Learning how to grow a beard is the first step in the Cool Beard Pro Growing Process. There is a ton of misinformation out there that people spread that falsely proclaim to grow whiskers quicker – but it just isn’t the case.
We want to provide the best information we can on the subject, while also debunking a few of these myths that have surfed on how to grow chin hairs faster. Below you will find a few myths, and of course, a few methods that actually do work on growing out a nice full beard (or mustache if that is your preference) that you can impress your friends and loved ones with.
Let’s dive in!
Beard Growing Myths
Does Shaving Make Hair Grow Faster?
The short answer is no.
Shaving will not make your hair grow faster. Instead, shaving gives your facial hair a blunt edge to it. This blunt edge makes it look darker and “thicker” because of the darkness when in actuality it is the exact same as it was before (just shorter due to the you know, shaving.)
This is a common myth, but at the end shaving to make your beard hair grow faster is jut that – a myth.
My Beard Will Never Grow
A lot of people trying to grow out their facial hair in earnest are underneath the impression they will never be able to grow a full, luxurious (perhaps, even glorious?) beard.
They believe because they are in their 20s and simply cannot grow a full beard, they will never grow one. The truth is, most men cannot fill out a full beard until their late 20s and often are in their mid 30s before they really start hitting their stride! Don’t fear, there is still time to beard!
Are There Hair Growing Shampoos I can Use?
Similar to shaving your beard to make it grow faster, using shampoo that is designed to grow your beard quicker is usually a false flag. There are some products out there that can help, but most of the time those products are just swelling the hair follicle to give it a “thicker” appearance without actually affecting your growth rate.
Shampoo beard growing magic… an unfortunate myth.
How Do You Make Facial Hair Grow Faster?
There are plenty more myths out there on facial hair growth, but those are the top 3 I see often when people ask how they can start growing a nice, bushy beard for themselves.
Don’t fret though, there really are some strategies you can utilize regardless of your age to help you get that beard coming in quicker. That being said, you want to give your beard at least a 3 month shot at growing out. The best beards, regardless of growing strategies, are going to be the ones that are the products of that old annoying virtue called patience.
How to Grow a Beard Faster By Taking Care of Your Face
One of the best ways to grow a beard quick is by taking care of the landscape that the beard is going to grow on -i.e your face.
It sounds strange, but if you want your beard to grow in as quickly as possible you want to have good skin. That means exfoliating once a week can make a relatively big difference in the rate of hair growth for you. You can do this by exfoliating once a week. If you are unfamiliar with exfoliating, basically you are just scrubbing your face with a specialized lotion built for exfoliation (for men specifically) and forming a mask.
This exfoliation mask for your beard is left on for about 10 to 30 minutes, after which you can go ahead and rinse.
Along with exfoliation, make sure to clean your face daily using a mild cleanser. These cleansers and exfoliation is getting rid of dirt and keeping your pores open which will encourage the smaller hairs to finally grow. Moisturizer with eucalyptus can help in this process as well because these moisturizers help to eliminate dead or dry skin that holds up the process for new hairs to grow.
And now… my favorite piece of advice on how to grow a beard fast… get plenty of sleep.
Sleep is a fantastic method for growing out facial hair quicker. The reasoning being is that sleep helps you to regenerate your cells, this includes skin cells which beard hair is part of. Therefore, the better and healthier you sleep, the faster and more full beard you will be able to grow.
Who said you can’t accomplish great things from getting your beauty rest?

Using Vitamins and Supplements for Beard Growth
Along with having a good skin care regimen, you will want to also be taking the right kind of vitamins and supplements that promote beard growth as much as possible. Some people might be a little “skeptical” on whether vitamins can really help beard growth, but if you think about it logically it makes total sense.
Your body tends to work better in all aspects of your life if you are in better shape and are taking good care of yourself. So it goes to reason that you will be able to grow a beard much quicker if you are also getting the right kind of nutrition that your body needs.
Here just a few tips for best beard growth results:
- Use 2.5 mg of biotin every day. This is just a supplement and you can find it practically at any health food or vitamin store in your local area. If, for some strange reason, it is not in your local GNC you can buy it off the internet through Amazon. (Which of course is more convenient anyhow)
- Get some Vitamin B! Vitamin B has been shown to promote healthy hair growth, which includes… you guessed it… fast beard growing! Specifically look out for B12, B6, and B1 as these 3 B vitamins tend to be the best for hair growth.
- Eat a huge hamburger… okay it does not have to be hamburger but you should increase the amount of protein you are feeding yourself. This can include pork, fish, beef, chicken, really any kind of protein you fancy to eat. This kind of carnivorous protein promotes beard facial hair growth.
- Of course… eat fruits and vegetables too with all that meat. A well rounded diet ultimately is what will give you the best shot at growing your beard to glorious status, and that means yes… you should eat that broccoli on your plate sitting next to the sizzling steak.
Keeping track of your health isn’t just good for growing out a beard quickly, but it is good for the rest of your life too. You will want all the extra energy that eating healthy will provide you with when you have your full beard and want to go out on the town to show off how awesome you are.

Our Greatest Virtue… Patience
Sometimes good things only comes to those who wait.
That includes growing a nice, full, luxurious beard.
Even when you combine the right combo of vitamins, supplements, exfoliating your skin and having a good daily skin care regimen going… you are still going have to wait it out at the end of the day. This also means absolutely no trimming of your beard and no shaping of it. You have to let the beard grow out naturally at first if you want to grow it quicker. Sometimes this means bearing through having stiff, coarse beard hair.
If it becomes too rough though, there are always creams you can use to soften your beard to make it less itchy.
And as mentioned earlier in this post, absolutely do not shave your beard thinking it will grow back faster! You could potentially lose weeks worth of growth if you did this, which would totally suck and be depressing.
Do all of the above and combine it with the virtue of patience… you will go far with your beard.
Besides, as far as “things to do to grow a beard” go, waiting around and doing nothing is a pretty simple thing and easy thing to do.
