When I first started waxing I use to take pain killers half an hour or so before and it kind of helped a bit. Also if you pull the skin tight it helps and also makes it easier. After a few months of doing it though it doesn't tend to hurt as much. I'm not sure if it's because the hair gets weaker or if it's just because you get use to it. I get it done professionally now and although it's more expensive, it's not as bad when someone else does it because you don't know when it's going to pull. Just persevere and it will get better!
I used to wax professionally.
I suggest a warm flannel applies first, make sure the area is dry before applying wax.
Hold the skin either side of the wax strip so it's tight. This will stop Brusing, if u just pull the strip off whitout stretching the skin it will hurt like hell!
Have fun lol x
Definitely hurts less when done by a professional. I've been waxed properly a few times and it stung but wasn't too bad. Then my bf bought me a top of the range epilator for Christmas
That wasn't as bad as I thought it would be (even did my own brazilian)... but then I let it grow back a bit too much and was too scared to get the epilator on it. SO I bought a home waxing kit to redo my brazilian - yowch! It hurt me for about 2 days!
Definitely going to maintain it with the epilator again now. (the more you do it the less it hurts)
I tried it on Mike first and he said it hurt a little bit, guess he's got stronger skin. But oh aye, it rips it out from the roots! I just want a way of maintaining the pubic area without shaving, when I do self portraits, shaving rash is a nightmare to shop out.
