What’s going on internet it is your boy eric bandholz back again with another awesome episode from beardbrand. A ball is going well on the other side of the internet wanted to talk to you guys today. About being a teenager and growing your beard out. I mean this is probably one of the most frequent questions. That i ever get and I’m hoping that this video is going to be a resource for all the guys out there who see a teenager asking about their beard and what to expect.
When you’re in a school environment you’re around you know hundreds of other kids. It’s really easy to compare yourself to others. And as a teenager is going to be really important for you to. As much as possible not compare yourself to others you know when you’re in the same grade. You know someone may actually be a year older than you. And someone maybe where someone may be a lot younger than you. But you don’t always know the exact age of your other classmates and your peers.
So in their growth journey you know they may be growing facial hair at the same age as you. But because they’re you’re older than you or 18 months older than you know. You don’t have facial hair but they do so what’s going to be really important is. The first of all don’t compare yourself to others look. Instead at your classmates for inspiration start to look at your parents and your family. And see what kind of facial hair does your dad have does your uncle have does your grandfather. Have is it within your genetics to grow a pretty good beard. That’s going to be your first answer to the question of will I be able to grow a beard.
You know I don’t know the answer that I have no idea if you’re going to be able to grow a beard. But if you’ve watched my video on how to grow a fuller thicker beard you’ll see that as you get older. Your beard is going to get thicker and fuller overtime so everyone’s going to hit puberty at different periods of time. I personally was a late bloomer I want to try to throw some old photos up of me.
So you can see what I used to look like when i was in college and when I was in high school. And kind of see what lack of facial hair that I had you know my journey started personally. I just had sideburns and I just grown to about right here that’s all that but that was all the facial hair that I had until to college. And then into college I just grew a little bit of chin hair you know right here. And then once I got out of college I started growing the full beard.
But I only kept it to about one week’s worth the time so you know my journey I didn’t. I personally didn’t really start growing a good beard until my late twenties and early thirties. So everyone grows at different periods of time and just because you’re not able to grow facial hair when you’re 14 or your you know 13 or you’re 17 or 18 it doesn’t mean that you’re not going to be able to grow facial hair.
When you get older so the best process when you’re still young is to grow what you got. So that’s kind of what I did as my chin hair grew i had a chin beard and when my sideburns came in I grew my sideburns and or when your mustache comes in. Your mustache and then shaved off like the other areas that you know still aren’t fully converted to terminal hair. Terminal beards so the little blonde hairs that you see and we’ve got them all over our our bodies there through and hairs that up yet to turn into. What’s called a terminal hair? And the terminal hair is the adult hair for lack of better terms and that’s the hair that’s going to be like that the curly fat bit coarse beard. So not all of those blonde hairs are going to convert into terminal hairs.
But a lot of them are so that will give you an indication as to how thick or how full with your beard. May be as you get older is by looking at those blonde hairs and seeing how dense are full. They are and patience is really the the biggest thing when you’re a teenager the patients you know you just you gotta wait.
You know it’s going to come in it’s going to get thicker. It’s going to get fuller it may not be you know the most incredible beard on the face of the planet. It may not be you know a chris millington beard or Ricky hall beard. But is going to be your beard and it’s going to be your own. And just going to allow you to define who you are as an individual but don’t be owned. All these these grandiose type appears out there there’s really full thick ones because the reality is most of you guys.
The majority of you guys are going to have that type of facial hair. And the guys that do have that type of facial hair. They don’t want it so they just shave it off all the time. And they don’t grow their beards out it’s the weirdest thing on the face of the planet. I don’t know i don’t understand it it’s the the grass is always greener.
So be patient no one knows what you’re going to be here. Your beard is going to do unless you start looking at your family. That’s going to be the best indicator and you know if you’re in your teenagers don’t even consider rogaine. Don’t even consider a beard and plants and don’t do any of that really. Like your beard is going to come in into your twenties and thirties and if you want to do anything when it comes to growing your beard.
That’s when you’ll be mature enough to to kind of understand you know what your potential is going to be. And if it’s really important to you so I hope it helped man. I know it’s a tough time. It was a tough time for me and when you want things that you can’t get it makes it even tougher. So it’s going to be really important to embrace who you are and what you are. And the situation that you’re in the current time. Hope you guys found value share with the other friends out there a ground. Share with the other teenagers that you know thanks for subscribing cheers and beard on.
