Have a beard, mustache, goatee, soul patch or even a fancy Edwardian lamb chop-mustache combo? The Louisiana Beard & Facial Hair Association wants you.

Founded by Jason Leonard, the group started a Facebook page last week and is reaching out for new members, offering T-shirts (for sale) and even common-sense tips on keeping one’s flocculent face fancy and fret-free:
Soap, conditioner, brushes, and oils help keep that sucker looking good.

One thing I use daily is organic coconut oil. I found this brand at Target, next to the olive oil. Every morning after I shower, and removing most of the water with a towel, I apply this to my beard before I blow-dry. Yes, blow-dry. Avoid high heat, which can damage your hair. A blow-dryer with a low, medium, high setting works best. This coconut oil feels like wax, but quickly melts when applied to your hands. I rub between my hands and massage into my beard. Keeps it shinny, healthy, and I smell like a Caribbean plate lunch all day (a good thing).

The oil solidifies when the house is cool, but is very soft as the house warms. Very easy to melt with your hands.
