These ideas will help you determine how to take care of your beard and maintain it to look amazing. However, there are also some myths regarding beard growth you need to know along with the truth behind them.

You need to dye your beard as you grow old

You might see that in some countries, bearded men have dyed beards. It is a part of their tradition, and they have reasons for doing so. In India, it is a custom for old men to dye their beards. However, you do not need to follow it. If you start growing a white beard, it is okay. It shows seniority and wisdom. It is even desirable among women.

You look great with a full beard

Not everyone looks great with a full beard. It depends on the shape of your face and your personality. Some men look amazing with a scraggly or rocker goatee. As long as it works with the shape of your face and you are comfortable with it, there is no need to have a full beard.

Having a beard is unsanitary

It is partly true if you fail to take care of your beard. It is a filter of various environmental irritants like pollen and dust. If you have sensitive skin, you might get irritations because of your beard. Conversely, when you use proper grooming products, it will not be a problem. You can check out for information regarding the correct way of growing a beard.

You need to avoid a beard if working in the corporate world

In some countries, having a beard is not necessarily a good thing. In many other places, though, it shows responsibility and integrity. It also shows strength of character. You need to ask your employer if it is okay to have a beard at work. Besides, if you are applying for a job and you post your photo, the employer already knows that you have a beard. Getting asked for an interview is a sign that the employer accepts you as you are. On a positive note, when you negotiate with others as a bearded man, you will look believable and confident. You can use it to your advantage.

Shaving a beard makes it thicker

It is one of the prevailing myths about beard growth. Avoid shaving your beard in the hope that it will become thicker as it grows back. You need to use beard oil and shampoo for proper maintenance of your beard and to expedite its growth. Shaving has nothing to do with the thickening of your beard. You are only slowing the process down if you keep shaving it off.

Now that you understand the truth behind these myths, it is time to start growing your beard correctly. You might feel uncomfortable at first, but you will eventually be okay with it.
