Growing a beard is never easy especially in the early stage…It is not for the faint of heart, it requires endurance and willpower. Here is your Beard Growth Plan…`

30 days beard challenge

You’ve made the right choice by consciously choosing to embark on this journey to bearded greatness, which will ultimately transform you into a REAL MAN.

To help you plan each day throughout your beard journey this month, we’ve released the 30-DAY BEARD GROWTH PLAN.

Day 1-3: Don't Shave

Day 1: Don’t Shave

If you’re used to a clean-shaven face, the first week of beard growth is less about what you do, and more about what you don’t do. Be forewarned: Your scruff is about to look weird, and feel weirder, but you have to resist the urge to shave, trim, or cut.
Sit back, eat steak, watch Seinfeld re-runs. As luck would have it, your favorite way to spend Tuesday nights is also a fine strategy for coaxing that stubble to become a bit more manly. “Increasing the amount of protein in your diet — meat, fish, eggs, and nuts—will help the hair on your face grow quicker. Protein is the building block for hair and nails, helping your follicles come in strong and ready for action. What does Seinfeld have to do with it? Research confirms that one of the leading causes of premature hair loss is stress. Less stress, more hair. So eat and laugh, and let the follicular festivities begin.

 

Day 4-7: Soften Up and Oil

Day 4: Soften Up
Designed to take the itch out of stubble, Soft Goat Beard pads are a lifesaver when your pre-beard hits that awful itchy phase. “I like to make the analogy of when guys get their hair cut and you get all those itchy-as-hell hairs in your shirt,” says Bandholz. “Those spears on your neck start stabbing you in the worst way. This is the hardest part of the beard-growing experience.”

Day 7: Use Beard Oil 
If you’ve made it through the first week, your odds of seeing this project through just went up exponentially. After seven days, your skin has had a chance to adjust to the little army of bristles on its surface, and those bristles are starting to soften as they are exposed to the elements, add millimeters, and undergo conditioning. “The hairs will feel softer as they get longer, especially if you use a beard oil to condition them as they grow,” says barber John Rivera at The Art of Shaving in New York City.

 

 

Day 8-13: Exfoliate and Eat Right

Day 8: Exfoliate
When you shave, not only do you remove unwanted stubble, you also scrape off the dead layer of top skin cells, allowing the new, healthy skin underneath to breathe, which encourages hair growth. Swap the razor for an actual exfoliant to achieve the same effect, which will also relieve any lingering itchiness. “Exfoliating underneath the beard will give your skin some comfort."
