I’m sure most women have either shaved their legs, waxed, or maybe even both. What I want to know is, which method is more effective?
I usually shave every other day, but then by the next day my legs are stubbly. I can’t stand the stubbly feeling, so I decided to wax my legs so I’d have smooth legs for longer. (Or maybe I should just start shaving every day).
I bought a waxing kit at Wal-Mart and the directions say your leg hair has to be at least 2-5 mm for it to be effective. Now, I haven’t shaved since last weekend, so I admit, my legs are pretty hairy right now. My hair is longer than stubble, but not quite 2 mm. (Unless I’m measuring them wrong. I do tend to suck at measuring). My problem is, I hate being so hairy and waiting for the hair to grow long enough! I’ve come close to just giving up and shaving everything off.
I mean, what’s the point of waxing your legs, if you’re just going to have to wait so long for the hair to get long again? I mean, yeah, it’s nice to have super smooth legs for a long time and not have to shave for a while, but then doesn’t it defeat the purpose when you have to wait a couple weeks and be all hairy again? I’ve been wearing jeans to work instead of capris or shorts, and that is NOT cool in this 90 degree plus weather. (Pun intended). I also bought a hair removal cream at Wal-Mart to see if that works, though I am somewhat skeptical of a cream that removes hair.
I’ve heard that waxed legs are smooth for about 4 weeks, and then they need to be waxed again. In 4 weeks, will the leg hair be long enough to wax, or do you need to wait again? And after waxing, how long are the legs smooth before the hair grows back?
What do you Lovelies think? For those of you have waxed, do you like it? Would you recommend it? Or would you go back to shaving? What are some pros and cons of both?
