Facial hair seemed to be an all or nothing deal before:  you were either clean-shaven or you weren’t, and you usually stuck with it for a long time.  Now, we have the option of choosing either or and have it be fashionable as well as something we want, but not all beards are created equal, so here are a few tips for fixing up patchiness for those who want to rock the beard.

Here’s a tip that often evades the people who are trying to grow a beard for the first time:

Brush it

Sounds a little strange, but if your facial hair tends to be unruly then give it a good brushing (or use a comb) to control the direction of growth. It’s not necessary to go all Marcia Brady on it and give it 100 strokes before bed but just enough to even things out and fill in the not-so-dense areas. Tip: Go against the grain for a fuller effect. Don’t forget to use conditioner, and avoid using shampoo that often — it may dry things out and leave it brittle. You need to treat your facial hair well because it’s just as important as the hair on your head.
