GROWING OUT A beard doesn't happen overnight. It takes plenty of time and patience to get through that uncomfortable transition phase between scruffy facial hair and a full, fluffy beard. But if you're running short on both, a beard growth kit can speed up the process from clean shaven fully bearded.

The best beard growth kits feature both grooming and hair growth products to keep your facial hair healthy and strong as it grows out during that uncomfortable transition phase. Most options include beard shampoo to properly cleanse, balm to style, and oil-serum to promote healthy growth. Some kits are even packaged with derma rollers to activate follicles on your face and beard trimmers to keep your beard length under control. Whether you're growing your facial hair out for the first time or you're a bearded expert looking to maximize what you've already got, here are our top eight picks for the best beard growth kits for every beard style.

Best Beard Growth Kits

What To Consider


If you're trying to grow out your beard, the products you use on your facial hair on a daily basis play an important role in either helping or hindering that growth. While prescription-strength ingredients like minoxidil and finasteride are effective, other plant-based ingredients and oils can aid in creating an ideal environment for hair regrowth.

"The best ingredients for beard oil include a carrier oil like coconut or jojoba oil to ensure the beard is moisturized," says Erinn Courtney, StyleSeat Hairstylist. "Tea tree oil and aloe are also great products for beard oil as they help to soothe the skin under the beard from irritation which breeds a healthy growth environment. Castor oil promotes blood flow and circulation helping the beard grow and flourish."

Promote Skin Health

According to Courtney, keeping the beard (and the skin underneath it) moisturized is key for encouraging regrowth. She looks for beard products that promote moisture to the beard so that it doesn't easily dry and break. "[I like] products that promote skin health and help to combat irritation or ingrown hairs. Oils that help to promote circulation and growth to ensure the beard is full throughout."

How We Selected

We've personally tried hundreds of beard growth products over the last few years and have narrowed down our picks to the best of the best. We put these products to the test on beards of various shapes, sizes, and thickness, taking note of the products that have improved hair growth over time. In addition to performance, we also carefully vetted the quality of ingredients, smell, and function. When it comes to styling, hold and volume, these products solidly outpace their competitors. The eight kits above are our honest picks for the very best beard growth kits to buy in 2024.

Ultimate Growth Kit & Trimmer

This excellent kit is equipped with all the products and tools you need to help develop a fuller beard. For starters, you get a superior precision trimmer with a TK feature that offers eight color coded guides and 45 trimming lengths. Also included: a beard derma roller, which can stimulate collagen, activate the blood flow to dormant follicles and promote hair growth.

Testing Notes: As someone who used to have a patchy beard, the Beard Club’s kit made my beard appear fuller in just six weeks. With consistent use of the growth vitamins in those targeted areas of missing hair, I started to see hair thicken over time. The struggle was real, but after using its box of goodies, all the hair on my face finally connects. Not to mention, a few spritz of the beard growth vitamin spray kept my facial hair hydrated, while the beard oil made my skin feel smooth as ice cream. I also have to give credit to the beard shampoo because it will thoroughly cleanse and wake up your beard.

With all that said, if you're looking to grow a fuller beard or need to do a complete overhaul, this kit has you covered. Plus, it’s easy to pack this kit up for your next trip, thanks to its accompanying travel bag.

The Beard Hedger Pro Kit

Taking care of your beard as it grows requires a bit of maintenance. That’s why we recommend Manscaped’s kit, which offers barbershop-caliber scissors to snip and style your beard to your liking. Also, you can keep your beard under control by using the Beard Hedger. It’s super easy to use and equipped with 20 different length settings to get the perfect trim.

Testing Notes: If "died and gone to heaven" was a product for hair follicles, it would be Manscaped’s all-encompassing beard kit. Not only is everything under the sun in this assortment, but we've actually seen our beards sprout rapidly like a seed planted in the ground. Among other things like dissolving buildup, using the beard wash and leave-in conditioner goes deep to support the hair’s natural growth cycle for a fuller-looking beard. We were very impressed by the leave-in softener that rehydrates the hair with a superior blend of nourishing oils and antioxidants.

The Beard Hedger Pro Kit


Beard Kit For Men

If prescription-strength hair growth ingredients aren't your jam, try this beard kit featuring all-natural ingredients like shea butter and maracuja oil to moisturize and protect the skin. The beard balm provides adds shine and hold to a short beard, while the beard oil softens and tames longer, more coarse beard hair.

Testing Notes: While the kit doesn't quite cater to hair growth, we still love a simple beard care routine that keeps things in check. Use the beard wash as the first step to cleanse the skin and hair before going in with the beard conditioning oil, which makes your hair strong and soft. Finish with the nourishing beard balm to seal in moisture at root and restore shine.

Beard Kit For Men


Scotch Porter Beard Collection

This set from Scotch and Porter features ingredients including biotin liposomes, burdock root, and white willow to condition and moisturize your beard. A healthy beard starts with healthy skin, and these products can help soften and smooth the skin to promote hair growth.

Testing Notes: Talk about a game-changer for the beard. These products work around the clock, literally. We washed and conditioned our beard first thing in the morning and hours later, the hair was still moisturized. Plus, the collection's sandalwood and tobacco musk scent is the best fragrance on the market hands-down. It's long-lasting and landed us a number of compliments.

Beard Kit

Treat your beard to styling products that provide long-term benefits, not just immediate improvements to the appearance of your beard. That said, we love the trifecta in this collection which includes beard and styling balm. Though the standout is the Beard Hero, a hydrating oil which helps hydrate, enhances a fuller look and prep beard to help strengthen hairs to reduce and prevent breakage.

For years, Copenhagen Grooming has shown our beards love. From detangling textured hair and decreasing dryness to softening coarse hair to restoring hair health, its products have proven effective in terms of performance. To our surprise, we've even seen an improvement in our skin tone. And, with continual use our beard has become smooth as butter. The key is simply consistency.

Crafted Beard Growth Kit

Dermarolling has proven to be effective at promoting hair growth where hair follicles are present, which makes it a great tool for growing out a patchy beard. This kit contains a dermaroller, serums and formulas. It's worth it for the dermaroller alone, which not only encourages hair growth but also provides incredible skin benefits.

Testing Notes: Wave goodbye to thin areas and hello to new growth. Give or take 3-4 weeks—and you'll see the best results. While the derma roller activates the blood flow to dormant hair follicles, the real impact derives from the serum. The growth process is accelerated by way of the ingredients: Vitamin E and Hemp Seed Oil. Honorable mention: It's the perfect solution for guys looking to volumize their beard.
