    hey guys, i was wondering if you knew of any body hair procedures that thin or shorten body hair over long term use. i like being moderately hairy, just wish it was less. also, does anyone know what sugaring is?

    i don't think the hairless thing would work for me, but i'm considering it if i don't find alternatives.

    I just do shaving of the shoulders and upper back so I look somewhat decent in a tank top.

    I have have waxing before and that worked well for a month, but it wasn't even at the front.

    I don't know of anything that would reduce the density or length.

    I believe waxing will help reduce it over the long term, because it will often damage the follicle which can cause it to grow back thinner (IIRC). You can also bleach it or just use clippers on it. I know I don't have much hair on my chest, but it gets long on the places I have it.

    Iv tried sugaring before... if you make it right it works about as well as wax. used to do my chest before i came to terms with it. I'm not particularly hairy though so...
    i don't know how it would stand to a full patch icon_razz.gif

    Also if you don't mix it right it does nothing but make a gooey (but tasty) mess.

    Actually, shaving doesn't make hair grow back thicker. Its an old myth that shaving would do that, but its been proven wrong time and time again.

    as to the thinning of the hair, ive never really heard of a product or procedure that would make the hair grow back thinner. It may just have to be the hard way of shaving/waxing.

    I stand corrected thank you for the knowledge! I just read this:

    "The hair shaft tapers at the end. "When you shave it, you're crossing the midshaft, so it seems like it's thicker and more coarse," explains Dr. Robin Ashinoff, director of cosmetic dermatology at Hackensack University Medical Center. "But it's not."

    The stubble feels stiffer because it's cut straight across, exposing the thicker part of the shaft, and because it's short. "As it gets longer it feels softer," says Dr. D'Anne Kleinsmith, a dermatologist in West Bloomfield, Mich. Hair may also look darker after you shave, but that's not true either. "You just see these little dots against your normal skin color, and it just looks that way," says Kleinsmith. "
