    I keep my beard trimmed close with a barber clipper. I'm not messing with any oil.

    I did, at first, too.
    But this stuff makes having a beard comfortable. For me, in the past , it's always come to a point where I was like "I gotta get this dry sagebrush off my face".

    I can see this changing that

    I haven't had good luck with beard oil, but I really like the balm. Most companies will make the same formula of the oil available as a balm. I go for something with a mild scent. It really just keeps you from being itchy, and keeps the beard hydrated.

    Can't grow a beard to save my life. Little clumps located in several spots. Goatee/Van Dyke is about all I can put together, and it's nothing to brag about.
    Four of my five son's can do a beard, thanks to the generous donation of genetic material from their mothers. Laura was German/Austrian, and Marjorie a Scot. Only my oldest got the bad beard from Dad.
    One of my son's actually is a dealer of beard oils. Kind of like the Avon Lady of facial hair. He modeled some glitter stuff with frankincense for the recent holiday.

    I love the stuff, its a game changer if you've got a longer beard. I'm sure it would be good for a neatly trimmed beard too, but its really great if you've got the mountain man/ZZ top thing going on. I used coconut oil for a while but my wife got me a sample set of beard oil a couple of years ago and aside from hating one of the scents I found myself liking it a lot. I've gone back and forth between the oil and the balm, both are good. I've been using the balm lately but maybe I'll try the oil again when it runs out.

    I remember there used to be a trimmer available called the Miami DeVice, for that Don Johnson look :p

    My lovely wife bought me some for Xmas. I was a denier for a long time, but I gotta say...it's nice. Softens the whiskers, smells good, and definitely cuts down the "beardruff".

    My beard doesn't bother me too much and my girlfriend doesn't complain, so I'm pretty low maintenance.
    Sometimes I will lather up with shaving cream, let it sit for a few minutes, then take a shower. Softens it up for a while, anyway. And it smells good.

    Oh crap!

    I've had a beard for over 40 years, nobody told me I was supposed to oil it!

    So that's why it turned white?

    I just use whatever I have in my hands: Aveeno moisturizer, Nutrogena face balm, cheeseburger, fried chicken grease, hair conditioner, pomade, it’s all good. I tried a little anchovy paste once. That didn’t work out too well.

    My beard gets super dry, especially in the winter. Beard oil helped with that, but now I'm using a beard cream that I like better. My dad uses some kind of beard wax that he really likes --I'm going to try that when the beard cream runs out.

    I always kept my beard trimmed close when I was working, and I've had a beard most of my adult life. I hate shaving, obviously. Most of that time there hadn't been too many beard products around. Since retiring, and since beards have become trendy again, I've let it grow out longer. I just keep it clean, spritz it with water every day and massage that in (cuts down the dandruff) and shampoo it with Head and Shoulders when I wash my hair. It seems to work for me.

    I use a balm I get at the barber shop, it really helps. Especially, when I start the beard over after shaving it off which I do every so often. Then when it gets long enough I use the same Ruezel pomade for my hair in my beard to keep it shaped up.

    Fried chicken and spare ribs work fine for me.

    That was my first thought as well.
