All About Nipple Hair: Your Questions Answered

If you have noticed some noticeable hairs growing around your nipples, there is no cause for concern. In fact, having some hair growth surrounding the nipples is perfectly natural for both men and women.

Most of the human body is covered in hair follicles, and while some of it is very fine and barely noticeable, some coarse, dark hairs can also grow on areas such as the chin, upper lip, and around the nipples.

In this article, we will answer some of the most common questions and concerns about nipple hair and its removal.

1. Why do I have nipple hair?

Humans have evolved to have body hair for a variety of reasons, including skin protection against the sun and harsh weather elements, as well as thermoregulation.
In addition, several factors can determine the amount of body hair growing around the nipples, including hormonal fluctuations and genetics.


2. Does nipple hair growth change over time?

The amount of hair growing on our faces and bodies, as well as its visibility, can change throughout our lifetime. For instance, visible nipple hair often first appears during puberty. In addition, hair appearance can change due to hormonal fluctuations, such as pregnancy and menopause, when nipple hair often becomes more visible.

3. Should I be worried about my nipple hair?

Generally speaking, having some hair growth around the nipples is nothing to worry about. That being said, if you suddenly notice a lot of unwanted facial and body hair growth, it is best to consult your healthcare practitioner, as this can be a sign of hormonal imbalance due to a medical condition such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) or Cushing’s syndrome. In addition, some other medical conditions that can result in hormonal imbalances include tumours on the ovaries and on the adrenal and pituitary glands.

4. Should I use bleaching or depilatory creams on my nipple hair?

No, bleaching your nipple hair is not a great idea since the skin on and around the nipples is usually highly sensitive. Since bleaching and depilatory creams contain strong chemicals to dissolve the keratin hair structure, they can cause irritation and allergic reaction when applied to the breast area. Depilatory creams are less likely to cause skin irritation on other parts of the body, such as on the legs. However, it is not recommended to use it on the skin around the nipples.

5. Should I shave my nipple hair?

Shaving nipple hair is generally not recommended since the skin surrounding nipples is highly sensitive and shaving it can easily result in nicks and cuts. In addition, removing nipple hair by shaving can also lead to ingrown hairs or infection, which can be quite painful. Finally, shaving the hair growing around the nipples also increases the chances of blocked hair follicles, which can cause the formation of sebaceous cysts.

6. What is the best way to remove nipple hair?

When it comes to the removal of nipple hair, you have several options. While tweezing, waxing, and sugaring can do the trick, these methods can only provide temporary results, and the nipple hair will grow back within several weeks. In addition, while laser hair removal can provide hair growth reduction, it does not offer long-lasting results, and can cause hyperpigmentation of the skin.

Galvanic electrolysis is the only permanent method of hair removal approved by the FDA. Electrolysis hair removal is safe and highly effective, and can be used to permanently remove unwanted hair from sensitive areas such as the nipple. This technique targets each individual hair follicle and permanently gets rid of the stem cells responsible for new hair growth. Therefore, only galvanic electrolysis can ensure life-long results for nipple hair removal.

The Bottom Line

Generally speaking, having some nipple hair growth is nothing to be concerned about. However, if you have observed a noticeable increase in hair growth on areas such as the chest and face, it is best to consult your doctor to rule out any potential underlying medical conditions. If you want to permanently remove your nipple hair, galvanic electrolysis is the best way to go, as it provides life-long results so that you’ll never need to worry about unwanted nipple hair again.
