Men have had an ability, nay, a duty since the dawn of time. We may go where we please, love who we will, but above all else, we must grow our beards. As a doe-eyed child, did you once look up to the skies and shout “Tell me how to grow a beard!” Don’t worry, we don’t just show you the most popular hairstyles here, we also cover beards.
Well, it may be years (or decades) later, but I’ve come to answer your call. If you want people to look upon you with reverence and ladies to look upon you with something entirely different in their minds (if you get my drift), then it’s time to explore the secrets behind growing and sculpting your very own symbol of manliness!
The Four Weeks Rule
Many men will try to scorn their rights by assuming they have patchy or thin facial hair, but they are wrong! It takes roughly four weeks for facial hair to grow out enough to make a decision.
Commitment is Key!
Just like the guy in the picture above, you need to play it cool. This isn’t something anyone does overnight; it requires commitment!
You’re going to need two things: beard oil and a rock-solid beard trimmer. Don’t start using the second tool until after you’ve passed the four-week mark.
Does Shaving Make it Grow?
Ever heard that saying that if you shave more often, your facial hair will grow thicker? It is WRONG! Let your beard grow, period.
A Level Playing Field
No one grows a beard faster than anyone else, it’s a fact. All humans grow hair at a rate of half an inch per month, so don’t think you can make magic happen, it’s a level playing field.
By making some lifestyle choices like exercising, eating right, and taking supplements, you can make your hair grow in thicker which will help you grow a beard faster! The big player here is testosterone; the more you have, the better the beard.
Our genetics decide how beards will grow by about 85%. That other 15% can be helped with things like minoxidil or facial hair transplants. The last option is real, but it’s expensive.
Time Grows All Beards
In the end, time is on your side; the longer you can hold out, the bigger and thicker your beard will be. Things like lifestyle choices, and some good genetics will also help.
Never Give Up!
Some of today’s most popular hairstyles like the undercut are being sported with beards like these. It’s time to wrangle in the ladies and amp up your manliness! Grow it long and grow it strong guys.
