    Post mustache (women)

    If a woman shaves her mustache hair, does it really grow back thicker? My mom has a mustache, she bleaches it, but I think it is still noticable. Is there a better way to get rid of it? If she waxed it, and it grew back, wouldn't it have to be pretty long before you could do it again??

    Your best option would be to go to the dermatologist and have your facial hair removed permenantly with a laser. It's not cheap but it's worth every penny.

    A woman's mustache is called a BUFFOODOE!

    It isn't thicker when it grows back, it's just immediately very noticeable (and stubbly) because the hair is cut bluntly on the end. Waxing can be done every week, and is the best option out there. If your hair is super fine and doesn't wax well (like mine), try Nair hair removal cream for faces, but test it first and be sure to time it well! It can burn your skin if left on too long. If this happens some antibiotic cream or ointment usually takes care of the burn in an hour or two. And just a tip... Nair usually irritates the least when it's used on thicker skin (such as the lip or thigh), not thinner skin like the cheek or shins. Hope this helps!

    If your mom starts waxing her hair it will eventually grow back thinner and finer. This is also true for eyebrows.

    In fact, I had a thick dark mustache and now only have about 5-10 hairs that still grow, but I've been waxing for years.

    I had very fine hairs growing on my chin and my mother once made a comment about me 'doing something about them'. They were hardly noticeable, but she made me feel selfconscious and once i began plucking them they became darker, thicker and grew faster. I was lucky to find a very good electrolysists (laser never worked for me and i tried it for nearly one year, but there are so many types of laser around, so one may work for you). Thankfully, with the elctrolysis i'm now hair free, appart from those tiny hairs which you require a microscope to see.

    Currently I use Sally Hansen's Facial Hair Removal cream. It's a white cream that you apply to the moustache area. Wait for about 3 minutes and then you wash off with water. Do a slight gentle scrub with fingers. And the hair just comes right off. I used to use the bleaching cream but it was obvious when light shined on it at a certain angle. I have found that I have more hair there now (thin) and slightly thicker (ends of moustache) but the cream works well. I have used it for about 6-8 months. The only downside to it is that it 1)stinks 2)Must must moisturize the area afterwards!!! The aloe vera thing they give you is not enough. I have found that a drop or two of a nice oil works well. I usually use it once a week. Do not leave on longer than necessary as it makes the area extremely sensitive. And do not apply more than necessary.

    Re: mustache (women)

    I've been shaving mine since I was 16 and I'm 45 now and I don't think it's gotten thicker but like previously mentioned it does have to be done daily or your stubble will show through.

    If you can afford it then laser would be a fantastic way to go but please make sure they know what they are doing.

    Good luck and hugs, Laura

    I went to the laser clinic and they told me lasers offer hair reduction, not removal. They said I would need an initial 3-4 treatments to get all the growing cycles and then probably every 6 months or so after. It would never be permanent. They said if I want permanent removal, then I'd have get electrolysis.

    I got a 'Tweezie' and it works great, I also use the hair inhibitor cream and it has slowed down the facial hair both chin and upper lip quite nicely!

    24chelios, you are fortunate that the laser clinic explained that it wouldn't be permanent. A lot of those places promise you "permanent" when it's not. I've come across a few people who had even worse hair problems after attempting laser.

    The lady who i did my electrolysis through does a lot of men's backs due to laser not working for them.

    Trust me, when someone does a good job of electrolysis and you know it's permanent it is the best feeling in the world to not have to wake up first thing each and every morning and go checking for hairs. This is one miracle (along with laser eye surgery) which i have never regretted doing and never taken for granted.
