My hair is migrating!

My under arm hair has gone walk about, only to appear on my chin. My down below hair 🥴 is now coming out my nose instead of where it should be. The hair on top of my head is thinning but it’s now luxuriating on my top lip. The hair on my legs is still there but has spread to top of my toes. Goodness only knows what I’m turning into, half bald yeti comes to mind.
Anyone else have similar problems?

No 😄but that’s hilarious Bluebellwould

Perhaps you’re a Hobbit?

All my body hair has disappeared including the hairs in my nose with the consequence that my nose runs all the time. The hair on my head is thin.

Getting old is not for wimps.

🤣🤣🤣 Well, that OP brightened a grim afternoon!!

One of my big toes is hairy, the other is not.

I'm trying to work out which of my ancestors was a Hobbit.

My eyebrows have moved south to either side of my mouth, underarm and leg hair gone, down below hair growing madly and head hair not changed (always was big and curly!)
Great post 🙃

Hilarious! Sounds just like me!

I always remember Billy Connelly talking about 'down below' hair keeping on growing and what should you do with it and I have to say that short and curly now seems more long and straight.

I remember noticing an unwelcome intruder on my top lip the same day I noticed ‘fluff’ on my son’s top lip, he was 14, he’s 30 today. His is now tamed as he chooses, mine took up residence and subsequently had a family.

Come on girls...get the Veet,razor,clippers out ( either that or go in for Fu Manchu type moustaches and beards) as for down below.....the Argy Bargy Bar staff go in for plaits with intertwined ribbons ( so they tell me.)😁

Thanks to an under active thyroid my eyebrows are now 2 neat arches that never need plucking or shaping. My underarm hair has become quite sparse, everything else seems much the same as before.

Gardenersdelight2 Sat 02-Jan-21 18:54:24

I know that feeling! It's the random sprouting ones on chin or brow.
Also said my OH hair is sliding downwards as quick as he looses it off his head the more hairy his shoulders and back are becoming !!😂

I have always had hairy big toes shock

Glad its not just me then Bluebellwould, I would love to have the thick bouncy hair my friend complains about.

My husband is the same Gardenersdelight I've resorted to using the dog's clippers grin

Yup
It’s a worry - where did my pubic hair go as it just disappears in
places
I have stubble on my lip !
Ok whilst I have my faculties but My mum who sadly passed away last month had a very hairy chin and it used to really upset her - in earlier years I remember her tweezing away by a window with magnifying mirro and now I know why !

Great post 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Shinamae Sun 03-Jan-21 09:46:14

Hairy big toes here as well, my doctor said it was a sign of good circulation!! 🤓

inishowen Sun 03-Jan-21 09:47:35

Wouldn't it be wonderful if all unwanted body hair could be relocated to the scalp!

Moggycuddler Sun 03-Jan-21 09:50:27

Hair on head definitely thinning. Underarm hair all but gone. Rarely need to shave legs any more. Down below hair a bit sparser and grey/white now. Thankfully no whiskers on face though (at least yet.)

Yep! The joys of getting old. If my hair thins much more I will be reduced to arranging the few sparse strands left like Rab C Nesbitt's comb over.

Coco51 Sun 03-Jan-21 09:53:38

I have - but then I am on steroids and immunosuppressant medication!

Cambia Sun 03-Jan-21 10:05:53

Get an Epilady! I am now in command of all things hairy in just ten minutes a week. Mine even gets rid of whiskers!

Teacheranne Sun 03-Jan-21 10:09:03

I was really worried when my hair down below started to thin out and disappear, I had no idea it was just due to my age! Luckily I’ve not yet got any facial hair but I keep a close eye out for it and am ready with my tweezers

That was a good laugh if it wasn’t all more or less describing yours truly. Hairs totally disappeared from legs and underarms which is great but I’ve never had so much hair detach itself from my head as this year while down below growth is rampant.
My daughter is supposed to warn me when chin hairs become over 5mm long but is now so used to them that she doesn’t notice and it’s left to the more reliable grandchildren to point them out. I had my thyroid removed getting on for 40 years ago and my eyebrows disappeared with it except for a centimetre long very dark thicket at the nose end. While I could see to do it I used to pencil the rest back in but I now choose my spectacles to cover, or at least distract from the absent 2cm.👵🏻
