I used to have very fine hair on my legs but since I wasn’t contented as what I wanted was hair-free legs, I started shaving the hair off. Unfortunately, I realized that the texture of the hair becomes thicker after shaving it. So what happened the fine hair became very thick unwanted hair on the legs and I had to shave it day after day instead.
I was getting frustrated so I tried every other method I could afford: depilatory creams, waxing, and threading. Depilatory creams are messy, not to mention foul-smelling! It was horrible! I don’t know about you but I’ve tried so many hair removing creams out there even the expensive ones and they’re all harsh on my skin, I get burns and again, the smell was awful! If you’re using one you know that you have to leave it on your skin for a few minutes and so you have to bear with the odor as well.
As for waxing, I tired both hot and cold wax at home and they’re also very messy. I burned myself once with hot wax and cold wax didn’t work at all. It was only painful! The only wax that worked with me was the ones done at the salons which are not very convenient and are also quite expensive. I wanted to do something that I can do myself.
I tried threading and only from the salon as well. It was painful! The results were great and lasted a few weeks but every time I go back to have the hair on my legs threaded off, I cry. Literally! As in, tears are rolling down my eyes in pain. So nah, all these are not what I was willing to deal with for the rest of my life. So I looked for other options.
Fortunately, there are epilators and other devices out there that work and provides lasting results. I tried just one epilator and the very first time I experienced it I thought it was like threading. The pain was actually the same. But since it was the first most expensive device I bought, I tried it the second time, and the third, and then the pain was gone and I was enjoying longer results since since.
There are newer products that are actually better than epilators now. There are laser devices for home use, see this reference here, and there’s Nono. This device is unlike any other hair removal products out there as the process is painless and the results last longer.
