I had a pretty big beard at one point until till I cleared out of a turn into a yellow jacket nest and my face got enveloped by those fuckers.

Maybe that's one of the new 'scented' beard oils they should offer instead of 'Forrest blend' or whatever....

Doing some reading, the letter kind not the picture kind, beards draw moisture from the skin which causes beardruff, which I get kind of bad.

Iíve used a leave in oil for hair that was meh. Iíve tried two different balms. IME they donít smell great but they do work. I wish I could find one that was just ďnormalĒ. Instead I can choose a balm that was used by the ancient Lumberjack Viking Spartans thatís guaranteed to vanquish my enemies just from the superior smell of said balm... Iíd rather just be a dude who wants a soft beard and no beardruff.

The cadre said they protected that DVD before they gave it out. At least everyone now knows the truth about the Q course.

Beard butter or root oil. It all sounds the same to me but what do I know I was in the Navy.

Thank you for your understanding kind Sir.

Now...about those assless chaps you wanted me to send you. Was that super-urgent, or can it wait a week? I have a date you see...

I was going to post that. Then I thought it was over the top, even for me.

Cool! Thanks bro.

After I retired I totally let myself go for about 6 months. One day I looked in the mirror and said... "1RiserSlip, you gotta get your shit together bro".

I get the beardruff...so I admittedly use some stuff to prevent it. I've tried the oil shit, but never really worked for me.

TeaTree Hair Shit works very well. I throw some in the hair and beard when I get out of the shower. It's basically just a leave-in conditioner. No more beardruff though.
