may I ask what that cost you for the laser hair removal and how many sessions did it take to permanently remove it all?

And, did you have much hair and if so, was it coarse?

EVERY day...in the summer, sometimes, twice a day! My hair (and nails!!) grows really, really fast....I can shave my legs in the morning, but by dinnertime, there is actual stubble! So, if I'm going out, they get shaved again!

In the winter, wearing long pants, only once a day. I cannot go to bed with scratchy, stubbly legs!!!

Voted "once a week"-but that's an average, over course of the year.
As others have noted, do so much less frequently in winter
(since my legs don't see the sun for 6+ months) & a bit more often in the summer.

Also depends on how dull (old) or sharp (new) the razor blade is-I try to get as much use out of each one as possible.
I don't go for "perfectly smooth" (do you know how pricey those razor blade refills are ? ), just "good enough-ish".

Every day. It's a habit - and I hate the feeling of stubble.

At least every other day in the summer if not daily. In the winter, not as often, especially while in school when I have to really prioritize my time.

Wow. I shave once a week tops, even in the summer. In the winter, maybe every ten days. But I shave other things to make up for the lack of frequency in the leg department

1-2 times a week for legs.
Armpits and bikini area get shaved every day.
Arms are done once a month.
Eyebrows and face are waxed 2 times a month.
