Myths about growing a beard

There are so many things heard about the beard just like many popular things in our society. These myths can often discourage a man from allowing his facial hair to reach its full potential. The time is finally here to reveal the truth behind some beard myths that we might have heard.

  1. Shaving Speeds Up beard Growth

The myth that shaving speeds up hair growth has been around for as long as shaving. In fact, beards take a bit of time to grow. At the speed of a half-inch a month, it can seem like an eternity to grow a beard; so patience is the key here. Simply trimming the beard will only prolong the time it takes for your beard to reach its full potential.

  1. The Beard Will Become Itchy

This beard myth actually is part true, but the majority of guys simply believe the longer their facial hair grows, the itchier it is going to get. This is probably one of the biggest beard myths around. While it is true that the skin will become itchy during the first three weeks, once you get over the hump, those itch days are behind you. To remedy this, the Moroccan argan oil contained in The Gentleman's Beard Oil to relieve the itch.

  1. Only a Barber Can Properly Trim Your Beard

A barber has more experience at trimming facial hair. That is a fact, it's part of his job. Since there is no good reason why you cannot become the master of your own facial hair right in your bathroom, we don’t see why only he should touch your beard for a trimming. While this might be a new routine for you in the bathroom, with some patience and practice you can master the art of trimming your own beard perfectly. All you need is a good quality beard trimmer, a comb and a pair of new scissors to maintain your beard.

  1. The Beard Grows at the Same Rate 

When it comes to the growth of your facial hair the different areas of the face grow hair at different speeds. The area around the cheeks will tend to grow much slower than those along the chin line. The reason this myth continues to thrive is because most men trim the longer areas to keep a more uniform look as the beard fills in. This makes it appear that all the hair is growing at the same speed when in fact certain areas just spring to life faster.
