My Most Hirsute Spots (Pics)


I finally found a better camera stuffed away in my drawers full of crap.

Here are some photos of my hirsute spot right now: my neck. I have no idea why my hair grows so much here as opposed to other places.

Speaking of which, I also refilled my Spironolactone today.

I strongly believe with that and my on-going electrolysis treatments, I will handle this issue once and for all!

I plan on taking care of this maddness this coming Saturday during my next electrolysis appointment, Thank God!

Pics of Electrolysis Before and After


So I had my first electrolysis appointment in years on Tuesday. I must say my electrologist is very straight forward with me. She explained that I will have to maintain treatments to get optimal results for permanency. As nice and friendly as she was, she was very stern and this is only because (or I assume) she wants you to get the best bang for your buck and I don’t blame her one bit!

I also told her I am no spironolactone and she was very pleased with that.

I told her I wanted to go to someone who has some type of national accreditation and she explained it’s good to look for but not always necessary to find a good electrologist. Some states simply do not require an electrologist to be licensed. But at the same time, you don’t want to go to someone who does not know what the hell they are doing and you end up looking worse than when you stepped in the office!!

Basically, she inserted a small needle into each hair follicle. It actually did not take as long as I thought. She did most of my whiskers, chin and sideburns in less than 40 mins (36 minutes to be exact.) The needles insertion doesn’t hurt. I mean, you can feel the slightest pressure of it going in but you will feel the current of heat. I say heat because she used thermolysis on me which is a mode of electrolysis that uses heat as opposed to electricity.

The heat was tolerable, but I will not say it was completely painless. Now there were some hairs I did not feel being zapped at all, but most of them, yes, I felt some sensation. I did not cry nor did I ask for her to crank the energy down, though I’m sure I could if the intensity was too much for me.

You can also request numbing cream as some areas are quite sensitive like the bikini line or the upper lip hairs.

In my opinion, it’s worth it. I did have some swelling and some tiny scars, but I know they will clear up. It’s quite normal to see some small scabs on the individual treated hairs so do not fret too much if you get them after getting electrolysis. Now if you see bruising and huge scars, there’s a problem.

If you have the money to maintain treatments, I would go for laser hair removal, but understand you will likely be getting treatments done forever. If your goal is to be hair free forever, give electrolysis a try.

Now here are some before and after pics of the lower part of my face, right on the corner of my mouth, where I am the most hairiest.

Hirsutism Photos before my Electrolysis!


I will be having my first electrolysis session in years this week approaching!

I have been growing out the hairs on my neck, sideburns and chin for the past week to prepare for the session. I took these photos this evening.

Considering how bad my hair has been over the past decade, I’m not as hairy as I was, say, in college.

Basically, I have not touched my epilator. Shaving the hair is fine but removing the hair from the root is discouraged when undergoing electrolysis treatments.

I will certainly post for after photos the day I have my electrolysis done.

I get vicious ingrowns, especially on my neck.

Besides the hair, hyperpigmentation is also an issue for me.

I cannot wait to start documenting my progress with photos!

Bikini Hair Epilating, Going “Down there,” Boy-Cut Panties and Other Tips *PICS & Raunchy Humor!*


So I woke up this morning and realized I have not tamed my coochie in a while.

Yes, it was looking like  it hasn’t been cut in about 4 months!

And I got to thinking that, while preparing my ammunition for my coochie hair, who is looking down there anyway?! Why all the huff puff about making the bikini line looking flawless!?

For any type of ethnic background and hair type, whenever you remove a hair from the shaft you run the risk of an ingrown, even if you removed it properly.

I like epilating alot, especially for my face and bikini line. Epilating is basically several tweezers on a small device rotating rapidly to capture all hairs and pull from the root. If it sounds painful it’s because it is! But it takes getting use to like anything else.

There simply is no method of hair removal that is painless while being effective AND THERE IS NO PERMANENT  HAIR REMOVAL METHOD BESIDES ELECTROLYSIS!!!!

Even as promising as laser hair removal is, you WILL NEED touch-up sessions in the long-term, thus it is not permanent. This is coming from a woman who has been there, done that with laser hair removal.

And even more deep, does your man REALLY go down “there” that much that the shit constantly got to look like the letter “I” ?!

If so, I ‘m officially jealous of you, and secondly, if he any damn good at it, why the hell is he worried about your bikini line?! He ain’t munching on that too is he?! (Sounds kinky though…. 🙂

Now in his defense (or hers…yes I got love for the LGBT community too!) you may want to keep it trimmed occasionally. I mean, he’s trying to please you, not floss!!!

