Waxing lyrical

Waxing, shaving, Epilady, bleaching, 'natural' look?

What's your thoughts on hair removal?
For me it's waxing. if at all possible.
But the mess when I have tried this at home is NOT worth it! It's a salon visit for these little legs!

I shave my legs, underarms and....

I have always bleached my mustache but lately, I have been thinking of waxing it or using a hair removal creme.

Does anyone do this? Is it true that is grows back darker? I have dark brown hair so if I don't stay on top of it, it is noticable.

I shave my legs and underarms. However, I struggle with my facial hairs. They just pop up out of nowhere! I usually pluck them with tweezers. Sometimes, I wax, but that usually results in at least one sore on my face which looks worse than the facial hair! I would love to try that new product called Tweeze-eze or something like that. I am waiting for it to apprear at Walgreens.

Facial hairs (most hairs) are often curled at the root so waxing will irritate the follicle by usually breaking off rather than the complete removal that tweezers allow. Brown spots are actually fine hairs and skin that are accumulating. They can be removed by diligently tweezing hair over time until all gone.
I can't wax anywhere due to this problem; too many hairs going in too many directions. Somethings going to break and flare up.

That explains why the hairs above my lip break out so bad. They are way too fine to tweeze though. I don't know what else to do.

There are special slant tip tweezers with a grip for fine hairs. Be careful to let them uncurl and come out the way they grow instead of simply yanking out. I believe it is Revlon that makes them.
My menopausal face hair is a lot of work.

Thanks for the information. I have one of those tweezers and I love it because it is the only one that will pull anything. I am not menopausal, but it seems that the hair on my face has gotten worse. I laugh because my DD, who is in her 20s, complains that she is getting facial hair. lol

Sad face Phooey on hair removal

Summer is a drag for this dark-haired Italian-Irish girl. I have to shave my legs every day if I want to wear anything else than long pants. And with age, I am getting more and more of those annoying chin hairs I saw on my grandma when I was a little girl. Tweeze, tweeze, tweeze all the time!

Just had to vent a little.....

Well as winter is now here for us my legs dont' get done as often due to long pants but ... I went to curves the other day and was sitting on a machine only to look down on my legs, (as I always wear shorts) and was frankly quite horrified at how bad they were!

In summer I probably do them every 3 days as I do with my underarms, both shaving.

I pull a acouple of stray wirey hairs out of my moe and chin ...... don't tell the kids though, I'd never hear the end of it!
