ok. its all really confusing. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
ive read the Hinkel book now and am envisioning doing this (i dont have a machine yet). i imagined i would learn on my legs since i can see that surface best. I only have leg and pubic available for removal as my face is the sole job of my pro! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
but there is so much to this! deciding on current, deciding on time (if using blend), calculating units of lye right, deciding on insertion depth… and if its not going well (if indeed i can even tell that), which variable to tweak… is it the wrong depth? wrong calculation? wrong to try this on yourself, haha? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />
im waiting on my next books and will keep reading until it gets clearer, but i have to say Hinkel isnt the best explainer ive ever come across. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
any advice on starting to learn this stuff? start purely with galvanic? or just start by inserting over and over with nothing until you “get a feel?” can one feel the depth of a follicle manually or do you have to, as Hinkel implies, wing it? ok, he didnt say that, but he certainly talks about how often you have insertion mistakes and how choosing blend covers that because of the heating pattern and travel of the lye, etc. made it almost sound really common. i dont think he ever mentioned feeling the end of the follicle, as my electrologist says she feels…
sigh. is this just the newbie jitters? how did you all do your first hairs? especially those of you who are doing your body hair as opposed to your face (which i am going to let my electrologist finish herself)? the body hairs are pretty dang fine (though long and red)… does everyone use a huge magnifying glass?
