Anyone have luck with a hair growth inhibitor? Especially my fellow gentledudes who could be mistaken for sasquatch after skipping a day of shaving.

I've heard of things like Nair that make it fall out... if that was a one-and-done solution I'd be all for it, but I'm hoping for something that slows or stops it from growing.

I go clean shaven, but I get the '5 o-clock' shadow the second I put the razor down, and look homeless if I skip a day or two.

Tried growing a beard - looked alright, but the amount of product and effort I shoved into that thing was ridiculous. And it was maddeningly itchy the entire time (lasted about a year putting up with it).

I've spent the last couple years with the conclusion that hair is just annoying, and I want it gone with as little effort and expense as possible.

Kinda partial to keeping the eyebrows and lashes cuz they keep shit out of my eyes, but honestly if losing them is the cost of getting rid of the rest of it, I'd call that a fair trade.

Some initial searching shows there is a market for hair growth suppressants, but chewbaccoids like myself might not be among the target audience lol.

Anyone got a recommendation or cautionary tale?

  • Just hope you don't end up with an enlarged prostate. Finasteride causes excessive hair growth.

    • This isn't really true from what I know. Finasteride only prevents hair loss, and really only scalp here from my understanding.

      • Well, I'll let you know in a few more months. I started taking it about 1.5 months ago. The literature with the medication used the term "excessive hair growth" exactly.
