    Hi,

    I wax my underarms once in a month. I couldn't go for waxing when the hair is short and I wait till the hair grows completely. Which is the best way for waxing underarms regularly? Beauticians recommend waxing and one good point about waxing is underarms doesn't become dark.

    Suggestions please......

    yeah i too have short hairs why wont you wax 15days once.how much they are charging underarm waxing.
    just try threading when you have very short hairs and regularly exfoliate your skin daily.Threading wil remove most of the small hairs but ingrown hairs wil be tough to remove

    waxing is the best method and totally agree it will not make skin darker infact it will make it lighter .. This is what i do : When i finish my waxing i take cold shower and apply baby oil wear only sleeveless whole day . Next day i take hot shower and scrub with Nad ingrown hair solution which will remove the dead cells and ingrown hair . after a week use tweezer to take any ingrown hair this leaves my skin smooth and hair free for atleast 1.5 months without any hassle .

    Chitra,

    In parlor, they charge Rs.50 for underarms waxing. They don't do wax once in 15days since the hair is too short. But I am thinking of using Veet waxing strips and gonna try it out.

    Blessbaby,

    I don't think I can get that solution in India. Anyways, I will look out for any ingrown hair solution available in the market.

    for me they are charging 35 for under arm waxing. better try wax strips in multi direction. use dove anti perspirant spray it wil soften your underm hair hence hair removing wil be easy.

    I have been waxing my underarms for a few months now and would never go back. It is so much better than shaving! There are some tips that can help you out though for a better underarm wax..

    Apply wax in the direction of hair and pull the wax strip in the opposite direction. It will pain for a minute. Rub the area with ice cubes. You will feel better.
