Dog hair

True happiness! You find a long hair on your body and it’s only dog hair.

I didn’t have wine to congratulate me. Candy is more than better.

Invisible hair

I told you about my face wax. The wax that made my skin burn. Happy memories. This time it’s body hair bleach.

This was long ago. It was my first time as an au pair in London. I thought bleaching my leg hair would make it invisible. It was long ago and then hair removal products were almost harmful. I decided to do it when the kid I was watching had an afternoon rest. I often had him sleep longer then than the mom had said he would. I was a young girl and had to have that time to myself. The parents were not home and cause of that I thought the living room was the right place to do it. I mixed the bleaching powder with everything in the box it came with. There was powder everywhere. I put it on my legs and had time to myself.

I sat with the bleach without trousers on……..and the front door slowly opened. It was the father. He came home early. There I was without trousers. Bleach on my legs. Bleaching powder everywhere. And the kid was sleeping when he shouldn’t be sleeping. I put my trousers on before the father saw me. The bleach was burning. I don’t know how but I also got the powder off the furniture. I said we had to buy groceries and he went to the store.

The bleach had to be rinsed off. I had to it fast and I did. My leg hair wasn’t bleached and all I got was rashes. I got countless spots. Don’t do body hair removal without time to do it.

Wax strips. I had no bleaching powder.

Waxing

Never wax anywhere near the face when people are about to visit. I made that mistake a while ago. I have waxed my face before. And I’ve used the same brand all the times I’ve waxed.

We were about to get a visit from a big group of friends. I thought my upper lip was more than hairy at the time. Waxing is the most effective method when it comes to eliminate hair. It takes the hair away and leaves you without it longer than most hair removal methods. I find that wax strips are better to use on the face cause they’re not as hard on the skin as warm wax is. Rather I used to find strips better until this hair removal.

I decided to wax just days before the visit. I’ve used wax strips before and didn’t get any bad skin reaction. I haven’t got a clue why I decided to do it then. I could have done it long before this but didn’t. I waxed like I always do but the hair didn’t come off.

I used strip after strip and nothing happened. My skin felt damaged but I kept waxing. After a while my skin felt like it was on fire. I had to leave it. No hair was removed and my skin was hurting.

The friends came and it wasn’t my best visit. I had tried to remove the face hair but there I was hairy and with burn marks. My skin was completely damaged. Hair removal isn’t anything you want to discuss at a dinner but I had to. I couldn’t pretend nothing was wrong when my skin was on fire.

Hair removal

Before I begin writing I must say it’s not easy to talk about this but I’ll do it anyway.

I know many women are obsessed when it comes to remove unwanted hair. We want thick hair on our head and no hair anywhere else. We wax and tweeze and we can never remove enough hair. I think it’s crazy but that’s the way things work.

I don’t know about you but the hair on my upper lip is hard to remove. It’s soft and short and a tweezer doesn’t help. It sounds good to have short hair but when there are thousands hair strands you want to remove them. All that hair takes a long time when you use a tweezer. I’ve found the perfect method for it. Threading.

I went and did it a while ago. I did it at a hair salong. It was a hair dresser that did the threading. It was painful but no more than when you use tweezers or wax. The hair dresser used a piece of thread and removed the hair. Like I said it was painful but not unpleasant. The hair dresser was good at it and did it fast. The skin on my upper lip was a bit red after but that went away fast.

Now I have no upper lip hair. I will never use tweezers again because this was the best.
