I recently bought an Epilator (a Phillips Satinelle - can’t rememember the exact one). I’ve used it on my underarms (it seems to work best here) and legs (not so good, but I figure that maybe I need to get a bit more used to it), and am planning to use it ‘down there’ (although, I decided to remove a the first lot of hair THERE using tweezers first).
Anyway, on my underarms, the pain has already faded and I find it much much better (for me, personally) than when I used to shave (you know, softer regrowth etc.) My leg experience wasn’t brilliant - I missed a lot of hairs (probably carelessness), and regrowth came within less than a week (was not impressed) although it was softer. Down below, I manually plucked (heck! I was too scared to just dive in with those crazy rotating disc’s). This worked really well (considering I remove it all), and maybe I should stick to this rather than using the epilator.
Anyway, all in all, I’ve found it better than shaving/depilatories/Nads.
So, I thought I’d do a little more reasearch on the subject, and found this site and message board (both brilliantly informative!).
However, there have been some things I have read on the boards that have kinda scared me, such as:
- Plucking can make regrowth thicker
- Hair removal from root can mess-up the follicle (or something similar to that)
[And some other things, I can’t remember off the top of my head]
And I’ve also seen loadsa pics of models in mags who only appear to remove hair so far up their legs. Is this what’s supposed to be done? I remove ALL leg hair and could people give me an idea of up to where many women do remove leg hair? Thanks!
And can you help me with the pros/cons of epilation (via rotary epilators)?
