You cannot do much about the science of genetics but no need to worry as we all know “where there is a will there's a way.” If you have the will, you’ll certainly find a way to fix your patchy facial hair. So there is always a solution to any problem which we’ll discuss below.
How to Fix It?
Now let’s find out the ways that you can use to enjoy a heavy beard as others do.
Eat a Balanced and Healthy Diet
A balanced and healthy diet can fix most of the problems because many issues arise when we eat an improper and unhealthy diet. Healthy eating habits can do miracles with your body along with your patchy beard but this is not something you can fix in a week or two. It requires consistency in your behavior.
You may get results in six months or a year but you’ll get good results if you stay consistent. Let’s discuss some of the beneficial food for healthy facial hair growth.
Drink a Good Amount of Water
Make a habit to drink plenty of water each day. Water hydrates our body and gives enough moisture to help patchy beard become a fuller beard.
Eat Biotin and Vitamin B6 Rich Natural Food
Biotin and vitamin B6 can prevent hair loss. Vegetables, chicken eggs, almonds, walnuts, and other nuts are some of the foods that are rich in biotin. Chicken breast, fruits, and cereals are rich in vitamin B6 so try to include these food items in your regular diet.
Vitamin A, C, and E
Vitamin A, C, and E are necessary for healthy hair growth. If you want a fuller and thicker beard then eat foods that are rich in vitamins A, C, and E. Make a diet plan and include foods like spinach, kiwi, olive oil, fish, parsley, strawberries, and papaya, etc. in it.
Take a Healthy Amount of Protein
We must take high protein foods including chicken, green vegetables, almond, walnut, eggs, and milk, etc. as they can help in hair growth. Again, the results will not be out in a week or two. You will have to be patient to see the good results.
If you want a denser beard then avoid trimming your beard. Let it grow so that you can identify the way your beard grows. This way you can closely observe the patchy spots.
So, let your beard grow freely at least for a month.
You can style your beard according to your facial features and cover your patchy spots with different designs. You can style it as a thick chin Strap Patchy Beard or you can style it as short French stubble.
Own It, Rock It
Having patches in your beard is not something that you should be ashamed of. You can still look good with this patchy beard. Many Hollywood stars like Johnny Depp,Emile Hirsch, and Van Dyke have a patchy beard which has become a style that they own.
So, own your patchy beard with pride.
Comb or Brush Your Beard More Often
Brushing your beard regularly gives volume to your patchy beard. Use beard comb and beard brush that is specifically designed for the beards. They are structured in a way that massaging your skin under the hair with them can promote hair growth.
Use Beard Products
Beard oil, beard balm, beard butter, and beard shampoo are some of the beard care products that can help you grow your beard heavy. Beard wash helps to clean the dirt away and makes your beard soft and manageable. It has ingredients that are suitable for your facial hair.
On the other hand, beard oil and beard butter provides deep conditioning and prevents itchiness. They provide vitamins and other essential components to your skin and hair which resultantly helps your hair grow thick.
Exercise and Rest
Exercise makes our body fit and well. When we do exercise regularly, it increases testosterone levels that help in hair growth. Studies show that restlessness and lack of sleep affect our bodies in a very bad way. A proper night’s sleep helps in increasing testosterone levels.
We hope these ways help you get what you want. So, get ready to feel a fuller and graceful beard soon!
