Man dubbed 'Mr Teddybear' has been described as a real life werewolf

Man dubbed 'Mr Teddybear' has been described as a real life werewolf

A man dubbed 'Mr Teddybear' has hair so thick, he's been likened to a real-life werewolf.

And he's fully embracing every part of it, doing away with waxing, laser hair removal and instead, letting his hair grow.

Still, there are some drawbacks, as the lad explained: "Humidity is not your friend" especially when his 'thicker winter coat' comes in each year.

Despite his current confidence, it's not always been an easy ride for Mr Teddybear.

The lad started growing a healthy amount of hair at 13 and since then, it's never stopped.

As he grew older, and furrier, he felt ashamed of his hair, with previous partners even shaming him for it.

But, after working hard to accept himself, Mr Teddybear has done away with exhausting hair removal: "I used to wax my body hair and get it all lasered off years ago when I was ashamed of it.

"But, thankfully, that never worked. I remember when I would shave it off, within three hours it was already growing back.

"Sadly, in the past, I have had exes who would shame me for my body hair, or passive-aggressively make me shave it. But never again. You either accept me as a werewolf, or you can go elsewhere."

And it's safe to say he's been well and truly accepted as a werewolf, with floods of fans following the lad on social media, enjoying his grooming updates and hair care tips.

Still, people have strange reactions, including some wanting to pet Mr Teddybear.

"I’m used to people's reactions at this point, sadly they're still shocked," he explained.

"When I walk in a room and people see me wearing a tank top which I'm not ashamed of, I will see someone point and say something about how I look.

"Most often, it just results in strangers asking if they can pet me like I'm an emotional support dog."

We're just going to make a quick PSA: please don't ever pet a stranger like they're a dog.

Still, despite the strong reactions, Mr Teddybear takes it all in his stride, he's even started to make his own hair-care products.

"I usually just make my own products. Most beard oils you buy in stores are so cheaply made and actually dry out your fur. I like to make sure mine is moisturised, and well scented

"I shampoo and deep condition it twice a week. And after the show, I will add in Beard oil to my body hair, so it softens it even more and adds an incredibly nice scent.

"And once every two months, I will use Relaxer in it, to help straighten the hair, straightened body hair is a great way to show off muscle definition."

You know what, more power to the lad!
