First time Shaving your Legs..
July 28, 2012 2:14am CST
I remember my first time shaving my legs and it was not pretty. I was too young, asked my mother if I could do it and she said no. Well, I didn't like her answer and decided to take one of her razors and do it anyways! My legs looked very badly butchered when I was finished, I moved the razor in all directions and fast and my legs weren't very wet. What was your first shaving experience like?

Dear mylotter friend Jshean20 of Canada, We have a cultural activity at the time of day before wedding to remove hairs from the legs and other parts of the body where those are not desired. We put a BESAN putty (made of gram flour and mustard oil) and role it on the body slowly and slowly. You can also say it as a massage of bride's body. The activity is named as TAIL CHADAI. This activity continues for five to seven days after an interval of 24 hours and lasted just before a day of wedding. At a time, massage continue for a period of an hour and conducted by ladies under able supervision of oldest one. The things are kept confidential.

The first time I shaved my legs, I was 11 years old. It looked okay. My hairs are gone and my legs has gotten smoother. I liked the result actually. After that I shaved my legs 2 or 3 more times after the hairs grew. After 2 or 3 times, I stopped. I have gotten too lazy to shave now. Now, I don't shave anymore. It doesn't feel like I need to.

I was a very hairy girl. I had black hair and very pale skin, luckily my hormones balanced out. I always had some hair on my arms and legs, then I guess closer to puberty I grew more hair. Some kids at school teased me about this. My mom came in while I was in the bath one evening and tried to convince me to shave my legs, I was scared and awkward and aspy and I refused so she gently did it for me and I was fine. thats all i remember, overall she made it quite easy and pleasant for me -- good mom.
