Default Chest Hair

Okay, So I am a huge fan of chest hair. I do have chest hair but little ones and those are not dense. My chest hair are a few and those are on a smaller area of my chest. I mean they do not cover my whole chest.
I really want to grow my chest area much denser and I want them to cover whole of my chest.
What can I do? Or rather what should I do?


Please suggest me something as I have always been very desperate to grow my chest hair.

I don't know how much you could do, I believe a lot of that stuff is hereditary. Did your father have a very hairy chest? My friend's father, when I was small, used to go swimming with us and he had a really hairy chest, hairy shoulders and back...but not much on his head. I never liked all that hair, lol, it would float on it's own in the water, and was a bit offputting.

You can supplement with Biotin daily, it supports nails and hair and also has other benefits. I don't take it every day, but I have Swanson Biotin 5mg capsules on my shelf. http://www.natmedtalk.com/wiki/Biotin

I think I remember reading something from Edgar Cayce about using castor oil topically for male baldness, don't know if that would work or not.

I can see your image in my mind, K2C...

I watched a tv show last night where the character says he conditions his arm hair so that it sways softly, like wheaten fields in the winds !!!

Hair transplant. You can't grow hair where there's no hair follicle, so the only way would be transplants. But, if you're totally obsessed over it.. go for it.

I managed to find this online:

Step 1
Measure 1 tsp. of rosemary essential oil and place in a small glass bowl. Add five drops of lemongrass essential oil. Pour in 1/2 cup of olive oil. Mix well together.


Step 2
Take a hot shower and then rub a small amount of the herbal mix onto parts of your body where you would like hair to grow faster. Jude C. Williams and Jude Todd share this remedy in their book "Jude's Herbal Home Remedies." Rosemary and lemongrass are said to stimulate hair follicles and help hair to grow faster.

Step 3
Take the recommended dosage written on the bottle of gota kola tincture daily in a little bit of warm water. Gotu kola may stimulate hair growth according to Asa Hershoff and Andrea Rotelli in their book "Herbal Remedies." They also claim that the herb also strengthens connective tissue around the follicle. Note that herbal remedies are not regulated by the FDA and thus are not proven to be safe or effective.

Step 4
Drink a cup of nettle tea daily. Hershoff and Rotelli also claim that nettles stimulate hair growth and prevent baldness. The same caution applies for nettle tea as was noted for gotu kola.


Not sure whether or not it will actually work, but it's worth giving it a try!

Any experiment is worth trying

The only thing I'd like to ask is, if there's no hair follicle in that area to begin with, how will hair growth be stimulated?

I do not think there is a way to grow more chest hair.

It must be genes, hereditary, or related to the amount of whisky you drink!

Just kidding, but seriously, there isn't any real relation to any sort of "problem" genetically, hormonally, or physically in terms of not having a lot or no chest hair...

The only thing I can really think of in terms of chest hair to try and help out it to maybe try some testosterone supplements, however, that isn't always a good idea as it can cause other issues, and really, you WANT extra chest hair, but I mean it really isn't a NEED.. Is there anything really wrong with leaving yourself the way nature designed you?

Or...change your outlook. Nowadays, men are actually waxing their chests, to be completely hairless. I personally think the amount of chest hair is not very important. IMO, it does not in any way measure the masculinity, sex appeal, or worth of a man.

That's right, but what I'm trying to convey is that there isn't anything you can take or use to create more hair follicles between the hair that's there. That's genetic. You were born with limited hair follicles on your chest.

The only way to get more is to have them implanted.

So my wish remains the same !
If that's what you like, it's all good!

A muscular chest is how I would define sexually appealing & masculine.

Yeah, many women say they actually prefer men without hair lol.

There are still those that love it of course, but seems the majority of women nowadays want you to be bald head to toe!

Of course, in some areas it is more hygienic, and makes good sense. I don't really have the problem, I got plenty of chest hair, of course I am bald on top, so maybe my hair decided to move south for the winter? of course that was years ago lol

Or that "Nair For Men" *shudder* anything that makes your hair fall out, can't be that good for you. OK, it doesn't make your hair fall out per se... But it makes it so weak you can remove it with a shaver made of rubber? wtf... That CAN'T be good for you in the long run....
