It's a bit pricey but I've been through about a dozen brands and this is my favourite so far. Also just in general never ever use 'beard shampoo', all it does is dry it out. You actually want your natural oils to stay in your beard, a pea size blob of regular conditioner every other shower keeps it nice and silky though.
Mine didn't really start to perform until I got into my forties. Until then my beard growth was kind of patchy and inconsistent. Now it's nice and strong. If you aren't in your forties yet, don't give up hope. :)
Oh, and I use Honest Amish Beard Balm (Amazon), a hair dryer, and a round brush. Trust me... it doesn't just lay like that.
Beard balm or oil will make a huge difference! Everyone's skin/hair is a little different so you might have to try a few different kinds until you find the one that works best for him. This one is a good quality for the price. [link]
Even though I don't grow my beard out I sometimes look at products for it on Amazon.
I would try this. link
I use two of them, one of them is Honest Amish Beard Balm, i can't remember the name of other one I use since we recently redid the house and moved stuff around, but ill see if i can find it.
Mine is fairly curly as well. After a shower, I towel dry it, rub some balm in and then comb/shape it. The balm helps straighten it a bit.
This is what I use:
I also use Honest Amish Beard Balm ([link]). It makes your beard considerably softer and all you do is massage it into your damp beard after you wash it.
It's not rude to ask questions :)
I looked on Amazon at the Honest Amish Beard Balm, and using this one as an example, I'll try to answer your questions sufficiently.
There is a $2.55 difference between the two products. There is also a difference in the ingredients. They actually make a Beard Wax, and a Beard Balm. The balm being the one I'm referencing. It has no wax in it. It is just for conditioning. Their wax is mainly for hold with some conditioning properties. My balm is actually a mix of the two. Wax for hold, and butters and oils for conditioning. So, more ingredients, and I also offer more scents. HA only has one scent. It works for them, so more power to them. HA also makes bigger batches for their Amazon business, whereas I make much smaller batches daily.
I don't have plans on listing with Amazon - at least, not at this time. There are a lot of "hoops" to jump through. I'm doing fine with just selling from my website. I do advertise on Amazon, but that's different.
I hope this answers your questions. If not, let me know.
I really like Honest Amish Beard Balm Conditioner., Transfer, Pa
It has a really great smell that isn't overbearing and fades in a hour or so.
Best stuff I've ever used...

Is conditioner the same thing as softener? I always see people say that you can use it everyday unlike shampoo but maybe i am mixing 2 different things up.
This for example is an Honest Amish leave-in conditioner. Correct me if I'm wrong but it acts as both a butter for day/night and as a softener so can i get it instead 2 seperate products?

Thanks, I usually trim every 3-4 weeks starting down at a short scruff and then letting it get a little thick. I currently don't shampoo it , i do use a facewash on it though. [link]
This is the beard balm that i used from Honest Amish and it's amplified my issued a bit: [link]
i'll try some of the oils that you've recommended, thank you i appreciate it.
The first stuff I ever used was Honest Amish and it's fine. Then, I graduated to Smoky Mountain Beard Co.. Nate, the founder, is a Redditor and this sub is where I heard about his products. It's really good stuff. However, I've recently started making my own. Making your own oil is pricey up front but if you're going to have a beard for a good while, it's much cheaper in the long run. It's easy to make and you can find tons of recipes online.
*Edit: TL;DR - I would recommend a sampler, to start. That way, you can get an idea of what you like before investing too much into a particular scent. Be sure to get yourself a boar bristle brush too, if you don't have one. Beard well, my friend! :)
Look into beard conditioner. I use this.
I've been struggling lately pulling out my eyebrows too. I've found for me that using Honest Amish a Beard balm my husband uses helps regrowth. And soothes growing hair. When get an urge I hurry and apply Vaseline to my eyebrows so they are slippery and harder to pull out. I use Beard oil on my eyebrows when I get an urge and it helps regrowth. I also apply it before I color in the patches I've managed to pull out. I keep a Koosh ball on my desk at work to play with when I feel any urge to pull hair at work. I also use pull apart fidget toy at home.
Best thing i can suggest is find out what your triggers are. When you tend to pull hair out. Mine is when I mindlessly pull my hair when I read or when I get really stressed. Sometimes I don't even realize I'm doing it. I plan to visit a salon and get my eyebrows shaped as a reward once they grow in. Meantime I remind myself it's hair and will grow back. :) If anything longterm I might consider cosmetic makeup to cover the patches and shape my eyebrows when they are sparse. Keep your options open. If you discover anything helps you please share! You aren't alone with this!

This: Honest Amish Beard Balm
I have the same thing, If I don't put some in just about every day it get's dry and itchy.
Honest Amish is fantastic stuff.
This will be all but a memory.
I really like Honest Amish. I use the beard balm after the shower, and then the beard oil after I brush my teeth and re-wet my beard. In the shower I use Professor Fuzzworthy's shampoo bar. All available on Amazon.
That's exactly how mine behaves once it starts getting a little bit of length. So it sounds like I'll probably benefit most from a good balm and daily brushing. Any recommendations? I was looking at the Honest Amish Beard Balm, or would I have better luck with a wax? I'd like some level of control but I don't want it feeling hard.
I've only had the beard for some number of months now. I've been using "Honest Amish" brand. There might be better brands out there, but it got good reviews on Amazon and it has worked just fine for me.
It has a faint licorice scent.
I use a pea-sized dab of the balm and emulsify it in my palm, then work it through my beard when it is still slightly damp. Then just a tiny bit of the wax on the moustache, after warming it between the fingers. The tin is seriously like a lifetime supply.
The wax isn't a true mustache wax that hardens, but I find it suits my needs. Additionally, you could use it on the beard itself to tame any strays.
Before you trim, try getting some beard conditioner and combing it a little. Make it a little more kempt and see if he likes that.
This stuff has a nice smell and works pretty well. I put it in after a shower, and my beard isn't even as long as yours.
Blessed Beard Balm Brother!
Honest Amish Beard Balm
I have a relatively sizable beard, and I've tried different oils, waxes, and balms...and this is by far my favorite product. Helps keep the beard moisturized and tamed, skin moisturized, and smells good.
