Is getting a Brazilian wax safe. Is it also safe if you dobt leave any area around your vagina, and do you have to worry about ingrown hairs from waxin?

Is getting a Brazilian wax safe. Is it also safe if you dobt leave any area around your vagina, and do you have to worry about ingrown hairs from waxin?

Yes.: If by safe, you mean it shouldn't permanently damage your female parts. Theoretically, you shouldn't get ingrown hairs from waxing since you're taking the hairs out from the roots. However, waxing is not perfect and some hairs might break near the ends and grow back to form an ingrown hair. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I want a Brazilian wax but don’t know if my hair will grow back normal. Does anyone know?

I want a Brazilian wax but don’t know if my hair will grow back normal. Does anyone know?

Define "normal": It will grow back, but it will become more sparse and have a finer texture, especially if you wax on a regular basis. That's because waxing pulls the hairs out by their roots, which weakens the hair follicles, making them less capable of growing normal, strong hair shafts. That's a good result for most people who have such procedures, but if it's not what you want, don't have it done. ...Read more

What happens during a Brazilian wax?

What happens during a Brazilian wax?

Epilation: Pain! why would anyone do that? Why not shave the areas you wish to defoliate. It is much easier and painless, and cause none of the problems with filling the tiny holes from which hairs are pulled in waxing. Seriously, shaving hair does not cause it to grow thicker or faster. If it did bald man would shave their heads three times a day! ...Read more

I just got a Brazilian wax and they put SO much powder 'down there' I'm worried about getting cancer from the talc. How dangerous is this?

I just got a Brazilian wax and they put SO much powder 'down there' I'm worried about getting cancer from the talc. How dangerous is this?

I think it's safe: The idea that a small amount of asbestos in talc causes ovarian cancer has been around since I was a med student in the 1970's, and is popular with tort lawyers, but it doesn't make sense and seems only to be supported by studies that invite bias. These are the ones in which anything can cause anything. Stop worrying. ...Read more
