Ok. I’ll geek out here for a minute. Facial hair growth strictly relates to your genetics and androgen levels. If you don’t know already, the hair on your face is androgenic hair. Therefore, your facial hair grows in response to your body's male hormones, including dihydrotestosterone and testosterone. Depending on the levels of both hormones, facial hair can grow slowly or quickly.
