actually i think its like normal waxin except that its done 'below'...thinking of doing it as a surprise for my hubby...
But actually, is it totally bare after the waxing or will there be a small tuff of hair...? Me getting confused, cos i didn't really read properly...
I think it is PAINFUL!!! There was once I shaved EVERYTHING off! It already hurt not to mention waxing....It felt good for a while cos long time no see it so clean liao! AHHAHAHHA
But when it grow back, I freaking regret the hasty decision cos it itch like mad!!!!! And I can't possibly scratch in the public right? And the funniest part is the short stub poke out of your undies and some thin tight fitting skirts....completely hilarious.
Waxing - regrowth is thinner and not as itchy. But is it worth the pain??? I trim it nowadays rather than shave...couldn't forget the itchy experience.
Small tuff of hair difficult cos where there is hair, there WILL be hair, unless you shave.
What I do is just take sissors and cut really short lor.... Careful not to cut yourself though. I got a nasty infection once cos of this. I always cut until like those army boys botak head...kekekekke
Won't lah. Poke cos shave then after that grow stubbles....you know like men beard like that???
If you trim you cut short but the hair still long enuff to "rest" properly on top of each other....Eh...a bit funny hor the description...kekekek
Maybe not botak lah...Crew cut???? kekekekkek
but honestly, cleaner and feels better esp when having menses....
Before you do the wax thingy and leaving 'there' botak, do check with your hubby if he prefers it that way. I checked with mine, he doesn't like it botak there... hehehehe... just in case your planned surprise turned out to be a shock to him!
aiyoh, how come become so bad? I got frens who pluck their armpits hair & pubic hair, no problem leh...maybe ur skin is sensitive???
For me, i shaved my armpit hair everyday & after that, put some deodorant...seems to be no problem for me..
Y not stop the plucking & use cream to remove the hair. It is painless but it may seems messy & troublesome. I used to use the Immac cream to remove armpit hair but i find it time-consuming, so now i switched to shaving. Fast & gd for the lazy bum 4 me...
can the Immac cream be used to remove the hair "downunder"? n why do u say it's time-consuming?
by the way i luurrve to pluck my armpit hair, it's so shiok, the sense of omph when i pull it out... aiyah,quite undescribable... my frens were horrified that i derived so much pleasure from hair-plucking
i think there is. If i'm not wrong, there's one specifically for bikini line.
First, u have to apply the cream on the area, then use a stopwatch or agar-agar wait for 5mins & wipe off the cream. Then the hair would come off with the cream itself. That's why i said its time-consuming. If u shave, it just take a few seconds! Also, it may be a bit messy cos the cream if not handled properly, will be everywhere...haha...
ANyway, i can't imagine plucking the armpit hair....plucking the eyebrow is already painful enuf! And my hubby actually pluck his pubic hair (those stray ones only). ANd i got frens who also enjoyed plucking their armpit hair..Ouch!!
when u use Immac cream on your armpit, was the regrowth stubbly or prickly? i'm thinking of trying the bikini cream, but am afraid the regrowth will be itchy and prickly ... if turn out like linda's case.. "cham" liao hahaha, linda u r reali candid
the regrowth is fine & not so stubbly compared to shaving. But of cos, shavin is definitely better as its less time-consuming! its very impt to shave evryday, dun want to be caught with hairy pit ala julia roberts...
Is it ur 1st time using this brand??
If it is, b4 u try it down there, u have to test a little on a patch of skin on somewhere else of ur body. THis is to see whether u wil be allergic or any reaction to the cream...Better be safe than sorry har...
Anyone of u tried One Touch hair removal cream b4?
Saw this at the pharmacy yday & it look pretty easy to use.
U just have to roll on to the area then u shower it off! The hair would come off just like that! Look really tempting to try it...it is for bikini, face & body...and cost $7+ per bottle only..
Just thought I would let you know that the ingrown hairs are caused when the skin actually grows over the plucked/shaved areas.
To prevent that, you need regular scrubs to remove these skin.
Plucking is still the cheapest and most effective option. If it's too tiring to pluck, invest in an epilator.
It's a small hand-held device which has to be plugged to the socket to work. The heads consists of many tweezers which rotate and pinches the stubbles from your pits, legs or arms. It takes merely 5 minutes and you're clean....
The costs range from $50 - $100+ and can be bought at Watsons, Best Denki, Safe, most places selling electrical appliances......
epilator plucks out the hair so the regrowth is slower and finer... shaver - your hair will grow back with blunt ends so feels very pokey after 2-3 days. with plucking, sometimes, can leave it for about 3 weeks without regrowth.
Someone recommended Suvin's at Midpoint so I went there. It's the best wax I ever had! I've done normal bikini wax before but never Brazilian so was very nervous. Very painful! Jumped up when she did the first rip.....but Ruby, the girl who did for me is really experienced and very fast. Was done in about 10 mins. She did a really good job. I was really impressed. The shop looks very small, dark and dingy but she was really professional. Highly recommend the place. Will definately go back there. One caution though....this is only for those who are not shy....because you have to expose everything to her.
brazilian wax means they actually remove all the hair down there till it's totally bald??? including hair on the inside of the "lips" is it?? what is the procedure like? how fast was the regrowth and was the regrowth fine? how much did it cost?? my goodness, if it's really what i think it is then it's like going to a gynae right??
It cost me $40. Well, actually the brazilian means all the hair including the "lips" but leaving just a narrow or thick strip....depending on what you want. Everything gone is a "hollywood" but when I went there....I told her that i don't want everything to be gone...that I want a strip. can't imagine everything gone! She told me to see her in 3 weeks. So i think it's like normal waxing where every 3 weeks should be time to redo it. Yup, it's exactly like going to the gynae...she asked me to wear this sarong. The regrowth is definately finer than shaving. I tried shaving and might as well not do it because within 1 day, there is regrowth and the regrowth is very corse and thick. Will let you guys know in a week's time how bad the itching is!!!! But it was only slightly burning after she did it and then a few mins later....no itching or anything.
I tried the brazilian at suvin's a few weeks ago. They're good and very fast so the pain is over quick. Will definately go back to them. Can't remember the girl's name who did it for me. But the place looks very run down so be prepared. Of all the salons I've been to, they're the ones that do the best job and the price is ok too.
Go ahead and try the brazilian. It's very painful but once you've had it, you'll want to do it again. Too bad it's quite expensive so I can only afford to do it once in a while. Don't have the guts to do it myself.
I tried plucking and it just irritates the sensitive skin plus it hurts! The creams also smell bad and I made a mistake of using too much before. So I just stick to shaving which is not the ideal way since it grows back quite quick. The wax lasts you anything from 3 weeks to 6 weeks. So if you've got the money, you can go for a wax every month but what I do is to just shave the sides alittle and wait for 2 months before going for a wax again.
Hi Jav, thanks for your tips. Just afraid of ingrown hairs when we shave. Must ask my hubby if its worth spending this money to please him. He'll usually say if it's painful, don't do it. I think I can bear the pain more than spending the money!!
Brazilian is all the hair off even at the lips, except for a thin strip of hair. It's a painful process and unfortunately the results lasts max 2 months and the hair gets bushy again. So have to find the best way to maintain and not waste money.
The regrowth is finer than shaving......I find that the hair takes much longer to grow back.
TF, whether shaving or waxing will get ingrowth hair. Even plucking will also get ingrowth hair. The key to it is to scrub (gently of course!) so that the hair goes not get lodged under the dead skin cells.
