The hair just breaks off! What should I do?

I have thin hairs all over my stomach, but they’re dark. Every time I wax, half of the hair breaks instead of coming out from the roots. I make sure my skin is clean, I pull the skin taut and quickly pull of in the opposite direction of hair growth and everything else I’m supposed to do… But it still just breaks off! They’re not too short to wax either.

Eh, I just want a smooth tummy. Is that too much to ask for?

Anyone have an idea what I can do? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

Try applying a talcum powder before applying the wax … or apply the talc on the strip and then rub it before pulling it off. These should help.

You could try electrolysis

Should you opt for using the talc powder, use corn starch baby powder instead.
