Waxing question

(1 Post)

I use a hot wax with strips on my underarms.
Prepare with body scrub, make sure there's no oil/cream/anti-perspirant.
I use a dusting of talc.
When I wax the hairs have the little 'lump' on the end (the hair bulb) so I know I'm not snapping the hair off at the roots.

But because I've got dark hair and pale skin I always get the 'five O'Clock shadow look'.
I've tried re-waxing as soon as the new hairs come through or letting it grow but no change.
Any suggestions? TIA
