How long does it take to grow a mustache? He asked! I was confused because I wasn’t in the position to give him the correct answer as at that moment. So To find the correct answer I dived into research and full-time study with my clients, and this is what I found.

So how long does it take to grow a mustache? Mustache is part of male facial hair and in as much as this is concerned the duration is determined by so many factors, but on a normal stand Men mustache usually takes 3-5 months to grow fully when trimmed at first place. While it mostly starts growing in boys who don’t have facial hair before at 16-20 years range (differs in every teen)

Why Can’t I Grow A Mustache?

After 20-30 years, you still don’t have hair below your nose to boast off (although it’s rare, but 100% possible). Then you start wondering what might be the cause. Well, you aren’t doing or eating anything bad dear. From my study and research, I found out that the major reason/cause why a man or teen can’t grow mustache are: Genetics (hereditary) and baby-face syndrome in men.

Let’s break it down:

But before then, I know you would love to spend more time just to find out what exactly makes beard grow faster.

Genetics / Hereditary

As we all know that hereditary is the biological process whereby parents pass a certain gene from to their children. “Genetic factors are responsible for the density, length, color, and texture of hair.”- Ncbi.

Believe me, there is nothing you can do to grow your mustache naturally when genetics effects are in control, except TRANSPLANTING.

Baby-Face Syndrome

Do you notice that a good percentage of Chinese men don’t grow mustache or beard?

Some people fail to understand that baby face doesn’t just end with a high raised eyebrow, round face with big eyes, narrow chin and small nose, no or minute facial hair is another characteristics.

Most times I use the amount of facial hair in men to determine their age range and maturity level. But in baby-face case, you can’t tell a book by its cover.

I have seen a lot of guys who don’t have a single facial hair trying all manner of beard and mustache growth cream, relaxer, name it. Just to get measurable sideburns, mustache or beard.

After the trend beard and mustache growth products among teenagers, Dr. Shaurya Rohatgi (Pediatric Dermatologist, Hair Transplant Surgeon with 9 years experience overall) said “if there are no hair roots, how do you think putting oil or creams or changing diet will suddenly start growing hairs in areas where there are no hair roots” Come to think of it logically.

Baby-face syndrome is just like hereditary effect, you can never manipulate both.

How Do I Grow My Mustache For The First Time?

Always remember this, the first time is for teenagers not for men. That’s to say “if you are 30 years or above and still don’t have a mustache”, I will tell you to just forget about it and embrace your baby face, Nothing more.

Now! You that is looking for ways to grow a mustache for the first time as a teen, my biggest advice to people like you is to:

  1. Leave the mustache to grow naturally from it’s at the early stage.
  2. Don’t shave it off thinking it will grow thicker after the first shave. and lastly
  3. Never force products on yourself when trying to grow a mustache.
  4. Don’t waste your $$ on so-called mustache or beard growth cream. If you really have enough to spend consider going for a hair transplant which is the only quick option. And never listen to speculation and myths.

Finally, take what you just read above as my tips to make your mustache grow faster and thick. Lol
