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?

Well, chest hair really is up to the individual. I cannot grow chest hair so I'm stuff as Ryan gosling hahahaha

K. So what's the ideal beard length (if any) to attract the fairer sex? Is it like gut fur?

Welcome Dustin, good to have you! Sounds like you have quiet an impressive beard going.

Hello all!  I just joined, just wanted to say hi.  I've been growing a full beard for a few years now, it's about 12" long from bottom lip down. 

Comment by Clay on January 10, 2015 at 2:55pm

Thanks Brian and Rusty, yes first full beard and yes that was my thought too...May as well give it a try.

Comment by Mongoose on January 10, 2015 at 7:49am

Yea, like Brian said. Looks very natural. Value added.

Comment by Brian S on January 10, 2015 at 5:14am

Is this your first full beard? Looks very natural one you. Thing is, you never know till you grow one so you might as well try it.

First date: success not optional but mandatory

I have a date tomorrow night with a girl I met online. While this may sound like great news and the answer to lifelong joy, I want to make sure that this leads to a second date, and that I don't make a "death move" to end all chances of seeing her again. This is the early cultivation phase of a relationship, the kind of relationship I have been praying for , that leads to romantic love, marriage and procreation.  All of my experience with the few dating I have has been unsuccessfulSo, at this…See More
