    I use conditioner to shave instead of shaving cream and I shave with the grain instead of against. Also make sure you shave regularly and you'll get used to it.

    hahahahaha do you remember my post on that? Yeah my nips where bleeding and had scabs for a week. No more nair, I dont shave. I set the electric razor to #1 and trim SHORT. No itch, no bumps, no burns and you will look the same after 2 days when you shave.

    That's what made me think of it lol. I do the same as you with the trimmer now. Too much for too little when it comes to shaving it.

    My GF had the same problem with bumps/ingrown hair. (Not on the chest)

    I bought her an electric trimmer. She had never used one before, and she loved it. Super close smooth shave, no bumps. Use wet or dry. (I became her new barber...)

    Now...Men shaving chest? Really? Is that the deal?
    I did it once...looked like a little boy.
    Donīt you think a muscular chest with manly hair is the coolest.
    My experience is, they love the chest hair. I even have some gray, which they love even more!! Maybe the gray makes me look experienced/smart/wise..lol...who knows.
    Cause you have to admit, itīs all about what "they" like...

    It felt/looked weird the first time I shaved my chest. I though it looked funny also but after a week or so I got use to it and noticed when I have hair it really hides the definition and looks better without. Even though girls say they like hair on the chest (luckily I still dont have enough to count on my back) but they sure seem to play with it more, rub their hand over your chest when you dont have any hair.

    You need to loofah your skin regularly, especially after shaving. It'll rid the dead skin cells that will plug up the pore and cause the new hair to grow underneath.......and make sure you shave in the direction of the hair.

    Not for chest or arms if you have more than peach fuzz. Ive done the chest once. NOT fun... I dont even recommend it for the back. Each time I have waxed (4) I break out and look like I'm 17 again. LOL Everyone should try waxing the chest/arms once though. Just watch 40 yr old virgin first.

    Peach fuzz is a different situation and should be shaven, but I wax it all, I made a mistake and shaved once and itched like i had the fvckin chicken pox. I broke out once after waxing and started using an exfoliant in the shower immedietly after i waxed and it never happened again. For the back I dont barely have peach fuzz so its not an issue. I only yell when the area below my belly button is being waxed. lmao
