EMBRACE YOUR HAIRINESS!!!
« on: March 20, 2018, 08:52:40 am »
As we all now, T causes hair to sprout (and some to fall to make it even I guess... :P) - fun thread to celebrate (or agonize over) the hair growth!

What are your thoughts on these:

(Do you like the amount of hair you've gotten? You want more or less? Color? Too scarce? Thicker than it used to be? You like it? Hate it? Want it? Need it? Were you looking forward to it? Did T smash your dreams or deliver?)

1) Top (means head)
2) Facial hair (got it already?)
3) Arms?
4) Back hair? (I wonder if anyone is fan of these... ::))
5) Legs? (shave it? love it?)
6) Stomach/chest? (sexy or under the razor)
7) Butt crack hair... (squirrel between your buttocks?) 

So... did you develop into a bear or gorilla? Or stayed hairless?

And if you are pre-hair sprout feel free to comment still and give your idea of an ideal body! (As long as you're allowed to fantasize before T offers you a reality check.)

I'm very much pre-T but I do have a clear idea of what I'd like my body to look like (and not look like!):

1) Top (means head)
I so don't wanna get bald!!!

2) Facial hair (got it already?)
Never been fan of full beards and thought I'd always shave anyway so not having facial hair didn't use to be an issue. Now I want to grow some so it bothers me I don't have it. This one I'm very much looking forward to!
 
3) Arms?
n/a, meaning don't have an opinion really! I'm used to having no visible hair on my arms so having that might seem strange. I'm not a fan of bushy arms so I wouldn't like to become a gorilla though. Other than that, I'm fine with it.

4) Back hair? (I wonder if anyone is fan of these... ::))
No, no, nooooo! If I had that, I think I'd grab the razor for sure! Though not so sure how you're supposed to shave your own back...? Might need to visit some parlor then... THAT I wouldn't want.

5) Legs? (shave it? love it?)
I don't have any visible hair on my legs either. If I were a woman, I would be very happy with the fact, I think. I'm used to that too so recently been thinking a lot about how I'll feel like when I go from none to ape. But again, no opinion on that really. Arms & legs have never been an issue. Isn't an issue I don't have any - don't think having it will be either. Sometimes I think I'm so excited for the prospect of starting T that I will jump from joy for every leg hair I get!

6) Stomach/chest? (sexy or under the razor)

I've always wanted a trail of hair below the navel so that I'm looking forward to very much!!! On the contrary I never wanted chest hair on the pecs xD. Yeah, I'm demanding. Bushy chest - again not a fan of! Might not bother me enough to grab the razor though... depending on how much I'll get.

7) Butt crack hair... (squirrel between your buttocks?)

Cough. No comment. So not looking forward to this!!! Though might just get used to it little by little and then not even notice. I heard gay guys shave it off. Razoring your butt crack sounds uncomfortable to me, no offence!

Summary:

I'm mostly looking forward to the facial hair & the least the hair loss on top!
As for arms & legs & general hairiness I don't have an opinion on. Doesn't bother me either way.
BUT I'm so used to not having any visible hair anywhere (like I do have body hair but it's so light you can only see it against the light!) and embraced it so suddenly sprouting it everywhere might feel strange and require some getting used to! Just bcos I've accepted the fact I'm the hairless guy/oddity then - and kinda grown to like it that way! It might feel strange - or then I'm just so excited for all the T changes in my body, it's like I finally started the right puberty and stop looking like a child and will embrace and like every change!

1) Top (means head)

Developed the male pattern on the forehead pretty fast. Hair strands are less thick which makes the hair feel softer. Don't seem to be going bald (touch wood)

Quote
2) Facial hair (got it already?)

Most of it, yeah. Some people just don't develop it for ages, if at all, I guess. I don't know how much will be there in the final result. It's a slightly dark blondish color, which is good since it at least stands out a bit.

Quote
3) Arms?

Yeah. Again it's like blond in the light but also a bit darker than that, so it doesn't stand out a mile but it's not exactly invisible either. The male terminal arm hair does make a difference to how your arms "look" to yourself and how masculine they look.

Quote
4) Back hair? (I wonder if anyone is fan of these... ::))

No, thank god.

Quote
5) Legs? (shave it? love it?)

Don't shave it, I'm ok with it. It's slightly darker than elsewhere on the body for some reason.

Quote
6) Stomach/chest? (sexy or under the razor)

Shaved for the surgery to keep everything a bit cleaner, normally I leave it alone. Got the trail and a bit on the stomach, little bit on the chest, not that much.

Quote
7) Butt crack hair... (squirrel between your buttocks?)

Not a full grown squirrel up there, but, y'know... it happens. I know a guy who loves explaining to all his use of hair removal cream on his butt(crack) but honestly... you'll be doing it every couple of days if you're attempting to keep that area 100% hair-free.     

Quote
So... did you develop into a bear or gorilla? Or stayed hairless?

More hairy than before, but not excessively so. At least not yet. Chest hair seems the last thing to come in, besides the facial hair. . .

Quote
And if you are pre-hair sprout feel free to comment still and give your idea of an ideal body! (As long as you're allowed to fantasize before T offers you a reality check.)

I'm not a huge fan of body hair, but having enough to feel basically manly as opposed to boyish is definitely a plus. Makes you feel normal. That's good.

Yeah, I don't know how many guys embrace their body hair. I'm always doing waxing on the three I live with. They seem to think chest hair obscures their muscle " definition ". Yet none would even consider shaving the squirrels under their arms. Tristan has the butt crack wool. I offered to wax it for him but he looked at me like I was insane and told me that would never happen. Lol

If I ever get any back hair that's coming right off with wax.

