Ladies, if your man has a beard, share this post with him ASAP! It might not be obvious, but growing a beard can be a challenge and a great demonstration of patience. Sometimes growing your beard out requires more effort than caring for it.
Fortunately, today’s modern men have many products available to help achieve a full beard that they didn’t have back in the day. The “beard” movement, for lack of a better term, has grown over the past few years and many more men are now worried about how to grow and care for their beards. If you are looking to grow a nice beard, the following tips will not only help you to grow one but maintain it properly, as well.
Do not trim it too early:
Even if your final goal is to have a short, neat beard, trimming it early can be a big mistake. You have to let it grow out first. Some experts say that an inch or two is the best length to start to giving shape to your beard, so, don’t be afraid to let it grow a bit. If you cannot go this long without a trim because of your job, then wait until the holiday season or your vacation. You will see that once it grows long enough, the look when you shape it will be the one you were hoping for.
Groom it properly:
Once your beard has grown to your desired length, take care of it properly. Washing it is one of the most important things you can do. However, you shouldn’t use your regular soap, rather treat your beard like you do your hair and wash it with a good shampoo. Try to use a moisturizing shampoo and a thick conditioner, as well. Let the conditioner work for a couple of minutes and then rinse it. This will keep your facial hair soft and your skin underneath moisturized.
Trim it constantly:
If you want a long beard, trim it every two months. This is like cutting off the split ends of your hair and it will help it to grow healthier. If you are looking to keep a short beard, trim it every two weeks or so. In order to get the best results, it is highly recommended to use a good tool. A good beard trimmer can do wonders for the look of your facial hair.
Keep it clean and healthy:
While a healthy diet may contribute to beard growth, there are no scientific studies that prove that. However, following a healthy diet plan is not bad idea to take care of your body in general. It can also help prevent unwanted acne around your beard. When you are eating, be sure to keep your food away from your beard. Food can hide inside your beard if it is long, so be careful when eating, you don’t want any disgusting surprises a few days later.
Not a common fact but some studies have shown that getting a good night’s sleep can help you grow a fuller, healthier beard faster. Why? Well, it hasn’t been confirmed but studies show that the men who got a good night’s sleep had better and stronger beards than those that sleep less than 8 hrs a day. Now you know! I bet you’ll be scheduling in a few extra hours of sleep this week!
