I’m a 24 year old guy and have had a problem, so to speak, with body hair since I was 16 or so. It started with my legs, then my chest, and finally started coming in thicker on my forearms and even hands. And within the last four years came the straw that broke the camel’s back. Its coming in thicker and thicker on my SHOULDERS. Thats too much.
I’ve ALWAYS hated the hair on my chest particularly, but I could deal with it somewhat. When I noticed it on my shoulders it really started bugging me, but I just shaved it and it was pretty much ok. Now its getting so thick that its becoming harder to shave and make it look natural. My left shoulder is much worse then my right, for some reason, although it now seems that its spreading from left to right across the back of my neck.
Its to the point now that I shave my face, then shave my shoulders, then the back of my neck every other day. Now I’m getting fierce looking razor bumps on my shoulders. I hate always turning down back massages from my girlfriend just because I’m so paranoid about this. Not to mention I haven’t gone shirtless in AGES because I’m so embarassed about my chest. I work out every other day and am very proud of my body otherwise, but I feel that it is all for nothing if the first thing people notice is hair.
I’ve got an Appointment for Advanced Laser Clinics for the 18th of this month to get my chest and abs done. Unfortunately I know I’m going to have to reschedule because its just so expensive. I also hate that I can’t get my shoulders done at the same time, but I just don’t have that kind of cash. If I could just get my shoulders and chest cleared I would be 100% more confident. This hair is the ONLY thing I’m self conscious about. Its seriously to the point that I think about it constantly from the time I get up to the time I go to bed, every single day.
If I could even just find a way to lighten it, or something that would make it grow back SLIGHTLY slower after I shave, I’d be a little happier. I don’t know. It just feels good to be able to type it all out. Thanks again for the website Andrea… its a huge help.
