How many supplements, oils and balms do you think you need to grow a thick, dense beard? Well, whether you start from a decent beard missing a few spots or you're rocking a couple of chin hairs, when it comes to growth, there's no need to break the bank. Here's everything you'll need to know when it comes to growing a beard.
We know, this sounds cliche. Sleep seems to be the answer to everything. Whereas this may be the case, it does hold some truth to it. Sleep is where your cells repair themselves, so even though sufficient sleep isn't a direct cause of rapid beard growth, it is important and lack of sleep will hinder anything else you do on your journey to a full face of hair.
2) Physical Activity
This one isn't exactly a deciding factor, though sweating and opening your pores will definitely aid stimulating hair growth. Of course, there are perfectly in shape people who still struggle to grow beards, and those of us who packed on a few pounds with Viking-like beards, so take this one with a pinch of salt.
This one is a no-brainer. Exfoliating your skin will get rid of dead skin cells as well as opening your pores. This will make growing facial hair much easier. Note: do NOT exfoliate every day, this can have reverse effects on your skin. Generally, its best to exfoliate with warm water every 5 days.
4) The Juice (Not endorsed)
If all else fails, you can also try Minoxidil. Before you continue, we're not endorsing this method, as it was intended for head hair and not facial hair. That being said, there have been countless cases of this method working. Applying Minoxidil to your beard (or where you want your beard to grow) twice a day, could stimulate hair growth in as short as three months. This is still heavily dependent on genetics, with some growths taking as long as two years. Regardless, Minoxidil enables your beard to come much faster than the rate of Mother Nature. Don't take our word for it though, Facebook groups such as "The Minox Beard Spot" on Facebook have thousands of members, whom showcase their results.
