I have wondered the same thing!  I’ve never waxed anything before, so I’m curious too!  ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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?

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…

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 Fiance 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!

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 ๐Ÿ™
