You dream of a robust and well-stocked beard. Just like your neighbour, and it gives him so much charm and personality!

Unfortunately, your beard doesn’t grow as you wish and you even have one or more holes. It’s pretty frustrating and we understand you.

But don’t panic, you are just as charming as your neighbour, gentlemen. But above all we give you our 5 tips to solve it!

The causes of a sparse beard

There are 3 factors that can explain why your hair doesn’t grow everywhere or homogeneously.

One is genetics. You can say thank you to your father and grandfather because if you don’t have the fleece you dream of, it’s simply because they don’t either. The level of hair is indeed hereditary, so it is simply a matter of luck.


Then the late growth. Be patient gentlemen. You only reach your full hair potential around the age of 25-30.


And finally, if you suffer from certain disorders such as stress; folliculitis, a bacterial infection where your hair follicle becomes irritated and causes hair loss or alopecia, a condition that causes permanent hair loss to give way to scars.
