I don't know of a home laser hair removal kit... but anything is possible.. hahahaha. I use clippers when it gets long, then a razor. Sometimes I use VEET. Careful with the veet around your nut sack though... it can burn. hahahahaha.

Been a lot of negative media on Laser removal here lately....people getting burns and scarred for life.If you are considering,ask around for peoples experience.It is a Laser after all.

I Had the laser hair removal system. It certainly decreased hair, but, never completely. Treatment was getting tedious and I eventually gave up. Nenever got burns, but I can certainly see someone who didn't test different areas to get burned. There are certain spots of each area that actually need different settings. For instance, I had to change settings for 3 different places on my chest...around nipples, outter area, and inner area.

I tried waxing, which was, dear lord, the most horrible experience ever, and broke out with nasty bumps.

I have finally settled on using clippers year round to just trim up, then for days where I will have my shirt off, I use a Norelco Body Groomer. It's a little time consuming, but no break outs, no burns, no cuts, no rashes etc.

On dairy farms they remove the hair from the teets with a propane torch. Give that a try.

I bought a Mangroomer Professional from Amazon.com after reading the great reviews it received and love it! Works great, fast and you can even do your back.

No I wouldnt do my nuts with it but it has a telescoping arm that lets you shave any area of your body. Here is a link.

I bought a Razorba from this site for my back. Works great!

I've got a rechargeable trimmer for horses for grooming. Great battery, no nicks and no pulls. Blades pop off and I get them sharpened at a local horse tack shop. However, my wife owns a horse, so I don't have to fess up to the shop what the blades are really trimming :)

Really works? I tried some creme stuff on my chest once, and my alpha chest hair kicked it's arse. It did leave tons of strange red rashlike bumps for a week or so. :(

Hey guys,

Am I normal? LOL! I've seen improvements in my body and I like it a lot! Now, I feel like removing my hair in my armpit. I've seen pics here of other guys who have a clean armpit and I thought it looks nice. What about you folks, what do you think about it?

Not in a million years would I ever try that. lol

I trim the armpit hair a lot, but not completely. The skin there feels more uncomfortable to shave than elsewhere. YMMV.

Regarding a trimmer, I use an electric, larger than what the hairdresser may use on sideburns, but smaller than what they would use to shave your head. I tried a cordless first, but it didn't have enough juice for the entire job (I only shave every three weeks so it takes a little while).

I have the Phillips Norelco rechargeable wet/dry shaver. Works great everywhere, and I do mean everywhere, in or out of the shower and anatomically. I shave my pits with a quick pass with the Norelco or a Gillette Fusion I keep just for that. Don't dig like you're peeling potatoes, and there's no problem.

I'm worried that hair thickens then it will itch us especially when it starts growing like 1 or 2mm. How do you deal with it?

This is the reason I rarely use my norelco trimmer, maybe once or twice a year. Want to shave then do laser but Im worried about the itching when it starts to grow...

Shave (or wax) your pits, man....you'll love the fact that you look a lot cleaner, you won't be nearly as smelly, and you might not even sweat as much....

Laser hair removal is best done by professionals! It's not cheap, either--I was quoted a price of $1600 to do my back. Laser works by killing individual hair follicles so that they don't grow hair anymore.

I'll wax rather than pay for laser.....

If you are interested in laser hair removal, check Groupon or Living Social for your area. Almost weekly different businesses are running 6-sessions-for-$99 deals in my area.

Also, once the hair follicle goes gray, the laser will not work on it. In other words, you can only remove the non-gray hair with the laser.

Shave, let the hair grow back 1/4", then wax. Hairs grow on slightly different cycles. So by the time you have 1/4" grown in you'll get most of the hair when you wax. But it's the most painful wax because you are getting the most hair. After that it's easier and less painful.

There is one old-fashion hair removal trick - burn it with a blow torch and then simply rub it off with a towel. You should all try, works like a charm.

It also doesn't work if your hair is not very dark. I asked to my waxing lady and she told me laser removal won't work for me as my hair is blonde.
