question- first time bikini wax watch

    I decided to start waxing my bikini line- including the area either side between my legs- just wondering..

    1. is it best to leave it after waxing the same strip a few times- even if its not completely hair-free?
    2. is it usual not to be able to wax those areas completely clean the first time (in your experience)
    3. does anyone have a problem with ingrown hairs when they wax?/ if so how to avoid it?

    thanks

    It ******* hurts. Get it done properly OP! You can;t wax the same bit thats been waxed already twice. Pretty much all home kits are **** anyway in my experience.

    Lol as I said before the only decent home waxing kit I've found is Nads from Boots. But it's at least 15 quid, however you get a fair few goes for your money.

    I think I have a high pain threshold cos I'm okish with the pain.

    Good luck

    Go to a salon or just shave.. waxing at home is nothing but a recipe for disaster. Either way use Tend Skin lotion (you can get it off ebay or hqhair.com) - amazing at preventing ingrown hairs, and aqueous cream to soothe your skin!

    they were a bit in effectual- perhaps that's the problem- but it did make a noticeable difference

    thanks for the advice guys

    Please tell me you didn't use wax strips! Like the premade veet ones, they're such a con.

    Trust me get hot wax/nads. Takes more practice but it actually does work.

    Lazer! And only get rid of the side lines. Men love a good bush.

    what!! waxing at home is fine, look online at 'sugar wax', this is as it sounds, based on a sugar solution therefore the residue just washes off easily as the sugar dissolves. any other wax you need to buy wax remover, as well as the fabric strips and spatulas. it may say you need a wax warmer but i microwave mine fine!
    get it done first in a salon if i were you then maybe try your own if you think you can handle it! i dont have a problem doing it myself, you get used to it. to stop ingrowing hairs use an exfoliating gel before and after
