    This is probably only relevant to girls!
    Okay, so this is a little bit embarassing, I suppose, but I've been trying to wax my armpit hair, and it doesn't really seem to work! Like, the wax strip doesn't really pull any hair off and the wax just stays there!
    So girls, do you wax your armpit? And if so, do you do it yourself? What am I doing wrong?

    I can't wax my armpits to save my life, same problem as you. Think if you lie down and pull your skin tight it should work better.
    I just shave mine as cream always makes them red raw

    I would suggest shaving. It's dead simple and only takes a sec

    Nah, shave them - much easier, I don't think it's possible to wax without having more than two hands available!

    Waxing lasts much longer than shaving, although shaving is probably easier, you can always ask a friend/sibling to wax your armpits for you. It doesn't take long and its not painful either! I can't wax myself either, i'm useless hahaha, i always get other people to (usually a beautician though, but if it's only for your armpits there's really no point)

    I've never been able to wax my own either, but I've had them waved professionally which worked. I epilate them now though; it doesn't hurt too much after the first few times :P

    I really recommend going to a salon first time, then once they do it once you should be able to do it from home

    I did that ^ and now i can easily epilate the hairs without any trouble

    I've always shaved them, but you end up having to do it so often and it gets pretty hairy as well so I thought I would try waxing. Glad I'm not the only one with problems!

    I was thinking of epilating but its so painful (I tried it, very briefly once!) But I might try it again, when the hairs are still short-ish.

    Shaving is easier, and actually do-able with only one hand free
