Period.
Let’s discuss a more personal topic today. Hair removal. I am not limiting this discussion to certain body parts, so we can be discussing anything from head to toe, as long as we remain civil. There might be kids reading this post ;-P What are your memorable experiences in body and facial hair removal? And yes, we cover ALL areas here. Or, maybe just a simple question of, how do you remove your unwanted hair?
I will answer first. I don’t have much facial or body hair to start with so I got it easy. I tweeze and shave my brows. I don’t have any moustache so I don’t need to bleach or wax it. I have tried waxing my legs once, and I don’t want to do it again. When I was younger, I used to tweeze tiny hairs out of my armpits, but I ended up looking like a cock-eyed plucked chicken. My life definitely got much easier after I discovered the razor. I have never tried any epilators mostly because I don’t think I’d make full use of it. The weirdest thing is, I have just a few long and thick hairs on my toes. Very unsightly! So, I shave it away too.
For the more sensitive body parts, I did try it once… erm, or twice… when I was younger, out of curiosity I swear. It’s surprising how much protection hair can offer. Without it, sensitivity heightens, temperature cools down a little too Do you know how much it itches when the hair is growing back? Not to mention painful stubbles. I am not doing it again unless I absolutely have to. Want a bald cat? Go watch Austin Powers.
Also, it is necessary to shave before giving birth, but that might not be the case for c-sections (correct me I’m wrong because I had natural births for both children). It is so very different when someone else is doing it for you. I wanted to hide like an ostrich when the nurse told me to open wide and started shaving very quickly with a disposable razor. I reminded her a thousand times to be careful and she was obviously irritated. “Do you know how many I shave a day?” I remember her snapping. “It’s my first time doing this so spare me!” I retorted. Not a good thing when your (ahem) depends on her skills.
Anyway, enough stories for the day. Your turn. It can be a funny or a bizzare one, or maybe scary… anything is good. Oh, and if I deleted your comment, it means you’ve gone overboard by my standards. And that is REALLY overboard. LOL!
Let’s get it rolling!
