Hey i’m not excessively hairy for a dark haired guy but i’ve always been pretty effeminate and now I’m 23 and the hair is present and fairly course in all expected areas: chest, arms, legs and erm…yeh and i cant’ wear the clothes I wanna wear without revealing it (chest, arms and legs in the case of clothes :S)
I’ve tried all sorts of methods like shaving, hair removal cream, waxing…well thats it i think. But all of these have left me with a painful, persistant rash, despite liberal amounts of moisturising. Would epilating avoid this? The initial pain I can deal with but I don’t wanna be rashy until the hair grows back. The rash seems to be caused by either harsh treatment to my skin, i.e waxing/shaving, and the thick, newly strenthened hair trying to grown back.
Also would shaving the hair with electric clippers (you know like the ones you use on your head hair, dunno the correct name)before epilation lessen the potential for a rash and/or pain?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
