It is hard to accept that it takes time to grow a beard.Your genetic profile is the most important factor in how fast your beard grows.There are things you can do to speed up the process.Take care of your beard as it grows, follow a beard-healthy lifestyle, and talk to your doctor if you need additional help.Don't stress, and be patient.
Step 1: Allow your facial hair to grow, and be patient.
There is not much you can do about the genetics of your beard growth.Most people will see their facial hair grow in after 4 weeks of not shaving, while you can take measures to support the process and increase the growth, but you should also accept that your beard will grow at its own pace.There is no evidence to support the idea that trimming your beard will increase growth.It is not known if frequent shaving before you start growing a beard stimulates the hair to grow faster, but the evidence is limited at best.If you start growing a beard, just let it grow.
Step 2: It is recommended that you wash your face twice a day.
Put warm water on your face.If you don't have a beard yet, massage your face with a cleanser.If you have a beard, use a mild cleanser on the facial hair.After rinsing the cleanser and/or shampoo, pat your face dry with a soft towel.This is done every morning and evening.Dirt and oil can accumulate on your hair follicles if you don't wash your face regularly.It's easier for them to grow.If you want to see if a cleanser is gentle for your skin, apply a small amount to your chin and leave for 10 minutes.If you don't have any redness or irritation, you can wash your face with the cleanser.
Step 3: It's a good idea to massage your face twice a day.
Apply firm but not painful pressure on your face with your fingers, then massage in small circles over your beard.The massage should take about 10 minutes twice a day.
Step 4: Exfoliation of your face is necessary.
If you want to wash your face as usual, rinse with warm water and leave your skin damp.If you have facial hair, rinse it away completely with clean water and pat your face dry.Eliminating dead skin cells will help your hair to grow more quickly.If you have a small patch on your chin, it's time to use an exfoliant.You should be good to go if you don't feel any burning or irritation.
Step 5: You can use beard oil or softener.
Beard oils and beard softeners may provide some benefits, even though you should be wary of any product claims made for stimulating beard growth.It is possible to encourage slightly faster growth by keeping your beard hairs soft and hydrated.If you have facial hair, don't use beard oil.It may make your problems worse.Regardless of how fast your beard is growing, beard products will make you look and feel better.
Step 6: Try to make homemade beard-stimulating recipes.
The supporting evidence for beard stimulators is limited.They aren't likely to cause any harm, so consider trying one or both of the following.Apply it to your beard in a thin layer, then rinse it away and use your normal face cleanser.If you notice any irritation, stop using this paste.The dried mustard leaves and amla oil should be combined to make a smooth paste.If you want to wash your face with your normal cleanser, apply it in a thin layer over your beard and leave it for 15-20 minutes.For the next few days, use the remaining paste daily.
Step 7: Foods with vitamins B6, B7, and B9 can be eaten.
Increasing your intake of B vitamins may help your beard grow a bit faster.You may want to talk to your doctor about taking a biotin supplement as well.Almonds are a great source of biotin.Chicken, beef, fish, dairy, and avocados have vitamins B3 and B5 in them.You can get vitamins B9 from cereals, nuts, and leafy greens.
Step 8: You should increase your intake of vitamins A, C and E.
B vitamins support healthy hair in some way.They are also important for your overall health.Vegetables like carrots, broccoli, and leafy greens are good sources of Vitamins A and C.Green peppers, tomatoes, and oranges are good sources of vitamins C and E.
Step 9: A balanced diet is good for beard health.
It is important to focus on eating a healthy diet that provides a wide variety of vitamins and minerals.If you think of it this way, whatever you choose is good for your beard.Eat a lot of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains.Cut back on processed foods and excess salt and sugar.Water is good for your body and beard hair.
Step 10: Health guidelines for sleep and exercise.
Like eating a healthy diet, getting enough exercise and sleep is good for your health.Aim for 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise per week.It is difficult to make conversation when your heart rate is elevated and you are breathing hard.Each week you should do 3-4 strength training sessions.It takes about 8 hours of sleep at night.
Step 11: It's better to reduce stress.
Hair loss can be caused by excessive stress.It is likely that it will slow down hair growth.The better your beard grows, the less you worry about it.You can find the stress reduction techniques that work best for you.Try things like yoga, meditation, deep breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, nature walks, listening to calming music, talking to friends, or reading a good book.If you're having a hard time handling stress, talk to your doctor and mental health professional.
Step 12: Don't smoking.
There is no evidence that smoking is bad for beard health.It's not unreasonable to think that smoking may affect beard growth.Whether you're trying to grow a beard or not, focus on quitting as soon as possible.There are many smoking cessation aids available.You should work with your doctor to find the right method for you.Smoking may cause your beard hair to turn gray faster.
Step 13: Seek medical advice about your testosterone and DHT levels.
T and DHT are the two types of testosterone.T impacts beard hair thickness.You may be able to enhance your beard growth with the help of medical supervision.Don't use testosterone-boosting pills, creams, injections, or other products without the advice and guidance of your doctor.There are a number of unwanted side effects that can affect beard growth.Your doctor may recommend strength-training as a way to increase testosterone levels.
Step 14: Talk to your doctor if you want to use minoxidil on your face.
The most common brand name for minoxidil is rogaine, which is used to slow the progress of male pattern baldness.It should help beard growth if it is applied correctly.Even though it is available over the counter in many areas, you should always consult your doctor before using it on your face.If you have patches where your beard doesn't grow in as well as you would like, this may be a better option.New hair growth may fall out if you stop treatment.
Step 15: Ask about micro-needling, which stimulates hair growth.
Microneedling involves rolling a device on your face that is similar to a lint roller and has hundreds of tiny needle points.Micro-needling advocates believe the tiny pinpricks increase beard growth.Some surgeons use in-office micro-needling to address skin issues.Before you buy a device yourself or undergo a micro-needling treatment, talk to a medical professional.The process should be painless if used correctly.The device needs to be soaked in alcohol before it can be used according to the instructions.
Step 16: It's a final option to look into facial hair transplants.
Hair transplants may be the only option for areas of your beard that won't grow in.As with top-of-the-head hair transplants, individual hair follicles are relocated from one area to another.Multiple procedures that are both costly and time consuming are required for hair transplants.The procedure doesn't always work and it may take up to 2 years to see the full results.It won't make your beard grow faster if you have transplants.
