The cult of clean-shaven skin is a thing of the past. A man with facial hair has become a sex symbol of our days. A beard is especially honored, which allows you to increase the degree of brutality without special costs and in a relatively short time. We answer six questions that most often concern both potential and already established bearded men.
1. How to grow a beard?
Gently shave your face and just wait. It usually takes at least two weeks to grow a short beard, and about three months to grow a long beard. When the vegetation grows back enough, a visit to the barber is obligatory, since not all men manage to give their optimal shape on their own. If pierced in this step, the beard on the face will not produce the desired effect.
2. What to do if there are bald spots on the beard?
Many men experience uneven beard growth. Pharmacy products will come to the rescue. The simplest is good old burdock oil. Look for a product that contains red pepper. Thanks to him, bald spots will quickly overgrow if you apply oil to them every two days. In addition, such drugs as "Alerana", "Minoxidil", "Exiderm", etc. will help to solve this problem. These funds help to stimulate blood circulation, but before using them, you must read the instructions, since they have contraindications.
3. Why doesn't a beard grow?
Beard growth is individual and depends on genetics, metabolism and hormones. The bristles on the face usually grow actively after 25 years. If at this age there is no beard at all, most likely it will not be. You can't argue against genetics. Hair growth depends on the nationality. So, rough vegetation on the body, including the face, is characteristic of southern peoples, and among Asians, the bristles are much weaker.
If the growth of a beard did not cause concern until recently, but at one point everything changed, genetics had nothing to do with it. In this case, it is necessary to visit a trichologist or therapist in order to exclude hormonal problems.
4. Can I dry and straighten my beard with a hairdryer?
Barbers believe that a hairdryer does not harm the beard if you use it at minimum power and with the obligatory use of thermal protection products. Moreover, you can use a hair curling iron for straightening.
5. Does a beard keep you warm in cold weather?
This is a question from the category "Is it hot in summer to walk with hair on your head?". The beard does not provide additional insulation. However, it perfectly protects the skin from chapping during bad weather.
6. What do you need to have at home to take care of your beard yourself?
In the home arsenal of a bearded man, the following tools and accessories must be present: a hair clipper, scissors, a brush for combing, a shaver, shampoo, balm and oil. Such a set will allow you to independently maintain your beard in proper condition between visits to the barbershop.
