Easiest way to get rid of hair down below watch

    What do you guys [meaning girls really, I am a girl but if you're a guy who doesn't like having pubes this is for you too] do to get rid of your pubes? Shave, wax?

    Personally I like being bare but I kind of have a fear of using waxing strips down there, and I can't afford professional. So I shave but this doesn't really last very long and it's probably not the most effective or the most safe [eurghghgh].

    Does anyone have any tips? I've thought about using hair removal cream but I was worried that it might cause irritation.



    On a side note, I guess this just shows how twisted the beauty world is, that some girls, myself included, will take hot wax, razors, and burning chemicals, and apply them to one of the most delicate parts of our body. That's pretty ****ed up really when you think about it.

    Wax them. It might sting for 2/3 minutes, but it'll be worth the hair-free weeks after!

    That's a shame, I was considering investing in one of those lumiere things but maybe they only work for finer hair on your legs and that.

    What about professional electrolysis? It's not something I know much about - is it a permanent fix and can it be done down below?

    But do you use it all over or just for your bikini line? Cause I need something where it doesn't really matter where it gets

    I went to a salon, the home lasers 110% will not work / will take AGES.

    Electrolysis is really expensive and can leave really bad scars

    Don't use hair removal cream, it smells horrible, stings and isn't that great for getting rid of the hair for long

    It varies between people, for me it causes no skin irritation and the smell tends to subside after one shower.

    I use hair removal cream for the most part and waxing strips for my bikini line

    Cream can get a little messy but you soon work it all out, and waxing hurts a lot less than you'd think! Just make sure you warm them up for a little bit on the radiator or something before hand

    The only problem I find is the expense! Sometimes just wanna shave for that reason alone >.<

    They don't work at all, don't waste your money.

    Yes it's permanent, and it can be done almost anywhere. You need a lot of sessions (15-30, when the hair is in the growth stage, normally estimated as around a year of sessions) but the hair will never grow back, ever. It's not that painful, it's not that expensive, and it's the only 100% guaranteed method of permanent removal. If you want it, please try to find someone on this list (click Find a Member) as they definitely know what they're doing.

    It shouldn't scar if you go to a properly trained professional and you follow the aftercare advice.

    I would advise electrolysis. It works very well, and in the end your hairless. And its relatively painless also.

    I epilate as close as I can then shave the rest off. If you epilate you need to get a good body scrub to exfoliate daily. I also use TendSkin which works wonders for any razor bumps, it's very expensive though but recommended by beauty websites.
    Would go waxing, but too expensive for a student...

    I tried a hair removal cream and it works ok on arms (I hate body hair even though I got blonde hairs) but else where, especially for dark hair it doesn't work that well. Your bikini area won't be that smooth, even if it looks hairless. I actually ended up shaving the next day just so it feels softer. Also some people get nasty chemical burns , especially in that area, so I would only use it for the bikini area and not any closer. (My friend had scabs for days, ruining her romantic holiday even though she used the same cream before. it's a hit and miss situation and I agree, I had tiny rash on my arm for a few days when other times I get nothing...)
