Often the beards of many men grow more prominent and longer over two or three weeks, and in addition appear thicker and heavier.

If you’re struggling to grow a beard that will make your friends jealous, don’t worry – we’re here to help. We will discuss the basics of beard growth and give you some tips on how to grow a manly beard.

Give it time

If you’re starting your beard growth journey, don’t give up – be patient. One man’s manly beard is another man’s baby fuzz. Many factors determine how fast and full your beard will grow, including genetics and stress levels.

While everyone can grow a manly beard with patience and time, some men are just not able to grow manly beardsA man’s beard will grow about half an inch per month, and the average man takes about two months to reach full length.

If you’re in a hurry, try using beard oil or other products that can accelerate hair growth. But if you’re willing to wait, your manly beard will eventually grow in.

The Four Week Beard Rule

There’s a beard growth rule that you should follow if you want to achieve the manliest of beards – give it at least four weeks.

Some men can grow a beard in just a few days, but for most of us, it takes about four weeks for our beards to reach their full potential.

During these four weeks, you should not shave at all. This will allow your beard to grow evenly and achieve its full potential.

Style and groom your beard

Beard hair is coarse and curly, so it needs to be treated differently than the hair on your head. Start by washing your beard with a beard wash, which will help soften the hair and remove any dirt or product buildup. Next, apply beard oil to moisturize and condition the hair.

When it comes to styling your beard, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. First, use a good quality beard comb or brush to evenly distribute the beard oil and style your beard in the direction you want it to go. You can also use a small amount of styling gel if needed.

Second, trimming your beard is essential to keep it looking neat. Use a trimmer with adjustable lengths to get the correct length for your beard. Avoid cutting close to the skin, as this can irritate.

Last but not least, be sure to groom your mustache. Trim it in the shape you want and use wax or balm to keep it in place.

Choose the best products for beard care

Here are a few to get you started: 

Beard oil is excellent for moisturizing and conditioning the hair and keeping it soft and shiny. Beard balm or wax can be used if you want to style your manly beard into specific shapes. A good quality beard brush or comb is essential for evenly distributing beard oil and styling the hair.

Follow a healthy diet

To have a manly beard, you need to have a manly body. Eating right is essential for having a lustrous mane and luxurious beard.

Foods high in protein, such as meats, eggs, and legumes, are great for hair growth. Ensure you’re getting enough vitamins and minerals, specifically zinc and biotin.

Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin essential for healthy hair growth – most people get enough biotin from their diet, but if you’re not sure, you can take a biotin supplement.

Avoid stress which causes hair loss

Stress can cause hair loss, so it’s essential to reduce stress levels as much as possible. Meditation and exercises are great ways to relax and de-stress. If you’re constantly stressed out, see a therapist or counselor who can help you healthily deal with your stress.

In addition to reducing stress levels, it’s also essential to eat a healthy diet and get enough sleep each night. These habits can help prevent hair loss from occurring prematurely due to hormonal changes or other factors.

Stay hydrated

Drinking plenty of water is essential for healthy hair growth – including beard hair. Dehydration can cause your beard to become dry, brittle, and thin. Drink at least eight glasses of water per day to keep your body (and beard) hydrated.

Growing a manly beard requires some effort, but it can be easy and fun with the right products and tools! Follow these tips, and you’ll have a beard that would make any man jealous.


Do beard implants work?

If you want a manly beard but can’t grow one, beard implants may be an option. Beard implants are small hair follicles that are implanted into the skin.

Beard implants are a bit expensive, but they can give you the manly beard you’ve always wanted. Talk to your doctor or hair restoration specialist to see if this is an option for you.

The results look natural and last forever – there is no need to shave or trim them like other facial hair options such as mustaches or goatees.

Can every male grow a beard?

Not everyone can grow a beard, but most men can with the right products and tools. If you have difficulty growing a beard, try using a beard growth product or see your doctor to discuss other options.

Does Minoxidil work?

Minoxidil is a popular hair loss treatment that can help grow a manly beard. It works by increasing blood flow and stimulating new growth in the follicles of your manly mane.

Be aware that Minoxidil may cause side effects like redness or irritation when applied topically, so use it with care.

Should I use beard oil every day?

Beard oil is essential for growing a manly beard. It will help keep your mane moisturized and conditioned not to dry out or get frizzy and unmanageable.

A good rule of thumb is to use beard oil every day, but if you have sensitive skin, only use it once per week – anything more than that could cause irritation or breakouts.

If you’re using beard oil, remember to wash it off before bedtime, so it doesn’t stain your pillowcase (if you use one). It’s also important not to get too much product on your manly mane – just enough will do.

How do I fill my patchy beard?

If you have a patchy beard, try using a beard growth product like Minoxidil to help stimulate new hair growth. You can also fill in the patches with an eyebrow pencil or other type of makeup that matches your skin tone.

Be sure to blend the makeup in well, so it looks natural and doesn’t stand out. You can also try using a beard comb or brush to help distribute the product evenly throughout your mane.
