Dealing with Chin Hair, An Interview With Women

Aug 17, 2007
From an interview with various women, I have leared the following about dealing with chin hair: "Use the tweezer method. First get the magnifying mirror and then try and find a discreet place that allows direct sunlight - you will find that you have more hairs to pluck than at first thought - regular light won't show them all. So then you get in the car and look in the car mirror and see the strays in all of their glory. Also need to watch out for the white hairs - they are very strong and really show up under eye shadow. It works great, never irritates, and is fast and easy. I think sometimes women feel funny shaving their face hair but we shouldn't."

"I tweeze, but every so often I get fed up and go for electrolysis. The only place it's uncomfortable is on the upper lip. I try to time visits with going to the dentist. He freezes my upper lip and then I head straight to my electrolysist and ask for a half hour. That takes care of all of them for quite awhile. A dermatologist is the person to ask for a recommendation."

"It solves the problem permanently, but not forever, but for a long time. I had electrolysis done on my upper lip when I was 20 (no other little hairs were visible then), again when I was around 38, then again, along with some nasty chin hairs, when I was 48 or so. Now, over a decade later, I have almost no upper lip hair, but those darn little chin hairs are growing in faster than I'd like, so will probably go back for more. If I feel discomfort - okay, some pain - my electrolysist turns down the zapper, but then the hair may grow back, albeit thinner and lighter. So it lengthens the treatment somewhat. I think electrolysis is a great solution, not all that expensive and gives you years of freedom! Just check with your dermatologist. Also make sure that the electrolysist designates a new needle just for you (in a holder with your name on it). All the good ones do, in fact, it may be required by law now."

"I was glad to read in lifestyle magazines that you also enjoy the thrill of the wire like white hair. Actually I had a book written by ex-model Dayle Haddon who was in her 50s at time it was written. She devoted a good section to just this subject -gave all of her girlfriends magnifying mirrors for Christmas. She really stressed the white hairs - actually I find that sometimes I can see them in not as bright a light as the darker hairs - but sure can feel them. I also have naturally wavy hair so many become ingrown with very strong roots."

"I'm looking into laser hair removal since it's become so much cheaper now. It is suppose to work well on fair skin with dark hair, which is what I have. I spoke with the plastic surgeon, and I can continue to shave during the process also. It should take care of about 85% of the hair I have. That would be a miracle."
