May not be low T: There are a number of causes for lack of facial hair growth and low t is only one. Genetics play a big role as can some medical illnesses. Some men just never seem to grow facial hair and a particular causes is never found. I remember being in china and having little kids pulling the hair on my arms because they had never seen arm hair before. They laughed and squealed. It was fun.
