  • Nope, but my leg hair grows back faster now. I swear I shave my legs every other day now. Usually,I would only have to twice a week.

  • Yes, I have hair on my face. I use the Sally Hansen cream hair remover for face, it doesn't itch when it grows back.

  • I have PCOS and before I had kids I already had some... but I could go a day or 2 without shaving and it wouldnt be noticeable....

    its been 2 years since I had my last child and not only do I have much much more hair... but if I truly want to remain stubble free I have to shave twice a day !!!

  • Yup, hair on my belly, chin, neck and my woman stache got darker. I have to wax at least once every 2 weeks if not more.

  • YES, I have already had to shave 3 times a week, now its every other week. I have to pluck the hairs off my face every week or so because they're thick and stubbly. I tried creams but my skin is so sensitive I started to break out in a rash. Tweezing causes bumps, shaving doesn't work so much because it seems to grow back darker and hairier. Next thing I'm going to try is threading and hope that it'll will work because its like waxing and waxing breaks me out too. This is so annoying!
