Just to let you know my problem: I have hairy shoulders which I absolutely hate. I have hair on my chest too, but I don’t mind that so much because it stays flat, but the hair on the shoulders stands up “to attention” like soldiers and is generally really unattractive.
I’ve shaved it off before, but I decided to try something more long-lasting, so I’ve just gone and used Veet/Immac waxing strips (first time I’ve used wax) on my shoulders, according to the instructions. I’ve moisturised the skin now with oil (mentha piperita I think) and it seems to calmed down a little.
To give it credit, it’s worked quite well and didn’t hurt much. My only problem now is: where do I stop? I don’t mind a kind of “vest” distribution of chest hair but where do I stop on the arms? I don’t want to remove the hair on my arms but there is quite a demarcation line between the hairy and non-hairy zones along the front of my arm and especially at the back. Most of the hair on my arms is the rather innocent downy stuff not the big black hairs that I hate.
Is there a way of “blending” the two zones together or do I have to put up with it?
Also, what’s the best way now of maintaining it? Do I just wait for it to grow again, then re-wax, or should I shave it (kind of defeats the purpose)?
