I've always waxed by myself cause I started as a poor college student, but there's definitely a learning curve. In the beginning, I'd take an Advil about an hour beforehand to help with the pain, but I don't need to do that anymore. For beginners, I would recommend sugar wax like Parissa Body Sugar because in my experience, it's a little less painful, less likely to rip off skin, washes off with soap and water in case you mess up, etc. Because it isn't as "grippy" as normal wax, it can leave some stray hairs behind, but I find the easy clean-up to be super important for DIY. You can play around with how much you want to groom - the mons and labia are going to be more sensitive and painful to wax compared to the areas further away so sometimes I'd just trim those and wax the areas that would peek over the top and sides of a bikini.

I started off using Surgi Wax Brazilian Hard Wax since you don't need any cloth strips - just apply, wait for it to harden slightly and then rip off. I switched to Parissa Strip-Free Hot Wax at some point in college since I didn't have a microwave and only my wax warmer, and it was roughly the same. The issue with strip-free wax is if it's too hard, it's a BITCH to deal with and the only way to get it off is to either cut the hair or melt the wax (owww..) I've also tried the Parissa Warm Wax which uses cloth strips that you rip while the wax is still warm and pliable, and I think this was definitely the application result that yielded the smoothest results. The strip-free wax would only reliably grip hair longer than 0.25", but this one seemed to get it all. If you go to a professional, they'll probably use the warm wax with strips and you'll have really smooth results. (You also don't have to deal with the anxiety of pulling the hair off yourself if you go to someone. :D) These waxes are difficult to clean though. You basically have to wait until they harden so you can chip them off like candle wax or apply oil to loosen it.

I think that was probably more information than you needed, but hope it was helpful! Haha....

Tips for next time (if there is one):

  • Buzz the hair first, so it is between .5 to 2 inches.
  • Clean the area, and your hands!
  • Start from the outside, like a jigsaw puzzle.
  • Apply small patches of wax with the grain.
  • Pull against the grain.
  • Immediately apply pressure to the (now hairless) spot to ease any pain.
  • Use strip wax; it's by far the easiest to do on yourself.
  • Use a light toner, and optional cooling gel afterwards.

    The reason why he still has hairs (and probably hurt like a maniac), is because it wasn't done correctly and just broke off the hairs instead of ripping them out. Tell him to use gentle soaps for a while, and some coconut oil or scentless, light moisturizer to heal. Don't wear tight clothes, and don't touch it!! He's going to be super prone to zits/ingrown hairs for the next 12 hours now.

Two bits of help:
1: Get a Lady Gillette or a similarly long handled razor. You're going to want to get that kind of Leverage as there are a ton of curves down there and dancing around to get the right angel will result in a nasty nick.

2: Home waxing kits like this aren't half bad. My Fiancee uses them regularly.

u/Nvrfinddisacct · 7 pointsr/BlackPeopleTwitter

I mean I guess I could cut my own hair. I’m just bad at it. In my area, 35 is average for a cut. It comes with the wash because I think it’s easier on the stylist to deal with it wet.

Yeah it does cost money to wax. It lasts a little longer than shaving and it makes your hair finer and easier to deal with. I can’t wax my brows because of an old scar (they won’t do it over scar tissue for some reason). Some women need a full face wax. They grow hair on their face and they want to be accepted.

I just? I’m not sure I could wax my whole face on my own if I needed it and do it well. I didn’t go to school for that. I could end up with terrible skin irritation because I did it wrong or used the wrong materials. Obviously I don’t pay people to shave my legs and things because that’s daily maintenance but the other things you mentioned? I’m not sure I could do those on my own if I needed them.

Just for curiosity’s sake I did look up how much it might cost and what it would entail to wax on my own:

If you don’t want to do all the research to purchase a warmer, wax, sticks, and other supplies separately, you can get a kit. If you decided to get all the best products separately (because they’re all different brands and can’t be purchased at a discount in a kit) it’s a little more expensive. Anyway, the most highly rated kit (meaning most reviews so best review avg) is about 46 dollars.

