Can bear’s fat grease help one grow a flowing beard? Many people still seem to believe in the myth. In fact, such a belief existed for centuries. Scientific studies have proved that no tonic has ever been found to boost hair growth.

One gets long hair and thick beard thanks to only genetic reasons. However, proper care and attention will provide the necessary conditions for its luxurious growth.

A person who lacks hair cannot grow it with medicines. Even then, oils can be used to soften hair and keep it in the style you wish.

The false belief that bear’s grease would help grow a long beard must have arrived because of the abundant black hair the animal is covered with.

In Kerala too, roadside vendors can be seen selling oils claiming extraction from bear fat. One has to carry out detailed scientific analysis to find out its real contents.

All the same, men who desperately want to grow moustache and beard, very often resort to apply such fake medicines, which sometimes lead to various diseases that require treatment.
