Question About Pubic Hair Waxing/removal?

1. CREAMS there are side effects and people violate those warnings: Skin damage, odor, more hair growth, uneven skin & hair growth, allergic reaction. Keratin is the main protein that forms a hair strand. The result is the hair is wiped away with gentle friction. There are several chemicals based on the strength, color and coarseness of the hair. Before applying the cream, the skin type is also considered. Example from a VEET user: ."I used Veet to wax off my moustache which wasn't anything tragic,(STUPID ME) around 12 hours ago.....And for the first time I've got this reaaally bad skin irritation, I'm as red as a pepper for Gd's sake!" One girl put the cream on her nipples: "I just tried using nair for the first time and I tried putting it on my nipples because I am dumb and didnt read the directions. (and yes, I have hairy nipples. please dont make fun of me because it bothers me already). now my nipples are REALLY burning along with the rest of my skin." "I've waxed my upper lip by myself in the morning using a veet strip and peeled 3 large spots of skin and its really red and it burns !? help me plz i have skool after 2 days ! i waited 7 hours but nothing happeened ?" This may not be a good option for you if you have sensitive skin. If your skin develops severe irritation afterwards, go see a doctor!

2. Razors using SKINTIMATE: This is my favorite, takes seconds and you're done! I've chosen the pink handle 12 in a package. Pamela Anderson's favorite, also.
For females, NEVER use shaving for your facials or your arms. FOR MEN: never shave your chest. My BIL did that in college, now he's as hairy like a baboon! To prevent hair growing from your legs, wear socks always. DH does, and I'm jealous, he is hair-free!

3. IPL (intense pulsed light) targets folicles, destroying hair without damaging surrounding tissue. Hair begins to grow back finer until the follicle becomes dormant.

Price varies per area, approx. $150 per upper lip session; six appointments are often required. If you're natural hair color & skin tone are similar, you may need more sessions.

The experience isn't the most pleasant, but it honestly hurts less than waxing. Dark hair began to grow back slower, finer & lighter.

It may take multiple sessions - 6 or more - to achieve the desired results. If you are prone to melasma, let your derm know. Also, expect some post procedure redness.

6. Waxing warrants caution: home waxing kits come in both cold and hot wax varieties ? cold kits may not work as well but are certainly safer to use in the genital region. If you?re going to a salon, choose a professional location that makes safety a priority.

THREE MOST COMMON MYTHS about pubic hair removal:

1. The rate of hair regrowth will not change because of hair removal.

2. Hair coverage will not change in density; your body has a set number of hair follicles.

3. Ingrown hairs are common but not impossible to avoid; everyone has different susceptibility to ingrown hairs.

From a public health standpoint, pubic hair doesn?t have any advantages, but the negative health effects associated with hair removal processes are of some concern. And despite recent attacks against hair removal, keeping pubic hair isn?t right for everyone. As long as you?re careful with the removal process, you can be just as healthy (or even more healthy!) with little or no pubic hair.

Costs of pubic hair waxing/shaving:

* Monetary: At $40-70 per Brazilian wax job, this comes to $500-800 per year -- nearly the cost of a year's textbooks, or auto insurance.

* Medical: The microscopic wounds around the labia, scrotum, and genital area are vulnerable to staph infections (including antibiotic-resistant staph), genital cellulitis, ingrown hair abscesses that can leave scars, increased herpes infections, and suspected increased vulnerability to other STIs.

* Emotional: As we heard from Kasey, intense peer pressure to shave leaves girls little choice but to go along with it unless they want to feel sexually shunned and unattractive -- even among their girlfriends.

No one looks forward to their hair removal routine, regardless of what it is. Each option comes attached to its unique drawbacks. Shaving is terribly time-consuming and has to be repeated daily in order to achieve best results. Waxing is painful while hair removal creams can be smelly and irritating to the skin. Electrolysis is effective and near-permanent? but it's also expensive to the point of being outside of the average person's budget.There is NOTHING PERMANENT, not even laser. Once you stopped? They will grow back like before, it's permanent FOR YOU, because you have to keep at it. . . . for EVER & EVER.

Question About Pubic Hair Waxing/removal?

do yourself a favor, get it waxed...just have a professional do it. the results of having a non-trained/experienced person do it usually leads to lots of itchiness, redness, ingrown hairs, bruising/tearing of the skin, and scarring.

when you go see a wax lady, just tell the lady what you want taken off, even if its everything she can still wax off all the hair down there!! that includes your whole front, between the legs, around your butt crack and your butt cheeks. some people don't automatically wax between the butt cheeks so you may have to ask to get that done as well. just make sure you tell her what you do and don't want taken off.

you might get some redness, possibly some bumps here and there, but they will probably go away within a few hours or so.

my personal experience, i have been waxing most of my body, including the butt and brazilian, and have noticed that the hairs come back shorter, finer, more sparse, and take longer to grow out with each waxing session...these waxings i have been doing for several years and have noticed a SIGNIFICANT difference!!! =)

whenever I get all those areas waxed it the bill comes out a little over $100 plus tip....keep in mind i am a guy which explains the higher price. i live in Odenton, Maryland so I am not sure about the price in your area. you may wanna check out phone books for that.

