Okay! please excuse my stupid question. You can obviously tell I dont do it to much! haha, But what do you do in between the time the hair starts growing back and the time you need to wax it again in terms of showing your lady parts to your hubby or under arms? I know that the hair has to be a certain length before u can wax it again, but Im just curious/stressing over the time in between… Do you avoid wearing anything sleeveless till your good to go?
Again, sorry if this seems like a stupid question! 🙂

I have wondered the same thing! I’ve never waxed anything before, so I’m curious too! 🙂

Well I’m no waxing expert, but I will say that your hubby will probably be really excited to see any lady bits , bare or not 😉
You could always trim, or shape up new hair growth to give it some tame until your next waxing or if its reallly a big deal, then perhaps just wax more frequently so theres not alot of inbetween growth?

@Eva Peron: haha I totally understand when it comes to the ‘ ahem ahem” but what about under arms? Haha Im pretty sure no man will be ‘ ooo la- la can I touch? 😉 ” Haha, Im not sure if its possible to wax RIGHT when the hair starts growing back because there wont be enough to hold on to really. And I totally want to avoid shaving as well!

I cannot help you in the underarm area b/c I’ve never waxed there, BUT I do wax my “ahem” every 4 weeks. It’s amazing how much thinner the hair grows back. It’s very fine (is this TMI?!), so I just deal with it and so does my FH! I actually have never heard of anyone getting their armpits waxed though…

@AshleyR83: Thanks for the reply! and its true, I noticed the times I DID wax- the hair was definetly finer.. Im going to start wax testing from now until the wedding and how soon grows, etc. Thank you so much!

Have not done the under arms, but will be interested in seeing if anyone does have experience with that!

@Mrsgurzakovic: Depending on the type of was used, your hair actuall grows thinner. And I think you’ll be fine in between periods.

So, I never waxed my underarms for this very reason. For me, any armhair whatsoever is unacceptable (it’s super dark and I’m super pale).
BUT- I got brazillians for 2 years before I did laser (which I highly recommend over waxing).
For the first couple of times, it’s tough during the growing back process. You might have to live with a full…um… “do,” for two weeks or so. After that though, the hair starts to grow back thinner and a bit lighter. Because you’re pulling the hair out by the roots, what grows back isn’t “stubbly,” in the least. The hair tip is pointed and therefore softer to the touch, instead of flat due to being shaved off (the way your leg stubble is).
It’s really not bad after the first few. Also, your FI likely won’t care. Mine was so excited with the post-wax results that he happily accepted any in-between times. ANYTHING is better than razor stubble.

I’m not a huge fan of waxing anymore. I mean, I like the immediate results, but as soon as it starts to grow back, I get a LOT of ingrown hairs – EVERY SINGLE TIME. Yes, it grows back finer, but it’s not worth the cost or ingrown hairs for me. However, when I waxed more regularly, I didn’t show those in public (no swimming, tank tops) until I was hairless again. For the boy – he doesn’t really care either way!

@AshleyR83: Yep, exactly this.

ive been waxing for years and i wax every 4 to 5 weeks. my hair has grown very fine and half my legs hair no longer even grows there anymore and 99% of the time do not get ingrown hairs

I’ve never been consistent with waxing, so I don’t have much input on what to do in between but I wanted to say I’ve done both the arm pit and the lady bits. I really wish I could keep up on waxes, it comes down to the cost and the fact that I get terrible ingrowns. But I have freak folicles and two to three hairs per folicle… Anyone else have this issue? But also, it grows back exremely quickly for me, like under two weeks 🙁
