Yeah so I've never waxed any hair off of my body- I've always heard how bad it hurts and I figured, being that I'm a wuss, I shouldn't try it. Okay, so yesterday I got stuck in the cosmetics dept for hours on end (I work at Walmart and they made me cashier there). And I started wandering aimlessly and looking at all the nifty stuff. So I see these cold "washable" wax kits, and I figured why not? Can't be that painful...
So I take it home and I do the test patch and it gets a bit red and it hurts a little, but not for more than a second, and I figure I'm okay. So today (like 12 hrs after I tested it) I tried doing my legs. Yeah, well overall that didn't go well. Some hair came off- some stayed, it seemed like it took a year, and it hurt a lot worse today. So I stop and I say forget it- and just use the after treatment cream to stop the stinging. Well, low and behold do I look down and see these dark marks. I swear that stuff bruised me!! It like broke blood vessels or something, and it looks horrid. I was just wondering if anyone has had that bad of an experience with hair treatments, removal, dying etc... I want to know if I'm alone in my stupidity.
Why is it that we are at our most ingenius only when trying to destroy the things that keep us alive and thriving?