I mean you’re right, it could be done at home but it still costs time and money. Once the amount of time to do it is factored in, is it more worth it to do it at home? I feel like I’d be in the bathroom all night and still fuck it up.

I feel like the key word in you argument is exorbitant. And yes it may seem exorbitant based on how you personally value the service but according to the market and comparing it to doing it at home, it’s not technically exorbitant. Women don’t choose these prices and the services are somewhat socially forced upon women. I understand your point. I just hope you can also understand that I do a lot of research on these topics not just looking at a price schedule at a salon. And I can’t speak to how your wife makes these purchases or why she feels you should make purchases a certain way but I can say that based on social norms and market value, there’s very few choices for women. You’re right we could reject those choices because they aren’t great but dude then we’d end up like hippie girls with hygiene that’s just not to the standard we like. It feels like that’s the only choice we have: pay market prices or feel not so hygienic.

u/cuddlezee · 6 pointsr/ABDL

If you wax it will be a little painful at first but so smooth and wonderful for weeks and weeks. Surgi-wax is your friend!

u/pprbckwrtr · 6 pointsr/TrollXChromosomes
That's the kit I bought (sorry for formatting, I am lazy). Its a lot about getting the consistency right and using enough pressure when you apply. On my pits the crease was uncomfortable, like pulling off a bandaid, but the pain doesn't last. The anticipation of it is worse.

I haven't done my bikini line yet, but I have gotten it done several times at salons and bought a hard wax kit so that I don't have to pay a stranger to look at my vagina anymore. Waxing is never like...pleasurable, and there are areas that hurt worse than others. I'd say bikini line hurts a little more than armpit. The worst is the top part of your public hair, for some reason that area is super sensitive. I plan on doing that myself next weekend or one week night if I am feeling crazy. I breakout horribly when I shave so waxing has been the only thing I can do to control the bikini area. And I live in Florida so I basically live in my swimsuit over the summer and not doing anything isn't an option for me. I'm hoping this kit saves me a shit ton of money lol But I wouldn't try out the wax with a kit without having it done at a salon. Then you can see how your skin reacts to wax, what areas are more painful for you, and if you prefer the wax over shaving. I have gone to European Wax Center and Waxing the City, two big chain names, and they have always done a good job (and your first time is discounted). It might be easy to have it done there and then just use your at home kit to touch up as the hair grows back.

u/Throbbing-Clitoris · 5 pointsr/AskWomen

I use the Gigi wax kit. It's pretty easy.

u/maythebee · 3 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

The only at-home wax I've EVER gotten to work (tried many) is Surgi. This one is amazing for bikini line, but I'm betting it'd be effective on legs too.

u/NeverTrustaMonkey · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I bought one of these last year and have LOVED it. With that type of wax you don't have to worry about the strips. Just smooth it on and rip it off.

It's much more reliable temperature wise than microwavable waxes too. :)

u/misscolinsxx · 3 pointsr/AskWomen

This is literally the best waxing kit I've ever use, its so easy and mess free and it doesn't pull on your skin like waxing strips do

u/abdl-newb · 3 pointsr/ABDL

try waxing! The hair will take longer to grow back and it will get easier the more you do it.

u/NobodyCallsMeThat · 3 pointsr/WTF

To be honest, the type of wax contributes to the pain level pretty significantly. I have gone to get it "professionally" done and ended up bruised and with some lingering hair that they missed...and out 45 dollars.
I got a home kit that was the same thing: it hurt like crazy, bruised me, and the wax wouldn't come all the way off, so I walked around with this weird sticky feeling around my junk.

The problem, I found out, is that most salons and home kits use soft wax, which is the gooey stuff you need cloth strips to rip off your skin. I had a friend recommend hard wax instead, and I was skeptical, but she told me it was way worth it.

I was totally shocked at how much better it was. It took a bit of practice to get it right, but totally worth it. The wax doesn't stick to your skin as much as the soft wax, it's way easier to rip off, and it doesn't hurt very much. I should qualify that, it DOES hurt, but it isn't bad at all. The trick is to do it in small patches at a time, and because you wait for the wax to harden on your skin, you can prep multiple places at once. Plus since you pull the wax itself off, you don't have to worry about running out of cloth strips.

