How to prepare for your wax
Hair must be at least a quarter of an inch long (about the length of a grain of rice) in order to properly be removed. This usually amounts to about 4 weeks of hair growth.
Taking ibuprofen or a pain reliever 20 minutes before your appointment will help lessen discomfort. Topical anesthetics are available as well to ease discomfort.
WAX AROUND YOUR CYCLE (For Brazilians)
While we can wax you during your cycle, it’s best to wait five days after or before to decrease sensitivity.
Exfoliating the night before or day of is the key to a clean wax and fewer ingrown hairs.
Waxing three days before going to the beach or pool is ideal. For sensitive women, it can take a few days for redness to go down, and salt water | chlorine can cause irritation.
LOOSE FITTING CLOTHES
Wearing loose fitting clothes for the first 24 hours will keep the area from experiencing any irritation.
IT GETS EASIER
The more you wax, the thinner and less hair that grows. Your waxes will become significantly less painful each time as long as you do not shave in between!
