Does your testosterone level relate to how much hair you grow?

In brief: Indirect relation

We know that giving someone excess testosterone can increase body & facial hair. If we give just enough testosterone to someone w/hypogonadism (low t), it shouldn't affect hair growth much, unless that testosterone is converted into dihydrotestosterone, which can cause male pattern baldness.
Don't forget that genetics & ethnicity play a role in hair growth, too.
