Facial hair can be a very good thing. If you don’t believe it, check out the recent rag magazines or the red carpets of any awards show. Beards are all the rage in men’s fashion today. However, some men find themselves forcibly outside the trend and some women are looking for a more feminine appeal. Let’s face it; facial hair can be a big mystery, appearing when we don’t want it and failing to be there when we do.
Men on Trend: Why Can’t I Grow a Full Beard? All over the covers of the most popular fashion magazines, in news interviews, and on the big screen men are donning the most impressive mops of hair about their chins, cheeks, and upper lips. Unfortunately, though, not all men have the luxury of deciding whether or not they want to follow this trend. There are millions of men in this country that are not able to grow a full beard. In fact, some grown men cannot even grow a small mustache. So, why are some men able to adorn their face with lush locks, while others struggle to get a little scruff? In truth, the source of these differences is not entirely understood, but scientists do recognize that most of the time it simply comes down to genetics. Some have the genes that make them sprout the first tuffs of facial hair at the onset of puberty, while others rarely if ever have to shave.
It should be noted, though, that in some cases a patchy beard is not purely a matter of genetics. There are conditions that can impact hair growth and result in small (or somewhat large) empty patches in an otherwise full beard or result in very little hair growth at all. Low testosterone levels, for instance, can be to blame and there are hormone injections that can be given to correct that balance. This is a treatment that many men look into as low testosterone can also result in a decreased sex drive, mood changes, and chronic fatigue.
Unfortunately, for those without a condition known as alopecia areata and who have acceptable testosterone levels, there is little that can be done to change the amount of facial hair that can be grown.
Circus Act: Why Am I Becoming the Bearded Woman? While some men are worried about growing more facial hair, many women would like to do away with theirs. Unfortunately, hormones and heredity are, once again, to blame for the excess of body hair in females. When there are high levels of androgens – male hormones – in a woman, there are a number of symptoms that can result. Among them is the growth of facial hair. This is far more common in women of Mediterranean, Middle Easters, or South Asian backgrounds. Excess hair can also grow at the same time in life when a women suddenly finds the need for more information on the hCG diet.
