    I'm not using beard balm yet. I'll need to look more into it. I tend to go the lazy route with my routines (I always have, even when I was growing my hair out), so I probably won't end up using more than just the beard butter and oil, but it's worth a shot to try it out at some point!

    I'm not taking any vitamins/supplements for hair growth either. I've tried them in the past and didn't notice a difference for me.

    Its the dr. Bronners that is drying out your beard. That stuff is extremely harsh.
    Look into some actual beard and face wash or use a gentle sulfate free shampoo.
    You keep using Dr.B and eventually your beard hairs will start breaking.

    Dr Bronners is pretty drying on the hair, is a very alkaline substance. I would use regular shampoo, which is pH balanced, but that's me. And I would not sleep on conditioner. Maybe see what that does for you?

    Thanks for letting me know! I'll definitely start looking into alternatives!

    It just amazes me that instead of thinking back to haircare and all I've learned here over the years, I just felt resigned to having a dry beard, haha.

    I put some leave-in conditioner I had laying around in my beard yesterday and it feels better. It'll feel even better on Friday when my oil arrives. I'm taking a cue from my head hair and what worked best for it and trying my old favorite, Africa's Best Ultimate Herbal Oil. I also ordered some beard wash and conditioner that should also be arriving on Friday, just in time for my Saturday wash!

    No you don't have to "accept" a dry beard! I've been following the channel "beardbrand", next to "Regal gentleman" and especially the first channel does a lot of beards besides haircuts (both channels I watch because mom cuts dad's hair and we need the info to do a good job).

    I've seen plenty of awesome products for beards, they are out there, but just a bit of regular conditioner even, putting that in, I mean you had a leave-in, but that will do too if you're short on product for styling!

    Good luck!!!

    Thanks so much!

    I also just watched this video which was great at explaining the differences and uses of various beard products, for anyone that's confused like I was!
