I just discovered these forums and spent some time reading, and will continue to do so. I can’t believe how much info is here, and how many other females have the same problem I do!
I’ve always had facial hair and on my neck and it’s light blonde. For some reason I decided in college to shave my neck. Why I didn’t think to use a depliatory I don’t know! So my only problem is with my neck, and it’s really just the area under my jaw line and then down the middle. I shave it every morning, then I use one of those facial hair mitts but by mid morning the stubble is there. I would love to pull my hair back or put it up in a pony tail but I keep it close to my head. I hate going to the doctor, the hairdresser, etc… I’m nervous for when my baby gets old enough to touch my face and wonders why her mom has stubble like her dad! I dread the summer time when we’re outside all the time, at the beach, on the boat, etc…because people sit right next to me and I know they can see this stubble. It’s starting to affect my desire to do anything because I think about it all the time.
I think my only choices are electrolysis or laser. How do I decide which is the way to go? How long does the hair have to be in order to do either of these things? Will I have to continue to shave? Also, I am fair skinned and have blonde facial hair, but the hair on my neck is darker because it’s stubbly.
Also I’m just curious - why does the hair on my neck grow back darker and faster than the hair that I shave on my legs? I’ve tried to grow the neck hair out in order to have it waxed but it grew in so thick I couldn’t bear it. On my legs a few days after shaving it is softer.
Thanks to anyone who has read this and who can offer some advice. I’m really glad to find a place where others are concerned about whether or not they have to spend time in the hospital!
Oh one more question - does plucking the hair remove it all together or will it grow back?
