I like how my legs are after shaving and doing it doesn't bother me much, but I think while it is winter and I can get away with some growth then I might as well get it waxed or epilated. My leg hair is very fine and very light anyway, and it already grows patchily so a few more waxes and I should only have to shave to catch the odd few hairs. Yay!

Does anyone have any experience with hair removal cream, actually? I've been thinking of using that stuff in summer rather than shaving just to see what the differences are, but I don't know anyone who uses it so I'm not sure what it's like.



EDIT: I briefly considered posting a picture of my leg hair... kind of glad I didn't since it would have been all top of the page and everything. :P Here, check out my new frames instead. (Pardon the slightly goofy look on my face.) Frames!

I used to use creams over shaving, but as it doesn't destroy the root, I have the same itchy problem as I do with shaving.

The creams/mousses/sprays are all dead easy to use, so long as you can stand the smell. Spray or smoothe on, wait, rinse, exfoliate, done!

now i hate that when I shave, I can never quite get the hairs on the back of my calves to disappear -- you can always see the root. It makes it look like I have abnormally large pores. I wish I could get rid of it!! But I am too lazy to try anything other than shaving like waxing or plucking or something...

Speaking of hair....I cut mine today. @.@ My head hair that is. This may not sound like a big deal, but my hair is very very very thick and extremly curly. I've had it just about destroyed by hairdressers so I have a lot of anxiety about it. So I started out slow, managed to get five layers in. Its actually pretty cute. I may clean it up a little more later on. ^^

I know what hair anxiety is like. *hugs* That is great that you got something you like! Thanks for the frame love too, guys. Hopefully I can put the script in tomorrow and have them ready for next week.

Going back to hair removal creams, pretty much what GhostWolfe said. I'd add on that from what I remember, they last longer than shaving but not quite as long as waxing. They're also entirely painless. You can get some that are scented, so they don't always smell too bad. The only problem I ever had was stealing the bathroom for long enough! Although there is one that your can use in the shower now that I've been meaning to try.
I generally prefer to wax rather than shave. I'm bad at not cutting myself.

vqcg - don't be silly, you are obviously not well. *frowns at vqcg until she stops being stubborn*

hair removal cream - they're fine, I never had a problem (although I still much prefer waxing). I mostly used to use it on my lip and sometimes under my arms although I did try that "use in the shower" one on my legs and it was rubbish, it didn't stay on at all.

@angell, I'm not sure at all but my gut instinct tells me you are just as likely to get ingrowns with elipation; the hair is going to be thinner, weaker and tapered when it grows back so isn't it going to have even more trouble breaking through the skin? Do you exfoliate your legs at all, cause if it is the reason you get bumpy red itchiness it will help to remove the dead skin cells so the hairs can come through the surfice more easily. Please note I may be talking total rubbish here, it is just my understanding of ingrown hairs and related bumpiness.


I waxed my legs last night for the first time in... like... three months? I want to start wearing my skirts a bit more. It is actually good to be smooth, it makes a nice change :)

£10 on a bladder infection. Go to the docs you'll get antibiotics and/or painkillers and you get to drink gallons of barley water.

Similarly, I have a kidney infection, well probably. The doc says infection despite the fact that I have NO symptoms of infection apart from PAIN, but he (rightly) says I am so unlikely to have stones or anything else we might as well assume I'm being weird and not getting all the symptoms. My wee is being analysed, so we will see.....
meanwhile: PAIN :(

£10 on it not being a bladder infection :P Bladder infections turn up with pain in urinating and increased frequency. Doesn't have much to do with abdominal pain as such. I've at at least 8 or so in the last year. Nasty things they are. But crowey, if they think it's a kidney infection (and that's pretty serious) they should give you antibiotics before they start analyzing, at least that's what they do here.

Yeh, I know they can't treat viruses, but the first idiot doctor gave me anti-diarrhoeals, which blocked everything up causing more pain. Then the second one said "dear god, we can't treat viruses so you need to get rid of it as soon as possible" - then promptly prescribed me laxatives. *sigh*

Also, since the lack of gorilla-leg love is making me sad, I'll post a pic of one of mine.

Colic? is that even a real disease? I thought it was code for "grumpy crying infant with no discernable symptoms" :oops: I hope you're feeling better soon vqcg.

I'm on Trimethoprim 200mg for the next week, and as much barley water as I can keep in me (can't stand cranberry) to try to flush it out.

*woe*

I'm not actually feeling too bad at all, considering...I'm still at work so I can't be that ill :lol: My friend who had nephritis once is freaking out though, bless him.

GO. TO. THE. DOCTOR. NOW.

Only a few bacterial UTIs will go away on it's own. Some will ascend your ureters and get into your kidneys which can then enter your bloodstream - you need antibiotics, and fast. If you wait you can end up with scarring on your urethra which will cause difficulties later on. I don't mean to scare you - but this is pretty serious.

If you can't get to a doctor for a while: increase your fluid uptake, and take urinary alkalizers which can reduce the stinging.

After the ordeal you may want to take some cranberry capsules, depending on the cause.

And dear girl, have a cookie (^__^)>O
I know how it feels oh so well.

Well, it's pretty much a description of a symptom rather than a disease ... acute abdominal pain like someone clenching and unclenching a fist inside you :(

But yeah, in infants it is used to describe the "grumpy crying infant with no discernable symptoms", because they *think* it's abdominal pain that causes it.

