Lattice or fluffy hair is one of the problems that many women suffer from. This hair, although sometimes it is light and unnoticeable, and sometimes it is thick and long and its color is black, but in both cases it disturbs the woman greatly and worries her greatly. The woman suffers in removing this fluffy hair, which in many cases is very light. But it is cumbersome to remove, and you struggle to find an optimal way to remove it, as it is similar to the hair that spreads on the bodies of newborn children, and in adults it spreads to many parts of the body, and is more common in women than in men.

This type of hypertrichosis is widespread in all parts of the body.

- It may be acquired; Where hair spreads in separate areas of the skin except for the pubic hair and the armpits.
There is a big difference between lacy hair and what is known
as hirsutism: hirsutism is classified by some as (wit hair), and this is certainly a wrong classification; As hirsutism is the result of an increase in the growth of hair sensitive to the hormone androgen, hirsutism often shows hair in the chest and back in women with hirsutism.
And sometimes hirsutism in women is associated with an excess of male hormones, which causes the appearance of acne and irregular menstruation, and the woman's body takes a male-oriented shape, as well as leads to the depth of their voice.
The phenomenon of hirsutism is treated with drugs that reduce the proportion of hormones.
Forms of hypertrichosis:
Hypertrichosis is the result of a reverse mutation in chromosome 8q.

2- Permanent total hypertrichosis:
This type of hypertrichosis is the result of changes in the chromosome that affect the transcription of genes.

This type of hypertrichosis is also caused by the use of topical minoxidil.
4- Hypertrichosis may be the result of a defect in one of the hair life stages:
where hair is exposed to three phases:
The first phase:
is the anagen phase and this phase in which hair grows in parts of the body.
The second phase:
is the catagen phase, which is the phase in which the hair follicles in the body die.
The third phase:
It is the telogen phase in which hair falls out in the body and the problem appears when the anagen phase increases from the normal level, the area in which this mutation occurs leads to increased hair growth in it.
