    F that. Lol I wouldn’t have the nerve to do it myself. I hate ripping band aids off, I’d be there for a week.

    Lol I booked one literally immediately after I read this! a mini push! She assured me though they start from the outside in so they can stop if I chicken out 😀 

    so have you stopped DIYing then?

    Lol totally! After Friday the 9th (I have I wait for it to grow 🙁 ) I’ll let you know how bad it is! 😀

    im getting a spray tan too. I tried this DIY at home and I looked like I was in the final stages of liver failure…not painful but not a DIY for me! lol

    Madeline789:  I shave, for a few reasons:

    1) I don’t seem to get a good result home-waxing; I find it fiddly

    2) Salon waxes are expensive where I live ($50 plus tip)

    3) I find waxing doesn’t last long enough to justify the cost: about 2 weeks with me

    4) I hate hate HATE having to wait ages for regrowth: when I was getting waxed, I was spending 2-3 weeks fairly hair-free, then 3 weeks (ie 50% of the time) hairy

    5) I don’t get a rash when I shave, and get good results: there’s little difference between that and a wax if I do it properly, and I can shave every other day so never have to put up with hair

     

    I really rate epilating as you don’t need to wait for as much regrowth (you can do it on hairs that are like 2mm); but I find it time-consuming and I’m always running late, so 99.9% of the time I end up just shaving because it takes seconds.

    I have in the past, but I have hideous thick hair with a root bulb that really ‘grabs’ so it is extremely painful. Because of my hair type (bleeds every time), I have to have it professionally done for at least 4-5 months so the hair thins out before I attempt any DIY waxing. 

    If you have finer hair that isn’t overly thick you can definitely do a DIY 🙂 Depends on your pain tolerance as well.

    Madeline789:  I get it done every 4 weeks or so. It hurts, but definitely gets easier the more often you do it.

    I attempted to do my own years ago and limped away with horrible bruising and and half waxed vagina. It was awful. Fastforward to three days before my wedding and I decided to visit an interesting woman named Becky and allowed her to do the most painful thing I’ve ever had done. After it was over I was very happy with the end result. I would do it again but only by a professional!
