How to Grow Facial Hair Faster

Updated on April 23, 2016

Get and Grow a Beard Faster

So, you want to look manly? Or is it that you need more hair, but you have none.

Here's a guide on how to grow your facial hair quickly. Of course, you'll need to keep in mind that it needs patience and sometimes luck to grow a superb beard. But don't be disheartened. Just follow my steps and you might be on your way to one superb, fast-growing beard!

Don't Shave

One of my friends, who was only 13 at the time, used to shave in hopes of growing a beard quicker that way. I'm sure you've heard of that trick. Yet, have you tried it numerous times, only with no results?

You won't see any success from following this "trick" — because it is only a myth. The truth is, shaving has no relationship with your facial hair growth. I know some people even also believe that applying shaving cream on your face will make the hair grow faster! Sorry, guys. This won't work either.

The truth is, if your facial hair is growing at a slow rate, you should actually try to shave less often. Don't waste what little hair you do have by shaving it!

Rogiane or Minoxidil

Rogaine or Minoxidil is a medicine known for its hair growth capabilities. This is an over-the-counter drug (meaning you don't need a prescription) that comes in the form of a foam applied onto your skin. Apply it to your face, and don't wash for around four hours.

Keep in mind that there are some side effects, too.

  • The most common being a burning sensation in your eyes, itching, and irritation on the applied area.
  • You may also experience unwanted hair growth.
  • Those with extra sensitive skin may have an allergic reaction.
  • Dandruff is also a common side effect.

If this doesn't suit you, then don't use it. If you do choose to use it, good luck!

Biotin

Vitamin B7 or Biotin is also beneficial for for hair growth.

  • Its rich, natural source is derived from raw egg yolk. However if you consume the egg white part, its effectiveness will reduce.
  • Another good source of natural biotin comes from peanuts.
  • This is also available in a capsule or pill form. A 3mg capsule of Biotin may stimulate your facial hair growth.

Rogaine or Biotin?

Which one is better?

  • Rogaine is more powerful, but has more side effects.
  • Biotin is less stronger acting, but quite harmless.

The choice lies on you. Rogaine usage must be stopped if you face any issues, but Biotin will not give you such quick and direct side effects. Both these drugs can be purchased from online stores like eBay.

Clean Your Face

If you're not seeing much facial hair growth and just little hairs, don't fret. Take care of these small hairs.

  • Regularly clean your face and do not let dust particles and dried cells gather around your facial hair roots.
  • You may have an itchy rash from your hair growth. To prevent this and to clean your beard, use a dandruff shampoo thrice or twice a week.
  • You can also try a watered lemon extract.

Biotin for Hair Growth: Video Review

Massage Your Face

Apply some massage oil to your face and gently rub your cheeks. Eucalyptus oil is very good for this purpose. But do not rub your face too rough, be gentle, to get better results. The sweet scented eucalyptus oil is also very good for your hair’s general health.

These are the methods you can follow to grow your beard faster. Feel free to comment or share your own methods for hair growth.

Remember, don't go for highly advertised but unknown or dubious products! Good luck.

      I use biotin and it works well. I have a full beard and it got so thick that I needed to get it trimmed. The best advice is to just let it grow for five weeks and then shape it.

      My beard isn't horrific, but I'd definitely like it to thicken out a little; grow in the areas that are weak as well. I've read this article, as well as many others, but I just can't seem to get around to trying Rogaine. It sounds like the key to filling in the rest of what I need, but those side effects don't sound exactly appealing either. Considering my face used to be really prone to acne and it still occasionally dries out and I get a few, I fear some decent irritation would occur. You seem at least educated enough on the subject pinappu, so what would you say regarding this?

      I'm not suggesting you guys not to follow these.

      But growth of your moustache/beard is mainly depends on GENETICS ..

      Alright, what this article fails to mention is that some guys will NEVER grow a beard. It all comes down to you and your lucky (or unlucky) genetics. You can try all you want with these products, but if your genetics didn't bless you with the gift of a beard, then you're pretty much out of luck.

      Hi Pinappu,

      i am of 30 years of age now. i am having a little mustache and little hairs on my chin & cheeks they can be feeled but not seen as they are very thin and light color. Also, i am having much hairs in my genetals.

      I want a full beard in my face, so how is it possible ?

      I have read the above article of yours for using biotin and minoxidil for growing a full beard and its side effects but, u haven't mentioned in your article that how much should one take a dose in a day like 1time in morning or at night and with water or milk as i am confused of using it.

      pls describe a dosage overview for adults like me.

      Also is biotin or minoxidil comes in form of a tablet or syrup or in form of a paste & which one is more effective.

      My email id :- mustafaziyai@gmail.com

      Pls take out some time to email me the dosage of biotin or minoxidil.

      I will be glad and thankful to you.

      Waiting for your early response.

      Thanks in advance
