    A question sorta related to all this:

    -many of my friends get like little lumps because they shave too much; If you know what I am talking about, I was wondering do they really get that because they 'over-shave'? And do the lumps ever go?

    With sugar-waxing does it make your hairs grow any faster/ slower than they would normally?

    Shaving in the direction of the hairs helps to reduce the bumps.

    Waxed hairs should grow back slowly but I don't wax because it gives me ingrown hairs.

    Maybe it helps when they just don't "over-shave"?

    The easiest way to avoid ingrown hairs is to exfoliate regularly.

    Yep, Shakira's right.

    I have ingrown hair everytime I wax, more in some areas like knees, but with a regular exfoliation the problem's gone

    I've noticed that different areas on my body respond differently to different hair removal procedures. I use an epilator which has no ingrown hair effects on my legs but discovered it did on my bikini line, so I shave the bikini line instead. If you have issues with one type of hair removal try another. And yes, exfoliate!

    I always had a terrible time with bumps and ingrown hairs in the bikini and underarm area. For me, a mechanical epilator has worked very well (emjoi gold) so well, that I now don't have under arm hair anymore. That did take a few years though, but in between no pain except immediately after.
