How to Grow a Thicker Beard
A beard gives off so many positive vibes. Confidence. Wisdom. Virility. Courage. Strength. Women find beards attractive. And the list goes on. Guys know that it’s not all about the length. Just because you have grown a long beard quickly doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ve got what it takes to be a bearded model. Without density and thickness, you could be sporting a ‘Keanu Reeves’ without even knowing it. All of the tips mentioned above can help in making your beard appear thicker. Unfortunately, there is only so much a man can do.
Your genes have a significant say in how thick your beard grows. If your dad has always struggled to cultivate a manly, bushy beard, there is a good chance that you too will have trouble in that department. If you can’t grow a beard right now but your father can, you just might need to tap into that beard-growing patience again.
It really does all come back to patience and time. You may be past the four-week hurdle only to find that you’re still riddled with patches and bald spots. You might just need to give it some more time. Let it fill out and be patient. Once you have more to work with, you can then trim and shape your beard to make it appear thicker.
You can solve so many of life’s problems with a little money and the right product. It makes sense to think that you can help a patchy beard with a hair growth product like Rogaine. Unfortunately, there is no rock solid proof that this type of product can help. The internet abounds with plenty of anecdotal evidence around these kinds of products, but be careful before spending too much money on this unproven approach.
The hair transplant is by far the most drastic and invasive way to remedy a beard that refuses to grow to your masculine potential. We most often associate hair transplants with the heads of balding gentlemen, but we can use it in the beard zone too. Doctors take hair from the back of a patient’s scalp and graft it onto his face. And although not every guy is a candidate for the procedure, it actually does work. It is, however, the most expensive solution and a very dramatic fix.