The trickiest part is figuring out how to reach certain places, but once you get a little flexible it's great. Smooth skin, no red bumps like with shaving, and the hair grows back "thinner" as time goes on. It might be cheaper than shaving too, especially if you use disposable razors, but I'm not sure.

The downside is that it takes way more time than shaving, and a lot more patience and prep work (heating up the wax, prepping skin, etc).

u/RaisingLizzy · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Yes, I wax my chest and stomach bc I have a happy trail 😩. Waxing hurts but it last 8 weeks for me and now the hair grows back really thin and some spots don't grow back at all.

I went to a salon initially but now I use the Sally Hansen All Over Body Wax Kit . It's super easy to use and you can use that if you're nervous about going to a salon.

u/addlepated · 2 pointsr/CasualConversation

I have a kit a lot like this one and have had it for years, and have never run out of wax. It takes a while to get the hang of it, and you're probably gonna wax off more than you intended at first, so make sure you've got a good brow pencil handy! But once you've got it down, you'll wonder why you ever paid anyone to do it.

u/mrfizbin · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Here is the kit I bought. Hard wax works well for me. I've had it for about 3 or 4 years now and need to seriously consider replacing the warmer. It works but the temp control is kind of messed up now.

u/weakandsickandugly · 2 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

Hello lovely,

Please don't feel depressed. Removing hair is not a societal necessity. I hope that taking these steps to remove something that bothers you makes you feel beautiful and strong- not subverted. Have you tried hard wax? As another poster mentioned, surgiwax is also great. I'd recommend disinfecting the area with alcohol, using a clean wand for the wax and using some 2.5% BP after to keep the area free from germs that cause break outs. Exfoliating is an important step, too. I've struggled with bacne since puberty and its so devastating that I used to cover myself up. A gentle cleanser and salux cloth have entirely eliminated that problem for me. Chin up, beautiful. <3

This is a great starter hard wax setup here:

u/drawsincolor · 2 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

I use this kit from Sally Hansen - no strips, you just apply the wax, give it a few seconds to set, and remove.

u/Captain_Emo · 2 pointsr/popping

I think it is a comedone extractor, but I swore that was the name of another tool. All I know is mine shows up tomorrow! Thank you Amazon!

u/nasnan · 2 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

I've used the Nair strips, as well as the Sally Hansen strips for my upper lip. I would usually end up just plucking the hair out with tweezers because I couldn't get all of it with one of two of the strips :/

I started using Sally Hansen microwavable wax, because I wanted something cheap to try in case I didn't like it, or it didn't work. It's awesome. There aren't any strips, the wax just hardens and you peel it off with your fingers. It picks up a lot more hair than the strips ever did :)

u/wolfn404 · 2 pointsr/MasculineMaleChastity

Waxing isn’t a big deal. I encourage you to find a local waxing salon the first 2-3 times. So you have an idea of how the process goes. Once you have an idea a basic kit is cheap .

A can of wax is about 15$. Takes about an hour once you get the hang of it and lasts about 3 weeks. Way smoother, less irritation and ingrowns.

Just remember you want HARD stripless for the below the belt areas. And powder everything before hand.

u/bcaaaww · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I started with my brows. It hurts... but it's a good hurt! (It only really hurts for about 2-5 seconds. Then it's just a little achey after.) I got some of the ready to use waxing strips for my brows, tried one on my leg and it wasn't bad at all! I'm going to order this because hot wax is the best ever. Also does a much better job than the little strips like these.

u/VirtueBot · 2 pointsr/MtF

> I'm generally too sad to put any effort into anything like that lol

Yea that part is pretty hard esp if you're feeling discouraged. For me my thought of the body I want is the source of motivation. Also I try to always make sure there's time to workout because I know it will help me get towards something I really want. Once I got over the initial hump I realise it's not so bad and even see a little progress and it just snowballs from there. At this point I'm looking forward to working out because I know it takes me one step closer. Focusing on small wins has really kept me motivated and focused.

