Right, so I haven’t shaved the legs for 3 weeks. Going for my very first waxing session in a week. Doing the full leg thing <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" /> So, what I would like to know is, do I trim the hair down to 1/6 of an inch before I go? Hear the hairs can break off if they’re too long? Dunno if this applies to male hair too? It’ll be about 1 cm in length if I don’t trim. There are a couple of really short hairs, so I guess those will have to be plucked??? Also do I shower and exfoliate with a body scrub an hour before my appointment? I am a male with rather dark, thickish hair. Please tell me your thoughts <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />
Don’t bother to trim the hairs. Pluck the short hairs AFTER the waxing. There is no need to exfoliate before waxing because waxing is in a way like an exfoliant since the waxing will also remove the dead skin cells along with the hair.
SO yeah…what can I say, an hour later and I’m feeling great about my choice to get my legs waxed. Gonna be uber cool not having to shave em every second day! Was a lil nervous before going in, cos I thought it was gonna be SORE and also cos I’m a guy Anyways, the skinny of it is, that the pain is seriously overrated! Only sore spots are behind the knees and the inside of the thighs. If you’re thinking about doing this, GO FOR IT!
Kay, tis the day after and my skin seems to have calmed down somewhat. Still a lil blotchy and a few white heads have appeared on both legs and still quite a few blood spots but all in all I’m happy so far. Perhaps I’m just positive Didn’t go anywhere near water yesterday, even tho I was dying to take a shower. Had a semi warm shower this morning, not too hot. Used protex anti bacterial soap containing triclosan and lathered up with Thursday Plantation Tea Tree hand and body lotion. Gonna do the same this evening before bed. Will post again tomorrow <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
