As fads change and different looks come and go, a good beard is always in style. Men who grow beards often want tips on how to make them fuller, with more volume. There are some things you can do to make your beard look thicker. But first, let’s look at the characteristics of the beard:
- Thickness-describes how thick your beard is. You measure this by how long the hairs are. They don’t have to be too long-usually 1 to 2 inches will make for a great looking beard.
- Fullness- is how many hairs you have in your beard.
- Vibrancy- is how “lively” your beard is; how it stands on your face.
The fullness of a beard is often attributed to genetics, so you must start out with good genes to grow a great beard. But even if you don’t have the best genetic profile, there are some things you can do to enhance your facial hair.
1. Patience and Fight the Itch
As a beard grows in, your face will begin to itch. It takes time to grow a full beard so to avoid shaving when you itch, try some Vitamin C serum on your face and your beard. This will help condition the skin and make your beard healthy.
2. Find a Good Beard Oil
A good beard oil will help your beard stay smooth and lessen the itch. It is important to find one that has Jojoba oil because this ingredient is important to a healthy beard. Beard oils are usually unscented, so they don’t change the way yours smells but it may help eliminate any lingering bad odors. An organic beard oil helps to moisturize and shine your beard.
3. Keep Your Beard Trimmed Regularly
A quality trimmer is a necessary tool for you to own. You can trim once or twice a week to keep your hairs the same length and groomed. Never trim after a shower because your hair appears longer and thicker when wet and you could trim too much.
4. Daily Vitamins
There are daily vitamins that can help you grow fuller and healthier facial hair. Biotin is one such vitamin that you can take daily. Also, E, B1, B6 and citrus flavonoids are great for healthy hair. There is also a product called Beard Grow XL that some people claim does wonders for a full beard. Each person is different though, so you will have to use it to determine if it works for you.
5. Monitor Your Diet and Water
Your diet does affect how your body looks, including your hair. Try to eat a lot of leafy greens, proteins and fruit. Stay away from fried or greasy foods. You will be surprised at how much it can affect you. Staying hydrated is important too. Water is your best bet and what your body craves. Sodas and sugary drinks don’t react well with our bodies natural balance. If you eat healthy and stay hydrated, you will see an improvement in your beard and overall appearance.
So, as you can see-there are real things you can do to help you grow a healthy and full beard. A well-groomed man is always attractive and as you make progress with your beard, you are sure to get more second looks from the ladies. Beards are like the other parts of your daily grooming-you can condition and trim to put your best face forward. Grooming is a daily task that is worth the bother. Eat your veggies and drink plenty of water and you may soon have the fullest beard on the block.
