Have you attempted any other at home waxing with different areas? I would start with your legs or something first before messing with that area.

…  Is that physically possible?  I’ve only had a brazilian once, but I don’t think I could manuever to reach all of those places.  It was definitely a two person job, lol.

Back in the day i used to be a competitive swimmer, and used Sally Hansen for my bikini parts, and under arms.  There is cream to put on after, definitely USE it.  As for doing your own Brazilian … good luck!!

I tried.  Mistake.  And I wax everything else myself.

I DIY wax all the time, maybe not full on brazilian, I like to leave a tiny bit. A hand mirror definetly helps. I have a wax pot that I just put on the stove to heat up, I’m not sure what brand it is tho. the wax is green and you just pull the wax off, no strips needed.

i do it all the time!

all of sally hansen’s kits are pretty good. make sure you get real, microwaveable wax and not just wax strips though. the strips do nothign for me.

make sure your wax is not too hot — SO important. you’ll probably have to microwave it a few times — wax a little, microwave, wax a little, microwave, etc. test it on the inside of your wrist like you would a baby’s bottle.

it’s easiest for me while i’m laying down. put a towel down under you, because it gets messy. there will be a lot of strings of wax going everywhere until you get a hang of the wand, so some extra towels around you would be a good thing too.

i would never in a million years give myself a brazillian wax and i have been getting them for years.  and i have also waxed my legs, underarms, and bikini line myself…but brazillian, nope, not gonna happen.

however, the person that used to wax me for years (i moved recently) told me she does it to herself. but she is a professional…

@inexplicablecomfort:it’s really not that hard to get all the angles yourself. it just takes a little practice and a little flexibility. the only area i can’t reach that a professional can is my asscrack.

I tried…more then once…huge mistake…each time.

I also don’t mind getting them, I really don’t think they’re that painful when someone else is doing it. It was excruciating to do it myself for whatever reason, and wax gets everywhere, and it isn’t as clean of a job as the pros. 

I DO NOT recommend DIY brazilians.
