Don't worry about chest hair, it develops a little later in most individuals. But does have a genetic bearing. If your father does not have or has sparse chest hair, so may be the case with you. Minoxidil will help hair growth in places where hair roots or follicles exist. Minoxidil cannot induce hair in non hairy areas.
