Understanding The Various Types
BENEFITS OF WAX VS. SHAVING
Less irritation: If you prep well, waxing may be less likely than shaving to cause rashes and bumps.
Long lasting: Wax pulls hair out from the root, so you’ll stay smooth for longer than you would with a razor. Eventually, the hair grows back — but a Brazilian wax can keep you hair-free for up to six weeks.
Less hair over the long term: If you wax repeatedly, the hair often starts to grow back softer and thinner. Over time, waxing will be easier and less painful, and you may be able to go longer between sessions.
Brazilian wax not only removes your unwanted hair, but this process removes the dead skin cells at the same time that reside on your skin.
This amazing hair removal procedure also actively exfoliates your skin and removes all the dead skin cells from your pubic parts precisely to make this region looks softer and smoother than before.
NO CUTS OR NICKS
With a Brazilian wax, there are no razors, so there are no cuts or nicks. This makes it less irritating for your skin. The irritation you get after waxing is a result of the pain from yanking hair off and it goes away naturally.
Having a waxed session isn’t always a luxury; sometimes, it is necessary. Brazilian waxes are healthy and rarely have any side effects if done correctly. Pubic hair traps bacteria that can lead to infections and a less-than-desirable odor. For some women- after urination, after intercourse, even going to the restroom in public... there still is a trapped and lasting odor that leaves us feeling self-conscious until our next shower.
A good solution would be plant-based products and removing the hair on the outer labia, you can drastically reduce your risk of any unwanted odor.
POST BRAZILIAN WAX CARE
SEX AFTER BRAZILIAN WAXING
Please wait 24 hours so your skin has time to heal and hair follicles can close. Doing so will prevent any further skin irritation.
Generally it can last from a few minutes to a few days, depending on your skin sensitivity.
Some bumps are a result of post wax irritation and will go away on their own within a few hours. To help calm and correct your skin, add a vajacial to your Brazilian wax or browse our vaginal care products to help soothe and treat any ingrown hairs, bumps or breakouts.
INGROWNS, BLACKHEADS & WHITE HEADS
An ingrown hair is a strand of hair that grows into, rather than out of, the skin. It usually happens after the person shaves, waxes, or tweezes the hair.
An area with ingrown hairs may have little reddish bumps, which may itch. It might be possible to see the hair trapped within the skin.
Over time, an ingrown hair may develop into a cyst — a sac of fluid beneath the skin.

1. Will my hair grow back thinner?
As the hair is pulled from the roots, this reduces hair growth. It varies from person to person, but even though your hair will grow back less, it may not necessarily be thinner. You’ll just have less of it.
2. Does waxing hurt as much as people say?
Firstly, it depends on where you’re getting a wax done. If you’re getting an intimate wax done, then you will experience some pain undoubtedly, but even with this, some parts are less sensitive than others. Plus, the first time is the worst, so if you get it done every 3-6 weeks when the hair is waxable again, the pain lessens. All in all, some areas of the body are more sensitive than others, and most importantly pain is subjective
3. What is the difference between hot and strip wax?
Hot wax is for dealing with sensitive skin and thicker hair and will most likely be used for an intimate wax, whilst strip wax is for less sensitive skin and thinner hair and will most likely be used for areas such as the legs, arms and face.
4. What’s the best way to get rid of post-waxing red skin?
The simple, yet most effective way of calming down red skin is by moisturizing. Waxing removes the top layer of the epidermis revealing new, softer ones but simultaneously it strips away the skin’s natural oil and moisture. To restore the moisture and rejuvenate the skin, it is worth checking out our aloe Vera gel to complement your waxing experience.
5. How does the hair grow back?
If you become a regular waxer you’ll notice that your hair will become sparser, making it easier to wax…and less painful!
6. How often should I get a wax done?
It depends on how fast your hair is growing but on average we would recommend getting waxed every 4 weeks. This is usually the right amount of time to have the hair at the right length, and will also allow the skin to be less sensitive to treatments. We recommend avoiding treatment around that time of the month: your skin will be more sensitive 5 days before and after.
7. How long should the hair be to get a wax done?
The ideal length for waxing is about 1/4 inch to 1/2 an inch (0.5 cm to 1.5 cm). If your hair is not long enough, our therapist will let you know. If you decide to go ahead with the treatment, that’s not a problem at all. It is simply likely that we are not going to be able to get all the hair, as they’ll be too short to stick to the wax. Likewise, if the hair is too long we can trim it for you as a wax will be more painful with longer hairs.
8. Can I use a sunbed or tan outside once my wax is done?
Beware of the sun, as we advise that during the 24-hour window after a wax done to not go out into the sun. This is because the skin is more exposed and less protected. As for sunbeds, it’s usually advised that these are avoided for at least one week before and after your waxing appointment. The skin tends to contain heat from the UV light which can cause the skin to peel or lift. In turn, this can irritate the skin during or after the wax.
9. How can I prevent being embarrassed during an intimate wax?
Meeting us actually covers 80% of this! It’s understandable that there will be a little embarrassment, especially for a first-timer as you may feel slightly uncomfortable being so exposed. Rest assured, our waxer has seen it all and, like a doctor or nurse, it’s their job. Just know that it’s of the norm and our wax specialist won’t even bat an eyelid.
10. Is there a way to make intimate waxing less painful?
Taking painkillers can actually make the treatment less painful. Taking ibuprofen, in particular, can aid in reducing any swelling that comes about after the wax. Also, make sure to not go hungover. Alcohol is dehydrating and will tighten the pores making the waxing more painful in turn. We have a few more tips and tricks here for you so that you can have a less painful wax!
11. Can I get an intimate wax whilst on my period?
We usually suggest not getting a wax when it’s your time of the month, just because the skin is more sensitive around that time. So we advise against getting a wax 5 days before and during your period however you absolutely can. As long as you are using a tampon we can.
12. Can I do the deed on the same day that I get waxed?
We know you want to show put that wax to good use straight away, but we usually advise at least 24 hours before bodily contact, as the friction can aggravate the skin.
13. Can I shave between treatments?
Resist the urge to pick up the razor! We strongly advise not shaving after having a wax done. Shaving promotes ingrown hairs and skin abrasions hence it counteracts all of the wonders that the wax does for your skin. Plus, shaving makes your skin more sensitive, which will only make your next wax more painful not to mention shaving created tiny cuts all over whether you can see them or not.
14. Can I get an intimate wax if I am pregnant?
Yes most certainly, just let your Salonette know so that she is aware.
