So this dark hair growing on my stomach got me thinking… bodybuilders, especially professional ones, like to remove all hair from their body. so do swimmers and other athletes.
Now with so much advancement and research nowadays, supplement companies and research institutes can find what triggers anything in the body, and how to change it. you’ve got supplements messing with all kinds of little chemical reactions going on in the body.
So is it not possible to find what exactly causes hair growth all over the body, and to stop it or slow it down or reverse it, without messing with hormones? maybe finding the last step for hair growth which is triggered by the hormones or something? I dunno. Just asking.
Would be a cool supplement: take the pills, lose the excess hair. better than waxing or other methods.
so , think its possible?
You’d probably go bald too as well as lose your eye lashes and eyebrows…I’ve always wondered why they can’t just come up with some spray or lotion that kills the hair cell but leaves your skin alone
Did anyone else start to grow more body hair when they started lifting? Even clean? I have never taken steroids or pheromones but when I started lifting I started to grow hair kind of everywhere.

hmm but it seems to me like they’re not too connected. cause some go bald while keeping their body hair. and facial hair is not necessarily connected with body hair. like in women, for example, they odnt grow hair in the same places. maybe theres a way to internally target different hair locations. or pretty much the whole body except the face and head. dunno

It is most likely due to producing more Testosterone.
If you want to lose the hair, increase your Estrogen. Think Soy;P
There is a tree that grows in Hawaii that will remove body hair if you eat it. Ranchers hate it because their horses can’t get enough and they end up bald.
Problem is that it doesn’t discriminate. No body hair means no eyelashes, eyebrows, nose hair, head hair; all of it.
Sadly, this is not biologically possible. All hair (body, head, facial, etc) is structurally and chemically similar. The various types are of a different end consistancy, but so far as chemical agents are concerned, they are the same.
The only chemical way of removing hair is to kill off rapid-growing cells. Hair follicles fall under this category. However, as previously stated, ALL hair counts. Thus the reasont that chemotherapy patients lose their hair. Cancer cells respond to the same treatment.
It might be possible in the future if somone can determine the threshold level for hair, and create a drug that targets cells of only that growth/composition range. Until then, shave, wax, laser, and electrolysis are your only options.
but it doesnt have to be something that kills the hair itself. it could be something that stops new hairs from growing. i dont know what exactly makes hairs grow, but if any part of that process could be disrupted. that way, people can shave the parts of the bodies where they dont want any more hair, and it wont grow back. as for rest of body, your hair will still be there.
and this kind of thing probably wouldnt last forever, it might have an effect for a month or two or something. i dunno.
interesting stuff about the horses and the hawaiian plant