The hair thing is pretty tough. I'm not sure what the affordable range is, but you can get a wax warmer on Amazon for like $25 and wax for like $25 for 2 pounds but then the wax is a reoccurring cost so yea it can get expensive. That's the cheapest option I've found though. I'll edit with the links just in case. There are prob better options but I'm happy with the purchase so far.

edit: (not the exact one i have but similar) (note: imo this wax is a little on the "weak" side but gets the job done for me)

u/Peonys · 2 pointsr/AskWomen

I use Gigi's Brazilian hard wax. You can order the kit on Amazon for about $40. It comes with the Brazilian wax, the wax warmer, a nice amount of wooden sticks, and pre-epilation oil which really helps with the waxing process. It's sooo worth it. I've recommended the kit to a couple of girlfriends and they are very pleased with it. It is difficult at first, but I totally suggest reading tips from the Amazon reviews so you become familiar with it. Here is the link:

u/TinyOne9 · 2 pointsr/beauty

I'm Italian with Russian mixed in so in the winter I have the same problem as my hair is dark but my skin is paler. I invested in my own waxing kit and I buy wax specified for sensitive skin. Try asking a salon or ordering yourself the wax that you use on bikini areas. Its a LOT more soothing. I use more of a honey based wax myself, which seems to work alright
This is the wax kit I have And you can choose other waxes. Most Sally's Beauty Supply stores have all the compatible waxes and you can easily find muslin strip and stick refills. This has saved me so much money since I, like you, am a hairy hairy lady. Good luck!

u/stirfriedsmurf · 2 pointsr/malegrooming

What about home waxing kits? Something like this should work, although I haven't tried that particular product. If you're afraid to do something wrong, you could go to one of these outrageously expensive places once to see how they do it.

u/morgan590 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon
  1. My favorite movie is The Duchess! Although I haven't even attempted watching it since mu son was born. I know I would cry my eyes out. Entering for myself, although I'll probably share with my mom because we do that.

  2. I love shiny things.

  3. Bubble Guppies!
u/Kimandmakeup · 1 pointr/MakeupAddiction

I wax everything with this warmer, will never go back to shaving my bikini area.

u/PinkShimmer · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

You should buy this

  1. you have it marked high priority

  2. Everyone likes to be all smooth and silky especially without the hassle of shaving or tweezing.

u/loganberriez · 1 pointr/washingtondc

I started with this one because I didn't want to invest the $40-$50 bucks in a warmer kit if I was terrible at it and it hurt way worse. After doing it a few times, I'm def buying a warmer pot because you do have to microwave those a few times in the process since it starts to harden. Luckily its only $15 so if you hate it, you haven't lost much. I'm sure you could even find 1 box at a store for like $7 or $8. I'm just spoiled by amazons fast delivery. :)

u/dizzyvonblue · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

On my NSFW list but its probably safe for work. Or these nipple rings I need my nipples repierced.

The last thing I licked was my fiancé toe, like 4 minutes ago.

u/vllewella · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

You should get yourself this waxing kit. Pamper yourself a little and your SO will also benefit and you will save money in the long run on waxing appointments :D

u/rodgetheelder · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

My OH has a thick dark mono brow which i wax for him using microwave hot wax. This is the stuff I use on him. I wax his eyebrow once a month(ish) and it takes seconds (not counting the time it takes to heat the wax. The small tub has lasted over a year. If you use an orange stick (the kind you use for manicures) you can apply it more neatly and you don't have to use any strips. I also use it to neaten up my eyebrows occasionally and i don't have a problem using it on myself. My husband finds it hurts/is annoying much less than plucking (or having me pluck) and he is a complete baby about pain.

u/Julexa637 · 1 pointr/AskReddit

I received a at-home wax kit (Gigi) with all the accessories,
it cost about $45, even though I got it as a gift. I have saved so much money but not paying $15-25 for waxing my eyebrows, upperlip, etc.

u/Pootzen · 1 pointr/BurningMan

Surgi-Wax is a great at home treatment kit, I use it all the time.

u/ball_of_hands · 1 pointr/wicked_edge

I use this Sally Hansen waxing kit, mainly because I can find it at most grocery stores. It has low reviews on Amazon, but it's worked perfectly for me when it comes to chest waxing.

