A well-groomed beard adorns many men and makes them look stylish without effort. For those who decided to acquire it, I will tell you about preparation, growing, leaving and other main stages – if you go through them in order, everything will work out.
Prepare – correct diet and regimen
Some men grow beards well, while others do not. Trichologists identify several reasons and factors that affect the growth of a beard: genetics, lifestyle, including diet, stress levels and bad habits, as well as hormones.
It is difficult to influence the first point, but the other two are quite feasible, and then the chances of a thick beard will seriously increase. It is worth starting a healthy lifestyle and consuming supplements such as biotin (vitamin H), fish oil and complexes that contain B vitamins and magnesium.
It is important to observe the regime of the day and rest, and sleep is considered healthy for at least seven to eight hours. During the day, it is advisable to take short breaks of 10-15 minutes, during which you can take a walk in the fresh air, do a warm-up, arrange a table tennis game with colleagues.
Start growing a beard and get itchy
It is best to start growing a beard in spring or summer: it is at this time of the year that the circulatory system works more intensively, which means that hair will grow much faster.
Before that, I recommend purchasing a beard oil like Joe´s Finest such products have a slight warming effect and increase blood flow to the hair follicles. A moisturizing or revitalizing face cream can help relieve the sensation and help the skin endure irritation.
Design a beard in the midst of its growth
After five to six weeks, the time will come when the beard will grow unevenly and the so-called “islets” will form. At this stage, it’s time to decide on the style of the beard and trim it to the chosen shape.
You can understand which beard will look harmonious by the shape of your face. A square face can be visually lengthened by making a short, rounded or triangular beard, or a goatee on the chin. A round face will visually stretch out a trapezoidal beard, wedge-shaped or a long goatee, as well as ducktail.
Continue to grow and maintain a beard
The work does not end there: the beard needs to grow more in order to look thicker. To keep it always in order, it is worth purchasing a special brush with natural bristles. It will smoothen curly hair and make it smoother, additionally it will do a light massage, increase blood circulation and stimulate new hair follicles to grow.
Maintain a tidy beard
With a beard, you will have to pay more attention to hygiene and rinse it daily with water, as well as wash it with a special shampoo once a week. It is not recommended to use hair shampoo for this: scalp and facial skin are different.
Beard shampoo does not contain aggressive surfactants that can be found in conventional shampoos, therefore it will delicately cleanse the skin of the face and hair and will not dry them out or cause irritation.
