How To Grow A Beard Fast and Natural | Beard Growth Tips

Growing a beard is a lengthy process full of trial and error and (occasionally) frustration. Well, today that changes, because for you, reader, we want to give you the best tips and tricks on what it takes to stimulate beard growth naturally, easily, and as quickly as your genetics will allow.

Keep in mind that many men start this journey only to face challenges that cause them to quit. Although it probably won’t be the hardest thing you do in your life, it certainly won’t be the easiest.

So, whether you’re a beard growing veteran, or brand new to the process, these tips will help you achieve the full and healthy beard you want so bad!

1. Commit to Your Beard Growth

There are two things a beard requires to grow: patience, and commitment. Okay, maybe that’s not all, but it’s the single biggest point that will aid you in your beard growing journey.

Here’s the truth: Most men quit on their beards too early. Most likely, they could have had the beard they wanted if they had stuck out the process for just a bit longer. Sometimes, it’s all in our heads.

It’s important to establish realistic expectations from the beginning. Sorry to say, you won’t go to bed clean shaven one day and wake up fully bearded the next, but that would be awesome, right?

Instead, understand that beards, much like our minds, mature with age. And a large factor of your beard growth is based on individual characteristics like genetics, age, and ethnicity.

So, if you’re down to be patient and do your best, continue on for some of the more controllable and proactive tips to this!

2. Maintain a Healthy Diet

Nutrition plays a significant role in beard growth. Your beard needs the right nutrients to grow thick and strong. Incorporate foods rich in vitamins and minerals such as:

Nutrition is HUGE in terms of beard growth. Bigger than you may know or realize. Just like your muscles, your beard will require the right nutrients to grow big and strong. Take a look at these below:

  • Protein: Found in meat, fish, eggs, and legumes, protein is essential for hair growth.
  • Vitamins B5, B6, and B12: These vitamins, found in chicken, fish, eggs, and nuts, promote hair health.
  • Biotin: Found in eggs, nuts, and seeds, biotin is known for its role in hair and nail growth.
  • Vitamin C and E: These vitamins help improve blood circulation, which makes sure that your beard gets the nutrients effectively. Found in fruits, vegetables, and nuts.

3. Exercise and Beard Growth

It’s a surprise to me how many “beard growth” tips are really just tips for a healthy lifestyle. But that’s for a reason.

Living a healthy lifestyle is defined as doing what you can for the health of your body and mind. And your beard is part of your body, right? So, it only makes sense that this is part of the puzzle.

Exercise does a few things to help your beard growth. Firstly, exercising temporarily boosts testosterone levels. Testosterone is linked to increase beard and hair growth.

Secondly, exercise improves blood flow and general circulation, which, as we talked about earlier, helps carry the proper nutrients to your beard and aid it in it’s growth as well.

4. Get Plenty of Rest

Sleep is amazing, in fact, it’s one of the favorite things of humans in general. Otherwise, why would we need it for 8 hours a day?

Sleep is a process that helps our body’s repair and relax. Damaged cells, muscles, nerves, and a whole lot more are regenerated during sleep.

Having uninterrupted sleep, for 7-8 hours per day, is necessary in order to keep hormones balanced and improve the effectiveness of your body to grow a beard.

These tips may sound like the basics for basic human health and wellness, but if there’s something that makes a difference, it’s the basics.

5. Avoid Stress

Now, this one may be a difficult point for people to enact because not all stressors are directly controllable. Your job, family, relationships, and whatever else are constant worries for many people. So, we get it.

However, keep in mind that controlling stress is also your responsibility. Stress negatively impacts your hormone balance, and thus, will affect your beard growth as well.

The best thing you can do is find a way to manage and mitigate stress where you can. For some, that’s yoga, for others, that’s meditation or exercise. Find something that works for you.

6. Use the Right Beard Growth Products

Using the right beard products can significantly impact the health and appearance of your beard. Incorporate these into your grooming routine:

This one is simple and obvious. Using the right beard products increases not only the health and wellness of your beard hair but also it’s appearance. Check out the following:

  • Beard Oil: Keeps your beard soft, moisturized, and reduces itchiness. It also promotes healthy growth by nourishing the hair follicles.
  • Beard Balm: Combines the hydration of beard oil with the styling capabilities of beard and mustache wax.
  • Beard Wash: Unlike regular shampoo, beard wash is specially formulated to clean your beard without stripping away too many of the natural oils that your beard needs.

7. Regularly Trim Your Beard

Something that you will have to do religiously if you intend on growing a beard (and wearing it out in public) is trim your beard. I said trim, NOT shave.

Most beards grow in slightly unevenly. This is normal. Typically, the hair on your cheeks will not grow as fast as the hair on your chin or around the goatee area.

In order to keep your beard looking kept, our pro-tip is that you trim the longer areas to match the shorter ones without trimming those shorter areas.

This way, as the beard grows, you can length the trimmer guards and let the beard grow without ever dealing with the awkward beard phase or the messy and patchy look.

8. Brush and Comb Your Beard

This part is easy and pretty straightforward. Get yourself BOTH a beard brush and beard comb. The brush should prefereably have natural boar bristles.

Brushing your beard helps exfoliate the skin underneath, spread oils evenly, and reduce flakes and irritation.

Combing your beard helps the beard grow straight and without any knots, kinks, or ties that otherwise might damage or affect the look of the beard.

See? Simple.

9. Hydration and Beard Growth

You hear it everywhere all the time. Drink more water and stay hydrated. Why does this seem so hard to do?

Being hydrated enough keeps your skin and hair healthy. Aim for at least 8 glasses of water throughout the day, especially one right after you wake up.

10. Avoid Harmful Habits

Perhaps one of the most effective things you can do is actually avoid the things that otherwise could damage your beard.

Excessive drinking, smoking, drug use, or other harmful activities often restrict blood flow, therefore lessening the amount of blood that makes it to hair follicles, muscles, and other important things.

Reducing or eliminating these habits is best not only for your beard but for your overall health as well.


Growing a beard is a commitment that requires patience, care, and the right approach. By following these tips and tricks, you can support your beard’s growth and enjoy a fuller, healthier beard. Remember, consistency is key, and with time, your dedication will pay off with the beard you’ve always wanted. Embrace the journey, and enjoy the process of growing your best beard yet.

Ultimately, growing a beard is a commitment that requires patience and the right mindset. However, by following thees tips and tricks, increasing your overall health, and being consistent, all your effort and dedication will pay off.

You’ll have a beard! And maybe even a 6-pack if you take the exercising and nutrition seriously. Either way, you’ll probably be a happier and healthier bearded individual, and that’s what Volt is all about.
