Take a look in the mirror and see if you can spot any ingrown hairs. In general, they will have some redness around them, maybe a little bit of pus. If the problem is minor, take some tweezers and pluck out the offending hair; the itchiness in that local area should resolve, and you can always apply some anti-itch ointment like Neosporin Eczema Essentials Hydrocortisone Anti-Itch Cream. The hydrocortisone aspect will reduce inflammation around the ingrown hair area while the anti-itch part will sooth residual itchiness while the spot heals over the course of a day or so. (Remember that products containing cortisone and its relatives are a type of steroid, which is why they are so great at reducing inflammation; the double-edged sword with these topical treatments are they can actually thin skin long term, so be careful not to overuse.)
First of all, I’m going to be honest and tell you that if you can’t grow hair in certain places, there is no natural product that will make hair grow where there is no hair cuticle beneath the skin. That being said, you can certainly take steps to make sure that you’re creating the conditions for healthy hair growth by making sure that your exfoliating your skin to allow the hair to grow above the skin, and not using products with synthetic ingredients that can damage your skin and hair.
Ignore the belief that shaving regularly makes hair grow thicker and quicker. There is no scientific evidence to support this. Shaving your beard will only reduce the amount of hair on your face, not bring it in more rapidly.
So I just started growing my goatee out again. I have been putting it off for a while now because I hate the initial itching that comes with it. I have ridiculously course whiskers so I need something to make it softer. I decided to give this stuff a try and I will admit that I am very happy with the results. I’m not going to sit here and say that my whiskers are as soft as a baby birds feathers but they are noticeably softer. It has cut the itching in half. If I had to come up with one complaint it would be that I wish the bottle was double the size for the price. I like to put on more than the recommended dose. All in all I am very pleased!

Generally the “cheek line”, the upper limit of the beard on the cheeks, is best left natural. Some men butcher otherwise excellent beards by shaving the cheeks into strange shapes. Unless your beard appears to be starting just below your eyes, you probably are better off not shaving or sculpting the beard on your cheeks.
Mesopotamian men of Semitic origin (Akkadians, Assyrians, Babylonians and Chaldeans) devoted great care to oiling and dressing their beards, using tongs and curling irons to create elaborate ringlets and tiered patterns. Unlike them, the non-Semitic Sumerian men tended to shave off their facial hair (which is especially notable, for example, in the numerous statues of Gudea, a ruler of Lagash, as opposed to the depiction of the roughly contemporaneous Semitic ruler of Akkad, Naram-Sin, on his victory stele).
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.
Beard shampoo is the backbone of beard care. It cleanses debris out of your beard as gently as possible while maintaining your beard’s ideal pH balance, unlike scalp shampoo, which can be harsh on beards.

Live with it or figure out your style with a clean-shaven face. I’m 26 and patchy as hell, I’m only growing it out because I don’t give a damn. There’s nothing you can do about a thin beard besides hoping you grow into a full one – which can take years. It’s all a roll of the die.

For best results, wash your beard with an all-natural beard soap and apply beard balm when dry. Scrape out a dime sized amount of balm and rub between your palms. Run your fingers through your facial hair, starting from the neck and working up, making sure to rub balm into the skin where your beard grows.
Confucius held that the human body was a gift from one’s parents to which no alterations should be made. Aside from abstaining from body modifications such as tattoos, Confucians were also discouraged from cutting their hair, fingernails or beards. To what extent people could actually comply with this ideal depended on their profession; farmers or soldiers probably would not have grown a long beard because it would interfere with their work.
