Whether you’ve sported a beard before or just want to get into it for the first time, there’s a lot to learn to truly tame that mane. Because beards grow at different rates, some people automatically assume that there’s nothing that they can do about it. However, in our experience as bear care specialists, there’s a lot that you can do—and a lot more that you shouldn’t—to spur your beard’s growth.

To help you out, here are four of the most common habits that we think you should avoid when attempting to grow a glorious mane in a shorter time:

Assuming that you can’t grow a beard 

Men’s beards grow at different rates. Because of genetics, some people will naturally grow facial hair faster than you. However, that doesn’t mean that you will never be able to grow your own.

Another thing to remember is that it’s normal to see uneven patches on your face. The truth is, a lot of men’s beards start that way—especially if you’re still in your 20s. This is because most men’s beards are still developing well into their 30s! 

The best thing to do is to continue growing it out and performing primary beard care—which leads us to the next item on this list. 

Not trimming your beard 

Some men are so insecure about their ability to grow facial hair that they think even trimming might impede their progress. The truth is, trimming is very much part of beard maintenance. 

This aspect of maintaining your beard is especially crucial in the beginning, as this allows you to even out parts of your beard that are growing at a faster rate than others. 

Not using beard oil 

Along with your beard comb and razors,natural beard oil is one of the first products you should use when growing your beard. Beard oil serves two primary purposes: they make you look good and make you feel even better. 

To be specific, these solutions give your beard a fuller appearance, while also alleviating some of the most common complaints men have when letting their facial hair grow out: dry and irritated skin. Natural beard oil moisturizes both the beard and the skin underneath it to keep you from developing the dreaded beard itch. 

Some of our beard oils also encourage hair growth, making it even more critical to use beard oil as early as possible. 

Not using beard-specific shampoo

There is no hard and fast rule when it comes to washing your beard. If you work in a relatively dry and cold environment, such as an office, you might get away with washing your beard less than if you had to do a job involving manual labor. 

The real issue is when you use hair products intended for your head, not your face. Using regular shampoo will leave your face and beard barren because your scalp produces more oil than your face. Instead, use anall-natural beard wash to keep your face and beard clean and moisturized at all times.


Growing your facial hair and getting the beard of your dreams is a journey that may take more than a few weeks for most men. So don’t worry if you think that your hair isn’t growing fast enough. Chances are, your beard just needs a little more care to achieve its full potential!
