Hair Hair and more Hair
Hey guys i am a fairly young bb (19) with no competition experience. I want to start competeing next year cause i do not feel truely ready yet. But I have one thing holding me back, i am a ver hair guy with it covering 99% or my legs, chest and forearms. If any one can give me some advice about a good method to remove hair ( iv tried shaveing and grew back so fast i had to do it the next day again). Any input would be great, thanks

I don't know what most guys do but...
Waxing is kind of pricey and painful but works well. Make sure they use the soft wax and not the paper strips! You'd need to go like once a month and it gets less painful and the hair grows back in lesser amounts after consistant waxing.
I wouldn't recommend trying to do a "home waxing" job... too painful.
Also, I'm a chic, so the only place I get waxed is ... um, sensitive.

I don't recommend waxing . All the guys I know with a ton of hair that wax it get little cyst type bumps all over. It really looks worse than the hair.
You could try it to see how it works with your skin type and then go from there.

I would avoid the wax. It is just way too painful. Also the veet type stuff is terrible too. It gave me a rash. How far out are you planning on doing it? Typically I just use a hair cut razor and then go back over it all with a shaving razor. Gets the job done for me. But it does grow back fast! I enjoy having my man hair though unless it needs to be gone

ha be ready for some pain bro! I did that one time and will never do it again. but eh you have plenty of time to experiment which way you like best. what competition will you be competing in? and what class?

I was about to say that if you want to wax, buy a bottle of whiskey and drink as you do it, but you're just 19. I just shave. I don't have much to shave in the first place.

the norelco body groomer sucks if ur a rather hairy personally i do this trim with a hair cutting type machine.. then shave with bump stopper razor that leaves very little stubble and then go over it with a regular gillete razor.. smooth like a babys ass and use bump patrol after to prevent ingrowns =)

I really wish there was an easy way of getting rid of hair Why did Epil Stop & Spray have to be a piece of crap product?

nair sucks horribly. painful, kills the top layer of skin, and hard to get precisely right. so you still have to shave after.

My wife bought some hair removal stuff, similar to neet, nair, I used it on my stomach. It worked great, with no rash, burning, or stinging. I can't recall the name at the moment but I'll def. look tonight and let you know tomorrow.

off season i just go with the trusty razor.. before a show, i shave with a brand new razor, and you use some kind of shave gel made for sensitive skin, and get my back waxed. ya, it's painful, or, i should say it hurts, painful sounds a bit extreme, and not terribly cheap, but the smoothness and time it takes to grow back is worth it..

You are indeed a better man than I, Kim!! I waxed once. NEVER again!!! I had no reason, other than that I shaved my back once and kinda have to keep on doing it now or else people try to shoot me during bear season here in PA. My wife convinced me to wax, and of course, she pulled the strips with the DIY kit. NEVER AGAIN!!! Get out the Wahl dog grooming shears, hun. It's that time of the month again!

Sally Hanson creme hair remover for face.
This stuff works good! It's for the face but as I said yesterday, I did use it on my stomach.

ok, what type of razors are used?... i use my face razor for my legs and i get the bumps on my quads... hate it...
should i get a woman's razor?
and i like the idea about bump stoppage products... ill have to look into that

Wish I found the right answer... Been miserable so many times that i've pretty much given up. It isn't the pain of the removal, it's the pain once done. Naired my head once and thought I went through, Chernobyl.

Speaking from experience, lasering is won-der-ful. It's pricey, but if you can afford it, it's so worth it. I've seen the red bumps from waxing, usually on thighs and tummies. They are caused by ingrown hairs and can actually cause scarring. When you are done with your laser therapy, an occasional touch up may be necessary, but for the most part, no more hair to fight. And the skin is as soft and smooth as a baby's butt.

Ive looked into lazering. It averages $3000-8000 pending amount of hair and bodypart size.
Its multiple sessions. One about every 4-6 months i think it was.
If i EVER have the extra cash i will be doing it. Maybe my legs at least.
I only shave my stomach and face. I use a womens bic disposable. I used to have issues but once you start doing it more and every 2-3 days then youre fine. Except my bellow belt area, it is just to sensitive and i get the bumps still.
Also consider how you are doing it. With the hair, against, side ways and speed. I use Body wash by Aveeno, not shave cream. Its all natural and leaves my skin in awesome condition.
I hate my hair.

I use Veet and a exfoliating glove, it's very very effective and simple and I am a pretty hairy guy. They even have a milder one for sensitive skin and it works just as good as the regular one. It doesn't burn but is very very cold when applied. It does not smell anywhere near as bad as these products used to.

Look into the Tria. It's a DIY hair removal laser that is FDA approved. My wife and I love it. About 5 treatments on the highest setting, and the hair is gone for good.
