Last month before my Langkawi trip I made my first Brazilian wax appointment at Strip Bangsar. I was very excited.
I was already imagined myself having no hair “down there” in Langkawi, dancing happily in my bikini. But they vanished as soon as I heard that mine was too short to wax! She needs them to be at least 0.5cm and I just shaved mine like a week ago or so. Clearly I know nothing about waxing!
She asked me to come back next month and if I plan to go to the beach, I gotta do it 3-4 days in advance. I left the place with heavy hearted, after watching some videos on youtube, I was already prepared being tortured that day.
One month later…
I came back to the same outlet a week ago before my performance night.
I booked a session on Saturday at 10 am but apparently they were quite busy on weekend. Once you missed your appointment, you gotta wait till the next session available. They arranged another session for me at 12pm.
Strip Bangsar’s environment was stylish and their staffs were friendly. I also believe that my therapist was very experience, she has been working for 8 years at Strip. Few days before my session, a friend told me that she went to other shops for Brazilian Waxing and there were two therapist waxing her. “Unpleasant and very awkward moment” she said. Lucky that I didn’t have this experience.
I chose hardwax as they said its less painful. During the treatment, the therapist applied the wax. The wax was hot but still bearable. She waxed the side areas first and it wasn’t painful. Perhaps its also because she kept talking to me and I was obviously got distracted. Then she moved to middle part, I shouted once!
The process like 15 to 20 minutes only. As soon as she finished, I didn’t feel any pain at all.
With RM114.5 (for woman and hardwax) or less 30% (for first timer only), I went home with pubic hair free! Post treatment (serum) is also available upon request (RM18)
24 hours after wax, she suggested NOT to:
No hot baths
No swimming or sunbathing
No heat or UV treatments like sun beds or saunas
No tight clothing
No perfumed products including deodorant, anti-perspirant, self-tanner or make up
No touching, scrubbing or rubbing of the area (unless you want a bacteria infection)
No intensive exercise
Although it said that Brazilian waxing will not cause any ingrown hair, I found few small pimples a day after waxing. I read from the internet that its normal for someone who never done any waxing before.
So, if you’d like to do Brazilian Waxing, give a try to Strip. I can’t guarantee anything but my first experience was awesome and I would wanna go back next month :)
