Yeah, I burned myself. I'm too scared to try your vaseline trick, NCC

My legs feel soooo smooth after shaving last night. I was really pleased. I can't shave my pits. Since I stopped my pits aren't as discolored as they were when I shaved.

Empress, I tried waxing myself in the past with muslin strips and some wax I got from Sally. It was a disaster...after that I decided to leave the waxing to the pros. Maybe I should have tried the wax you use instead.

I need to figure something out. Most of my pit hair was removed with the Nair, but I still have a patch of hair under each arm. Not a good look.

take some motrin an hour ahead of time. i took four the other night....but i was also have menstrual cramps but it REALLY helped i swear they helped. i barely flinched while waxing

if you're waxing the love below, sit on a plastic bag so you dont get drippies all over, and use a mirror.

legs and armpits i can wax 1-2-3. wax goes on in direction of growth, and comes off in opposite direction.

Ok yall are brave I could never wax myself, hell sometimes I want to beat the woman who is waxing me lol.

Then I tried my girlfriends Braun Silk Epil for real it was like slow torture...on the up side it did give a nice shave but man it hurt like a bit@# maybe I am just a baby.

Anyway I shave and my ex actually taught me I was doing it wrong. He gave me some tips and I have to say I no longer get ingrown hairs and I stopped destroying my skin. So here are the the three things I learned number one women's razor suck I use mens, the Mach3 is awesome and thy always have a sale and a coupon (about $9 for 5). Second shave the way the hair grows so for most ladies you should shave your legs going down not up. Third use a thin layer of oil and then a good shaving cream. When you apply a thin layer of oil (I use coconut) it makes the razor slide better thus no bruising the skin and get a good quality shaving cream again men's stuff is superior to women I actually use this stuff from crab tree and evelyn, Nomad I think ($14). It is a really good shave and the best thing is there is no pain.

ive tried shaving in the direction the hair grows...but it's never a clean shave for me. hell i refuse to shave anymore. i just wax everything myself plus it lasts for a month or longer.
