We’re sure that you, as someone with a beard, gets asked questions all the time, such as “Can I touch your beard?,” “How long did it take to grow that beard?,” and “What’s it like having such a sweet beard?” You can answer these questions fairly easily, but you may still have questions of your own regarding your facial fuzz that you want answers to. At Beard Octane, we’re here not only to provide you with amazing beard care products, but also to answer any questions you have about beard growth, grooming, and more. In this post, we’ll look at three commonly asked beard questions.
1. Why Did My Beard Stop Growing?
Beard hair, like any other hair on your body, needs nutrients and vitamins to keep growing. Your diet and exercise routine can also play a part in how well and how long your beard grows, as well as how much sleep you’re getting. If you feel that your beard has simply stopped growing, but you want to add a few more inches to your chin curtain, take a look at our beard supplements, such as our Beard Fuel, which can promote healthy hair growth. The right supplements can also thicken your hair follicles, so even if your beard isn’t getting longer, it can become thicker and fuller, making it look and feel the way you want.
2. How Do I Comb My Beard?
For some men, combing their beard involves using the same plastic comb that they use on their head. While you might be able to get by with this for a little while, it’s probably not doing your beard any favors. Plastic combs can put a static charge into your beard hairs, and this can result in the hair changing shape and not laying the way you want them to. With one of our beard combs, you can groom and shape your whiskers however you want. The direction you comb or brush your beard will depend on how much volume you want and how long your beard is. Try different methods such as combing from the center to the edges or from top to bottom to see how your beard reacts.
3. What Do I Do When My Beard Goes Gray?
A graying beard can be a sign of wisdom and sophistication, so if you’re noticing a few more white and gray hairs, we say embrace it! However, we know that not everyone wants to become Gandalf in their 30s, so it’s up to you if you want to dye your beard to match its natural color. You can also trim and groom your beard to remove any random gray hairs, but keep in mind that you may not want to sacrifice the shape or length of your beard just to remove the gray. By washing and conditioning your beard on a regular basis, as well as applying the right beard oils and balms each day, you can keep your follicles healthy and perhaps stave off the gray for a few more years. It’s important to keep in mind that this will only be a temporary measure and that age will eventually catch up. When it does, be proud of your wizened whiskers!
