Question, about shaving legs...

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
To all the women here( )ok well men too-if they shave. How often do you have to shave? It seems like I am shaving like every 2-3 days and I get so annoyed with it!! But I have to do it because of the black stubbles that grow back, and in the summer I think it would look kinda nasty if I didnt do so...lol...so how about you all? How often are ya shaving??

since i am blondish...i shave about every 4-5 days...it's too annoying to do it more than that because I have a hard time shaving in the shower since we don't have a bathtub--I am soooo ready to move

Ok well in the winter I shave about every 5 days.

But in summer, shorts or not, I shave everyday. I LOVE IT!

I just have to have soft legs. It's important in the summer for me for some reason, just to have soft legs. And plus, I rub my legs alot and it's so awesome if thier all nice & soft and luxorious!

I should shave every other day or every 2 days. But I HATE it. It's such a pain, and takes forever. So I usually put if off for a day or 2 extra. I try to time it right so that if I'm wearing shorts out of the house I'll shave before then. But hubby hates it when I don't shave... I think he just likes to complain about it though...it's not like he ever notices my calves ! I could be footless and he wouldn't notice!

I shave every 3-5 days too...I'm a weirdo though, the hair on my thighs are blonde and the ones on my calves grow back brown -meaning I have to shave them more often.

well, honestly if I'm not going to be wearing shorts, and that rarely happens, I'm more of a capri kinda girl, I don't really shave, if i do wear the capris I'll just shave my calves In the summer I do a full good shave about every 2 weeks... I'm not very hairy so its so as bad as it sounds in the winter? forget it

I shave either everyday or every other day. Lee gives me really hard time when I get stubbly!! Plus I don't like the way it feels!

Everyday, or every other - I LOVE having soft, silky legs, I hate it when I have stubbly legs!

When I remember???? Lately it seems like the hair doesn't grow very fast...perhaps a symptom of perimenopause??? Anyhow there are parts of my legs like the back of the calf's that there isn't much hair at all so it doesn't take too long.

I've been trying to keep my mouth shut. It's working, but unfortunately, I don't type with my mouth.

No digital cam for me. So by the time I get my disposable cam done, it'd be like 3 weeks down the line by the time I posted pics of my legs. But I SURE WOULD! I love THEM! So soft. And silky...They have such great shaving gel/lotion. mmmm.....I love myself.

I have never shaved my legs, I only manage to grow about three hairs on each leg so it didn't seem worth the bother.
post #16 of 24
I have blonde hair so I can let it go and shave every 4-5 days, but I shave every day or every other day because I don't like the stubble feel. Plus I don't want to subject my man to feeling it, lol, but he says it doesn't bother him.

Have you tried the new Sally Hansen instant wax strips? They are awesome!!!

When I used to shave, I'd do it every day in the summer. Sometimes I would push it to every other day but by then it started to show.
However, even if I shaved every day, it would have stubly legs by the end of the day. I HATED it.

Now I use an electric epilator (like this: http://www.fabaocanada.com/hair-removal/epilators.htm ) and it's the only thing that will allow me to have legs that are more or less smooth. Now if I could only stop having so many ingrown hairs!
I also wax sometimes but I don't like having to wait for the hair to be long enough to wax. I have very dark and coarse hair and very fair skin.

By the way, if anyone wants info on different hair removal methods, here's a really good website:

I have to shave every couple of days (every other would be best). I also only wear capris, so I usually just shave from the knee down every couple of days and the whole leg every couple of weeks.

In the winter I shave about once a week.

Depends on what I am wearing, I will shave every day I wear something shorter, but if I wear full length pants every 2-3 days

During the summer I shave about every 3 days sometimes more if needed but most times it is not needed. But during the winter I usually shave about once a week since I am a stay at home mom and only have to get dress up for church on Sunday Mornings.

Heehee, I shave once a week..my hair is really blond, and I have a long term boyfriend who must deal with the leghair because he already loves me

I shave probably 6 days out of the week, sometimes five. I have found that if you keep using that Aveeno positively smooth lotion daily it does help!
