Home Remedies for Patchy Beard (Solution)
There are many ways to fix this problem, but here I will mention some of the proven and working home remedies.
A Pro Tip!
Wash your face daily minimum 2 times with soap or cleanser as doing so removes the dirt from the face and opens up the pores which ease the way for hairs to come out.
1. Comb Regularly
Just like hair our beard also needs the proper cure. Combing the beard regularly increases the blood supply in the beard region and increases the growth of hair (facial hair) which will fill help a lot in fixing the patches.
This is the most basic step which you have to follow and day by day you will start feeling and noticing thickness in your beard.
It is recommended that you comb your beard daily at least 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 home remedy to fix your patchy beard easily.
How to Apply?
- Take castor oil according to your need and massage it
- Do it 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
Massage it 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.
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 1-2 months.
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 according to your need on your palm
