I have never shaved before. What is the best way to do the mass reduction quickly of hair on my legs. I figure it will take forever. Wax? Nair? Help!!!

Razor blad in the shower. You will nick yourself the first time, especially behind the knees, on the knees and around the ankles. But you'll get the hang of it. Oh... and use a sharp razor...

For the first time. Follow the instructions. It says it takes 5 minutes to work and it does take the full 5 minutes. It smells lousy becuase it is a chemical that "burns" off your hair. Have fun.
Say no to Nair!speedisgood

Especially if you have dark, coarse hair. I tried the stuff "for men." Dpesn't work for me, even if I leave on extra long.

Use clippers first. Then get the rest in the shower (make it hot, and for God's sake, make sure you don't have goose bumps!)

I prefer the Gillette Venus razor. It's the women's version of the Mach 3. It works so much better than those pink bargain ones--3 blades, head rotates a lot for those tricky places, handle is ergo shaped, and the back of the head is open so all those hair chunks don't clog the razor.

Use lathered up soap on your legs for a lubricant. Don't press too hard, either, just let the blade glide and it'll do its' job fine.
I just said "yes".look271

It worked. I had to leave it on about 10 minutes and some areas I had to apply 2x. However, it's GONE now. Damn, my legs are RIPPED! =)

It's terriffic for getting the hair down to about 1mm ....which is short enough for me....I believe you can still get them for about $50...no nicks, no soaking, no rash, no BS
