WARNING--JOE DONT READ THIS!
Lexi's mom...I love you. I like this topic
I wax alot! I do it myself. My sister's an esthetician and she bought me a wax machine for my bday. I wax my armpits, my coochie, my upperlip and sometimes my belly and my sister HAS to wax my eyebrow b/c I'm too scared to shape it.
When you shave your pits, doesn't it itch like CRAZY when it grows out? It doesnt itch at all if you wax. I don't know why you're getting ingrown hair from waxing, but you shouldn't (Now I'm not so sure).
The worst pain is the upper lip. It hurts more than the coochie area! If you've always shaved...then it's gonna hurt the first like 5 times or something. But after that...no biggie. It's just a quick sting. If you shave, you have to do it almost everyday and it itches like CRAZY because the tip of the hair is so thick!
I don't do the legs. That's a waste of wax for me. Also, when I first waxed my legs, I didnt know what I was doing and, oh my, pure torture. I pulled the strip in the wrong direction. I'm too traumatized to get my legs waxed. I dont mind shaving the legs.
Make sure the waxer has a big clientele! Make sure they're not NEW either! LOL.

Panasonic had a new device out last year, can't remember the name, but you basically sandpaper the hair off. Yes, I bought it. Felt like I burned my legs---sandblasted the skin right off my legs AND left the hair behind. Ouch!

I got an Epilady for Christmas one year. It pulled out one hair, screamed and put it away for good! LOL
I have also tried Nair. It burns the first two layers of skin off my legs. Then I got the bright idea to try it on "other areas." Needless to say, I spent the next three nights sleeping with a sheet barely touching me!
