Brazilian waxing, the most popular form of bikini waxing, was first introduced to North America in the late 1980s by seven sisters from Brazil. Regular bikini wax, also referred to as American wax, full bikini wax, and French wax are some additional types of bikini waxing.
In essence, the Brazilian wax removes hair from the front, back, and everywhere in between. Following additional waxing sessions, hair grows back thinner and more slowly because the process of removing hair from the root weakens the hair follicle over time. Therefore, less frequent waxing would be required.
Most women get their Brazilian wax removed for hygiene reasons. Since hard or non-strip wax is typically more gentle than soft wax, it is frequently chosen for waxing sensitive areas. Just a quick tip for you! The day before your waxing appointment, exfoliate in the shower to remove dead skin and make it easier for the wax to grab shorter hairs.
The truth is that Brazilian waxing has drawbacks, such as the requirement that hair be a specific length and the possibility of ingrown hairs and red bumps. An ingrown nail can be caused by anything that rubs against your clothing, like your jeans. Dry exfoliation is one of the best methods for preventing ingrown hairs because it removes dead skin cells without irritating the skin.
Some people might consider using DIY (Do-It-Yourself) waxing sessions because they find waxing to be so simple or expensive. They don’t know how to get started or which DIY wax or kit to buy, which is the issue. Living in this technological generation, the first thing any young person would do to gather information is to “google”. They read articles from websites like Wikipedia or About.com and ask questions in forums.
Having said that, here are some justifications for letting professionals handle their areas of expertise, straight from the forums and articles.
- Especially on delicate areas, waxing calls for extreme caution. Professionals will be able to prevent mishaps like bleeding and skin tears.
- When you don’t know what you’re doing, it hurts more. Professionals are skilled in working with wax and hair. As a result, the least amount of skin will be pulled and the majority of hair will be cut right away.
- Injury can result from purchasing the incorrect wax or wax that is of poor quality and pulling in the wrong direction.
- You are aware of the exact moment you will be pulling the wax, and you might end up backing out. You can’t leave the wax in its current state because you risk pulling it slower or leaving it on for too long. It hurts more!
- You might leave a lot of stray hairs that might be too difficult to remove because there are many difficult-to-reach areas. The only option left to you may be to use a razor or spend hours cleaning up the mess. Never use a razor again after waxing; doing so is equivalent to not waxing at all.
The ability to plant an apple tree does not guarantee that the fruit will be sweet and juicy. Likewise, just because you are an expert at waxing doesn’t mean you will get the results you want. DIY waxing can be less expensive than professional studio waxing, but does less expensive always equal better?
