How To Grow A Thicker Beard (Like A Pro)


Are you searching for the best ways to grow a thicker beard and look more masculine and alpha? If yes, you are in the right place!

The reality is that most men are not born having great beard genetics or a full beard.  

Most men are born with bald spots. In fact, some of them have various patchy areas, while others are born with a thinner face fuzz. If your goal is to have that thick beard, fear not, because this article seeks to do away with the patchiness that most normal men go through. 

Without further ado, let’s get into it!

Best Tips To Grow A Thicker And Strong Beard

Tip 1: Start Exercising

Exercising is a good way of losing body fat and will have an impact on beard growth. 

Lifting weights and exercise with resistance has a direct correlation with the increase of testosterone levels. Also, another thing that exercising does is that it improves blood circulation.

Better blood circulation through your face ensures that all the necessary and important nutrients that are much needed will be carried faster and help you grow a healthier, stronger, and thicker beard.

Tip 2: Reduce Stress Levels

When someone has increased levels of stress, cortisol levels increase. 

Cortisol has a direct effect on testosterone, decreasing its levels. As such, to get that thick beard or fill in your patchy beard, reduce your stress levels. This can be done through various ways, for instance, by reading a book, meditating, relaxing, exercising yoga, etc. 

Tip 3: Have a Beard Diet

This entails “nourishing your beard’ with the necessary beard-growing nutrients. These include fats and proteins

Fats are often painted in a bad light, however, they are so significant to cells in the body including. Healthy fats also contribute to the production of testosterone. So when your diet is very low on fats your testosterone levels are affected negatively. 

Do you see how everything pairs with testosterone that is men’s main hormone that gives them the male characteristics?

Tip 4: Treat Your Beard With Vitamins

Some vitamins and minerals can enhance beard thickness and growth. 

For example, you can get zinc that is an essential nutrient. Zinc has a variety of uses gene expression, protein synthesis, growth and development. 

Zinc is also considered to have a mild effect on testosterone levels causing them to rise a little bit naturally. 

Remember, the healthier your body is, the most likely you are to grow facial hair because everything will work perfectly fine. You won’t miss out on nutrients that make hair break or become thinner.

Tip 5: Do Not Shave For At Least 30 Days

This means you should let your beard grow. Most men are ever cutting their beards or trimming them rather than allowing them some time to grow. To get a thicker beard, giving it the time is critical. 

Give it thirty or more days to shift from a short and patchy beard to having a beard that is much thicker by covering some patchy areas with longer facial hair. 

Give it some time to fill in and see what your beard looks like in full effect. 

Tip 6: Your Beard Will Continue To Fill In Until 30 Years of Age And Even Later Than That

Age is critical to beard growth. With time, it fixes the patchiness that most men experience. As you get older, your beard is going to grow and fill in

Tip 7: Use Hair Regrowth Remedies

For those who find the natural process long, using a hair regrowth remedy can help grow a thick beard faster (not fast)

One such remedy is Minoxidil which is considered a much-needed way of growing facial hair by most people. The bad thing about Minoxidil is that you should use it for your whole life to make hair stay and keep growing. 

Same as with head hair and Minoxidil use. 


It is important to note that some men are genetically endowed with facial hair while others aren’t. 

If you are on the other side of patchiness, don’t worry since maybe going forward, cause you can do quite a lot of things to grow a thicker beard. 

Another solution that will have an immediate impact on the way you look is obviously a beard transplant. 

I really hope you learned some useful stuff today and you have what you need to increase your beard growth and thickness.

Let it grow, gentlemen!

Stay safe.
