was wondering what I could do to soften it. The only thing I've thought of would be using hair conditioner on it. Is there a better way?

Hey, Just started growing myself. I recommend beards.org for more info. From what ive heard what youre doing is good and letting the beard grow out a little more helps. ie ever shaved your head and noticed how spiky it is? then once its started to grow how progressively smoother it gets?
I agree, the longer you let it get the softer it is, at least that's what my wife says.
See, that's what I thought too, but my beard is about one and a half inches long now, it's it's just wiry and rough. Any other ideas?
I read somewhere (beards.org?) that you should always use the same shampoo and conditioner that you use on your head on your beard. That's kept my beard fairly soft. Granted, my beard hairs are significantly thicker and more wiry than my head hairs, but it tends to work alright. I usually trim it with a guard one or two, and it stays rather soft. (of course it's a lot softer when it's longer.) Don't be afraid to run a comb through it every once in a while too.
I think thats where i got my info from and so far it seems to be working. Just give it time.