with most body hair waxing, when you go to a wax session generally you want to make sure that the hairs are no shorter then a quarter inch, but no longer then half an inch. this will help the wax to fully grip the hairs and it's less painful when the hairs are shorter! however, because you are waxing down there, the waxing lady should have a specialized wax for those extra short hairs and sensitive area :)

regarding the pain, it hurts at first, but not as much with each additional waxing session. the pain level for your first time will probably be an 8...next time a 6, than 4, maybe 2, and just 1 to none from then on. just make sure you go to a professional and they will have creams. its much better to wax though since the results are long term and your skin will be baby soft/smooth for a long time, way over a month =)

while getting waxed you may be asked to move your legs in a few different directions to help with better access down there. you will be laying down the whole time, except when doing the butt and butt crack of course. all you really need to do is just relax, talk to the lady to help the time go by faster and try to not think about the actual wax session. don't feel embarrassed when you are spreading/opening up wide down there, the waxing lady does this everyday to men and women so you are not the only one :)

after waxing a few times some hairs will stop growing back, however, for permanent results you may wanna try laser hair removal. after the first session i noticed that in some areas the hair did not grow back at all!! try it if you would like, its gonna cost ya a pretty penny, but its painless and the results last forever. because each persons' skin type is different you may have to get multiple treatments for all hair to be gone. on average you need 5 to 6 treatments. having laser hair removal done is a VERY patient, but rewarding process. if you do not have the patience for it, or don't stick to the laser hair removal plan/treatment timelines, than it will be ineffective.

thanks for reading :)

Here's how to shave your pubes: If you can afford to get no-no hair remover on TV that's the best way. If not then 1st pluck/wax some of them while they're long. Cut the hairs short. Apply shaving cream or conditioner to the pubic area. Then shave upwards in the opposite direction of the hairs with a 5-bladed razor. Be sure to shave hard to make it smooth. Afterwords to avoid getting beginners side effects wash the area off with acne cleanser, dishwasher soap, or rubbing alcohol. It only takes me 5 minutes to shave that & I shave about 3x a week. If done right you will be incredibly smooth like me. If you do experience beginners side effects don't panic! just put acne cream on the bumps, pop them if you can, keep up the shaving routine, & they should go away within a month. That's just a reaction cause your body isnt used to being hairless there. Even I itched & burned when I 1st started. Also try rubbing one of those skin moisturizing bar soaps on the area after you shave it. That'll make it really soft. Also when my facial razor gets dull I switch it to my body razor.

You can also get it removed permanently with electrolysis which is painful & costs $55 an hour. I've gotten 3 treatments on mine. Email me for more info about it.

Here's the benefits of hair removal: The absence of it is erotic, sensational, & it's easier to sexually relieve yourself. You'll feel sexier, younger, & cleaner. For girls it makes their periods easier to clean up because the hair traps in blood. It's cleaner because hair traps in odors & dirt & is 1 less thing to wash when you take a shower. One of the reasons I started shaving is because I would kill time twirling the hairs when I saw that area. Pubes can get caught in stuff like your zipper. & you won't leave long gross hairs on stuff like toilets. The only real con is that it takes time & maintance. But then alot of hairy people spend that time doing other worthless stuff like smoking.

I've got a blog posted on my profile about why there's nothing wrong with pubic hair removal (or body hair removal on either sex) that you & everybody else should read. & fyi you don't need to be sexually active to shave that area. I have friends that are complete prudes that are into body hair removal.

I hope I am helping people by answering these questions. If you don't wanna pick my answer as best at least let me know if my advice has helped you.

Question About Pubic Hair Waxing/removal?

In my own experience, the hair removal creams don't work very well for that kind of hair. I tried it once, & it only removed about half the hair, & you aren't supposed to leave it on for more than a certain amount of time or it can hurt your skin, so it's not like I could just have left it on longer. The waxing would be more effective, but it's not that easy to wax your own bikini line. I tried it once(actually,now that I remember it,I also did it because I was seeing a guy on the weekend), & even if you have a higher threshold for pain, or tell yourself that you'll just bite the bullet & rip it off real quick, it's easier said than done. When a pro does it, they're not feeling your pain, so they just get it over with real quick. But when you say you have wax strips, do you mean the pre-waxed strips that you warm in your hands? Because I've found them to sometimes irritate or even tear my skin-sometimes for me anyway,they don't get all the hair off in one shot, so I'd have to go over an area more than once. And then if it's the cold wax strips, they don't seem to work that well. Another thing with waxing is that when the hair grows back, you'll have this period of a few days where the hair's just under the skin, but hasn't broken though yet.So you can see it, but since it hasn't broken through the skin yet, there's nothing you can do about it but wait it out. But as far as shaving goes, while that area is more prone to bumps & irritation, there's a few things you can do to reduce the chances of that happening. I used to get horrible bumps & irritation for years,to the point where I could only shave in the direction the hair grew to avoid it. Which sucked,because you don't get a totally smooth shave doing that. So I started doing it a bit differently: First off,wet the area & apply shave gel.Shave cream is ok too, but the gel is better in my opinion. Let it sit a minute to soften the hairs. With a brand new razor, shave in the direction the hair grows. Now apply more shave gel. But this time, carefully shave in the opposite direction the hair grows. I don't know why this works doing it that way,but I get a smooth shave w/little to no bumps or irritation. Plus it helps if you wait til the last minute to do it-sometimes shaving over 1 day's worth of stubble can cause irritation.I've noticed that the longer I go in between shaves, the closer of a shave I'll get. I know you're not planning to shave,but thought I'd mention this incase you change your mind.
