      mayb you could try the "stringing" method....sorry, not sure what's the actual name. it's a process of applying some powder on skin, then use a piece of string to get the hair out...meaning plucking out the hair. might be painful. think you might be able to find some shops providing this service in Little India. i nvr tried it myself, just some suggestion.

              not sure abt how long the hair-less effect last. i've heard that it gives a smooth texture on face, make pores look smaller.

              i've tried using a tweezer pulling out facial hairs (the inbetween eyebrows part), seems like the hair grows back fast...like 2-3 weeks. one thing for sure, the hairs doesn't grow thicker, coz it's not shaving.

                I am rather hairy too. For hair on my underarms,my tweezer comes into work!For my legs,i shave or use epilator at times.Those on my back and shoulders,i leave them alone cause I think they are fine enough not to be disturbed.

                I've heard that threading does smoothen the face and it is suppose to help with easier application of cosmetics! But what is holding me back is....I keep thinking that the hair helps to capture dust and dirt and prevent them from penetrating into the skin.Does it makes sense? I am so afraid that w/o the hair,dirt can directly attack our skin. :roll:

                  Reviving this thread.

                  My sister is 16 and she's pretty worried about being 'too hairy'. She has hair on her shoulders, back, chest and entire abdomen. Fine but black and very noticable hairs. Is it normal? And what are her options to get rid of them?

                  *She seems to be the only girl in the family with such problems.

                    Some girls are just naturally hairier. I don't think it's something to worry about.

                    I think waxing will be the best option. Feels smooth and clean.

                      When I feel rich, I got to my usual facialist and ask for a "back treatment" where she'll give my back a good cleansing, scrubbing and steaming. She'll then meticulously pluck out the hairs on my back, then end with a nice mud mask -- exactly like a "facial" on the back.

                      I followup at home by scrubbing my back regularly. Somehow this helps to slow down the regrowth.

                      I guess waxing works too, but not half as fun. *ouch*

                        How she pluck out the hair? There is soooo many!! Haha, maybe I'm just hairy too. By the way how much does your facialist do your back for you? Sounds good, maybe you can share her contact with us?

                          How did she pluck the hair? She manually tweezed the out, one hair at a time. I like her because she's patient and thorough -- and she can't stand hairy backs! Haha

                          You're not alone Nixxy, I used to be able to see individual strands of hair on my back from quite a distance away when I wear tank tops or tubes

                          Her name is Shiwei. She's based at One Beauty Place (CK Tangs, level 2). I was charged $90+ for the back treatment (it's much cheaper with a package). Eh, but the last I heard she's taking a break from work .. why don't you call and check: 6738 0200. The other experienced facialist there is Monica (she's my best friend's regular lady).

                          Actually, I think most facial or spa places would customize such services for you if you if you ask nicely. If your regular facialist is someone patient (like, if she goes through every inch of your face slowly during extraction! *ouch*) you could probably start by making enquiries at your place first?

                          All the best for your hair-less endevour!

                            Thanks Jo for the info, she says she wants to try waxing soon. I guess she'll have to bear with the ouch-iness since she's not able to finance her own back treatments! haha!

                              Thanks 101mynxes, your facialist sounds so nice. Haha!! I have no regular facialist so I might try her out when I am back in SG. In the meantime, scrub scrub scrub. I feel it helps somehow, those hair on the back seems to grow more obvious when I got lazy.
