How To Grow a Thicker Beard This #Movember

Posted on 25-10-2016 by Benedict Lim



If you read our article, “A Bearded Man’s Guide To Beard Care” and it made you want to try grooming a full on, luscious beard, then this article is for you. 


Growing a full on beard requires patience and perseverance since the rate and thickness of your hair growth depends largely on genetics and testosterone levels. Although genetics dictates your hair growth, here are some tips to defy nature (a little) and help you on your path to that glorious, luscious beard you’ve always wanted.


Healthy You, Healthy Beard


You might be surprised how important eating right and getting plenty of rest plays a big part in growing your beard out. The growth of your beard corresponds directly to how healthy and well rested your body is. 


Try introducing more protein-rich food such as fish, egg and beans to your diet. Make sure you get sufficient rest and try to reduce stresses in your life, as stress will also affect the growth of your beard. If you’re having a bad day at work, here are 5 simple things you can do to relieve stress immediately





To take your beard grooming further, try taking supplements to improve hair growth. Biotin (Vitamin B7) is said to help promote hair growth. It should be available at any supplement store or pharmacy, but do consult your doctor prior beginning a supplement routine and discuss the right dosage for you.



Fight The Beard Itch


Growing out your beard requires commitment. Don’t shave off your beard at the first sign of an itch; let it grow out to its full potential. It will take at least 4 weeks for your facial hair to grow completely, so endure the uncomfortable period. Resist the temptation to shave it. Eventually, the different parts of your beard even out and “connect”, giving you a fuller beard to comb and groom.



I hope you’ll find this guide useful. Share this guide with your patchy-bearded friends so that they can grow their beards out to their fullest potential!
