The body hair system is called the pilosebaceous system. The sebaceous glands are responsible for hair growth. Terminal hairs grow in deep roots of the skin and have a coarse texture. Usually hair that grows at unwanted places is terminal hair. It starts with a pea size fuzzy hair growth and the coarseness and size increases with the growth of the hair. Terminal hair grows from scalp, eyebrows, underarms, pubic area, ear etc.
THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO GET RID OF TERMINAL HAIR:
1. SOFTEN YOUR TERMINAL HAIR BEFORE REMOVAL:
Always make sure you soften the hair by either dipping them water or using steam. The softer the hair, the easier it gets to remove them.
Waxing is the best way to remove unwanted hair and keep them from growing for a long time. This is because waxing removes hair from the roots. This takes some time from regrowth. Waxing is a painful process.
3. AVOID HAIR REMOVAL CREAMS:
Hair removal creams are not the best method for getting rid of terminal hair. If you are applying them in delicate areas then the chemicals may react. The technique that the hair removal creams use is to burn using chemicals the hair on the surface of the skin. This ends up burning and blackening the skin making it ugly.
4. AVOID PLUCKING:
If you are trying to remove hair by plucking then that may not be a good option. Plucking hair around the eye area may weaken the eyesight. Threading is a better option.
5. DO NOT USE RAZORS TO REMOVE TERMINAL HAIR:

6. LASER HAIR REMOVAL:
Laser hair removal is a permanent way to avoid terminal hair growth. It does not allow any kind of ingrowth or leave marks. However they may not always be successful with people having hormonal imbalances or light hair. The process may be painful and expensive requiring a lot of commitment.
7. FACIAL HAIR:
Facial hair removal is the most desired of all the hair removal areas. The best method is to prepare a mild homemade facial wax using sugar, honey and lemon. Waxing moisturizes the skin but it may cause irritations and itching. Once waxing is done, it requires to be done again. Waxing the facial skin may also loosen the facial skin and make it sulky.
