I'm looking for suggestions for A] products that will help me make my new beard look less like a bush while I'm growing it & B] keep it under control once it's long enough to style.
The lesser problem I have at the moment is that the new growth isn't styled at all, because I'm not sure what to use. Some of the hairs are growing straight out, while some are curly. I'm going to try various hair styling products, but specific product recommendations (or other ideas, other than "shave") would be cool.
My main problem is what to do with my beard when it's long enough to style. I'd like to grow it long enough to plait or tie up or do other random stuff with, and I'm looking for ideas as to what to hold the entire affair together with. Again, suggestions are welcome as to what I could use. I'm pretty open to ideas as long as they're on the "manlier" end of the scale. I don't want to end up using one of these
