honestly I’ve never understood epilators but also my hair is SUPER thick. Like I plucked a lip hair this morning and it felt like I pulled the root straight from my soul. I shave it : /

While I don’t wax my arms, I wax almost everything else (legs, bikini, underarms). I far prefer it to shaving because my hair grows back sparser and thinner. And because it comes back with its natural wispy end, it doesn’t itch when it grows back for me the way shaved hair itches. Some people have found the opposite, so perhaps that varies from person to person. But over time, I have to wax less and less because there’s simply less hair and it is finer and shows less.

omg thank you for posting!! I thought about this yesterday! My hair is incredibly thick and dark and I’m as pale as It gets. I think it would be hard for hair to show up in a photo but I’m going to wax anyway. I’m getting a spray tan for my wedding too so I need to wax before the spray tan.
Btw did you do underarm for laser? It didn’t exactly work for me even after 12 treatments it still grows. It’s dramatically less but it’s still there

After what happened to my chest, I don’t do laser above my waist. I plan on waxing my underarms.
But same for other areas (up/lower legs, Brazilian) – it’s not permanent. I mean the hair is much finer (so now it’s average as opposed to thick and sharp enough to strike a match) but I still have to shave. I’ve had maybe 7 or so sessions since 2010?

I have a wax warmer at home and I wax my entire body myself. I mean I pluck out the stray hairs that just pop up all over the damn place these days, but I wax my legs, armpits, mustache, and eyebrows myself. I could NEVER afford to do that as often as it needs to be done, but I much prefer waxing especially for my pesky mustache and armpits. The salon-quality wax that is made for the wax warmers is way better than any of the grocery store brand stuff. you can get microwave versions, but I like the wax warmer because it keeps it a consistent temp. It was about $50 and it has paid for itself 10x over already, even with the price of wax. I love waxing. I’m a wax fanatic. I only use razors occassionally because i can’t get my stupid hair to grow in on the same cycle. The only reason I even advised against waxing your arms as a first resort is because I’ve never done it. fear of the unknown. but I highly recommend looking into it. It has really been a game changer for me with hair management. I can go DAYS without worrying about a damn thing, and the hair actually gets finer over time. cray.

I think I’m traumatized by the one time I attempted a Brazilian wax in high school. The lady wouldn’t finish- I was so obviously writing in pain and the hair was only coming out like 80%. I think I bled too! Lol I remember distinctly because she stopped at such a funny spot- it looked like a little moustache on my area😩

yeah they’re kind of freaky and definitely not for everyone but worth trying. I finally caved and tried one because I was sick of paying for getting waxed and only had 50% success with getting someone good at waxing my face (half the people for some reason just could not get the hairs on my neck area) Honestly it hurts less where I’ve had waxed than the wax does, and the more you use it the less it seems to hurt. I don’t know that I would use it on the mustache area though because thats sooo sensitive. My legs were really painful at first, but I tried buzzing them and then using the epilator with lido cream and it was loads better, I would imagine its similar for arms (plus it didn’t come back for a week and a half when normally I get stubble next day)
