What method of hair removal from the bekini area doesn't itch like mad when it grows back? I'd never be brave enough to go for a wax. I've tried shaving and that itches like buggary. I tried imack years ago, but can't remember if it itched when it grew back.
Do you know of anything at all that doesn't itch or leave tell tale red spots?

Oh and just a thought, how come when you trim your lady garden it grows back, but if you never trimmed it it wouldn't end up down to your knees. confused It's interesting as hair is dead, how does it know enough's enough?

Waxing. Really not that painful, especially if you have a little trim first. Best of all, laser. Did mine about 10 years ago ("extended" bikini line, not as drastic as a brazillian) and has needed very little attention since, occasionally plucked a few hairs with the tweezers, and the occasional brazillian before holidays.

I honestly don't find waxing particularly painful. (and I don't have a high pain threshold)

^^ No, me either to the painful waxing.

But usually its just shaving when i do my legs, underarms in the shower. It didnt itch that much when it grew back either, but everyone's different. I found it alot more convienient than having to go for a wax every couple of weeks.

Waxing takes time to build up a pain tolerance took a year off from waxing and it was eye watering the first time, after that you get better at tolerating the pain. I go for leg, bikini and eyebrow wax, used to have underarm as well.

I've told DH if we ever come into a little bit of money I'm going to get some laser hair removal, then we had a lengthly debate on what area first grin.

A friend had her hair lasered, she asked for money towards it for her 30th birthday/christmas present. I would be too embarrassed to ask, but it looks really good, she's very pale and dark haired.
