Beard control!

1703 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Matilda's mommy
Hey guys, how do you guys keep the beard all nice and neat? Whenever twinkle sleeps or lays down it gets all messy and sticks up. I am only asking because the hairs are poking her eyes and making her tear. I though cutting it shorter would help but that just made it so the hairs would poke straight in her eyes. Do you guys have this problem too?

A little cream conditioner (kolestral, vellus) or gel can help. You can also band the facial furnishings. I always just lay the hair back and have never really thought twice about it.
I think it's easier to just let the hair grow longer so it won't poke into the eyes, it's a pain to grow but once it's's so much easier. When I was growing bisou's hair out, I bought some dog hair gel but didn't end up using much of it and just let it grow.
Yes, did the dab of hair gel thing a time or two...just til it grew out enough to lay down. Just hang in there for a few weeks to a couple mos and this too shall pass. Just use a bit of gel to train it down flat if it's really a pain in the interim.
I love your pictures what a precious little fluff:wub:
I just started using gel I bought at Walmart its called "got2b"
I really like it, I am able to comb through Matilda's hair very easily. I was worried it would be to stiff, this isn't. Holds just enough.
