Once you’ve rinsed that out, apply softener thoroughly to your beard. Let it sit in your beard for a few minutes while you continue your shower, then rinse it out just before you finish. Leaving softener in your beard for a few minutes makes a world of difference in enhancing its conditioning effects.
Once your beard really starts to come in, you can shape it. For noobs, it’s important to keep it simple and pick proven styles that suit your face shape until you develop a better eye for beards. (And if you are completely devoid of all artistic talent or discernment, don’t be ashamed to go to a barber at this point—he or she will get you on the right track.)

1. Take Supplements: Taking biotin supplements daily is one way to make your hair grow faster, and potentially stimulate regrowth for lost hair atop your head. There’s little conclusive evidence for its ability to stimulate the hairs that have fallen out, but one thing most doctors agree upon is that biotin does strengthen the keratin infrastructure of your hair, meaning it fortifies the hair and thickens it. So, in theory your beard grows thicker uniformly across each hair shaft. You can get biotin on the shelves of most drug stores, and there are many companies that tout beard-growing pills, which are mostly biotin and other vitamins packaged with some fancy graphic designs.
Let me just put you at ease since you’re here, it’s completely normal to loose beard hairs. We lose hair from head to toe every day all year long. Beard hair is much thicker and coarser, so it will show up much easier on your pillowcase. You don’t need to shave your beard off. What you can do to prevent it from accelerating is decrease the amount of time you spend combing or brushing your beard. Make sure it’s a high-quality one so it won’t snag and pull out your hairs.
“Be very, very careful because you can clog your pores if you put too much on,” said Harvey, the founder of The BarberStars, who shapes hair for the likes of rapper Nas, and athletes like Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Grant Hill and Chris Webber among others.
A square jaw is ultra-manly, but if your jaw is exceptionally wide, go for a beard style that’s shorter on the sides. If your chin is small, you can grow the beard longer there. The result is that you’ve made your chin larger and your jaw smaller, averaging out your facial features.
Depending on the country and period, facial hair was either prohibited in the army or an integral part of the uniform. For example, the French Foreign Legion’s combat engineers are all required to be bearded.
While beard balms are ideal for conditioning your beard hair, they do more than that by also treating the skin underneath. Growing a beard can be fraught with a few complications, albeit mostly minor ones. Two of the most common annoyances guys face are ingrown hairs and flaky skin or dandruff. Beard balm is your best and easiest bet for ridding yourself of these issues all while conditioning your beard so that it looks even more majestic than it already does.

A warning about orange scents, they make your skin absorb much more UV rays! It will damage your skin in the sun. I wouldn’t recommend using it on your beards due to the risk of skin damage. It’s even worse if you accidentally lick your upper lip food savers and ingest a bit!

Let’s be honest not everybody can grow a full beard. Facial hair will vary depending on the shape of your face and genetics – whether you’re naturally hairy or not. Remember that in essence growing a beard is a fashion statement. The last thing you want is a beard style that will not fit the shape of your face.
Moisturizing ingredients are generally oils, because they’re natural and typically very safe. While oils may sound like they might make your hair too greasy, not all oils are the same. There are a lot of “lightweight” oils that don’t clog pores or make your skin or hair greasy, and these are usually the ones that come in beard balm. Oils like avocado and coconut are common because they exhibit these properties and have extra benefits as well, such as being antioxidant, which protects your cells from free radicals, which can not only make you look old over time but make your skin and hair look less healthy in the short term.
3. Dye It: This one is smoke and mirrors, but it works. I have brown hair, but half my beard is a weird translucent blond. So, I often dye it to match the blondes with the browns, and it more than triples the density. This tip ain’t helpful for anyone who doesn’t also have blonde beard hairs and dark hairs to match, but it does the trick, and usually confuses my friends who see my regularly—in a good way. Don’t be ashamed to admit the secret, either: Your beard is already thick, it just doesn’t appear that way. So you’re helping showcase what’s there. As for brands, Just for Men has yet to fail me, and they have a good sliding scale of options for facial hair. Just don’t let it set for more than prescribed, or else you’ll have patchy dye spots on your skin for a couple days.
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.
If you’re up for trying some balm, consider something like Professor Fuzzworthy’s Beard Balm & Gloss Conditioner . Made in Tasmania, it contains beeswax from the Leatherwood plant.

