First Time Brazilian Wax Experience - Precautions and Preparations
Wanna feel sexy? Maybe thinking of being naughty tonight? How about trying some Brazilian waxing today? But, before you get jump into the bed of a waxing specialist, there are several things you must consider. For example, we both know there are countless spa around the city, so which spa would you choose? How much is your budget? Are you willing to pay a few more bucks? What are the things you must consider before you go as well as the restrictions after the treatment.
Here are some suggestions on what you should do before and after.
Handling the Wax
You have to consider 2 things when you’re getting your first Brazilian wax session. First, it hurts and second, you should be comfortable laying a table with your vagina exposed to a stranger. From your hair is getting pulled out by the root to tears streaming down your face to shouting at the top of your lungs with each pull or not being able to walk after will be a normal sight for starters. As far as showing your vagina to a stranger, you can't get around that. Either you know the person or you don't. Just don't make it weird, they see a lot so they won't make it weird.
Ask around. If you happen to have a friend that has had a wax or a friend that is an esthetician would be best. That friend can answer questions and give suggestions on places to go. They may even be able to give you a spa name and their referral for who to go to I say go there. This may not be an option if they live a lifestyle you can't afford but they can still give you tips on how to deal with a wax in general. If that is the case, keep reading I have tips on finding a spa starting from scratch.
Use the Internet
Second suggestion search spas then look at the people and read reviews. When looking at the people I'm talking about through the spa's website. Most spas have a website which then has some page that is something to the effect of "meet the staff" or the like. Look at that and there should be a head esthetician. Look at their experience, a lot of experience is a good sign. Also, not every spa has a website. It's up to you to decide to give it a shot or not.
When searching for a spa to go to you have to keep price in mind. Waxes are a luxury so they aren't cheap but they shouldn't be an extravagant amount either.
What do you do before you go get a wax? Use the toilet and make sure to have on deodorant but there is a bit more to it than that.
- Be Clean - a warm shower opens up your pores so the hair will come out easier. If you have to use the bathroom it's ok if you end up doing that right before you walk in for the wax. It's better to not have to worry about holding it while your waxer is working.
- Be Calm - You don't want to be stressed out when you’re getting a wax. If you are tense you're more likely to flex your muscles which will then hold the hair follicle more making the hair hurt more coming out.
- Wear Comfy Clothes - It really depends on you what you wear on top but on bottom. something loose fitting. The skin will also be sensitive afterwards so if you wear something tight it will probably rub and irritate you. I wouldn't suggest a thong even though a well-fitting one doesn't rub only because there may be wax residue on you after and that can get weird.
- Optional Pain Relief - You can take a pain killer if you're really worried about the pain, just take it an hour or so before your appointment.
It's different for every person and each esthetician’s practices vary so these aren't rock solid rules, more like good guidelines.
- No Vigorous Activity - It wasn't pain it’s nota good idea to get really sweaty down there after that sort of process. You'll be able to tell based on how you feel if you will follow this rule.
- Exfoliate - To keep from getting ingrown hairs you need to exfoliate once in a while. Ask for suggestions at the spa. Some people are more prone to ingrowns and some people aren't. It's just a good idea to keep clean and not let dead skin build up. Plus it's often been an experience that there is some “wax” residue on the skin afterwards.
