Looking to grow beard faster? Not all men find it easy to grow plums of facial hair. There are few things that can help, even though the rate and thickness of growth you produce will be dependent on your age and genetics. One thing is you must have is patience. Beard can be an accomplishment to some men but if you don’t have yet, here’s what to do.
1. Taking Care of Your Body
It might sound obvious, but a diet high in protein, with less stress and more sleep can help you grow a faster beard. Stress is one of the contributing factors of 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.
Exercising will improve the circulation of the blood in the body, which will help to promote facial hair growth. Use an exfoliant or scrub once a week to remove the dead cells on the face. This will help stimulate the growth of new hair.Try to make it a point each day to keep the face as clean as possible, rinsing with warm water and mild soap at least each morning and evening.
2. Minerals and Vitamins
In addition to eating better, you can help your beard grow faster by supplementing your diet with the appropriate minerals and vitamins. Talk with your physician about taking at least 2 mg of biotin each day. This supplement is available in health food and vitamin stores, and will help to increase both the growth of your nails and your facial hair.
Start to incorporate more vegetables and fruits in your diet, they are rich in the minerals and vitamins that the hair needs in order to grow more rapidly. Without the appropriate nutrients in your body, you begin to slow down the production of the hair. Look into increasing your daily intake of vitamin B6, beta-carotene, vitamin C, flax seed oil, vitamin E, and nettle.
3. 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 full beard, but you can begin to see growth over a few days. When tempted to shave it all off, remember that it will take time and that you are taking active 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.
4. Work With Your Beard
One of the things that you need to understand in your efforts to grow a beard quickly is that the facial hair is not like the hair on your head. When you start growing your beard, the hairs simply will not fill in every single spot on the face where the beard will be.
No matter how hard you try, there are going to be small areas that hair simply won’t grow, so the only way to work around this issue is to let the beard grow long enough that it fills in and hides any bare spots that you may have.
5. Leaving the Beard Alone
During the first month of trying to grow your beard, you are going to find it looks like a wild forest growing on your face. This is when you are going to want to trim it up and start shaping it to look cleaner. As difficult as it will be during these first few weeks, you have to resist the urge to do any grooming whatsoever of the hair.
Don’t trim, don’t shape, and don’t cut any of the hairs in the beard. As difficult as this might be to understand, the beard is going to grow faster if you can simply leave it alone. Once you reach the 4 – 6 week mark, then you can begin to shape and clean up the region as much as you like. Forget the old tale about trimming the hair makes it grow thicker and darker and faster. You’re being trolled.
6. Keep Your Facial Hair in Good Condition
Once you have grown your beard, keeping it in top condition will prevent the need to trim if off and start again. Castor oil is a great conditioning treatment that promotes hair growth, and will keep your beard moving in the right direction. Apply castor oil at night before you go to bed (a towel will help prevent staining), and wash off in the morning. Keep doing this until the hair grows successfully.
