    Depends mainly on your heredity. I have patchy facial hair, yet I don't have trouble with making gains in either size or strength.

    It's genetics, personally I'm predominantly Native American, so i don't have alot of facial hair, although the 12 weeks of test i just finished helped alot with that. Unfortunatly it also helped my "treasure trail" grow into a treasure forest, and its a pain(literally) to shave the stuff. Oh well.

    there is no link with low test levels and facial hair. It is like saying that if you have high test levels you HAVE to be bald.

    Before doing 2 cycles of TEST 4 years ago (27), I could not grow a full beard because it would come in patchy. But now, I can grow a beard with the best of them! My father could not grow that much facial hair (Irish), but I can. I truely think that the TEST had something to do with it.

    You probably don't have much 5a-reductase enzymes in your skin, hence the lack of hair.

    this may be a dumb question... ok, would diesel test hardcore and/ or stoked have a benefiting factor on facial hair growth and testosterone levels... Would they only be temporary if you did gains test. levels. . . and what about squats. squats release alot of growth hormone appearantly. (my thighs werent hairy but when i started squating my thighs... got hairy)

    I have found that as I have aged (now 36) that my beard is thicker and more complete. Whether that has anything to do with PH use, I don't know for sure but I think it helped a little. Also, when I supplement with either DHEA or Relora, my body hair grows in thicker and darker.

    But genetically, I come from gorilla stock.
