Waxing, can you do it at home and will it help dark armpits?

When I shave I still have a shadow because I have really dark brown hair. Will waxing help? Can you body wax at home?

Does anyone have a product that they can recommend that you could buy at a grocery store?

  • A grocery store? Why not a drug store?

    As far as waxing under your arm, it's kind of awkward to do. I haven't tried it because of how awkward it is. :/

    I have a similar problem and I found that aloe vera gel helps when I shave. I let it sit for a few minutes, and then shave. Makes for a closer shave. If the waxing option doesn't work out, maybe give that a try.

  • I have brown hair and used to get the shadow after shaving but then I started waxing and I never have the shadow. It's so worth it! And as a plus it takes longer to grow back than when you shave.
