Back Hair Problem

Recommended Posts

Guest TaraD

Ok I need a trick that will help make removing back hair easier. I cant use Nair it makes me break out.

All I can think of is you need someone to help you remove it, by shaving it off. I know that answer is pretty weak. Are there other chemical hair removers that might work better and not make you break out?

Hi Tara,

I have seen a number of shavers advertised with extensions so you can reach your back areas yourself, that's one approach. Heck you can just use tape to attach a shaver to a stick and do the same yourself if you are into DIY.

I am fortunate to have my wife's help with this. She uses a wax kit and paper strips on my back, this lasts longer than shaving.

I agree with you Nair caused me a rash when I tried it on my back, won't do that again. Good Luck,

Cynthia -

Is Nair the same as Veet? Here in the UK we can get Veet for both male and female, but the male version is only available as a cream (smells and is very expensive) and of course, if you are on your own, you need to be a contortionist to apply and then scrape it off 6 minutes later.

Ditto when using a shaver, there's two spots that a set of clippers just will not reach! :banghead:

Wax? I've had my back done a couple times. It can get to be a little expensive over the long term. Otherwise razors are pretty much it.

I use the Philips* Bodygroom electric shaver to shave my back myself. There are three different models and having owned them all I've found the cheapest model (that's the blue one) is the best for back shaving. A shaver being a shaver I never get perfect results but that's something I can live with.

*Philips use a different name in the US, I think.

      You are indeed sensitive dear @Mary Jane, your writing is sweet and profound.
    • Dinaki
      I thank you kindly dear Sara.

      It's so pretty! You deserve it!   Hugs!

      Are you not allowed to change your birth certificate in court dear @Carrie? Are you post op?    ( I am sorry, I don't know how it works in America or even in Australia)   In Athens, after my surgery in 1978, the Greek court changed it and they even gave me the appropriate ID card.

      It's lovely Dina and sorry to hear about the passing of your mom. Hugs.

      I don't really know what to say just following what i feel, this world is so broken and we've also broken our selves up like the black people and white people thing yet everything can be fixed in days if we didn't act like we have different amounts of power im only 16 yet i already know some types of people and i know which types i meet the most the ones that are mean and the ones that's invisible even to me but i know their there. money seems to rule the world, and it seems like to survive you have to be at least a little mean.   yet people that are good, people that are enduring all the bad the world throws at them and are staying good are stronger than any mean/bad person because its so much harder to be good to be actually kind, to give people multiple chances, to keep taking the bad and not letting it turn you bad. im crying as i type this because this world is really just so broken but im still staying strong.   this world really needs more people who will try to make it better there's not enough people trying and im not just saying try to prevent earth from being physically destroyed im also saying fixing the already broken pieces of earth plus try to inspire other people to make the world better

      I just ordered from me to me with love Dina, a Joan Rivers bee from Etsy.   I shall wear the brooch every day on the right side of my clothing, remembering my sweet mama. My darling mama always protected me and the bee will do the same, my beloved mammy will be with me. The bee will protect me. R.I P mama, I lost her three years ago.

      No, I think I'd be suspicious too. Trust, but verify.   I hope you can get everything all worked out.   Hugs!

      I started a new job a couple of days ago.At the end of the day I received a text telling me if I did not give them my personal information they would cancel my shift today. This is the second job they have sent me to this year where all my personal information went missing. I ended up speaking to the team leader on the phone she claimed it had never happened to anyone else except me.  I pointed out that it had happened to me twice.  Is this incompetence or discrimination. Unfortunately when I applied for the job with this agency I was required to give them a copy of my birth certificate.  Which still has my old gender on it. I do not know if I am being paranoid or not. Frustrated Carrie

      Hi, Aggam.  Welcome!   Like your therapist, I can't tell you if you are transgender or not.  I can tell you that dysphoria does not go away, and it tends to get more severe the longer it goes untreated.  Since your therapist is not experienced with gender issues you might want to ask her for a referral to someone who is.   Some cross-dressers do not consider themselves to be transgender; many do.  Sometimes, people's understanding of themselves changes over time.  I know one lady who initially considered herself "only" a cross-dresser.  Then she considered herself a transgender cross-dresser.  Then she considered herself to be gender-fluid.  Now, she considers herself to be bi-gender.  She has told me that there may be more changes ahead as she gets to know herself better.  It is a journey of discovery, and who you are is for you alone to decide.   At 33, you are far from old.  I figured out who I was at age 61 and started transitioning at 62.  Now, at 65, I am happy with who I am.  I don't recommend leaving it as long as I did, but age is not a barrier.   Regards, Kathy

      When I was getting fitted for my prosthetic breasts. The lady doing it asked if I wanted to do breast augmentation. She was telling me that it is not a one time good deal. you have to have maintenance on them every couple years. So I had though using product from your own body would be better.   Kymmie

      My BA doc called it “Fat Grafting” using a liposuction technique but I’m sure there are other names for it..who knows. My doctor prefers doing this procedure over man made implants but I checked with my insurance and it turns out that my trans care benefits only allow for silicon or saline breast implants which is a much less expensive procedure. Oh well, it’s better than nothing.   Susan R🌷
