  • Plucking? I can't see that well under my arms to pluck anything, I think shaving is a better solution.

  • I use a trimer under my left arm. I had an awful infection, and it stemmed from an infected hair follicle because of shaving. I shave my right arm. I don't have the patience to pluck, and OUCH!!!!

  • I would be here until next week if I plucked,, I usually shave, but have waxed them before...I get a 5 o'clock shadow,,lol, so waxing is the best, but in a pinch a razor will do.

  • i also had it shaved but same problem, my underarm hairs grew thick and longer and it smelled. i also trim it sometimes and follicles cameout bigger with bruises. I also tried wax and it felt goof but it is very expensive.

  • Who has the time to pluck? And how could you see? Just shave it takes one minute in the shower.
