I know that DHT causes both hair loss and facial hair growth. I’m 17 with no facial hair–does that possibly indicate that I will experience lesser hair loss?
Your lack of facial hair doesn’t have anything to do with future scalp hair loss. Your facial hair will probably just grow in later than your peers. Wait it out (up to 5 years or so). I would expect that you still might also grow chest hair. I wish I went back in time when I had no body or beard hair. Consider yourself lucky.
