Let's Talk Hair



I'm not talking about the hair on your head I'm talking about hair pretty much anywhere else. Particularly, legs, for right now.

Some of us are shavers--- I highly recommend Gillette Venus Embrace. It's smooth and gets every unwanted hair. There's a green aspect too because it is refillable, so you don't have to dispose of the unwanted plastic when the blade dies out. 
Another option (for legs only) are men's face shavers. They're gentle enough for a man's face, but they're a little rougher and more robust, so they work right on woman's legs 

Shaving is natural and a quick fix, but if you want real results, I say WAXING is the way to go. 

There's a couple of ways to complete the task.


PROFESSIONALLY- You can walk into any nail salon, and there is a waxing room. Pay like $10-20 and your legs will be hair free for about a week before little stubble grows back! The only con is that you don't get to control the pain.

PERSONALLY- It takes a lot to inflict pain on yourself, but at least you get to control it. You can go hair by hair or make it quick and painless.  It lasts about a week before ANY hair grows back. Since you're pulling out the hair in its entirety, it takes longer for it to grow again. 

I recommend SurgiCare Wax Hair Removal. It's hypoallergenic, doesn't leave any irritating pieces or skin patches behind, and is not itchy after use. Comes with sticks and strips for personal preference and you can get about six total uses out of a box.

I DO NOT recommend the Sally Hansen brand. I know too many victims of this "wax" product. It is way to sticky and sticks to your skin and tools. Also, the wax is durable and has been known to lift a layer of skin while leaving behind red streaks from recently pulled wax. I do not recommend the strips, the wax, the healing lotion, the cream, any of it. I think their formula needs correcting unless they are okay with a narrow demographic with reptile skin.

Last resort and this better be like a stranded-on-an-island-and-the-only-thing-you-want-to-do-is-get-the-hair-off-your-legs option, is Nair. Not only is Nair smelly and messy but its expensive and known to leave behind skin burns and make your skin more sensitive in the area Nair is applied. Your leg skin is tough skin as it is, by weakening that part of your skin you're losing a valuable asset on your body. Legs should look sexy, not blotchy.
