Chin hair is what some men often look forward to growing, whereas for women, it definitely is on the list of unwanted hair growth.
Chin hair is normally associated with men and is something perceived as not being able to be grown by women.
However, women are very much capable of growing hair on their chin, and it is perfectly natural for finer, lighter, barely noticeable hair to grow. It’s when the hair starts to become darker, thicker and coarser that it becomes a problem, and one that can certainly identify a health problem such as a hormone imbalance.
Why do men and women develop chin hair?
During puberty both males and females body’s change and it’s the males that develop and grow hair on their face.
This is down to Androgens. Androgens are male hormones that are found naturally in men and women but occur more prominently in men. These hormones are responsible for males to sprout facial hair, as well as being responsible for other changes during puberty.
As we said earlier, a woman naturally tends to have lighter, finer and unnoticeable hair on their chins.
However, when there is a hormone imbalance such as the male hormone becoming more dominant in the body, thanks to health conditions such as Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), women will tend to grow thicker, more noticeable hair on their chins. This can become distressing, upsetting and even cause understandably, confidence issues for a woman.
Another time when women will start to grow thicker chin hair is when the menopause comes into effect. The menopause causes hormonal changes and starts to produce naturally more male hormones and than female hormones, as these are no longer required as much as they were before.
This is typically when ladies will start to notice stray hairs appearing in places they haven’t before, such as the chin area.
Thankfully, there are many ways for women (and men) to remove this unwanted hair growth, with many products helping them to achieve their overall softer and hairless look.
Best hair removal method for chin hair
For men, they tend to shave their chin hair and do so on a regular basis, but for women shaving really isn’t a recommended method to get rid of chin hair?
Why? Well, shaving chin hair is only a quick fix and will cause your hair to grow back even thicker and quicker, which is something you are trying to avoid.
The best method for longer lasting results is to either wax, use tweezers or an epilator.
Waxing is by far the best way to rid your unwanted chin hair for a few weeks.
Waxing will pull the whole hair out of the follicle, which means your follicle will have to grow a new hair from scratch which takes longer than pushing through the hair that has been ‘cut’ at skin level like it does when shaved. Waxing also makes the hair that grows back thinner, resulting in less coarse hair, and obviously a long time to be hair free.
For ultimate permanent, hair removal of your chin hair, our FRÉNÉSIES Facial Cream goes hand in hand with waxing, to provide you with permanent hair reduction.
Our cream is loaded with the very best natural ingredients that have been scientifically proven to stop hair regrowth within 2-4 uses (6 in rarest cases)
Specifically adapted for use on the face, our cream will also soothe and moisturise your skin beautifully, leaving no tell-talesign that you are permanently removing unwanted hair growth.
FRÉNÉSIES facial cream will only work once the whole hair has been removed from the follicle, so the ingredients can get down to the root, to block the hair regrowth and weaken the hair and root, until eventually it completely stops the hair from growing.
After the first use, you’ll notice up to a 70% reduction in hair growth and with a few more cycles of treatment, complete hair removal for good.
If you’ve started to notice your chin is growing hair that is noticeable and dark, we would strongly advise you visit your GP first before undertaking any type of hair removal.
Your doctor will be able to establish why this is happening, especially as this could be a prominent sign of an underlying health issue that may need medical attention.
