Hi! I usually have my armpits waxed which gets rid of the hair for about two weeks and prevents it from getting thicker. The other day I had to go to a party and didn't have time to go to the salon to get waxed so I decided to shave. A week later I was going to a wedding so I went to the salon to get waxed but they told me they couldn't wax my armpits because the hairs were too small. So unfortunately I had to shave my armpits AGAIN. I don't like shaving because apparently it makes the hair grow darker and thicker, which I have noticed from these past two times I shaved. That last time I shaved was around five days ago, but there's a problem. I have a pool party next week and I'm sure that if I go to the salon they'll tell me they can't wax me because my hair is too short. Last time they told me I had two wait at least 15 days after shaving to get waxed. I don't want to shave again because I'm scared my hair is going to get really thick and dark. The same story applies for my leg hair. I have to shave them too and I don't want the hair to get worse. So my question here is, is there a way to make hair thinner? Like reverse what shaving is causing? I'm honestly very self conscious about it and I don't want to live with thick, dark armpit hair. I want you guys to also tell me what you do to keep that hair gone for good. Thanks!
