I guess I’ll start off by saying I’m 16 and I’ve been lurking here for quite some time.
I am quite sick of having… err… let’s call it, ‘unwelcomed hair’ in places where there shouldn’t be any on a girl.
Big ew on my part.
I have a few questions/complaints/whatevs then regarding this.
First off, what could indicate that hair growth is hormonal? The fact that you notice it when starting puberty? Or just how irregular it is in length or density? What are the effects of medication/rate at which they start working… etc.
I also understand that the problem can be a result simply from your heritage. It is possible that this is the case with me.
Though my mom has little to no fine hair (ahh lucky), my father is quite the opposite, being partially middle eastern. So I end up with fair skin and dark, noticable but still fine hair in unlikely places. Lucky me to get his genes I guess.
Emotionally, I REALLY REALLY REALLY can’t stand this and I don’t think that’s very healthy for me in the long run. I always find myself looking at other people’s body hair in hopes I’m not alone. I shave [some of] it, but it grows back super fast (I shave my legs EVERY day) and we all know how unattractive that prickly feeling is, and how awkward it is trying not to let your boyfriend notice… agh. In all honesty, I would find myself actually pretty darn attractive if it weren’t for my body hair.
I was seriously considering waxing, but I’ve heard too many bad things about that and I am way to scared that the hair will grow back x345345345345. lol.
At 16 and jobless, obviously I can’t afford laser and electrolysis… and I admit that I’m too embarassed to even tell my parents about my problem so… no go.
Maybe someone could make a suggestion of a good razor or something? I don’t know. Maybe I should just get a really good tan and maybe you wont notice the hair, haha…
Well thanks for reading this far, and thanks even more if you have a suggestion.
