Grow a Thicker Beard

The beard. A symbol of manliness. Throughout history, beards were always associated with power, wisdom, leadership, masculinity, and virility.

The wise old man from the movies? Always had a beard. The tribe leader? The king? A full-bearded man on the throne surrounded by clean shaven subordinates.

Having a beard gives a powerful statement: “I am a man”.
From a psychological point of view, it’s a sign of maturity. And from the female’s perspective; attractiveness and ability to father children.

Do you know what is the “best” way to grow a beard?

You are probably reading this because you believe your beard lacks the density to fill up.

However, most beards never come into existence, because the individual underestimates his beard’s actual potential.

In other words, many don’t ever grow a beard because they falsely believe their beard is too patchy — that it does not have enough coverage to connect and give the appearance of a ‘full beard’.

You must let your beard grow for at least four weeks. Only then, most beards start to connect. Only after a decent amount of time, you can evaluate your beard’s true status.

 

Commit. Growing a beard is a commitment. Growing a stubble is easy. It’s just a few day’s wait. After that, it only requires basic grooming for maintenance.

As for growing a beard, do not touch it for at least four weeks. Many are surprised by how thick it actually is.

Don’t start shaping your beard too soon either — you will most likely cut off more than you’ve wanted. You need to give your beard time to grow to a respectable length and show you it’s “real lines”.

After four weeks, you have two choices. You can continue to grow it into a majestic and natural ‘yeard’, or you can groom and shape it. Going for a ‘yeard’ will earn you more respect (particularly in the bearded community), while grooming will make it more presentable. The latter is best done by using a proper beard trimmer and scissors.

Don’t forget beard oil. Start applying it as soon as you start growing a beard. It makes it look healthier, younger and extra kissable (same goes for your skin).

Many fail to understand the 4-week rule. It’s the reason so many beards never come into existence in the first place.

However, most of you reading this guide are here because you know you can’t grow a full beard. You are aware of the lack the density and it’s noticeable.

There may be at least one major thing going for you though. You most likely don’t suffer from male pattern baldness (or ever will).

Those who are capable of growing a beard since a very young age are prone to hair loss. Only a few lucky bastards can grow a full, connected beard while never get to suffer from MPB.

One last thing. Don’t fall for the: “shaving it will make it grow faster” myth.

You grow a beard by letting it grow, not by shaving it.

But enough rambling. Back to the point. You are here to grow a beard faster and thicker.

 

For the matter of growing a beard “faster”, you need to understand one thing. All human hair grows at the same rate. (Which is about half an inch or 1,25 cm per month).

I know you’ve all got that friend who can “grow a beard in two weeks”. It does not mean his beard grows faster; it just becomes apparent sooner.

There are three factors that give the illusion of growing a beard faster:

  • Color (darker hair appears thicker)
  • Diameter (some have large, thick hairs; others have fine, thin hairs)
  • Density (thicker beards fill up faster and so appear to grow quicker)

We can’t make (facial) hair grow faster — but we can make it thicker.

When contemplating to grow a thicker beard first consider your age, always.

If you are a teenager and it’s patchy, expect a lot of thickness coming in the next few years. No need to worry yet.

If you are in your twenties, know that your beard will continue to develop, although at a slower rate. Produce fertile conditions for your beard to grow. Eat healthy, exercise, get a lot of rest, manage stress, take a multivitamin.

For something more high-level — try using the growth serum. It will work, but effectiveness varies with each individual.

If you are in your thirties and you still don’t have any facial hair whatsoever, it’s not in your genes. Nothing will work — save an immense response from minoxidil or a facial hair transplant.
