Without going into detail about what I do for a living, the job I've had for years is often a bit easier if a man is not shaven so I'm now about a month into a full beard. So far so good, the itch stage has passed and now comes dealing with wild curly hairs as they begin to gain length. They'll straighten out eventually but for now they're a minor annoyance. Most of the beard products out on the shelves strike me as overpriced simple ingredients where you're really paying for packaging (as is the way with many products) so today I bought a small tub of Blue Cross coconut oil cream at Dollar Tree. I've slathered it on a few times today and it's already making a difference. The stuff feels good and stays put but I reek of coconut. Doesn't bother me but others might be bugged by it. It smells much stronger than the coconut oil I keep in the kitchen but that stuff would won't work -- even a little would be way too oily and runny in this Florida heat. Those of you bearded or ex-bearded, what inexpensive products have you found help tame and nourish whiskers? Thanks in advance.
