I’m a first timer Brazilian Wax – What to expect?03 April 2018
Brazilian waxing leaves you clean and completely smooth on your Vjayjay area. Clean and silky like a baby!
Brazilian waxes differ from regular bikini waxes because hair is removed in the front, back, and everything in-between.
There are several variations. Namely, the “landing strip” which leaves a neat rectangle at the front, and the Triangle, which leaves the modest above the intimate area.
However, many clients opt for the “Hollywood Wax or Brazilian Wax,” where everything is removed.
At Pink Parlour, we charge 1 friendly price regardless of which variation you prefer.
Most waxings occur in a private room with a door and take between 15 and 30 minutes. You’ll be left alone to remove everything from the waist down and lie on a table covered in clean paper or sheets. You may be provided with a paper thong and if not, you can ask for one. Tip look for a salon that provides shower facilities as it makes the whole process more enjoyable and hygienic. All Pink Parlour’s around Asia have these facilities not many have showers so look out for that.
After showing you will head to your waxing room. The waxer is going to see everything. Dont embarrassed because your therapist has seen it all and a thousand times over.
How long should my hair be or should i shave first?
A general rule of thumb is that hair needs to be 1cm. If it’s fine, and a half-inch if it’s coarse, according to Wendi Chan, owner of SE Asian hair removal specialist Pink Parlour.
Any shorter and it’s too hard for the wax to grab. You’ll be sent home if your hair isn’t long enough.
You also don’t want your hair to be too long, because this makes it more painful. You can help the waxer out by trimming your hair with a shaver a day or two before you go in. Dont worry If your hair is much longer than required, your waxer may trim your pubic hair to the correct length.
Before waxing your therapists will explain what will happen step by step then ask you to open your legs wide.
Waxing Steps :
Your therapist should disinfect her hands and wear gloves during the wax and she should never double-dip the wooden waxing stick into the wax. Instead, she should use fresh sticks for each application. She should tell you what she is doing so you are kept in the know.
There are hard wax and soft wax processes that can achieve the same look. Most salons use soft wax but the more professional salons use Hard Wax because it way less painless than strip wax so always ask if they use hard wax
- The waxer will liberally apply talcum powder to the skin. The talcum keeps hot wax from sticking to skin.
- The best waxers are fast, which means less discomfort for you. The waxer will dip a wooden waxing stick into a pot of hot wax and then spread it onto your skin and hair in the direction of hair growth.
- When the wax has cooled, she will pull it off or in case of strip wax, the strip paper, in the opposite direction of your hair growth. This quick motion pulls the hairs out by the root. If it is too painful at this point, ask the technician to apply strips to smaller areas at a time. If it’s unbearable, you might have to ask them to stop completely. THATS why we strongly suggest only hard wax which sticks to the hair only and not your skin!
- Since the Brazilian means everything off except for a “landing strip” in the front, don’t be surprised when the technician removes the hair from between the buttocks. Yes, hair does grow there. You may be asked to turn over and lie on your stomach or you may be asked to kneel on the table and don’t be embarrassed if you’re asked to hold your cheeks apart. The good news is, this part isn’t painful for most people.
6. Once the waxing is complete, the waxer will tweeze any stray hairs
- The waxer should spread soothing lotion over the waxed areas. Opt for Pink Parlour Boudoir after care lotion Soothing Calm Lotion. Available for purchase in store.
After the session is over the therapists who really care should provide you with a basic tips on how to look after your down there in the next few days. Ask for this advice before leaving because it will keep you VJJ in good looking condition vs pimple
How to Cut Down on the Pain :
Waxing, in general, can be very painful, especially your first time. Be sure your waxer knows to be gentle with you if you are susceptible to pain or if this is your first time.
Here are a few tips to cut down on the pain:
* If you are new to waxing, we don’t recommend starting with a Brazilian. Try a regular or high bikini wax instead. After a few sessions, you’ll find the waxings are much less painful. Then you can graduate to a Brazilian.
* Book the appointment for at least a week after your period. “It’s best to wax midcycle, right around the time you’re ovulating,” says Jodi Shays, owner of Queen Bee Salon & Spa in Los Angeles, in Allure Magazine.
* Get waxed regularly every three to four weeks. If you wait longer or only get waxed a couple times a year, it will be much more painful.
* Find a salon that uses a “hard wax.” When used correctly, it can be much less painful than the commonly used soft wax. Once applied, hard wax hardens as it cools, shrink-wrapping individual hairs. The wax is then gently pulled off.
* You can apply a topical anesthetic, such as Relax and Wax No-Scream Cream, 45 minutes before the procedure. But some pros swear numbing creams don’t work!
Before you leave the salon, be sure to ask your waxer for any aftercare tips she may have. It’s best to be proactive against any potential side effects from waxing. You’ll also want to avoid anything that can irritate the skin for a few days. That includes wearing loose clothing, using fragrance-free products, and no rough sex, hot yoga, or sweaty workouts.
If, after the wax, you develop bumps, redness or ingrown hairs, gently exfoliate the area with a body scrub and then smooth on a lotion like Soothing Calm Lotion.
We also hear great things about Pink Parlour Smoothing Lotion to keep ingrown hairs at bay.
Should i Regularly Wax?
The downside of a Brazilian wax is that it only lasts three to six weeks. The hair will grow back—albeit finer and lighter—and you’ll have to do it again. Veterans of the Brazilian swear that the first time hurts the worse and that the pain dramatically lessens with the more waxings you get.
Why every three to four weeks? That’s typically the exact time it takes for your hair to hit that magical 1 cm length. If you have coarser hair, or hair that doesn’t grow fast, you may be able to hold off up to six weeks.
