  • Bikini line waxing is generally fine as long as you get it professionally done by a reputable salon.

    If you want to try shaving then the body trimmers are a good idea to avoid cutting yourself.

    • Wax the triangle area which is below your tummy, shave everything that is between your legs.

      I do that, and I find waxing the rest hurts way too much.

      And ive been doing it for a year

      • Not to shave

        Hi,
        I shaved my private area once before and it itched when it grew back. I say don't shave it at all.

        • Hi

          I woudnt recommend saving, i started off using small Julienne bikini wax strips for the triangle part it hurt a bit the first time but you get used to it. If the hair is long cut shoter it before waxing. I now use a hard microwave wax (julienne hard wax might only be in australia), its a bit more tricky then the strips but i prefer it.

          • I just shave.

            I mean, yeah at first it itches, but honestly, if you keep it up and shave at least every other day, the itch goes away completely.

            At first it helps if you trim way down before shaving. But after that, just keep the shaving up. It costs less, and in the end is way less trouble.

            Just remember to shave with the hair, never against; that's an easy way to get razor burn, which is a to get rid of.

            Furthermore, when you shave, to get closer, pull your skin away from the razor as you do so. I know that may sound weird, but I've found that I get a much closer shave.

            • I was a little scared to try the brazilian wax, but once I did I have never looked back. Hands down, even though it hurts a bit, I was really happy with it because it was cleaner, and it lasted so much longer.

              The trick is finding someone who can do it properly....that is definately a challenge. But just a tip in case you do decide to try doing a brazilian: make sure that whoever your waxer is they pull the skin tight in the area they are placing the wax and still pulling it tight when they pull the strip off. Hurts WAY less! I also heard that there is a spray that "numbs" the area, but I have never tried it.

              • how do i get hair free for weeks

                i use a razor mostley, i tried that veet cream, slapped on and left it then massaged it in then washed it off, my legs were rather sore when i had a bath, it's as if my skin is rather delicate with that product.

                after shaving, the next day i've got sfubble, how can you keep your legs hair free for weeks, i'm humming and harring about waxing, if it keeps them hair free i might try it

                  • I dont know what you've been hearing about diseases from waxing!!!

                    Shavings good

                    • I shave personally, too afraid to wax... **shudders** but to do it every other day?!?! ouches.... how to you keep from bleeding? Shaving away doesn't hurt, your right, but it doesn't make it smooth either.... I shave about once a week, I have to deal with the itching, but it hurts less when shaving it smooth.

                      so, how can you shave every other day with out it hurting?

                      • shaving is better than a hair removal cream.because private area hair are more harder than legs and arms. i done it after a week. but after three or four days it is more painful because it is more irritating and itching. it is shameful.

                          If I knew where to go and could afford it, I would definately try waxing because I know there are spots I miss with the razor.
