Although your genetics play a role in how quickly your beard will grow as well as how thick it will ultimately become, there are things that you can do to help the process. However, it takes patience and perseverance when attempting to help your beard grow. Fortunately, following the right regimen can help almost anyone quickly and naturally grow the beard they were meant to have.
1. Wash your face
Perhaps one of the most important steps in helping your beard to grow faster is keeping your face clean. Washing your face on a regular basis will remove the dirt and oil that can block hair follicles. Once your follicles are clear of dirt and oil, your beard will be able to grow more easily. To keep your hair follicles clear, it is recommended that you wash your face twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening.
If you have not yet started your beard, you should wet your face with warm water and massage in a gentle cleanser designed specifically for the face. Warm water will open the follicles, allowing them to be thoroughly cleansed. However, before you use the cleanser, you should test it to determine if it is appropriate for your skin type. To do this, you can simply apply a tiny amount on your chin. Wait for ten minutes. If the cleanser does not irritate your skin, you can then wash your face with the cleanser. You should be sure to massage the cleanser into your skin.
Once your beard begins to come in, you can use a mild shampoo and warm water directly on your incoming beard. When rinsing, you should use cool, clean water. Cool water will help to close the follicles which will protect them from becoming clogged. Once your face is thoroughly rinsed, you should gently pat your face dry with a clean, soft towel.
To further help stimulate hair growth, you should utilize an exfoliant once a week. This will help remove dead skin cells that may be blocking new hair growth.
A poor diet leads to poor health, and poor health can directly affect the condition of your facial hair. Eating a well-balanced diet is an extremely important part of growing a healthy, full beard. You should make sure to eat healthy protein as it is an excellent source of nutrients your beard needs to grow. The best protein for your beard is plant-based and includes the following foods:
- kidney beans
- black beans
In addition to protein, to help your beard grow faster, you should also incorporate fruits into your daily diet. You should be sure to include the following.
You can even include nuts for some variety.
Just as stress contributes to the development of a variety of health issues, it is also the main contributor to slowed hair growth as well as hair loss. A great way to reduce stress is through daily exercise, which also helps relieve stress.
In addition to reducing stress, exercise helps grow your beard as you sleep. This is because the hormone testosterone is an important part of your ability to grow a beard, and most of your body’s testosterone is produced while you sleep. As such, it is recommended that you get between 7 and 10 hours of sleep per night.
Taking the right beard & hair vitamins and supplements can help to promote faster beard growth. However, it is important to understand vitamins and supplements can help your beard to grow only if your genetics predisposed you to the ability to grow a full, thick beard.
Some recommended vitamins and supplements that may help your beard grow faster include vitamins E, B5, and C. You may also want to try biotin or niacin.
5. Hands off
The process of growing a full, thick beard takes time. In fact, probably one of the main reasons many men struggle when trying to quickly grow a beard is that they give up just as they are beginning to make some real progress. This giving-up point is typically when it starts to itch. Although it is uncomfortable, the only way to grow your beard quickly is to get through this period without giving in and shaving. Once your hair softens, the itching will subside.
