Black men often struggle with bald spots in their beard.

5 Secrets On How To Get Your Beard To Connect

The most common thing I see on any black males social media is: "I can't wait until my beard connects" "When my beard connects it's over" or "Just wait until my beard connects."

NEWS FLASH!!! Two little small patches on your face is not going to make the girls want you anymore. Your still going to look like a regular degular smhegular guy on snap chat. But I understand, nobody wants to walk around feeling subconscious about these bald spots on their face. Beard patches are like missing edges to black females, nobody wants that and everybody wants to find the key to get rid of it.

Well I have five great tips right here. The main objective is to treat your beard like you treat the hair on top of your head. Just because it's a beard, doesn't mean you cant treat it with the tender, love and care you treat your crown.

1. Buy key natural hair products!

You can't just not do anything to your beard and expect those patches to grow. Buy a shampoo, conditioner, and oil. Shampoo and conditioners should be brands that are good for natural African American hair. Cantu, Shea Moisture, and Organix are good products. Then Castor oil will save your life! This oil makes your hair grow thicker and fuller. Other oils such as Argan oil and Virgin Olive Oil are also great!

2. Know your hair type!

Not everybody has the same curl pattern. Some guys have tight curls and some guys have loose curls. So before you buy your products, observe your hair. If your hair gets really dry, buy products that say "moisture" then if your hair stays greasy buy a lighter product to wash your hair.

3. Shampoo and Condition Regularly!

If you keep these products in your hair too long, it will form a build up. you should shampoo your beard once a month. Then just use a conditioner once a week. When you shampoo really lather your beard for a few minutes to get all the dirt out. Then follow up with a conditioner. Leave the conditioner in for about 15-20 minutes then wash it out. And if your just conditioning leave it in for the same time, rinse ad follow up with an oil.

4. Oil is key!

Concentrate the castor oil on the missing patches. Then just massage it on the spots. Try this for 30 days, and take pictures of the progress.

5. Consistency

Don't give up just because you don't see results in the first week. Stuff like this takes time, so keep it up for 30 days, then if you don't see progress, try a different routine.

Let me just say, first and foremost, happy Thanksgiving! This holiday is known as a time for families to get together, to be thankful for the blessings in our lives, and to dig into a lot of very delicious food that you'll be having as leftovers for the next week. However, this family time is certainly not without downsides, as we are forced to confront certain family members on matters that should best be left out of Thanksgiving discussion, and in my case, this happens to be my father, who is the only republican in our family (that I know of).

(FYI: Since I still live with my dad, it's not just Thanksgiving when I'm forced to listen to him talk about politics, as I had gotten a taste of where he stands just from earlier this year alone.)

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.


If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.

November is such an underrated month.
