    If you keep it up, it gets less painful. Also, if you go to a place that uses hard wax, it hurts less. Make sure you don’t drink caffeine before going and consider taking an NSAID first.

    I got my first on about 3 months ago and have gotten it done 2 more time since (every 4 weeks).  The difference between the first and second was HUGE.  It still hurt, but less.  More importantly, it look way less time.  I have super corse hair, so believe me, it was terrible the first time.  The third time was better too.  I will never go back to shaving.  Good Luck!  I know it is differnet for each person.  May just try it once more in 4 weeks and see the difference.  If you don’t see an improvement, then stop.

    It gets way way easier as you go along! Also the more you wax the less hair grows back over time (those occasional spots of broken skin you get from waxing won’t grow hair back) but it’s very, very gradual. I’ve been alternating between an “enhanced” bikini wax and a brazilian for a few years now and the difference between regularly waxed hair and not regularly waxed hair is quite noticable now.

    @mrsSonthebeach:  This is totally true. I have been to places that use both regular/strip wax and the hard wax and hard wax hurts SO MUCH LESS. Still not a great feeling, but really not as bad. I have been told that the hard wax sticks to your skin less and therefore hurts less.

    It gets much, much easier, but only if you keep up with it. Once a year is ALWAYS going to feel like the first time.

    I go to a place that uses hard wax, and I’ve been doing it for about two years now. My hair ‘down there’ is much MUCH thinner now and it doesn’t hurt nearly as badly, and I don’t need to get it done as often.

    Now I go once about every two months.

    If I were you and had very, very thick hair, I’d go get touched up every few weeks. If you go BEFORE all the hair comes back in, it’ll hurt less because less hair getting pulled out = less pain.

    I thought there was no way in hell I could even survive a second brazilian wax.  Turns out–they aren’t kidding when they say the hair grows back with a different texture, and less thick.  The second one was LEAGUES less painful than the first one.  The third and fourth were equally less painful (Seriously, not even bad.  I mean, it’s waxing but it was actually better than when I wax things at home!).  So…after my fourth one right before my wedding I had to schedule my next one six weeks out because I was going to be on vacation during the normal 4th week return window.  Well turns out, AF arrived and I couldn’t go during the 6th week and had to schedule almost 8 weeks later.  Holy hell, that was awful.  The hair had plenty of time to grow back out and it was not cool!!

    @kkish3:  Yep, exactly. :)

    Also hard wax doesn’t require cloth strips- that’s soft wax.

    Hard wax hardens as it cools, and can just be pulled right off by the waxing technician.

    I highly suggest going to the Bliss Spa if you have any near you – as close to painless as possible!

    @kkish3:  Yes, they use hard wax –  other places that use it are not as painful as strips, but Bliss really is the best!
