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

I remember the first time I got my eyebrows threaded, the girl asked if I wanted my top lip done. I was so horrified at the thought of this obviously visible tache I said yes. It was only later I realised that I had fallen straight into their big fat hairy trap.... blush

I have raging PCOS, laser worked for me 100%

Oh - best thread. I'm not alone.

Always hairy - partly genes (asian mum - most asian and middle eastern ladies I know are hairy).

So lovely thick black hair on a lighter skin. Add raging pcos to that. I have to remember to bleach my upper lip - but only for 5 mins or the hair is lighter than my skin. I did it the other week. Put on bleach - was on phone - 10 mins later I have a platinum white blond tash.

Legs a nightmare. No way I could shave. My eplitator dies after one summer because of the stress put on it. No facial hair other than the tash. I don't do forearms because never have and but I have to do hands and toes. Hate it. I love winter and I live in jeans.

I'd heard of a product called a no-no - tried to order it but never arrived. I have many middle eastern origin friends and they spend a fortune on hair removal but I don't have that cash. They've all bought this home laser kit. I'm a bit meh about it.

Spring and summer is difficult. I have to guess when the weather will be good for at least three consecutive weeks. Then I wax and try to catch the hairs as they grow back (the next day) all the way through summer and that's a pain. We're talking 20 mins per day on epilator just trying to catch any regrowth.

My head hair is now about 10% grey (showable because I have v. dark hair) but nothing anywhere else. No other facial hair but one tash hair will never take the bleach.

I'm hoping that menopause will sort things out in that department.

giveit, I feel your pain on hair regrowth. My legs last maybe 5 days after waxing/epilating. 2 after Veeting or shaving. I have incredibly pale skin which shows the dark stubble (and aforementioned thread veins) off a treat hmm . Not to mention the cellulite! It's annoying because the actual shape of my legs is pretty good - slim (no matter how tubby I get - classic apple shape), slender ankles etc. It's what you might call the surface finish that's shite on a stick. Leggings and opaques, that's my solution.

quizz I had PCOS too and only on my chin do I get some regrowth, and then not loads. I just have a top up treatment about once a year. God knows how much there would be if I hadn't had it lasered. The other areas have got hardly any regrowth.

I love this thread, was directed to it from one I started about hairy nips.

I also have pubes that extend half way to my knees. I tried to explain this to a blonde friend who was going on about how oppressive bikini waxing is. She went from feminist to disgusted pretty quick. walk a mile in my pubes indeed!

I love this thread too! I have Italian background so, although I'm blonde, I'm hairy!

Recently gave birth, but got a bit carried away with the veet the week before (whilst trying to tame the beast downstairs before others had to behold it) so ended up almost completely bald, but with a weird tufty fringe over my fanjo. Not a good look!

Years ago, when DH and I first got together, he pointed out that I had a tache. I'd never really noticed it before and was mortified. I removed it the next day, only for him to say, when he saw me, "Sorry, I didn't recognise you without your moustache."

Cheeky bastard!
