Spring is finally here and summer time is nearly upon us. And that means that women and a few men will be hitting the salons in search for the ultimate solution for those horribly embarrassing hairs that are always threatening to escape your bikini line.
A surprising number of women are turning to a solution mainly made famous by the wonderful girls on Sex & the City, the sometimes dreaded – Brazilian wax.
A lot of women do have there reservations about this type of waxing especially when they find out what it involves, if you’re not aware you might or might not want to read on before you make your decision.
The facts about Brazilian Waxing
Brazilian waxing is perhaps the most convenient form of hair removal because not only does it penetrate deep into the skin, but the hair has a difficult time trying to grow back. This is due to the reaction it has on the root of the hair, it reduces the hair growth giving you a lot more time, so get and forget.. for a while anyway.
There are plenty of options available when considering a Brazilian wax.
The one misconception that a lot of women have is that a Brazilian wax can be done from the comfort of there own home, while this is true I must suggest that it should be carried out by a professional as it is classed as a salon hair removal treatment, trust me on this one I have seen some very squeamish results.
Warm wax is used in conducting a Brazilian wax and it is one type of wax you don’t want to mess around with especially when applying to this region, the wax is used to remove the excess pubic hair from your nethermost regions “front and back!
When sitting down for treatment you will be asked by the beautician what style you would prefer, yes that’s right. Most women choose to go with a small strip of hair (mostly referred to as a “landing strip”). Some also opt for the full monty and be completely done with all hair in that region. So just be prepared to be questioned before treatment. This version of the wax is often known as the “Hollywood” or “Sphynx” Brazilian.
You might be wondering why you would opt to get this type of hair removal treatment done, especially when it involves warm wax, pubic region and some stranger yanking a strip off. Well for one the advantages far outweigh the short-term ouches, that’s my personal opinion.
What are the advantages of a Brazilian Wax?
I probably haven’t done much yet to convince you why you should consider this type of waxing procedure, but there many advantages that come with a Brazilian, suppose it depends who you are and whom you ask. I have listed the most common advantages below.
- No more awkward or embarrassing moments – hair related that is.
- No pain no gain, really it’s not as pain as you would expect. Seriously.
- Say bye bye to no more razor burns or bumps – sounds like an advert for NoNo.
- Your special someone will thank you for it, over and over again – sexy time.
- You can have a wax done for a very low price.
- The pain will gradually ease with every wax completed.
Confidence is also one of the main factors, with many women seeing a rise in confidence – VERY IMPORTANT
The Disadvantages of a Brazilian Wax
Do I really need to mention those, well supposed not everything is perfect. You can imagine what the main disadvantage is, THE BRAZILIAN PAIN FACTOR.
If you have had any type of waxing before you will know it can be a bit painful, especially as some women’s skin can be very sensitive in certain areas. If you are extra sensitive, try and imagine the pain you could encounter in a place that is ten times more sensitive.
There is also another factor, which can be even more scary and traumatic than actual physical pain, the embarrassment factor. Your most private spot in the world will be on show to your beautician. One thing to keep in mind is that they have seen it all before, several times daily and chances are you’re not the worst they have seen. To be quite honest the main disadvantages are mostly over once you get that first wax completed.
There are a couple of other things that may also be thrown into the mix
- You may experience some bumps or irritation – usually gets better have several treatments.
- Since you have to wait approx. 10-14 days in between waxing’s, you’ll still have to suffer through some stubble.
- You might also have a problem locating a salon that does Brazilian waxes; this can be especially difficult in smaller, less populated areas.
- And depending were you opt to get this treatment you may have to pay as much as $100.00 (possibly more) to have it done!
You need to look at Brazilian waxes as something that will get easier after your initial treatment, this is easier said that done.
It is very important that you look for a well established salon to complete the treatment to avoid being put off from ever getting another one, most women already go to salons so hopefully a good relationship has already been established with your beautician.
My advice would be to follow the below points
- Find out about the credentials and experience of the salon and the person who’ll be performing the treatment. Try to avoid someone who is just starting out.
- A lot of women want to go completely bare on the first Brazilian wax, my advice would be to take it slow and start of with a bikini wax and gear your self up to a Brazilian then try the Sphynx. – Don’t dive in the deep end straight off.
- Under no circumstances try to shave or trim before waxing, many women have done this in the past to save themselves from embarrassment. It is essential that your hair length is longer than quarter inch. Remember they have seen it all before.
- Find a good hair inhibiting lotion, you will definitely thank me for this one. This helps you get the most out of your Brazilian wax by enabling you to go longer between sessions. I am currently using Revitol only because I was graced with some samples, it works extremely well. Review Here
A Brazilian wax isn’t for everyone, although out of all my clients and people who I have spoken to, very few have bad mouthed this type of hair removal treatment. I really hope this helps you to choose whether or not a Brazilian is for you. Please let me know your thoughts or if you have questions regarding.
