How Often Should You Stroke Your Beard And Should You Let Others Do It?

It is fair to say that life is becoming better for many people. While it may seem like a slow-moving world, it is fair to say that many people are becoming more tolerable of others and accepting that it is okay for people to be one way while other people are another. This is important to remember but in case you forget, here is a casual reminder:

Some men have a patchy beard, get used to it!

Yes, if you were to ask people what they think of when they see or read the word beard, it is likely that a lumberjack-style beard will spring to mind. That is one perception and it is fine if you spend your idle moments daydreaming about running your fingers through this beard (be it your own or someone else’s) but this isn’t the beard that everyone likes or indeed, can grow.

If you have struggled with a patchy beard and it has put you off the idea of growing a beard, don’t worry, you are not alone. There are many reasons why you may have a patchy beard including genetics, alopecia areata, your diet, a hormone imbalance, stress or even a lack of exercise. If you have noticed that your beard is patchy, and you then start to worry about it, the stress of worrying about your beard is likely to make the matter worse, so it pays to be relaxed about the condition of your beard.

If you re determined to make your beard look fuller, you must act, and proper grooming is essential. Be sure to comb you beard out regularly, to apply beard oil and balm, add more protein to your diet, get better sleep, drink more water and exercise more. You can see why some men would prefer to have a patchy beard than to make all of these changes, but it is up to you. As with so many things in life, you only get out what you put in.

Many men have grown a patchy beard, and if it bothers you that much but you still want a beard, there are some things to remember:

  • Growing a beard can take time and if it has only been a month or two, you will need to be patient
  • You will care more about your patchy beard than anyone else in the world
  • Beards become denser as you age so if you have a patchy beard, it may just be because you are young, pert and supple – embrace this fact!
  • There are short styles of beard that allow men with patchy beards to embrace the look they desire

Ultimately, a patchy beard is still a beard, and the level of how you are bothered about the beard comes down to your perceptions. You may feel fully dressed with a beard but remember, it is only one part of your overall package on display to the world. It is far better to be a great guy with a patchy beard than an absolute dick with a well-cultivated hipster beard.

If you do have a patchy beard and you are determined to improve it, we have a range of products that will leave you feeling fuller-faced and happier.
