While it's our goal to build your beard knowledge repertoire throughout November, we know you're probably already anxious to get going. After all, part of the fun of "No Shave November" is growing out the best beard among your friends or co-workers.
Without further ado, here are three tips to kickstart your beard growth:
1. BE PATIENT!
"No Shave November" may only be one month long but that doesn't mean you should expect to go from peach fuzz to Gandalf in 30 short days. While it's tempting to continue comparing yourselves to the men around you who seem to spring up beards overnight, don't be so hard on yourself. Instead, make the next month about your personal beard growth journey.
Most hair experts estimate that beards can grow around a half inch a month on average. So, if you're planning on boasting a super long look, it may take until next "No Shave November" to achieve your desired results.
2. EAT HEALTHY!
Thankfully, eating healthy doesn't mean just gnawing on a piece of lettuce daily. You can easily achieve a balanced diet with an array of tasty foods.

3. GIVE YOUR BEARD SOME TLC!The hair you're dealing with is on your chin instead of the top of your head. However, this doesn't mean you should neglect it when it comes to products. Like the hair on your head, it needs love too. And, no we don't mean slapping on one of those 5-in 1 shampoo, conditioner, body wash, car degreaser, shoe polish creams.
Whether you're growing a new beard or expanding your collection, the most bang for your buck and your beard comes with buying a beard set. The Zeus Beard Ultimate set has everything from scissors and grooming tools to shower products and beard balm and oil.
