How to Grow Out Your Beard: Beyond the First 30 Days

How to Grow Out Your Beard: Beyond the First 30 Days

The Struggle Is Real: The Hairy Path Ahead

We've all had the same dream: a beard that would make Grizzly Adams jealous. Only after a couple weeks to be met with uneven patches, itchiness, and the overwhelming urge to shave it all off after a few weeks. Well, I'm here to tell you, that you're not alone. The first steps to a majestic beard can be a struggle for some, but I promise it'll all be worth it in the end.

Jake's Struggle

Meet my buddy Jake, a welder from Kansas. Jake admired the beards of his friends and co-workers, but every time he attempted to grow one, he'd become frustrated by the patchiness, throw in the towel and shave. It might sound silly, but this was a big deal to Jake, and as a new guy in his shop he felt it would help him fit in. Jake's problem? The first 30 days.

A World of Bearded Glory

Imagine: Waking up every morning with a proud Zeus-like beard. No more itchiness or patches. Don't let your dreams be dreams – Just do it.

The Path to Bearded Victory

1. Stay the Course: Remember, the first 30 days are by far the hardest. You might even feel a little insecure but trust me: be patient and remember no one is thinking about you as much as you do.
2. Beard Oil to the Rescue: Just a few drops of beard oil in the morning can keep your skin moisturized, reduce itchiness, and promote healthy growth.
3. Butter Up: Beard butter helps make your beard more manageable as well as nourish your beard. I personally prefer to use it at night before bed.
4. Balm Basics: Want to shape your beard? Beard balm offers the conditioning of butter, but more styling control. I like to apply it about 10-15 minutes after my beard oil.
5. Regular Trims: It might sound counterintuitive, but trimming ensures even growth and avoids that unkempt look. Consider finding a barber who is good with beards. You're way less likely to give up when you have a little help.
6. Give It Time - Rome wasn't built in a day, and your beard won't be either.

There and Back Again

Think back to the times you've attempted in the past, became frustrated and shaved. Now, are you ready to give it another shot?
