Do’s & Don’ts of Getting A Brazilian

Do’s & Don’ts of Getting A Brazilian

Got questions about getting a Brazilian? Great! We’ve got answers. Here’s our list of what to do before and after your Brazilian wax.

Before Your Brazilian:
DO let the hair grow ¼ to ½ an inch—no longer! This is the ideal length for less pain and a quicker wax session.

DO help prevent ingrown hairs by gently exfoliating the area several days before your appointment.

DO be very clean. Make sure you shower the day of your wax to help prevent infection. You’ll feel more comfortable and so will your wax technician.

DO take an anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen a half-hour beforehand, if you’re very sensitive.

DON’T schedule your appointment for about a week before or during your period, you’ll be much more sensitive, causing more pain.

DON’T apply any creams or lotions before your wax. You’ll get better results if your skin is dry.

After your Brazilian:
DO soothe the area with cool compresses once you get home.

DO wash the area twice daily if you are prone to developing red bumps or ingrown hairs. Apply an over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream for a few days after your wax.

If you develop bumps, DON’T ever pick or squeeze them! This could lead to scarring. DO apply hydrocortisone and benzoyl peroxide gel, pads or wash (all available in your pharmacy without a prescription).

DON’T wear tight underwear or clothing in synthetic materials to prevent irritation. It’s best to stick to natural fabrics that breathe.
