I'm ridiculously hairy. I have genes to thank. Anyway, I bought an epilator (emjoi brand) and it HURTS. I can barely do it for more than 20 seconds and the area I was working on remains hairy.
Any one have some tips for this?
Same problem here. ;_;
I just shave whenever I need to. I hate it. >_>
Many would recommend that you shouldn't use it with more than two or three days' worth of hair growth, if you're using a decent epilator. Similarly, using it every two days or so from that point should help. Also, try stretching the skin, changing directions, and varying the speed you use it... sometimes it takes a while for the skin to get used to the sensation.
Also, I know it sucks to hear this... but sometimes epilators are better suited to certain types of hair (underarm, bikini line, leg, &c.). And just with any hair removal technique, exfoliate and moisturize.
Get some hair removal cream instead. Leave it of for 5-10 minutes, scrub off in the shower and youre set. Seriously, i done this about a month ago and the hair has only just started to grow back. It leaves the new hair softer too so its easier to do next time (at least it feels that way).
You can end up burning yourself with it though but thats only if youre fucking retarded.
What brand would you recommend? All the reviews I see online are really mixed/inconsistent.
>>584From my experience, hair removal cream doesn't get the roots.
Unless you've found some super-magic cream, in which case, please do tell! ;)
Anyway, most hair removal which pulls out the entire hairs (epilators, wax, sugar) works best with only a couple mm of growth.
Tugging close to the root is more successful than tugging from further up the hair.
Sorry about the late reply.
Im using "Veet hair removal cream with aloe vera and vitamin e". It works best on short hair. I've had little to no problems with it.Its lasted a long time regardless of whether it reaches the roots or not. I dont have alot of experience with other methods though, so maybe my input isnt that usefull.
http://www.inhousepharmacy.com/transgender/eflora.html there you go. Trust me :D
>>632I read about that stuff at tsroadmap, but doesn't it require you to be on a hormone regiment to work? (It kind of "reboots" your hairs to do what your body is telling them to do.)
And it's expensive as shit.
