Genetics are primarily responsible for your ability to grow facial hair. DHT is the main cause and binds with the receptors on your follicles to stimulate growth around your cheeks, above your lip, and under your chin. Although your genetic makeup influences your ability to grow facial hair, there are some things that you can try to get a fuller beard. We introduce some simple hacks below that you can try at home to improve your beard growth results. 


Let it grow 


A mistake that so many men make when trying to grow a fuller beard is shaving or cutting it too early. It’s a myth that cutting your beard makes it grow back more quickly, so don’t fall into the trap of trying to take this shortcut. 


Even though you will have to suffer through that awkward mid-length that looks a bit messy, it’s essential if you want to grow a thicker beard in the long run. So, don’t be tempted to grab the clippers just yet, as you need to leave your beard hair to grow long and unruly to achieve that thicker beard that you desire. 


Try our beard booster 


Our beard booster is the ideal product if you’re looking to fill gaps in your facial hair and grow a thicker, fuller beard. Our serum contains a 3% Minoxidil solution, which is capable of stimulating the growth of your hair follicles, which can thicken your beard. 


Minoxidil is a clinically proven hair loss treatment and works by increasing blood flow to the affected areas, providing the hair follicles with the nutrients they need to grow and thrive. Most men start to see results after three months of using our beard booster, and it’s an excellent product to use as part of your daily beard care routine.


Improve your general health 


Beard hairs benefit from vitamins and minerals, just like the rest of your body. Following a diet that is rich in fruits, vegetables, and legumes ensures you take in the nutrients your entire body needs to thrive. 


When you eat the right things, you give the hair follicles on your face the best chance of growing to their full potential. Not only that but improving your diet will contribute to your enhanced overall wellbeing, which is something that everyone can get on board with. 


Consider a biotin supplement 


Although data on beard growth is limited at this stage, studies have found that biotin supplements can improve hair thickness. Most studies have focused on the results of biotin on the scalp, but it’s possible that biotin could be effective for stimulating the growth of your facial hair. 


This is because biotin plays an important role in the production of keratin, which is a major protein found in your skin, hair, and nails. So, while further research is required to say conclusively, a biotin supplement may help to stimulate the growth of a fuller and thicker beard. 


Look after your facial hair 


After going to the trouble of growing a beard in the first place, it’s really important to look after it. Choosing the right beard care tools will ensure your thick facial hair looks full and healthy. Just like you wash your hair regularly, make sure you use shampoo and conditioner to wash your beard. 


After washing your beard, apply some beard oil and gently massage it into your facial hair and use a moisturiser. Non-Comedogenic moisturisers are best as they don’t cause any skin irritation or discomfort. Once your beard starts growing out, you can then comb and groom it to your choosing, which is important if you want your full beard to look stylish.


So, while you can’t nurture a fuller and thicker beard overnight, you can take some simple steps toward improving the growth of your beard. Consistently applying our beard booster to your facial hair will stand you in good stead and help you cultivate a beard that looks and feels great.
