What can you do about bald spots in your beard? Beard fillers & more

Wat kan je doen tegen kale plekken in je baard? Baard fillers & more

You're really not the only one and you probably see it around you more often. Wearing a beard that unfortunately has holes in it. Irregular coverage. Smooth beard growth is not natural and quite rare. There are several reasons for this. As a rule, you then let the beard grow and you can cover most of the bald spots with the other hairs. Or you keep the beard well short with a beard trimmer. Then you take the unevenness for granted. In itself, it doesn't even have to look wrong at all. Such a shaggy shadow with bumps. It's quite trendy in Hollywood, by the way.

Imperfections can be hip, too!

How can holes in a beard develop?

Beard and head hairs grow from hair follicles. Some grow faster than others. This is simply genetic. This also applies to the durability of hair. In one man it dies off sooner than in another. The durability, so to speak. When a hair "dies" it can be replaced by a new one. Although this is not the case for everyone. The same goes for beard hairs. Hairs may die and not be replaced by a new one. In that case, gaps can appear that, in time, become slightly larger and larger.

Of course, it is also possible that there are no hair follicles on the skin (anymore). Then, of course, you will naturally have no beard growth there either. Scars can also cause beard hair to stop growing there. In that case, the follicles have unfortunately been removed due to the damage. You can also have beard hairs implanted. But those are again the rigorous steps, of course. Painful. Expensive too. You have to be prepared for that. Such a surgically applied beard also gives a somewhat synthetic look. Not natural.

Are the holes in your beard medical in nature?

The appearance of holes in the beard can have several causes. Let's name the main ones:

  • The lack of hair follicles - Whether genetic or not
  • A deficiency of essential vitamins and minerals can cause production from the hair follicles to lag or stop
  • Stress can play a major role
  • Alopecea Areata - A condition that generates baldness in certain areas of the body. This can occur out of the blue with no really identifiable causes. The stress mentioned above could trigger the onset of this autoimmune disease. Not only the beard and on the head but also the nails can be affected. These problems are temporary in some cases and unfortunately there is little that can be done about it. Of course, a visit to the doctor is highly recommended to rule out other conditions.
  • An unhealthy lifestyle

Does a healthy way of life affect beard hair?

Being healthy in life does not necessarily always affect the quality of beard hairs. If you are blessed with strong genes, for example, the hair follicles can take a lot and still survive. But we can generally say that a healthy lifestyle is an essential contributor to a healthy beard. So make sure you drink 1.5 liters of water every day. That helps hydrate dry skin and keeps it elastic. Your hair follicles will benefit from that!

Tip: If you find tap water boring, you can also decorate a pitcher of water with mint leaves, lemon slices, ginger, thyme or fruit. A bottle of water with strawberries, raspberries or blueberries. Not only looks nice but provides a tingly fresh taste. Rather not a splash of lemonade. Less healthy heh! Speaking of which, get some exercise! By exercising you promote the production of testosterone which has a positive influence on hair growth.

Of course, in addition to a balanced diet, you can also take minerals and extra vitamins. Biotin, vitamins A, B (3), C, D, E (almost the entire alphabet!) and Zinc are essential for healthy skin and beards.

How can you reshape a beard with bald spots?

If you have irregular beard growth and can't get rid of the "bald patches" with the rest of the beard hairs, you'll have to deal with it. But: there are other possibilities. You can shave the beard hairs on the cheeks down to the jaw line. So a thin line between the neck and the jaw. So then you get a very clean-lined beard. Like artist Prince (R.I.P) at the time. You can also keep the beard very short. So such a shade of about 3 days.


Are there other ways to camouflage a beard with bald spots?

Fortunately, for masking the gaps, there are supporting means to boost the beard. An excellent remedy is Toppik Hair Building Fibers. Of course, you'll cheat a little but the results are great! Best NASA namely. With these synthetic hair fibers you can fill the gaps in your beard perfectly. And nobody sees it. Of course, pick a color that best matches your beard shade. Just spray and fill. How do you think they do this in Hollywood? A blockbuster isn't just going to be a blockbuster.

There are also men who have blemishes tattooed. This "works" best optically if you keep the beard ultra-short. You also see men having 'hair' 'set' on their scalp. So why not also as an artificial beard. You just have to want it. Various natural liquids or herbal extracts can also have a positive influence and support for the beard such as:

  • Jojoba oil
  • Ginseng
  • Argan oil (we have already written a favorable article about this)
  • Almond oil
  • Hemp seed oil

Of course, we also have an ultimate beard serum with various natural extracts to stimulate beard growth. Let us highlight 1 more sublime product for you.

BEVIRO Natural Beard Booster

Beviro - Natural Beard Booster

Promote your beard growth with this Natural Beard Booster from Beviro. The booster consists of 90% natural ingredients that work together to stimulate your beard growth and provide a thicker beard.

This beard growth oil supports blood flow, activates and stimulates the hair follicles of your beard and gives the hair follicles more energy. This ensures that even in the areas where you normally have little or no beard growth, beard hairs can appear. The main ingredients of the booster are cressatin and guarana. These give your beard more energy and stimulate beard growth.

In addition, the booster is enriched with other key ingredients such as biotin, herbal extracts, keratin, panthenol and nourishing oils that nourish and support both your beard and the underlying skin while growing your beard.

The beard booster is not a magic panacea that will allow anyone to grow a beard, but is an aid for those where things are a little slower. If you're about to grow your first middle-aged mustache or if no one in your family has a beard, the beard booster probably won't help. Therefore, this beard booster is made for those who already have a small base to work with and these people will get the most out of the beard booster.

Should you still be dissatisfied with the lingering blemishes in your beard. Whatever you do about it. You can always handle the blade, of course. Shave every or every other day so you always look fresh and sleek. Crunchy! There, of course, we have the right tools, oils and soaps for you on stage as well. We'll talk about that another time.

Good luck, bearded man!
