How can I grow more chest hair?

Ok guys,

I need some advice. I am 34 years old and have some chest hair but its slow growing. I have heard that shaving your chest hair will help it grow back thicker but does that actually work? Basicallylike I said I have some chest hair but I figured by now I'd have more. Is there anything I can do to grow more chest hair? What actually works, what doesn't?

Re: How can I grow more chest hair?

Shaving doesn't make hair grow thicker or faster. It "feels" thicker when it first grows back in because it is short and sticks up more. Once it is normal length it feels like it's normal texture. As for growing more hair, never heard of a method but would love thicker chest hair myself. Guess we will have to wait for hair cloning and get cloned hair implants!

I wonder if that laser comb would do anything?????

Re: How can I grow more chest hair?

Well, I've actually heard that too.
I suppose it's true, because for women, we shave our legs,
and of course, we notice when it gets thicker and nastier :P
Which, it doesn't start out that way.

I suppose it can't hurt to try the shaving and waiting method.
But, mind you, it may take a while to get your desired results.
Couldn't hurt to try, I guess!

Good luck!

Re: How can I grow more chest hair?

Sorry to take so long to reply. I actually asked my dr about it at my last visit. He says that most of it is heredity and that by my age men have most of the body hair they are going to get but he is referring me to an endocrinologist to see if there is something they can do. I will keep you posted on whaat I find out.

Yes, let us know what he says. Although some guys are just naturally smooth.

Cool Re: How can I grow more chest hair?

Hey Guys,

Don't worry about the chest hair, I think no or little chest hair is sexy. I don't like a man to not have any though. My husband has very little and I love it.

Too much makes you look like a gorilla.

God makes everyone different and there is always my nose that I hate, but God gave it to me so I am happy that he gave me a nose at all to smell with.

Have a blessed day.

Testosterone cream rubbed on the chest will increase chest hair growth. It is by doctors prescription for guys with low testosterone.

JinL-
That is interesting...where did you hear that? I wonder if testosterone cream rubbed on the chest would have a systemic effect? Then it might cause scalp hair loss and testicular problems.

That is interesting about the testosterone cream. I have an appointment with an endocrynologist on the 19th. I will have to ask him about that.

Thanks for the info.

Re: How can I grow more chest hair?

OK, went to the endocrynologist on Wednesday and he made me feel a lot better by saying that he didn't think I had any serious problems or anything and some men just don't have a lot of chest hair. I asked him about the testosterone cream and he said that there was a cream he could prescribe and I might grow some additional hair possibly but he could almost guarentee it would cause testicular shrinkage. NO THANKS!! I think I'll just keep what I have and not worry about it. Thanks for all the support and advice.

Re: How can I grow more chest hair?

Men are expected to have chest hair, by women and by men; its a sign of man-hood. It's an expectation. I don't have any and it makes me feel inferior. I WISH there was something I could do to have chest hair.
