Nice! On a scale of 1-10, how painful was it? Did anyone go with you for moral support?

Yay. Just so you know, the first one HURTS SO BAD.

When you go back in a month, you’ll have less than 50% hair grow back. The second time was like, a million times better and my gfirst time hurt so terribly it was ridiculous. The more hair=the more pain. So don’t be turned off to go back!

I love it. I"m addicted. I will never go back to the bush =]. I feel less self-conscious of it when naked walking around..for some reason, being bare makes me feel more like "i’m cool!" walking around =]

So, this is a weird question, but I really don’t know the answer.

How much hair should you have when you go in for the wax? Should everything be ‘growing in’ so they can wax it? And hsould the hair be short, or should you let it get long? And (weird, I know) does all the hair have to be like the same length? In case ther are certain small areas/parts that you dont shave all the time?

Sorry if its Too Much Information, but thanks!

1/4" inch. If it’s too much they’ll trim it.

THe first time, I took an electric bikini razor to it and set it to the 1/4" length. Trim trim trim….and no problems. My aesthetician took care of it all for me.If it’s long it pulls on the wax more and you’ll bruise. Too short and it wont’ catchh. 

Yesk there certain parts she’ll be spreading wax (your labia?! It’s freaky feeling and I’d NEVER touch a razor to that) and she was all "no big deal!" aobut it.

You are a brave, brave woman. I keep wanting to try this, but have chickened out more than once.

Where do y’all get yours done at? Just a regular hair salon or somewhere else?

Mine was horrible and I will never do it again!  The pain was so bad that she ended up leaving a lot more hair that I was hoping.  I had pain for days!  Fiance could not go near it.  It was just awful….bright red and blotchy.

As soon as the redness started to go away, the ingrowns started!  This was by far the worst, most painful thing I have done.

For those of you whom it worked for…you are soo lucky!

I think I could get over the pain, it’s the invasiveness that stops me from getting this done. Shaving will have to do…

I go to sort of a posh chic spa and salon. Only b/c i had one of those spafinder gift certificates through work and this was the closest place to me. I equated nice salon=better quality which i know isn’t true. They use all Aveda products and I love Aveda.

Use hydrocortizone to get rid of the ingrowns. You shouldn’t have that many, though…you might have just had a really bad experience heathaah!

Yes, it’s really invasive. But the lady I see is young and super fashionable and she told me on my first visit that at first, it weirded her out. And now she just shrugs and go, "it’s like an arm to me. a hairy arm" 

I also use this Aveda Calming oil (it smells like roses! but mild, not old lady) to keep things smooth, not-sticky, and feeling better down there. You don’t get chafing and it cuts down on the irritation. It helps the redness go in away in about 48 hours.

I have never done this and am actually completely confused on how your sitting when this is happening-are you just all out there in the open?  VULNERABLE?
