If you are thinking about changing your look but do not want to alter your hairstyle that much, consider growing a beard. For many men, beards make or break their appearance. Some consider it more important than their haircut. That is why we are here today. We are going to give you some of the best tips on how to not only grow a beard but also how to properly care for one.
One of the most important things you can do to get your beard growing nice and healthy is to get your vitamins. Whether they have a direct influence on hair growth or they play a role in hormone production, vitamins are clearly beneficial. Vitamin A helps with sebum oil production. Vitamin D helps with follicle maturation. Vitamin K has an important role in testosterone production. Lastly B2, B7, B9, and B12 deficiencies have been associated with hair loss so make sure to get plenty of your B vitamins.
Once you have grown your beard you need to know how to properly care for it. The best way to keep it healthy is to treat it like the hair growing on your head. Keep it clean from food particles, dirt, oils, etc. Wash it regularly with beard shampoo and make sure to get a good lather going. When drying make sure to pat your beard dry with a towel and use gentle movements to prevent causing damage.
Lastly, utilize beard oil and beard balm. Beard oil helps keep your beard looking fuller, soft, and helps promote hair growth. Beard balm is best for when your beard starts to get long. It is primarily used for conditioning and styling and is the right product if you are going for a heavier texture. Natural oil and balm are best because the more chemicals products have the greater the chance of irritating your skin and this could stunt hair growth.
Growing and maintaining a beard takes work but if you do it correctly, the outcome will be all worthwhile. For more information on growing a beard or maintaining your beard please reach out to us here at The Headgame.
