I have many ongoing chin hairs possibly from pcos. I pluck

Customer Question

Hi- I have many ongoing chin hairs possibly from pcos. I pluck them and sometimes wax. I had one hair recently that I tried to tweeze, and it become longer as I pulled, and although a few pieces snipped off, I couldnt seem to feel a root and it slipped from the tweezers and retracted back up into my skin. Now I cant even see the end of it, no small stubble or anything , the hair just disappeared. Can hair retract like that ? And should I be concerned it is going to become ingrown way under my skin. I have no soreness or red areas but I cannot find the pore where it came from. It literally disappeared. Was very creepy.
