Shaving will be the cheapest.

The lotions and creams you have to get it everywhere and you have to be very still for quite a while to let the depilatory work. This can be very time consuming.

Waxing worse also and it can be done by yourself or at a salon. It gets expensive, it's painful.

Any of these you will have to keep doing them over and over, but the waxing will last the longest. Then the depilatories such as Veet or Neet will last the next longest. Shaving lasts the least longest BUT if you shave every single day you'll find there is actually very little to shave and once that first shave is done, it takes a way lot less to maintain it than it would if you only shaved 2-3 x week.

PS: I really don't think you want to shave your vagina (your vagina does not have hair). You may be thinking of wanting to shave or wax the "bikini line" which is very high on your thigh into the more tender tissues such as the pantyline crease. If you want to use a depilatory agent for this area, you must be very, very careful and choose a product that is SPECIFICALLY designed just for this close and tender skin area.

Or if you want a closer shave, you may mean the labia in which case (a) a professional salon can get pretttty darn close, but I don't know "how close" they will go, (b) if you're talking about going "bald" then your best bet is to shave yourself, or if you have a boyfriend, ask him to help.

I'm a waxing fan. Yes, there is momentary pain . . . there might even be a little irritation for a day or two . . . but it lasts a number of weeks and the hair thins out over time.

I tried posting this yesterday but it said my ip was banned.

Okay, Surgi cream is cheap and is a cream you put on your face. It works nicely and is a lot better as far as pain goes then waxing.

I do go to the salon for my eyebrows but I swear by the surgi cream for my upper lip.

I am to chicken to wax the bikini line.

Good luck.

I can relate to your dislike for hair.

I shave everything, including my head.

Caution shaving your private area beacause this can lead to ingrown hair which can be painful.
