Before Your First Time Waxing

Girl, get into it. Once you start waxing, you won't stop. It's just getting THERE that I'm here to prep you for.

Believe it or not, what you heard, may be true. It's definitely not a walk in the park.  I remember my first time like it was yesterday, and bay-be, there a quite a few things I would do different starting with when I went and what I wore to my appointment.

PREPPING TIME

First things first, there is no just showing up. A major tip is to book your appointment 1 week post menstrual cycle. This is the time when you're not a pinch away from crying about everything. 

BEFORE THE BALL ROLLS

Decide whether you're getting a bikini wax or a Brazilian. Whats the difference? Bikini waxes are more of a the coast is clear situation where you can keep your panties on for. A Brazilian is a drop and give me 20 minutes all natural situation- undies are left at the door.

It is a little odd to have a complete stranger down there. So although its a bit awkward, before you go, find a story to tell that will last atlas 15 minutes. The first 5 can be about what brought you there, where she's from, and what she's doing after work. My story? I tell the same one when I go to a new spot- how the last lady never got it all off. Therefore, she has no choice but to aim to please.

    1    LET IT GROW: No shaving at least 1 week before heading to your appointment.Depending on your growth rate, you can be the judge on how long you should wait. Growth should be about the size of a grain of rice.

    2    EXFOLIATE: Making sure there's a clean slate, fresh layer free of dead skin making your wax session easy peasy.

    3    BE OPEN, literally: Let your tech know, she's popping your waxing cherry.

    4    OUCH!  The more hair, the more pain. Over time, there's less hair, and your skin will become a pro to the snatch. This being your first time, it will hurt the most. The second, third, and 20th time, will be smooth sailing. The first time, your hair is thicker, the bulbs are smaller, and that makes it painful. The more you wax, the finer your hair will be, and the bulbs will follow suit.

    5    TAKE TWO LIQUID PAIN RELIEVER GELS: Not everyone has the ability to sit there and just take it. The liquid gels get straight to the point, and brings the pain from a 10 to a 6.

    6    WEAR A DRESS, LOOSE CLOTHES: After waxing, your skin is tender, wearing looser clothing will lay off on the friction/pressure tighter clothes may cause.

Drop the razors, toss the shaving cream, and book your first session! There's a Brazilian reasons to get waxed! Here's just a few:

    ◦    Removes hair for 2-3 weeks depending on your hair growth

    ◦    Hair will grow thinner

    ◦    Darker skin areas will lighten

    ◦    NO BUMBS OR BURNS IN VOLVED, Amen.
