Greetings! Unfortunately how thick your beard grows in is just part of the genetics lottery. At this time it is the general consensus of medical professionals that there is nothing that can be done to increase beard density. On the positive side it is very possible that you are just a late bloomer. Talk to your father/grandfather about when their beards fully developed. It can take up to a person's late 20's for them to be able to grow a good thick beard (while others seem to be able to grow one overnight at 16, doesn't seem fair does it?). If you feel like there is something wrong with how thick your beard it might be a good idea to talk to your doctor about it. A hormonal imbalance can cause poor facial hair growth and that likely can be treated. Lastly, I did find one interesting thing worth noting. Some believe that high stress lives can cause hair loss. If you'd fall into this category try reducing your stress level (if possible) and see if that helps.

I happen to be very slim with the facial hair myself. I'm in my mid 20s as well, and have exactly 2 hairs between my barely-existent sideburns and my 68 hairs on my chin (yes they have been counted). I did as my dad about his hair history and he said his beard was always full... as was my mom's dads beard. So it's not likely a family thing. Perhaps DJBaker has the right idea with a hormonal imballance, but I'm not too concerned with the issue. Although I have a fairly stress-free life and the hair on top of my head is very full, so I know that isn't my issue. I'm actually quite happy that I don't have to shave much. I do have a mustache that will grow and the very small tuft of hair bellow the middle of my lower lip. But both of those just look really bad (along with my 68 hair beard) when I grow them out. So I shave daily the little bit of hair that I do have. It's nice to not have to shave alot of hair. I have had the same bottle of shaving cream as long as I can remember and my razors last about 4 times as long as most people's. We should take pride in your hairlessness, it definately has its perks. Of course the downside for me is in the late evening people sometimes ask me if I'm growing a mustache, because they can see my hair there but not anywhere else so they assume I shaved the rest off. It makes for a bit of explaining every time unless I just say "yes, I'm going for the bad teenage mustache look".
