Well I can't believe that after my post on "To wax or not to wax" I actually FORGOT to update my blog on my adventures in waxing. So before I went on vacation I called my aesthician and booked an appointment for a full head to toe wax. Eyebrows, top lip (cause you know I paranoid), legs and bikini. I sealed my fate when I told her "I'm going all the way!..In the interest of science of course." Meaning of all I was going to take the plunge and take the full brazillian. Everything was coming off.
Well maybe it was such not a great idea to try and do everything in one sitting lol.By the time she got ready to do the bikini area I had take nuff pull already.In addition to which I had let things grow out quite a bit which was also probably not a great idea in hindsight.Like I was not paying attention in waxing school cause I forgot that the longer /thicker the hair, the more it hurts. Seeing that I had to do an emergency bikini shave sometime before I had both problems. On the other hand, when its longer the finish is much smoother as you get all the little hairs that would otherwise now be growing out.Well I had to keep the small talk going at a mile a minute to distract myself. But overall ,it was not as bad as I thought it would be even when she got to the nether regions. I think I inadvertently made it harder on myself by letting it grow out as long as I did.
So I took one for the team and can tell you all you can deal with it!! My threshold for pain is very low. I did make one unforgivable mistake...I forgot to walk with my loofah on vacation which my aesthician directly instructed me to do. So for that week I was not exfoliating and I thought I got away with it.... only to see some ingrowns trying to rear their ugly heads much later on. I am busy doing remedial works to try and save myself from futher discomfort. Remember , the loofah is your friend!
