Ok, this is probably so gay, but anyone have some good advice for conditioner to use on my beard.  I have had it several years now, and keep it trimmed fairly short.  Lately however, the split ends are getting bad, becoming annoying to me and making it a little scratchy for my wife when she is trying to “Relax”

fwiw I shave the top of my head, so am pretty much starting from scratch here (and wife does not have any conditioner she will let me borrow)

I just use the same crap I use for my hair, which is whatever I buy.

My guess is that when your wife is "trying to relax", it aint split ends that are bugging her.

It's....................<drum roll please>.....................the beard itself.

It might be time to lose the beard all together.

How about a new look for the spring?

Beard was at her request, she especially liked the extra tingle caused by the mustache.  

Perhaps it is just a change in seasons, but for the most part she only mentioned scratching after I noticed an abmormally large amount of split ends and other odd kinks.  I have read if I grow it out longer it will nomrally become somewhat softer, but again, the split ends make that  harder to accomplish.

I've heard that coconut oil will soften a beard, but they do sell specific beard conditioners.  Google it and you will get some idea of what is out there.

That would be Herbal Essance  "I'll have what she's having."  I loved those commercials.

So pie juice ain't cutting it anymore.  Why don't you try something like mane and tail.

Seeing how the guys are soooo helpful. Hubby uses my Pantene shampoo W/conditioner. It's all in one.

Grow it out more. It's only prickly when it's short. I usually keep mine just a little longer than the
#10 fence on my clippers.

This is the conditioner I recommend for that thing!

Also you should comb/or brush it regulary too.

I use the same stuff my wife uses on her hair. I wash it with shampoo and then use her conditioner on it. YMMV.

I just comb out whatever crumbs my dog can't eat out of my beard.

Try Lever 2000 Soap with fortified Vitamin A E and Ginsing minerals.  I normally lather heavily with it 2-4 times and rinse while in the shower. It keeps my beard ultra clean and conditions the hair to a softer grade.

Also while washing with the vitamin soap try a pumice stone and rub the beard as many times as you lather and rinse.  It works very well for me in keeping the beard managable
