When my husband and I had our boat, (when I was in my twenties)I used
nair, for my legs and bikini line. I used it enough for a few yrs. that the
hairs on my bikini line started growing inward, creating very painful sores, or not so gross, ingrown hairs! It was terrible to say the least! I went to a dermatologist, she said no more nair, cotton panties, and a topical alcohol!
My aunt came down from Chicago, she had been traveling to the islands
and was getting waxed (bikini line) she said she developed the same thing,
and called it vahiculitious(can't spell that word)
She had to give it up also. And if used in excess, all depilitories will eventually train your hairs to turn around and grow inward! ouch! so, be careful using them!
I'm a hair stylist, once at my shop, my partner talked me into growing my hair out under my arms, during the summer, I did, it was gross, she was going to wax them , the day came and she didn't have the right kind of cloth that
you use when waxing, I forgot the name, anyway, I didn't know it, so here
we go,, she and I couldn't quit laughing for the hair that was under my arm, and i couldn't quit because of the mere fact of what she was about to do to me, and she couldn't quit because she was having
sheer pleasure in the torture of it! She spread the wax....... she put the strip on top of it and started the rubbing and patting.............and when she went to pull that sorry strip
of whatever off I went with it..............it hurt so bad
it didn't remove any hair!!!!!!!!!!! It was funny!!!!!!!!!!!! We still laugh about that now!!
She did get the other cloth and we did do again and believe me, it worked!
It was pretty cool, I didn't shave for the rest of the summer! And I shave my underarms everyday, and I hate that! There was no way
she was doing my legs, boy she wanted to though!ha ha
I just wish I was one of those girls whose underarms looked so smooth no trace of hair, or bums! Not me and if I try a new razor, I will get burned and have the red bums! I have to be so careful! anyway, a good ole heavy mens
razor is my favorite!
