No way, get men's disposables they are WAY better than any female razor. Men's facial hair is much closer to pubic hair in terms of feel, so men's razors can take care of business way easier. OP, if you cut up your legs you are doing it wrong. Use shaving cream or shower gel and GO SLOW next time.

I bought a razor pack of four for a dollar. And it gets the job done. Wtf is wrong with you people?? You hairy not knowing how to properly clean and reuse a razor people. DisGust me

You and OP can always use the hair removal cream stuff that smells funny, or whenever you go to get razors you can find some which have smaller blades that wont leave you with cuts. Getting cuts while shaving just sucks.

You must buy cheap razors. I've gone a whole winter without shaving my legs and it only took a little more time than usual. Try shaving cream and a razor that costs more than 99 cents for a four-pack.

When I shave my legs for swimming I use a woman's razor because there really the best. You get one that's a little pricy but it will not cut you and make it look like a shark got you.

77 In swimming season, swimmers don't shave their legs until the competitions. That way while they're training, the hair builds up drag, and when they're in the competition they swim faster because they got rid of the drag. It actually makes a difference.

We swimmers do that shit. Makes ya feel all smooth in the water.. And I find if you use conditioner (like, hair conditioner) instead of shaving cream you're far less likely to nic yourself. Thank me later.

It is most definitely a myth. Hair is tapered when it's unshaven, meaning the base (near your skin) is thicker than the tip. If you shave, you're shaving off the tip so what grows back in is the base which isn't any thicker than it originally was, but is thicker than the tip. That's why people think it grows in thicker. That, and short hair tends to stick up more. Yay, stubble?

Ouch. I hate razor cuts! I tend to slack off in the winter, but that's because I wear pants all the time when it's cold, so no one sees my legs anyway. I don't shave much if I'm not hanging out with anyone/going anywhere, even in the summer. I'm hoping you didn't go out in public with hair that had been growing for 3 weeks on your legs xD

47 - That's your preference. It doesn't HAVE to be OP's preference too. If she doesn't want to shave every 3 days, she doesn't have to. *gasp* I know, such an unfathomable thought.

I understood it perfectly well, hence my reply. Stop trying to push your personal preferences on everyone else. It's not going to do you any good to become butthurt when someone points out not everyone is going to bow down and have the same opinion as you.

130 has a point. 83 should be able to accept people for who they are and what they think. Who gives a fuck if 130 shaves every 2-3 days? She's just saying it works for her and might work for OP. You commenters here are just so plain and boring, pushing out other peoples' thoughts. Really. I'm quite sure no one likes your crappy opinions either 83. I know I don't.

See, 131, I think either you're misinterpreting or I'm not getting my message across well enough. I DON'T care that 130 shaves her legs every 2-3 days. That's her choice. But the way her comment is/was written makes it seem like she's of the opinion that it's odd or gross to NOT shave every three days. She did say "OP should shave every 2-3 days...". If she was really neutral, she should have worded her comment to sound more like "a better idea would be to shave every 2-3 days" instead of saying "yeah you should do this because it's right". I AM trying to stay neutral. Nobody is wrong here... and 130, you're flying off the god damned handle for no reason. Perhaps you need to bone up on your comprehension skills too, hmm?

I noticed both of you are 13 year olds. Perhaps you both need to learn how to accept another's differing opinion. I accepted 130's but offered other insight. I am quite amused, 131, that you "hate" me. I only recently returned to this site, so you haven't likely seen me comment. One discussion changed your mind? Cool. Your young mind will forget about it in an hour. You don't like my opinion? Why, because it offers the opposite point of view to your friend there? Okay, whatever floats your boat. But believe me, you will face a lot of people challenging your opinions later in life.

No. Actually. I've been on FML for awhile now and hardly comment, it's people like you who make me think the world is full of boneheaded jerks. Nobody gives a literal fuck about you and your and nor do they 130's. But 130 seems to be in the right here. And now you're a hypocrite. Saying "oh I think I'll just totally dis 130 here and then make it sous better to 131 as if I'M the victim, lol I'm, like, duh a troll" is SO last year. And I may be 13 but I have more of a sense of a good comment then you do. You're 22? More like 2. Grow up before you comment on a stupid topic like shaving and making it all against two people. THAT'S really shallow. Not giving shaving advice, but turning the tables on 'my friend' and I. You're really just a spazzy 8 year old troll.

Reply

Okay, you two are really out of control. 89 is the reason you "hate" people on this site? Like oh my gosh!! Don't read the comments on FMLs then. And she's right; originally, the comment on this tread was more demanding than suggestive. It's fine that she shaves her legs every 2 days no one is insulting her because of it. I know girls who shave everyday. There was clearly a suggestive implication behind her comment, but she needs to learn how to relay her thoughts in a clear an precise manner. They still teach essay writing in school do they not? They teach it for a reason; so you can say your thoughts without being misunderstood. The reactions to her response where completely unnecessary. People don't trust the opinions of 13 year olds because of how you responded. Grow up verbally and people may respect you more.

Now responding politely to MindFreakazoid: I kind of feel bad that you have to shave every 2-3 days; though I know my sister needs to shave every day if she wants smooth legs. I honestly don't shave often. Like, if I mentioned the time span, some people might be disgusted. But even when my hair grows out, you can't really tell unless you're staring at my legs. My boyfriend really doesn't mind and I'm way too lazy to do it often. I actually find that the less often I shave, the slower it grows out. At one point, my legs were 98% hairless for about 3 weeks. So that's what works for you and this is what works for me. Maybe OP had some medical condition? I couldn't shave for months after I had back surgery. Or, like me, she was lazy. But maybe she should invest in better razors? I think thats the best advice we can give her.

190 - Please heed the advice immediately below your post. *facepalm* Where was the 'dis', exactly? What I said was certainly not a dis. And telling you two you'll face a lot of opposition when you're older is in no way demeaning you; with or without your attitudes there will always be someone to disagree with you. Don't comment on something like shaving? Last I checked, this forum is open for commenting and this FML happens to be about shaving. Shoot, guess that means I'm free to comment! 200 - Thank you.

Just out of curiosity how are y'all going to attack her for putting down your opinions and then turn around and put her opinions down and say no one cares? People these days can be so ignorant... Personally I shave everyday that's my preference. Not because I have to but because the thought of body hair on me (besides what is on my head) grosses me out and so I shave. I believe you may just have sensitive skin and that's the problem. I hardly ever nic myself.
