Beard growth serum

What is beard growth serum?

A "beard growth serum" is a product designed to promote facial hair growth, especially in areas where hair may be thin or where people want to increase the thickness of their beard. Beard growth serums typically contain several ingredients that are believed to stimulate hair follicles. By promoting blood circulation and supplying nutrients to the hair follicles.


Common ingredients in beard growth serums may include:


  • Biotin: A vitamin important for hair growth.
  • Minoxidil: A drug known for stimulating hair growth.
  • Vitamins and minerals: Such as vitamin E, vitamin C and zinc, which are essential for hair health.
  • Natural oils: Such as argan oil, jojoba oil or castor oil, which can moisturize and condition the hair and skin.


Effect of beard growth product: Is beard growth serum effective?


Beard growth serum is a product that activates inactive hair follicles. This activation is caused by the hormone testosterone, the same hormone that stimulates hair growth on other parts of the body, such as the armpits, chest, abdomen and of course the genital area. Hormones are transported through the blood and (when functioning properly) reach the hair follicles, where they are gradually converted into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT inhibits hair growth, so that the hair does not continue to grow indefinitely.


For most men with light beard growth or bald spots, this does not mean that there are no hair follicles present at all. The hair follicles are present but are not activated by an excessive amount of DHT. Beard growth serum introduces an active ingredient that modulates (slows down) dihydrotestosterone, and usually this is enough to activate inactive hair follicles.


It is important to know that a beard growth product cannot create hair follicles that are not already naturally present in your skin. However, it can stimulate inactive hair follicles to wake up.


What should you pay attention to when purchasing a beard growth product or beard growth serum??


Pay particular attention to the active ingredients and make sure that the other ingredients have a beneficial effect on your skin. The active ingredients are usually Minoxidil or the more modern (and effective) Neoxyl. Acetyl Tetrapeptide-3 is increasingly used because these substances have proven their effectiveness in regulating testosterone to dihydrotestosterone.


It is important that the other ingredients do not cause irritation on your skin and preferably care for the skin in a natural way. High-quality beard growth products often combine the active ingredients with effective facial care for optimal results.


Is it possible to stop using a beard growth product??


Your skin will not develop a dependence or tolerance to beard growth serum. At any time you can decide to stop using a beard growth product or beard growth serum. However, it is important to realize that the underlying cause of inactive hair follicles will not be permanently removed by using a beard growth product. You introduce an external adjuvant, and without this adjuvant the hair follicles will become inactive again. If you shave your beard shorter, these hairs will remain behind with the new hair growth.


What is a derma roller and how does it stimulate beard growth?


Many men choose to use a derma roller to promote the growth of their beard. A dermaroller is equipped with approximately 200 small needles that create small holes in the skin. These microscopic openings facilitate the absorption of active ingredients. A beard roller is usually used in combination with a beard growth serum or minoxidil (although the latter is not recommended).
