How to grow a beard?

The question of questions: How long does it take to grow a beard? The answer, unfortunately, largely depends on genetics.

Shouldn’t you, in theory, if you want to grow a beard, just “let the beard grow”? As pointed out several times by the best barbers in the world, it’s not that simple.

Like it or not, it takes patience to get a “full beard”, soft and healthy, so you need to work hard. Below we have collected our tips on the topic of “beard growth”, thanks to which you will be able to obtain one of the most famous beard styles in the world, such as Hipster or Ducktail .

First of all, you’ll need to lay the groundwork. The first tip is to start shaving your beard every day, for the whole week that anticipates the growth phase , and this to stimulate the hair follicles.

Use a facial scrub to clean the underlying skin and remove dead skin cells (this will help prevent dandruff from forming) and continue to use it weekly, even when the beard has started to get thick.

Beard growth: the patches

Before grabbing your razor, take a moment to think. Are you still in the first month of growth? If so, be patient. Beard hair grows thick and uneven and will likely soon cover areas where there is no beard yet.

Are there still the spots? One tip would be to shave that particular area against the grain. By doing this, the hairs are likely to grow back thicker due to the angle at which you cut them.

Beard growth: the shape

Consider what types of beards flatter your face – for example, if you have a round face, the Wolverine (Mutton Chops) beard might be one of the best choices.

A suitable beard cut will help you make your face more symmetrical , which in turn will make you look more beautiful. In general, the goal is to make the face oval, balanced; in fact, if your face is square, lengthening your beard (a la Jason Momoa) will help you balance it; likewise, if you have a narrow face, a full beard will help create an oval.

In this regard, we recommend that you speak to your trusted barber, as they can advise you on the best way to get the face shape you are looking for.

Don’t forget about the skin under your beard

Just because you can’t see it anymore after growing a beard doesn’t mean you should overlook the skin underneath. In fact, the healthier your skin, the better your beard will look .

Use a face scrub when the beard is shorter to smooth it out; as it grows, wash it thoroughly in the shower with your fingertips so that it reaches your skin in the shower. Then brush it when you get out of the shower and dry it with a towel.

And if your beard starts to get “uncomfortable”, absolutely don’t scratch . Instead, condition it with oil, conditioner, or a special beard cream. Not only will you keep your hair straight, but when it’s time to shave it all off, doing it will be really easy.

Don’t feel like wasting money on beard products? Instead, consider using natural products like argan or coconut oil to nourish and soften it.

Growing a beard: maintenance

In recent years, short, well-groomed beards are becoming more and more popular . This is good news for those who cannot grow thick beards, but it will require more maintenance.

It will take four to six weeks for your beard to really take hold, so keep growing it for at least a month. When cutting, use a precision trimmer to ensure an even finish, paying particular attention to the mouth and mustache. For these in particular, stretch them with a comb and use a pair of scissors to cut them.
