The beard has long been associated as a symbol of virility and masculinity. Most men cut their growth short when they start noticing that parts of the beard are coming in thicker, or if parts are just patchy or not growing in at all. Believe it or not, this is completely normal.
Once your child hits the teen years, there is bound to be a sea of change in his personality as well as the way he thinks. Add to this the pressure of wanting to look more mature and older, and your teen has too much on his plate. A physical change that is common to most teen boys is the appearance and growth of facial hair.
Many people dream of growing a thick, luxurious beard or a stylish mustache. Unfortunately, some men can't seem to grow more than a few thin patches. While you can't change genetic causes of poor or uneven growth, there are several ways you can help encourage your natural facial hair to grow in thicker and fuller.
Narrator: Look at that beard: the density, the thickness. It's what a beard is supposed to be! Not this: This is my beard, if you even want to call it a beard. This footage was taken after I let it grow for two weeks.
A beard is the unshaven hair that grows on the chinupper lipcheeks and neck of humans and some non-human animals. In humans, usually only pubescent or adult males are able to grow beards. Some women with hirsutisma hormonal condition of excessive hairiness, may develop a beard.
A "full beard" is one which shows full, unmodified growth on all available areas of the face and neck, including the moustache, chin, sideburns, and cheeks. The term five-o'clock shadow refers to stubble which is very short, apparently only a few hours' growth as it would look at 5 PM after a man shaved that morning. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Growing a mustache or a full beard does take some perseverance and patience, especially since the growth rate will depend on your individual testosterone level and genetics. When it comes to growing a beard, one of the most common misconceptions is that facial hair grows at the same rate as the hair on your scalp. Your beard actually grows faster than your hair, which is definitely a good thing.
Regardless of when or how you shave, your facial hair will always grow at approximately the same rate: About one-quarter-inch per month. In their teenage years, boys experience a spike in testosterone, which results in that unfortunate phase of patchy, unreliable facial hair growth that many young men experience. This is purely coincidental. Your body was simply sorting out the kinks of adulthood at the same time you happened to be learning to shave.
Sorry to say, not all are worthy. But where should you start, and how do you know if all-out bearded glory is for you? Like busy patterns for a bulkier frame and baseball caps for a thinning thatch, facial hair is great for hiding imperfections such as uneven skin pigmentation and acne scars.
