Hey, i’m a hairy guy for my age (19) and i get quite bothered about how i look because of it. I’d prefer to remove it permantly but i’m not willing to go to a salon so home kits are my best choice.
I’m not willing to shave because imo the stuble sort of feel defeats the purpose of doing it in the first place.
I’ve been reading up all around the forums here, and for me it’s come down to waxing or epilating, and i’ve decided epilating. Only i have no idea what kind of epilator to get.
Ok, so… my hair type is thick and dark. My thighs are just as hairy as my legs which REALLY bothers me (there’s rarely only 1 hair growing out of each follicle! it’s not uncommon to see 2 or 3 hairs growing out of the same follicle). I want to remove my leg hair, stomach hair, upper chest (not too fussed about chest hair, as it’s fairly normal anyway), and also the hair on my upper arms (who on earth gets hair there when they’re 19?? crazy) and also shoulders and back. The hair on my shoulders and back is thin and light but as i get older it’s turning darker, so it must go.
But yeh, all my hair is dark and thick.
Price is not an issue. It means enough to me to spend on.
And lastly, pain is not an issue if it means more effective. (though i’ve never experienced the removal of hair pain before. Is it THAT bad?)
ANY help is GREATLY GREATLY GREATLY GREATLY appricicated!
p.s. i’m under the impression that once the hair is removed from the root (i.e. with waxing and epilating) it comes back lighter and thinner? is this true? if so i might be satisfied with only 1 or 2 removals, as i don’t mind too much being hairy, it’s just the extent of how hairy i am that bothers me. I’d be happy with a slight peach fuzz.
