What causes the lack of facial hair in men?

Hello, I am 20, just under 6 feet tall and roughly 170lbs. I have been trying to participate in No-shave-november but as usual my facial hair does not want to grow for me. Will facial hair eventually grow faster or do I need to get used to a life without a beard? Does this have to do with genetics? If so, which relative should I look at to see what my facial hair will eventually come out looking like? (I've heard if you want to know if you'll be bald you should look at your monther's father).

Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

I went through your details. I suggest you not to worry much. you are right. Facial / body hair growth is a genetic issue. No treatment can alter that issue. please do not fall into the hands of some cheating people and loose your money. There are lot of positive points for this condition. Be satisfied.

Psychotherapy techniques should suit your requirement. If you require more of my help in this aspect, Please post a direct question to me in this URL. Make sure that you include every minute details possible. I shall prescribe the needed psychotherapy techniques.

Hope this answers your query. Available for further clarifications.
Good luck.
