There's an expression that says "You are what you eat". Your hair is like a plant. It needs nutrients to grow well. If you eat scrap, you just won't be able to provide the vitamins and minerals your hair needs. In addition to drinking plenty of water for them to grow. You need to have a well-balanced diet. You need to make sure your body has enough vitamin B12, vitamin D and zinc if you want your beard to grow well. We're not here to give you a diet plan, but the better you eat, the better your hair will grow. If your diet is limited to mcdo, frozen foods and a bunch of junk food, don't be surprised if your hair is as bad as your cholesterol level.
2-Sleep and stress
Regeneration is accelerated at night. That's when the body repairs itself and cell growth is at its peak. When your body is not sufficiently rested, blood circulation slows down and this deprives your hair of the nutrients it needs to grow properly. By the way, this applies to your beard as well as your hair. If you're the type of person who goes on a 3-day trip or works 90 hours a week, wonder why you have trouble with your hair. Stress levels cause cortisol levels to fluctuate, which is directly responsible for the regeneration of your cells. Sleep, relax, take a break and your hair will thank you.
3-Facial care routine
Your face is like the soil in your garden. If you don't take care of it, the vegetables won't grow, or your cucumbers may be small and ugly by @#!* Get in the habit of cleaning your face with a mild soap, made for the face and beard. No, not the fluorescent bar stuff or even less with your shampoo. Forget it! Also use an exfoliator 1-2x a week to free your pores of debris and dirt. Exfoliation will promote blood flow and increase nutrient intake for your future hair!
