long hair


#1

How long does the hair have to be to epilate? Do you have to wait until it becomes all stubly and gross?

Brit:

When you wax or Epilate, the new hair is very thin and you will never get stubs like you do when shaving.
Having said that, the hair folicule must be at least 1mm long for the tweezer to be able to grab each hair folicule.

So, I guess it depends on your definition of gross?

oh yea i forgot to ask but i heard that epilators give you ingrown hairs should i buy anything else like exfolitaing body scrub along with my epilator to help the ingrown hairs?

Brit:

Try exfoilating with a natural sponge and soap.
On every place you epilate, while in the shower, you sponge against the hair direction for a few minutes on each area and after use aloe or similar to moistrize the area. This should greatly help in reducing ingrowns.
