How to Grow a Beard
Growing a beard takes time and patience. You might simply wake up one day and decide that you want to get rid of the little growth you might have. However, there are things you can do to make this process easier and more bearable. We at 5-Minute Crafts will show you how.
1. Set a goal.
Think of how your beard grows before you have your mind set on a goal. It’ll impact your final style, and it might not end up as you’d like it to. Instead, be realistic about your growth pattern, and let it influence your desired style.
2. Have patience.
Your beard might need time to fill in (around 30 days). It’s important to be patient and not give up.
3. Keep it trimmed.
Once you hit the 30-day mark, make sure to trim your neckline. For those other stray hairs, you can use a pair of scissors to trim them.
4. Maintain your beard.
To keep the itch at bay, as well as beard dandruff — keep your beard moisturized. You can use either a moisturizer specific for the job or beard oil. It’ll help soften your beard while hydrating the skin underneath it.
5. Don’t wash your beard every day.
It’ll help your beard to build up natural oils. If you wash your beard every day, it’ll be stripped away by soap, and your beard might become dry and abrasive.
6. Brush it out.
Doing this might help exfoliate the skin underneath. In the long run, it can also help you tame your beard more easily. Brushing it will distribute its natural oils all over the beard and even prevent the hairs from breaking or frizzing.
7. Stay healthy.
Even though this might be a general tip — it directly impacts your beard’s growth. By getting enough sleep, exercising, and even eating healthy, the chances of your beard growing healthy and thick might increase.
