One of the most common questions we get asked is, “How do I make my beard thicker or fuller.” Well, our suggestions are normally based around maximizing your own beard’s genetics. You do that by boosting your natural testosterone – which means eating right, exercising and living weights, taking appropriate supplements like biotin and fish oil, and lowering your stress and other poor habits. Check out the above section for some tips and tricks to boost testosterone and the right foods to eat.
Hi , I may have missed it in the ” how to bit ” , but to me right up there with the hair thickness etc in order of importance is hair colour of both beard and head . That`s what I believe is top priority to a beard style .It can be broken down into light, dark,& grey . I`ve got the magpie look for now .
Evolutionary psychology explanations for the existence of beards include signalling sexual maturity and signalling dominance by increasing perceived size of jaws, and clean-shaved faces are rated less dominant than bearded. Some scholars assert that it is not yet established whether the sexual selection leading to beards is rooted in attractiveness (inter-sexual selection) or dominance (intra-sexual selection). A beard can be explained as an indicator of a male’s overall condition. The rate of facial hairiness appears to influence male attractiveness. The presence of a beard makes the male vulnerable in fights, which is costly, so biologists have speculated that there must be other evolutionary benefits that outweigh that drawback. Excess testosterone evidenced by the beard may indicate mild immunosuppression, which may support spermatogenesis.
In a lot of ways, this version of Honest Amish beard balm is similar to the other, in that it’s US-made with natural ingredients. However, one of the key difference is that it’s designed to give you better control over your unruly beast of a beard.
Try it out for a few weeks and see how it fits into your busy schedule, if it works then good for you but if not consider a different beard style that won’t take as much time and effort to take care of.
These herbal lubricants are distilled from bark, flowers, leaves, roots, and other elements of botanical plants — creating the aroma found in beard oils. Once those aromatic chemicals are extracted, they are combined with a carrier oil to finalize the solution. Examine these usual suspects:

All of that aside, it’s important to note that most men will experience patchiness at some point in the growth cycle—even those who ultimately wind up with full, thick beards. A lot of this simply has to do with your hair growth cycle in general. You could theoretically have a lot of beard hair in the shedding stage at the precise time you’re growing it out, giving the appearance of a patchy beard when it’s really just temporary shedding.
For a beard trimmer to be perfect, it needs to be simple to use and shall have all the features which makes it just perfect to stand out its duties. The Philips Norelco QT4014/42 beard trimmer 3500 stands out amazingly under the aforesaid category, and the product’s simple design makes it the best beard trimmer for shaping.
You cannot do anything to prevent your natural hair growth except shaving it regularly, which will be a part of your adult male life anyway, so embrace it. The thing about beard becoming denser and growing faster when shaved is false, it’s a pure myth and known to be false.
Beardruff is formed when a natural oil in your skin called sebum oil is dried up by your hair follicles. Beard balm, like beard oil, is made of ingredients that closely resemble sebum oil and adds much-needed hydration to your skin.
In practice, beard oil is actually a powerful combination of carrier oils and essential oils. While the carrier oils are the ones that actually have the greatest positive impact on your beard, nourishing and triggering growth, the essential oils are the ones that give a top beard oil its fragrance and the extra vitamins.
There isn’t really anything you can do about the hair growth genes you inherited (yet), but what you can do is make some lifestyle changes to cut out anything that might be stunting hair growth to cut down on the time it takes to grow a beard. Get some sleep, exercise and ensure that you’re getting enough nutrition—especially protein. This will shorten beard growth time tremendously because a healthy body is more likely to grow hair.
Sleep is also essential for a properly nourished body—all the way down to the hairs on your chin. Collyer says that 7-8 hours nightly is imperative. Cellular turnover accelerates while we sleep, meaning that most of the growing and healing your body does happen overnight. You’re not giving your healthier, stronger cells a fighting chance if you deprive them of rest and recharge. Similarly, the body’s blood flow slows when it is poorly rested, and this lack of circulation means that fewer nutrients and vitamins reach their destination. (Similar to being dehydrated.) Since the hair doesn’t get as many nutrients, it doesn’t grow as fast or as strong. In fact, this can also lead to hair loss atop your head in addition to a compromised beard. (Side note: Why not magnify the benefits to your skin with a night cream?)
While you don’t need a reason to start growing a beard, doing it for charity like Movember can be a great starting point if you feel compelled to explain yourself. Make that commitment to grow a beard today, give it time and just start growing!

Hi Sagar. Wash your face with The Mod Cabin’s birch tar or amber resin soap, then apply backwoods beard balm and comb through it with our boars hair beard brush. Also make sure you are getting enough water in your diet and you may also want to look for a biotin supplement to help your facial hair grow in thicker. The Mod Cabin’s beard kit is a great way to start.
Maybe it seems like an extra step in the process, but if you really want to get the most out of your beard, condition it. It defends against the dreaded “itch”, for one, because it helps your beard maintain the proper amount of hydration.
As for the trimmers, the ones with the (best) flexible comb, powerful motor, and sharper blades are going to produce a more even trim assuming you are putting in the same effort. On this list, I’d say the Philips Norelco Beard Trimmer Series 7200 should give you the most even trim overall.
You should definitely be seeing results by now. Keep in mind, what you wash your face and beard with matters, too, and you want to make sure that you’re not using anything with harsh chemicals. It’s also important to keep your face exfoliated, because clogged pores can cause ingrown hairs, and inhibit hair growth. You can check out our all natural soap, or our cleansing oil. Another tip is you can use a beard trimmer to keep all your facial hair trimmed to a shorter length closer to your face, which will help make those patches less apparent while they’re filling in.
Jojoba Oil is structurally very similar to – and mimics – your natural body oils (sebum). Because of the way it closely matches your own natural oils, it is quickly absorbed by your face and beard. It’s the most common carrier oil found in beard oils.
I have been trying to grow a beard for a while now but it was fragile so I decided to start over what do you recommend for thicker healthier beards? I already grow all over my face just want a stronger healthier looking beard. And what do u recommend to use for styling once it’s long enough.
