So I have recently had an obsession with wanting to wax my armpits for the summer. I feel like sometimes it looks like by the end of the day I have a 5 o'clock shadow under there! Dark Haired ladies do you hear me?! Anyway, I am definetly going to go to a professional, but I had time today and tried to wax with my eyebrow wax.
Difficulties when trying to wax your OWN armpits:
• Its Hard to see! And looking in the mirror doesnt really help, because you can't get close enough.
• The hair goes in all directions
• It hurts...at first
• You Start Sweating!!
It did work, I didnt get all the hair off because some was shorter and was harder to wax. My wax came with a soothing cream that definetly helped after. DONT use aloe, I tried that in the past, and it burned. Before I waxed, right after my shower, I used rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball to remove excess deodorant, and sweat. I really wanted to try waxing myself, just incase it really burned for days after, or I had a bad reaction. As of now, it feels okay, after an hour later.
It was a good first attempt, I think I am going to leave it up to the professionals now. The Fun of being a woman! (who actually cares about hairy armpits :)
