How to grow your beard naturally?

How to grow your beard naturally? This is one of the questions I receive the most via my Instagram page Le Male Français or my Facebook account Le Male Français . It is true that having a beard, and in particular the 3-day beard , has become essential in the look of men, even a real effect of society. Not an actor, not a singer, not a celebrity today shows up without a 3-day beard, at least. The beard also makes it possible to reinforce the masculinity of the face and then, we must not lie to ourselves, makes it possible to avoid daily shaving!

But the hairiness of the beard is very variable depending on the men. While some have heavy, brown hair that requires them to shave or clip every day, others struggle to have a full beard. Some have indeed hairs that grow scattered on the face, not allowing to have a homogeneous beard. They have what is known as a sparse or incomplete beard . Others just have a so-called collar beard, and would like to have more beard on the cheekbones

Also, the question how to grow your beard, whether quickly or naturally, comes up very frequently.


Well, we are not going to hide it, it is difficult to fight against our nature, and especially against our genetics. Because the growth of beard hair is inscribed in our genes. But, here are some tips on how to grow a beard naturally.

Why is my beard not growing naturally?


As I said above, this is related to genetics. So, basically, no luck!

Absence of hair follicle


If hair is not growing on certain parts of the face, there are no hair follicles there. The hair follicle is the cavity in which the hair originates, a particular structure of the skin that produces the hair. And in this case, impossible to have a beard on this place, even if you apply beard growth products. To see if you do not have a hair follicle, it is necessary to make an appointment with a dermatologist. Your only solution in this case will be to do a beard transplant.

A sleepy beard hair

On the other hand, it is possible that your hair wakes up late, and that it does not arrive until later. In this case, I advise you to have perfect, well hydrated and clean skin, without dead cells that would clog the pores of the skin.

You may also have folliculitis, an infection where the hair fails to stay in the hair follicle and falls out.


My tips for growing a beard naturally

Below are my tips for growing your beard naturally. You will see, there is nothing rocket science

​​Oils to grow your beard naturally.

Some vegetable oils can have beneficial effects in hair growth.


Use eucalyptus oil for beard growth


To grow your beard naturally, you can use eucalyptus products. Eucalyptus is indeed known to allow the growth of hair and hair. And eucalyptus, it is easily found in essential oil. Here is what I suggest: buy essential eucalyptus oil that you will mix, 2/3 drops no more morning and evening, with your moisturizer. You will have thus made a home care based on eucalyptus.

Use Castor Oil to Grow Beard Naturally:

The famous castor oil! This vegetable oil is obtained from castor seeds and, in addition to its moisturizing effects for the skin, is known to promote the growth of nails, hair, eyelashes, eyebrows, and beard hair! But beware, contrary to what many people may think, Castor oil for the beard is not a miracle product to grow beard hair. On the other hand, it will allow you to have thicker, more beautiful, stronger hair. Thus, if you have fine hair, this will allow you, visually, to have a fuller beard.

Castor oil will also help clean up the hair follicle, and therefore keep the hair healthy.

The downside with castor oil is that it is very greasy (and not very pleasant to use).

Use grapeseed oil for beard growth:

Grapeseed oil is recognized for its restructuring properties. It will thus help to treat damaged hair and make the hair more beautiful, fuller and therefore a thicker beard.

Hipster mode

An effective diet to grow your beard naturally

Hair growth is of course linked to the production of testosterone and by dihydrotestosterone, but also by certain vitamins (including vitamin B8) and minerals (including selenium). By having a suitable diet, which allows you to produce it, you can grow your beard naturally. So, here are the ingredients that are to be preferred:

  • the grape,

  • nuts,

  • eggs,

  • potatoes,

  • Fish,

  • the chicken,

  • Cod liver oil.

A healthy lifestyle to grow the beard naturally

To grow the beard naturally, you will also have to adopt a healthy lifestyle

Avoid stress to grow a beard naturally

If you are going through a period of stress, especially high stress, then you may have difficulty in having a beard that grows naturally, or even you may find that you are losing beard hair. This is called an alopecia areata. No worries about that, it's just momentary, while you're under that stress.

Do not hesitate to put in place actions to confront this stress and ensure that it has the least impact on your beard, but above all on your morale and your health. Do a lot of sports, cardio, go see your friends, go out. In short, you will have to occupy your mind.

Sleep well to grow a beard naturally

Another element to take into account to have a beard that grows naturally, in the best possible conditions, is to sleep well. So if you're used to going to bed at 3 a.m. (getting up at 8 a.m.) because you can't leave your Netflic series, you'll have to change your nighttime habits!

You should know that it is while we sleep that the cells of the skin work and renew themselves. So if you have a moment of sleep, these cells will work less.

The sport to grow the beard naturally

Last advice on the lifestyle to grow the beard naturally, play sports. If you're into jogging but lying on the sofa, with the plaid and Netflix, you'll have to move. Playing sports has an impact on blood micro-circulation, which will directly act on the hair follicle. Thus, your hair follicle will be in better shape and inevitably, the hair will grow optimally.

Treatments to grow beards naturally

In addition to a healthy lifestyle, you can also apply certain treatments to your face to grow a beard naturally.

Brush to grow beard naturally

Another gesture to grow your beard naturally is simply to brush your beard every day! To do this, you will need to use a beard brush which will not only discipline the hairs of your beard but will also have a big impact on the hair follicle, the small cavity under the skin from which the hair takes root. Indeed, if the hair follicle is in good shape, then you will allow your beard to grow properly. If, on the contrary, the hair follicle is not in good shape, either the hair may not grow, or even worse, it may fall. This may in particular explain the holes in the beard .

A scrub to grow the beard naturally

Another treatment that you could do to grow your beard naturally would be to perform a beard scrub regularly. The beard scrub will indeed act as if you were brushing the beard by activating the hair follicle, and therefore waking it up if it was asleep.

The beard scrub will also have another impact, that of deep cleaning the skin of dead cells, but also your beard, insofar as you are looking to grow the beard naturally to fill in the holes in the beard . And this will allow in particular to thoroughly wash your beard, in particular of the excess of sebum which could be found.

Moisturize to grow beard naturally

If you are not used to moisturizing your face on a daily basis, then you will have to change your habit. Because the hydration of the skin of the face has a direct impact on the quality of the beard, and in particular on the fact of growing the beard naturally.

Indeed, by moisturizing your facial skin, you will also hydrate the hair follicle which is under the skin. And the hair follicle is this little envelope that contains the bulb of the hair, from where the hair takes root. As you will have understood, if the hair follicle is not in good shape, the hair will necessarily not grow in the best conditions, or even, it could be asleep and no longer grow! But that's only momentary. So moisturize your skin to grow the beard naturally, to have beautiful, shiny and strong hair.

To hydrate the skin, and therefore the hair follicle, you have three solutions:

  • apply a moisturizer morning and evening, which can be combined with a moisturizing serum

  • apply a beard oil every day, in the evening for example.

  • make a beard mask once a week.

Massage to grow beard naturally

Finally, my last tip for growing a beard naturally would be to massage your face regularly. So either by yourself or you can ask your partner to do it for you. To do this, you can massage yourself either by applying your moisturizers in the morning and evening, or you can do facial yoga.

The massage will, like the exfoliation, participate in accelerating blood micro-circulation and therefore activate the hair follicle.
