How to Grow a Beard & Stimulate Growth

People without facial hair might think that growing a beard is easy. Hair just grows naturally after all, and finding the right style and shape should be natural too, right? But anyone who has tried growing a beard can tell you it’s not always straightforward. There are some steps you can take to make the process a little smoother and ensure that when your beard does come in, it’s the best beard it can be. Try these beard growing tips. 

 

Everyone wants to hear the easy steps to growing a luscious beard, but there are no easy steps to having the lumberjack look in merely days. You can’t magically increase your testosterone production and suddenly have a full beard. A big part in knowing how to grow a healthy beard is having the patience to let it grow.

 

Grooming starts on day one. Not only will you want to use a natural oil to help the initial growth phase, you’ll want to make sure you have all the tools you need. An electric shaver, a beard trimmer (or beard scissors if you prefer), and beard care products—think things like balms, a comb, beard wash, shampoo, coconut oil, and other men’s grooming weapons you will want to use.

Step 1: So, you’ve started growing a beard

Wash your beard regularly. In the beginning there’s not a lot you can control about your beard, but you can keep it clean and moisturised. Use specialised moisturisers and oils that are designed for faces and beards to create the right foundation. These probably won’t speed up growth, but it will help keep the beard looking good and healthy when it comes in. Reducing stress promotes growth, while exercise promotes blood flow which made expediate the process.

Step 2: Beard growing tips
While your beard grows in, you can trim any unwanted hair away. This means tidying up your neck —no one wants scraggly neck beard hair. This is not only good practice for when your beard grows, it also helps enhance the look of the hair that’s already there by creating contrast. Regularly comb your beard to stimulate the hair follicles and draw the natural oils produced by your skin down the length of the hair. Massaging and moisturising can also encourage growth.

Step 3: Keep the beard looking good
After many weeks, your beard should be on its way; that means it’s time to start tidying it up. It might feel counter-productive to cut any beard hair you have, but you’ll want to give it a bit of a trim. Most beard and moustache hair grow at different rates, so an electric trimmer will help keep it uniform. Clean and moisturise your facial skin for healthy hair growth.

Step 4: Define the type of beard style and shape
By now, your beard should be coming in nicely, but you’re not done yet - it’s time to define the beard. It’s common for a few hairs to grow on your cheeks—a little higher than your beard really should sit. Create a clean cheek line by shaving those extra areas regularly. The same goes for any stray neck hairs, ensure to tidy up below the Adam’s apple. 

Shaving is a hot bathroom or during the heat of the day can make razor burn worse. Try shaving in the evening to give irritable skin a chance to recover overnight.
Step 5: Personalise the style and shape of your beard
Finally, you have a beard! It might have taken longer than you thought, or maybe it grew easily. Now it’s time to decide what shape you want and keep up the maintenance. Try different styling methods until you find your favourite. Maybe you like putting some moustache wax in there for a dynamic shape, maybe you have some patchiness and you want to let it grow out longer to cover that.

Growing a beard requires patience—there’s no way to rush the process, but you can take steps to make sure your beard looks good throughout its lifetime.

 

How long it takes to grow a beard can vary from person to person and there’s nothing you can do to rush the process. Do your best to create a healthy beard: regularly comb, use natural oils to moisturise, shape it to help it look fuller, and take care of your body to keep all your hair healthy.
