Have you ever waxed?

Have you ever waxed your legs or bakini area? I am thinking of doing it this year to avoid the shaving rash, but am worried it will be too painful...any thoughts?

  • I do brazilian wax but I recommend going to a salon to do it--way too painful to do to yourself. pop a couple of motrin or advil or something ahead & it will take a way alittle of the pain

  • I went and got my whole ya whoo waxed and it hurt like heck! I seriously will never do it again. The sides weren't too bad but everywhere else yes. I would rather shave.

  • omg it hurt crazy the first 4 times (legs) it does get easier. get 4 girls together and a make an afternoon of it, so much easier with friends. it is better, last longer, you should try it for 6 months. oh and trim bikini area first, no really it's a must do. good luck with that
