My father was killed in a car accident when I was very young. It was tough growing up without a dad. In fact, there were no male figures in my home whatsoever. It was just my mom, my sisters, and I in our house. Sometimes it felt really great to be in a house full of all girls. There was never any worry about smelly boys and their stuff lying around all the time. We could walk out of the shower with just a towel wrapped around us without having to worry about a boy barging in on us.
It had down sides, too. It was sometimes difficult to understand guys as I was growing up. With no brothers and no dad to turn to for a male perspective, it was sometimes difficult to navigate the thoughts and motives of some of the boys I went to school with.
What made it even more difficult and isolating was how very different I was from my mom and my sisters. They are petite, and I am very tall. They are brunettes, I am blonde. They have blue and gray eyes, I have green. They all knew exactly what to say and do in social situations, I am socially awkward. They liked movies and listening to music, I preferred paperbacks and poetry. Some of the differences between us were ones that turned out to be for the better: one of these differences in particular worked out to my benefit. They all had some unwanted facial hair, and I was fuzz free!
The facial hair was not thick and stubbly like a man’s, but soft and downy, and mainly above their upper lips. It was usually eliminated through waxing, tweezing, or bleaching, but all of them wished they didn’t have to go through the process. I told them about no no hair removal in an effort to help give them a permanent solution to hair removal.
They all used it, and all love it. No no hair removal has helped keep their facial hair from coming back, and they don’t have to worry about it at all anymore.
