What is it?
Why is it showing up “on” and “under” some female chins?
How to manage it.
In researching more information regarding chin hair, I became informed via an online article by healthline that “everyone” has hair on their face. It is called Vellus Hair or Peach Fuzz. It is light colored hair that regulates our body temperature. This should help ease all my female comrades.
Chin hair can be Cosmetic or a Medical Condition. Cosmetic in the sense that it is hormonal and not the result of a serious medical condition and can be managed with tender love and care of yourself via grooming and beauty measures. If you are currently experiencing chin hair, let’s hope and pray that it is purely cosmetic. As a Medical Condition, something serious is going on in your body that is producing the growth of hair on your face and or body.
Chin hair started appearing on my chin during my adult years. I never had it during grade school, middle school, high school, or some of my “early” college years. From first hand knowledge and experience, chin hair can appear in your adult years after puberty. Terminal Hair, “long, coarse, stiff in nature or stiff in touch, dark hair” can show up on your chin in your post puberty adult years. During a time of not having the tools necessary to manage the hair on my chin, the chin hair grew more in number. It has always been dark.
While it is quite normal for women or females to experience hair growing on their chin it is also recommended that you see a medical professional to find out why it is growing on your chin. For females there are medical conditions that could be the source of why the hair is growing on your chin.
Ways I Personally Have Managed Chin Hair
Nair – I didn’t care for this method. It didn’t work for me. This can be found at major grocery stores. This is where I purchased it. This method is suppose to give you more time between the hair growing back in.
Waxing – This hurts. But it is efficient. This is not a permanent solution. The hair does grow back in.
Women Shavers – My current method. This provides me the best results. It takes the hair off and my skin is smooth. It’s cost efficient. I can do it myself when providing maintenance to my face.
Pictured above are Walmart brand Equate™ The Essential 2 Blade Disposable Shavers. They were $0.97 for 5 Disposable Razors. Please note, with this method, you will have to continue shaving your chin to remove the hair. It doesn’t stop it from growing back in.
Available Methods To Remove Chin Hair
I don’t recommend this. It can leave your skin bumpy with ingrown hairs.
Creams Or Lotions
Nair is one of them. I personally didn’t care for this method. However, it may work great for you.
With all of these methods please consider the cost and the result that you want. If you are anything like me, I wanted it to be removed permanently. I didn’t want it growing back in. However, that process is more in cost and there is a greater risk of the scarring of your skin than some of the other ways listed.
As a female, I absolutely hate chin hair. Facial hair is commonly associated with men and as a female we don’t like hair on our face like that. We like for our face to be clean, smooth, beautiful and glowing. However, chin hair, is something that many of us have encountered and have to deal with. Thank God it’s only chin hair, it could be worse. If you agree, like this blog post and share it with your female comrades today! Sharing is caring.
Until Next Time, “Chin Up!”
