Minoxidil Beard Before and After

If you’re anything like me then you are bound to the expectation of instant gratification. You don’t want a good beard, you want a ridiculous one that grows overnight or whenever you feel like having it but as they say good things come to those who wait.

The the biggest problem men run into is that they can never grow a “full” beard, either it’s patchy with dense growth in some spots and barely any in others or it’s thin throughout. My post on Minoxidil for beard growth goes into detail on how to fix that and the proper protocol needed but if you’re not ready to take that step yet then let me help you with some facts you’ll need to know when growing a beard.

Keep It Healthy

I think this is a mistake that a lot of men make, myself included in the beginning. We think that a beard is supposed to feel like barbwire so therefor if we treat it like crap and throw some dirt on it from time to time then it will grow like a weed. The truth is that your facial hair will level look like the stuff on Fabio’s head so don’t worry about that but you do have to treat it right. Whether that means finding a beard oil and balm with the right essential oils for your skin type or simply by keeping it clean and conditioned. See my posts of eucalyptus and biotin for beard health.

Trim Your Hair

Now before you freak out and say “why the hell would I trim it if I’m trying to grow it”, I’m saying trim in the sense of keeping all the split ends under control. Whether you want to admit it or not your bead hair does get split ends and as emasculating as that sounds it’s true so you have to keep it under control. A biweekly very mild trim will take care of this and keep your beard growing on track.

Don’t Mess With It

There are going to be times when you want to just say the hell with it and shave it all the way off but trust me it will get better. Those awkward stages of grow will pass, you know the point where you look worse than the homeless guy that begs under the underpass. On average you will only have a 3 week window of awkward looks and grimaces from old ladies until your beard starts looking like something you can be proud of. Stay the course my friends, it’s well worth it.
