From one bearded man to another, I know the journey we undertake when we decide to grow a beard. It's a process filled with frustrations and pride, requiring commitment and care. I've walked this path and am here to share the wisdom I've gathered along the way. Here are my best beard growth tips every bearded man should know.
My 10 Best Beard Growth Tips
1. Patience. The Most Overlooked Aspect
Growing a beard is a marathon, not a sprint. In the early weeks, your beard might resemble the barren landscape of a desert, but give it time. Your beard will fill in and thicken, rewarding your patience. On average, it grows at 1.25cm per month. Take a selfie in the same lighting at the end of every month and watch the growth. You will only be disappointed if you expect to see results every day. To read more about this, CLICK HERE
2. Know Your Beard, Know Yourself
Every beard is unique, and understanding the nuances of your facial hair is a game-changer. Observe your beard’s growth pattern, density, and the areas it fills quickly or slowly. Knowing your beard will help you find a style that complements your facial features.
3. Tools. Your Beard's Best Friends
The right tools can take you from scruffy to polished. Invest in a quality boar bristle beard brush to evenly distribute the products for the best performance and to add volume. A wide-toothed comb will detangle the snags in long beard hair, and a fine-toothed comb will guide your moustache hairs to the sides of your mouth so you can eat with flossing with moustache hair. This gear will make your beard journey infinitely more manageable.
4. Master the Art of Trimming
Regular trims are your beard's secret weapon. They eliminate split ends, maintain the shape of your beard, and accommodate healthier growth. Even if you're going for a more extended look, a light trim can keep your beard looking its best. Visit a good beard barber for a shape up if you are uncomfortable doing it yourself.
5. A Decent Beard Oil
A quality beard oil, like Braw Beard oil is a game-changer. It moisturises the skin beneath your beard, reduces itchiness, and makes it softer and more manageable. I apply beard oil daily after showering - it's a ritual that your beard will thank you for.
6. The Moustache
The moustache isn't just an extension of your beard; it's a critical part of your facial hair ensemble. Keep it neat with regular trims, and consider using moustache wax to maintain its style and shape. Personally I use Braw Beard butter and a brush to guide it away from my mouth.
7. Hygiene: Clean Beard, Clear Mind
Your beard needs regular cleaning. A gentle shampoo, like Braw Beard Wash, 3-4 times a week will free your beard from dirt, dead skin cells, and excess oil, leaving it fresh and healthy. Afterwards, use Braw Beard oil to keep your beard soft and moisturised.
8. Fuel Your Beard
A healthy diet equals a healthy beard. Eat foods rich in vitamins like B3, B5, and B9, and don’t forget about proteins, fruits, and vegetables. Hydration is also vital for skin health, so drink plenty of water.
9. Tame the Beast
Regular brushing can train your beard to grow in your desired direction. It also helps distribute the oils evenly across your beard, ensuring every hair gets nourished.
10. Style It Right
As your beard grows, experiment with styles that suit your face shape and beard's growth pattern. It's a process of trial and error, but when you find a style that works, it's incredibly satisfying.
Growing a beard is a journey of self-expression and resilience. It’s not always easy, but it's always worth it. Remember, every beard is unique, just like the man who wears it. I hope your beard journey becomes even more fulfilling with these ten tips. Stay bearded, my friend!
