But, sadly enough they also can’t avoid the phase of patchy facial hair. While you delve deep, you might as well get accustomed to a lot of causes behind this uneven growth of facial hair.
If you feel that it’s a sudden occurrence, just keep a proper check on diet. Also, the cause might be stress or certain hormonal imbalances. Some clinical causes like fungal infections, dental problems, or autoimmune conditions might as well be linked with the abrupt facial hair loss or patchiness. In case, you’ve always had a patchy beard, keep your concern at ease as the reason is genetics, and you can’t do anything about it. But if this entire hair loss thing is new and severe, the best option is to seek a professional opinion.
Now, the above thing is an option to be used for later. As stated in the very beginning, men love dense facial hair. To achieve that fullness, you need to fix all the patches left in your facial hair. Confused?! Well, not anymore. Just follow the section below and read on the 8 best tips to fix your patchy facial hair.
8 Professional Tips To Fix Your Patchy Beard
Trimming Is The Best Option
If you want to minimize the appearance of patches on the facial hair start trimming today. Based on where the patches have formed, trim them carefully, and with much creativity. Try to make these patches a prime part of your look by integrating them from a flattering angle.
To try another option, try trimming the rest of your beard to a minimal length, and that makes the patches hardly visible. Don’t haste with your trimming sessions, instead, ensure that the trimming is prime and perfect, else it would go patchy ever than before.
Proper Cleaning Of The Lines
Flaunting of the patchy facial hair often leads to the trouble of messiness rather than being dapper. So, try to make your patches look a bit clean, neat, and professional, with proper, tidy, and even lines. Also, with this, the sideburns need to be cleaned, and back-brushed, for the perfect blend with facial hair.
This should be like a border that covers the entire face. Similarly, this border placed all around the beard should be clean, and tidy, while detecting areas like the cheekbones, jawline, nose, and lips. So, try well in maintaining the clean lines. Start with the daily and healthy habit of trimming your beard. Then style it with beard oil, and comb it well.
Keeping A Tab On The Rough Unequal Growth
With all the tips, proper care, and maintenance, the facial hair should have an even growth. In case, you are still finding the rough patches, trust me, we would fix that also.
Just keep trimming your beard till it has reached a smooth and short length, and this is primarily the best way for reducing the patches. If not that, you might as well try full-length beard to cover the patches completely.
If you can manage the overall length of the facial hair, try to make it smooth and even to an extent, which makes the patches less visible. For this, take very good care of your facial hair by conditioning it properly. A well-managed beard is always a show stealer and most loved.
