Shaving?

eri86 eri86
I can't afford to get waxed, and I'm even going to consider waxing myself. That would be a disaster waiting to happen.

I have shaved before, with no incident, and I uses a shave gel designed specifically for shaving down there so the skin doesn't get irritated.

But the smooth feeling never lasts more than a day. Within 24 hours I can already feel the hair growing back, and it itches. And after the itchy comes the prickly feeling for a few days.

How can I make that smooth feeling last after shaving, without having to shave every other day? Because that does cause irritation.

My wife shaved every day - until she had her laser treatments. To her it was like shaving her underarms - which she did every day - until she got that area lasered as well.

I know the feeling but I'm too chicken about waxing !! I just try to shave down there everyday.

Veet has this new thing out with waxing but it is not supposed to hurt. I am considering trying it myself to see how it is.

I've been really scared to try waxing as well! I usually just trim, and then shave only on "special occasions" because I'm so sensitive down there.

I get major irritation if I shave every day. There's no real way to make the smoothness last with waxing or doing something similiar, but you might be able to shave every day if you can figure out a routine that works with your skin to reduce the irritation.

I'd recommend stuff like baby powder, Coochy shave cream and aftershave protecting spray (can't remember the exact name) and using very very sharp razors.

I waxed myself and tried sugar waxing -- nothing but bad came of it for me. Not saying that will be the same for you, but I experienced extreme, pretty unbelievable bruising. The looks of my crotch -- omg. You'd think I was beaten! It happened most times I ever used wax or the sugar stuff. I finally gave up and bought an epilator -- been using that sucker over a year with amazing results ever since! I love it. I spent about $43 on it at CVS and it's really been the best solution for me.

The smoothness being short-lived. Same problem I had. Everyone else said they'd only have to sugar or wax once a week or less! Me? every other day. And there was always, always still hair left that wouldn't be jerked out for me. I don't know how people do it. But epilating, I only do every 3 days. By the second day, I might have a couple pricklies from hairs that weren't fully out of the skin when I epilated last, but I'm totally smooth for at least one-two days. If I didn't mind several pricklies, I could epilate just once a week. But I do care. They bug me.

Another thing I love about epilating -- no itching. It doesn't get hard and stubbly like it does with shaving, either. The only downside is the amount of ingrown hairs that come from hair removal (if you remove the full hair/follice with it.) Waxing caused me more ingrowns than epilating, but the thing about epilating is that I can see the hairs right under the skin, but they hardly ever get bad and painful like they did with waxing.

Oh, and no razor burn!

I tried Veet and other similar ones once. Veet took away about 10% of the hairs on my crotch, but never all of them, or even half of them. Then, one day, it left me with a severely burned crotch. It was awful! My vagina is still scarred, literally. It was oozing clear stuff and blood & I'd only left it on for 3 1/2 minutes. I had used it for 5 minutes in the past, but for some reason, it ate right through my skin that last time. I remember the pain. I was horrified when the burning started & I jumped in the tub and turned on the shower head, which is removeable & spraying my crotch off, to try and remove the veet caused it to like activate even more or something & I could literally feel my skin being burned away. The next morning, I woke up with my shorts stuck to the oozing open wound. I used to be one of those people who would just do anything to get rid of hair, but I am telling you -- Veet is bad stuff! Those chemicals are so smelly that they'd give me a migraine. Why I still put it downstairs is beyond me. But seriously, I would even go so far as to say don't try it unless you are desperate. And even then, I would not go there again.

Okay. I will shut up.
