Re: A question to the men of the board.

I'm 36, but not yet suffering from any unwanted extruders, does that mean I am still a boy?

I use a nose clipper and usually when my hair dresser cuts my hair she normally gives my eye browses a trim.

Not really bothered by the hair on my chest or back.

Re: A question to the men of the board.

I remove unwanted hair by attaching it with steel cable to several wild boars with fireworks in their arses who run wildly in all directions as I scream and bellow into the night with heroic ferocity.

It's the manly way.

When I notice a nose hair getting wild I pluck it out... gets me a good tear duct cleaning at the same time.

Not having any problems with eye brows.

Hahahaha isn't that the truth! It's usually good for an impromptu sneeze, too.

Re: A question to the men of the board.

I'm glad this was brought up.

I've been lucky not to get too many hairs in the wrong places, but I do have to periodically pluck just a couple off of my ears (dammit). Also a few of my eyebrow hairs have decided to become thicker than the rest. I pluck those out... but it does seem like they grow back faster.

HAVE ANY MEN HERE TRIED ELECTROLYSIS? I'm talking about the self-applied kind, with a small hand held device you purchase. I've seen these for women and wonder if they'd work well for those pesky few hairs you're tired of plucking all the time.

^ I would never try anything like that. Much easier, I would think, to just use a trimmer. No plucking necessary.

Like the professionals do it - but you just can't do that in the nose or on the brows!



Have any of you had any experience with the sewing-thread-method? Afaik it's only good for 'fluff', not with the 'manly' sort of hairs that resemble metal-wire rather than downs though.
