Having a patchy beard, or uneven facial hair growth, is a condition that makes it challenging to grow in a handsome looking beard or moustache. Poor facial hair growth can be genetic, as well it may be related to several factors that cause hair loss for males.

If facial hair is patchy and thin it can be hard to keep up with the latest facial hair trends, whether it’s a moustache and goatee combo, long sideburns, or a classic short beard. When it comes to fashionable grooming, patchy hair growth can mean growing in a full and consistent beard is almost impossible without professional help.

Another reason men want more facial hair is to change their personal appearance, for instance, a beard can conceal a small chin orelongate a round face. A beard can work like magic to enhance or minimise facial features.

Hair loss on the face and the inability to grow a full beard may be the fault of genetics, getting older, alopecia, and/or a hormone imbalance. There are professional hair loss options to treat this condition, including a beard transplant and hair regrowth therapy.

What Causes: Patchy Beard

A good place to start understanding your patchy beard condition is with what causes hair loss in men. Here are several factors responsible for uneven facial hair growth or loss of facial hair.

  • Alopecia: Specifically, alopecia areata is immune system related and causes patchy hair loss. It causes cells in your immune system to surround and attack your hair follicles. It is not considered a serious medical condition. Hair growth treatments are available to help with this type of hair loss.
  • Hormone imbalance: Here’s how male hormones related to a patchy beard condition. Dihydrotestosterone (a derivative of testosterone) in excessive amounts can cause hair loss. DHT affects hair follicles by shrinking and shortening the hair, which makes it easier to fall out,as well as hard to regrow.  
  • Ageing: Male hair loss can start in your teens, and progress into your early 20s and 30s. Up to 50% of men will experience a degree of hair loss by the time they reach their 50s.
  • Genetics: The most common form of hair loss for men is male pattern baldness. Also known as androgenetic alopecia,male pattern baldness is a hereditary condition. Studies have shown genetics account for about 80% of male pattern baldness.  

Other factors may include a poor diet, extreme stress, and medication use. If you are unsure what type of hair loss you are experiencing, an Este Medical hair loss consultation is the best way to determine the most ideal patchy beard treatment.
