I think I'm beginning to hate epilating. :(

The hairs on my legs are too thin to be epilated and instead of pulling them from the roots, they just snap off; it's like shaving all over again. :(

Except it's WORSE than shaving. </333

And they're not thin enough to leave alone either. I don't know what to do!

They grow back to quickly. I have to do it once a week.

And it is always left with ugly red bumps and ingrown hairs.

You'd have to shave more than once a week.

Ingrown hairs come from shaving too.

Just exfoliate

tried that, don't work very well. I don't get ingrowns from shaving- at least to this extent.

And plus I used to shave 1-2 times per week so its not that much difference.

i'm with ^ on all cases - start small and controlled, then progressively attack larger areas, THEN attack with different methods (shaving -> plucking -> waxing (pro > diy) -> epilating).
when i first got my epilator, my bf & i joked about doing his hair (mainly chest/back) with it. i told him he'd die with waxing in a salon, let alone me doing it with the epilator
girls TOTALLY have higher pain threasholds than guys
maybe when it comes to beauty crap, but things that would make girls die of pain men take it with a grunt, e.g getting half your arm cut off "its only a scratch, dont need the doctor"

hair plucked out is fucking BS though, most of us have never had it done in our lives, and men usually have thicker and stronger hair anyways so combine that with a thick hair root thats never been pulled out and you get the picture.
