A lot of beard blogs and social media pages constantly talk about the benefits of growing a beard. They rarely highlight the downside of this process. As part of the beard fam, we are sure you have experienced some of these issues. The bright side of this though is that there is a solution for every problem you may experience.
1. Growing it in the first place:
Growing a beard is not an easy task for everyone. Some men have an added advantage of genetics and can grow a full, thick beard in less than a month. For some of us, it can take up to a year or more to get that full mane.
This may be the hardest solution to follow but it will be well worth it. Good things come to those who wait.
Some other things that may speed up the growth process are eating healthy and working out. Read more about this in the links below:
