Everyone covets the opportunity to show off a long and luxurious beard that will give them the sexy, manly look that they desire. Anyone looking for a way to grow their beard thicker and longer would likely love to just pop a pill in their mouth every morning and watch their beard grow longer and longer with each passing day. After all, slow and steady wins the race, right? Well, what it is that these guys have that give them the ability to infuriatingly grow incredible beards without trying is simply an insanely lucky and fortunate combination of genes. How this works is, you are born with hair follicles all over your body, including — of course — your face. As it happens, the hair follicles on your face are the last ones to be activated, and this occurs when you hit puberty. What this means is that if dad has a pretty rocking beard, you can probably count on having the same. On the contrary, though, if your father often finds himself staring longingly in the mirror stroking his chin, then you may find yourself in the same boat.
