What you are about to read will probably sound a bit exaggerated and a bit unrealistic, but I assure you… this is real life. Also, a little word of warning, this is going to be a TMI post – we’re going to be talking about hair. Body hair, to be exact. You’ve been warned. So… Growing up, I always had an issue with body hair. Coming…
