Brazilian waxes don’t have to be that painful. It’s important to take precautions since our skin in that area is far more sensitive. But let’s be clear: getting waxes will never feel good. It’s one of those beauty chores that are worth it.

What to Do Before Your Wax

But there’s no need to trim it if you think your hair is too long—your wax specialist will trim it if needed. A lot of times when people trim they end up going too short.
Moisturize and exfoliate beforehand. Dry hair and dry skin make it easier for your hair to break when removed. To get the smoothest and long-lasting results, the skin and hair should be healthy and moisture-rich. The best way to prepare is to not shave and to exfoliate and moisturize routinely.
