Your beard can be one of the most striking parts of your look, but not all beards are created equally.  Careful attention to treating your beard can help ensure that your beard stays thick and healthy while your skin underneath stays moisturized. These tips can help you understand how beards grow and identify ways and products that can help grow facial hair faster.

Do Beards Come In Thicker After Shaving?

This is one of the most well-known superstitions in all men's hygiene, and debunking it is a good first step in identifying ways for faster, better beard growth. The myth goes that each time a man shaves, his beard will come in thicker and faster the next time. In actuality, this is not the case. Generally speaking, beards grow very predictably each month, regardless of how often one shaves. This myth may come from the fact that young men tend to grow more facial hair over time due to an increase in male hormones as they grow. Realistically though, shaving will cause no real impact on how quickly your beard grows. All of that being said, quality shaving products like our Green Tea and Vitamin C Facial Shaving Creme can give you a cleaner, more even shave to help your beard come in more evenly when you're ready to grow out your facial hair.

Use High-Quality Beard Care Products

Your beard undergoes a great deal of stress over the course of the day. Through eating, wearing a mask, and being exposed to the elements, a beard takes on a lot of wear and tear. This is why it is important to clean your beard with the same care you use to clean the hair on your head. Products like this Pomegranate Face & Beard Wash use anti-oxidants to healthily clean your beard while also providing much-needed care to your face. Additionally, products like our 3 in 1 beard oil promote hair growth by moisturizing follicles. Upgrading the products you use to care for your beard will leave your skin feeling smoother and will give an extra shine to your beard. 

Focus on a High-Protein Diet

If you were looking for an excuse to add even more steak into your diet, you can now say that you're doing it to grow out your beard. Keratin is a protein that is a key component of hair. With more keratin, your beard growth will be improved, leading to a fuller appearance, stronger roots, and less shedding. If you eat a vegan or vegetarian diet, you don't need to worry. Other protein-rich foods such as nuts are just as effective at stimulating beard growth as meat is. 

A Healthy Lifestyle Never Hurts

Once you've gotten into a routine of keeping your beard clean with good products, an important step to beard health is to focus on your overall health. Exercising can lead to bigger muscles and better heart health, and it can also help promote better beards. The body simply functions better when it is being taken care of, and a result of this is that beards grow better as well. Sleep is just as important as exercise in terms of promoting good health, and a regular sleep routine can lead to faster beard growth. When you're feeling better, your beard will feel better too.

You want your beard to look the best it can be, and luckily for you, there are a lot of easy ways to help promote faster, stronger beard growth.
