    I was sick of shaving my legs. They are really hairy and it made getting ready for the beach an ugly, long task. One day I was shopping and saw a french depilatory cream that was supposed to be easy to apply and easy to remove. It had liek a plastic blade and it looked like regular shaving.

    I followed the instructions, applied the cream from my thighs to my ankles. I waited the 2 minutes and then bent down to remove the cream with the plastic blade tool. The hair did come off and quite easily too. No nicks, no miseed areas. it was looking real good.

    Jumped into the shower to rinse off, legs looked smooth but as I was looking down I notice huge clumps of hair swirling by the drain. What the heck? My legs were hairy but not anywhere near that long and…that’s when I realized – and looked down to my lady bits. There were missing spots of hair all over the place.

    When I had bent down to remove the depilatory cream from my calves and thighs I picked up the cream in areas I didn’t want touched. Long story short, I had to shave that whole area and that was a NIGHTMARE. I spent the next two weeks of my life in itch hell and apply cortizone to the raised bumps to deal with the terrible itching. By the way, didn’t make it the beach that day :(

    Easy hair removal turned out to be too easy! Back then it was far from funny but I can now laugh about it.
    Of course I have sworn off any depilatories – don’t want a replay of that day.

    After years of tweezing and waxing my eyebrows, I decided to utilize one of those vibrating, pen shaped razors you see on those wonderful infomercials. It sounded great! Just a few seconds a day and you’ll achieve beautifully shaped brows! No pain and it can be used on other more discreet areas……well, I bought it hook, line and sinker. After my first usage I was very pleased, until during my makeup application I realized that while I had removed my unwanted stray brows, I had also removed half of the length of my eyelashes! Seems the blade should be a tad more compact….and I can tell you from experience, no amount of mascara can make stubbly eyelashes look even close to normal.

    A few years ago my husband gifted me a spa day (mani/pedi/facial and massage). When I got to the spa I was talked into a full leg waxing. I was scheduled for a wax in just a few days (at another salon) but thought ” why not, i’m here now and…”.

    The lady who waxed me must have been in training, she dropped very hot wax on my legs, somehow got the muslin strips stuck – something I never thought possible and when she yanked the strip I swear upon my first born she took the very top layer of skin. I screamed so loud that two other spa techs came running in to see what the commotion was all about. I was in tears and I could hear them chattering about what had just happened.

    I thought for sure they would dismiss her and replace her with a knowledgable tech – my mistake. They let her go on without even asking me if it was okay. Thankfully, her method improved and after that terrible episode and I was spared further pain.

    After she was done she applied some lotion to my legs to calm the redness and told me I was ready. I donned my black pants on as fast as I could and bolted. I just wanted to get out of there.

    Later that evening, I walk into the bedroom, take off my pants and proceed toward the dresser when I hear my husband gasping. “Honey, your legs are spotted black and there’s green stuff on the back of your thighs”. I ran to the mirror and horror of horrors, there’s black stains and fibers dotting my legs. Attached to my legs were clumps of wax! The green stuff appeared to be the lotion the wax tech used to calm the post-wax redness. And the black – well that was from my pants mixed in with the wax.

    Hairy Fun- Not!!~~

    So usually a normal woman thinks she has a lot of hair when it’s light blond and really fine and simply coats her legs every 14 days.

    It’s unheard of to find a woman who’s young and as hairy as a guy in his 30’s with raging hormones… nonetheless that’s what a California esthetician ran into a little while back when I came in to rid myself of an overactive and high ranking testosterone cursed blanket of hair covering my body. The comments I got ranged from the serious to the silly- in the endeavor to find out how such a woman could produce so much hair!

    It’s simple I said- ” Women are just now finding out so much more about a little known- factoid.. PCOS(Polycystic ovarian syndrome).”

    To their utter amazement after about 2 1/2 hours of the sheer torture of waxing, plucking, sweating and screaming for both technicians and myself- the caveman leg look was a thing of the past-I looked normal for about 72 hours of my wedding & honeymoon timeframe.

    The real surprise was our wedding night- Let’s just say it went smoothly… which was a memorable treasure, because it’s been more than prickly since!

    They keep my story with before and after photos for the blonde women who scream during a brazilian bikini wax- so they really have something to scream about!

    Meanwhile – I cry – during the movie FUR- with Nicole Kidman- and Robert Downey JR. I might have played Robert Downey’s character with a tad bit more realistic fervor!!

