Have you ever noticed fuzz around your ears or along the hairline on your forehead? Or have you noticed that during styling, one strand of hair always sticks out and turns the wrong way?
That’s right, all this means that you are the owner of the so-called “baby hairs”. And on the one hand, they perform a positive function, but on the other, they can often spoil our look. Let’s figure out what it is and how to deal with it.
What are “baby hairs” and why do we have them?
Nature has endowed us with many protective functions. For example, reflexivity, which helps us react to an already familiar danger and not stick our fingers into the socket. Another natural feature of our body is hair.
Hair always serves to protect us from cold, dust, and the ingress of harmful elements into the body.
However, when our body realizes that there is no particular danger to the skin, it sheds baby hairs. And many adults simply don’t have them. But not all of them.
Sometimes the genetic protection necessary is so strong that such hairs remain with us for many years, and become not a way of protection, but a hindrance in our daily life.
How to deal with baby hairs?
There are several options for solving the problem. One of them is adaptation.
You can just accept the fact that baby hairs on your body grow the way they want, or change your hairstyle. For example, a pixie hairstyle allows you to get short hair quite well and hide the problem.
Another effective way is to learn how to style baby hairs without changing their hairstyles. But there are certain difficulties here because children’s hairs have a fluffy structure, they are often lighter than “terminal hair” and almost don’t react to external influence from a hairdryer or straightener.
Hairspray remains the best assistant in styling. It allows you to turn baby hairs in the desired direction. We also recommend using a fine-toothed comb for the best effect.
How to remove baby hairs?
There are several options. You can fuzz with natural oils like coconut or almond.
Natural oils work well with the skin. You need to regularly apply the oil to your vellus hair before bed so that the oil is absorbed into the hair roots. Thus, the problem can be resolved in a few weeks. You will notice that the vellus hair first became heavier and darker, and then completely disappeared.
Another way is laser hair removal. This is one of the most popular ways to deal with unwanted body hair today. The laser can remove any amount of baby hairs where you want. However, this procedure can cost quite a lot.
So, if you are the owner of vellus hair, we still do not recommend removing it immediately. Perhaps you can adapt to living with them by changing your hairstyle or learning how to style your baby’s hair with special products.
If that’s not enough, then we hope that the tips in the second part of the article will be useful for you in removing baby hairs from the body and head.
