I have been shaving my facial hair since I was in high school out of sheer embarrassment of course. I tried the bleaching thing and it was just too thick. You know those emotional teenage years for us girls… Well it’s a habit I began and seriously regret after 13 years. The facial hair is now very dark (pretty much black- but all my body hair has always been, even though my head of hair is rather light, thanks to genetics!) and terribly coarse. I tried growing it out so I could wax it, but the waiting was just too painful to go through. I let it grow for several days, and even if I bleached it, it was so obviously there. It’s really mortifying.
It’s fine as a very temporary solution…but I end up having a shadow at least 8 hours later. It’s really awful. I’m thinking of trying Vaniqa and staying with my shaving method. I honestly can not imagine dealing with the embarrassment of making my hair grow long enough for waxing or electrolysis.
If only I’d have listen to my mom and sisters when they told me not to do it. It is my most embarrassing habit and one I never admit to anyone…although I’m sure people notice when the shadow comes in.
Anyone else a slave to this habit? Or does anyone have any advice? Thank you.
