Do any of you guys add any sort of product to your beard to make it unruly? Or is that with just proper trimming and grooming?
Ok, I'm just curious because of Jeremy's beard. He really is very lazy and grooming it and I tried adding the straightening cream I put in my hair along with using my flat iron. I'll just tell him to stop being lazy and groom his shit.
What do you guys use for beard dandriff?
I use this beard trimmer. It kinda sucks, but it gets the job done.Remington MB-200 Titanium Mustache and Beard Trimmer

For my head I actually have all of the following equipment. It's amazing. Seems expensive, but it's already paid for itself if you compare it to the price of going to the barber shop.
Oster 76076-010 Classic 76 Professional Hair Clipper
Oster Ac T-finisher Trimmer # 59-01
Oster Professional 10 Universal Comb Set Specially Designed to Fit Oster Clippers
Basically what I do is I use the 000 blade like a lawnmower all over. Then I go with the t-finisher around the ears and to level the sideburns and such. They make a 0000 and 00000 blades, which I've considered, but they aren't really necessary. When I shaved my head for the first time I used the combs to gradually get shorter and shorter. I don't use them now, but they can come in handy maybe if I have to use it on someone else.
The other thing is that this serious equipment actually requires maintenance. You have to lubricated it and clean it and such. There are some great YouTube videos that can show you everything.
As Scott says, you should clean and maintain them, but the cheap ones are sometimes impossible to clean and lubricate, and if you can get into it, it's probably made of plastic and will break after a few cleans.
Spend the money on quality. You don't only save money and hassle in the long run compared to paying for hair cuts, but you also save money and hassle compared to buying a series of progressively less-shit clippers until you settle on the good quality one you should have bought in the first place.
The smallest trim guard did break at one point but I've been shaving my own head since I was a barracks barber. As long as you have a good mirror setup you can do more than just toss a 1/2" guard on and go to town.
I also recommend using a vacuum to clean the hair bits off of your head.
