Are you ready? Let's Begin!
Nutrition is a key component and factor in your beard growing. One nutritional factor is getting enough protein in our diets. Hair is made of a tough protein called keratin. Protein is needed by every cell of your body. Without an adequate amount of protein in our body, the cells in the body will not work efficiently and your beard will have difficult time making new hair.
Try Eating a couple of servings of fish, chicken or other lean sources of protein every day (3-4 ounces)
If you are following a vegan lifestyle try Lentils, Oatmeal, Green Peas, Tofu, and/or Black
Beans. Each one is a great source of protein.
2. Facial Massage
Adding a facial massage to your regimen is beneficial, not only to release tension but to help stimulate blood circulation. This procedure involves kneading and rubbing soft tissues to create a calming effect and to increase the flow of the blood specifically on your face. With proper blood circulation, the hair follicles are fed with an adequate amount of nutrients and oxygen, promoting optimum follicle functioning.

Water keeps your hair well hydrated and helps in the proper growth of your beard. If your hair follicles lack water your hair may become dry, brittle and prohibit growth.
