Beads in beard, mustache wax?

Posted by Clare (My Page) on

I want to cornrow beads into someone's beard, but need to use something dense and sticky to make the hairs stick together. Otherwise, I don't think I can thread the beads on. Is there something better than mustache wax I could use? Products like bergamot petroleum jelly are not sticky enough for this beard. And ideally it would be something that would wash out.

Ideas?

Curious minds need to know......why does this person with a beard want beaded corn rows? Is it for an occasion? Don't want to offend, just very curious and trying to get a picture in my mind, I just find it an interesting concept.

You might try dreads and braiding forums.

:) what, you don't think that Captian Jack Sparrow used anything but natural walrus blubber, do you?

what you're looking for is a 'wax' pomade. everyone makes them, nowadays- got2B, paul mitchel, LA looks... they come in tins, and do a pretty good job of it, though they can be a pest to get out.

honestly- if his beard's unruly enough that you're having problems- I'd consider getting a fake one, beading that, and applying it over his shaven face ;)

(but then, I can get my own hairy-scary to do things like that. then again- my hairy-scary can braid and bead his own hair ;)

Walrus blubber, of course! What was I thinking?!

Woodie, no occasion, just everyday life.

Chinacat, I like your sense of humor. I looked at some of the waxy products in the store, but was waiting to hear back from someone here before trying one. Guess I'll go ahead and grab one.
