I shall never understand why waxing always gets such a bad rap.
Sure the first time hurts like a bitch but afterwards, the hairs grow softer (if that makes any sense) and it gets easier to wax. Also, less hair grows over time.
I have been waxing for years now and hell, the results are worth it.
At most I'll wax probably once every three months. Facial wise its once every two weeks.
