8 Reasons You Actually Shouldn’t Wax Down There

Here’s some big personal news – I got my first Brazilian wax last week (Yes, I’m a little behind the times, but oh well)! I had dragged my feet on getting “that area” waxed because, well… who wants to spend an extra $50 a month on their vagina? Not this gal! I’ve been shaving my bikini area for the past ten years or so with no complaints, but after hearing my friends sing the praises of the Brazilian wax, I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. While getting my nails done, I stepped into the back room to get my hair removed as well.


I laughed the entire time I received the wax. THE ENTIRE TIME. I was like, “Hahaha please don’t hurt me HAHAHAHA.” It was a mess. The waxing itself didn’t hurt too badly, but I wasn’t a fan of the plucking of the individual hairs that didn’t get removed by the wax (ouch). I also didn’t like her showing me my vagina in a handheld mirror at the end and asking me how it looked. That was super awkward to say the least! “Wow – it’s beautiful, thanks!”


Overall, I’m glad that I did it, as I do feel less itchy down there. But I’m not sure if I’ll do it again. In the future, I would do a little more research instead of just trusting the nail salon around the corner. I’d like to find a waxer who is confident, makes me feel relaxed, and is quick!

You always hear about the reasons to get a Brazilian wax, but here are a few arguments against it that you should take into consideration. Here are 8 reasons you actually shouldn’t wax down there:

    Honestly European Wax Center is the best place to get waxed, they are much more sanitary than any nail salons and they specialize in waxing. They also offer packages that make it really affordable, especially for students. If you’ve never been there before you can get the bikini line for free or brazilian for $23.50. If you’re not into doing a Brazilian they also do bikini full, so they just do along the top and edges and trim the hair. I’m a fan of waxing, because it makes me feel clean and I’m comfortable growing it out.
