So, here's my secret to my dandruff free, non-itchy, shiny, soft, and touchable beard. Dove Men +Care 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner. About $3.00 a bottle at Wal-Mart versus the $12.00 and up beard balms and oils. Beard oils may work better, I honestly don't know, but if you're on a budget then you should know this stuff works great on head and beard.
