How does it work?! Also, does plucking make the hair darker and thicker as well?

It encourages more growth as even little young hairs gets shaves. it is more better to pluck one by one. Even though too much plucking will hurt and even result in darkening and having chicken skin like appearance in the arm pit. Some alternatives is to put some cream to remove the hairs as it falls naturally or to undergo more expensive treatment like hair laser removal or electrolysis..

Yeah, when I go out tomorrow I might buy some Veet. I heard there's a $100 machine that's take out as many hairs as a razor; but it plucks them out. *shivers*

Hi Rose, It must be very paiful by plucking your hair. I don't think it wil make the hair darker and thicker, I just worry that the hair won't grow up if you pluck it by pcs. LOL. Oh, by the way, why do you want to make your hair darker and thicker, I prefer my hair to be lessen as it is very hot here. Happy mylotting.
