Shaving was not a mistake. You did nothing wrong. Shaving does not affect hair growth. There have been well- conducted studies all over the planet to prove that SHAVING DOES NOT AFFECT HAIR GROWTH. All shaving does is mechanically remove the hair above the skin. Thick hair needs a good blood supply and hormones to stimulate it to grow beyond what is desired. Shaving has nothing to do with the reason why hair grows.
WEET is like chemical shaving. The harsh chemicals in VEET dissolve the hair just a little below the skin line. What is harsh for hair is also harsh for skin. Depilatories can irritate the skin and thus stimulate more hair more hair to grow in order to protect the skin. Ditch the VEET. Give the rest of your VEET to that mean guy and tell him to use it where the sun don’t shine. :mad:
Your thick hairs will not revert to thin hairs. Bleaching will not make thick hairs finer. They need to be removed with electrolysis. Your hair color dictates this. Electrolysis is your only option. LASER won’t work. You should find a way to afford electrolysis if you want relief. Some people get a job or even a second job, some borrow money from a relative and unfortunately, some stoop to using student loan or scholarship money. I have clients who are welfare recipients getting electrolysis and some who use their social security money as well. If you want something bad enough, you would be surprised to find how creative you can be. With that said, if you want to disguise the hair you can bleach, clip or shave. I am not a proponent of anything that pulls the hair out (waxing, threading, sugaring, tweezing)as it serves to make the problem worse over time. If you decide to get electrolysis, FIND SOMEONE WHO HAS UPDATED and WHO CONTINUES HER/HIS EDUCATION. A modern, speedy, efficient electrologist is what you need to get you cleared of all bothersome hairs. Once you are cleared, spacing appointments every 4-6 weeks is all you need for the next 9- 12? -18? months. Anything else, gets frustrating, but it will still work in the end.
