Maybe start shaving as part of your daily routine. Unexpected pit-hair would mortify me!
I can't shave everyday. I shave about once a week and though I don't like it and feel kinda gross my skin, especially arm pits, are super sensitive. If I shaved everyday they would be painfully raw and itchy, especially during the dry cold winter. I do shave if I know that pits will be viewable though! Sucks to be you OP if you have the same situation as I do, I would be embarrassed too!
I have the same problem. I shave at most once a week but my hair grows quickly so a stubble is still visible after that time. When I don't see my boyfriend for a few months and it's winter I don't shave at all unless I'll be really dressed up with short sleeves for something.
Apart from the ridiculous cost of laser surgery, it requires more than one appointment. It's not a magical laser that zaps away the hair. It takes about 3-6 appointments (depending on how thick/dense the hair is) and even then, it's not guaranteed to get rid of all the hair.
20 & 26; I tend to have the same problem when it comes to shaving my arm pits everyday. I found a relatively cheap remedy for razor burn and those nasty little red bumps that itch and burn like hell. It's a gel that I buy from Sally's beauty supply, you can probably find it elsewhere as well. And it really has helped. I can now shave my underarms everyday if I apply the product after each shave. I don't know if it would work for you, or if you have already tried it unsuccessfully. But hey, it's worth a shot anyways. What's the worst that can happen? Any little bit helps.
Little uncommon for guys to do but at the same time, like everyone else will say, shave.
Omg I laughed out loud when I moderated this and I'm laughing out loud again! This is gold!
Maybe it's just me, I don't know if it's scientifically proved, but I always have the impression that I sweat more if I don't shave my armpits daily, so.... yuck.
#12 - The effect is the same - more sweat is more sweat, it doesn't make any difference if it's being produced faster or evaporating (or whatever it does) more slowly. Also, shaving armpits takes some 5-10 seconds, it's not a huge surface like legs and it doesn't require as much attention as more delicate ladyparts. It's easy to fit in the morning routine - brush your teeth, put on make-up, shave armpits. Probably the least problematic of all the things I do in the morning. #37 - both forms are correct. At least that's what I've been told by the teachers, and I've had quite a few of them in my life. How about you learn some foreign language to the point of being able to speak it fluently? We would be able to discuss our impressions, some of them possibly relating to geographical factors influencing the grammar.
48. Really? All that about shaven armpits and I'm sorry my morning routine doesn't involve showering, my night routine does, and I'm sure as a female you would know that dry shaving hurts, so how do you just add that to your routine? Plus whoa you can speak another language, others can't, that doesn't make you, or myself or anyone else that can better then those that can't. Please kindly stop looking down at others now? Thanks
God, I didn't know that comment about shaving armpits can piss off that many people. Honestly? 59 - well, I never stated that armpits are my area of expertise. It all started with a half-jokingly written comment about my own impressions. I don't feel well with my armpits unshaved. Apparently, some people took it as a kind of accusation or statement that everybody should shave their pits everyday or otherwise they're gross. Well, do whatever you want. As for the 'yuck' part, OP stated that she hasn't shaved her armpits for a long time - so yes, that's a bit too much in my opinion. Anyway, when you express your disapproval the way you did, it's good to enlighten the person you disapprove of. 61 actually explained what was probably your point as well, thanks for that, but it doesn't change my attitude towards armpits. 72 - I can't understand why you took it so personally, I have a few guesses actually, but that would've started a war probably, so I'll stay silent. My morning routine doesn't include showering either - it's possible to shave without it, actually. Maybe I just have a thick skin. As for the language part - my point was, seeing how 37 corrected something that wasn't a mistake, that only a person that didn't learn any foreign language can think that her 'version' of said language is the only correct one. I come from a part of Poland that is considered to be speaking Polish most purely, simply because people who got moved there after II World War had to learn language almost literally from the books - but it doesn't make me travel around the country telling people that the word they use for 'potatoes' is incorrect. As for English, I wouldn't have used 'would of' instead of 'would have' or 'their' instead of 'they're', but there are some aspects of languages that are simply varying from place to place - and a person who speaks a foreign language probably knows it. (Although, honestly, I think that one foreign language is a minimum for an educated person nowadays. It doesn't make me look down on the people who don't speak any though). Now, go ahead, thumb me down, that was my last comment in this thread, regardless of how many misconceptions it may cause, I promise. As I heard recently, fighting in the Internet is like running in paraolympics - even if you win, you're still retarded. Have a good day!
Well this is exactly what I come to FML for. The heated armpit debates. And sorry if this is off topic or I'm being too politically correct but I don't think physically/mentally disabled people would appreciate the term "retarded" to be thrown around. Just saying because my friend called my mom that once and it ended our friendship. It's hurtful.
I agree with whoever it was that said shaving is part of routine. I shave every night in the shower, and I have an electric I use in case I forget and I'm wearing a tank top or whatever. Why is it such a big deal? its just shaving. isn't it kind of a personal decision? Some people don't shave at all.
Wow that comment is definitely the dumbest I've read in a while! Just because she hasn't shaved doesn't mean she doesn't shower! I know that when I shave more than once a week my skin in my armpits gets really swollen and hurts like hell so when I don't see my boyfriend for a few months and it's winter, I don't shave at all. And I still shower every day!
27, you are lucky you don't get raw from shaving everyday! I can during the summer when it's not so dry, thank goodness because I love my tanks and shorts! Many women don't shave everyday because it begins to become uncomfortable, dry, and itchy. Taking a razor to your armpits everyday can be bothersome to such sensitive skin.
