Growing a beard is a big accomplishment…at least for me….I had one of those babyfaces well into my 20’s and couldn’t grow an impressive beard no matter how hard I tried. It feels good when you finally grow a beard, but not all beards grow the same. While it can absolutely be discouraging to see patches in their beard. It doesn’t happen all of the time, but for some men, it is a struggle to get a full grown beard. Most people don’t know that genetics plays a big part in how your beard grows. There are some answers on how to fix a patchy beard.
First, one of the most important things you should do to fix a patchy beard is to resist trimming your beard. You should wait for at least a month to see which way your hair is growing and where the patchy spots are before you pick up a razor. When a month goes by you should trim your jawline and cheek while continuing to let your beard grow. If you have a long beard, the patches will get lost underneath the rest of your beard. If you do decide to get rid of the entire beard make sure you check out our shaving cream and shaving brush for the ultimate shave. As well as check out premium grooming products.
You have to take care of your facial hair in order to grow a nice beard. During your phase of hair growth, it is best to apply beard oil and beard balm. It is also good to brush your beard downwards. Brittle beard hair can cause patchy beards so having a proper facial care routine can prevent patchy beards.

Sometimes you can shave at certain angles to camouflage your patchy beard. Shaving the gaps on your cheek and your throat can create angles that are flattering on your face. If you find out your patches are growing in other directions, it is best to keep a trimmed beard. It may be frustrating at first because you want a long beard, but keeping it short can help get rid of the patches.
There are some creative things that you can do to get rid of a stubborn patchy beard. Simply getting an eyebrow pencil and filling in the patchy gaps can help make your beard look fuller. You have to remember to use a color that matches your beard, so you won’t look like a mime. This can help temporarily if you don’t want to shave or trim your beard.
