Brush your beard
Before you grab the oils or conditioners, get yourself a proper beard brush. Mountaineer's Beard Brush made from boar bristles, works to distribute naturally occurring oils throughout your hair, softening them and allowing you to manipulate the direction the hair lays. "The best way to maintain a beard's shape is by brushing and combing," agrees Hugo Hernandez, master barber at The Art of Shaving. "Brushes especially help with hair direction."
