Taming a curly beard

OK, so I bit the bullet in November and grew my first proper beard beard. Always done stubble but never gone the distance and let it grow out before. Sadly for me my hair is very curly, and apparently my facial hair is no different.

Any tips on preventing protruding hairs? Is it just a case of combing it out of the shower and regularly trimming the more uncooperative hairs, or is there a prduct I can use to control the beard a bit more,preferably without making my face any greasier than it already gets?

I'm well aware that this might develop into a general beard appreciation thread, so if it does I'll amend the thread title.

Anyone else sport the most manly of secondary sexual characteristics? Opinions?

Hairspray? Personally I let my beard roam free after its regular trimming, although it generally behaves.

Deviate has yet to learn the way of the Dremel
My "goatee" is a full on unruly mess and is about 3 inches (so...about 75 mm?) from the bottom of my chin. My wife bought me a styling wax called Short Sexy Hair Control Maniac. It works ok, but it leaves it feeling kind of greasy and gross. It smells like grape though.

My morning routine is to get out of the shower (I don't wash the goatee with shampoo every day as it needs natural oils to stay somewhat calm) dry it as best as I can. Then I use a wide tooth comb and comb down through it and then back against the grain so it fluffs out all over the place. Then I dry it some more. I guess I could use a blow dryer...nah...too girly. Then I brush it back down with a semi-stiff bristled brush. I use the styling wax on particularly wild days, but I try not to use it more than two days in a row.

BTW, I haven't trimmed mine in over 7 months now. My wife is about to the point where she just wants it gone.

I just combed mine with a normal comb, but my hair isn't that curly.

Hair straighteners?

I'll probably keep it fairly neat for work purposes. I recently trimmed it from around 15mm. I'm only client facing a few times a year, but they are multi-million pound clients and a giant face-rug might scare them away.

I wish I could grow a proper beard.

I've tried, but it just looks awful.

No bear beard for me

If you fight through the itching for about a month it goes away. You have to be determined

Seems legit.

I'll tone the creep down.....just a little.

My other half uses a hairdryer and a comb for his. Seems to work pretty well and his hair is (or was) curly. Straight out the shower and combs it through.
