A Brazilian wax is the use of wax to remove pubic hair, and is a common practice among women. Mainly, all hair is removed from the pelvic area. Sometimes, a thin strip of hair remains on the pubis. The Brazilian wax is a popular procedure because it makes adult women look younger. Brazilian wax requires a professional to avoid the risk of getting infected.
Where did the Brazilian wax originate?
The origins of Brazilian wax are on the beaches of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where some females donned the thong bathing suit for the first time, sometime in the 1970s or 1980s. The actual date when this occurred is not known. These beauties were not comfortable in this bathing suit due to their visible pubic hair. Therefore, to make it wearable, a waxing method to remove the visible pubic hair was invented and arrived in the United States through the Brazilian J Sisters in 1986, when they opened a waxing salon in New York.
Why a Brazilian Wax?
The reasons for a Brazilian wax are varied and include personal hygiene, beauty and admirable personality. Most women want to feel sexy and attractive in their thong bikinis, but with visible pubic hair, it becomes difficult to attain this satisfactory feeling. A Brazilian wax enables women to wear their swim wear and lingerie without feeling embarrassed. Wearing the sexy thong bikini without visible pubic hair creates a feeling of confidence in a woman that brings out the feminity in her.
What is the Brazilian wax procedure?
The Brazilian wax procedure is rather painful, but the outcome is worth the pain. Depending on the length of the pubic hair, snipping with scissors is done to attain the desired length. Then the wax is applied and small strips of cloth are used to cover it. The wax shrink-wraps and hardens around the hair. Once hard enough, it is rapidly pulled off to remove hair from the roots.
How long does a Brazilian wax last?
How long a Brazilian wax lasts is different for different people; different people have different rates of hair growth. However, it is believed that the Brazilian wax will last for 2 to 3 weeks. After the first Brazilian wax, hair re-growth will occur sooner. But with consecutive treatments, re-growth will take a long time; with consecutive treatment, re-growth can delay for up to 2 months. Waxing alters hair growth changes, hence the reason why re-growth will change after consistent waxing. To allow proper maintenance of one’s Brazilian wax, it is recommended to have appointments between 4 to 5 weeks.
What are the effects of Brazilian wax?
A Brazilian wax results in different reactions to different people; some will have the usual redness and minor irritation while others may suffer from severe irritation. All in all, the fact is that Brazilian wax exfoliates the pubic region, leaving the hair follicles exposed. The subsequent 24 hours following a Brazilian wax are very sensitive and one should strictly follow prescribed guidelines to alleviate the effects.
The Brazilian wax has become a people’s favorite not only because it allows one to comfortably wear a bikini, it makes one feel great.
