Growing a big beard has always been the wish of many guys, and today, in particular, it is becoming stronger and more present all over the world. Just look at the number of barbershops spread across the cities and the growth of specific male cosmetics brands.
Until then, beauty! What sticks is that there are a lot of myths and stories around formulas to grow a beard lumberjack style.
What you need to do is adopt a healthy routine and start using specific products that stimulate the natural growth of the wires and provide more volume!
That’s what we’re going to talk about in this post! Would you like to start work?
Find out why your beard doesn’t grow?
There are several reasons for the beard not growing the way you always dreamed of, starting with the genetic issue. There are some guys who were born to be lumberjacks and others who need to run after, as much as possible!
There is also the possibility of illness, my brother!
Ever heard of alopecia? Well, it is characterized, precisely, by the fall of the wires, whether from the hair or from other parts of the body, including our beard, of course!
This is due to an imbalance of some vitamins and hormones in the body, caused by a number of reasons, such as stress, disorders, poor diet, among others, in this case, the most appropriate thing is to seek medical help, ok?
And finally, not being able to have a big beard can be linked to the lack of special care with the thread, with the skin, and with your own health as a whole.
And then, friend, it’s up to you! You can turn this soft picture if you want, and that’s what we’re going to show later. Come on!
Essential care for a great beard
As we said at the beginning, the secret of growing a beard is also related to taking care of your health. After all, your wires already grow naturally.
What you need is to know how to treat them correctly, provide more volume, and know some “hacks” to get rid of the imperfections that bother you.
Here are some tips!
Define a drawing
The first step in growing a big beard is in the design you choose. After all, it’s no use letting go and letting the wires grow anyway (unless the idea is to launch a Neanderthal style). Nothing against it, but choosing a cut makes it easier to trim the excesses and model where you really want to grow the biggest volume.
If you have difficulty doing this, don’t hesitate to go to a barbershop, even if your beard is still far from the ideal size. After all, the guys are professionals, they have experience, they already know the products and they can pass on fundamental tips.
Always trim the ends
Another practice that involves many myths and truths is to trim your beard with scissors. After all, does it help the beard to grow? In fact, what “boosts” the growth of wires is the health of the hair bulb (that white ball that is inside the pores of the skin).
It often happens that the end of the thread “breaks” or dries out, and then it starts to grow more slowly and without strength from that point on.
So, trimming these dry ends allows the wire to continue growing from a stronger and healthier point, you know?
Know how to wash your hair
Men’s cosmetics brands invest money and time for research, perfect recipes, and important ingredients, but the guy goes there and washes his beard with soap. Hey, seriously! Correct hygiene is essential for anyone who wants to grow a large and healthy beard, after all, beard shampoo is developed to meet the needs of the skin and wires.
So, without using your girlfriend’s shampoo or saving on body soap, because the effect won’t be the same, okay?
Take care of your skin too
Remember we talked about the importance of the hair bulb? Well, this is directly linked to skin health. After all, dryness or excess oiliness is the number 1 enemy of growth!
For this reason, there are products such as exfoliators that are used to clean the pores in depth (when opened, they help the hair to grow) and, in addition, provide a fundamental and pleasant moisturizing action. So set aside a little space in your toiletry bag and include this in the list!
Avoid itching and irritation
But how? Every bearded person asks that! After all, itching is normal, especially in the growth phase.
Despite this, there are ways to avoid this nuisance and even put an end to it once and for all. The secret is in the hydration and softness of the wires.
Well, we already mentioned the importance of shampoo, moisturizer, and exfoliating, which already help a lot in this process. However, to not have any sign of this itching, invest in good moisturizing oil and, of course, the indispensable balm, which even helps to give more volume and texture.
All these products are essential to keep your beard hydrated and soft (not to mention a flawless appearance) and help prevent such irritations. Scratching the skin can dry out and even pull out strands, things that are not very nice for those who want to have a big beard.
