PRO: You’re Hairless For Longer Periods Of Time
You know how, after you shave, tiny little hairs start growing in and you’re prickly by the next day? It’s not like that with waxing. It takes longer for the hair to grow back. Of course, it depends on how much body hair you have.
CON: You Have To Let Hair Grow Out
One big negative of waxing (especially if you hate body hair)? You have to let the hair grow out a little bit so that there’s something for the wax to hold onto. That means that you’ll have to deal with a little bit of hair (at least 1/4 inch of hair is needed for waxing) for at least five days before a wax.
PRO: It Won’t Grow As Thick After A While
When you’ve been waxing for a while, you’ll notice that your hair starts growing in differently. It won’t grow in as thick as it once did, and after a long time, patches of hair might not stop growing in completely. That means that even though you have to deal with a little hair for a few days, it won’t be as thick or dark as if you were in between shaves.
CON: It Costs More Money
No one can argue that waxing is as inexpensive as shaving. When it comes to shaving, you have to buy razors (usually less than $15) every once in a while, and shaving cream (which is also really cheap). Or you don’t even have to buy shaving cream because you can use conditioner or coconut oil. But waxing costs money.
PRO: It’s Not Too Much Effort For You
Do you hate, hate, hate shaving, which is one of the major reasons why some love getting waxed. Shaving is just a boring little task for some that maybe one is too lazy/busy to do themselves. Waxing allows one to lay back and let someone else take care of it. Say goodbye to shaving every other day! It’s nice!
CON: Waxing Can Cause Ingrown Hairs
Sure, waxing means saying goodbye to stubble… but it also means saying hello to ingrown hairs. If you’re not careful, waxing can cause ingrown hairs down there that can be painful and annoying to deal with. Sure, shaving can cause this also, but it’s a little more frustrating with waxing since you’re paying more for it. It is especially likely to happen if you have sensitive skin or your waxer isn’t doing a great job. At Jewel we use an ingrown hair serum to use to prevent them, but still it can happen…a tip…exfoilate a few days after getting waxed and the day before you come in to get waxed, this can help lower the risk of getting an ingrown.
PRO: It Gets Rid Of Black Stubble
You know that black stubble that gets left behind on your skin after you shave if you don’t have light blonde hair? It’s not a big deal at all and something that everybody deals with, but some people get really annoyed by this stubble. I know it bothers some people a lot. I know that waxing almost eliminates that stubble, or at least makes it a lot less noticeable.
CON: You’re Removing A Layer Of Protection Against Infection
Waxing down there means removing all traces of pubic hair. Pubic hair actually works to protect our down there ares from infections and bacteria. If there is absolutely no hair down there, there is basically no protection. This means that not only are you more likely to contract an STD or STI, it also means you can get other bacterial infections. And if you’re going to a waxer who isn’t doing a great job, waxing can even remove tiny bits of a layer of skin, which makes you even more susceptible to infection.
PRO: Waxing Can Get Deeper Than A Razor Can
A Brazilian wax involves waxing the hair off the outside of your labia and the inside, as well as your butt. It’s pretty difficult to shave the inside areas of yourself, and it’s almost impossible for you to shave your “butt” area. However, we can wax in all the areas you can’t get to with a razor.
CON: You Can Get Wax Burns or Scarring
But hold on: waxing isn’t painless either. Although it’s not likely to happen if you’re going to a good waxer, it’s still possible to get burns from very hot wax. You can also develop scars down there from the burns. Using a lower temperature wax pretty much takes this precaution away…
PRO: You Don’t Have To Deal With Razor Cuts or Burns
A nice thing about waxing is that you don’t have to worry about cutting yourself with a razor. Also you don’t need to deal with annoying and painful razor burn. Ahhh.
