To be horrified at my pubes making an advance on my knees....

grin

Steffanoid Thu 09-May-13 20:38:33

can't I just ignore any and all traces of hair down there's I have a couple that go near my belly button and I pluck those, but anything further south is ignored, apart from all over my legs to my knees and tge back of my thighs when I can reach

oh god im due to give birth within the next 5 weeks what are they going to think, I can't see down there let alone 'maintain' it!!!!

when the time comes, I think your hairiness will be the least of your worries wink

Bunnygotwhacked Thu 09-May-13 20:46:40

I don't wax and am very lax about hair removal dp doesnt mind and i can't be arsed tbh but when i see those people who are very anti hair removal I think oh sure wait till you get a long spindly fecker and his friends sprouting from your chin it will be away with the placards and out with the tweezers I bet.

Does anyone shave the hair on their toes? I'm growing them so that I can epilate! shock

I shave my toe hair. I tried plucking them once..I don't reccommend it, not only did it really fucking hurt but I got one of those wierd connecting pains under my arm of all places!

Yy to chin hairs. I check daily but they must have wierd overnight growing powers because I often find big black ones 1/4 inch long that I swear weren't there the day before!

SirRaymondClench Thu 09-May-13 21:45:38

Am 40 and now have hairs growing on chin, sidies, tash, nipples and my legs have always been ridiculously hairy. Even if I shave them they are stubbly by night.
Fucking ridiculous!

I am 45.

I noticed today that apart from the tache, which we are NOT talking about, I have chin hairs. But only on the left hand side of my chin. WTF is that all about and why did I only notice them when I was sitting in the car?

Lasering - definitely lasering. Gets rid of them all for a very long time, but do check what strength and type laser is being used. I went to a place that also offered plastic surgery, so they had a 'medical grade' one. Toes, bikini line and underarms took about eight sessions to sort. Still working on the facial stuff though - that keeps coming back sad

Bobyan I had my horrendous bikini line lasered through a sk:n clinic. (they have 30% off at the moment...) A six treatment course, hurt more each time but bearable. That was 3 years ago, a few fine hairs starting to come back through now. Had one treatment on my lower legs last year and that was unbearable. Too scared to try again, or try thighs. Possibly tache, it is expensive though.

Bobyan Thu 09-May-13 22:18:53

I'm actually worried that if I leave too long they will turn grey and I will be left looking like a sheep down below.

And you can't laser white hair!!!

bettycocker Thu 09-May-13 23:36:12

I'm another one who's always had runaway pubes.

I want to know why only one of my boobs is hairy?

AlbertoFrog Thu 09-May-13 23:42:00

Mine's grown down, round and then up all the way to the top of my bum crack. Thinking of putting a cute wee bow on it.

Oh and there's grey in there too. Sheesh!

elQuintoConyo Thu 09-May-13 23:54:11

walk a mile in my pubes, sister I'm crying over that, I may have to namechange to that. Brilliant grin

My pubes have started holding hands with my shin hairs. I saw on ElQuintoConyo'sPubes FB page that they're 'in a relationship', looks serious.

ladyjadie Thu 09-May-13 23:58:37

Ah haha quint!
The lady who is doing my IPL told me they do full 'Hollywood' shock

Oow.

Startail Fri 10-May-13 00:02:03

Mine appeared before I left primary school and have been heading down my legs since my teens, they head up my stomach and all over my arse too.

Whatalotofpiffle Fri 10-May-13 00:10:35

I have the crappy combination of both long and straight pubes!!!! Very very odd

BookieMonster Fri 10-May-13 00:22:59

Every time I shower I'm half expecting David Attenborough to turn up and start a narration on the migration of pubes to sunnier southern climes.

SomeBear Fri 10-May-13 00:24:43

I'm not usually bothered about hair removal but on the odd times I am forced to go swimming I have a go at some sort of bush control. I was horrified at just how far out it has all spread. Upwards, outwards... takes me ages with the ladyshave these days.

Chavvytastic Fri 10-May-13 00:33:46

Its horrific. I suffer hideously with pubes that go down my legs. My inner thighs and backs of legs are horrendous. To add insult to injury they have now started to turn white. The white pubes are even more wiry than normal pubes. I have been having Brazillian waxes for a few years now (and my upper legs) but think I may have to opt to go completely bald soon due to the white pube problem. They just scream - yeah you are old!!!

Also think I may have reached the end of bleaching the tache and have reached the day of hair removal there as well. Have 2 hairs that I pluck out of my chin and a few on my nipples FGS!!!!!

I am 41 and thinking I may emigrate to some mountain range in 10 years time and become a Yeti because I doubt I will be able to keep up with the hair removal costs if I continue to grow hair at this rate. Perhaps I could harvest pubes for Merkin makers????

There was a thread on here a while back and some more mature ladies were saying they had reached the point where it had all fallen out. I am hoping that happens to me soon.

LittleMissLucy Fri 10-May-13 01:11:01

Like Madbuslady mine have always been a bit south of the bikini line, since I got them blush. A few waxings has thinned them out and now I just shave what's left, off with a razor if I'm going swimming. No bother.

AThingInYourLife Fri 10-May-13 01:21:37

Walk a mile in my pubes, sister.

Another one weeping with laughter at this. grin

I love this thread. smile

Lasering is something I've always dreamed of.

But never taken any steps towards organising.

theodorakisses Fri 10-May-13 04:29:48

Had total laser took about 6 months of monthly. I bought lignocaine 10% spray from the pharmacy, the Elma cream didn't touch it. That was 2years ago and no regrowth worth every penny

LittleMissLucy Fri 10-May-13 04:40:44

Do you have any scaring and did it hurt?
