    Less Beard & Moustaches

    December 30, 2016

    Every man has some soft light coloured hair on his face and in beard and moustache area. These soft and light coloured hairs are called vellus hair. When you reach puberty the hormonal level increases in your body.  The hormones that are increased in your body include:

    • Testosterone
    • Adrenal hormone
    • 17-OH progesterone
    • DHEAS
    • Growth hormone
    • LH
    • FSH
    • DHT

    There will be a decrease in the SHBG hormone in your body. Increase in hormonal levels acts on various sensors called receptors in the hair roots of your face and other parts of your body. There will be an interaction between the hormones and the receptors. After the interaction, certain changes occur in the hair root cell functioning results in increased thickness of your hair.

    The hair becomes thick, long and more black pigments are produced that makes your hair darker. These hormonal changes also increase the blood supply in your hair roots leading to more availability of growth factors. Thus, your hair grows faster, darker and stronger.

    Hormonal growth factors are present in high concentration in your body during the development of secondary genital characters.  There will be persistent stimulation of hair growth for the next 2-3 years till the genital development is complete.
