Posted:Just a public service announcement for those of you budding fire trailers... Don't do it where you're hairy. I've been doing it for long enough to know that it burns the hair off. What I didn't know was that if you trail where there's even peach fuzz, it will light and stay lit longer than you want to...I tried painting on my arm and chest... VERY cool looking... Except when my chest wouldn't go out. That part kinda sucked... but I've got a nice hairless patch on my stomach now so I can fearlessly trail away on the balder spots on my body...So if you're going to trail... either burn or shave the peach fuzz off FIRST before trying a saturated trailing wick.(Yeah, yeah Pele, you told me not to trail where there's hair but you didn't tell me WHY! I figured it was just because you didn't want me to have bald patches all over my body...)Also, I've heard that if you shave off hair, it grows in thicker. If you wax off hair or use electrolysis it comes in thinner. What happens if you burn off hair? I guess I'll find out...

Posted:Oh, it certainly grows back... Having stubble on my arm is one thing, having stubble on only one side of my half naked stomach is something COMPLETELY weird though.I can say that it is really good at removing peach fuzz but not as effective as getting a close shave on the thicker hair... Looks like you're going to have to reach back there with a razor Bendy...

Posted:Cassandra - let me guess; your father shaved his shins? My dad has tha same problem but we reckon it's down to the number of wool/abrassive suits he wears. The 'swishing' of the trousers as he walks negates any hair growth although the effect wears off during 'short trouser' season!Highly embarrasing when on holidayas a child, I seem to remember!

---------------------With a bit of luck, his life was ruined; always thinking that just behind some narrow door, in his favourite bars, men in red woolen suits are getting incredible kicks from things he'll never know.

Posted:Oh, Don't you even go there NYC!!!!!I told you and Peregrine that hair singes and smells nasty when burning. What did you think I meant by the term burning, that it would just fall off????

Btw...so that you all know, for electrolosis it can take up to ten years for the hair to stop coming back, after weekly turned monthly visits. Waxing opens pores and so should be done at least a day before trailing. Shave and then apply lotion to prevent brush burns to "delicate" skin. And haven't you ever heard of Nair????? Nice, easy, painless hair removal system. It even comes in a nice raspberry scent!

Posted:ack, burnt hair smell is disgusting, and Cantus is right, it only smells like on thing, and that would be burning hair. And it still smells even after its stopped burning, but the burnt hair looks cool, it almost looks like theres little knobs at the tips of the hair, and yeah, im gonn stop talking now...

Posted:lol yeah Whiffle. :P Seems as if those "knobs" dont go away for awhile either. I've decided that this is the easiest way to tell if someone is a fire performer/deals with fire. Look at their hands/arms. Look closely at the hairs..if they have those little white knobs at the top, they their hair has been burnt. :P All my knucle hairs look like this, as well as most of the under-sides of my arms. I wouldnt dare try to trail across my hairy stomach. Wouldn't want to end up with a bare-patch like NYC :P------------------ [PLUR]-=Crazy Raver Dude=-
