Weird question, re: waxing (ladies) - Page 2

post #31 of 38
I am not a wimp, but for some reason I've never been able to handle waxing! I only recently started getting regular eyebrow waxing (I'm 37 now) and that was a big step! I can't even imagine waxing my bikini area!!!
I've always used Veet etc with good results.

I have a question: why would a thirteen year old have to wax their bikini area?
My thoughts exactly. Kids need to be kids and IMHO there is no reason to be waxing bikini areas or even shaving legs etc. Heck, I wasn't allowed to do any of that until I was 15 years old!

Kids are being forced to grow up way too fast these days!

This is your opinion, but that is not what the OP asked for. She did not ask for opinions on how to raise her children, and this is not an IMO thread "to wax or not to wax". This is a mother, concerned about the well being of her child. If YOU don't want your daughter to shave (if you have a daughter), fine, but please let's think twice before judging someone's parenting here - this can be hurtful. This is HER daughter we are talking about, not some kid we heard of on the news. I am not a mod, but I guess I can ask... please let's keep this on topic

I realize that. And I wasn't telling her how to raise her child. I was simply stating that I think kids are growing up way too fast these days. In no way was I putting blame on the mother.

I do realize it is the sign of the times and that Hollywood and peer pressure are the root cause. But to me that doesn't make it right. Children need time to be children. Bikinis, shaving, waxing pubic areas etc, are grown up things. I'm sad that kids aren't getting the chance they need to be actual kids without feeling the need to bow to peer pressure or be made fun of. That was all.

It is so much more gentle. Also, if it's applied wrong, it can be wiped off with a warm wet cloth. It also goes on warm, not hot so there is little chance to burn yourself unless you over heat the sugar liquid. In addition to that, if you apply wax and make a mistake there is nothing you can do except rip it off and live with the mistake until the hair grows back. With sugar if you apply it wrong you can wipe it off with a warm cloth, dry the area and reapply it again. So mistakes can be undone.

It's also good for all areas of the body including pubic area, arm pits, facial hair, legs, arms etc.

In the summer I sugar my arms.

The only type of hair that the sugar doesn't remove is the really thick coarse hair that is on the face that comes with men's beards and in women with hormone changes. For those types of hair on my face (and alas I do have some on my chin), I use a home wax kit. But for brows and everywhere else I use the body sugar.

I started with Alexandria Body Sugaring. I tried NADS but didn't like it at all. It's too stiff and sticky and really messy to use. The Alexandria Body Sugar is more like liquid honey.

One thing that I've found that helps with the razor bumps is using cheap hair conditioner instead of soap or shaving lotion. It does clog your razor so you may go through them faster, but it does help to elimate the bumps and razor burns. I usually just get a cheap bottle at the dollar store and it will last me a long time.

I tried a home waxing one time...has anyone gotten the email about the woman that tried to wax her bikini area? I didn't get QUITE that far, but it was bad!

I don't like to shave my bikini area because I get a rash that takes a few days to go away and it is very irritating. I have also tried to wax once and it didn't go well and left my skin super irritated.

I use my hubby's beard and mustache trimmer. It is very good and I can trim to any length I want and use the close blade to trim the visible stuff.

even if her daughter does wear a one piece, her pubes will still he hanging out the sides!

My mother was one of those that didn't let me shave for a long time because it makes the hair grow back thicker, and she did not believe in waxing, epilating or laser treatment!

I started growing breasts when I was 6, i ran down the stairs and said to mum "look look they are getting bigger!" by the time i was 11 I was already wearing a bra and was a B cup. I got my period when I was 10.
Through primary school kids teased me because of my hairy legs, in high school i finally started doing it but mum was angry at me, by the time i was 14 mum had bought me an epilator!
I think it is great that you are bonding with your daughter like this.
If she doesn't want all of her hair removed she can just get the sides waxed and just trim down the hairs.
What works for me instead of shaving use a special electric rasor made by Braun, (this rasor thing is designed that it cannot cut your skin as it does not touch it) it is like a pencil stick, i first wash my self and then sit on the toilet as i find it much easier to manuever to get the hairs all gone! Plus there is no mess to clean up
When ever i shave "down there" i usually cut my self if im in the shower!

So what I am saying is good on you!
