Things to Know About Brazilian Waxing

  • Your hair needs to be ¼ inch (size of a grain of rice)
  • Wait 5 days after shaving to insure that your hair is long enough

  • Wax several days prior to going on vacation

  • The butt area hurts the least (there are no nerve endings there)

  • Your waxer won't judge your vagina. She is a professional and has seen it all. View her like you would your gynecologist

  • You are more sensitive near your period. I recommend not waxing 3 days before or after your period

  • Shower and lightly exfoliate right before your appointment

  • Take a pain killer such as Tylenol 30-45 minutes prior to your appointment to help with pain

  • Avoid working out after waxing

  • Wait to tan for 2 days after waxing

  • Wear loose clothing to your appointment

  • Sex is not recommended after you wax

  • Exfoliate the area 3 days after your appointment to avoid ingrown hairs
