What Ethnicities have the Hairiest Women?

I know it crosses peoples’ minds from time to time; what is the smartest race? Dumbest? Best looking? Most likely to go to jail? Yadda Yadda…
But how often do we ask which race (or in this case ethnicity) is the hairiest?!
Now this blog post is NOT intended to offend anyone. This is just an interesting hirsutism topic I decided rap about that clearly is not discussed in many other similar blogs or websites.
It is well know that with hirsutism, especially idiopathic hirsutism, genetics play a huge part in the hair distribution make up on a woman.

The worst parts for a hirsute woman are typically her face and abdomen area. I have seen hairy women of all ethnic backgrounds.
From my own personal analysis, I cannot pin point any type of race that may be deemed hairier than the other because some of the most hirsute women I have ever seen in my life were all from different backgrounds.
I recall a long time ago being in a restaurant and standing next to a friendly Hispanic woman who had obviously just finished shaving her thick facial hair. The stumble was growing from her sideburns down her neck. This particular woman was heavy set so looking back on it, she could have had a more serious underlying cause for her hirsutism.

The thickest mustaches that I ever seen were on two black women. I remember seeing a woman at Wal Mart and another woman at a local university, both with mustaches made of very thick, black hair against brown skin. The crazy thing was they seemed to actually like their staches! The staches were nicely trimmed and neat! They almost seemed proud parading their mustaches in public! I was almost more fascinated with their self-confidence than their cleanly shaven mustaches!
White women, particularly blondes, got it a little easy. All the hairy blonde women I ever seen had very light hair against very fair skin. A white girl I worked with a few years back had dark hair but very heavy facial hair, but the facial hair was extremely light. The naked eye probably could not tell she may have been a bit hirsute. I did have an Italian women work in my doctor’s office who had pretty fair skin but very dark hair who admitted to getting laser hair treatments on her arms and face. She and I chatted about hirsutism for a few minutes and she sympathized with my pain, claiming to be the hairiest woman in her clan too!
I recall seeing an Indian girl on my college campus several years back who was extremely pretty, mocha skin, thick, shiny long hair and very soft-haired sideburns. They were very thick, but the hair was so soft, sweeping underneath her earlobes, it truly did not look that bad in my opinion, even on days I recall her pulling her hair back.
But according to a study published in the Human Reproduction Update on November 6, 2011, the Ferriman-Gallwey scale and other logical subjective factors rate these ethnicities of women from hairiest to least hairiest (of the racial groups tested):
1.       Turkish women (of Middle Eastern backgrounds)
2.       Mexican, Iranian, Spanish
3.       Italian
4.       White (of Hispanic and Caucasian backgrounds) and Black Americans
5.       Asian (of Chinese and Thai backgrounds)

The study itself admitted its shortcomings such as the subjective view of numerous physicians trying to decide what is a hairy woman and what is not? How hairy is she? How thick is the hair? How dark?

That is probably why there is not a lot of solid data on our condition because the conditions of determinacy have to be subjective. A well-qualified doctor will have to be able to determine what is hairy, what is not, and then that doctor would have to even be educated and experienced enough in hormonal disorders. I went to one endocrinologist who did nothing for me, but the second one I chatted with gave me the medication I needed right away!
In addition, even if these determinations from the Human Reproduction Update are accurate, it certainly does not deem one group of women or men more attractive than the other. There are different strokes for different folks and no two people are meant to look the same anyway. What is a turn off to you might be a turn on to someone else. Therefore, before you claim all Turkish women are weird looking and all Asian women are perfect, make sure your own flaws are in check!

FINALLY!!! An FDA approved at-home laser hair for Dark Skin Tones!!!! Now…does it work?!

So there is finally an at-home laser hair removal market for darker skin toned women suffering from hirsutism or excessive hair growth!

A company based in the Middle East called Syneron was awarded USA FDA approval for their me hair removal system. It will be available for the US consumer in early 2013.

Yes, it is simply called the me.

It is an at-home laser hair removal system that uses radio frequency waves and IPL (intense pulse light) to deliver lower energy, but effective treatments to hair.

I am so excited because for years there simply was no market for people with darker skin tones to do at-home laser hair removal. They would have to turn to the likes of professional salons and pay out the ass for it!

Now, the me works for MOST skin types. Scroll down to the bottom of the link for me for the type of skin tones me can and cannot treat.

For the most part, the me can not treat very dark skin and very light hair. The ideal client would have light to medium skin tones and dark hair….as with most laser hair removal systems that are not professional.

Here are some pics to compare medium to dark (untreatable) skin types:

This little Indian girl, while very pretty, would not be a good candidate for the me.

Kim Porter (one of P. Diddy’s more high profile baby mommas) might be a more decent candidate.


I love Africans!!! I Swear their skin always has NO PIMPLES!!! But sadly, the me laser would damage her skin. She would not be a good candidate.


Chili from TLC would be a good candidate

Lovely Aishwarya would be an ideal candidate!

So I hope that gives you a better idea of what type of skin tones would be good for the me.

In case you are curious and have not clicked on the link, here is a picture of the me:

Now on to the pressing question:  DOES THE BITCH WORK???

I am still on the fence about buying this thing! I have seen it vary in cost from $500 to $700 US Dollars. I mean, it received FDA approval so it must be somewhat effective, otherwise the U.S. government would not have approved it. The only other at-home laser hair removal machine to get FDA approval is the Tria, which is selective in the skin types it treats. Imagine the law suits if they OK’ed a piece of shit that burned the hell out of women!!! I’m sure it underwent quiet a bit of testing.

Additionally, not two bodies are made the same. Considering skin type, hair type, health, hormones and other medications you may be taking, might alter your results after several weeks of use.

With that being said, I cannot say how effective this device is. From the research I have done, I have seen mixed results. But honestly the reviews have been more good than bad.

But the thing is, with the handful I found, it simply was not enough opinions to sway my wallet. I mean, I didn’t even count a hundred reviews. The one (yes, I said ONE!) review I found on Amazon was bad…and again, it was just ONE! I guess it just goes to show you how new the device is or at least it simply is not available in many countries, certainly not the US.

So while I am so thrilled there is a market for darker toned women who want laser hair removal but cannot afford professional treatments, I am still going to have to wait for more reviews before I take that plunge! But kudos to Syneron for expanding their products’ capabilities to consider more diverse skin tones!
