Increase Your Metabolism Step 5

Step 1. Get your testosterone levels up

Ask your doctor about your testosterone levels. Testosterone and hair loss are related in a peculiar way. If you don't have enough testosterone, your chest hair won't grow. If you have too much testosterone, it is converted into DHT (dihydrotestosterone), which shrinks the hair follicles. Try to have a healthy testosterone balance. Since there are no over-the-counter testosterone tests, you will need to seek advice from your doctor.

  • Start exercising/exercising. Men's testosterone levels can be increased by both weight loss and weight lifting. Go to the gym, lie on the bench and train hard. You will feel a lot stronger and gain chest hair at the same time.
  • Take testosterone supplements if your doctor diagnoses you with low testosterone. Only take supplements if your doctor advises you to. Again, if you start taking supplements while you have normal testosterone levels, an enzyme will convert the excess testosterone into a hair follicle-shrinking hormone. And that is not exactly desirable for hair growth.
  • Ask your doctor about estrogen inhibitors. Your doctor should be able to tell you whether the use of estrogen (aromatase inhibitors) inhibitors is advisable in your particular case for chest hair growth.

Step 2. Never use steroids to promote chest hair growth

There are serious health risks associated with the use of anabolic steroids. Since there are dozens (if not hundreds) of different types of anabolic and androgenic steroids, all with different side effects on the body and effects on the hair, it is not safe to use steroids for hair growth.

Remove Chest Hair Step 2

Step 1. Shave your chest

If you already have some chest hair, shaving will make it thicker; it won't help hair grow where it isn't. (This is one of the reasons girls wax instead of shave.) Shaving cuts the hair at the root, where it's thickest; then when it grows back, the entire length of the hair will be thicker.

Shave your chest every two to four weeks

Step 2. Apply Daktarin cream (miconazole nitrate)

In the morning after showering, massage the breast with Daktarin. This method is said to promote the growth of new hair - however this method has not been scientifically confirmed.

  • Please note:

    miconazole nitrate kills fungi, and is used to fight foot and vaginal infections. Use it in moderation and be careful.

Grow Onions Step 1

Step 3. Cut an onion in half and rub it over your chest

Rub the onion over your chest in circular motions. When the surface of the onion has dried, you can cut off about 5mm and move on; this can stimulate hair growth as onions contain sulfur - sulfur is a mineral that has been proven to promote hair growth.

It is probably wise not to use this method during the day, as onions smell strongly. So let the onions do their job in the evening, and take a shower the next morning

Find Things to Talk About Step 25

Step 4. Get chest hair advice from a male relative

It can be a little embarrassing, but you can always ask someone you know and trust about their experience of growing chest hair.

  • If the male relative asks you why, you have two options:

    • Tell the truth. Make it clear that you want to grow your chest hair, and that you are wondering if he might have any secrets or tips. Maybe you have nothing to worry about.
    • Just say you're wondering and you want to talk about something random.

Step 5. Be patient

Step 6. Know the hair growth myths

There are some well-intentioned myths about how to grow your hair and what it takes to grow a mane mane. Many of these fables have been relegated to the realm of (yes) fables by science and are demonstrably false.

  • Increasing blood flow promotes hair growth not. You may have been told to scrub a toothbrush along your chest to increase blood flow to the area, which is supposed to promote hair growth. That has not been scientifically proven. Scrubbing your chest with a toothbrush will not cause chest hair.
  • Purifying the pores will make you not help chest hair grow. Some people say that clogged pores can cause hair to get trapped below the skin's surface, so clearing those pores can promote hair growth. That's just not true. While scrubbing away dead skin cells and clearing pores is good, it will not promote chest hair growth.