If your cheeks are very sparse and patchy, then go for the goatee. The full beard is timeless, but other styles will come and go into fashion. See this beard infographic for inspiration on the different facial hair styles.
Beard balm is a product that every man with facial hair should keep in his medicine cabinet. It’s a versatile conditioner, generally made from natural ingredients, that not only softens your hair, but also treats and prevents common conditions that beard-growers face, such as itchiness.
Much like our suggestion to keep your beard clean, making sure both your facial hair and skin are well lubricated and moisturized will help ensure a fuller looking beard over time. By using beard softener and beard oil as part of your larger grooming regimen, your skin and facial hair will avoid the irritating dryness that creates beard dandruff and the build-up the clogs pores and reduces facial hair production. Aesthetically too, using beard oil and softener can help make your beard simply look fuller because of their abilities to help evenly distribute the denser parts of your facial hair throughout your beard.
As with all issues we each find with our beards, the more you stare at it, the more flaws come to light and the more you judge your lack of bearded perfection, something that is really out of your control. By constantly judging your own beard, you’re only bringing yourself down and as your harshest critic, that can take a much larger toll than most might admit to. Try to remember that no one else who observes your beard is picking you apart like you do and the issues you see in your own beard will be greatly diminished if you can learn to not make hourly notes on your beard growth by constantly looking at its reflection. Moral of the story, the less often you look at your beard, the less you’ll be critical of it, and the more progress you’ll see when you do take a peek.
Hi Robin, thanks for your questions. Age can effect beard growth. Prime beard growing years are generally between 20-60. But many people older and younger grow full beards. Perhaps the most overlooked component to beard growth is hydration. Make sure you are drinking plenty of water, wash your face with an all-natural hot processed birch tar soap, and then apply beard oil or beard balm. In addition, a biotin supplement can help your beard grow thicker.
2. Let It Grow: In the same way you need to suffer through some awkward medium-length hairstyles en route to Fabio-like hair, sometimes you need to suffer through some awkward beard growing phases in order to fill in the patchy spots. Even if it’s not quite curly enough to fill in the patchy spots by just swirling over them, let it all grow out as long as you can and it’ll start to cover these spots. You should let it grow untrimmed on the cheeks and under the chin for at least a month at the start. Relax it daily with a nourishing beard oil, to encourage some movement and softness. A weekly hot oil treatment will do wonders for softness (and for your skin), and you can also brush the beard daily, then coach the strays over any patches with a high-hold, conditioning beard balm. But please, while you grow it out, keep the neckline, cheeklines, and mustache in check.
The highest ranking Ancient Egyptians grew hair on their chins which was often dyed or hennaed (reddish brown) and sometimes plaited with interwoven gold thread. A metal false beard, or postiche, which was a sign of sovereignty, was worn by kings and (occasionally) ruling queens. This was held in place by a ribbon tied over the head and attached to a gold chin strap, a fashion existing from about 3000 to 1580 BC.
Hello sir! I’ve been growing my beard fora few years now, and over the past couple of years I’ve started to play with different beard-care products. I use a beard wash from a company called Wild Rose Herbs, as well as a beard balm from Honest Amish. Any experience or opinions on either of these companies?
The reason your beard hasn’t grown yet is probably your genetics. Still, if you’ve read the article, you know that there are some steps you can take to try and change that. Eat more food rich in proteins, minerals, and vitamins, start exercising, reduce stress and get full 8 hours sleep. Hope this will help and your beard will start to grow.
My husband’s beard was just a little too rough for me. So, for Christmas, I got him the non scented beard oil. First of all, his beard is nice to look at, it actually looks groomed. It’s easier to comb (I did buy him a sandalwood wooden beard comb that is excellent). And most importantly it’s nice and soft and doesn’t hurt to kiss him anymore! My husband especially likes it bc “it doesn’t stink”. He refuses to wear any male “perfumes”.
In the time of Alexander the Great the custom of smooth shaving was introduced. Reportedly, Alexander ordered his soldiers to be clean-shaven, fearing that their beards would serve as handles for their enemies to grab and to hold the soldier as he was killed. The practice of shaving spread from the Macedonians, whose kings are represented on coins, etc. with smooth faces, throughout the whole known world of the Macedonian Empire. Laws were passed against it, without effect, at Rhodes and Byzantium; and even Aristotle conformed to the new custom, unlike the other philosophers, who retained the beard as a badge of their profession. A man with a beard after the Macedonian period implied a philosopher, and there are many allusions to this custom of the later philosophers in such proverbs as: “The beard does not constitute a philosopher.”
