How To Prepare for a Brazilian Wax

What to know about Brazilian Waxing before you go. Here are some pointers for the uninitiated.
The first thing you should do before your Brazilian Wax is stop shaving and make an appointment 2 to 5 weeks out. I know, that seems like an eternity, but your hair grows in cycles, and we can wax more hair during your appointment. Make sure that your appointment does not coincide with your menstrual cycle. The week prior to your cycle can be especially sensitive!
Keep a trimmer handy and trim down the hair as it grows out. I really only need a 1/4 of an inch, or the size of a grain of rice to wax. Anything longer and a Brazilian wax can be painful. Begin exfoliating and moisturizing now. I have a great product called PFB that chemically exfoliates and does not contain parabens. This will help pop out the hair and prevent ingrown hairs. Love it!
Make sure you go someplace clean! I am such a clean freak (raised by a nurse) and hyper aware of cross contamination. I always wear gloves. I never double dip my wax stick.
Your esthetician should tell you how to care for your skin after your wax. I always email a list of “do’s and don’ts” to help prevent ingrown hairs and make each wax the most efficient.
After your wax you will love that clean, smooth feeling and be relatively hairless for two to three weeks. With regular waxes, your hair will grow in more slowly and thinner. Most clients book their waxes every 4 to 6 weeks to maintain that smooth feeling. In the summer, every 3 to 5 weeks is more common.
