Does fish oil make my beard grow?
Yes, cod liver oil helps beard growth by boosting hair growth. This is because of the nutrients, minerals and vitamins it provides to your body. Let's say they give your body the necessary ingredients for good hair growth.
I particularly recommend it as a complement to beard growth oils as the castor oil (ricin), the coconut, the mustard or the black seed.
How to use cod liver oil for your beard and make your hair grow?
In general, when I present you with beard oils, the use is done by cutaneous way -on the skin- thanks to a massage or an oil bath.
Fish oil can be used in two ways: per capsule as a food supplement and with the oil itself.
The main advantage of the capsule is the absence of taste and smell that can be quite strong when using oil. We're not going to lie to ourselves, smelling like cod all day in the face is not the best.
To take it as a food supplement, take two capsules per day with meals preferring to take it in the morning.
In the form of oil, it is enough to put 1 or 2 drops in a towel or a washcloth that you will place on your beard during 3 to 5 minutes so that the skin absorbs the benefits of this oil.
The good thing is that it acts on the beard but also on the whole body...
Warning: Do not overdose cod liver oil as this may cause digestive problems or nausea.
