Does your testosterone level determine how much hair you grow on your body?

Yes & no. Testosterone is both anabolic & androgenic. Androgenic is what gives you male characteristics. Testosterone is also broken down into Dht (dihydrotestosterone) which is purely androgenic. Too much Dht can cause male pattern hair loss. But after all this, don't forget that genetics also has a major role in hair growth. Think of your family & your ethnicity when it comes to genetics.
