Bikini wax plus...

    Re: Bikini wax plus...

    Fra, once you get used to it, it's easy to wax your underarms.  I'm a righty, and can do it with my left hand just fine.  It used to take me a while when I first started, but now I'm in and out in under 5 minutes.  It's worth it.  I feel that waxing is the way to go.  You don't have to worry about the hair growing in all stubbly and having to worry about shaving your underarms every day. 

    I would do laser if it weren't so expensive!!  At least on my bikini.

    I love waxing I wish I had the money to do it often...because I'm too chicken to do it myself!

    I learned that applying baby oil after shaving or wax helps to keep the red bumps away!

    Made an appointment for underarms, legs, and bikini!  Can't wait!  And the salon/spa has a coupon right now for first time clients so I get 50% off.  Niiiiiiiiice! 
    Only drawback is I have to do it all on the same day.  I wanted to do bikini first and then the other two a few days later.  Something tells me my endorphins or whatever are going to be used up and whatever they do last will HURT.

    Hey Fra - congrats!  Sounds like the salon issue has worked itself out too  :)

    oh, there's always a missed spot... It's so much easier for another person to get it, it's like a cruel trick!

    [QUOTE]Whatever they do last will actually feel better because of the endorphins.  The first waxed area will cause the endorphins to flow and you'll have that natural pain killer in your system for the rest of it. I actually waxed my own Brazillian yesterday!  Now, that HURT REALLY BAD!!!!! And, what's worse, I couldn't quite get it all, uh, where it was harder to reach, and now I think I need to go to a salon and get fixed.  Good luck, Fram!!!

    I tried waxing my own legs once, got halfway through one and all of the endorphins had run out!!  BUT the salon is much different.  They will be quicker with bigger strips so I HOPE it will be fine :o)

    Yeah, they usually recommend cold wax so that no one goes burning their business down there. But, some folks swear by it. It just depends. I don't know how anyone could get the skin taught in some of those places. Makes you wish that Nair stuff was safe to use in that area.

    [QUOTE]Thanks, my friend.  It was awful.  I truly thought, "I can't do another strip," but I kept going, screaming every time.  Yes, like in 40 Year Old Virgin...worse.  I can't get the skin taught enough at the bad angles.  You know?  Yikes, I can't believe I did what I did.  I've just read that cold wax works much better for Brazilian waxing.  Oh, well.  Too late now.

    it's like getting a shot, you've just got to psych yourself up and keep thinking "The pain doesn't last, the results will!"

    Can somebody invent a cheap laser-removal option already? I'll be the 1st in line!

    The salon I go to get my brazillian done uses a warm wax... somewhere in between a cold and hot wax.  It's the best thing.  Plus, she's so quick, I barely notice.  I'd say I'm in an out in about 15 minutes.  Totally worth it to go there rather than hassling trying to do it myself.  I can do my own underarms, but bikini is difficult for those tough to reach spots.

    where do you go? I just found out I'll be going to Florida in June and I want to go to a salon so that  I can get it done quick a day or two before.

    If anyone's thinking of doing it but worried about the pain, you should find a place that does warm waxing.  I think there are some places on Newbury street that do it that way...and they are not that expensive if you are only doing bikini and not brazilian.  I used to go to a place that was $30, I think. 
    Also, I agree about the Tend Skin.  Definitely helps with the bumps....but it's super expensive!!@!

    I have never been to a place that didn't use warm wax.
    I heard Tend Skin is either being discontinued or replaced with another product.  I love it for the rare ingrown or bumps.  If you like it I suggest buying a big bottle.

    That's interesting.  In LA, all the places I've been to are hot wax, not warm wax. 
    Perhaps I'm using the terms incorrectly.  I think of hot wax as the kind where they use a strip of material to pull it off and warm wax as the kind where they don't.

    Re: Bikini wax plus...

    Hi Liz!  If you ask me, waxing isn't so bad.  It hurts for like 10 seconds after they rip off the strip.  But I'm lucky - I don't get redness or bumps or irritation - not even in the bikini area.  For my underarms a couple weeks ago, the woman used like two strips on each so it was really quick.  I went to Laschi Salon in Reading.  My first time there.  It was great except the bikini wax was kind of a hack job and I had to make it symmetrical when I got home.  (Luckily I had a waxing kit from CVS that I usually use.)

    You will still have some hair because your hair grows in cycles and even though much of it will be long and pulled off, some of it will be shorter and won't come off.  So I did have to shave my legs and underarms a couple of times on the honeymoon.  But they look SO much better.  What I was shaving was like 1/4 the amount of hair I would usually be shaving! And even if I had let it go, it probably wouldn't have been very visible.
