5 Tips on How to Grow a Thicker beard

The thicker the beard the more respect you command, so it’s no surprise that men all over the world are working hard on their manly manes daily.  Growing a thicker beard, however, can be a challenge for many men for a variety of reasons. The problem for most men is that once the beard reaches a certain point, itchiness can become so out of control that they trim or shave the beard to early.  Mix this up with a poor diet and improper skin care techniques and the beard is destined to remain thin and weak.

In an effort to help you grow the best beard you can grow we have compiled 5 great tips to get you on your way to that perfect Beard.  All you need to get on track is 4 weeks of consistency. The sad truth is most guys do things to impede the growth of the beard long before it reaches its full potential. For many guys the beard begins itching around the two to three-week mark, and they let this consume them to the point they either shave or trim before the hair reaches that thick status.

The reason the hair is itching is a combination of two things. The first is poor grooming habits, basically the skin is not being moisturized so it can withstand the hair follicles piercing through.  Secondly, as new hairs grow, they can cause a  slight irritation in the skin that will subside in a few days, but most guys give up before they reach that point.

The trick to growing a thicker beard is to be able to get past that four-week mark. Even if you see patchiness and believe the hair will never fill in the gaps, you need to learn to be very patient when it comes to beard growth.  It is only at four weeks that most beards will start to connect and fill in better…at that point you will be in a better position to evaluate your unique standpoint. The bottom line here is that growing a thicker beard is a commitment on your part, you must get past the stubble phase to allow the beard to take shape and grow more rapidly.  To help you along the way, try using a good quality beard oil.  This will moisturise and soften the skin enough so that you can bear the growing process.

To Grow a thicker beard faster…try these 5 tips.   You are welcome.

1. Start Exercising

The first thing you can do to improve the quality of your beard is exercising on a regular basis. Yes it may sound odd…what is pumping iron going to do for my facial hair.  Well this is the solid foundation in which you need to build upon to grow thicker hair, so start by losing some of that excess weight you have.

This will in turn increase testosterone, which promotes healthy follicles and hair growth. The exercise also increases blood circulation which provides all the nutrients the hair needs to grow thicker and stronger.

Reducing Stress
When you are stressing about everything in your life, you increase the cortisol in your body. This will have a negative impact on testosterone development. The stress also can constrict the blood vessel, making it more challenging for the nutrients in the blood to get to the hair follicles.

Getting Your Rest
In order to increase testosterone in the body, your body simply needs to sleep. Sleeping helps the body to regenerate testosterone, especially if you are getting at least 8 hours sleep a night. If you are getting enough sleep, your stress will decrease, and your facial hair will benefit.

Improve Your Diet
A vitamin-rich diet consists of eating more vegetables. Also, your hair is a protein filament, so the more protein-rich foods you’re consuming the healthier your beard will look.

Some of the foods you should incorporate into your diet are eggs, nuts, and kale. These will increase testosterone production and give your beard that luxurious thicker appearance.

Taking Supplements
Stimulating the growth of facial hair can be as simple as taking supplements in addition to a well-balanced diet. It is important to know that copper, zinc, magnesium, vitamin B, iron, vitamin D, and vitamin E all play crucial roles in growing thicker hair.

The sad truth is most men do not get enough of these in their diet. Incorporating supplements into the diet will have a positive impact on your facial hair, as you will begin to see the quality of the hair improve after changing your diet.

And that’s it.  Here’s to getting that thinker lustrous beard in no time.

OUR GUIDE TO A MINIMALIST BEARD

The Captain’s Beard was founded on big beards but we also know that huge beards might not be for everyone, and that’s cool. Maybe you want to go the route of the tidy minimal beard and skip the complicated styling and be done with the bushy bulk. So if you’re going to do it small, do it right!

KEEP IT SHORT

The real key is the length. Too short and you’re working with a corporate beard, Too long and you’re back to that epic proportions that requires too much maintenance for you. This style will still require trims and shape-ups to keep it looking awesome, but they are fewer and farther between, and don’t need to be overly complicated. You’re really just going to need a good pair of trimming scissors or a beard trimmer, and aim to maintain the natural shape and length, take off any wiry hairs that are sticking out, and cut down the split ends and fly-aways. Nothing fancy or complicated about it.

This also means your basic grooming routine for getting your beard under control is going to be easy and quick

The mustache is also key here; you’re not shooting for a big handlebar or anything that will need styling. You’re going for a natural mustache, which means you’re going to let it fall naturally into place, and keep it trimmed and neat

LIMITED PRODUCTS

Beard care products are badass and crucial. We should know. But if you’re going the way of the minimalist, you don’t need much to get the job done.

Our recommendation? Get yourself a good beard oil, and let it ride.

If that isn’t the definition of minimalist grooming, well what is? Rocking this style isn’t for everyone, but if you’re looking to hang on to your beard and cut down on the clutter, it might be time to go back to basics.
