I’ve talked to you girls (and some of you guys!) about staying clean… hairless… and many of you shave to do so. I often encourage exploring getting rid of that hair though different hair removal methods but so many are afraid of the pain, I thought I’d explore this topic a little more.
First, staying hairless with waxing or sugaring is awesome because (number one!) you don’t have to shave anymore! While shaving is a ritual for quite a few of you, for others, the goal is to be hairless. When folks wax, the results last for at least two to three weeks. Heaven!
I have gotten waxed for years and far prefer it over shaving.
Anyone Can Get a Waxed
I am often asked what the aesthetician will think if a male/transwoman/sissies goes in to have hair removal. They think nothing of it! They do men and transwomen/sissies all the time. If you have a little dick or tiny ovaries, they will not make fun of you (even if you want them to). They are entirely professional and do their job with kindness and respect. Do not be scared to go!
There are a couple of typical ways to have hair removal. First is with strips and second is with Sugar or Colored Wax.
Getting Waxed with Strips
The way most people are familiar with getting waxed is with strips. The waxer uses a tongue depressor-looking stick to slather the hot wax onto your leg (or wherever).
To some it is really hot; others, it’s just a hot sensation… tolerable. Then, while the wax is still warm, s/he presses the cloth-like strips onto it. Once it is cold, it is stiff and then the strip is ripped off, really fast. STING!
It can often sting something fierce. Some describe it as painful. (I always say, “Small price, beauty!”) Others just think it’s really uncomfortable. If you have a low threshold for pain, you can take some OTC pain reliever before going and that will help a lot.
Each dollop of wax and then the strip is laid on a new hairy area, allowed to cool, and then ripped off again. And again. And again. Until you are hairless!
A strip-less way to be waxed is through Sugaring. The waxy spread is made with sugar and other ingredients, but no wax. Sugaring hurts infinitely less than with the strips to say hairless because the strips pull skin off, while sugaring does not. (Think of Steve Carell walking home after his waxing in 40-Year Old Virgin, in his bloody shirt.)
Sugaring is far less painful and is said to have the exact same effects for re-growth of hair as the strip method does… no hair growth for 2-6 weeks. And sugaring is better for pulling smaller hairs than waxing is.
The way I have my hair removal is with Green Wax. It is a much gentler way to have your hair removed. Like sugaring, no strips involved. The wax, very warm, but not as hot as the other type of wax, is slathered onto the hairy area and allowed to cool. My aesthetician has a small fan to cool the area quicker, but it doesn’t take long either way.
Then s/he will pull the wax off quickly and that is it! It barely hurts me and I am a baby about pain. I’ve gotten waxed with strips and had blood ooze out they rip so much skin off with the cloth. I have never had that happen with Green Wax. It merely pulls out the hair and that’s it.
When you call a Hair Removal Studio, make sure to ask how they do the do it… do they offer choices between waxing and sugaring? And what kind of wax do they use. If you aren’t satisfied with what they say, keep looking!
It is really important to take care of your waxed or sugared areas. Here is a wonderful article on quality aftercare. Follow the directions exactly and you will have beautiful smooth skin for a long time!
I would love to hear about your hair removal experiences… please do share them with me! Have a great time becoming hairless!
Every chicken sissy say “THANK YOU” to Ms. Daphne for this amazing advice on waxing! I’ll be sure to send all of my sissy girls to this blog post when they whine about how waxing is going to hurt and give them boo-boos! This was awesome!
Oh, Ms. Piper! I am so glad you liked the post! Thank you for your kind words and thanks for referring your girls to the post. I hope it helps!
Thanks so very much!
