One great thing about being pregnant is that your hair gets really shiny and thick and full. It grows tons faster than when you’re sans bebe, and my normally limp locks transform into a bouncy mane.
The only downside to this crazy hair growth, is that some women also get random whiskers in strange places. Luckily, I am not one of those women. This isn’t my way of telling you I’ve sudden sprouted boob beards or stubble on my ass. Fortunately, I’ve never really been much of a hairy person so I don’t have any clandestine crevices that are now suddenly sporting Rapunzel’s tresses. (THANK GOD.)
The only place I’ve noticed a dramatic increase in hair is, oddly, my eyebrows. This could be due to pregnancy or maybe it’s the fact that all of a sudden I’m outside in the natural light after living like a Carmelite nun in the darkness of our house all winter. But I noticed my brows were getting seriously bushy. And not in a cute Brooke Shields kind of way — but as in — “Is that an eyebrow or a forehead hair???” — kind of way.
But Surgi-Wax is so easy that I don’t even have to drag my lazy butt to the salon for a wax. I can remove my uni-brow in the privacy of my own home! Once I got so carried away that I decided to wax all the peach fuzz off my fingers and toes. Then I talked Grey into letting me strip him of his nostril hair. Let’s just say I should have quit while I was ahead with that one; it’s harder that you’d think to remove wax from deep inside a man’s nose holes — no matter how easy the wax spreads.