Doctor said I'd probably had gastro ... something or other, basically a tummy bug, although I maybe have a UTI on top of that.

Abdominal pain, diarrhea, some people vomiting, but not me..anyway, it lasted about 4 days, and I was going to go to the doctor today if it was still there, but I woke up this morning and felt a feeling I haven't felt in a few days ........ hunger!!!! yes yes yes !! eat eat eat...

well, I'm a looong way from North Carolina (UK) :)
but FOUR DAYS? I was going to go back to work today, I only didn't because I was convinced to see the doctor. Though I really didn't feel up to it. :? Hope I do tomorrow

Glad you're feeling better. Ah yes, that strange ... hunger thing. I managed to eat and keep down a Subway sandwich today, so, we'll see.

But that's the thing - I don't think hairy legs are a thing that shouldn't be discussed in 'polite' company. I don't think there's anything particularly off-putting about them.

I do agree that not every woman needs to shave. I don't. I also agree that not everything we do is a conspiracy against (or for, for that matter) feminism. I'm not a feminist or anti-feminist, to begin with. (More of a humanist.)

shinybaby wrote:i don't know much about the history of hair removal, especially from a specifically female or feminist perspective, but i was at the ROM (Royal Ontario Museum) not that long ago and found an interesting tidbit of information: in Ancient Egypt, the men at least (and perhaps both sexes, i don't honestly remember if it said) removed all of their body hair.


Hmm, interesting. It's easy to understand though, because in the dusty desert, I imagine it would be much easier to keep clean without a lot of hair. Modern shaving practices are a little more vague, since it's much easier to keep hairy areas clean as long as you are hygienic.

Also, I am jealous of your ROM visit. It's been years since I was there. I loved the Egypt and ancient China displays!

Agreed. I'm in the camp that prefers my legs without hair, though. Speaking of which, yesterday I had my first appointment to get my legs lasered.* :D

Ballet is where my sig comes from (in that once I could do the beautiful moves whenever I want, and now I need to get rid of gravity first).
I has legs, sometimes they has hair, other times not. I shave for skirts most of the time but no more than 3 times a week.

It took about an hour. The doctor used a pencil to divide my legs into portions about the size of my hand and used that to keep pace. I felt it more on places with fine hair and thin skin (like ankles and toes) than places with thicker hair or fatter skin. On places with scars I felt nothing. I had to remember to keep my muscles relaxed because sometimes (and I don't know why) the zaps would cause a muscle to twitch just a little if I didn't.

I don't think I could laser any other part of my body. Face was enough for me.

Though, if I can find someone who does actual electrolysis, I'll probably book an appointment to get the few stray hairs on my face.

thats a dare sebeka!

On the topic of bumpyness and itch after shaving: I hope I'm not kicking in open doors, but have you tried WET shaving? by which I mean shaving cream and/or shaving under the shower? I shaved my legs dry once, in a terrible rush, and ZOMG itch!

I get itchy and bumpy when I shave my vayaya more than once a week. I shave my underarms mostly once like my legs and female bits, but sometimes during summer twice.

I've tried shaving cream, but after trying it out on a small spot on my calves first, I thought it was fine and safe, then tried my whole leg, and it fucking burned!!
I left it on because it wasn't that bad, but the hairs didn't come off. Grr.

*hugs* for all the ill people!! must be suck-y :(
Im a bit sniffly but no real reason to complain. I feel fine. and happy ^^

but anyway, as soon as I got un-ill, my hubby got sicker :(...poor boy. So I gave him a massage with lavender, eucalyptus and rosemary oils to hopefully ease his tension and get him to sleep through the whole night for once...

...i hate it when we're sick

Moo wrote:@angell, I'm not sure at all but my gut instinct tells me you are just as likely to get ingrowns with elipation; the hair is going to be thinner, weaker and tapered when it grows back so isn't it going to have even more trouble breaking through the skin? Do you exfoliate your legs at all, cause if it is the reason you get bumpy red itchiness it will help to remove the dead skin cells so the hairs can come through the surfice more easily. Please note I may be talking total rubbish here, it is just my understanding of ingrown hairs and related bumpiness.

I don't believe the problem is ingrown hairs, because none of them are ingrown, just itchy as all fuck.

Being sick at the same time sucks.

On the topic of hair removal. I have been pondering getting my eyebrows waxed. They aren't that bad but I don't really like sporting the whole unibrow look and I don't enjoy plucking. I hate spending money on beauty treatments though. It is probably related to my crazy aunt making comments about how fat/pimply/not girly enough I am. I suppose I still have that rebellious streak in me! :)

I wish I had someone here to look after ME like that! Bet your husband really appreciates it.

It's 7:04. Plan on eating some breakfast in about 10 minutes and then going into work as long as it stays down.
Has anyone else noticed - the longer you're off work, the less you want to go back? :(

I actually had period cramps for the first time in a while last night. Well, with me they're not period cramps they're PMS cramps. I think it was probably mostly the paracetamol that helped but I prefer to think most of it was down to this guy, who has a microwavable wheat bag in his tummy.

These are incredible, but you have to be careful to let them cool down *completely* before re-microwaving. If they build up too much heat, they can (in really rare cases) catch fire.

I have always wanted one of those things but never have been successful in acquiring one.
