User avatar Hello,Beard area and mustache are androgenic areas under the control of male sexual hormones.If your sexual hairs at the pubic and axilla are normal it indicates that the hormones are normal.As to whether the hairs would grow thick or not would be under the genetic control apart from racial features.There are no methods to increase hair growth in these areas as far as I know, since even increasing hormone levels do not influence growth in normal individuals.It is best to accept and concentrate in outdoor activities and good aerobic workouts which would put the body on topgear rather than experimenting with products of unknown value.Best wishes.
