To be outraged at discovering a long chin hair?

Growing under my jawline?
What? When did this happen and who put it there?!
I have religiously checked my face and chin since entering menopause and discovered other random hairs but how did this one evade me until it reached at least an inch long?
Disgraceful ... and I blame the government.

I'm 40 and I started getting a few bristles in one patch underneath my chin about two years ago. It's revolting isn't it. I pluck them out using tweezers with a light attached that I got from Amazon to make it easier to see them.

Neck hairs are worse. How do they get so long?

WoofToYouTooLady Sun 11-Sep-11 00:57:12

pffffffffft you wait til you find white eyebrow hairs. And not only are they white, they are sharp as needles shock

Salmotrutta Sun 11-Sep-11 01:01:25

Oh great - white eyebrow hairs! I can't wait <wails>

And neck hairs? <faints>

Mind you - I'm fair at least and no obvious grey hair (yet!!) so maybe the white eyebrow look will take a bit longer <hopeful>

... and I have a sore hip every morning until I "warm up".

White eyebrow hairs? Pffft? I raise you (and I can hardly bear to type this) white PUBES sad

Salmotrutta Sun 11-Sep-11 01:08:53

Oh, I see your white pubes and raise you this:
my hair in that region has thinned out and almost disappeared.

Ta Da!

we start growing hair where we don't want it and losing it where we do....

Salmotrutta Sun 11-Sep-11 01:16:55

So true, so true kerry ... and who told us?
Eh?
No-one, that's who!!

Yes WTYTL,and if you rub your eye and don't check the mirror,you can actually guarantee that the little bastard rogue one will be sticking up at a 90 degree angle to the rest of your eyebrow...shining it's silvery shimmer to all who look at you hmm

crazynanna Sun 11-Sep-11 01:23:47

My minge always looks like it has had a powdering of talc sad

darksideofthemooncup Sun 11-Sep-11 01:27:45

Salmo I LIVE for the day that happens. I have chin hair, neck hair, weird alien white hairs that grow OVERNIGHT out of my cheek and, to ring the changes, my SHOULDER. And I appear to be cultivating pubey looking hairs on the inside of my thighs that seem to be creeping ever closer to my knees. The hair on my head, however gets thinner by the day.
How is this fair? <shakes fist at sky>

Mspontipine Sun 11-Sep-11 01:34:24

Oh don't!!! I was sat tonight picking at what I thought was a tiny scab on my chin. Later realised it was my horrible recurring black chin bristle sad

WhuckFistle Sun 11-Sep-11 01:36:37

Those chin hairs can't possibly grow normally. When they appear, they are usually a good length already. I reckon they're implanted during the night by the turbo hair fairy. Mine are also dark and coarse, despite me being fair... All the better for people to be able to spot them at 40 paces.
Yup, pubes starting to get a sprinkling of salt and pepper and I noticed a white eyebrow hair the other day.

Number of grey hairs on head (which I wouldn't mind at all) = NONE!

I went to the doctor in a panic due to a mysterious lump on the edge of my nipple.
It was an ingrown hair.
What a DELIGHTFUL picture I have painted of myself grin

Mspontipine Sun 11-Sep-11 01:40:41

I had an unusually long hair on my arm a while ago. What's that all about? Kept catching sight of it thinking it was a stray then realising was attached. Did actually get very attached to it - was going through a rather stressful time. Would sit stroking it!!! Now it's just disappeared. No more have arrived. I miss that hair ..... sad

WoofToYouTooLady Sun 11-Sep-11 01:44:59

gawd we sound dead attractive, non?

LunaticIsOnTheGrass Sun 11-Sep-11 01:48:07

I'm constantly plucking stray hairs sad

My Mum was rather hirstute & I seem to be going the same way.

I'm grateful that I'm quite fair so that it doesn't show as much Mum's did, definitely getting hairier with age though.

Love the user name by the way darksideofthemooncup grin

darksideofthemooncup Sun 11-Sep-11 01:56:06

why thank you lunaticIsOntheGrass <tries to do Pink Floyd gangsign, is distracted by random weird hair>
I can remember being MORTIFIED by my Mum on the beach, to be fair it was the seventies, when hirsuteness was the norm but I wanted to DIE when she put her cossie on seemingly oblivious to the nest of spiders legs that had set up home in her crotch.

Joby1970 Tue 13-Sep-11 13:12:42

My mum & sister told me about the under chin hairs acouple of weeks ago - I am now living in fear of them! I am 41.
I've never had much in the way of hair (down there!) so will look bald if that goes!

LyingWitchInTheWardrobe Tue 13-Sep-11 13:23:04

I've noticed one on the side of my nose that seems to grow at top speed. It's completely white and very thin and I pull it out when it catches my eye. It must be an inch or longer and seems to sprout overnight... very odd! confused

<settles down with the rest of the strange, hairy people...>

Long black hairy nipple on one breast, waiting for them to turn white with resignation sad

A1980 Tue 13-Sep-11 13:46:07

I've had jet black chin hair since I was 16. Lots of it. But then I have PCOS.

At least you haven't dealt with it all your life.

I get a neck hair when I'm due on, always in the same place. I check for it regularly, but when I go to bed it's not there, I wake up 6/7 hours later and the bastard is there and a good inch long!!

HairyGrotter Tue 13-Sep-11 15:06:00

I get a spout of black hair under my chin when I'm due on, I'm 30...this has been happening since mid 20's (woe). I also get the weird 'supernatural' long hair that sprouts miraculously over night angry.

I also have the same fucking nipple hair that sprouts 2 days before my period, at least it's consistent. Plus, I have grey hair on my temple (I call myself rogue) that has been there since I was 20!!!
