With beards being a facial hair trend that isn’t going anywhere soon you may be frustrated that your beard isn’t growing in the way you want it to—but don’t give up. Here’s how to fix a patchy beard.

We make it easy by providing you with a body wash you can use from head to toe, no extra step or product required!
Whether you aim to grow scruff, a short beard, or a long and bushy beard it’s time to start applying a daily conditioning balm.

Step 3: Uncle Jimmy’s Beard Growth Oil

The difference is that it will work from the roots up creating a healthy foundation to grow the beard you are waiting patiently to rock. Just like the conditioning balm, a little bit of beard growth oil goes a long way.
Resist The Temptation To Trim
At most, trim, shape, and clean up the edges of your patchy beard, but the best way to fill in your beard is to allow it to grow unobstructed for at least a solid 4 weeks. The longer it grows the more it fills in and the easier it will be to hide your patches with the longer surrounding beard hair.

Use a bristled beard brush to comb and shape your growing beard into place.
Finally, once your patchy beard fills in maintain, your daily product grooming schedule to keep it soft, full, and healthy.
