How To Do Self Brazilian Wax?

Brazilian waxing is a popular hair removal treatment that results in smooth, hair-free skin.

While going to a salon is an option, many people prefer the ease and privacy of doing it yourself at home.

We’ll lead you through the steps to getting a salon-quality Brazilian wax in the comfort of your own home in this article.

How To Do Self Brazilian Wax?

Buy The Right Wax

You’ve tried a few and finally found a wax that works so well that you’ll never want to try another for the rest of your life.

It is available in two formulations: one for microwave use and one for use with a wax warmer. While you’re at it, pick up some applicator/popsicle sticks and tweezers.

Make Sure Nobody Is Home

You’d sooner have a drunken mug shot made public than have a single person walk in on you waxing your vagina.

It’s an emotional encounter, as you’ll discover—a voyage between you, the nerve endings in your crotch, and nobody else.

Heat The wax

I didn’t have a microwave or a wax warmer in college, so I heated the aluminum container in a shallow saucepan of boiling water.

This was a stupid concept. I recommend purchasing a wax warmer because it will keep the wax constantly heated as you work and will be less messy.

Make Sure Your Hair Is The Right Length

Aim for 14 inches of growth. If the hair is too short, the wax cannot catch it and pull it out at the root. If you wait too long, you’ll be in excruciating discomfort because you have little to no control over which tangled and unruly hairs the wax holds onto when you apply it.

If the hair is longer than 14 inches, use an electric trimmer to cut it shorter. You might be interested in the Schick Hydro Silk TrimStyle Razor. It’s similar to CatDog in that it has a razor on one end and a battery-powered trimmer on the other.


Shower with soap and water, then thoroughly dry. Because it’s mainly isopropyl alcohol, it’ll evaporate without needing to be rinsed. It allows the wax to firmly grab the hair strands.

Stir And Test The Wax

You should be doing this all the time while working. Again, the wax warmer is the greatest option for maintaining a steady, safe temperature.

Stir the pot with an applicator stick, scrape off excess wax, and test the temperature by dabbing the inside of your wrist, you’ll know if it’s too hot.

Smear The Wax On Your Hair

Work in parts, beginning with the inner thighs and working your way in and out. Apply the hard wax as thickly as you would peanut butter on a slice of toast.

Each smear should be roughly an inch wide and three inches long and should always be applied in the direction of hair development.

Allow the wax to set for about 30 seconds; when you touch it with your fingertip, you should hear a tapping noise.

That’s what’s fantastic about this wax, it’s essentially hard plastic, and once applied, there’s only one way to remove it.


Pull the section away in the opposite direction of hair growth, trying to keep the skin beneath the section firm as you do so to reduce pain.

I can assure you that it will be agonizing. Also, remember that the wax will not come off any other way—it will not melt away with warm water if you change your mind.

There is no numbing cream, spray, or over-the-counter tablet that will dull the discomfort, so don’t waste your money. But, when you’re finished, it’ll only add to your sense of success.

The most severe spots, you’ll notice, are also the most sensitive—that is, they feel the greatest during sex. The back region is the least painful.


Repeat the process as many times as you can stand it. Remember that the back hurts the least, so after you de-fuzz around the labia, it’s all downhill. Remove any stray hairs. That portion, too, stinks.

Remove Wax Residue

When you’re through, you’ll probably still have small chunks of wax stuck in your crevices. GiGi’s Wax Off Wax Remover lotion applied to a cotton ball will remove them.


Have hand mirror close by and regularly check your work while you wax. Standing in front of a full-length mirror can also assist you ensure that you are applying the wax to the correct locations.

Trim the hair you wish to remove to 3-5mm. This is the ideal location for an efficient waxing session. Too short or too long hair will be more difficult to remove. Before waxing, trim or grow your hair to this length.

Before applying the wax, ensure it is free of any moisturizers or lotions and absolutely dry. It’s also a good idea to exfoliate the region at least two days prior to get rid of any dead skin cells.

Ensure your wax has the right consistency. If you’re using a hard wax, like Nad’s Hair Removal Brazilian and Bikini Wax, warm it up by following the instructions on the package exactly. For maximum results, hard wax should resemble thick honey.

Spread evenly. If you’re using a hard wax, apply it to your skin in a thick, even coating. When using a gel wax, such as Nad’s Natural Hair Removal Sugar Wax Kit, ensure your coating is even and thin. Spread in the direction of hair growth at all times!

One of the most common rookie blunders is failing to do so! While removing the wax, use your free hand to keep the skin taut.

Remove the wax in one quick motion. Pull it as near to the skin as possible in the opposite direction of hair growth. Pulling in an upward motion will only pull the skin, not the hair.

Post-care is very important! Avoid any scents or textiles that may irritate the skin for at least 24 hours, and exfoliate lightly at least three times each week to avoid ingrown hairs.

Congratulations, you’ve just finished a self Brazilian wax! It is absolutely possible to achieve a smooth and hair-free bikini area at home with the correct tools, preparation, and technique. Remember that practice makes perfect, so don’t be disheartened if you don’t do it right the first time. You’ll become more adept and at ease with the waxing procedure with each session.
