We all have barely noticeable upper lip hair at the very least. However, some women have thicker and more abundant hair growth, which is definitely a pain in the bum to deal with. “Female mustache” can be caused by different factors, including genetic, ethnic, or hormonal. Sometimes, though, the hair growth can be enhanced due to some diseases, including congenital adrenal hyperplasia, Cushing's syndrome, or polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
