To think there is nothing more satisfying in the whole world than pulling out a chin pube?

It's been bothering me for days after being plucked last week!

Started of as a little dark grain of sand that the tweezers would not grip but tonight I got the little bugger grin

That's my excitement over for another week - ten days!

I have one on my cheek that is a bugger, just tried tonight and the tweezers gripped.... then snapped it off, not out so YABU as i cannot share your euphoria sad grin

When it's just the one, yeah. But when you're a hairy Mary gorilla like me (thank you DM and DGM!) it's not so much fun!
You've got to be on top of them all the time or one day people will think an ape has escaped the zoo sad

I've got one I've been cultivating. I can 'brush' it now and will pluck it later. I'm a swimmer and fear it will be creating unnecessary 'drag' in the water grin

Ingrown hairs are even more fun!!! Love it when I get one of those out!

I was just going to say about ingrown hairs! They are satisfying jn that you get a spot to squeeze and a hair to pull out. Often find myself mesmerised by the length of then!

I've never had a ingrown one! sad

I'm so glad I can discuss my plucking porn here as dh looks like he may leave me when I bring it up grin

And why do they grow so quick? One day there's nothing...........then next day they're 2cm long and black shock

I currently have one of the feckers that has ingrown and I cannot seem to dig it out. I can feel it, if that makes sense, and I saw the bugger, but since I tried to pluck it a couple of days ago, it seems to have burrowed deeper.

I am currently sporting the giveaway under-chin-scab. angry

However....in a couple of days, it will have to surface. And then, then I will have my moment of victory.

I'm with Star. How on earth do they grow so bloody quick. I have one. It can grow so quick that in the morning nothing, by the evening almost pluckable. How can this be??

All if these hair/sporn-related activities are deeply satisfying, but I find them even more so when I am "helping" DH by attacking his pores and follicles, rather than my own. Less pain grin

YANBU. I have two of them. They are magic witches' hairs. The witches put them in while you are asleep. It's why they suddenly appear.

If you want to spoil your fun completely, Philips Lumea is wonderful at exterminating them - possibly permanently.

Norm, you must be my twin.....
And then they spring from the skin (usually at a time when tweezers are unavailable).
The question is, should you yank them out quick, or really slooooowly?

Bluemonkeyspots Thu 06-Mar-14 19:18:12

Que- that might be a option for the few I get growing on my big toe! They are ugly little things

I have one too, that seems to be pluckable once a week.

Oddly have one on my boob too, just outside the areola.I dont like that one.

a verruca coming out - plug and all - was one of the most satisfying experiences of my life.

I don't know much about hair growth and follicles and the likes, but if you're constantly yanking them out and the root clearly comes with it, will they eventually give up and die or will it just be a stubborn bugger and keep going in case you miss it for a while and it ends up 3 inches long?!

HaHaHa - ladies it is so good to know there are others out there! I don't see any other mums on the school run fiddling with their chin in a paranoid manner, and sure the world can see their chinny chin chin hairs growing at a rate of knots like pinochio's nose right in front of their eyes!

scarffiend Thu 06-Mar-14 19:27:47

I have two wiry ones that grow right under my chin and yes - they are non existent then 3ft long in the space of give minutes! I've started carrying tweezers with me because if I find it in the morning I can't rest all day until it's gone. Very odd looking for a woman to sit obsessively stroking her chin.

I think it comes to us all eventually.

Mrsfluff Thu 06-Mar-14 19:41:40

I'm thinking of keeping tweezers in the car; the light is good and they always seem to break the surface when I'm out and about!

You say eventually, Caitlin, but I'm only 24! Hopefully it won't get any worse or by the time I'm a grandparent I'll look like cousin it confused

The white one are the worst! Really tough to get out. Bad enough having g chin whiskers, but white ones?????
