How To Remove Nipple Hair Permanently At Home Using Natural Methods

We have accepted the fact that body hair is a completely normal phenomenon, but nipple hair still makes us uncomfortable. Nipple hair is an issue women are embarrassed to talk about. It is unusual to have nipple hair but it is not uncommon. While we are worried about them, we never talk about it. Well, you shouldn't feel that way. But, we can imagine why would you. Don't worry, it can be treated.

The very first solution that we go for when we spot a few nipple hairs here and there is tweezing. But for how long? Gradually, you see more nipple hair coming out. If tweezing is not making the cut for you, we have some natural, safe and painless ways to remove nipple hair permanently at home.

Before we move on to that, let's understand why do women have nipple hair?

Reasons For Nipple Hair

Blame your hormones. There are some landmarks in women's life aka pregnancy and menopause that can send your hormones haywire and hence you see nipple hair. Another reason is the increase in male hormones called testosterone which can lead to excessive body hair. Oily skin, absent menstrual periods and hair loss are the tell-all signs of increased testosterone. And then there is PCOS that disbalances your hormones and causes many health issues, including hair growth in unwanted places like around the nipple and chin.

If you see increased hair growth at an alarming rate, it is important to consult a doctor. For the troubling nipple hairs that aren't a cause of concern, refer to the following remedies.
