Is it possible to grow beard, even if it's not in my genes?

Growing beard for me is too hard. What should I do?

Depending on your genes, it can be difficult or impossible to grow a beard. If you are under the age of 30 don't assume it is bad genes. Many men are late bloomers for substantial facial hair. Some men find they can induce thicker beard growth through regular shaving even if at first you don't have the hair to shave. You can also try the creams, and vitamin regimens discussed in the main article(below), but for certain ethnicities, it is not possible to grow a beard. Remember your age may be the limiting factor. Many people find that it is difficult to grow a beard until well into their 20s, and some even later in age.

Factors that may be delaying your beard growth:

  1. 1
    Microwaving in plastic containers, even if they are microwave safe or drinking bottled water exposed to sunlight.
    Drinking water from water bottles exposed to the sun or repeatedly heated. Water bottles, when exposed to the sun, release BPA, which scientists think may mimic estrogen which are female hormones. Your body may be reacting to an unnaturally high level of BPA thinking they are female hormones.

  2. 2
    Eating significant portions of Tofu or other soy based products like soy milk.
    Although plant-based proteins are thought to be cleaner and healthier than animal-based protein, they are often based on soy protein, which releases isoflavones in your body, which mimics estrogen in our bodies.

How can I fully grow my beard as I'm 20 years old?

Right from 16 years of age, my beard used to develop naturally. It continues to grow till 19+ years of age. Meanwhile, I use to shave it off, and very often now.

Problems about growing thicker beard?

I have thicker hairs on chin area and on my mustaches, but not able to grow thick hair on both sides of the face. Some patches are not getting filled

Depending on your age, your beard may not yet have reached maturity. The cheek area usually has patchy spots and the only way for you now to fill these areas in would be to use an oil like Castor Oil on those areas nightly before bed. If you want to thicken the hair consider the remedies mentioned like Amla Oil. Let the beard hair grow. You may have to trim your chin and mustache but do not trim your cheeks and see if after 4 weeks you have a fuller beard.

Unavailability of hair growth on face (chin and beard)?

I am around 26 years old, but still no hair growing on the face (Chin and Mustache), I have been consulting with Endocrine specialist his name is Dr.Mathew John and he consulted and injected SUSTANON 250 for 3 months every month I used one dosage of this medicine but unfortunately no improvement after that and who advised me to meet trichologist ,dermatologist for checking and further treatment. In this situation, what must I do to grow hair on the face. Kindly advise please

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

It takes longer than 3 months for your testosterone levels to even out and allow hair growth to start. You should ask Dr. Mathew John if you can continue the injections or look into Androgel as a possibility. The other specialists he has recommended would be worth visiting if you desire a full beard. Some men just never reach the beard potential they always wanted but it is not the end of the world for them. You can also consider hair transplants to your face if you are still not satisfied with other medical treatments. Biotin and avoiding foods with DHT can also help you. Stop Hair Loss by Eating These 18 DHT Blocking Foods lists foods that you should avoid.

I don't a proper beard please suggest a solution for this?

I am 23 still I don't have a proper beard, I feel ashamed of it, please suggest a solution for this

Unfortunately, there is no real solution for males who cannot grow a proper beard because the ability to grow hair on the face is mostly determined due heredity. However, you are still young and many men do not reach their optimum facial hair growth capacity until they are approaching their thirties, so be patient - it could still happen. However, your ability to grow hair has everything to do with how your body reacts to the testosterone it produces and many men have physiologies that are not provoked to grow hair no matter how much of the testosterone your body actually produces.

Thin beard hair needs to grow and over time will the beard will become thicker. Use Hibiscus flowers and leaves and make a poultice to apply to your facial hair several times a week. Castor Oil can be applied to the areas to encourage more hair growth. Invest in a beard grooming kit to brush out your beard daily and exfoliate your face twice a week.

My son is 26 and still does not have a beard, is something wrong, I am concerned as a medical worker?

Is this a medical problem and will affect his ability to masculinity etc. I have tried: Nothing except normal vitamin There could be a few reasons medically as to why he has not grown his beard yet. You should have him tested for hormonal functions to see if he is low on testosterone or has a thyroid disorder if he has very little facial hair. Some men do not ever get full facial hair though until they are closer to 35. Since you are worried, you can get his hormones tested and create a plan to treat him when you get the results.
