Waxing or Shaving?

Waxing and shaving are common methods of hair removal. Waxing requires warm wax to remove hair follicles while shaving is a method that involves using shaving sticks or razors to trim the hair.

I cannot really tell which is better; it depends on the individual's choice. Myself, for instance, I have never tried waxing because I've heard reports about how painful waxing can be. I'm team shaving.

So, I asked a couple of friends what they'll rather go for. Read below some responses:

Shaving is so easy for me. It's something I can do anytime. Waxing seems to require so much preparation, I'm not sure I have that time. - Miss B

It's team shaving for life! Shaving can't take me more than 5 minutes. It's something I do every day after the shower - Mrs. A

I've actually waxed before, my boyfriend persuaded me to. I found it uncomfortable ... I even farted – Miss R

I tried both waxing and shaving for the skin and pubic area for a while. I find shaving kind of high maintenance because it requires me to do it really often. Unlike the waxing, I do it less often than shaving yet it gives me clean and stubble-free skin - Buki

Even though I haven't waxed before, I think I prefer it. This is because of the bumps shaving gives me, and the speed of hair growth. I'm considering a DIY sugar wax on my legs soon - Roselyn

In all, both waxing and shaving have positive and negative sides.
