Over the last several months I’ve done a rather insane amount of research on facial hair (I tend to obsess). This thread will be an attempt to put much of that research into simplified discreet segments. Please understand that simplification will often lend an incorrect scientific explanation, but the end result should allow at least an understanding of the process on a basic level. I will likely not be adding much of a bibliography, since my sources are varied, my link list vast, and much of the information came from actual factual books in college libraries or from online scientific publications that require payment to view. That said, if you want to know more, I’ll do my best to accommodate. Also… I am not publishing a white sheet in a journal, but attempting to make some rather deceptively complex issues approachable and easily understood. If I fail in this, feel free to ask questions here, send me a PM, or otherwise make it known.
