1. I have never had a Brazilian wax before. Is it painful, how long will it take and how should I prepare?
The wax doesn’t take longer than 15 minutes. Regardless of what people say, it doesn’t hurt that much, otherwise women would not do it over and over again.
It’s important that after the wax, you don’t exercise or go swimming (avoid sweating the waxed area) because the sweat can encourage skin redness and irritation.
It’s normal for the skin to be more sensitive for 24 hours after the wax.
If you feel uncomfortable you don’t have to take your underwear off. It’s absolutely up to you.
2. If I have shaved my hair, how long should I wait before a wax?
Generally, you should wait a minimum of 2 weeks.
3. How often should I wax?
The best interval between waxes is 4 to 6 weeks. However, the length of the hair can never be too long.
4. What should I do if I have in-grown hairs?
There are 2 rules:
Rule 1: Never pick them, because it could result in scars.
Rule 2: Try to exfoliate at least once a week. It’s really good to use normal ordinary cooking salt, as it’s an antiseptic.
If your in-grow hairs get out of control, you can use ‘In-Grow Go’ lotion. It costs £11 and it lasts a reasonable amount of time. It helps.
5. I am pregnant. Will it be safe to have a wax?
It’s absolutely safe to have the wax done whilst you’re pregnant.
6. What type of wax do you do?
I only do strip wax.
7. Will I be able to sunbathe after the wax?
It’s best if you sunbathe 24 hours after the wax, as the area will be sensitive.
