The Brazilian Wax All You Need to Know for a New Look!
The Brazilian wax is now more popular than ever with women and this article is about the history, how to have one done and what to expect from the treatment
Having a Brazilian wax is not difficult and most women who have it are delighted with the results as are their partners!
So, how does Brazilian Wax differ from Bikini Wax?
Quite simply, with the Brazilian wax hair is removed from the front, back & everything in between.
Most of the time a small 'landing strip' is left at the front, but many women go for everything removed.
Before having a Brazilian bikini wax, consider trying a standard bikini wax which will remove the hair from your bikini line or the full bikini which will remove most of your pubic hair but will not go near the most sensitive areas.
Keep in mind a Brazilian bikini wax removes most or all of the pubic hair, so if you are unsure if you really want one opt for this method first
Brazilian Wax History
Brazilian bikini waxes have been very popular since the 90's. Brazilian waxing was introduced to New York in 1987 by a group of Brazilian-born sisters, who gave it its name.
These Brazilian women were not however the first that removed their pubic hair.
Women have been removing their pubic hair for thousands of years and the trend started in ancient Egypt!
Women in the Middle East have also used Brazilian waxing since ancient times and look usually was achieved just before their wedding for the purpose of displaying purity.
If you are having a Brazilian wax done then its best to get it done professionally and if you are unsure of having one done try a bikini wax first.
A professional Brazilian wax is relatively cheap, the process takes around 30 minutes and then you have your new look.
1. Because you only need about a quarter-inch of hair for the wax to grab onto, your waxer will start by trimming your pubic hair to the right length.
2. The best waxers are quick, which cuts down on discomfort to the patient.
3. The waxer will dip a waxing stick into a pot of hot wax & then spread it onto the area to be waxed.
The waxer will then apply a cloth strip over the warm wax, pressing firmly so the cloth, hair and wax stick together. When the wax has cooled down, the waxer will pull the strip off, in the opposite direction of your hair growth and remove the hair by the roots.
4. Waxing usually starts at the front and moves towards the back.
5. Once the waxing is over, the waxer will spread soothing lotion onto the area.
Thats it! You now have your Brazilian wax and your new look in around 30 minutes
Brazilian Waxing Pain
The procedure of the Brazilian wax (like any waxing) can be painful at first, but a frequent visit usually cuts down the pain factor as your body adjusts.
As for the embarrassment that some women feel, it is actually know different to a typical visit to your gynecologist's and remember, they have seen it all before its their job.
The downside of a Brazilian wax is that you cant do it just once!
While waxing lasts up to 3 or 4 weeks, the hair will eventually grow back and you will then need another treatment.
Other downsides to Brazilian bikini waxes are:
Hair has to be a certain length before it can waxed properly and you might experience red bumps or ingrown hairs after the treatment.
The Brazilian Bikini Wax is here to Stay
The above downsides are fairly minor and most women once they have tried the procedure continue with waxing.
The Brazilian Bikini wax is here to stay and is not as difficult, expensive or as hard to do as many women think. Keep in mind getting a Brazilian wax is not expensive and its a good idea to have it done professionally.
