1 Bump

What is the best hair removal method for the bikini area?

I have tried shaving of course and my skin is so sensestive I get shave bumps and itch for days after. I recently tried Nair too and that gets most of it but still not the results I want for total removal. HELP PLEASE boyfriend coming home from Iraq soon...really want to please him...

  • Oh and I don't know if anyone else had this problem with waxing, but it never lasts as long as they say it will. I am usually stubbly within a week, so that is why I only recommend a good wax as a pre-cursor to starting an eplilating routine. Because getting that first removal is the hard part, then you just use the epilator before bed or in the shower every few days or so and it doesn't hurt, and you are always "freshly waxed." But either way, definitely exfoliate exfoliate exfoliate! I use a natural fiber scrubby puffer (not the nylon soft ones one of the tan rough ones) and I recently got the dove exfoliating bar of soap which I do like. But if you are prone to ingrowns the Neutragena acne body wash works really well because of the salicylic acid in it. Good luck. Hope this all helps!

  • I know Pure Romance sells coochy, and it can be used as a hair conditioner ;) In the past I have used wax, and I agree with the PP that Surgi Brazilian Wax kit is the way to go for at home waxing. I have experienced Gigi, Sally Hansen and Nair and all of them are terrible. The cost of a Brazilian in my area is $100 and there are only 2 salons within about 35 miles who do them. I have switched from waxing to Epilating with a Braun Silk-epil Xpressive. I LOVE it! But Epilating is not for everyone so if you are intolerant to pain, I would say shell out the cash for a Brazilian wax first, and then if you want to keep it up for cheap, invest in a good wet/dry epilator. Using it in the shower cuts down on the pain a lot and using Bikini Zone Medicated GEL afterward takes away the pain and the redness. I have very sensitive skin and the GEL works miracles. it used to take 3+ days for my skin to go back to normal now 1.

  • what you need to do is let nair stay on there for just a lil longer. it works really good for me. or you can get laser hair removal done, that way it will never grow back.

  • It costs about $30-$40 to do it at a salon and its well worth it. I agree with the coochie cream idea for shaving, but its essentially conditioner, so if you want to go the cheap route, buy a bottle of conditioner to use for shaving. I only shave with conditioner, it leaves your skin really smooth.

  • Personally, i agree with waxing. But you need to be careful with the brand of wax you use if your gonna do it at home. NEVER go with any sally hansen products. If you go to wax, use Surgi brand wax, and i'd recommend the brazilian wax kit. It has the pre-epilation oil that you put on first so the wax doesn't stick to the skin much. The sally hansen wax only pulls off about 3 hairs and leaves you very gooey. There's nair wax as well but it hurst worse than the surgi wax and didn't work as well. Surgi doesn't use the muslim strips, it's a waxy substance that you heat up in the jar it comes in, put it on, leave it on for about 30 seconds until it's tackey, and then pull it off when it's tackey, but if you leave it on to long it will get hard. And if it gets hard, then it hurts, but it's the best product i've found.
