Before you say you say you can’t grow a beard, read our article about the Top 6 Beard Growing Mistakes (And How to Avoid Them). Let us tell you what NOT to do if you’re trying to get your facial hair game going.
1. Being impatient for your beard to grow
Beards on average grow about ½ an inch per month. But there are many factors that go into natural growth rate. Some parts of our beards will grow faster then other parts. In addition to this, men’s beards continue to develop into their 30’s so if you have a patchy beard in your 20’s, don’t worry. You still have time to reach your full potential. This is why we recommended waiting a full 2 months to grow in your beard.
2. Letting your beard go unhinged
You would think that not trimming your bear would let be key to beard growth, but quite the opposite is true. Even in the early stages, you need to trim your beard. As your beard grows in at an naturally an uneven rate, it will naturally look thinner at the ends. Trimming reduces the appearance of a patchy beard, by evening out the length. You can use a pair of barber scissors, shaping tools and beard combs to keep thing fresh.
3. Not taking care of the neckline
To keep an eye on growth and have your facial hair looking thick, be sure to groom your neckline. We recommend shaving everything below the Adam’s Apple but not so high that the line lifts enough the jaw when you smile.
4. Washing your Beard incorrectly
You should be washing your facial hair with shampoo and conditioner specifically created for it. Using other cleansing products will strip the hair and skin of its natural oil, slowing down growth. Look for special products such as Zeus Beard shampoo and conditioner to promote healthy growth.
5. You’re not using a beard oil or beard balm
Just like the hair and skin on our heads, it is important to keep our beards and face clean and hydrated. Without proper moisture your beard will be dry, itchy and full of breakage. Use a beard oil and beard balm to tame the beard and treat the skin underneath. Products such as Zeus Beard Oil and Zeus Beard Balm help tame the beard while keeping it healthy, ultimately promoting faster growth.
6. Comparing Your Beard to Others
Every person is unique and this every beard is unique. Regardless of what your facial hair status is, you should be proud of who you are and the beard you are able to grow. Remember that although genetics do play a part in beard growth, you still have the power to motivate your follicles in growing in the best way they can. In the end it’s your choice to put your best face forward and rock what makes you happy.
