I finally gave into the hype and got my first Brazilian wax! Shoutout to the ladies over at Wax, Thread & Scissors in Buckhead for being so sweet, professional and informative.
Well, let's start with it certainly HURTS. Not as bad as I anticipated but still a wild feeling. I got the Nufree option which is supposedly less painful (and more expensive) than regular wax. As long as you stay relaxed and breathe, you'll be totally fine! It went by so quickly - no more than 15 minutes. That's definitely one of the reasons it was well worth it for me. Beauty is pain, and 15 minutes of pain for 3-4 weeks of beauty is a good tradeoff. I wore a skirt so that it would be super easy to remove and still be comfortable after the wax. Your area is gonna be a little sticky, maybe red and possibly even itchy afterwards so wearing cotton underwear is gonna be your best bet!
The aftercare was pretty simple: exfoliate everyday to prevent ingrown hairs and bumps and don't shave! As tempting as it can get, shaving will completely ruin all that hard work so just don't do it lol.
I'm going on my 4th week and my hair has been growing back a lot slower and more fine. I'm almost ready for my next appointment! I'm a little nervous but with swimsuit season in full effect, I'm gonna have to put on my big girl panties and get it doneeee!
