10 Things You'd Like to Ask About Bikini Waxing But Have Been Too Shy To Ask

Updated: Dec 27, 2023

1. Is it possible to get ingrown hairs from being waxed for the first time?


People with curly pubic hair and sensitive or reactive skin, such as redheads or African-Americans, are most prone to ingrown hair. Those with olive skin tend to have softer hair and skin that is not as reactive. Asians, on the other hand, typically have more reactive skin, although they seem to obtain the longest-lasting results.


2. Does waxing beat shaving in terms of speed of regrowth?


It's my lifelong love of waxing instead of shaving, not just because of my profession. I prefer waxing instead of shaving because shaving cuts the hair off at the skin's surface, which then grows back in one to three days. Because razors are so sharp, they irritate the skin, resulting in razor bumps on the bikini line. Conversely, waxing removes the hair from the follicle, resulting in less hair returning after the first time. After observing, I've seen an average of 30% to 40% less hair after the first time.


3. What is chocolate soft wax?


Chocolate soft wax is one of the types of waxes that we use during waxing. Chocolate soft wax has many benefits. The chocolate has anti-inflammatory properties on the ski. It’s super hydrating, it’s very gentle and less painful, and smells fabulous. During the waxing process, we cleanse and then hydrate the skin with natural oil to protect the skin from being pulled during the hair removal process. When completed, we saturate the waxed areas with Bacitracin (anti-bacterial ointment).


4. How frequently should I wax?


Waxing allows the hair to grow back fully, resulting in smoother, longer-lasting hair removal. Waxing every four to six weeks is best to get the best results. If you wax too frequently, you may experience increased irritation and bumps, particularly in the pubic area.


5. What exactly do Boyzilian and Manzilian mean?


They want the entire front pubic region, including the cheeks and crack, or just a portion of it—whatever look they prefer.


6. Is it possible to get a back or chest wax without a breakout?


Inflammation or small white bumps may occur after waxing these areas. Fortunately, some post-wax creams and ointments can prevent or assist with rapid skin recovery.


7. How long can I have sex after a wax?


It's okay to have sex, but you may want to wait 24 hours if the area is sensitive. Those extra-sensitive after a wax often benefit from post-wax ointments to reduce inflammation and soothe the skin.


8. After a wax, is it normal to see scabbing along the bikini line? Should I be concerned?


If the skin is burned after waxing, it could mean that the wax was too hot or not applied correctly (I have found over the years that there is almost no waxing training in esthetics programs, much less Chocolate soft wax is one of the types of waxes that we use during waxing. programs). It is not always the waxer's fault. Periodic women are often more prone to skin irritation or sensitive skin. Sun damage and sweat, as well as medications, can contribute to your skin's sensitivity.


If this occurs, you may apply a post-wax ointment. If you don't have one, try a Neosporin-type healing ointment. Multiple applications daily should be applied directly on the burned or raised skin. Slather on a generous amount and cover with a bandage at night, and do not use lotions or wash in that area until it heals. Do not pick at the skin or wash it with a mild cleanser or wash.


9. Does hair in your bikini truly protect that area?


In my opinion, it is crucial to remove all pubic hair, particularly for women. I believe that hair in that area promotes bacteria rather than preventing it. Perhaps this was true decades ago before we regularly showered and performed various grooming tasks (plus, it provided extra warmth). It should be an essential part of our grooming routine.


10. Do you suggest over-the-counter numbing creams or other pain relievers before wax?


There are a couple of techniques to make waxing less painful. It is usually best to apply the cream through the hair and onto the skin for optimum results.
