Why won’t my moustache grow?
Everyone loves that rugged look, and the moustache is many times high on the list of preferred facial hair. At times, it just won’t grow right. The question on many men’s minds will be, why the slow development? The answers most of the time are much closer to home and it’s so easy to remedy this particular situation.
First up, check your diet. Nutritionists have many times advocated that one take foods rich in vitamins A, C, E and varieties of vitamin B. This is because facial hair growth can be affected by both macronutrients (proteins, fats and carbohydrates) as well as micronutrients (vitamins and minerals). Since testosterone plays an important role in facial hair development, you will also need to ensure that your Zinc levels are up, along with vitamin D and Magnesium which will work best for you.
It is advised to also maintain a proper, active lifestyle and get enough rest as that also affects your ability to grow a moustache. After an active day, your body needs enough rest to recover. It needs to rebuild, repair and grow. Therefore, as an adult you have to maintain healthy sleep patterns, clocking at least the recommended 6 hours of regular sleep. Try to relax too. Stress will usually lead to a number of issues including a weakened immune system, which will then result in a slower hair growth.
Quit smoking. Smoking has a similar effect to hair as aging. When you smoke, it impairs blood circulation. This means that the capillary blood flow to the root of the hair’s root is reduced, meaning that cells are denied the vital ingredients for normal facial hair growth. Cigarettes contain thousands of chemicals which cause oxidative stress on all types of hair, as well as affecting pigmentation. If you’re having trouble growing your moustache, it’s probably time to check the habit.
