Growing a majestic beard is not exactly easy, with all the effort and time that one needs to invest in it. That being said, it is also not as difficult as people often make it out to be. Yes, it requires your attention, and more often than not, things tend to go a little awry. However, since winter is almost upon us, there's no reason why not to grow one.
Here are a few tricks and tips that you can try out this winter to ramp up your beard growth, and get really dapper.Use A Beard Shampoo
Ditch that face wash, bar of soap and hair shampoo, and use a beard shampoo for your beard. Beard shampoos also nourish the stubble, which facilitates faster and better growth.Massage Your Beard
This one is kind of obvious. Use a really good beard oil, one that suits your skin and beard type. Yes, you can use regular coconut oil and olive oil if you feel a little fancy, but try to switch things up a notch and go for a beard oil. Most of them are formulated to cater to all kinds of nutrition requirements that would make your beard grow just the way it should.Watch Those Cigarettes
We know that kicking the butt can be extremely difficult, so you could try to regulate it to the best of your abilities. And we mean really regulate your intake of nicotine. Patches, chewing gums, and e-cigarettes don't count as there's hardly any evidence to suggest that these actually work when it comes to growing your beard.Trim, But Selectively
Don't be afraid to trim your stubble ever so slightly, if things go awry. That being said, don't run for the trimmer at the first chance you get. More often than not, properly brushing your beard and oil massages tend to iron out all sorts of kinks in your beard.Watch Your Diet
Some food groups actually facilitate better hair growth, naturally. Usually food items rich in vitamins A, all variants of vitamin B and C, really do a great job of making your hair, as well as your beard grow out. Having a diet that is rich in magnesium also works wonders. Ideally, your diet should have a healthy balance between green leafy vegetables, fruits with seeds, and eggs. Try to regulate your carbohydrate and meat intake, to ensure good hair and scalp health.
