Beard! Growing beard is a trend now, and without any doubt it makes a man look attractive. Properly styled and shaped beard catches the attention of women just by doing nothing.
Well, then again there are misconceptions or myths attached to it that might prevent a guy from growing beard. Every guy should experiment with it as believing these false and designed myths are a complete waste. It is the time to cut these crap out and believe in reality.
Myth 1. You Cannot Grow Beard Because It Is Not In Your Genetics
What? Are you sure? How and when on Earth did you check your genes? Or might be you have made this story just because your father did not grow a beard?
The truth is you require investing enough time on it to perfectly grow a beard like celebs do. You need to be aware of the various possibilities of beard growth that can actually speed up the growth. For a full-grown beard, you need to work for almost 3 months to 1 year rather than just cursing your genes.
Myth 2: The More You Shave, The Thicker Your Beard Gets
You have been listening to this phrase for uncountable times, and undoubtedly there have been times when you almost started believing it.
The reality is when you start shaving; it actually elongates the journey and improves the chances of growing fuller beard. The prime reason that has made this myth almost convince guys of all ages is when you shave your beard using a razor, it exposes the thicker part of the beard thereby making you believe that it actually makes the hair thicker.
Shaving has no relation with the biological or physiological change of the density or growth rate of the beard.
Myth 3: If Your Beard Is Not Fully Grown By Your Early 20’s, It Will Never Show Up Again
The main problem lies in over analyzing without having much knowledge about body type.
The truth is beard tend to grow more and develop better with age. It has been reported that the peak year of beard growth varies from man to man which is around their mid 30’s and 40’s.
Myth 4: Beard Makes You Itchy And Feels Hot

The reality is in case you are lazy this would be the ideal excuse to avoid growing beard, but if you think you can manage, then it is a misconception. Beard is meant to make you look like a man and therefore taking proper care is inevitable.
Myth 5: Beard Has Those Faecal Matters In Them
Where do these concepts even come from in people’s mind? When does your hair follicle start growing organs within it and have genitals to excrete the waste?
Myth 6: Beard Will Leave You Jobless

Myth 7: Nothing Is There That Can Stimulate The Beard Growth
You must have heard from your girlfriend, sister, and mother that they use oils to increase the hair growth. So if you scalp shows positive result then why not your beard.

Myth 9: All Parts Of Beard Grow Proportionally And At The Same Pace
