The two beard-related questions I'm asked the most are 1) is there's anything you can actually do to encourage beard growth? and 2) what are the best products for growing your beard faster?
While human hair grows an average of half an inch per month, there are things you can do to encourage beard growth and prevent conditions that slow down your growth such as breakage, beard split ends, beard dandruff, and ingrown facial hairs.
To successfully grow a long beard, it's important to consume the right vitamins and nutrients that your body needs in order to 1) grow at a normal, healthy rate and 2) prevent the whiskers that you've already grown from breaking.
1. Shampoo your beard with a clarifying beard shampoo that contains tea tree oil.
Why tea tree oil? It’s a natural disinfectant that exfoliates and removes dead skin and build-up, preventing beard dandruff, acne, and ingrown facial hairs.
2. Use a hydrating beard conditioner after shampooing your beard.
After using beard shampoo, apply some beard conditioner and rinse. The beard conditioner will soften your beard and make it less likely to break unlike just using beard shampoo. And since you want to grow a beard faster, it’s critical that your facial hairs be soft and healthy so they don’t break and cause beard split ends.
3. Moisturize your beard with an extra strength beard growth serum.
Using a high quality beard oil is essential to healthy beard growth. Why? Because a dry, brittle beard is prone to breakage. Just like the hair on your head, split ends in your beard cause the cuticle to fray, essentially damaging and cutting off the hair that you've grown.
Beard and Company's Extra Strength Beard Growth Serum is the best blend of essential oils formulated to encourage beard growth plus tamanu oil, a Polynesian oil derived from the seeds of the tamanu tree. It's packed with all the antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, proteins, and vitamins you need to grow a healthy beard.
Following these 3 simple steps every day will encourage your beard to grow faster by keeping it clean, exfoliated, moisturized, enhanced with vitamins and nutrients, and free of problems that cause beard breakage.
