I've always only shaved the bottom half of my legs upto my knee.

Noticed recently I have horrible long hair patches on the back of my legs.

Is it just me or do some of you shave your full legs?

How do I shave the back top of my legs and if I do I'm going to have to do it forever aren't I as its going to come back worse?

I shave to just above my knees. I don't really have long hairs at the back though. Why would shaving make them worse? Easier to shave the top while standing up probably.

I find once I start shaving / waxing the hairs come back longer thicker and darker.

I've been waxing my chin for 2 years and used to only have a couple very fine light hairs there big black curly hairs now so have to wax every 2 weeks

I've always shaved my whole legs. But then I am pretty hairy.

Why not get them professionally waxed?

I have always shaved all of my legs but I have thick, dark hair that grows very quickly. I epilate now instead though.

Shaving does not make hair grow back thicker/darker, that is a myth.
