Post Brazilian Waxing.?????

I started getting this painful proceudre at the start of summer, but besides the pain i find this procedure not that great since you have to wait 3-4weeks to get it done again, which means many of summer weekends not being able to be in a bathing suit.

What other alternatives are there (instead of the dreadful tedious shaving)? & if anyone else gets waxes regulary do you also have to wait that long to get it done?

This is a good question, although I don't wax, I was planning on starting before our cruise.

If you ask in the 'Beauty & Cosmetics' section of the healthboards, someone there will definitely have the answer for you!!

I think it depends on the wax that the salon uses. I have been to places where you didn't have to wait as long, but they used some new kind of wax. Maybe call around to different salons and find out what they do.

I get brazilian bikini waxes and yes, it's best if you wait 3-4 weeks so that all the hair is grown in to do it again but if I'm going to the beach and it's only been 2-3 weeks I'll either just tweeze the few hairs actually outside of the bathing suit line or if I think it's possbile I'll do it again and then just tweeze the hairs two short to come out in the wax.

In addition, I'd like to add that's it's best after your mensus, as that is when your hair grows the fastest.

It's also a lot less painful after your period. You're so much more sensitive during or right before. I was waxed just before and I bruised and couldn't walk or sit without pain for a week.