Just a warning. It does have a mild feminine a scent to it. I personally don't mind it.

Also, if you do purchase a product like this. I recommend heating the jar of wax in a sink of warm water, instead of using the microwave.

u/Pantyguy73 · 1 pointr/sex

The reality of shaving is it's going to itch like crazy for a few days as the hair starts to grow back. It's not so bad once you get used to it, but it's really bad at first and if you only do it occasionally. Also, you will only have that nice trimmed look for a couple days - same concept as the 5'0 clock shadow.

About 2 years ago I started man's aping with sugar wax. You do it at home at your own pace. It does hurt a bit for the first few seconds, but it's not nearly as bad as you might think. Plus the results last a few weeks.

u/boludisima · 1 pointr/TwoXChromosomes

I've been using a GiGi Mini Pro Waxing Kit for years. It is the same one that they used at the salon that I used to go to. Never done a brazilian with it, but my experience with it in general has been great. Only thing is, the Creme wax that it comes with the kit isn't great - their honey wax is better. But the Creme wax still gets the job done, it's just a little harder to work with. It's pricier than wax strips but has much better results, and one tub of wax will last you for months or years.

u/Ashlee863 · 1 pointr/crossdressing

Sally Hansen Eyebrow, Face & Lip Wax

Its the stripless kind that I used which seems to work better.

u/cablecar · 1 pointr/TwoXChromosomes

I'm not sure if you mentioned that you've had them done professionally in the past, but do go at least once or twice to a reputable waxer so you'll have an idea of what to expect, regarding pain. Try to wax or get waxed a week or so right after you finish your period (it tends to be most painful before or right after your monthly.) this is the kit I purchased when I wanted to start out trying my own... some takeaways:

  • it WILL take a while to do yourself. 2 hours at least. Be ready. Have some music, or netflix in the background, as others have said.

  • a small mirror is very useful to have!

  • placing newspaper or paper towels on/around your work space is a good idea to avoid wax getting everywhere

  • it will be difficult to wax your back door yourself. I've tried and injured myself, so I tend to leave that area alone when i self-wax. I'm OK with that..

  • wax small portions at a time! it's less painful to rip off, and if you eff up and let the wax harden too much, or put too little wax, or too much, it's easier to deal with a small strip than painstakingly yanking off one ginormous chunk

    Best of luck!!!
u/erkala21 · 1 pointr/AskWomen

I like Veet for facial hair removal. It doesn't burn or leave my skin red. It doesn't smell good, but it isn't as bad as some. Leaves my skin very smooth and I use it every 10 days or so.

u/SillySillyGirl · 1 pointr/asktransgender

You can get a waxing kit on Amazon. Works great!

u/viiixxvii · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

There's regrowth, I just get lazy lol. Hair grows in phases so you might notice some regrowth less than a month in, but it's also a greatly reduced amount when it starts growing in. It's easiest to wax at home when there's less hair, and since I've been waxing so long, there are certain areas that barely come in even after 3 months.

Parissa Natural Hair Removal System Strip Free Hot Wax Face, Brow & Bikini Short Course Hair 4 oz

That's my favorite at home wax, but it might be easier to start out with strip waxes.

Good luck!

u/daclamp · 1 pointr/TwoXChromosomes

Sally Beauty Supply. You can order from their site but they do have stores in Canada. I have a lot of stuff in my waxing kit. It's a collection so I have no idea how much I've spent. For a starter kit, this is a good deal

Wow that looks awesome. What fireplace is that? The one wall mounted one I’ve seen that I like is this one -

But your fireplace looks lovely and it’s nicer in the Black I think as it matches the tv. The one I linked above looks really nice too and has a bunch of cool features I’m just not sure about the white frame on it.

Edit: are the led strips a separate thing you added or already on the fireplace? I have some led lights that I had in my old tv unit at the old house which I’ve kept and hope to use them when I’ve figured out how I want the TV set up to be, guess they could go behind the fireplace if it doesn’t already come with some.
