    Hi,

    I'm a 21 yr old guy. In the past I've shaved my arm pits a couple of times but let it grow back because it was incredibly itchy! Also when I've trimmed them they've felt the same way. I haven't done anything to them in the past couple of years now but I feel like there's a bit much, often when i wear anti-persperant the hair becomes sticky etc and it's just not nice.

    Anyways, I was thinking of getting them waxed (at the salon, not at home). What are everybody’s experiences of this? I know it'll hurt but it will be worth it. Does it itch afterwards like shaving?

    PS. I don’t sweat a lot or smell or anything, I just don’t like having the amount of pit hair that I’ve got. Often when wearing t-shirts from the likes of top man, which have really short sleeves you can see the hair nd it’s not nice. It’s getting on summer and I want to wear vests nd stuff without feeling so self-conscious.

    waxing is good. it thins the hair out when it grows back so its itchy. it only hurts the first couple of times but afer a while you wont feel a thing other than a dull tug of the hairs being pulled out. waxing at home is much cheaper btw.

    I'd say yes, smoother is better and would stop the build up of moisture.

    shaving hair only makes it grow longer and fasterrr personally i think byos should not wax their armpits, its kinda sexy :P , but if you like to look nicer under there and be a little less self conscious, try clipping them or just cutting them with scissors or use a razor with a no 3 blade.

    trust me, when you wear vest in the summer with your bald armpits showing, most girls are not going to be very impressed. :noway:

    Again, trimming = itchy!!! Does the itching stop after your skin gets used to it or what?

    trimming shouldnt be itchy. when i say trimming, i mean dont go all the way close to your skin, just get rid of the excess lenth if there is excess.

    dont go all the way and wax, its not going to be pretty for you. girls like guys with a bit of hair you know. i dont mean like gorilla hairy, i mean the normal man amounts at the man places
