It's easy to make your own sugar "wax". Mix 1 c sugar with the juice of one lemon and enough water to make it soupy. Boil slowly and carefully, stirring constantly, in a stainless pan until you see the faintest bit of caramel color. Take it off the heat immediately.

I always have a larger pan full of ice just in case I don't catch the sugar the second it begins to color--cool the outside of the sugaring pan with the ice to stop the cooking.

Once the sugar is cool enough, try a bit on your skin. It took me about three tries to get the perfect mixture, cooked exactly right.

Works great for "waxing" facial hair (I use it on my furry eyebrows) and legs.

I leave my pits furry--love the feeling. As for my twat, I keep it trimmed. As one ages, one's hair thins and turns (Yikes!) white down there. Startling, if you aren't expecting this post-menopausal change.

I hear that you can sugar yourself (or have your girlfriend do it for you), but I'm not into that amount of pain. Also, the child porn aspects of it freak me out.

Went ahead with the bikini wax today, which was much more painful than she led on. But I hear the first time is the most painful, so I am willing to try again in a few weeks.
I also got my underarms done, and that was a breeze. Although, she did more plucking than anything... shoot, I could do that myself! Anyway, now I know.

CH - I tried Nads once or twice. It wasn't bad. Worth a try I guess. Sugaring is supposed to help hair not to grow back after using it over a long period of time.

obelix, I've heard that laser hair remoal is a wonderful thing, I've not done it.

as for the whole leg, arm pit, snatch bit. I rarely shave my legs, I don't have to, arm pits, regularly, as for my cooch, I'e been doing it for ages now, I preger the look and feel of it. To each their own.

What about sugaring??

I think 1/4 inch is what they say for waxing. But I'm sure a quick google search would be more accurate than me.

sassy-I had horrible luck with the few electric razors I've used. They all seemed to yank more hairs than they cut. But that was a decade ago, they must have improved by now.

I was wondering what experiences people have had with laser hair removal. I've got blonde hair on my head, but everywhere else on my body, it's thick and black - including my neck, face, and stomach. I'm really not that vain, but it got to the point where I was embarrassed to go out in public without shaving my face. It took about a day for me to have a noticeable five-o-clock shadow. I tried electrolysis for a year and nothing happened. So now I've gone in for the laser zapping a few times and I love it! I only have to shave my face a few times a week.

Does anybody have a long-term result to report?

(off to check the archives to see if I'm being ignorant...)

I got my legs waxed a while ago and really liked it, so now I want to try the bikini! How long do I need to let the hair grow?

Hey guys...I've just about given up on shaving with shaving cream and a razer anymore. My skin on my legs is so sensitive that no matter what I do (i.e. unscented aveeno shaving cream, new razer blade), I still get really broken out. I tried waxing but to me, it's not worth it (not on the legs anyhow) because it is pricey for me to do and I still get stuble within a week and a half. Can anyone reccommend a good electric razer? I know it won't get as smooth a shave, but I think it will help my sensitive skin!

oh dude, that's a bad wax. i wouldn't see her again.

try arnica, a homeopathic remedy for trauma and bruising, you can get topical and oral and take them both if you like. note: not to be used on broken skin, just for bruising.

well, i already said i don't shave my undersarms because i have like five hairs under each. my legs i shave rarely. i don't have hardly any hair there either. i did just order an exfoliating scrub and i think i might use when i shave my legs on the rare occasion so that i can get a closer shave. i only trim my lady parts because my hair grows so long that i snag it on my panties when i'm out and about and that freaking sucks. i have a trimmer that i use for that. it's easy.

i don't shave under my arms, i like having two extra kitties (heh), visually anyhow. for boys that like it it's a ridiculously powerful turn on. once a friend of my bf who'd had a few (the friend, not the bf. though come to think of it the bf had had a few too or he might not have been so laid back about this) grabbed my arm and yanked it straight up proclaiming Very Loudly how incredibly sexy he thought my unshaven underarms were. seriously, he kept yanking my arm up over my head to get another look with such lasciviousness on his face. disturbing but also very gratifying as the bf wasn't exactly a fan. i was trimming it too, it wasn't even all that bushy!

