I actually had a similar problem with my beard for the longest time. It grows decently but once it gets to about two and a half inches long it starts falling out fast and getting really scraggly and rough looking.
I know you shouldn't really shave it off but my OCD took over after years of putting up with facial hair falling off everywhere I went, in my pillows, sink, shower etc. I shaved it all off with a plan.
Before shaving it all off I started taking ZMA pills for about two weeks. Zinc/Magnesium pills which maintain testosterone levels and can improve testosterone levels by upto 30% if you're active and working out. Once I had my testosterone levels maintained/boosted slightly I shaved it all off and my facial hair grew back thicker and quicker than before. Plenty of brands of ZMA but they all work the same. There are also vegetarian versions of these pills which are the ones I use
I also bought this beard oil from Home Bargains that is a pure mix of Coconut oil/Castor oil/Almond oil (you can make that mix yourself easily which I do now). Small bottle for £1 but it works amazingly well. Super thick and absorbs nicely. They rarely stock it these days but if you can find it get it. Now my facial hair is pretty neat and strong. Rarely facial hair falls out when washing it or combing it.
Still taking the ZMA pills on and off every couple of weeks. Still using my DIY beard oil. Still working out and living healthy. Even the thinning hair on my head has greatly improved.
Just my opinion that anything hair related for men can usually be solved with a boost of your testosterone through exercise, Zinc intake and healthy living. ZMA pills also help you sleep extremely well at night if you have trouble sleeping and a lack of sleep also can lead to stress and that means your hair is more likely to fall out. ZMA also helps your libido greatly.
I recommend ZMA to all my male relatives and friends. It really is the perfect vitamin mix for all men.
Please seek medical advice before taking any vitamin or food supplements such as ZMA since we are all different and what may be harmless to one may be harmful to others. Also please remember too much of ANYTHING is a bad thing.
Hope this helps you my brother because it definitely worked for me and a few of my relatives and friends.
