Puberty brings about a lot of changes in your body. Your body hair grows, physical change even there is a change in voice and behaviour. But then, some people tend to notice that these changes occur very early in their teenage. Similarly, some people find that some of the puberty symptoms do not occur until the late 20’s – for instance some men can not see their chest hair growth despite the age. So you must be one of those people with questions like why do some guys have no chest hair? or why I can’t grow chest hair?
There can be a variety of reasons for these changes to occur late and in some cases not occurring at all. In this blog, we’ll focus on a few reasons why some men find it hard to grow hair on their chest.
Genetics, Hormones, Deficiency, nutrition, etc. All play a part in your growth and how puberty affects you all depends on these factors.
Chest Hair Growth | Causes
Although your nutrition and deficiency can be a reason why you are unable to grow some chest hair. It is not the only reason, there are various factors and consequence that bring about lack of hair growth.
We need to know what causes this hair to grow on our body. Since childhood, there is vellus hair on the chest. However, the main reason why we start to grow hair on the chest as we grow up is the effect of rising levels of androgens (primarily testosterone and its derivatives) due to puberty.
Let’s look in detail the reasons why you some men can’t grow chest hair:
Ardogens are special hormones, they affect your hair growth. In fact, they are mainly responsible to increase your hair growth and make them thicker. There are two subtypes of Ardogens, testosterone (the male hormone) and estrogen (the female hormone) they both are closely related.
Your parents or ancestors as a whole do not only affect your personality and behaviour, but they also play an important role in deriving your physical characteristics. Families tend to have different levels of ardogens. A person who has a low level of ardogens, or simply can not grow enough chest hair is likely to pass on a similar trait to his children as well. Similarly, for a person who has a lot of chest hair will pass on the same characteristics to his children.
Chest hair grows naturally! The surroundings you live in also have an effect on how you look like. You would have seen how different people from different countries have a difference in skin colour. In the same way, the temperature and climate of a particular geographical area have an effect on your hair growth. This phenomenon is natural and you have little effect on it.
4. Nutritional Deficiency
Lack of protein or keratin in your body can also play a part in your growth, as both of them combined- form hair follicles. Follicles are responsible to grow your hair by packing old cells together. Keeping a balanced and healthy diet, with a more protein intake can help overcome this deficiency.
However, it is best to consult a doctor and get your nutritionist on board to help make a diet plan for you.
5. Medical Problems
Another, obvious reason for lack of hair growth can be any deficiency that does not lets your body grow hair on your chests. For this purpose, you can go visit a dermatologist so that he or she can conduct a detail inspection and diagnose a problem that is responsible for the lack of chest hair.
There are mixed opinions on whether or not a man wants his chest to be hairy, however, whatever your opinion is – it is always alarming to notice that your body is deprived of natural phenomena. But we can assure you it’s nothing that would be fatal to your health or be a hindrance in your daily life.
