What to Look for in a Good Beard Growing Product?
Without getting into too much boring detail, you basically need a well-balanced diet with sufficient nutrients and vitamins to experience consistent hair growth. Of those vitamins, Biotin is arguably the most important one as it’s often considered the best thing for beard growth. So if you are struggling to grow a beard, you definitely want to be taking a biotin supplement.
You can read our article about Biotin for beard growth for more info.
Besides looking for top beard growing supplements, You should also consider some form of product that you apply to your face and beard that is designed to nourish, strengthen and thicken your hair as well as hydrating and cleansing your skin. Not only will this assist in the growth, it will also soften your beard and improve it’s appearance.
With that said, let’s take a quick look at the different product options.
1.Beard Growth Kit: By Beard Legacy
We’ll start things off with Beard Legacy’s Beard Growth Kit.
The beard growth kit contains biotin rich tablets and a bottle of beard oil.
You only need to take 1 tablet a day and each tablet contains 5000mcg of biotin. This is a fairly strong amount of biotin and should be more than sufficient if you are struggling to grow facial hair.
Although some customers have noticed hair growth after the 1st couple of weeks of use, it’s recommended to take the tablets consistently for the whole 2 months to see a big improvement in results.
Others have been pleased with the results, stating that they’ve noticed their beard filling out nicely and growing faster in places that it never used to, especially on the cheek area.
The beard oil is a 100% organic oil made of Argan and Jojoba, and is also unscented for those who prefer not to have a fragrant beard.
You typically only need to apply 3-5 drops of the oil once in the morning and once in the evening. After a few uses you should already begin to notice that you’re beard is a lot softer. The oil also helps eliminate beard dandruff and with stopping your face from itching.
Besides getting one of the best supplements for beard growth, you’re also getting a pretty good beard oil too!
2.Beard Grow XL by Delta Genesis
Beard Grow XL is a 100% natural and non-hormonal supplement designed for faster and thicker facial hair growth.
It comes in a capsule form and you are supposed to take 3 (mostly tasteless) capsules per serving, once a day.
Each bottle should last for 30 days and you should at least finish the bottle before expecting good results. Some have said that they noticed a massive improvement after the second month of use which is more realistic as it contains only 2000mcg of biotin which is a much lower dose than some of the other oral supplements.
One of the biggest positives of Beard Grow XL is its effectiveness in strengthening hair and combating hair that falls out easily. As well as giving a much thicker appearance to men with thin hair.
With its lower dose of biotin, it would probably work best for men who already have decent beard growth but are still looking for a small boost in growth but are more focused on achieving a much fuller and thicker appearance.
3.Maxx Beard’s 3 in 1 Facial Solution
Maxx Beard’s 3 in 1 is a solution that you need to apply to your face every night.
The main ingredients behind this product are:
- Niacin and
Ingredients well known for assisting in hair growth and overall health.
Unlike pills and capsules that need to be taken orally, this solution needs to be applied to your facial hair at night, just before bed.
The first thing you’ll notice is that it has a bit of an alcohol smell to it, some users say it gives off a fresh, clean scent. But, if this is something that bothers you, you’ll be pleased to know that the smell fades fairly fast so it’s nothing more than an initial inconvenience.
A warning to you if you have extremely sensitive skin, this solution contains propylene glycol, which helps a lot with absorption but on the flip side, is known to cause some skin irritation. Some users have experienced a bit of beard itch when using this. However, others with sensitive skin have had no problem. I guess it’s all in the luck of the draw.
Having said that, this beard solution definitely assists with facial hair growth… It just flat out works. However, you need to be consistent and patient. I would say, use for at least 6-8 weeks before expecting to see great results. But you should at least notice some new baby hairs starting to grow in trouble spots sooner.
Aside from the growth support, Maxx Beard’s 3 in 1’s overall ingredients are excellent for the overall health of your hair follicles and skin and you will definitely see the difference in the thickening of individual hairs.
4.Polished Gentleman’s Beard Growth & Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner
The next product on our list is a Shampoo and Conditioner combo that has the added benefit of containing all the beneficial ingredients of a beard oil as well.
I’ll quickly run through the list of some of the ingredients it contains and their specific benefits:
Rosemary – Known to stimulate beard growth and specifically improve the condition of the skin cells on your face.
Biotin – No need to go into much detail here as I did so earlier. Biotin is one of the essential vitamins known to increase hair growth.
Manuka Honey – Is rich in antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial properties that are extremely effective in treating and healing your skin.
Eucalyptus oil – Aside from stimulating your hair follicles to encourage beard growth, the oil also helps to improve your beard’s shine and thickness.
Tea tree oil – similar to eucalyptus oil, tea tree oil is also known to stimulate the hair follicles to assist with growth. It’s also rich in antiviral and antibacterial properties which are effective against dandruff, beard itch and acne.
Argan Oil – Very rich in Vitamin A and E, and also containing linoleic and fatty acids, argan oil is especially helpful in moisturizing the beard and hydrating your skin.
The ingredients combine to form a pleasing minty/eucalyptus type scent and if for whatever reason you aren’t a fan, you’ll be happy to know that the smell doesn’t linger for too long.
The nice thing about this Shampoo & conditioner, is that you don’t need to use it every single day. Just 2 to 3 times per week and you will see results.
But don’t expect it to be a miracle growth formula… it’s not. You should definitely notice an improvement in your beard’s growth but it won’t be a major one.
The big difference it makes is in improving the overall health, softness and shine of your beard.
Another plus is that it’s a completely organic formula. No alcohol and other agents that cause skin irritation so if you have sensitive skin, this will be great for you. The only downside to this is that the actual lather could be a bit better but that’s hardly anything to complain about.
Overall, the vast majority of customers were pleased with the results. You know you have a solid product when the only major complaint is that the sticker on the bottle breaks off too easily.
5.Badass Beard Growth by Manskape Co
Badass Beard Growth is a biotin rich, beard care vitamin that comes in capsule form.
The main claims of this supplement is that users will grow their beard hair faster, longer and thicker. A claim that has been backed up by numerous customer reviews. Some have even noted that this supplement has made their hair softer and shinier too.
Although I’m a strong believer in using a full bottle of supplements before analyzing results, some customers have reported experiencing definite improvements in growth after just 2 weeks of use which is a good sign.
As with Beard Legacy’s supplement covered earlier, Badass Beard Growth also contains 5000mcg of biotin per serving. And each serving is 2 capsules.
This is a good thing because if you are worried about taking too much biotin, you can simply take 1 capsule instead, effectively halving the 5000mcg dose.
Another benefit is that this is a completely vegan friendly, non-GMO product. However, the small downside to this is that the capsule doesn’t have the most pleasant smell.
Something that I’m sure you won’t mind as long as you get the results you’re after.
Overall, this is a great product no matter what stage of the beard growing cycle you’re in. Mostly because of the convenience of being able to reduce the dosage when required which will also make the supply last longer.
Any of the above products should definitely give you a big boost in your beard growing efforts.
However, if you are looking for faster and fuller growth then out of all the different products listed above, I would firstly recommend one of the biotin-rich orally ingested tablets or capsules. That should give you the most bang for your buck.
You can even try combining them. Maybe try a biotin rich tablet together with the beard thickening shampoo.
Whatever you do, first look at where you’re currently at before making a decision.
