Not so much on ME!!!!
The Uni-brow was plucked away at age 13....right after the shaving of hairy legs and arm pits.
Thank God for female hormones that prevented the inheritance of Dad's hairy chest. More there than on his head. Worked fine for my brother...he's a guy.
What genetic goof up causes hair follicles to sprout in all the wrong places?
Over the years my mother bobbed, permed, spit, braided, gooed, and cried over her first borns pitiful Pittman hair. I was, after all, my fathers fault.
The second born was our fathers fault, too. He was as bald as I was hairy. When he reached his teens, his Uni-Brow was fully furrowed and his receding hair line was right in style with 77 Sunset Strip Star Kookie...aka Ed Byrnes. Again...worked for him...not so much for me.
What did work for me was tweezers, rat tail combs, Aqua Net, Dippity Do, Lilt Perms, upperlip depilatory and the 1960's BIG HAIR-DO! Who would have guessed that purposefully tangling, packing and frizzing one's hair would be the answer to looking like a Brunette Dolly Parton...from the neck up...paternal genes, again! You won't be surprised to learn that all that 'Hair Care' eventually led me to a 'Hair Calling'. I'll fill you in on the Letter 'O's post....'Operator'~It's A Comb Not a Wand!

While her 'Maternal Folicles' grew and grew, mine didn't. I had Long Length Folicle Failure'. One hundred brush strokes a day will make your hair shine and stimulate growth. Ha! That's bunk! I lost chunks!
I could go on and on with quips about extra body and volume shampoos that didn't work on my hair or my body. Even though #3 child didn't need it for her hair, she used it anyway. She got the extra body all right...on her thighs.
She didn't heed the Do Not Use in the Shower warning! I suggested she use Dawn on her long locks, thighs and legs. It's label clearly states "dissolves fat that is otherwise difficult to remove." She threw her hairless brush at me. I ducked...brother didn't...funny thing...after all those hundred strokes it never shined my hair like it shined his eye.
