Many men decide at some point in their lives to grow a beard. Choosing to have facial hair is a personal decision that requires patience and persistence. If you want to grow a thick beard, eat a healthy diet and avoid shaving early. Genetics and hormones play a role in whether you will be able to grow a full beard, but most men can reasonably expect to do so. Be proud of your decision to grow the beard and do not let any negative comments sway you from your goal.
1. Get involved wholeheartedly with growing a beard. This can be a long and sometimes frustrating process, so make sure you are fully invested in your decision. Allow yourself at least six weeks to grow a thick beard and hold on to your engagement even if you want to give up.
2. Eat a healthy diet of protein, fruit and vegetables to ensure that your hair grows in Nice and thick. Take 2.5 mg of biotin every day. This is a dietary supplement known to help with hair growth.
3. Observe one or two days worth of stub. You can check to just spot and lead hair growth to determine if you can grow the type of beard you want. As long as you are satisfied with the amount of coverage, you will have more confidence in growing your beard.
4. Stop shaving for at least four weeks. Resist the urge to believe that shaving will help your beard grow thicker. “It’s not true that shaving makes whiskers darker or coarser or grow faster,” according to an April 1972 Science Digest article citing Herbert Mescon, who was the president of the Boston University Institute of Dermatology at that time.
5. Use a mild shampoo to cleanse your face if itching becomes a problem. You can also try a dandruff shampoo, a conditioner, baby oil or facial moisturizer. The itch is temporary so don’t let it deter you from growing your beard.
6. Buy a beard trimmer after you’ve let the beard grow for at least four weeks. Familiarize yourself with the trimmer before using it.
7. Define a neck line along the bottom of your beard. Trim the edges of your beard for a clean and precise look. Always use clean, sharp razor blades or trimmer blades to avoid pulling hair or causing infection that can lead to hair loss.
8. Wash your thick beard with the same shampoo you use for your head. Pat it dry gently
