The beard is a symbol of manliness which is associated with power, leadership, masculinity, and wisdom. Growing a thicker beard can be a challenge for many guys because in most of the cases once the beard reaches a certain point, itchiness can become so out of control that they trim or shave the beard to early. Also, other factors including a poor diet and improper skin care techniques can make the beard looks thin and weak. Here is the best way to grow a beard.
The Four-Week Beard Rule
In fact, many guys don’t ever grow a beard because they think their beard is too patchy and it will not give the full beard appearance. First, you have to let your beard grow for at least four weeks because then most beards start to connect and you will be able to evaluate your beard’s true status. For many guys, the beard begins itching around the two to three-week mark, and they let this consume them to the point they either shave or trim before the hair reaches thick status.
Remember that the trick to growing a thicker beard is to be able to get past the for-week mark. Don’t get disappointed if you see patchiness and think that the hair will never fill in gaps, be patient and wait the four weeks to pass.
The main thing you need to understand is that growing a thicker bread is a commitment. You must get the stubble phase to allow the beard to take a shape and grow more rapidly. After that, it only requires basic grooming for maintenance. Another important point to consider is to not stat shaping your bread too soon. You need to give your beard time to grow to a respectable length and show you it’s “real lines”.
After four weeks, you are free to choice to let your beard grow on its own and reach its full potential or start to sculpting, shaping, and grooming your beard. Letting it grow more naturally will earn your more respect in the bearded community, while grooming will make it look more presentable.
If you choose to groom your beard, it will be better to use a proper beard trimmer and scissors. Consider using a beard oil to help make it look healthier and younger. By following this four-weeks rule you will have a thick beard and you will be surprised by how good it actually look.
