1. Be patient, and let your hair grow on your face
The primary factor in how fast (and how full) your beard grows is your genetic profile, and there’s not much you can do about it. While you may take steps to help the cycle, you should also agree that your beard grows at its own rate and in its own way.
2. Wash your face twice a day with hair follicles unblocked.
Wet warm water on your face. If your beard hasn’t begun yet, rub in a gentle face cleanser. Use a gentle shampoo on just the facial hair if you have a beard coming in. Rinse off the cleanser and/or shampoo with cool, clean water, then pat dry with soft towel on your hair. Do this every morning and at night. Your genetic profile is the primary factor in how fast (and how full) your beard grows and there is not much that you can do about it. While you may be taking steps to help the process, you should also accept that your beard is growing at its own speed and in its own way.
3. Rub your face twice a day to make follicles relax.
Use your fingertips to apply firm but not painful pressure on your forehead, then rub over your beard-growing area in small circles. Do the massage twice a day, for about 10 minutes.
4. Exfoliate your face once per week.
Wash your face with a gentle cleanser or shampoo as usual, but rinse with warm water and leave your skin damp. Massage the exfoliant gently over your whole face (including any hair on your skin), then rinse it thoroughly with clean water and pat your face dry
5. Pamper your growing beard with beard oil or softener
While you should be wary of any product claims made for stimulating beard growth, beard oils and beard softeners may, in fact, provide some benefits. Keeping your beard hairs soft and hydrated may encourage slightly faster growth.
6 Try homemade beard-stimulating recipes
The supporting evidence for beard stimulators is, as with most home remedies, at best limited. However, they’re not likely to cause any harm, so consider trying one of the following or both:
- Create a thin paste from 1 US tbsp (15 ml) of fresh-squeezed lime juice and 1 US tbsp (15 g) of ground cinnamon. Apply it in a thin layer on your hair, leave for 20-30 minutes, then rinse it away and use your normal face cleaner. Use this paste 1-2 times a day but stop if irritation is noticeable.
- Mix 3 US tbsp (45 g) of dried mustard leaves with 2 fl oz (59 ml) of amla oil, until a smooth paste is produced. Apply it over your beard in a thin layer, leave for 15-20 minutes, then rinse it off and wash your face with your usual cleanser. Refrigerate any leftover paste for 2-3 days, and use it everyday.
