How to Prepare
You need AT LEAST two whole weeks of growth! The hair needs to be the length of a grain of rice. If your hair is over an inch long, you may trim with scissors the night before. DO NOT USE ELECTIC CLIPPERS.
Getting waxed when the hair is too short can cause MORE irritation, and the hair does not come out clean. You are causing more pain with bad results - a waste of your hard earned money!
The evening before your wax, exfoliate and moisturize your skin. This will help soften up your skin and follicles.
Wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing to your appointment. Avoid wearing lace underwear, and underwear with a lot of elastic in the bikini area - it is more irritating to the skin.
What to Expect
Your first wax is always the most painful wax. You can expect to be tender for UP TO 48 hours after the first wax (not the case for everyone). Don't worry! Maintenance is so much easier!
Everyone's skin is different, therefore you may have a different experience than your friend who came to see us. The most sensitive skin types may experience redness and raised skin, this is normal. People with very coarse hair may experience Folliculitis, this is NOT life threatening and will clear up within a few days. Most people who experience Folliculitis will not get it again after their second wax. Gentle exfoliation with the use of Witch Hazel and Aloe will help clear Folliculitis sooner.
For easy maintenance, we recommend to wax every 4-6 weeks. Time frames vary from person to person, for hair growth rates are different for each individual.
