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 25. Since being pregnant with DD2 I seem to sprout black hairs on my chin/jawline <sobs> DH loves plucking them and showing them to me! Makes me want to weep! Currently pregnant with DC3, which we've been told is a boy. I seem to be sprouting black hairs in more places as time goes on sad

Ladies, can I thank you all for making my day a little less disastrous. I have read ALL the posts and have had a good and well deserved chuckle. Finally I now know that I too am not alone any more in the great "hair-debate". I have very fair skin ( don't tan at all!!) and dark brown hair and noticeable hair has been the bane of my life-add to the fact that the little buggers grow back at an incredible rate. It is bad enough having leg hair that just won't quit growing-I have threatened to stop waxing etc. and instead grab the knitting needles and "knit" myself a pair of tights from my own leg hair-whilst still on my legs!! [ my hubby says that's why our cat is so attached to me...he reckons she thinks I am her "upright" furry mother!!]...and now menopause kicked in 2 years ago at 47 [ now post menopausal at 49]....and the chin has gone from the "odd" stiff one to a battle ground where I wage war every day....and you should see my tweezer collection-one in every room and one for each handbag owned!!!!! Just answer me this though....why the pimple effect before the little buggers break the surface???? I look like I have "acne" but it's not... every time a hair is about to sprout it is proceeded by a lump, then white-head then...(if I can resist NOT plucking/squeezing/grabbing a shovel to dig it out) becomes red and "bruise-like feeling" and only then breaks cover.....and the rest of the neck is following suit. I have even found one growing straight out of the cheek...omg!!

I've got two daughters too. Think the eldest is going the same way as me. Genes can be very cruel.

That's happened to me already but I can still feel them. <<sobs in frustration making vision even more blurry>>

Listen Girlies there is some good news...

Another hairy mary here! Tweezers are my best friend. I dread ending up in a coma and my family gradually sit and watch me change into a freaking werewolf.

Beware, they multiply!!!

Just to let you know I got that elusive nipple hair today. The bastard was growing sideways and hiding in a nipple crevasse.

Oh-so- brilliant, this thread so cheered up my day...Thank you all!! xx

I have just returned to this thread after a 3 week hiatus from hair removal. I did a full on epilation session yesterday, I could have re -carpeted the house with the hairy detritus.
How lovely grin

Really enjoyed this thread. What fun I have to look forward to! hmm

I need to ask the question, how long should we put off using a wilkinson 5 blader? Is it 5 now? Maybe since I last saw an add they've gone up.

I shave my chin hairs too. I am as jumpy as a meerkat in the shower incase DH catches me at it and it blows "womanly mystique" for him.

Mine are so bad, I could almost give the kids a "dry shave", you know, where stubbly Dads/Uncles torture small children by rubbing the stubble on their faces. I also have a fair (in colour) 'tache. The sunlight must have caught it one day because DS2 (3 yrs old) looked at me and said, "Got whiskers Mummy?".

Anyway, I raise you lot chin hairs and the like, by letting out a fart at work whilst sneezing. Pelvic floor problems? Try "Anal floor problems".

My DP regularly enjoys commenting on my 'freckles' on my hands calling them liver spots. To add to that my hairy toes, which isn't so much an issue now summer is over they can be nicely covered up. I am now off to colour my sparkling white stripe on the top of my head. Mother Nature can indeed be very cruel.sad

My dd(age 25) was with me in Argos,and whilst watching me write down the caralogue numbers',she affectionatly and loudly announced "Awww mum,you've got one of those liver spots on your hand! You remind me of Gran" hmm

LaLaLaLayla Sun 18-Sep-11 02:13:21

and my fingers are getting very hairy.

Mine are too. I also have them waxed once a month.

LaLaLaLayla Sun 18-Sep-11 02:12:38

Now tell me what to use on the fucking AGE SPOT that has chosen to appear, not on my arm, leg or hand, but above my eyebrow! At least it takes the attention away from the chin hair but what do I do?

IPL Photorejuvenation. Makes age spots disappear.

I get a white hair on my chin once a month. I once pulled a haur from my back thinking it was a stray and It hurt when It cane out my shoulder blade area. Not had it back since,DH once pulled what he thought was a stray hair on my top but It was attached to my chest. bough! I too get q black hair grow on each nipple, I shave them at least twice a month lol

Im 25 sad

I get horrible thick white hairs in my eyebrows, have some white pubes and my fingers are getting very hairy. I get a black sticky out hair on the inside of my knee. Last year I found a 2 inch long hair just randomly sprouting on my cheek. I dread bright sunlight. My hair on my head is thinning and about 70% grey. I'm only 43. And I've had a massively expanding tummy and arse thing going on this year as well.

It's so unfair. Especially as my husband is 10 years younger and finds the whole thing amusing (apart from the hot-flushing psycho part).

I'm being bitch-slapped by Mother Nature sad

RoyalWelsh Sat 17-Sep-11 18:42:23

I'm 23 and I can often be found in the office, stroking my hairy hairy chin <sob>. I am pale skinned and dark haired and the buggers just keep on coming. I have to be very careful that I don't rnd up with a monobrow as well. Nipple hairs a plenty here too.

The worst thing, though, is the two occasions recent where I have been trying to pick a really stubborn scab from my forehead, only for DP to look and inform me that it is not a scab, but a long, curly, wirey, white hair. On my FOREHEAD ffs

Megfox Sat 17-Sep-11 18:19:09

I found my first chin hair when I was less than thirty! It's a shock,granted, but it's nothing to stress about, really. Some women get hairs on their chin, some don't.

My dear, late Mum used to get several, very dark hairs on her chin. I would watch in distatste, as she clipped them with nail scissors!

As soon as my two dark and one white hairs appear on my chin, I PLUCK them out at the root! No mercy!

TeenageWildlife Sat 17-Sep-11 17:13:42

Just ordered that stuff form Amazon - thanks. Now tell me what to use on the fucking AGE SPOT that has chosen to appear, not on my arm, leg or hand, but above my eyebrow! At least it takes the attention away from the chin hair but what do I do? <<wails>>
