Patchy Beard Tips: How To Make Your Beard As Thick As Your DNA Allows.
At least once a year my little brother texts me asking how he can grow more facial hair. Like me, he has an uneven beard, and every year I say the exact same thing: if you’re not supposed to grow hair, you’re not going to grow it. Of course, this may subside with age, but it’s as much a part of your genetics as being uneven to begin with.
While you can to make an uneven beard fuller, the first thing you need to do is kiss the beard you have. You won’t make it fuller by wishing for new hair.
I think Dev Patel and Keanu Reeves are two examples of perfectly executed patchy beards. Patel is more sparse, and he wears it that way. Keanu, when short, exhibits a lot of uneven density, which fills in a bit more as he grows. But they both wear it with real confidence and they look great. Keanu also shows off what you can do: on the rare occasion that he has a full beard, she looks exactly that – bushy, lush, beautiful – but along the way, he (or his groomer) knows how to get the best of it. gone from his mustache.
You can follow the tips below to get the most out of your beard. But also: know that what you are capable of cultivating is something that the big, bushy guys might not dream of either. Not to mention, anyone who has to kiss these guys has either a sandpaper rash all over their face or leftovers from yesterday’s lunch. Remember this when the next time you want your patchy beard to look thicker.
How to make uneven beards thicker
1. Let it grow
As obvious as it sounds, this one has to be at the top of the list. You could be a few weeks, or even months, away from your beard looking like a real beard, just letting your hair cover more space. “Don’t shave” is rule number one when it comes to having a beard.
2. Keep it reckless
If the goal is to enhance the beard, of course you have to let it grow. But if you prefer to just wear your facial hair short (without accentuating the patches), adopt the perma-stubble look with a good electric razor, or with your beard trimmer on its lower guards. The scarcity will not be so noticeable.
3. Use a beard balm
If and when you are growing it, you should go for higher hold conditioning and styling products. A thick balm helps control stubborn hair and lets you style those longer strands on uneven spots. (It’s like a combo, but for beards.) Plus, balms are usually packed with nourishing ingredients like shea butter and essential oils that could help promote growth while keeping everything healthy.
4. Brush it
The main function of a beard brush is to distribute the natural oils that build up in the hair shaft, and it is usually not a styling tool. (Brushing is a good nighttime habit, as part of any beard regimen.) However, while the beard is still in its short to medium stages, you can also brush it during your morning styling routine, to help cover the spots. Then apply your beard balm and style it by hand. A few quick passages in the same direction should be enough.
5. If all else fails, dye it!
This isn’t a trick that will work for everyone, but if your skin is less bald than blonde (or gray), consider dyeing your facial hair. This is especially effective for guys who grow two-tone beards – super light blonde hair alongside dark browns, for example. A little bit of natural colored hair dye will bring out an even color which in turn will make the beard thicker and fuller. The keyword is natural: choose something that matches the rest of your whiskers, or at least the hair on your head. (Going a shade or two lighter can help, or choose a brand that promises to subtly dye the hair, instead of a wax finish.)
