Last month I was researching to know everything about beard gang and what exactly makes beard grow faster (if there is any). Thank goodness, because this will help shade us few meters away from fake beard product sellers and promoters.
In the absence or presence of genetics, hormones, and testosterone the two major things that make beard grow faster are healthy beard routine and the amount of dihydrotestosterone you produce as a man. Let’s look into it what that means and what you can do about it.
Firstly, what is dihydrotestosterone?
Dihydrotestosterone is a component of testosterone made active by enzyme when needed in the hair follicle’s oil gland. Trusted source showed that Testosterone works in favor of hair follicle priming, while dihydrotestosterone favors promotion linear facial hair growth. Don’t get confused, because this process can only be understood by experts, of which am not one. Linear facial hair growth also mean how fast beard grow.
As said earlier we don’t need to go too deep under this section because there is nothing you and I can do. We just need to leave nature to handle itself.
So Hope isn’t lost yet? Yes! We still have one option left, which is: planning for a healthy beard routine.
Here is the deal,
We are going to help you organise a healthy beard routine. Nothing more. But the Cons of organizing healthy routine is that what works for John might not work for John Bull because of body difference and many more unidentified factors. I believe you can relate.
So, “Test until you find out what works for you” is our goal-go plan.
Sad? I don’t think so, because you won’t be left to go just like that. I have gathered enough goodies that you MUST need down here. You want to find out what the goodies are? Then
These goodies have worked for hundreds of men. We definitely know your case wouldn’t be different or difficult.
However, your health affects everything about you: both negatively or positively: and the beard isn’t exempted. We all know that you can’t alter genetics and hormones, but there are healthy lifestyle routines that may make beard grow fast.
Hey, wait!! Do you already have mid to large-sized curly beard? Why not stop straightening it and apply this method for a curly beard. Alternatively, if you don’t like the bearded crew, you can check out our chin strap beard styles meant for men with no to small-sized facial hair.
Let’s ride on!
Take Away: Research has said and proven that a male beard hair grows ½ inch per month. but isn’t applicable to all male.
Quick Healthy Beard Routine.
Well planned beard routine does not only make beard healthy, but it also saves time and gives you the confidence that you aren’t doing anything nasty.
So here is the ideal routine that will help keep beard healthy, which is equivalent to beard growth.
#1 Wash Beard.
Washing beard doesn’t just wipe off build-ups, it also makes beard smell-free. Of course, no one likes a smelly beard, not even dogs.
But, how often should you wash your beard? Well, I will say it depends on you and the surrounding environment. Generally, the beard must be washed at least once a week. But in cases where you are constantly exposed to dirt either from work, house or street, it is advised to wash the beard daily.
But do you know that you can’t just use your normal bathing or washing soap to wash your beard? Want to know why?
The truth is, the majority of wash or bathing soap will always wash out your beard essentials, leaving it dry and irritating. And the results from dry and irritating beard is not something friendly.
So I highly you recommend get the appropriate beard wash products, which is always good for a start and long run.
However, at the beginner stage, you can’t use shampoo and conditioner, so you have no other option than to go with soap.
But remember to use soap that doesn’t contain alcohol, sulfate and most importantly doesn’t dry out skin/hair
#2 Dry-Out Beard
After washing or bathing use a clean towel to dry out your beard. The dirty or old tower might facilitate the growth of germs and bacteria.
What about using a blow dryer?
Is it working for you? If yes, you can continue, but if it makes your beard feel dry and frizzy, stop using it immediately and go for a towel.
But always remember to leave beard hair damp as it helps make beard soft and easy for products application.
#3 Apply Beard Products
Beard oil and balm works well for standout beard health.
Beard oil acts as a moisturizer to the skin and facial hair in the absence of natural oil. These oil (original oil) are designed to prevent dryness and itchiness or flakes.
Comb or brush in conjunction with beard balm helps give beard better shape and keep it in the right direction. That’s to say, beard balm is best for mid to big sized beard.
#3 Brush & Comb
Last but not the least step in morning routine is brushing or combing the thing. If you have a very bushy beard, you must have both brush and comb available. As for beginner, you can use any provided you have a decent look.
The brush helps train and shape beard in the right direction, while the comb is needed to remove all tangles and loss hair.
After all, said and done, it’s time to step out in grand style while keeping the next routine in mind. The whole morning routine shouldn’t take more than 12 minutes to get set.
During the Day
This routine isn’t really important, but for men whose beard hair gets dry and frizzy easily, we choose to include it.
Unlike the morning beard routine, you don’t need to spend more than 3 minutes during the day. All you just need to do (in our humble opinion) is moisturize the beard again then comb. That’s all
Evening Before Going To Bed
Time to rest and time for bed! Just immediately after night shower, apply beard oil or balm(if necessary apply the two), these products help keep your beard hydrated and in-form while you sleep.
If you are a stubborn-sleeper rolling from one edge of the bed to another. It is advised you apply little drops of beard oil to avoid bed early stains. You can still do some little combing.
Trim Beard (Not Daily)
Frequent beard trimming is the best way to your beard in a perfect growth shape. Once a week isn’t compulsory, but it’s important.
But the problem now is that, if you aren’t careful enough, you will end up chopping some hair off, which is a big-time bad experience.
So to reduce the risk, a pair of scissors and a standby mirror is what you need as you have more control over the movement.
What about the neckline?
The next professional barber within your neighborhood is the right person to take of it, only if you aren’t that good at carving. But always be ready to attend to the itchiness.
Helpful Tips For Faster Beard Growth
Always remember this “there is the climax for everything” in essence, there is a level that beard can’t exceed (terminal beard) and believe me there is nothing you can do about it when beard gets to that level.
1. Make the appropriate beard grooming tools available
2. Style Beard according to Growth Shape and Size
3. Eat and stay healthy
4. Exercise patience.
5. Avoid synthetic or chemical-made products, they really can’t be of great help in this whole process. Go for all-natural or 90% natural ingredients made products.
