Whether we like it or not, we all have body hair. It’s very normal and should not make you worry, even if you’re not a big fan. However, if its locations and texture have changed, it might be an indication of a health issue and this article will tell you why.

Bright Side found what could be causing changes in body hair growth and when you may need to visit a specialist.

Let’s define which types of body hair we may have.

Vellus hair is that tiny, very thin hair that basically covers the entire body, it’s so fine that you barely notice it.
Terminal hair is much longer, stronger, thicker, and normally much darker than the vellus hair and we start getting it during puberty. This is the type of hair that starts developing when our body goes through serious hormonal changes, and this is what you need to keep an eye on.
