Disclaimer!! – If anyone is shy or leans more on the prude side when it comes to talking about the body, this one probably isn’t for you. I could easily talk all day about subjects like this, but I’ll try to keep it short for you! No pun intended.
So let’s get to it! Ladies, I’m a firm believer that keeping your lady parts clean and neat is not only more hygienic, but an important ritual for your overall health. When it comes to waxing particularly, it’s best to keep hair at most the length of a grain of rice, or even a bit shorter, but not too short! The longer it is, greater the pain will be when the wax comes off, and If it’s too short, it could cause the hair to break whilst waxing.
First time? What you need to know.
1. Sorry sis, but the first time will most likely hurt. Like a lot.
Everyone’s pain tolerance varies when it comes to hair removal process. While some women are clutching the bed shaking and can’t wait for it to be over with, others are reading a magazine or checking their phones. The more you do it, the less it will hurt.
2. The more often you receive this treatment, the less hair will grow back.
Not only does the pain decrease over time, but so does the hair. How great is that?! You know what they say, not a desert but not a forest? Well this treatment will most likely give you the perfect balance over time, but to those who prefer a desert or forest, all power to ya!
3. Exfoliate, exfoliate exfoliate!
Guys. This step is so important I can’t stress it enough. When it comes to any part of the body that’s being waxed, exfoliating beforehand is the best way to ensure a clean pull, no broken hairs, and no ingrown hairs! Those can be very painful, so be sure to use a nice scrub or exfoliating glove before and after the treatment. Trust me, you’ll thank me later.
4. Don’t be shy, speak up!
This is such an important lesson in life for literally anything. If the process is far too painful for you to bare, please for the love of God say something. It could be that the hair is too long or your pain tolerance isn’t as strong as you thought. And that’s okay! The person who is giving the service wants you to feel as safe and comfortable as humanly possible, but they’ll never know how you’re doing if you don’t speak up.
5. Invest in the right products.
Did you know that regular soap you buy from Target or Walgreens can throw off the PH balance in your skin? Yep. Especially in that lovely area. Regular soaps will get the job done when it comes to cleaning up, but it also causes the vagina to be more odorous (not the natural odor btw!) due to the antiseptics and fragrances in the soap, which may not be so nice for you or your s/o. So, I highly recommend you use a more mild soap that was designed for that special area.
