My first brazilian experience ever was with wax and it was just horrible. It was the worst. That the girl doing it wasn’t really good at it and that it was the first time getting done a brazilian didn’t help. I had to apply ice to the zone latter on.

Then I got a sugaring and it was sooooooo different. It is tricky, though, because the sugar needs to have the right texture for it to not hurt, but for me compared to waxing it is like going to the spa. The sugar doesn’t stick to your skin as opposed to the wax and as you mentioned, the hair is pulled in direction of growth, which makes it hurt less.

My first sugaring was 5 years ago, but 3 years ago I had to change to waxing again, because where I live now, they don’t do sugaring and even studios that wax intimate zones are hard to find. But when I fly home, I always make sure that I have a sugaring appointment and it really feels like spa to me compared to waxing.

My friend went to school for cosmetology and they had to practice sugaring on each other’s armpits. She said girls were straight up sobbing lol.

Like pp said I’ll stick to my trimmer!

Yes, it stops hurting after a few times because your NERVES DIE! Perhaps in time the scientists will triumph and invent a foolproof and painless method of hair removal (although I kind of hope they have better things to do at the moment, lol).

I’ve recently come to the conclusion that there’s enough unescapable hoo-ha torture in my life that I don’t want to add to the list intentionally by deforesting it in new and special ways. Trimmers are just fine :).
