I belong to the category of women who shaves. Unfortunately.
It’s due to lack of time, patience and the strength of being in pain every 3rd week at a wax salon. Some girls use epilators, but that scares the sh#t out of me. I guess shaving has always been the easiest and fastest way out, however not the most efficient of course.
As we get older and shave more, we keep getting thicker and more messed up hairs. From the root it can sometimes grow more than 1 hair, and often you get silky legs for only a limited amount of hours before they turn themselves in to cactuses.
That’s the reason why I’ve decided to start waxing again.
Sugaring has been on the market for the past 15 years and it’s a different type of waxing solution. It is said to be a more comfortable way of hair removal because the wax adapts to your body temperature. The risk is lower of getting in grown hairs or hairs being cut off from the root, which is great!
Today was my appointment to do full legs & a Brazilian – and damn did I forget how much it hurts having hair ripped away from your private parts. It honestly felt like I was giving birth or similar, that’s how much I had to focus on my breathing and not to scream like a crazy bitch. 2 hours later it was over *halleluja moment* 😀 .
They say the first 2 times will hurt terribly when you wax, but 3rd time and onwards it will feel much better as your hair start to become softer and finer. But it will only happen if you stop shaving and go back every 3rd week to keep it up, which I’m actually serious about doing.
Although today was like going through hell, I’m up for this challenge.
Funny enough it learned me an important lesson, and that is how to deal with pain. It’s all in the mind in the end, and you can actually control your reactions to a certain extend by various techniques and I’m eager to discover them now with this new challenge