So getting back to my Amazonian bikini line…I typically do not like shaving my bikini line and try to keep to epilating due to the horrific razor bumps that can happen down there.

But I made sure to moisten my body first and then epilate in the tub!

SO HERE ARE THE STEPS I TOOK TO CLEAN UP MY BIKINI LINE THIS MORNING EPILATING!

  1. Ran very warm bath water and put a very generous amount of body hemp oil in it along with a small amount of bath bubbles.
  2. Got my epilator together
  3. Sat my ass in
  4. Relaxed for about 10 minutes to let my body and pores take in the oil.
  5. I took the epilator and shaved my happy trail and bikini line
  6. I then took the epilator part and epilated my trail and bikini line (*Note: my epilator is a shaver/epilator in one that I can use in water!)
  7. Because the epilator can be uncomfortable, I only epilated in the direction of hair growth bit by bit.
  8. Got my hairy ass out
  9. Dried off and immediately put some Aloe Vera gel on my fresh epilated regions as well as some organic shea and coconut oil butter by Bubble and Bee. (*note: good stuff but it’s greasy as hell! Use lightly!) Also try, Bikini Zone.…Good shit there!
  10. Put some clothes on my ass
  11. Took pics!

Keeping the bikini line moisten keeps hairs from acting an ass and not ingrowing. Again, I cannot stress putting something on your freshly epilated hairs. Aloe Vera is good on everything and Bikini Zone is also VERY GOOD for reducing ingrowns! It works very well for my cooch!

And you can always wear some boy cut panties. May work best for those who do not like to removal all the hair. I personally do not remove my bikini hairs full Brazilian style. I mean, WHY? Seriously, why?! Who is going to be looking that damn hard at your ass other than YOU?! I am all for feeling great about yourself but I don’t think I want hot wax put between my ass and ripped off. Might have to pass on that on that one! But suit yourself!!!

Boy cuts are of course shaped to cover much of the bikini line if you are still self-conscious about stubborn blemishes that wont seem to go away.  Here are some photos of me in some, though the quality in some may be slightly blurry because the mirrors in my bathroom and the lens on my camera phone were a little foggy after bathing:

Wear these to cover up much of your bikini line blemishes. They cover mine very well. I actually prefer boy cut bikinis and underwear to regulars.

Did I mention boy cuts make your ass look GREAT!!!!! (*OK OK I’ll stop!  LOL!)

So here is the real reason you’re here! Some before and afters of my freshly epliated bikini!

Bikini Line After

Bikini Line After

There are still small hairs that even my epilator didn’t catch but as you can see it’s pretty clean and some old blemishes are going away! I make it a point to not shave down there all the time, which allows blemishes and ingrowns to clear up.

With boy cut panties you cover up many scars which is good because it allows damaged skin to repair itself while enjoying the beach or your man doing his “thing” down there!!! 🙂

Let me remind you that epilating hairs down there can hurt! I recommend only epilating when the skin is very lubricated.

You can also do this method with waxing as well, just as long as you lubricate your skin with Aloe Vera gel or some type of lotion or Bikini Zone lubed on all recently tweezed, waxed, electrolysized, lasered or epilated hairs.

So the point is epilating does hurt but it removes sensitive hairs very well and maybe help ease your bikini line blues!

Chemical Peel for Hirsutism Scars (with photo!)


So this morning I woke up morning to a face full of this!

 

A few days after the salicylic acid, my face started to “peel.” My first felt smooth but tight. You know how when you smile or move your mouth from side to side and your face feels like it’s saying “snap, crackle, pop!?”

That’s how my face felt the days immediately following me initially applying the chemical peel.

So this is what a liquid salicylic acid peel looks like. It’s more so of my skin shedding than peeling, like the directions said it would.

I have to wait several days to a week to allow skin to completely peel which I will do.

To remove the dry skin, I used a homemade liquid black soap solution with organic glycerin to ease up on the dryness of african black soap to wash my face.

Much of the peel is gone but my face still feels dry even after applying a light moisturizer.

So if you are thinking about a peel, it may look something like what I posted above. Alot of shedding of skin as I suspected. It doesn’t hurt but be sure not to scrub your face too hard or you might damage your skin some.

I can tell my skin is trying to even itself out already, but until I finish shedding I wont know for sure.
