Here are some tips for natural beard growth

Are you struggling to grow your beard? Is it because of lack of commitment or patience? 

Well, as a wise person once said, “A watched pot never boils.” The rate of your beard growth is largely controlled by four things: genetics, levels of testosterone, DHT, and lifestyle habits.

The growth of a dense, full beard is tough and requires a bit of patience. Even with dense hair growth on your head and other areas, it doesn’t guarantee the same growth for your face. You need dedication and a good regimen. With these things, (almost) anyone can achieve a stylish and attractive beard.

Here are a few tips that may help!

Diet and Supplements

A healthy diet and supplements will provide safe, fast hair growth. Adding biotin and other B vitamins to your diet will improve the growth of hair and nails. Combine that with protein and saturated fats, and you’ll see a marked improvement in growth.

Home Remedies

Massaging your beard with a lemon and cinnamon mixture twice a week, as well as a coconut oil can help growth by providing such nutrients as Vitamin C, magnesium, citric acid, calcium, and flavonoids. As aforementioned in my earlier article, cleaning and moisturizing skin, and doing away with excess dead skin oil and dirt helps the follicles break through the skin.


Exercising on a regular basis will increase and improve blood circulation throughout the body, promoting hair growth with the continuous flow of hormones and nutrients to the follicles. This will also help rid the body of toxins in the skin. (Boost your face circulation with a massage)

Do Not Trim

Try to allow your young beard to grow for about four to six weeks before you consider trimming. Once you’ve adapted to this cycle, drastic facial hair will be realized. Trimming too early in the growth process will reduce the rate of growth.

Reduce Stress

I can’t emphasize enough how important a good sleep routine is for growth. Disturbing this routine can cause hair to fall from harmed skin cells. Stress is a leading cause of hair loss for many men, so reduce stress with sleep and exercise.

I look forward to seeing some of the post-hibernation beards! Don’t forget to visit for our growing list of products, and merchandise.

As always… Be bold, be bearded, and BE YOU!
