Hey everyone,

I'm a male in my early 20's and I have a question about waxing.

I'm really looking for some advice on whether or not it is possible to wax your bum. I've searched the forums with no luck and I really would like some help on the subject.

I have very hairy legs, the hair starts on the top of my foot and goes up my lower and upper leg (front, back and sides) which doesn't bother me. What does bother me is that this thick BLACK hair then covers my bum completely. This never really bothered me as I thought all men were like this (as after all we did evolve from apes :D) It was only as I got older and started having girl friends that I realised it wasn't really normal. Most girls either laugh or are completely put off by it and I want to have it removed.

I've looked at electrolysis, but it's very expensive, so waxing is the route I'm looking to go down.

I've tried shaving cry and hair removal cream cry crazy but was the most uncomfortable I have ever been in my life, to the point where I couldn't sit, lay or stand lol

So is waxing your bum possible?

Can I do it myself?

What kit?

What after skin treatment?

Many Thanks!

There's no reason you can't do it yourself but it's probably a tricky area to do. Depending how much you have I find that using the Nair or Veet can't remember which one, spray is really good. It's just the 3 minute one and is almost like hair spray it sprays out so it provides really good coverage.

If the hair is very dark and coarse I'd suggest looking into doing laser then. Waxing you'll have to do all the time where laser will be permanent. You may even be happy with the reduction you get from a few laser sessions since all the very dark coarse hair will be removed first. You'll find that if you did use hair removal creams or shave that it will be much better since you won't see as much of the stubble since all the dark coarse hair will be gone. Or you can continue a full laser session 6-8 treatments and you'll probably have at least 80% of the hair removed with only the finer lighter hair remaining. Electrolysis could get rid of the rest or you may find it's acceptable the amount you have remaining.

Hi,

Thanks for the quick response. I've tried hair removal cream (both menís "Gel" and womenís "Spray")and within 12 hours I had some stubble. Within 24 hours or so my bum was covered with stubble all over and because you have to wait 48 to 72 hours before you can use the hair removal cream again it meant I had to put up with sharp stubble for days. Also the stubble made my skin really saw and itchy and left pink dimples all over my bum.

I haven't used it since and the hair is thick and black again and completely covers my bum. Would waxing not work?

Thanks!

No waxing would definitely work it's just that you'd have to do it every couple months or so and if it's something that you're planning on doing for good, laser will be cheaper in the long run. Once you do one laser session the hair all falls out and you'll be completely smooth for close to 2 months, then you repeat 6-8 times until most of it is all gone. Would prob be $100-200 per session.

I can afford a wax kit at £15-£20 but can't afford laser treatment at £100+ a session at the moment (and am too embarrassed to have someone laser my bum). I'll see how waxing goes and hopefully look into laser for the long term.

Thanks

Oh okay right I thought you meant you'd get it professionally waxed. I'm the same could never do laser lol luckily I don't have issues there phew. You can definitely do it yourself it just might take some practice because it's such an awkward area to be working in. Definitely not impossible though.

Get yourself an epilator Braun and Philips make good ones the cheaper versions just as good as the expensive ones wink you will only need to use it probably once a week to ten days but befor first use either trim your short hair with clippers or shave it all off and wait for it to get stubbly and then use the epilator otherwise you will get a rash and it will be quite painfull if the hair is to long when you start.

Forgot yes you can wax your bum but the epilator route is much less messy and time consuming

I've used an epilator before and it works fine. Do trim it down first though. Also may want to apply some sort of bump cream afterwards too.
If you wax, unless you are very flexible, getting it all and in the correct direction would be tricky. Maybe you have a close friend who could help? An idea anyway.

That would be an interesting conversation "Hey dude want to come over tonight drink some beers, oh and try waxing my butt for me?" Haha.
