I have been growing my beard for some time now, and I'm quite happy with it, but it's at a stage where it can be a nuiscance at times. I really don't want to tie down my beard or use any stiff harsh gels in my beard. I want to keep with the free loose flowing beard image, but I want to look clean and neat. I was thinking about buying some amla oil for my hair, but then I started to wonder if I should use it in my beard as well, to keep my beard soft and the skin underneath moisturized. Secondly, I heard that using bee's wax in ones beard helps to keep the beard neat and properly shaped without making it stiff and unmovable, I also hear that it helps retain moisture and gives a nice gloss to the beard. I also was considering using bee's wax to hold my mustache in place, but I've heard mixed reviews about how well it holds, I want something relatively inexpensive and simple so I thought bee's wax may work. I was wondering if anyone could confirm my thoughts from experiance.
