Take a few Advils before you go and relax. If you’re tense, it will be more painful! good luck!

I get wax done and I love it. My first time, I’m not gonna lie to you it hurt a bit. But my girl who does it, is a good friend of mine and when I go see her we just talk and talk and catch up on life. So the first time I got it done, she just made me talk the whole time so I wouldnt pay to much attention to the pain. It did help a bit.

Now I go once a month or so. Sometimes I can go 5 weeks before going back to see her. She does a fantastic job.

Ditto with the advil and relax.  Also- throw your modesty out the window.  Just like the doctor they’ve seen it all before : )  I’ve been getting them for 4 years- one every 5 to 6 weeks.  You’ll be fine.  And LOVE the results.

It’s totally worth it. Once you start waxing, you don’t look back. I use to shave as well and would get the same problems as you; with waxing, everything is smooth and clean for weeks! As for advice, I agree with PP, take some Advil and relax. Try not to psyche yourself out, just remember that millions of women wax, it’s routine, no big deal.

I take two ibuprofens before I go just to take a bit of the edge off the ouch factor. I won’t lie. It hurts. BUT – if she uses the hard wax (not the strips) and moves quickly – meaning when she starts bending your legs in funny places, just relax and go with it (haha) – it is (IMHO) sooooooo worth it.  The only drawback is that you have to let it grow in quite a bit before you get it waxed or rewaxed, so if you shave – you have to stop and let it get a little uhh… natural … down there first  🙂     For that reason, I’m planning on getting it lasered eventually.

Find someone you really feel comfortable with and tip her well – I LOVE the lady I go to and that makes all the difference, seeing as she’s all up in there and has probably seen more of me than Fiance or my gyno.

Yes!  Ditto on making sure the waxer used hard wax.  Not the wax that needs the muslin strips!

I’m doing my 3rd trip today. The first trip hurt but it goes away within a minute. I decided to keep up on it because the grow in was much better. I usually get bad razor burn. I take 4 advils a half hour prior. Definitely relax. I try to exhale when I see her getting ready to pull.

What makes the hard wax better? Mine uses hot.

Make sure you go to an experienced waxer, ditto on the Advil and consider using something like the Bliss Ingrown Eliminating Pads after the wax is done – I think they work really well!

comfort level with the waxer is key. they get all up in your junk, so be prepared to spread em wide, even your cheeks. a good waxer will explain it to you and make you feel comfortable. i chit chat with mine the whole time. she’s great. also, ask for a sample of a soothing gel or buy a bottle afterward. it really does help. mine uses the strips for the top part and my thighs, but hard wax for all the really sensitive areas.

Exfoliate a few days prior, GENTLY, shower before if you can, no lotions or anything on your zone….don’t feel creepy or awkward, it’s just like getting anything else done, they’ve seen it all, if it really hurts, cough when they pull, it’ll distract you from it, after I use No Bump Solution, keeps the ingrowns away and keeps it smooth!