my mom doesn't shave hers either so no freaking that old hippy out with my bewhiskered state!

the bush. i have a small daughter, no way do i want my koochie looking like a little girl's does! sick sick sick.
i generally trim though lately with two children underfoot, many holiday, school, crafty and housey activities to do and no one to see it anyhow, i admit that i have let it go. there goes that theory that i go through the trouble of keeping myself presentable just for me. even i don't believe that anymore. it's never been 'for me'. ha.

the legs, oy. the ingrown hairs i am plagued with. i just try to avoid shaving, waxing, or even looking at that area altogether. i have a collection of very funky knee socks that go clashingly well with everything. i break out the trimmers for swimming though. so long as i don't actually shave it off or pull it out the ingrowns stay to a minimum.

i don't shave my armpits either. i do have hair, though. my mom is always mortified when i show her (which i love to do from time to time just to shake things up). lol

actually, i rarely shave at all. i don't normally trim, either. (is that tmi?)

i don't know, part of it is laziness and the fact that no one sees my hair, anyway. but mostly i just like kickin' it free-style. tongue.gif the hair on my legs is really sparse anyway, so you can't really tell they're hairy unless you're trying to look. so i just don't bother. *shrug*

i've also always dealt with billions of ingrown hairs for as long as i can remember, so it just doesn't seem worth it to aggravate the situation.

it does feel good when i'm bare. that is, until it starts to grow back as well. i guess you could just keep up with it regularly and never have the irritation.

i've always wanted to get my legs waxed. maybe i'll try that this summer before i go on vacation.

maybe too much information here but i don't shave my arm pits. i don't have a lot of hair there at all. seriously, it's like less then 10 hairs under each arm. it's very light. i always ask mr. pug if it bothers him and he says no. plus, because i'm heavy, having to shave my underarms always results in little cuts or razor burn. that sucks when you have to put deodorant on. i hate that.

I am a fan of the trimmed not shaven thing too. I dont get very much fuzz down there anyway, so i just keep it neatly trimmed. I have tried shaving, but i always end up with pesky lil ingrowns. Not fun. And yes, I look like a 10 yr old when its bare -- but it feels good that way. That is until it starts growing back. YIKES. Itch city.

me too, i used to do my own bikini waxes but my epilator (which i don't use much) has a nifty shaver attachment that i like. I shave but don't go bald if you see what i mean, i leave a few mm. less hassle than waxing. now i'll just wax for swimsuit-wearing. still wax my legs as it is overall the quickest (half an hour once every two/three weeks rather than having to remember every couple of days) and less scratchy regrowth. i hate wasting time on grooming so i'll always go for things that last (am also a fan of fake tan in small doses and eyelash dye - less to worry about in the mornings when i just want to sleep wink.gif

I'm a fan of the close trim. I don't really like the whole runway thing either or completely shaved. I just have mine neat and closely trimed. I find that when I used to shave completely it felt like I was a little girl and that I got irritated easily. So one vote for the trimed but not shaven.

reply to sexysandee:

I don't shave at all. If there is a special request, I might wax a bit, like a french wax. I never go bare though, because it makes me look 12 (really), and that is too creepy for words.

*bump* for octi

I don't know anything about the Seiko (but I would be interested in hearing reviews). BUT I can highly recommend Barcs Bump Down aftershave lotion. It works wonders, both on the boy's face and my more personal bits.

Okay...question for you guys. I'm about to get my legs waxed again before the big wedding day and it's been over a month since I first got them waxed, but I'm worried the hair isn't long enough to wax. It's grown back a lot thinner and it's still pretty short...some spots are still bare from the first wax. Is that normal? I know waxing makes your hair thinner, but will I still be able to get waxed again next week? Ahhh...



The rule of thumb so to speak is that it should be about the length of a grain of rice to be waxable.
