Fixing Shaved Sideburns?

I stupidly shaved my sideburns because I did not like they way they looked. I now have to shave them on a daily basis as they are back growing very stubbly and leaving a dark mark.

I am also having the problem with my really short bits which I cannot shave and I have used many hair gels to try and keep they pasted down, but they are not staying still. What else could I use to help keep these down as when I have my hair up in a ponytail they are very noticeable and it really gets me down.

You will just have to be patient and let them grow out. I would pull my hair back as little as possible.

If you are having problems with this there are a few things you can try.

Step 1
Plucking is one way to remove facial hair. Use a pair of tweezers and remove the small stubbles of hair from your face.

Step 2
Waxing is yet another method to remove the facial hair. You need to purchase a waxing kit for your face. There are different kits available. If you decide to wax the hair you need to know this might cause irritation to your skin.

Step 3
Threading is a technique used in the Middle Eastern and Asian countries. You will use a thin double cotton piece of thread. The thread is pulled super taut and rolled over the area you wish to remove the hair. When the thread passes over this area it pulls out the hair.

Step 4
Depilatory creams are yet another way to remove your facial hair. You apply the cream to the hair on your face and use a tissue to wipe the cream off. This removes the hair from your face.

Step 5
Laser hair removal is more permanent and you can receive this treatment at a laser hair removal salon.

Step 6
Electrolysis is the last way you can remove your facial hair. This is permanent and uses heat to destroy the hair follicles one at a time.

My husband did that once, he added hair dye to his to make them appear thicker as he waited for them to grow back.

After rereading your question it appears that you wish to keep your sideburns and that you are just looking for a way to "glue" the stubby hairs down until they grow back out. It does not seem that you are looking for ways to totally remove them.

Step 1
Totally removing your side burns means you are looking for a "permanent" solution and no matter how you do this, most of the time the hairs will grow back and the problem has to faced again.

Step 2
Since you said you "stupidly" shaved your sideburns, I take that to mean you wish to keep them but are having a problem with stubby hairs while the hairs grow back.

Step 3
This problem will last for several weeks/months so maybe it would be a good idea if you could talk with a professional to see if they can offer some advice about how to hold them down. (Do not let them talk you into removing them as that is their business talking.)

Step 4
My son has a "cow-lick" that bothers him a lot and the advice that was given him has helped but still goes afoul sometime.

Step 5
Suggestion: After showering while hair is still damp, cover the area with your gel (whatever you are using) and brush/flatten the hair in the direction you want it to go. Let it dry in this manner and hopefully (after a few tries) it will start to lay down better.

Maybe you could pay a visit to a beauty supply shop and ask about what they recommend to hold those little stubby hairs down until they grow.
They should eventually grow back to their normal color and softness.

Try using a hair remover like nair .It would take all the hair right off.

I tried using Nair but it made my skin irritated, and now the side burns are out of shape and clotted.
