Haven't had the courage to wax yet, but with the rate it grows back after the Veet I'm not sure it'll be worth the pain...
I used to get my legs waxed - had a lady with a home salon built in her garage and got them done pretty cheaply. Supposed to not hurt that badly if you had it done under every 6 weeks as the roots are not supposed to fully reformed but it's a lie. Always hurt like hell, especially the back of the knees for me - read shock symptoms - sweating, lightheaded!
Additional downside to waxing is you have to let the hairs grow long enough for the wax to get hold so they can be pulled. So a week or two of stubble legs.
Now shave a couple of time a week in the shower and like Murphs even if I had to give up riding I don't think I could go back to hairy legs.
I guess each person's experience is different?
Waxing hurt the first time, now I barely notice that it's happening at all.
As for stubble: the hairs come out soft and thinner compared to stubble from shaving, which has hair follicles that are thicker and hard-edged from the blade cut.
Yes, you have to wait until the next round, but for some it lasts longer than others. 6 weeks between sessions for me, and I'd rather have a period of some slight hair showing than deal with having to shave often and deal with rough stubble.
To each their own!
