Beards are making a comeback over the last decade so you will easily notice why more and more men are sporting them. You might have tried growing one yourself, but been frustrated that it hasn’t come in fuller and faster as you expect it to be.
Sadly, no secret tonic or formula can make your hair grow thicker or fuller. If you don’t have it in your genes, then your dream beard will not happen. The same way that your hair colour is determined by your DNA, the same thing goes with your facial hair growing patterns and propensities. Stop dreaming that your hair will magically change its colour overnight and neither will your beard suddenly sprout even if you are on your mid 30’s even if you don’t see so much hair on your chin.
But there are a few things that you can do to slightly accelerate the growth of your facial hair and at the same time promote the health of your facial hair to achieve the nice luxurious look you are aiming for. Here are some of them:
Just Be Patient
Just like in our hair, everyone’s facial hair grows in at different ranges, thickness and speed and unfortunately, there is not a whole lot that you can do about it. The good news is that, with a little or a lot of patience, most men can rock the style they want for their facial hair. Depending on the style that you want to go to, say a full beard or a goatee, it might take a month or on some cases, a year. In the end, it is all about patience.
If it is your first time to grow a beard, avoid touching the thing every now and then as it will likely be uneven and itchy for a while but that’s okay. You can deal with it for a while.
Sleep Well, Exercise and Eat Right
The growth of your hair is surprisingly promoted by a few things that relate to a person’s general health and well-being. Most of the hair-growing happens when the cellular turnover is at its peak, in other words, overnight. And if you are not resting or re-charging properly, then your hair won’t grow as well as it should. To put it simply, the less nutrients your body has, the more that you compromised your health and so is the growth of your facial hair.
In addition to getting plenty of zzzz’s, exercising regularly and eating a balanced diet of proteins, veggies, whole grains, fats, etc. will also enhance your hair’s growth rate and health.
Take Care of the Skin Underneath
A well-cared skin results in a happy hair whether you like it or not. You probably don’t associate the male set with good skin care, but adopt a routine of washing your face well each morning and night, exfoliating 1-2 times per week and regularly using a moisturizer for beard(your favourite lotion will do) to keep your skin hydrated. Not only will it encourage facial hair growth, but your complexion will improve too! Win- Win!
