Women's Talk Wednesday- Hair Removal
Let's start with the new fad 'less painful' ones. The hair removal spray- looks amazing on TV. Just spray it on, wait a few minutes, and then wipe the hair away. Seriously? It's that easy? No offense, but I throw up major flags with this one. Hair removal is never that easy. Isn't it a right of passage to contract a minor staph infection from a shaving wound, usually around the ankle or back of the knee area? So, girls nowadays can just wipe their leg hair away, painlessly, with minimal effort? Something's wrong with this one. If this spray is strong enough to just melt hair away, couldn't it just melt your skin away after prolonged usage? Show me studies, please, hair removal spray company. If you can prove to me without a doubt that my skin won't ooze off of my bones after using your product for a year, I'm game.
Growing up I tried depilatories, but my ADD would always kick in; couldn't stand waiting like 10 minutes for that stuff to dissolve the hair. And the smell was intensely gross. So, I gave up on those pretty quickly.
Though the thought is appealing, I, like many women, don't have the money for electrolysis. I'd love to give it a try, but there's so much more that money can go towards. If I win the lottery, though, I'll have it done and let y'all know all about it.
Now the discussion is open to you all; what's worked for you, what hasn't, any embarrassing stories you'd like to share; I shared two- please don't let me be the only one today. The floor is now yours! Enjoy!
