Slow beard growth

One of the most common misconceptions about beard growth is that it grows more or less at the same rate as the hair on your head. This is not true. In fact, it grows faster! For many men, this is excellent news, however, some are not so lucky. There are many reasons why your beard may not grow as thick or as fast as you would want it to. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to speed up the process a bit. 

What exactly can cause a beard to grow slowly or to stop growing? Let's look at a few reasons: 

Hormones can cause your beard to grow slowly 

Hormones responsible for beard growth are dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and testosterone. DHT can affect your beard's density while testosterone defines its thickness. Not everyone has the same levels of these hormones and those with lower levels may experience slower beard growth. 

A poor diet can cause your beard to grow at a slow pace 

It takes some calories (the good ones!) to grow a long healthy beard. If your diet lacks the right nutrition and number of calories, you may suffer from slow beard growth. Just like your skin absorbs the goodness from what you eat, beard growth also starts on the inside.  

Breakage can cause your beard to stop growing 

Just like the hair on your scalp, beard hair breakages can cause a halt to its growth. Breakages are usually caused by fragile and brittle hair due to a poor diet or using products with harmful ingredients. 

Split ends can cause your beard to grow slower 

Split ends is a common cause of slow beard growth. Split ends happen at the end of hair and usually resembles an unravelled rope. There are plenty of causes for split ends, but the most common are exposure to extreme weather (especially the harsh South African sun!) and using high-chemical products. 

How to improve beard growth 

Growing a beard can be a very rewarding experience – if you enjoy healthy, thick growth! If not, you may be wondering how you can grow your beard faster? Here are a few tips you can follow to get those beard hairs to sprout: 

Take care of your beard 

Beard grooming should be one of your main priorities when you want to improve beard growth. The key to a clean, healthy and well-groomed beard is high-quality beard products. While there are a couple of beard growth products on the market, it is still important to invest in the basics: Beard washbeard conditioner and beard oil. Using these as part of your daily routine will improve the quality of your beard hair.

Take supplements 

While improving your diet should still be the number one improvement to a healthy beard, certain supplements can further boost hair growth. Vitamins A, B, C and D, Irons, Zinc and Protein are all nutritional additions that can improve beard growth

Improve your diet 

Taking care of your hair and skin should start from the inside. Living from takeaways and fatty, fried food, won't give you a healthy, thick beard! Here are a few foods you should be adding to your grocery list: 

  • Brazilian Nuts. These nuts contain selenium, an important mineral in boosting hair growth. 
  • Eggs. Eggs contain biotin and protein, essentials for healthy hair growth. 
  • Raisins. This snack is a provider of boron, a mineral that promotes beard growth. 
  • Fish. The omega-3 fatty acids in fish are essential to normal hair growth.
  • Beef. High in saturated fats, which is essential for testosterone production, beef is a great option for healthy beard growth. 

Tip: If you want to get the best nutrients, go organic. Organic products don't contain any harmful additives. Luckily, South Africa has plenty of organic stores – find one near you.

From investing in a beard growth kit to changing your diet, there are many ways you can improve beard growth. Whatever you choose, remember that between all the ups and downs of your beard-growing journey, your beard is a part of your identity – so, wear it with pride.

  • We had everything we wanted as a family except good health. I had to do this for the benefit of those who still doubt the efficacy of genuine herbal medicines just as my dad doubted the moment i came with the news of Dr. WHITE been able to cure Herpes Virus. Unlike Mum, dad is a (RACIST) who never believed something good could come from the black nation. I was beautiful and adventurous but when I had herpes infection spreading in my body like wide fire at a time Dad was battling HIV it was like a dark cloud covering my family. For many years i suffered pain and shame. I decided to surf the internet for alternative cure which lead me to Dr. WHITE whatsapp +2349091844595 a powerful but humble herbalist and healer who promised to cure me and kept to his words. This man is another Daddy from a different nation. At first I was skeptical, I asked him both relevant and irrelevant questions but he was patient to prove my medical doctors and dad wrong who said no cure. Haven made every arrangement; he prepared and sent the cure to me through Courier express service which I received at door step. In 2weeks of using his cure my symptoms disappeared and I was well again though the prescription was for a month. All thanks to Dr. White who put integrity and human sympathy above material things. I had read many testimonies of those who benefited from Dr. WHITE medicines, this actually prompted me to write him but today, I’m herpes free and Dad is HIV negative haven seen my case and got convinced to use herbal cure. Heavenly thanks to Dr. WHITE for restoring our Joy. Carlito Savannah

  • I’m Jason, a Switzs national. Your greatest enemy could be fear, uncertainty, the mistakes probably made by others in the past or even stories told by others who never made real efforts in quest for better health. At 39 i have almost had my dreams shattered as I had lived with HIV for 6years due to a month relationship with an old high school lover. All thanks to Dr. WHITE through whom i was cured and my light was rekindled again. I was devastated, I stopped dreaming, hope was lost but my decision to try herbal remedy after an online research gave me life again. So when your Medical Doctors says no cure for viral infections just say to hell with you. Today I have carried out series of HIV confirmation test and it all proved I am clean. Save yourself from HIV, Herpes, HPV, Hepatitis and others by contacting Dr. White on Whatsapp 00234-9091-844595. His medicines have no side effects, Can be sent to you through courier, No hidden charges and are taken for few weeks for complete cure. I have posted this in many forum and lots of people and called me to say thank you. Together we can save ourselves and love once from unending antiretroviral drugs with so many side effects.

  • I TESTED POSITIVE FOR HSV-2 A FEW MONTHS AGO.
    At first, Yes, I was devastated thinking I have an incurable STD for life. After doing hours of research I quickly realized genital herpes is a filthy parasite that just likes to hide in your body. Yes, There’s no “medical cure” but that doesn’t mean your body can’t get rid of it. I literally flush it out of my system with the help of Doctor Azuka, A natural herbal medicine which I ordered after doing some research. And now I’m HSV-2 negative, I never believed it until my doctor finally gave me the test results and behold I was HSV-2 free. I’m so glad that I found you, Doctor Azuka. Thanks so much for your goodness I’m grateful. You can also get your help from him through his
