I broke my wrist in July, and had to be shaved for surgery.Will I have this hairy man-hand forever, or will my fine, soft and silky hairs return? If it's the former, how can I get rid of the long, course hairs - I don't want have a bald wrist!Ta muchly
I know you said you don't want to have a bald wrist but since I discovered epilating my hands and arms look so much better less like a mansNot brave enough to use it on my legs yet though [wimp]
Oooo maud, does it not hurt on your hands and arms. I'd love to have hair free hands and arms - I look like a gorilla!!
It does at first but you quickly get used to it - I did try my armpits and bikini line but that was a step too far and had me yelping within seconds.When it does grow back it does seem to be thinner and less noticeable and mine were as hairy as DHs and very very dark
I may resort to that in the future! Skin's too tender at the mo. It looks so weird because it's just 3 inches or so!!But thanks
Ouch, I done it!!!! But it looks so much better, I've got lady arms and not gorilla arms yeah!!
Songbird, my dh has broken both wrists (at different times) but both times, when the plaster was removed, his hairs were much, much coarser than before. Good news is they do return to normal but I can't remember how long it took.
Thanks for that snowmummy.And well done jillywilly!!!
