This past Friday afternoon, one of my clients told me that Rachel Ray did a segment on facial hair that morning. She had 3 women test 3 home methods. One was the spring, one was a home electrolysis, and the third was the sand paper pad thingys. All 3 women gave thumbs down. The spring hurt, I don't remember the complaint about the home electrolysis, and the sand paper thingy didn't work.
I had to laugh when she told me about the spring. My childhood home had a screened back porch. The porch had a screen door. The screen door had a spring that was just the right height that if I used my left arm to push the door open, rather than using my right hand as I should have, the spring would catch the hairs on my left arm...OUCH! I don't want to even imagine doing the spring thing to my upper lip! I thought waxing the lip was torture, the spring would be slower torture.
