Pesky Underarm Hair (Or is that Hare?)

Okay, this story is important. So, please, stop what you are doing. Sit up straight. And read. This story may change the way you view the rest of your day.

If you regularly forget to shave your underarms, a new product headed for drugstores in England could work well for you. A deodorant that promises to slow the growth of underarm hair will go on sale next month, London’s Daily Mail reported.

The deodorant Sure Dove Hair Minimizing, made by Unilever, which manufactures American-based products like Slimfast and Vaseline, comes in a roll-on and sprayform.

The company said women should notice a difference after four weeks of use, however, if they stop using the product, the hair will grow back.

The deodorant is not intended to replace shaving, but it will reduce skin irritation caused by ingrown hairs, the company claims. It will also make the hair less noticeable and easier to remove.

The deodorant should only be used in the underarm area, according to the report.

Now, ladies, I appreciate how important this is to you. (Since the article only addresses women, I will limit my comments to just you.) And, trust me, I see the value in the product—if it works, that is.

But, what I wish this company would work on is a roll-on or spray that WILL GROW hair on your head! Now, that would be a good investment! I’d even wait for four weeks for it to start working!

I’m thinking about starting a write-in campaign to Unilever for just such a product! Do I have any takers—other than Bill, of course?


  1. I'm looking for an ear-hair growth retardant! (I know, TMI)

  2. Yes...way too much...

    I have thought about using some of my ear-hair for a nice looking comb over though...

  3. You beat me to the punch Steve. However professional cyclists shave. But since I am not a professional I don't do that. TMI?

  4. Oh yeah your comment wasn't gross!

  5. Those visuals are burned in my brain and now I'm scarred for life...

  6. Will...if that scarred you for life, you've had a boring life! :)

  7. The comments on this are funnier than the article... just sayin'..

    Must confess though... Not sure I'll ever be able to drink a Slim Fast again now.

  8. No, not boring by any stretch, and I've seen some BAD comb-overs, but the image of an ear-hair-comb-over, OVERLOAD - OVERLOAD - OVERLOAD...sealing off compartment to prevent contamination....



Thank you for sharing your thoughts! I can't wait to read what you have written.
