For some time we’ve been researching ways to keep me hairless, front and back. In current terms that’s called a full brazillian or manzillian. I’ve been hairless for many years. At one point, I had professional laser hair removal treatments. Over nine months, almost all my pubic hair was gone. Most of it isn’t growing back now, over fifteen years later. Some, particularly on my balls stubbornly reappears. We’ve used a home light treatment to try for permanent results. But there is still some foliage.
Much of my scrotal hair is grey. The darker hair yielded to the light treatments. Grey hair can’t be removed with lasers. There is also quite a bit of hair below my balls and on/in my butt. The light treatments made good headway there, but there is still work to be done. Most difficult for me is removing ball hair. Our electric body shaver painfully nicks me when used there. A body razor (Venus) does the work with fewer injuries, but stubble returns. We’ve used an epilator successfully on other spots, but the scrotum just gets caught in the machine and hurts me.
I suggested we could try waxing. A couple of weeks ago, we bought some Veet waxing strips. They worked pretty well on my balls. We decided to go into waxing a bit more scientifically. I like to learn everything I can about new things. YouTube has a wealth of videos about everything. This video is the best waxing video I’ve found. It’s a step-by-step course on male pubic hair removal. There are some other good videos out there as well. I hope Mrs. Lion will spend some time with these lessons. There’s more to waxing than I thought.
For example, before waxing a lotion is used to prepare the skin. It’s important because it helps open pores and remove any sweat and body oils. Next, to my surprise, light mineral oil is applied to the skin; just a light layer that is rubbed off. The oil keeps the wax from sticking to the skin but doesn’t prevent the wax from grabbing hairs, Live and learn! By the way, generic light mineral oil is perfect. There are very expensive waxing oils that are just scented mineral oil.
I also learned that there are two kinds of waxes: strip and stripless. The strip wax is applied and then a cloth is pressed into the wax and us used to pull the wax and hair away. Stripless wax is applied more thickly and then allowed to dry for a bit. It can be pulled away without the cloth strip. This is supposed to be much less painful than strip wax. It is what all the videos I watched recommend for balls, penis, and inner butt areas.
I ordered a can of stripless wax and a heater to melt it. I also got a can of strip wax that can be melted in the microwave. Strip wax can be applied to larger areas and is faster than stripless. This may seem like a lot of stuff, but it’s what’s required. Since a professional male brazillian waxing costs about $125 in our area, the do-it-yourself kit is a bargain. According to the way my hair grows, I will need waxing every two-to-four weeks. The process takes about a half hour or so. That’s about how long using the light device takes.
If my experience with the epilator is any indication, hair grows back softer and lighter after waxing. Subsequent treatments should be less painful and take less time. Speaking of pain, waxing does hurt; especially the first time. I think it’s worth the pain. There is no sharp stubble as hair grows back and the area stays clean an d smooth much longer.
It will be another week or so before we have all the supplies assembled and have the time to wax me. Like any other skill, I expect it will take a few sessions to master. I’m hoping that wax will be the hair removal answer we have been seeking.
