But unfortunately, some of us men struggle with the hair growth on our chin. It just does not grow fast enough. There are hundreds of ideas out there for how to grow chin hair fast, from eating more protein, to quitting cigarettes, to getting enough sleep. Here are some helpful tips for how to grow chin hair fast:
Exfoliate your skin at least once a week.
It is no secret that hair needs healthy skin for it to grow the best that it can. Exfoliating your skin will remove dead skin cells and stimulate the growth of your facial hair. I don’t mean wash your face. I mean exfoliate it. Buy a good facial scrub and put it to work on your skin. It’s easy to not pay a whole lot of attention to your chin when washing and cleansing your face. When it comes to exfoliating your skin, use a small amount and scrub in a circular, upward motion. Afterward, rinse the scrub from your face and apply a good moisturizer. If you already have a goatee growing, you may want to consider a good beard balm.
Wash your face thoroughly every day.
Again, it’s easy to just pass over your chin with a quick rub over and not pay a whole lot of attention to it. That’s no good, but it’s extra bad if you’re hoping your chin hair is going to grow faster. Clean skin promotes healthier and quicker skin growth. Keep that chin area clean if you’re wanting your chin hair to grow fast.
Healthy hair needs quality sleep. Everyone has heard of beauty sleep. Well, the fact is that beauty sleep is not a myth – it’s real. Studies have shown that people who are sleep-deprived are more likely to develop hair problems than people who get regular sleep. Sleeping is the way that the body repairs itself. If you’re not sleeping well or enough, your entire body is going to struggle, including your hair. Make sure that you’re sleeping well to ensure that your body is functioning at the highest level.
Get your vitamins.
There is evidence that certain vitamins affect your beard growth. Vitamin E is one of the most important vitamins when it comes to growing your beard. It is known to promote healthy skin and hair. Your skin needs to be healthy for your hair to be healthy. You can boost your consumption of vitamin E by increasing your intake of raw nuts, seeds, and leafy green vegetables.
Up your biotin. Biotin is a vitamin in the B complex. It promotes the production of keratin along with promoting hair growth. Many dermatologists recommend the use of biotin for overall hair growth. You can increase your intake of biotin by increasing your intake of rice, whole grains, milk and egg yolks.
If you’re too stressed, your hair growth will be stunted. Your anxiety can be directly related to hair loss. Trying to obtain a certain style? You may be subconsciously worried that it may now work out. If you’re worrying, your facial hair growth may slow down. You need to remember that if the particular style you want doesn’t work out, there are literally tons of styles out there that you can try. You will definitely find one that works for you. So just remember what Aaron Rogers told the Green Bay Packer fans in 2014: R-E-L-A-X.
After washing your face and especially after exfoliating your face, your skin will most likely be dry. You need to have a good moisturizer to make sure that your skin is staying well hydrated. If your skin is dehydrated, your beard will not grow as well as it should. I would recommend using a moisturizer – I like coconut oil based formula because they lock in moisture and promote healthy hair growth.
Amla oil is a natural substance used to promote hair health. It’s generally used after
shampooing and in place of traditional conditioners. Apply the amla oil by massaging it into the strands so that it completely covers the beard. After applying the oil, allow it to sit for 15 minutes. After allowing the amla oil to sit in your beard for 15 minutes, rinse it thoroughly from your beard with warm water. The oil will nourish your skin and keep it from becoming dry.
Increase your protein intake.
People who are trying to build muscle realize the importance of increasing their protein consumption. Well, hair is basically spent protein. An easy way to make your chin hair grow faster is to increase the amount of protein that you eat. So, load up on your steak, chicken, fish, beans, or peanut butter. Pretty much anything that is packed full of protein will benefit your beard.
Take it easy on the trimming.
Alright guys, who’s heard if you want your hair to grow back thicker and faster, you need to shave it? Well, there’s little to no actual proof of that being true. In fact, to help your chin hair grow faster, you need to hold off on shaping and trimming your beard so often. That’s right. You need to allow your beard to grow to full length before you do anything to shape it. Cutting your beard hair does have benefits, but it’s going to slow your roll.
Massage your chin.
As goofy as this may sound, massaging your skin can stimulate hair growth. I do not mean a vigorous, deep tissue type massage. I mean a gentle, even pressure on the skin of your chin. Try starting to do it when you’re making a decision at work. Soon, it will become a habit, and your chin will be getting a massage every single day.
Get in the gym, go for a walk, do something other than sit on the couch after work. Not only will exercise increase your overall health, it can also help your chin hair grow faster. Here’s how: hair growth is related to the level of testosterone in your blood. Now some men will just think that they can take a testosterone supplement and they will be just fine. Now, a testosterone supplement may help, but there are some serious side effects that should be considered before taking those. An easier way to increase your testosterone level is to exercise. As you exercise, your testosterone levels will increase which will help your chin hair to grow faster.
If you smoke, stop.
That’s right. Not only is smoking harmful to your health, it is also not helpful for your chin growth. If you already don’t smoke, great, keep it that way. Nicotine reduces your body’s ability to absorb nutrients. As a result of this, your body may not be able to absorb the nutrients that it needs for optimum hair growth.
Pass on the sweets.
More and more research is coming out of the damage of sugar to your body. Recent research has suggested that sugar makes your hair weak. Additionally, eating too much sugar can cause your body to have difficulty growing hair. Natural sugars found in dairy and fruit is less harmful than processed and refined sugar, but should still be limited.
No matter what your goal is for your health, it is absolutely essential that you hydrate your body. If you’re dehydrated, your body will not function at peak performance, facial hair growth included. It is recommended that you drink at least eight 8 oz. glasses of water a day.
Try ground cinnamon and lime juice.
These ingredients can be combined into a thin paste and applied to the skin to help stimulate facial hair growth. Mix 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon with 2 tablespoons of lime juice and apply it to your chin area. Leave the paste on your chin for 25-30 minutes, and then rinse the paste from your chin thoroughly.
These are just some of the many ways out there to stimulate your facial hair growth. There is no absolutely guaranteed way to make your chin hair grow faster. As with all things, you will have to try different remedies to make your chin hair grow faster.
The important thing to remember here is that if your plan for your beard doesn’t work out exactly as your planned, there are tons of other options out there for your face fur. Don’t be afraid to try different things with your beard. Not all beard styles require a copious amount of chin hair.
