Do you have a patchy beard? Do you want to fix it? YES, then don’t worry as the help is underway.
First, let me tell you that this is not something which you should worry about as it is normal and there is a solution to fix it. So, stick to this article if you want a perfect solution for it.
A Thing to Know!
Please note that the right age to grow the beard is 17 to 25, but exceptions are there. So, don’t expect a full beard if you are not that old as this is totally normal. (1)
A Pro Tip!
Wash your face daily minimum 2 times with soap or cleanser as doing so removes the dirt from the face and open up the pores which ease the way for hairs to come out.
There are many ways to fix this problem, but here I will mention some of the proven and working remedies.

1. Comb Regularly to Fix Patchy Beard
Just like hair our beard also needs the proper cure. Combing the beard regularly increases the blood supply and increase the growth of hair (facial hair) which will fill the patches.
It is recommended that you comb your beard daily 2 times for about 3-5 minutes.
2. Let The Beard Grow (Not a Permanent Solution)
I was also one of those who thought that shaving increases the facial growth and fills the patches, but this is not true as there is no such proven study.
So, let your beard grow and don’t razor it for about 1 month. In this way, you will see the direction of hair growth and where the patchy spots are.
After a month, trim your beard a little bit from cheeks and jawline to make things tidier and let the rest of the beard grow. This will helps in fixing and hiding the patches.
3. Castor Oil Massage
Castor Oil is not only good for your scalp hair but also helps in growing the facial hair and this is a very effective remedy to fix your patchy beard easily.
How to apply?
- Massage castor oil daily for about 5-10 minutes in your beard region
- After the massage, leave it for an hour and then rinse it off with mild water
- Do this daily and you will start seeing the results within a month
4. Onion Juice for Patchy Beard
We all know how beneficial onion juice is when it comes to fixing hair loss. Similarly, this is also a solution for a patchy beard.
Please Note: Before applying onion juice on your beard region test it on a small part to see if your skin is allergic to it or not.
If your skin does not show any reaction you can use it without any risk. It will help a lot in beard growth and in filling the patches. This is my personally tested method.
How to extract and use it?
- Take 1 Onion (if small take 2)
- Cut it and chop it in a chopper
- Squeeze the juice and throw away the rest
- Massage it properly on your beard and leave for about 15-30 minutes (more if you can bear the smell)
- After that, wash it off with normal water and soap/cleanser
To see the quick results, apply it a maximum of 2 times a week (don’t use more than that) for at least 1 month.
5. Coconut Oil Massage
Coconut oil is being used since ancient times for different purposes and you will be amazed to know that it is also very effective in fixing the patchy beard.
How to apply?
- Take some coconut oil on your palm and rub it to make it warm
- Apply it on your beard and leave for an hour before washing it off
It has been proven that coconut oil is good for hairs and help in increasing hair growth. (2) So, apply it with full confidence and you will be happy with the end results.
You can massage it daily for about 5-10 minutes.
A Bonus Tip to Fix Patchy Beard!
There are also different beard oils available in the market which you can apply too. They are also very effective in filling the patches, growing beard and making it look good.
Some common benefits of using beard oils:
- Help in filling patches
- Remove dandruff
- Style the beard
- Help against dry skin and itching
Let me clear you one thing, don’t expect the results within a few days as this will take some time.
But, if you apply the remedies I have mentioned regularly for about 1-2 months then you will definitely see an improvement and see the patches getting filled.
