Having a beard means more than just being fashionable. It is a symbol and celebration of manhood. However, not all men are gifted to grow long and full beards. You might decide to start growing a beard and find yourself having a missing patches of hair. Sadly, the way your hair grows depends strongly on the genetics. But don’t worry, Mo Bro’s is here to help! There are ways to remedy the patchiness and make the most of what you’ve got.
Let It Grow
First rule of growing any kind of beard is to stay away from the razor and just let it grow for at least a month.
Many beards never come into existence, because some men underestimate their beard’s actual potential, thinking that it’s going to be too patchy. We recommend to let your beard grow for at least four weeks, because only after a decent amount of time, you can evaluate it’s true status. Some Beards only start to connect after a month.
Another tip is to trim your cheek and jaw line after a month to keep it tidy, and continue letting it grow even further. It’s likely that as the beard grows longer, the patches will get lost underneath the rest of your beard.
Take Care Of Your Beard
It is important to not only let your beard grow, but also to take good care of it. Beard grooming products will increase the hair growth, keep it healthy and will help making your beard look fuller.
Beard Oil will stop any irritation and itching. The biggest benefit of this product is that it can reach the skin beneath the beard and moisturise it. Beard oil also promotes the hair growth and the new hair will be thicker and fuller.
Beard Balm will give your beard a little more volume,condition it and make it look thicker.
Brushing and combing will help to cover patches and also give your beard a tidy appearance.
Patchy beards can look just as great as full beards. We recommend to go for something in between a stubble and a beard, that will make patches less noticeable.
Trimming certain areas of your beard can make others look fuller. We recommend keeping the sides shorter. If your beard is patchy further up, bring the line down the cheek. Sharp edges can create an impression of fullness.
A patchy beard might not be what you expected when you started growing it, but that does not mean that you should not keep it. All beards are awesome, and a patchy one can be just as good as a full one, you just need to have patience and take care of it the right way.
