5 Outrageously Simple Steps To Make A Beard Grow Thicker and Faster

Each Fall men around the world observe “Movember“, which is a fun wake-up call for men’s health awareness. During the month of November observers raise money for health awareness and cancer research by shaving on November 1 and growing out their mustaches for the entire month.

Many men have taken up Movember, or “No Shave” November as a great month to grow out all types of facial hair.

Often, growing a full beard at a fast rate alludes men. Many are frustrated that their beards grow inconsistently. Although these tips can’t change a man’s genetics, they are 3 outrageously simple ways a man can learn to grow his beard thicker and faster.

How to Make Your Beard Grow Thicker and Faster

First: Sleep

That’s right. It’s as simple as that. No need to stress over which Rogain product you should use. In fact, stress will subdue your ability to grow full, healthy hair.

If you want your facial hair to grow thicker and faster, sleep. Getting into a adequate sleep pattern is essential to all of life’s processes. Include bodily processes. Getting a full nights sleep on a consistent basis provides your cells to reproduce fuller, healthier hair.

Second: Eat

A nourished man is a nourished beard. Men must feed their muscles. And their beards.

If a man desires to make their beard grow thicker and faster, they’ve got to feed that thing.

It sounds like common sense, but feeding a beard with nourishing protein-rich foods is vital to increasing its thickness. Without the right nourishment, a man will have to stay complacent with a scraggly, wiry face.

Eat eggs, fish, and beans. And while you’re at it, reduce stress in your life.

Third: Stress Less

From an expert:

“Stress can indeed cause hair loss, particularly diffuse hair loss and telogen effluvium.”

Fourth: Down Your Vitamins

Apparently the verdict is still out if ingesting vitamins in pill form really does as much help as vitamin manufacturers claim.

Regardless, dermatologist Dr. Jeffrey Benabio recommends taking 2.5 mg of biotin a day. Other vitamins and minerals that may help you grow your beard faster and thicker are vitamins B6, C and E as well as beta-carotene, nettle and flax seed oil.*

*I’m no specialist, so you should talk to your doctor before changing any supplement or diet routine.

Fifth: Work With What You’ve Got

A man can’t expect to become The Wolverine or Ron Swanson overnight. They’ve got to “Work with what you’ve got.” Not every square millimeter of my beard grows thick and fast. If a beard has some patches, let it be. If the beard has been given a month to grow in, go ahead and do a mild trim to even things out.
