Debunking Facial Hair Myths (Tips for FTM Transgender Guys)

Facial hair and manliness go hand in hand. It is therefore important for FTM transgender guys to know the nuts and bolts dealing with facial hair and shaving if they want to embrace masculinity. If you are an FTM transgender guy who has started hormone replacement therapy, you might be wondering if you will be able to grow facial hair. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee you would be able to grow it, even if you have started hormone replacement therapy, because facial hair growth is largely based on genetics. If your genetics do not favor facial hair, then you might not be able to grow a beard.

There are some indications that might give you a better picture of whether or not you would be lucky enough to grow a beard. For example, if your dad or uncles have a beard, then your chances of growing one during/after your hormone replacement therapy is higher.

Can Facial Hair Products Help You Grow a Beard?

Debunking Facial Hair Myths Tips for FTM Transgender Guys-02Many FTM transgenders would do anything to grow a beard. Unfortunately, many of them are convinced that products like Minoxidil can play a significant role in helping them grow one. However, the truth is that no product can help you grow a beard. As mentioned earlier, genetics is the primary factor that determines hair growth. Therefore, do not invest your money in costly products that blatantly promise to grow a beard overnight. All you need to grow a beard is the right genetics, hormone replacement therapy, and some patience.

Does Shaving Promote Beard Growth?

Debunking Facial Hair Myths Tips for FTM Transgender Guys-03There are several myths that surround facial hair growth. Unfortunately, both cis men and transgender guys swallow some of these myths hook, line, and sinker. One of these myths is that shaving promotes beard growth. The truth of the matter is that it does not, and there has not been a single piece of research that has shown this. Shaving will neither help you grow facial hair nor help your facial hair become thicker.

Does Taking More Testosterone Boost Facial Hair Growth?

Debunking Facial Hair Myths Tips for FTM Transgender Guys-04Some myths that surround facial hair growth are dangerous and can adversely affect the body. A good example of such a myth is that taking more testosterone can help boost your chances of growing facial hair. While testosterone will make you experience a second puberty, making you grow facial hair, it cannot help you grow facial hair if your genetics do not favor it. Therefore, never make the mistake of taking more testosterone in order to boost facial hair growth. Only take the prescribed amount, as taking more than that might have harmful effects on your body.

    Thanks for writing on this subject! I’m also a big debunker of theories. One of the critical factors for changing people’s minds with science is to be able to explain how my theory works. To that end, what is your source for the claim that minoxidil does not promote beard growth?

    constantly i used to read smaller posts which also clear their motive, and that is also happening with this paragraph which I am reading at this place.
