    1. What do you recommend if I’m a 16 year old who wants to grow a beard but has bad genes. Beard growth spray, vitabeard, biotin, etc. Thanks.

      • Hello John, thanks for commenting.

        At your age, it’s perfectly normal for a fellow to have no beard or a thin beard. Usually beards start to grow in on men when around age 20, and they get thicker around age 25.

        There are still many ways you can prep your follicles for maximum beard growth.

        First, start taking biotin, a natural hair health supplement, and beard growth vitamins. Please check with your doctor before starting any treatment.

        If, after many months of use, you notice that it isn’t helping, then you can force your follicles to grow by using either the beard growth spray or the beard growth serum. The spray is a lighter touch and should work for most men. The serum is a hardcore product that will certainly work, but you have to keep using it to keep the new strands you form.

        I hope that helps!
