Hello... I am 22 im a very hairy. And my hair grows back faster after waxing it.

Yes: Hair follicles grow hair. If the follicle is not destroyed, the hair will grow back and often it seems faster since it is starting from the follicle. The only way to stop the growth is removing or destroying the fiollicle which can be performed with lasers (alex) if the hair is dark. At best, only 85% is destroyed. ...Read more

What causes someone's body to be really hairy?

What causes someone's body to be really hairy?

Genetics: Some ethnicities have more than others; within each, the amount of hair varies considerably. Male hormones are required to express the tendency, and a woman with some extra male hormones may remain a functioning woman but have more hair than a smooth man. Some folks like more body hair, some prefer smooth; more men are now keeping it trimmed for comfort / convenience. ...Read more

Will every hairy baby grow up to be a hairy man?

Will every hairy baby grow up to be a hairy man?

No.: Hairy babies often are covered in a type of hair called lanugo. This usually falls out in weeks to months. When a baby comes from a hairy mom and a hairy dad, that baby is likely to grow up to be hairy, whether male or female. Conversely hairless parents rarely produce very hairy children. And in response to your question; not if they're girls. ...Read more

Why is it that men are far hairier than women, in general?

Why is it that men are far hairier than women, in general?

Sexual dimorphism: This has evolved as a way for a man to demonstrate sexual maturity / virility. The whole subject of evolution of traits that distinguish grown men from grown women, why they vary between species and between members of the same species (many women say they prefer smooth men), is a fascinating read in the realm of evolutionary biology. ...Read more

How do I emotionally cope with being a super hairy young man?

How do I emotionally cope with being a super hairy young man?

Embrace it: Many women love a hairy man, and many smooth men are envious. You're at a somewhat greater risk for a pilonidal "cyst" and you may have hair loss sooner. You can shave what you don't want; don't opt for electrolysis until you're very sure your wife prefers smooth. For us men, 95% of looking good is being lean and well-muscled. Focus on this. Even better -- be a great, effective, nice guy. ...Read more

Why am I so hairy? After I shave it grows back with even more...

What can I do if my dads really hairy, does this mean i'l be the same?

What can I do if my dads really hairy, does this mean i'l be the same?

Maybe: I take it you're not fully grown. Heredity determines a man's body hair quantity. Body hair goes in and out of fashion and different men and women claim to have different preferences. Hairier men tend to develop male pattern baldness sooner. Male good looks are more about physical fitness than anything else. I hope you get what you want, and that you are comfortable overall with your body. ...Read more

Hubby is excessively hairy but does not want to shave. What causes this?

Hubby is excessively hairy but does not want to shave. What causes this?

Genetics: Except for a handful of unusual conditions (persistent lanugo, porphyria cutanea tarda), the amount of body hair that a man gets is determined by genetics; hairier men tend to become bald sooner. I'm glad for his sake that he likes his genetic heritage, and since this won't change, perhaps you can pretend to like it as well. Some stars such as alec baldwin (photo) also embraced the hairy look. ...Read more

A 25 year old man. I am hairy. I have hairy shoulders and even some appearing on my earlobes. I have got more hairy since I was 18. Is this normal?

A 25 year old man. I am hairy. I have hairy shoulders and even some appearing on my earlobes. I have got more hairy since I was 18. Is this normal?

Yes: The amount of body hair both men and women have is highly variable; the range of normal is very wide. Hair growth is strongly correlated with the amount of androgen (testosterone) hormones. As you matured, likely more of these hormones were produced. Dealing with it is personal preference. I would say at least carefully trim your earlobes with scissors. Ask intimate partners about preferences:) ...Read more
