When first growing a beard, do you have patchy bald areas around your cheeks? If so, you're not alone. 

It's quite common to have patchy areas in your beard. So how do you grow hair in a patchy beard? 

Easy: with the right beard trimming techniques and beard care products.

First, you want to be sure that you're keeping your beard in top shape. Don't use harsh regular shampoos in your beard that will strip it of its natural protective oils; instead, use a gentle beard shampoo no more than a few times per week.

Once your beard starts coming in and you develop the patchy area, start trimming the longer areas of your beard in small increments at a time, leaving the patchy area alone.

The idea is to let the patchy areas grow and catch up to your longer areas while trimming those long areas back. 

The best way to blend the areas together is to use a beard balm. Our beard growth balm is great for blending these areas, making your beard appear fuller, and even encouraging beard growth due to its all-natural blend of nutrients, omega-3 fatty acids and proteins.

After showering, we recommend using beard growth serum and gently distributing the oil throughout your beard with a sawcut Kent beard comb that won't snag or break your beard.
