I would love any help I could get with this. I have tried waxing my legs, but the wax only takes off a small percentage of the hair. The hairs are about 1/4 of an inch long - would it do better if they were longer? I have tried both a microwave waxing kit and a home-made sugaring solution, and have followed directions as carefully as I can.
My mother once lent me her epilator to try and I had a similar experience - a lot of pain and very little hair removal. I may have just been using it improperly, but I am starting to wonder if I just have weird hair that resists being pulled out. Is there such a problem, or should I be looking more to technique and hair length?
