I don’t know about you, but I find beards sexy. BUT … and there’s a big BUT here, only if they are well looked after, neat. I have completely loved this trend where men grow thick full beards. However, you can tell the difference between those who look after their beards, maintain them and keep them clean, and those who don’t. Promoting healthy beard growth for the man in your life is beneficial to him and you too.

Shaving vs Growing A Beard
There are some men who, like my husband, can go from a smooth face to a full beard in a couple of weeks. Others need a bit of help to encourage beard growth, and one of the issues less spoken about is overall coverage of the beard – patchy beards aren’t attractive, in my opinion.
Men have been shaving their beards for centuries. The earliest mention of shaving a beard is from King David in the Bible. However, shaving is a difficult and time-consuming task. It can take up to 10 minutes to do a proper job, and they need to be done regularly as they grow back quickly. Some men find it easier to maintain their beards instead of shaving them, which takes less than five minutes every couple of days.
Healthy Beard Growth Products
Fortunately, many products are now specifically designed to help men grow thicker, fuller beards. The industry dedicated to promoting healthy beard growth is booming! As with everything, though, if you aren’t sure where to start, it can be daunting not to know what the beard growth products are or what they do. There are all sorts of products designed to aid and stimulate healthy beard growth. Let’s take a look at a few of these products created to promote healthy beard growth for the man in your life now:
A Beard Roller
A beard roller is a tool used the stimulate hair follicle growth through a process of micro-needling. It can make the beard grow thicker and denser and works by increasing the supply of collagen beneath the skin. A beard roller is a cylindrical piece of plastic or metal that can evenly distribute natural oils from the skin and help a person’s beard grow faster.
A beard roller is an economical alternative to using beard oils, balms, and waxes, which are all more expensive. The product also helps to keep the beard moisturized without being greasy like other products. A beard roller also helps men with sensitive skin due to its hypoallergenic properties.
Beard Growth Oils
Beard growth oils have been in the market for a long time and have proven effective in getting rid of beard itch, dryness, and flakiness. They also make the beard softer and smoother.
Beard oils are a must-have for everyone who has facial hair. They serve many purposes. First, they provide essential nutrients that promote the healthy growth of the hairs on a man’s face. Secondly, they help in reducing beard itch and dryness that is caused by dandruff. Finally, they make your beard look more attractive and offer a pleasant fragrance to it as well!
Beard growth oils are made with natural ingredients that help promote hair growth and make it easier for facial hair to grow in thicker. They can be used after you wash your face or before you shave. You can find beard growth oils in many different scents, so it’s easy to find one that suits both your needs and preference.
Beard oils also have other benefits that make them worth trying, such as moisturizing skin, preventing razor bumps, soothing dry skin, softening facial hair, providing UV protection for both the skin and beard and helping condition sensitive skin.
Here are a few oils that work well to promote healthy beard growth for the man in your life:
- Peppermint oil which works to stimulate blood circulation beneath the skin
- Lavender oil, known for its relaxing qualities, it also helps hair grow thicker and faster than normal and has antimicrobial properties which can help prevent fungi and bacteria from growing (gross!) and damaging hair follicles
- Coconut oil is used to smooth the more unruly beard hairs making your beard appear smoother.
- Jojoba Oil is an antioxidant and natural moisturizer that works to prevent your beard being too greasy whilst still moistruising the beard and the skin beneath it.
- Rosemary oil is good for moisturizing the facial skin beneath the beard preventing dandruff of the beard growing in patches.
- Tea Tree Oil is really good for addressing dandruff
A Beard Brush
Finally, a beard brush is essential for promoting beard growth in your man, ensuring he grows a healthy, thick and full beard. There are various types of beard brushes, and I think a lot of it comes down to personal choice, but the most common seems to be the oval-shaped ones.
