Waxing Your Armpits??? OUCH!

Hairy Ladies Raise your Hands!

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 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 :)

If you have any waxing tips, probs, or anything you'd like to share, please feel free to comment below!

a few days later, and my armpits still look great! i can't believe it, i love not having to shave! this rocks.... for special occasions!


  1. ouch! sounds too painful for me. i say just leave it to grow, sixties style - be free, man. peace! :)

  2. Blimey, don't think I would like to do it myself. I have had it done a few times by professionals and it doesn't hurt much at all. No where near as much as you'd think anyway x

  3. hey thanks for the advice, yeah i am definetly going to the pro's! and your right it doesn't hurt as much as you'd think!
