How come when I shave the next day it comes back? It’s so irritating!
Girly, this one has been haunting women all over the world for ages.
Unfortunately, shaving alone won't do the trick to banish those pesky hairs for very long. Every single hair you have on your body is very much like the saying, "the tip of the iceberg." When you shave, you only whack off the top of the hair, what sits up and out of the skin.
In reality, like an iceberg, the hair doesn't end at what you can see, it actually extends much further into the hair follicle. So every time you shave, it's just waiting to poke back out a few hours later. That's how you always end up with that pesky stubble not too long after shaving.
If what you have in mind is keeping your legs silky smooth for a few days at a time, you might want to switch over to waxing, which pulls out the entire hair, not just what's sitting up on top of the surface.
