OK ladies… It’s time to get down and dirty! This topic was requested by one of my followers, whom I’ll let remain anonymous due to the subject matter… Along with trying to obtain a bikini-body by spring, we also need to make sure that we have tamed the bikini zone! Now, some women may prefer shaving over waxing. However,waxing lasts about three weeks to a month! It removes hair from the root, so over a period of time, the hair grows back less! I know some of you are saying:“What about the pain?!” I’m not going to lie, some areas WILL hurt more than others, but if you know it’s something you want to do, prepare yourself ahead of time! Take an OTC (over-the-counter) medicine for minor pain and aches about an hour before your service. Exfoliating the day before may help loosen your hair follicles . ***side eye*** You should also exfoliate after to avoid a bumpy situation!!! Topical anti-inflammatory creams will help, too!
Brazilian, French, or traditional bikini??? That is the question that only YOU can answer! The traditional bikini is about two inches (I think) from the sides and top. If you’ve never waxed your bikini area, I would start there. It’s basic and less painful. French is a little less invasive than a full Brazilian, if you know what I mean… So, if you’re ready to push the envelope, but not quite ready to let it all go, French might be the way to go!
Here are a few take-aways:
- Research spas, estheticians, and the services or use a reliable recommendation.
- Hard wax is the BEST wax!
- Pay attention to housekeeping
- Make sure she either washes her hands or uses gloves! (I’m a germaphobe)!!
- Exfoliate your skin
- (In some cases), you get what you pay for!
I found this article online… http://www.womenshealthmag.com/health/bikini-waxing-dangers. It’s not to scare you, but it’s definitely worth the knowledge!
While the process is painful, so is beauty!! No pain, no gain!! LOL
It also helps to cutbthe hair down low a couple of days before your waxing.For those whom have never had waxing down-below this is also a great way to add excitement to your sex life…(wink)!-Martie, Charlotte, NC
Great point! I hope no one is still rocking a full afro! But, if you've recently shaved, wait at 3-5 days before waxing! Otherwise, you'll need a skin graph! o_O
