Patience Is Essential
We all know it takes time to grow a beard. Not to mention, the look of the final product will vary from person to person. It is important to know that there is a whole slew of contributing factors that are outside of your control. Ethnicity, age, genetics, and hormones all play a role in whether your beard comes in faster or slower and how it looks.

Yes, it may take some time to grow it out, but there are some things you can do to ensure you are giving yourself the best beard possible. Use high-quality beard products with organic, cold-pressed butter and eating a healthy diet will help you grow a strong fuller beard.
Know How and When to Trim
A beard needs to be taken care of just like you would a nice pair of shoes or your favorite pants or shirts. That is where trimming your beard comes into play. Trimming a beard isn’t as simple as just grabbing some clippers and beginning to cut away. Depending on how much of it you want to be trimmed or the style you are looking to achieve, you have to use different techniques when trimming your beard.
It is commonly recommended to start with a bigger guard to avoid cutting everything too short. An even length all around tends to be one of the more simple trims. If your beard is important to you, leave it to the pros! Seek a professional barber in your area and take home our beard care products for regular maintenance.
No one knows more about your beard better than you. Every beard is different and requires more or less care depending on the person.

Your beard should not be your sole focus. your mustache is just as much a part of your grooming routine as your beard. Taking some scissors after using a good quality comb to get the trim you want so that it pairs well with your beard.

Balanced Beard Diet
In particular, your food intake should be high in protein, iron, omega-3 foods. More information on each below.
Protein: Increasing your consumption of protein-rich foods also aids in increasing the production of testosterone in your body. A higher level of testosterone in the body not only helps in improving muscle strength and gain, but also contributes to improving the speed of growing a quality beard.
If you do not take in sufficient amounts of protein, then there is a great chance for your beard to become brittle and dry, making them vulnerable to breakage. Aside from that, protein inadequacy can also negatively affect your beard’s fullness and thickness. It tends to limit the growth of your beard, so it is advisable to eat protein-rich foods to help it grow to the desired length that you want to achieve.
Protein Foods: eggs, chicken, almonds, oats, greek yogurt, lean beef
Iron: Iron also has a vital role to play in growing a healthy and thick beard. It stimulates beard and hair growth while repairing any damaged cells, too. The role played by iron in producing and growing hair is so important that any deficiency in it triggers hair loss. With that in mind, it is advisable to consume iron-rich foods if you want your beard to grow healthy.
Iron Foods: sweet potato, peas, oatmeal, grain bread.
Omega-3 Fats: About 3% of your hair shaft is made up of Omega-3 fatty acids. This is important to remember since they keep both your skin and hair healthy and hydrated. So if you want a beard that not only looks great, but also feels great, then you must integrate Omega-3 fatty acids into your diet.
Omega-3 Foods: Eggs, potatoes, beef, gelatin, orange juice, fish, mussels, fish oil
Vegan & Vegetarian Foods Options: Broccoli, tofu, edamame, lentils, hemp seed, spirulina.
Your nutrition also affects the quality and health of your beard. Make sure to keep that in mind the next time you are eating. Your beard will thank you!
