Hey girls! I have many Body issues. I can accept my body shape but I am having a hard time on accepting on my extra unwanted hair. I am hairy for a girl and I am very conscious about it. I am frequently waxing, shaving and what not to get rid of this unwanted hair but it affected my skin. it left a small bump. How frequent should I do this? Any tips ladies?

How often you wax depends on how fast the hair grows back, but usually can be anywhere between 2 up to 8 weeks, it differs with every person. It should cause any harm to the skin as long as the wax is at the right temperature. The small bump you have could possibly be a ingrown hair, to prevent these you should exfoliate frequently.

I would recommend laser hair removal. Though it's high maintenance and expensive, it is worth it in the long run. I only tried laser hair removal for my underarms and that was like back in 2009. Even now, I don't get thick hair in my underarms and I don't even shave because there's only small baby hairs growing in it. That's the advantage of laser hair removal. You can count on its long-term advantages. Every session is 8 weeks apart.

Hi there, same here! I am also hairy girl, specially when I was young and the hair at my legs are not in one direction, I mean it's a bit goes everywhere, maybe because I often wear jeans. I can't wear shorts or skirts cause of this other issues. I've never tried waxing my legs cause I am scared of making the hair strands twice the size and curly just like what I've seen with others But I've tried to shaved it once and I've noticed that there are no difference (maybe if I do it more often). To prevent me from thinking about my legs situation, I just don't wear shorts or skirts when leaving the house, I always wear jeans. I can't afford to shave or wax my legs more often cause I know that in less than a day, the hair will keep coming back.