Haha, what parts do they wax then? I shave none and never have, not even my armpits lol. (okay I maybe shaved them when I was like 12 but that's it) But like I said I'm hairless to begin with so... ;D!

They want their chests and stomach waxed. None of them have back hair thank god. My dad and Tristan don't bother with their leg hair. Tyler buzzes his leg hair with clippers. He had no desire for me to wax them. Lol.

Haha, yeah it's cool I have none atm. In a way. Still not sure what I'll feel like if/when I get lots of leg hair... But that trail on my stomach I always wanted.

I saw a guy like that at Walmart,  he was wearing a tank top and you could have combed the hair across the top of his back and on his shoulders. Ewww!😖😵

My older brother is much hairier than I ever was. And I completed full male puberty. But I guess we got different genes.

Thankfully I never developed facial or body hair. But I do remember how proud Tyler was when he got facial and body hair. He went shirtless all summer when he got that trail of hair down his stomach. Eww.

i was already pretty hairy pre-t so any new hair growth i saw had to be places i didn't have any (rare) or places there was very little (also rare). the most i've seen hair was my chest got a lot more hair, my back got hair (ugh, not too bad but i make sure it's gone..it's gross) and obviously my facial hair, which i love. the only things i maintain are my facial hair and my back. the other stuff, i don't care. besides that, my hair on the top of my head got thinner and my hairline receded to a masculine shape. i'm not going bald thankfully but i definitely worry about it.

I’m a bit hairier than I was pre-t, but not too much yet.

The hair on my head hasn’t changed much. There isn’t a history of male pattern baldness on either side of my family, so hopefully that isn’t something I need to worry about.

The facial hair is starting to come in. Right now it’s mostly peach fuzz, except it’s getting darker and more noticeable on my chin.

My arms have always been hairy. No change there.

When I was pre-t I never shaved my legs in the winter. My legs look exactly like they did then. Maybe slightly thicker. Though my thighs have become pretty hairy, where they weren’t hairy at all before. The thighs are probably the biggest change I’ve noticed so far, other than the facial hair.

I have some hair on my lower stomach, but not much at the moment. I just noticed that some chest hair is coming in, too.

Luckily no back hair.

1) Top (means head)
- Got a more male hairline, which I really like. Used to be dysphoric about my previous, female hairline. No signs of male pattern baldness yet. I don't have much of that in my genes. I don't want to lose my hair. I dye it black and keep it long. I trim it myself, haven't been to hairdressers in forever.

2) Facial hair (got it already?)
- Yeah and quite a lot of it! It's generally quite thick and full. I prefer stylish and neatly trimmed beards over the wilder variety though. I trim mine myself as well, and also dye that black to match my head hair. I've got good genes for facial hair, so it didn't surprise me that I got quite a lot of it. But I'm grateful regardless.

3) Arms?
- I didn't get much arm hair, just slightly thicker/darker, and it did creep up on my hands a bit as well. I have finger hairs too, but those I got long before starting T. I wish I had hairier arms and hands, but it's not a big deal.

4) Back hair? (I wonder if anyone is fan of these... ::))
- I'm mildly a fan of it, actually! But only on guys that are very hairy in other places/generally as well. Then I think it goes with the rest and looks kind of harmonic. I'm neither turned on or off by it though, but I find some aesthetic beauty in it somehow. That goes for body hair in general though, and it just includes back hair. I, however, only get a very rare few random strands of darker/thicker hair on my back. It desn't really show, but sometimes I remove them cause I think it looks weird when it's that very scarce and random.

5) Legs? (shave it? love it?)
- I'd say my legs are moderately hairy for a guy, and lighter brown than the rest of my hairs. It's itchy though, cause for some reason my leg hair makes the skin there very dry and flaky. I like the look of my leg hair, even though the feel of it is a bit of a bother. Shaving them would make me dysphoric cause I have very feminine-looking legs shape wise, so I don't. I just bathe in moisturisers and try to avoid extra itchy fabrics for pants. And scratch, scratch, scratch! xD

6) Stomach/chest? (sexy or under the razor)
- I've got a carpet of hair on my stomach. It started as just a happy trail, but didn't stop there. It connects with my chest hair but I have less of that. I keep getting more chest hair though, and I think soon that will meet my beard xD I really like it though, feels super manly and validating somehow. I want more of it, and I'd never shave it! I used to hate chest hair before I got it myself, then I made a complete 180 turn with that.

7) Butt crack hair... (squirrel between your buttocks?)
- Yeah, well that's a bit of a nuissance, but usually doesn't bother me too much. I don't have an extreme amount of hair there, but definitely more than I used to, pre-T. I tend to get insecure about it in sexual situations sometimes though. Cause I like anal and not every guy likes getting up close and cosy with a hairy butt crack... And trimming it is difficult to reach for me, cause I'm not a very flexible guy, and that's a bit too acrobatic for me. Sometimes I go at it with hair removal cream, but shaving it would be a painful disaster for me. So usually, I just try to ignore its existence.

I'd say I'm a bit of a halfway bear, hair amount wise. There are definitely guys that are a lot hairier than me, and also those that are a lot less hairy. I definitely like being hairy, it makes me feel more confident about how I look in general, and feel more manly. I think it might take some focus away from how curvy my body is too, or maybe that's just wishful thinking. Most of my body hair turned out in various shades of brown, from medium dark to almost black, depending on the area. Legs and arms are lightest, stomach is darkest.

The only places I shave/trim to some degree or another are pubes and face/head. I let my armpits be as well. I used to shave them in the past, but it stung a lot especially with deodorant and made my already excessive sweating way worse. So, not worth it for me. Also I've never liked the look of them shaved.
