I has been toying with the idea of blogging about chin whiskers for some time now. It's something that is constantly on my mind a lot (or should I say on my face? hahahaha).
The History: I dont come from a particularly hairy stock. I am not sure what my heritage is...German. Canadian. Something like that. My dad has a tremendous amount of ear, nose, and back hair NOW...but that is because he is old. When I was 17, I was a cheerleader. I remember vividly being told by a senior on the squad..."Amy, its time you pluck your eyebrows." It was life changing! They were out of control. Seriously, I will find a picture and post it. Then, probably when I was 20, I started noticing chin hair. Just a few. Pluckable. Manageable. It has gotten worse over the years. Now I pluck every night and shave in a pinch. I am not one of those women who you can see coming with a beard (well, you have seen pictures of my face), but if you are up close, in just the right sunlight...you can see them! It takes a lot to embarrass me...but that will do it!
My Theory: It's simple logic folks. The fatter I got, the more facial hair I got. So one day I asked my dermatologist if there is a correlation between being overweight and having excess facial hair. She said "of course". Something about fat women have wonkie hormones, and the hormone surge can cause more facial hair.
The Question: As I lose weight will I lose facial hair?
The Question #2: Why does noone else ever talk about facial hair? I never see it on LBT!
The Solution: I know I could get laser. My boss got 4 treatments recently for her facial hair. It didnt do hardly anything! When she told me she was only getting 4...I was like really? I heard it could take months! So, I dont know if I can afford it. Because if I got it done, I would expect it to work.
Side note: The hair on my head is falling out at a good clip. Can't my facial hair do the same?
