When growing a beard, most men get to a stage where they wish their facial hair would grow faster. Some men wrestle with a beard that does not grow in evenly. Patches of hair may grow slower than others, causing the beard to be spotty and uneven. Hair stimulants for beards are available, easy to use and are free of chemicals.
Things You'll Need
- Biotine capsules
- B complex vitamin
- Coconut or eucalyptus oil
- Chick peas
Take 2.5 mg of biotin each day to encourage hair and nail growth. Biotin pills are available in most health food stores.
Add a B complex vitamin to your daily routine.
Take zinc supplements. Zinc will help your body absorb all of the hair stimulating vitamins.
Oils and Massage
Rub a small amount of virgin coconut or eucalyptus oil on your hands and run them through your beard. Applying coconut or eucalyptus oil to your beard can help it grow faster. The oil keeps the hair follicles moist and healthy.
Leave the oil on for an hour. Stay in a warm room during this time as heat will help the skin and hair absorb the oil.
Wash your beard with shampoo to remove the remaining oil. Repeat once a week.
Massage your face twice a day for two to three minutes. This will keep the hair follicles active and growing hair.
Eat foods high in protein. Almonds are a source of protein for vegetarians and vegans. Beef and chicken are protein sources for meat eaters.
Eat chick peas or dishes that contain chick peas. These legumes contain vitamin B6 and zinc.
Eat grilled fish. The fatty acids in the fish will keep your body balanced.
Drink plenty of water. The hair cannot grow if your body is not properly hydrated. Eight 8-ounce glasses of water per day should be the minimum.
