Some thoughts...: Billions of men and boys shave every day to get rid of any beard that might be starting. That means not having a beard is a great time-saver, and that beards are unnecessary for humans. The medical question is whether or not a guy has other male characteristics (which would be evidence that his hormone levels are normal)... and a visit to one's primary care doctor can address those issues. ...Read more

Best wishes. ...Read more

According to them: "the exact mechanism of action of rogaine (minoxidil) is uncertain. However, researchers believe that rogaine (minoxidil) works in part by partially enlarging the hair follicles and reversing the miniaturization process. By enlarging miniaturized follicles, the growth phase of the hair cycle is prolonged, allowing the hair to become longer and thicker looking and with more follicles in the growth phase at the same time.". ...Read more
