Ok, now that I'm starting to slowly encroach on my beard's longest growth length ever 6 weeks plus with in the week there's been an increasing number of hairs in my beard that have split ends. I find this quite weird, since I comb and wash my beard often. I comb 2 to 3 times a day, and wash it approximately 2 to 3 times a week with a mild shampoo, the same I use for my head hair. I don't put anything else in my beard, nor do I do anything else with it, besides the occasional plucking of a hair or 2 if I'm not paying attention and set into a soothing mood. Still I do think any of this would support my getting split ends, especially at such a young age for my beard, just a little over a month. Anything I can do about them, or do I just have to live with them and leave them be?
