I hear shaving helps your bear grow faster or whatever... just keep shaving and pray it will grow darker.
You don't want a full beard of peach fuzz, dude.

Don't worry, I'm 20 and barely grow this patch of scraggly hair barely resembling a beard.
It's genetics.

Let it grow for a really long time as a full beard. Then shave, its helps everything grow in better. Although you'll look like a hobo its worth it.


My brother taught me this and he actually was a hobo for about 2 years so he knows his ****.

shave, let it grow a bit, shave, let it grow a bit more, shave. shave. shave. shave. New hair will come in and it will be light, shave it off. repeat. Eventually it'll darken up and thicken up. The tricks is...


SHAVE. SHAVE OFTEN.

Yeah, if you shave, it comes in thicker.

shave like 4 times a day, each time it will grow back the smallest imaginable bit and before long you will find yourself buying your mates booze.

did some research:

Will shaving often increase my beard growth?

Answer:

Short answer: No! People get this impression because when you shave, the “ends” or points of the hairs become blunt instead of soft. So it feels rougher, but the growth is the same. The hair might look darker but it is only because the length is uniform.
One theory for the origin of the myth that shaving makes a beard grow faster is that humans perceive change by proportion.

For example: going from "zero" to half an inch in a month is really noticeable; adding a half an inch to a beard that's already (say) 2 inches long is a much less noticeable change.

In the first case, it's a "100%" proportional change, while in the second case, it's only a 25% change. So even if a beard is growing at a constant half an inch per month, it will *seem* to grow faster at the beginning and slow down as it gets longer, because the proportion of change is dropping.

I don't know what some people say about this shaving often doesn't make it grow thicker or faster, but I've been having to shave 1 to 2 times a week since September because of wrestling and I have noticed it growing faster since I had to shave once a week at the beginning and now I have to twice a week to keep it unnoticeable.

Shaving won't help you to darken or thicken your facial hair. It's a hormonal thing (the thickness is).

every time i shave i notice it coming in darker and more places. At first i just had it at the sideburn area, then the chin area/mustache area. Now its coming in everywhere and its slowly getting darker. I'm going for a goatee haha

That makes no sense. It's a myth, the actual act of shaving does nothing to the hair except make it more uniform when it grows back. The myth was "busted" by many people, go google it.

I;m 16. i get a pretty decent mustache..my chin/chops are weak as hell though.
i get like little pube hairs on my chin and my chops are..well not there.
I just started shaving my chops area around 3 weeks ago, ever week..so i know it'll take some work.

As for getting thicker/more hairs such as my chin.
I caught my friend with a bottle of prenatal vitamins in his car..because I saw him take a couple.
and i was like 'lolwut?"

is there any truth that it helps hair grow? and how many is a safe amount to take a day..
