Most men probably live with a habit that hinders the growth of their beard, so be aware of the following tips to ensure that you end up with the mane you should have.
1. First and Foremost: Just Be Patient
Everyone`s facial hair grows in at different speeds, thicknesses, and ranges (all over your face, or perhaps just in the goatee area). There just isn`t a whole lot you can do to change this. The good news is that with a little patience (okay, sometimes a lot), most men can rock some style of facial hair. For some it`ll be a full beard, and for others it might just be a light goatee. No matter which style you choose (or choose), it can take a month or a year to achieve-it's all a matter of patience.
2. Sleep well, eat properly and exercise
Hair growth is promoted by several things related to your overall health and well-being. First, most hair growth occurs overnight when cell turnover peaks. If you don't rest and charge properly, your hair will not grow well. Another by-product of not resting is a decrease in blood flow. This means less nutrients reach the destination (hair follicles). Nutrient loss = impaired facial hair health and growth. Get 7-8 hours of sleep each night. Then the up-and-coming beard will thank you.
3. Nourish the lower skin
Happy hair comes out the warmest and fastest from the well-groomed skin below. You probably won't associate a men's kit with good skin care, but wash your face thoroughly every morning and night, exfoliate 12 times a week. Use our Beard Oil to moisturize your skin. Not only does it promote facial hair growth, it also improves your complexion! Win, win!
4. Maintain Your Beard
Once you have your beard the way you like it, maintain it with a regular beard grooming routine. Master barber, Thad Forrester recommends the following routine
- Wash it 2-3 times a week.
- Moisturize your beard with a Beard Oil after getting out of the shower
- Brush and shape beard daily
- Trim 1-3 times a week. Look for stray long hairs and keep things looking clean.
Growing a beard is really a very simple thing. Let it grow, keep it clean, have a healthy lifestyle. Don’t buy (either literally or metaphorically) any snake oil sales pitches about needing a regimen or supplements or one silver bullet to promote beard growth. Want your silver bullet? Wait for it to come in. That’s about it.
