Just as above really, it's painful, but my god it will be worth it! And before I get the comments about going to a salon, I'm skint, I can't afford to right now!!

RJnomore1 Sun 26-Feb-17 14:26:22

Omg are you insane???!!!

Why not buy some veet 😬

rightknockered Sun 26-Feb-17 14:28:09

Don't do it! Just give yourself a trim/shave/veet

TheMasterNotMargarita Sun 26-Feb-17 14:30:23

It'll be fine! I do it with the wax straps.
Make sure you
1. Are warm
2. Pull skin taut
3. Don't be chicken and rip it off fast.

I'd hold your hand but I think you'll need them both 😂😂😂😂

It never works for me. I just end up patchy!
Good luck shock

rightknockered Sun 26-Feb-17 14:30:51

If you must, I hope you're using warm wax and a good mirror

TheLongRider Sun 26-Feb-17 14:30:56

Ouch! You don't need a hand hold, you're going to need both hands to do the job properly! shock

TheMasterNotMargarita Sun 26-Feb-17 14:31:26

Oh and trim with scissors first.

TheMasterNotMargarita Sun 26-Feb-17 14:32:45

** Strips

rightknockered Sun 26-Feb-17 14:32:51

just hope your pants don't stick to you afterwards

NoArmaniNoPunani Sun 26-Feb-17 14:32:57

Yowsers, this reminds me of when I tried to epilate my minge and it ran away with itself and caught my flap in the roller

FredAstairesUnderwear Sun 26-Feb-17 14:33:15

I think I am insane but I can't shave as recently no matter what I use my skin ends up with horrific shaving rash I have tried everything you can think of to solve this but it's not working and I used to have waxes all the time (before DD when I could afford to), I've done a few bits and it's not too bad!

WanderingTrolley1 Sun 26-Feb-17 14:33:16

Ouch. Good luck, OP!

rightknockered Sun 26-Feb-17 14:34:03

Punani, pmsl sorry

rightknockered Sun 26-Feb-17 14:36:11

I once tried to do it myself, took me weeks to recover. There was blood, bruises, and scabs

FredAstairesUnderwear Sun 26-Feb-17 14:36:24

NoArmarni PMSL! You've really made me laugh hahaaa! grin

molemonkey Sun 26-Feb-17 14:40:17

I was left with bruised skin and bits of bleeding skin when I stupidly thought I could do it myself as my usual waxer couldn't fit me in. Biggest mistake ever, had to go to my waxer and get her to fix the mess i made! She told me off through trying to stifle a laugh. I told her to hurry up and finishing pissing herself and fix my lady bits 😂

TheGrumpySquirrel Sun 26-Feb-17 14:43:16

I used to do it myself but not full Brazilian you are braver than me

TheMasterNotMargarita Sun 26-Feb-17 14:43:45

Slightly concerned it's only you and I, Fred.
NoArmarni ouchy ouch ouch.

ArriettyClock1 Sun 26-Feb-17 14:49:46

I was on a residential training course and thought, 'I'll have loads of evening time to kill, I'll take my hot wax and heater and do my own Brazilian'.

OMG - it took me about 3 hours and the result was not even remotely like having it done at a salon where they go right up around your bum hole etc.

Totally not worth it.

FinallyHere Sun 26-Feb-17 14:55:24

No, sorry, 'fraid not, I just can't do it.

Just incase, though, if you start and then are reluctant to continue (sensibly), lots of oil can get the wax off again.

GoofyIsACow Sun 26-Feb-17 14:58:44

I do my own, although i haven't done it for ages, i have trimmed more recently, you have however inspired me to do it this evening!
You will be fine, mirror, HOT wax and nerves of steel!

RJnomore1 Sun 26-Feb-17 15:00:08

This is a thread that needs updates op

FredAstairesUnderwear Sun 26-Feb-17 15:07:26

I've had to stop, I'll be honest the top and the sides were a doddle the pain was that weird kind that hurts but in a "ooo let's do it again" pressing a bruise kind of way. However, the closer down I got to my actual bits I was shaking at the thought of pulling it off myself. I was a bit of an idiot really!
The top bit looks fine and smooth but I just can't bring myself to do anymore!

RJnomore1 Sun 26-Feb-17 15:33:08

That's probably a wise move.

Sounds like a good tidy up though. You're much braver than me.
