A dense beard, without rebellious hair ?!
One thing is for sure: having a beard is not only a matter of choice, it is also a matter of genetics. If it doesn’t grow, you can’t have one. If that’s the case, we’re really sorry, but the next part won’t interest you.
If there’s one word you should repeat to yourself like a mantra as your beard grows, it’s PATIENCE.
Choose the kind of beard you want and give it time to grow. Nothing is immediate on this earth.
If you are tempted by a short beard (especially if you work in a company where bushy beards are not recommended), 2 or 3 weeks should be enough. If you want a long, dense beard, wait about 3 months before trimming the ends and giving it the shape you want.
If you are not used to wear a beard, you may be irritated and peel a little from the 2nd week of growth. Don’t worry, it’s perfectly normal, because the skin dries out a lot and the hair grows. Here are some tips to help you handle it better:
At the beginning, your beard is not very long and it is not necessary to wash it with specific products, but avoid applying shampoo, because they often contain chemical components that can cause irritation.
Moisturize the dry area with natural products such as oils or beard balm. If you choose other products, make sure they do not contain alcohol, which dries out the skin even more and can burn it.
Come on, be brave ! It will soon be over 😉
