Shaving has caused the hair on my legs to start growing in a lot thicker and I heard the cream helps thin it out is that true? I'm not a real fan of attempting to wax my entire leg. Who else uses it is there any brands that are really good?
I love hair removal cream - but I only tend to use it on my bikini area. Legs and pits I just find too much of a hassle. You have to leave it for 3 minutes at least - and I can't be standing still for 2 seconds let alone 3 minutes lol.
Also - I find I end up using too much on my legs and it's easy enough to just shave very quickly every day in the shower to get rid of the tiny ones that grow over night - so I never really notice how the hairs grow back because I never really give them time too.
But yeah - for my bikini line it's great. I'm not sure about them growing back thinner - but I definitely find they grow back softer, and more comfortably if that makes sense.
I use Veet - the smell is horrible, but the results are really good.
But if you are actively shaving it should not matter how dark it becomes...
If you want to know about creams...only experience I have is with Nair? hair removal for men. when cream is used...the hairs still grow back thicker and darker but it takes a little bit longer to grow back...like wax...the product I said is not important but if you want the convenience of getting rid of hair...cream is where its at.
Just don't put it anywhere ...um...sensitive.
Hope this helps.
By the way...a guy said something about hair not coming back thicker after shaving...i agree...it comes back DARKER...my 3 sisters and I can agree on that.
First, it is not true that shaving makes hair thicker. Think about it: if it were true, the cure for baldness would be shaving the head, and eventually guys wouldn't even be able to shave their faces with how thick their beards would be. Hair APPEARS thicker, because stubble shows a sharp contrast to skin.
But if you really don't like shaving, try waxing or a cream like Veet or Nair. It won't thin anything out, but it will help reduce the time you spend shaving in the long run.
Your hair will not grow back thicker, it will only appear that way when it grows out because the hair grows out the same length over and over. Your hair follicles could just produce hair at a faster rate then normal. Like mine, I hate shaving and having to deal with all that stuff. I'm gonna get permanent lazer hair removal one day. I'm a hairstylist, I've been well educated on myths about hair growth. Everyone hair growth is different, no one's hair will grow back at the same rate and everyone has a different number of hair follicles. Its like when people get and get a haircut and they think that their hair will grow back faster when actually that is not the case. Your hair just grows back more evenly which gives the allusion of appearing fuller. I suggest either sticking to shaving, waxing, or try a high quality hair removal cream.
no don't do that its a bad idea! that stuff is not good for your skin I tryed it once and I had little red bumps all over my legs and it didn't take my hair off.. and it hurts a lot I wouldn't do it stick to shaving its so much better
