    Screw shaving downward. I’ve been shaving upwards for many, many years and yea, I get nicks sometimes, but it’s never turned into a candidate for amputation!

      you’re still alive so there’s still a chance for it to happen… be careful.

    • AsHLiegh STeVie MaRie-HoPe says:

      Yeah and i get a cut. maybe once every few months…nothin crazy. I’m not gonna shave to still be hairy or picky. If so then I would rather noth shave… no point to me.

      @McBirdsong wow that is crazy. I shave down and it actually has helped me not get ingrowns. I feel bad for ya. Hopefully it wont happen again.

    • asdf ghjk says:

      @AsHLiegh STeVie MaRie-HoPe when I shave dow my legs still feel smooth and they look hairless. I have coarse hair too.

    I’d rather take a chance on getting nicks and cuts than spend time shaving and still have hair on my legs.

    Even razor companies display in their commercials to shave upwards. I’ve seen those kinds of commercials since before I was old enough to shave. Misinformation I suppose.
