The idea of having a hairless body is not one that is new to society.
An Ancient Practice
In fact, in ancient times it was considered pure to have a hairless body, especially within the ancient Egyptian culture. The Egyptians were one of the first to use what is now called body sugaring, a type of waxing that uses the mixture of sugar, lemon, water and sometimes essential oils. The paste is placed on the body and then peeled off in the direction of the hair follicles to limit irritation.
In recent times, waxing has become a popular choice for women and men who want to get rid of excess hair. For women, Brazilian waxing is a common choice for wanting temporary hair removal in their pubic region. The term Brazilian waxing describes a wax that completely eliminates all hair in the pubic region.
This originated in Brazil with women who were looking for a way to be hairless in the, then popular, thong bikinis.
Popular In The United States
The trend was not as popular in the United States and Europe until the late 1990’s. As celebrities started to highlight the process, it became more prevalent and a choice for many women wanting to improve their hygiene and how they look.
Brazilian waxing has now become a very popular choice among many American women.
For those looking for Brazilian waxing in Montgomery, Alabama, it is important to think about the different options. Body sugaring, opposed to traditional waxing, has shown to be an effective treatment for Brazilian waxing and is known to produce less ingrown hairs because of the way the sugar wax is peeled off of the skin.
Some people think that this type of waxing hurts, but in fact there are many benefits to having a Brazilian waxing treatment done, and it can be accomplished with a short appointment.
