I will tell you the simple tips of not touching it frequently; don’t look at the mirror.
Every so often, if you look at the mirror, you will definitely find some loophole in your beard. And you will feel like to trim it down. So, the process of having a long beard terminates at the middle of nothing.

Quit smoking – it is injurious to your health.
Beard oil also helps to grow your hair at a faster rate. It contains ingredients necessary to stimulate the growth of your hair. The essential vitamins and proteins amalgamate into it help to grow hair in a mature way.
Once you massage your beard with these oils, it moisturizes and softens it. As a result, you will get a masculine look.
On top of that, it helps to open the pore blocked by dirt. Thus, the patchy part tends to grow hair in the future with full pace.
Beard Balm is similar to that of beard oil. Both contain essential ingredients necessary to aid in the growth of beard. However, if you want to provide the shape to your beard, you can use beard balm.
Aloe Vera Gel
