Question How Do I Shave my Knees? - November 23rd 2010, 01:16 PM

Hey Girls!

I shave my legs but I always have ugly hair on my knee caps!
Does anyone know how to shave you knee cap correctly?

My arm hair use to be blond / no once could see it but now it's ugly and black/ brown! Is there anything I can do to change the color/ get rid of the hair?

Any advice will be greatly welcomed!
Feel free to add me as a friend on here!!

ive heard to shave your knees correctly you would extend you leg out, rather then bending it. . .

For shaving your knees, you just have to be careful. Use loads of foam and shave in small bits to make sure you get it all.

Take care.

I find it pretty easy, actually. I bend my knee/rest it on a bench and just shave it like a normal piece of my leg.

I find extending my leg really helps. However, make sure to be careful as your knees are one of the easiest places to cut while shaving.

As for your arms, you can always shave them too, or get a hair bleaching kit such as Sally Hansen. I used to shave mine, but I stopped because I was having to at least every other day and it also dried them out. Good luck!

I wouldn't really worry about your arms, loadsss of girls have dark hairs on their arms! But you could get special hair bleaching kit. Only do this if it is really neccessary though

And I agree with Tayla on the knee situation. Be very careful to avoid cutting yourself, go slowly so that you get all of the hairs, and use lots of foam/shaving gel

I can't shave my knees! It's just really tickly and awkward

But if you're not as ticklish as me I would recommend straightening your knee so that the skin is loose and doesn't stretch over the bone. I cannot shave over the bone, it freaks me out so much.

Like the others said, be careful not to cut the skin and use foam if necessary.

I always bend my knee so that the skin is stretched taught - i find it makes it easier not to cut myself - and use loads of shaving cream. I wouldn't recomend shaving your arms, it's perfectly normal to have dark hair on your arms.

I bend my knee and use lots of shaving cream. Make sure to go really slow.

As for your arm hair, I would leave it be. It is totally normal to have arm hair.

Well I agree with everyone else on the subject but to prevent in grown hairs (that I have a problem with especially on my knees) you should think about using a peeling cream beforehand.

I do it like I shave my legs. Fast and easy. I don't find it difficult. I just stretch it out.

Try different ways until you find a way that works for you. I personally do it both ways.

I need to invest in some shaving cream for my legs. I only have body wash, which I'm sure isn't the correct type of...shaving solution. And I use razors that don't always need a type of shaving cream. So it's all good.

I usually bend my knee to shave it, since I get more of it that way.

I bend my knee and shave in a left-to-right motion as opposed to upwards like I do for the rest of my legs. I rarely ever nick myself

I guess everyone has their own way of shaving! I bend my knee, personally, and shave in an upward direction. I also make sure to exfoliate my knees, so they don't get really dry and rough. A pumice stone, used lightly of course, worked wonders for me!(: As for your arms... I just shave mine! It takes all of two minutes when I shower, and that is the easiest fix for me! But to each his own!(:

I bend my knees when I shave them. Another thing though is if your worried about cutting or nicking yourself try using a good electric razor. I found (for me at least) that it was a lot easier and I nicked myself less when using an electric one. As for the arm hair you can (as said above) get a special hair bleaching kit, shave it, (I think you can wax them but I'm not sure on that), or you can leave it be. Hope that helps.

Oww, I always bend it. I think that's the safest way.



When all your friends have come and gone,
And the sun no longer shines,
And the happiness for which you long is washed away like an ocean's tide,
When all the hard times outweigh the good,
And all your words are misunderstood,
When the day seems lost from the start
You must follow your heart,
You must follow your heart.
