Have you noticed your beard hair getting darker? When I was growing a beard, I noticed that my beard looked much more thick and substantial after the length had increased and the hairs started to intertwine more. It could be that you are in the early stages of beard growth and have noticed that the white hairs on your face are turning into thick dark hairs.
When I was growing a beard, there was a moment, about three months in, where I realised that pretty much everything I ate and drank got into my beard. I used to drink about two or 3 cups of coffee a day, and I became very self-conscious about the amount of milk foam leftover in my beard. I researched the different ways to drink coffee with a beard without it ending up in your moustache.
It’s something that every beard grower has to go through – the internal monologues, particularly in the early stages, that are telling you to give up. The early stages of grown a beard are particularly torturous. You have to deal with the way it looks on your face, and the negative feelings are amplified by the way it feels.
Some people love it whilst others absolutely hate it. As a bearded person, I have had my fair share of reactions. Some people have said that they feel incredibly sorry for my partner having to kiss a beard. Whilst for other people it makes no difference. Kissing with a beard can be relatively tricky because you have to navigate the hair that can get caught in between lips.
Protecting your beard with products is one of the best ways to ensure strong and healthy growth. I know that when I started using Beard balm and dedicated Beard shampoo my Beard improved dramatically. However, all of the different products and maintenance tasks can take up a fair bit of time. That’s when you can maximise your time efficiency by putting products in your beard overnight.
Sleep is a very important part of maintaining a healthy body. Chronic sleep deficiency which is either an inadequate amount of sleep or sleep that is out of sync with your circadian rhythm is a key factor in determining your health status. There is no doubt that the lack of sleep contributes to a number of important fundamental changes in your immune system and neurology that play a role in disease development.
There are many people, myself included, who have the odd grey hair poking out through their luscious thick dark beard. As you get older these hairs start becoming more frequent and you can end up with a grey beard – or streaks of grey – very quickly. In this article, I will share with you how you can reverse your grey beard and also slow down the process so that you can hold on to your younger colour for as long as possible.
Noticing that your beard is growing faster or slower on one side your face is completely normal. I certainly notice that my beard is much thicker on the right-hand side of my face and is more obvious when my beard is shorter. This also happens to be the side of the face that I primarily sleep on. So that got me to fit thinking – does sleeping on one side of your face affect beard growth? In this article, we’re going to go over all of the science of sleeping and what the implications of sleeping on your beard could mean for its growth.
When I was first grown my beard the mustache area of my face was the first area that needed attention. It started as fine but dark hairs at the corner of my lips which then slowly spread up to the centre of my face -just under my nose. I actually ended up shaving in secret because I didn’t like the look of the hairs on the side of my mustache area. In the UK we called it “bum fluff”. Not very attractive and something that heightened the self-consciousness of having it.
