grow a beard

Many men are looking for effective remedies to help grow a beard if it does not grow. But the best result gives not drugs and perfume products, but the elimination of the causes that cause the problem. 

Causes of the lack of beard growth on some parts of the face

The specific reasons will be established by a trichologist. But usually the uneven growth of the beard is caused by:

  • genetically – this disorder is worse to treat;
  • hormonal abnormalities, in which you should consult an endocrinologist;
  • is the result of improper care;
  • associated with poor circulation, stress and fatigue. 

It is impossible to answer unequivocally what to do if the beard grows in places. It depends on the situation. But you need to choose the right shape of the beard, the direction of the vegetation, buy good care products.  

Ways to eliminate them at home

If the beard does not grow, it is not possible to do something about genetics. But it is possible to correct mistakes in the care of the skin and hair. This will give a good effect, although it will take a lot of time. 

A balanced diet

For the beard to grow evenly, you need to activate the follicles in the problem areas. This requires that the skin does not suffer from dehydration, getting enough fluids and vitamins. You should drink at least 1.5 liters of water per day. 

In order for the beard to grow thick, you need to make adjustments to the diet. It should include:

  • Products containing ascorbic acid (vitamin C). It improves circulation and promotes the activation of hair follicles. It is found in cabbage, apples, tomatoes, tangerines, lemons, etc. You can drink decoction of rose hips and sea buckthorn, it also contains a lot of vitamin C. 
  • Foods high in vitamin A. Retinol keeps the skin in a normal state, eliminates dryness. They are carrots, sweet peppers, apricots, and cheese. Retinol is found in sea fish, eggs and liver, as well as in avocados. 
  • Vegetable oils (sunflower, olive, corn) and nuts. They contain vitamin E, fatty acids, proteins and other elements necessary for strengthening hair. 

Increase in testosterone 

If the beard is not growing, it is necessary to do a hormone test. If the cause is a lack of testosterone, only a trichologist or endocrinologist can prescribe medication. But something can be done by yourself. Causes of decreased testosterone levels: 

  • Low physical activity; 
  • Chronic stress;
  • problems with sleep;
  • taking certain medications;
  • The presence of diseases of the endocrine system. 

Your doctor will tell you what you need to do to eliminate abnormalities. Do not take hormonal drugs without consulting a specialist. But to reconsider your lifestyle, start exercising, take care of proper rest – you can do it yourself. You can also include in your diet more foods containing fatty acids and zinc.

  • vitamins B3, B5 normalize blood circulation;
  • pyrodoxine (vitamin B6) is necessary for normal metabolism;
  • Biotin (B7) contributes to the fact that the hair will grow thicker and stronger;
  • folic acid (vitamin B9) affects the thickness of hair;
  • Vitamin B12 is essential for oxygen supply.
