It is not uncommon to have tons of questions for us on how to prepare for a 1st Time Brazilian.
We have all been there at some point. Bet you’re probably wondering…How long does my hair have to be? Should I shave before my appointment? Is it going to hurt? Ugh too many questions.
Let’s start with something easy. What is Sugar? It’s an ancient Egyptian method of hair removal using 100% natural paste mixture of sugar, lemon and water. This method is done freehand and is completely safe and hygienic for all skin types as the sugar paste is never re-used. Your technician will apply the sugar paste by hand against your hair growth so that when the hair is removed in a flicking motion it’s pulled out by the follicle in the direction of the hair growth. This drastically reduces the occurrence of hair breakage, painful ingrowns and also allows us to removal smaller, harder to grab hairs.
For the best results while having a 1st Time Brazilian we require your hair to be a minimum of quarter of an inch long which would be the same as a length of a grain of rice or longer as the sugar paste needs to be able to wrap around the hair follicles in order for the hair to be removed. Shaving hair right before a service is not recommended as length of hair will not be at the minimum required length.
First time having this service done and worried about the pain? Everyones’ pain tolerance is different, some find they do not feel a thing (So Jealous!) while others feel… lets just say, more! Do not fear there are different methods to help. Some women try taking Advil’s 30 – 40 minutes prior to their service as this can ease the pain. For those who think that will just not help we have two amazing numbing cream. That’s right numbing cream! Our Bare Ease and Numb Nuts Analgesic creams are great for blocking pain for practically ouchless hair removal. This product is used to assist with temporary relief of pain which gets applied to the area 30 – 45 minutes prior to service for a less painful experience.
The best news is, once the first time is done it‘s instantly easier to handle! We suggest coming in for your service every 4-6 weeks depending on your growth and you’ll find you’ve got much less hair, it’ll be a quicker experience and it hurts much less. We do it ourselves every 4-6 weeks, trust me. We know!