    Yours in Hirsutism~

    When I was little I saw my mother going into the bathroom with some supplies. She had a pot and some pieces of cloth. My sister and I were not sure what going on, so we promptly camped out in front of the bathroom door and started the round of questioning…Mooooooom what are you doingggggggg…..leave me alone i’m busy…But what are you dooooooing….leave me alone i’m …. EEEEEEEYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! When we heard her scream we rushed in to see her hopping around the bathroom naked from the waist down fanning herself. Then she jumped in the the bathtub, turned on the water and started splashing her crotch. We were laughing hysterically and she was yelling GET OOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUTTTTTTTTTT!!! Apparently she had heated the wax to lava and promptly applied it to her bikini area. This has obviously scarred me for life as I always cringe when I hear about a bikini wax.

    I was sick of paying for someone else to turn my eyebrow into two and decided I would take matters into my own hands. I decided to buy a do-it-yourself microwaveable wax kit. I definitely did not think things through, it was a complete disaster.

    I first off started by using my microwave DOWNSTAIRS to warm the wax and to do the waxing upstairs. I microwaved the wax for the amount of time on the box, ran upstairs to find it was not melted enough. Let’s just say that after I got it melted I burned off many calories running up and down the stairs to keep it melted.

    I found out quickly that I should have cut the large strips into smaller ones as I thought I could just reuse the large one. After I pushed up the strip to use the unused section, rubbed, and then pulled, I felt some of the hair on my head ripped out too. When I had pushed the used strip up, the previously attached wax pulled some of my hair out.

    Then, I thought that flipping the strip to use the unused side would be a better idea. I quickly realized how stupid that was as soon as I went to glide my finger on the strip and ended up realizing you can’t glide a finger well on wax from the previous application.

    You would think an intelligent woman like myself would have stopped there, but with only one eyebrow done I proceeded to do the other one. I was sick of running up and down the stairs, the wax was a little too cool to use, and I could just feel my skin and hair pulling/tugging with every application. With my eyes tearing up with the pain, I couldn’t really see what I was doing. I took a glob of wax that was too big it dropped on my eyelashes and I ended up with my eyelashes sticking together. I panicked looking for the solution to take the wax off and was desperately in fear of opening my eye as I new I would rip my eyelashes off. I am happy to report that the solution provided actually worked and I did not have to apply fake eyelashes. I did however get wax on a part of my eyebrow I did not intend to and had to redraw some eyebrow in with liner in hopes no one would notice.

    The counter and mirror had wax all over. I ended up using most of the removal solution to clean the counter tops.

    A few days later, my work of art eyebrows started to peel horribly from burning them and pulling the top layer of skin off. It was beautiful, drawn in eyebrows with bright red flaking skin.

    Moral of the story: Pay someone to do the waxing for you if you don’t want to redraw your eyebrows, clean up a huge wax mess, and not fear you are about to have your eyelashes ripped out.

    Let me start off by telling you that I’m a pretty hair girl. By hairy I mean the boys in school used to pull my arm hair and call me teen wolf. This is something that I find rather amusing in my adult years, yet I still find myself wishing I didn’t have to deal with this particular problem.

    Last summer I was going on a trip to Lake Powell and didn’t want to have to worry about hair removal while I was there. I stocked up on cold wax strips and some delapitory cream and got to work. This was my first time using cold wax strips and was actually quite surprised with how well they worked and how tolerable the pain was. I started with my arms first. I felt like I was doing pretty well at first, but then I started to notice not all the hair was coming up and I was growing little blood droplets all over my arms. After I “finished” waxing, I still had hair all over and did a combo of plucking and shaving to remove the rest. Next up with the wax, my upper lip and the bikini line. Didn’t go off quite as planned, but I survived. Then the delapitory cream for my under arms and legs.

    The next day, I woke up to a bunch of tiny whiteheads on my upper lip and red bumps on my bikini line. Not exactly a success. The hair removed with the delapitory cream grew back just as quickly as if I had shaved it. So pretty much all that work put me worse off than if I had just left it alone and did what I normally do. I laugh at myself for putting so much work into it and getting no results.

    I don’t really know if this counts as funny lol but I tried to use Sally Hansen hair remover lotion on my legs without doing a test patch first. My legs started burning like hell and blood started coming out of my pores. It was so horrible. I jumped in the shower to wash it off right away but that made it burn worse. I still have a little scar on my shin because I was covered in burns on my legs for like 3 weeks.
