Updated April 17, 2017

  1. A natural way to help grow a beard faster is to apply eucalyptus oil to your beard growth.

  2. Take a daily supplement of biotin. The recommended dosage is 2.5 mg a day.

  3. Shampoo and condition your growing beard.

  4. Eat plenty of green vegetables and make sure you get enough protein.

  5. Drink plenty of water.

  6. Tip

    Trim your beard within a month of growing it out. Trimming will make the ends of your beard shorter but also more uniform. If your beard is itchy, apply a hydrocortisone cream to the area. If you develop a scaly rash, wash your beard with a dandruff shampoo.


    Do not apply a hair-growing product to your beard. It could cause a skin reaction and can be harmful if ingested. If you are prone to acne, a beard may make your condition worse.
