  2. The method will be more effective if practiced daily or alternatively, otherwise, stubble will start appearing on the shaved surface.

  2. Razor should be washed properly, before and after use, to avoid infection.
  3.  Apply some moisturizing lotion after shaving the armpit, to avoid irritation.

Waxing is yet another technique to remove armpit hair from the root. It is done by applying a thin layer of  artificial wax(slightly hot wax), and removing it in opposite direction using the wax strips. It is effective usually until 3-4 weeks, but, for some people hair regrowth may start in 2-3 weeks or soon.
