Many people think that beard growing just comes naturally. While it is true that facial hair growth is a natural occurrence, there are things that a man can do to promote healthy facial hair and the growth of an impressive looking beard. Today, we have some beard growing tips for the beard lovers.
Tips for growing a healthy beard
Healthy beard is desired by everyone who wants to grow facial hair. But to grow a healthy beard you can follow some tips and tricks. Here are 13 beard growing tips which will ensure a healthy and faster facial hair growth.
1. Stay focused on your health.
A healthy beard starts on the inside. If you do not focus on staying healthy, then your beard will reflect a poor diet, lack of sleep or just overall bad hygiene habits.
2. Add Vitamins to your daily routine.
Vitamins such as B complex, B6 and B12 are excellent for hair growth. You can add foods that are rich in B vitamins or you can take supplements as a part of your daily routine. There is also a multivitamin called VitaBeard that has shown significant benefits when growing a beard.
3. High protein diet promotes healthy beard.
A high protein diet will promote a healthy beard that grows quickly. Healthy testosterone levels are important to grow a beard. High testosterone levels are aided by a diet that is high in protein and saturated fats, so eggs and animal fat are excellent for your diet but sugars, natural and processed will inhibit beard growth.
4. Have an exercise plan and execute it.
Growing a beard means that you have to get your blood pumping. All of the vitamins, fats, and proteins that have been added to your diet have to get to your skin and hair follicles through your blood. Good circulation from intensive workouts, those that get your heart pumping, will aid in getting the needed nutrients to your beard.
5. Get your beauty sleep to allow beard growing thicker and faster.
When you sleep your body is regenerating itself after the daily grind. Make sure you are on a sleep schedule that allows you to have 6-8 hours of uninterrupted sleep. This allows your body to reboot and your beard will grow thicker and faster.
6. Fight the itch to grow it longer.
For most men, when growing out a beard, the itch of new hair growth can be their downfall. The itching will slowly subside after a few weeks of growing out the beard. Stay with it and do not shave. Constant scratching can also cause damage to the beard and the skin beneath, so curb the desire to scratch.
7. No shaping or trimming before beard gets thicker.
Even if you are planning on having a short, neatly trimmed beard; wait a few months before attacking it with the best trimmer. Let the beard grow in thick so that you can easily shape and trim it.
8. Wash your beard with shampoo.
Many men do not feel the need to wash their beards, or they simply scrub them with a bar soap. Bar soap will dry out the beard as well as cause problems with the skin beneath the beard. Find a quality, moisturizing shampoo that will stop hair breakage and keep it from becoming brittle. Wash your beard at least three times each week. A clean, well-moisturized beard will look healthy and fuller.
9. Use quality conditioner.
Beards can start to look and feel wiry and even the best moisturizing shampoo will not stop this. A quality conditioner will soften the beard giving it a well maintained and fuller look. Leave the conditioner in for about 2-3 minutes before rinsing it out. A leave-in conditioner is also recommended for between washes.
10. Use suitable facial hair Products.
If you are using styling products, remember that whatever you are putting in your beard will eventually work its way to the skin underneath. Use products that are non-comedogenic, so that your pores will not become clogged. Whiteheads and blackheads occur from clogged pores and can cause facial hair to not grow as thickly or it can even cause it to fall out.
11. Learn when to trim the beard.
Once your beard has come in fully, to maintain a healthy looking beard, a trim should be done every two months. This is keeping the hair healthy and removing any damaged ends. If you are keeping a short, well-trimmed beard then you will want to trim is every two to three weeks.
12. Learn using the right tools.
The type of tools used when combing and trimming your beard can make a difference as to the health and look of the beard. An electric trimmer is ideal for trimming the edge of your beard on your face. However, when you are shaping the beard a comb with sturdy tines and straight-edged scissors are recommended. Keeping a long beard brushed is also ideal for promoting a better beard growth. Use a brush with natural bristles and brush in a downward motion.
13. Eat neatly for a sporting beard.
When sporting a beard, a man needs to take extra precaution when eating. Certain foods can easily cling to a beard and food build-up can cause damage to the beard as well as the skin beneath. When eating, take smaller bites and wipe your face and beard after each bite. Once you are completely finished eating a moist towel should be used to wipe down the beard. A damp napkin will also do the trick in a pinch.
