oh man… I cannot believe this.
I have always thought, somewhat subconciously that maybe just maybe this would be the case if I were to shave before my electro appoints. , but it was never enough of a conscious thought to actually genuinely contemplate it, and actually act upon it.
Now, having been attending electrolysis (thermolysis) sessions on average 1-2x p/week for over 18 months, I am absolutely KICKING MYSELF at this realisation.
I now realise that I have wasted a very large amount of 1hours,2money,3pain4travel in treating “virgin growth”, with any no. of hairs (typically up to half or more) being “out of growing phase”, and thus destined to return anyway.
I am dumbfounded, that with all the thorough research I have done into hair removal , types of electro., practitioners, pain-relief methods,skin after-care,etc,etc over the last few years - more research than most folks would probably do -… that I have completely overlooked this very simple , yet completely fundamental & absolutely invaluable approach to my electro sessions, that would have already put me much further along the path towards being hair-free by now , and would have saved so much in terms of everything, most importantly the TIME that I have spent being treated over the last 18 months, which could have been spent purely dedicated to removal of “in growing phase” hairs (or at least 90%+ in-growing hairs).
as I said… ABSOLUTELY KICKING MYSELF, that I could have possibly overlooked this , all this time.
my electrologist has never mentioned anything, but then I guess - its probably worse for her business in the long run , for me to finish sooner, or maybe she just didnt think it was her place to say anything about shaving beforehand.
annoyed with myself,
