Michael, I just had an electrolysis session to treat the ingrowns.

I think it went well, but now that I'm back home and putting a fresh batch of aloe vera on the treated areas, I'm noticing that all the treating sites are hard bumps.

Is that normal?

If I can get the patient's permission, I'm going to post some photos of the worst case of shaving I've ever seen. This is on a 15-year-old girl's "bikini" area. Each side has 50 to 100 severe ingrown hairs (at least two will now require surgery).

As I will show (I hope) a deeply ingrown hair sometimes "coils" and goes through its entire growth cycle ... starts a new hair ... and on and on.

From one of these horrible "lesions" ... I have already removed three hairs and can see at least another two coiled-up below the skin. I told the girl and her mom that she will have scars from this mess and her electrolysis journey is going to be a long one.

One suggestion for awarren28 (I know it sounds impossible) ... but, confide in a girl. Somehow doing this always stops the depression immediately.



That poor girl - I can't even begin to imagine the discomfort of having that many ingrowns.

Are you keeping the Aloe in the fridge? The cold makes it even more soothing when it goes on.

Welcome Emma.

It is okay for you to introduce your new blog site on hair removal here by making an announcement that it exists and explaining who you are - a hair removal specialist? A consumer ? A person that represents a certain company? You can still introduce yourself here if you want.

Please take the following as feedback for your blog and not as an attack.

I read over the section on the NO! NO!. It was glowing and positive. Many would disagree with the information. Do you know that hair does not conduct energy and there are several law firms representing consumers and stock holders in class action law suits against this company?

Several studies about NO! NO!'s effectiveness were flawed and it has been concluded that NO! NO! is no more effective than shaving.

I felt the NO! NO! section of your blog was just another infomercial
for a product that has a shady consumer history. It is listed as PHMD on the Nasdaq and the chart shows a very bumpy ride with this product. They have been close to bankruptcy and spend a lot on advertising compared the revenue the product actually brings in, according to an article I just read.

Another matter - your review of home electrolysis kits was pretty accurate. Nobody in their right mind would remove hair this way, unless it was for a few hairs on their forearm or legs. Neophyte hair consumers just can't do this well. Going to a professional electrologist is safer and much faster. I hope people reading your remarks can make the distinction between electrolysis being a slow and tedious proceedure when performed by an untrained person in their bathroom, using a flimsy home kit and a professional, well-trained electrologist using surgical magnification and expensive equipment , designed for removing large quantities of hair, in an ergonomic office setting. It's NOT ELECTROLYSIS that is responsible for this fact, it is THE UNTRAINED HUMAN BEING thinking that they know how to perform electrolysis in their home that brings about such conclusions.

There is no easy way down for permanent hair removal because of hair growth cycles and the complexity of inserting a metal probe correctly into a tiny hair follicle. It is isn't quick or instantaneous. No method can boast about easy, permanent hair removal. Those seeking hair removal should be told the realities of this straight up and honestly, something that many of us try to do here on Hairtell. If you want your blog to be the Go-To site for honesty about hair removal, then keep it honest and well-researched, complete with sources.

I notice one common denominator in blogs about electrolysis - the blogger never consults with electrologists. To make sure your comments are accurate or if more information is needed, wouldn't you get several electrologists to review the information before you release information?

Common words seen, in regard to electrolysis, are ancient, old, antiquated, tedious, scarring, slow, painful, expensive. Talk to professional electrologists about the misery of home products and doing it yourself. We know many clients that have scarred themselves or have just given up because it is not easy for an untrained person to remove a hair properly. Talk to them them about modern electrolysis care and then your blog will be complete.

I have thin and thick hair everywhere and I feel like it's a curse that I can't get rid off. I wish I had a friend with the same hair growth as me that I can see. At least we could help each other remove the hair . I'm hoping for a cure and a brighter future .

Love this site! Been reading a lot, very informative and helpful. I have seen photos on here of ladies who have posted their facial hair growth (very brave of them! ) I have /had very bad chin hair, really conscious of it, I'd find meself putting me hand up to me lips to cover me chin when talking to people. I also find meself looking at other ladies chins to see if they had hair there.
