How To Grow A Thicker Beard

October 25, 2019

A thick beard is to a proud beardsman as cigarettes are to prison dollars. So, whether you’re a beginner—err, a “beard-ginner”—or a seasoned beardsman, having a thick pillow of luscious hair on your face is the mark of a man who knows what’s what when it comes to facial hair. The problem is, most of us guys make the mistake of thinking that a thicker beard is achievable simply by letting all that hair grow out of your mug. As such, we forget the necessary steps we need to take in order to achieve that prized consistency in our facial forests. And it is due to that reason that we took it upon ourselves to talk to you about how to grow a thicker beard!

TLC? More like BLL!

Sure, a whole load of tender lovin’ care is required if you’re serious about the whole beard growing game, but here’s another acronym for you: BLL. And it consists of three important factors you need to look out for when determining your face forest’s condition. Check them out below:

B is for Body

This basically points to the volume of hair you have. Simply put, the more hair that grows from your face, the more body and girth you get.

L is for Lusciousness

To have a luscious beard means to have a soft, smooth, and consistent shape to your face fur. Having these qualities is a telltale sign that you’re cultivating a beard that’s full of vitality, nutrients, vitamins and all!

And the other L is for Length

Many times, genetics plays a big part when it comes to beard length. Some men are lucky to be born with the right genes for beard growth that let them grow it out to several inches long, while others have a difficult time with even growing just half an inch. This is where a proper care regimen goes a long way.

Turning tricks for beards

Have you ever wondered how some men who have the same beard growth rate seem to still have different beard lengths even if they grew it at the same time? Well, it’s definitely not magic, we’ll tell you that. But there are a few reasons why some men tend to appear to have thicker beards.

Hair color

The darker the color, the fuller hair looks. And that applies to beards as well.

Dense hairs

Some men are able to grow more hair per square inch of their face, which gives men a thicker, longer beard.

Hair diameter

Depending on your genes, your hair strands may either be thick or thin. The thicker it is, the thicker your beard appears as a whole.

Of course, an honest beardsman does not need to turn to these tricks and various forms of chicaneries to achieve that perfect volume. So, here’s everything you need to know about how to help yourself grow a thicker beard:

1. It’s all about the skin

Think of your skin as the proverbial garden soil in which those strands of much-coveted beard hairs grow. Of course, you won’t expect anything to grow if the soil is barren, right? The same thing goes for your skin: the healthier it is, the better foundation you provide for beard growth. Now, your main goal here is to make sure that your face is getting the right kind and the proper amount of nutrients that stimulate hair growth. To that end, we highly recommend you take vitamins or supplements that are especially formulated to provide you with skin-clearing and hair-growing nutrients. Norse Grooming Growth Vitamins are a prime example of this. Packed with vitamins A, E, and essential nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids, this supplement not just helps you become beard-ready, but also keeps your overall well-being in tip-top condition.

2. Sweat it out

Of course, there’s no need to mention how exercise benefits your overall health. However, one thing you might not have known is that it also stimulates beard growth. How so, you ask? Well, working out—especially if it’s cardio exercises you’re doing—helps improve circulation in your body. The better your circulation, the easier blood is transported to your face. So, what does blood have to do with all this? Well, that red juice in your body is responsible for distributing the essential hormone for beard growth: testosterone. And as you probably know, testosterone—or lack thereof—plays a major factor in beard growth.

3. Mellow out

Ever heard that joke about that guy who got so stressed, he started losing his hair? Well, it’s not so funny when you find out that stress can actually lead to male pattern baldness. Not only will you lose the ability to grow a wonderful face fur, but you’ll end up looking like a cue ball if you’re always stressed out. This is due to the massive amounts of cortisol being pumped in your body, which greatly reduces the amount of testosterone you have in your body. As the old saying goes, take time to stop and smell the roses every once in a while. You might be surprised how beneficial it really is!

4. Get the right tools for your arsenal

We cannot overstate how important it is to have the right products that could help you maintain your beard. So, allow us to give you some of the basics here:

Beard shampoo and conditioner

Choose a beard shampoo and conditioner that’s all-natural. Artificial ingredients tend to be too abrasive and could lead to dry, brittle hair and chapped skin. On the other hand, going with something natural, such as Norse Grooming Shampoo, ensures that you’re getting a mellow wash.

Beard oil

Go with a proper beard oil that’s complete with all the essential vitamins, nutrients, and essential oils you and your beard need. Norse Grooming. has one of the best beard oils out there, made from 9 natural ingredients.

Beard balm

Keep that facial hair soft and tame with a proper beard balm. As with beard oils, this product helps your skin and hair supplied with all the necessary vitamins and minerals they need. It also makes sure your hair grows in the proper direction, which leads to a thicker looking beard.

Beard comb

No tool kit is complete without a proper styling comb. For this, we simply recommend you go with one that’s made of wood, which is as non-conductive as possible, to avoid any unwanted frizz when brushing. Just follow these steps and you’ll be a regular lumberjack in no time, man! I have a feeling that someday when people search “How To Grow A Thicker Beard” a picture of your face will pop up.
