DIY Hair Removal!!

 A friend emailed this to me and i absolutely Had to share it with the rest of the world!! Enjoy!!

Hair Removal.... 
This is funny. (I don't have a clue as to who wrote this, but....WHAT A  
HOOT!) All hair removal methods have tricked women with their promises of  
easy, painless removal The Epilady, scissors, razors, Nair and now...the  
Read on......... 
My night began as any other normal weeknight. Come home, fix dinner, play  
with the kids. I then had the thought that would ring painfully in my mind  
for the next few hours: "Maybe I should pull the waxing kit out of the  
medicine cabinet." 
So I headed to the site of my demise: the bathroom. It was one of those  
"cold wax" kits. No melting a clump of hot wax, you just rub the strips  
together in your hand, they get warm and you peel them apart and press them  
to your leg (or wherever else) and you pull the hair right off. 
No muss, no fuss. How hard can it be? I mean, I'm not a genius, but I am  
mechanically inclined enough to figure this out. (YA THINK!?!) 
So I pull one of the thin strips out. Its two strips facing each other  
stuck together. Instead of rubbing them together, my genius kicks in so I  
get out the hair dryer and heat it to 1000 degrees. ("Cold wax,"  
yeah....right!) I lay the strip across my thigh. Hold the skin around it  
tight and pull. It works! 
OK, so it wasn't the best feeling, but it wasn't too bad. I can do this!  
Hair removal no longer eludes me! I am She-rah, fighter of all wayward body  
hair and maker of smooth skin extraordinaire. 
With my next wax strip I move north. After checking on the kids, I sneak  
back into the bathroom, for the ultimate hair fighting championship. 
I drop my panties and place one foot on the toilet. 
Using the same procedure , I apply the wax strip across the right side of my  
bikini line, covering the right half of my hoo-ha and stretching down to  
the inside of my butt cheek (it was a long strip) 
I inhale deeply and brace myself....RRRRRRIIIIPPP!!!! 
I'm blind!!! Blinded from pain!!!!.... 
OH MY GAWD!!!!!!!!! 
Vision returning, I notice that I've only managed to pull off half the  
strip.. CRAP! Another deep breath and RIPP! Everything is spinning and  
spotted. I think I may pass out...must stay conscious...must stay 
conscious. Do I hear crashing drums??? Breathe, 
breathe..................OK, back to normal.
I want to see my trophy - a wax covered strip, the one that has caused me  
so much pain, with my hairy pelt sticking to it. I want to revel in the glory  
that is my triumph over body hair. 
I hold up the strip! 
There's no hair on it. 
Where is the hair???
Slowly I ease my head down, foot still perched on the toilet. I see the 
hair. The hair that should be on the's not! I touch. I am 
touching wax.
I run my fingers over the most sensitive part of my body, which is now 
covered in cold wax and matted hair. Then I make the next BIG
mistake...remember my foot is still propped upon the toilet? I know I need 
to do something. So I put my foot down.
Sealed shut! My butt is sealed shut. Sealed shut!
I penguin walk around the bathroom trying to figure out what to do and 
think to myself "Please don't let me get the urge to poop. My head may pop 
off!" What can I do to melt the wax?
Hot water!! Hot water melts wax!! I'll run the hottest water I can stand 
into the bathtub, get in, immerse the wax-covered bits and the wax should 
melt and I can gently wipe it off, right???
I get in the tub - The water is slightly hotter than that used to torture 
prisoners of war or sterilize surgical equipment - I sit. Now, the only 
thing worse than having your nether regions glued together, is having them 
glued together and then glued to the bottom of the scalding hot 
water.. Which, by the way, doesn't melt cold wax.
So, now I'm stuck to the bottom of the tub as though I had cemented myself 
to the porcelain!! God bless the man who had convinced me a few months ago 
to have a phone put in the bathroom!!!!! I call my friend, thinking surely 
she has waxed before and has some secret of how to get me undone. It's a 
very good conversation starter "So, my butt and hoo-ha are glued together 
to the bottom of the tub!"
There is a slight pause. She doesn't know any secret tricks for removal but 
she does try to hide her laughter from me. She wants to know exactly where 
the wax is located, "Are we talking cheeks or hole or hoo-ha?" 
She's laughing out loud by now...I can hear her. I give her the rundown and 
she suggests I call the number on the side of the box.
YEAH!!!!! Right!!
I should be the joke of someone else's night. While we go through various 
solutions. I resort to trying to scrape the wax off with a razor . Nothing 
feels better than to have your girlie goodies covered in hot wax, glued 
shut, stuck to the tub in super hot water and then dry-shaving the sticky 
wax off!!
By now the brain is not working, dignity has taken a major hike and I'm 
pretty sure I'm going to need Post-Traumatic Stress counseling for this 
My friend is still talking with me when I finally see my saving
grace.....the lotion they give you to remove the excess wax.
What do I really have to lose at this point? I rub some on and OH MY
The scream probably woke the kids and scared the dickens out of my friend. 
It's sooo painful, but I really don't care.
It works !!" I get a hearty congratulation from my friend and she hangs up. 
I successfully remove the remainder of the wax and then notice to my grief 
and despair....
So I recklessly shave it off. Heck, I'm numb by now. Nothing hurts. 
I could have amputated my own leg at this point.
Next week I'm going to try hair color...... 

I Def' wont be trying this one at home!!

Toodles!!  :)

'Live for a Life without Regret'


  1. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! That was awesome!!

  2. Ha ha, this is hilarious! I have never tried at-home waxing (and don't think I will, thankyouverymuch!) but I have tried Nair. I have pretty sensitive skin so I used it sparingly and for half the time recommended... and only on one leg at first, just to be sure.
    My leg had bright red burn dots and blisters on it for so long! I guess I'm a shaving girl.

    1. Im def' a shaver too! Who has time to let the leg hairs get that long in the first place anyway!!?
