Now I know we grow body hair for pretty much the rest of our lives but I mean the main hair like on the chest, legs or back etc. after puberty. Some guys say it stopped growing at age 22 or so and then there is a long hairless break untill you get older, then it begins with the ears, nose etc. So I'm wondering what everybody will say so we can get an 'average' number.

I am 51 and it never quit coming in. I am getting new hair in areas I never figured hair would grow. Not just in the ears but on them? On the nose? Easy enough to pluck. I had a full beard at 17, the chest and back hair took a little longer.

I am lucky my wife loves the fur, lol.

My younger brother at 39 has patchy hair, looks like mange to me. He did get that ubber cool mono eyebrow, lol.

What's weird is while men grow hair as they age, some old men look kind of hairless as well.

I think it generally occurs at age 18-24 among most men.

but now the other places seam to grow in thicker on the neck and eyebrows and ears and less on the chest and legs areas and i get the neck and ears and eyebrows trimed up and it seam like next week iam back getting them trimed again .. ..

also i used to be able to get by by shaveing once a day now it twice a day or i have the 5.pm shadowing on my face at the end of the day ..

Yeah it does. You might continue to grow the hair all over but that is the second stage long after the main aount of body hair grows. The hair that grows later on is a slow process. What I want to know is what age most men stop growing the initial large amount like on the chest, arms, legs etc. Most say around 22 but I have doubts.

My legs were furry even at 7 years old. My chest hair kicked in on puberty around the nipples, hair connected by 18. Formed a T shape about 21, filled in to a full winter coat by 28. My head hair and beard grow at a inch and a half a month.

Years ago in dating I would go on first dates and no repeats. One woman was at least honest on a phone call later, she said "I do not do fur". All I could say was thank her for her honesty, refreshing. As many women who do not like the "fur" love it.

Hair growth depends on the level of testosterone a person has in their system.
