There are a number of different benefits to having facial hair or beard, one of which is a general sign of masculinity. Having facial hair or beard has also been seen as a sign of fertility. Also, by having facial hair or a beard, you’ll also notice that people will sometimes view you with a sense of leadership or wisdom. One added benefit of having facial hair or beard is I instantly will look older if you have a young face. This added facial hair adds a complete different level of maturity.
At the beginning of first letting your beard grow, you might notice a few things happening. One of the first things that some gentlemen will notice when they first start to let their beard or facial hair grow in is that it starts to look a little bit patchy. Here’s the deal, beards take time to grow and everybody is different.
During the first month of not shaving, you might start to notice that your facial hair will grow in without the patchiness. This, for a lot of gentlemen, will be happening within that first month period. A month is average but please remember that we are all different and it might take a little bit longer before you start to see a fully formed beard.
Itchiness, it’s the worst. I promise you, it’s extremely frustrating. Having coarse hair, your significant other will not like it. I remember when I first started growing facial hair and I was giving a hug to a relative and I nearly stabbed them in the face by how coarse and tough my hair is feeling. Also, you might have to deal with a few onlookers and people who just can’t keep their comments to themselves about how you’ve lost yourself or you look a little rough around the edges but after you made it through those awkward weird stages at first beginning to let your beard grow in, there are some steps you can take to make sure that it always looks healthy.
Number one, wash it regularly. Keep your beard hydrated but don’t over wash it.
Number two, begin applying beard oil. Stuff is incredible! I love this stuff! The beard oil helps add a shine and a softness to the touch to your overall beard.
Next, you can always use a beard balm. Now, a beard balm is something that’s going to be really beneficial to somebody who hasmedium to a longer length beard. The beard balm can also aid in moisture retention.
Next, use a proper beard comb or brush. We don’t recommend using the same brush or comb you might have used on your head. Typically, the products you use on your head shouldn’t be used on your face or vice versa.
Here are some of the reasons why your hair might appear darker or denser in certain areas. Now, for those of you who might feel that your hair looks a little bit thin, if you happen to have lighter colored hair, it might appear thinner on your face than it would on someone who happens to have darker hair. And then check the hair on your head, as well, is the hair on your head thick or thin? Thicker hair always tends to look a little bit fuller. Now, there’s no known way to make your hair grow faster but you can do things to make it look a little bit fuller and a little bit thicker.
Don’t give up! Remember, give it time half patience and you will get there.
