There are some things a girl just needs to know, but is too embarrassed to ask outright. It may be considered by some to be TMI to discuss certain things, but how else are you going to get the answers you need to live the fulfilled life of an informed woman? To that end, I will occasionally be posting questions about…lady things…in TMI Tuesday.
The last TMI I did was actually not on a Tuesday. In case you missed it, click here to read my post about exercising while “on” (and answer the question, if you like). Today’s TMI question is about the downstairs lady bits. It’s really a two part TMI question. It’s been something I’ve been thinking about for a while, but haven’t been in any hurry to address because it’s…well…uncomfortable and a little TMI. But that’s what we’re here for, right?
The first part of the question: hair removal, in the lady bits area specifically. This one is a hard one for me. What’s the best way to get rid of hair “down there”? Do you shave, wax, laser, Nair, or remove hair in some other way? Do you just shape it up a bit, make a landing strip, or take it all off? What are the pros and cons of the different hair removal methods you’ve tried?
I’ll be first to put out my (limited) experience in hair removal. One thing I did (and will never do again) is make the mistake of shaving in two different directions. Not only did my lady parts itch like I had VD, I got an ingrown hair. I’ve had waxing done, but only the bikini line. The first time, it actually bled a little :-(!
I have no problem removing hair from other body parts by either shaving, waxing, threading, or tweezing. I’ve found an eyebrow shape and width that works for me and emphasizes my gorgeous eyes. I am the queen of removing unsightly chin hairs. I’m an old pro at shaving underarms, and can (almost) shave my legs without knicks. But there is something about grooming the lady bits that has me intimidated. I’ve not alighted on a hair removal regimen that works for me, nor on the perfect amount of hair removal for me.
So, ladies, what’s the best way to groom the lady bits? Also, what’s the optimal amount of hair to remove? Am I the only one who is clueless about this?
P.S. If only you could see the pictures Zemanta pulled up on this topic…I could have gone my whole life without those pictures. Ugh.
