GROWING YOUR BEARD...
Growing a Beard
Growing a beard can be one of life’s secret joys; even a token accomplishment. Not all men find it easy to grow plums of facial hair, but there are a few things you can do to help. While the rate and thickness of growth you produce will be dependent on your age and genetics, one thing all men lack is patience. This is how many men come to ask for advice on how to make your beard grow faster, as no one enjoys the itchy, fuzzy growing in phase.
So, if you are looking to get into the beard scene, here are a few tips to share to help you look and feel like a pro in no time!
1. Give Your Beard the Tools to Grow
I always thought growing a beard was... well, just don't shave. We may not think about it, but a diet high in protein, with less stress and more sleep, can help you grow a faster beard. Stress is one big factor in hair loss and will reverse the effects in men of any age. Protein gives your body the right nutrients to grow more hair, and sleep is the necessary time to put it all into place. Even drinking the recommended eight glasses of water a day will help keep the growth thick and healthy.
Biotin is a natural hair growth supplement that you can take to help improve hair quality and growth. This is especially helpful in men who suffer from thin, patchy beards. Biotin contains vitamins B6, C, and E, which will help keep your hair and skin in top shape. The downside to this supplement is that hair and nails are much alike, and accelerated nails and other bodily hair are likely to grow just as fast. So make sure you can deal with this potential before going forward.
2. Commit to Growing a Beard
The next problem men face when trying to grow a beard faster is unreasonable expectations. It is almost impossible to wake up one morning with a fully-fledged beard, but you'll begin to see growth over a few days. I know you'll be tempted to shave it all off, remember that it will take time and that you are taking steps in the right downward direction. Most men move out of the itchy, growing in phase by the end of the week, so focus on something else and it will arrive faster.
3. Work With the Facial Hair You Have
Just because the beard is not super long yet, or where you want it to be, does not mean you can’t enjoy the growth that you have. Have fun with each new growth phase and test out new styles, and enjoy growing from stubble into substantial growth. Keeping the beard trim is also a great technique for creating the appearance of thicker, fuller hair. Long, straggly hair is not going to look good on anyone.
