Nipple hair. It’s the nemesis of many a woman, and another entry on the long list of body hair woes.
Human beings are mammals, and you don’t qualify as a mammal without a certain necessary amount of body hair. It’s just how we’re built.
That said, there are some kinds of body hair that just make us feel icky. Why couldn’t we just have hair on our heads, and skip unwanted chin hair entirely?
We all have some unwanted body hair, though you may have more than others depending on a few situations. Genetics play a major role in how much body hair you grow, while certain hormone imbalances could also mean you grow a little bit more hair than average.
Still, at the end of the day, it’s all normal.
Nipple hair, like all other body hair, is just part of the messy, beautiful spectrum of being a human. That said, there’s no reason you can’t pluck the heck out of it if you really want to.
