Get rid of Underarm Hair
I am very much turned off by women who wear sleeveless blouses, and do not care if there are hairs in their underarm. It’s freaking me out. I am not saying that I don’t have one, but I don’t show it in the public if ever I had this stuff. These thing is really an endless battle for all women.
There are many ways to remove underarms hairs, but I think it depends on your lifestyle and the amount of money you are willing to spend for it.
I’ve got this info in ehow.com
The hair is pulled from the follicle with a tweezer. This is time consumin since you can only pull one hair at a time. However, as the hair is plucked, it breaks below the surface of the skin and pierces the hair follicle, causing damage and inflammation beneath the surface of the skin. This leads to bumps (pseudofolliculitis barbae) and dark marks (post inflammatory hyperpigmentation) and because of this, it is not a recommended method of hair removal.
2. Underarm Hair Removal with a Razor
Using a razor is the most common, and by far the cheapest, method used to remove underarm hair. The drawback to removing underarm hair with a razor is that you may experience skin irritations and redness under your arm after shaving. In addition, hair grows quickly, so you must shave daily or every few days. Some of the more expensive razors claim to cause less irritation.
Waxing is a very popular method of underarm hair removal. The wax removes hair follicles from your underarm. Warm wax is spread on your underarm, and then covered by a paper strip. Once the wax cools for 5 to 7 minutes, the strip is ripped quickly from your underarm, causing a sharp pain. Hair won’t grow back on your underarm for about 6 weeks. Waxing is usually performed by a licensed cosmetologist. The drawbacks of waxing are cost and the pain that goes with it.
Depilatory creams present another good way to remove underarm hair. Depilatory cream is applied to the underarm region, and dissolves your underarm hair. After 15 minutes, wipe your underarm clean with a warm water cloth. Your underarm hair will start to grow back in 2 or 3 weeks. Depilatory creams aren’t very expensive, and can be purchased at most pharmacies, and convenience stores. The major drawback is that depilatory creams may cause skin irritation under your arm, particularly if you have sensitive skin.
I have used one before (veet) it cost P100, but not all the hair has been removed.
Laser underarm hair removal presents another way to remove your underarm hair. A laser is used to literally cut and remove regions of your underarm hair. Laser underarm hair removal can cost thousands of dollars per treatment. Hair usually won’t grow back under your arm for 2 months. There is very little if any pain involved. The laser may cause skin irritation and redness to your underarm.
Electrolysis underarm hair removal is a permanent way to remove underarm hair. Electrolysis treatment involves individually removing each underarm hair follicle. This is a tedious process that is usually performed over the course of several separate treatments. Hair will never grow under your arm again. Electrolysis is by far the most expensive way to remove underarm hair. It can cost thousands of dollars depending on your practitioner. Electrolysis treatment may cause scarring and irritation under your arms.
