Our quick guide to growing a beard presents a method that will help you steer clear of beard-growing pitfalls and give you the confidence and determination to lead you to beard properly.
First one must have patience to commit to growing a beard. Whether or not you should grow a beard depends in large part on your family genetics. If you have developed enough facial hair to allow you to grow a beard, then you owe it to yourself to grow it out at and see if this style is for you. You may be so pleased with the results, even unexpectedly so, that you decide to keep the beard permanently. In short the choice is yours!
Next one must stop shaving and start growing! We know this is hard but its crucial to overall growth and attempts at getting the right products to maintain growth. This will help identify patchy areas and areas in which may need more attention. DO NOT shave for the first 4-5 weeks of growth this will halt the process of what you are trying to obtain long term. This is one of the most common errors is to attempt to start shaping or sculpting the beard too early in the process. Please keep in mind during this process you may itch do not let this deter you from growing the beard. Keep Going!
