How to deal with a patchy beard

So you mightn’t have the perfect beard in your opinion — many of us don’t have our most dreamed of beard and some probably take one look at a picture of Drake and feel nothing but jealousy.

Just look at him, not a single patch in sight and he knows how solid of a look he’s got — Drake definitely has one of the best beards in hip-hop.

So maybe, unlike Drizzy, you have a few patches in your beard but don’t really want to go to the extremity getting a beard transplant — yes, those exists and, as far as we are concerned, are a legitimate solution if you struggle with a patchy beard.

The short of it

Genetically, you can’t really do much. It’s not as if you can edit your DNA to give yourself a more luscious beard but that doesn’t mean the fight is over.

One thing you can do to help is to allow your hair to grow. If you’ve got longer beard hair then you’ll be able to use it to give a more fuller appearance — something some men will do if they’ve got some balding patches atop their head.

Another thing you can do it to shave along the line of which your beard is the most full — like Drake has in the picture above.

This will also help give a more fuller appearance, as if styled in such a way on purpose too. Getting a shave up and down your neck will also help complete this appearance.

A little bit of TLC

The only thing you can do aside from that is to promote hair growth, to do this your best bet would be to apply beard oil, use beard balm and just take care of your facial hair and skin — brushing your beard and/or combing it is also a good idea.

Lastly, my advice would be to simply embrace what you’ve got. Not everyone can grow the same beard, it’d be boring if that was the case. You’ve a unique makeup and have your beard, grow it whichever way you like.
