Body hair

Why, oh why must we as women have facial hair? Don't we go through enough as women by giving birth? It is such a nuisance, and trust me ladies, all of us have it in some way. We don't like to talk about it, but it is there. I feel that it is my duty as a hairdresser to bring it up and/or recommend options to remove it. I think there is one reason that women don't do anything about it and that is fear - the fear of the lie you have been told: 'If I try to remove it, it will come back thicker and/or darker.' It is a lie, I promise.

Removing body hair does not make it grow more, faster or come in darker. The reason that it may seem it does is because the facial or body hair has been there and it has become 'damaged' if you will. It makes it appear softer and finer (just like damaged ends of your hair). Once you remove it, it comes back in as brand new hair, the edges of it are more blunt and it may feel rougher or thicker. This is especially true if your method of removal is shaving. A better options for removal is waxing. When you wax the hair, you are removing the entire shaft of hair down to the roots. The more you wax the same area consistently, the less the hair will grow back because of the damage caused to the roots. Think of your eyebrows and those of you who can't get them to grow back because you over-tweezed them. The reason is because you removed the hair by the roots and damaged it, causing it to stop growing.
