A couple of years ago I took the plunge and went to get a Brazilian wax. I was a little bit nervous but my curiosity about it was getting the best of me, plus I needed to know what it felt like BEFORE I could rightly promote it to my clients. Fortunately, I had a fellow esty I trusted who was kind, patient and understanding about my first time experience. It’s because of her bedside mannerism that I was not terrorized and ran away screaming with a scorched “kitty-kat” as I have heard so many others do.
After getting it done, I was amazed by how much I liked it. Interesting, because I used to laugh at my cousin who always got Brazilians done. I just didn’t understand why . Well now I know, for me and for most people the reasons are similar.
- It’s makes you feel cleaner
- It makes you feel fresher because there is no hair which results in less sweating. Less sweating, means less odor
- It allows for more spontaneity, got a spur of the moment invite to the beach or pool ? have a special date ? No problem ! The hair has been removed a couple of weeks ago and you are ready !
- Less risk of razor bumps and hyperpigmentation around the bikini area, which could cause a girl to feel a little bit insecure in a bathing suit.
Brazilian waxing is the process of removing all the hair from the pubic area including the back area between the butt cheeks (yeah there is hair there too). It is not a new technique although the name “Brazilian waxing ” was popularized during the late 1980″s. Full hair removal of the pubic region has a history that dates back to local customs in India between 4000-3000 BC.
It can feel a little bit embarrassing at first because let’s be honest …you are showing all of your “bizness” to someone who wouldn’t normally have the privilege of seeing it . The usual time for this service usually fall within the range of 7- 45 min. depending on the amount of hair you have, how squirmish you are, and the skill & technique of the therapist doing it. People also worry about the pain. “Does it hurt ?” they ask, well of course it does ! lol ! Momentarily… However, you can ask your friends where do they go, read local reviews for facilities that specialize in it. You should find a therapist that is confident, trained, careful and with whom you are comfortable with and it should be a decent experience.
So are you bold enough to go Brazilian this summer ?
