#Storytime-Yaaoch Part 4 (Back to DIY)

This post is loooonnnggg overdue. Check out my other Yaaoch (Wax) Posts. I was able to locate Bnatural Spa (No. 30, Mediterranean str, Imani Estate, Maitama) and although not as efficient as my former Morroccan lady cosmetologist at MB Hammam, this new spa served my purpose well. I was attended to by a Nigerian lady and although she was initially chatty and would complain about me leaving my hair for so long, etc; *rme* after a couple of sessions however we became cordial and i would even tip her 'cos she always did such a good job with my full Brazilian (they call it Playboy Wax) and underarm wax. Whenever the wax couldn't take out all the hair, she would go in with tweezers and take out all the hair and leave me with a super smooth and clean skin. Don't you just hate it when that one hair starts growing and spoils such a good job. 
Anyway fastforward to the main story, on this day, i called as i usually do to book an appointment with the spa and to confirm if my regular therapist was available. They informed me that she wasn't and if i'd like to shift my appointment for a date she was. I said i would have the appointment with whoever was available, i was under the assumption that all their staff were adequately trained and it wouldn't be an issue. BOY WAS I WRONG!! 

I showed up for my appointment on time and was led to the treatment room, i did the usual undressing and got on the bed, the new therapist was not chatty, thankfully, she did the usual trimming and got to work waxing. I was getting my usual full Brazillian (Playboy) Wax which cost about N6,000+ at the time. 
I have a highhhh pain threshold, i have had several waxing sessions and come out smiling. This was definitely THE WORST and tops my Yaaoch Part 3 experience. The therapist had no clue what she was doing and after yanking the wax strips off my skin severally, she started apologizing, telling me my hair was too tough, i had left it for too long since my last wax appointment, she has tried all she can and its not working, bla bla bla. I could feel the tears well up in my eyes when i looked down and realized the hair was basically intact with patches everywhere. I could have done a better job!! I was furious! I just kept thinking, i should have just waited for my regular therapist and avoided this trauma and waste of money. I got up and got dressed with my patchy wax job and my nether regions hurting like crazy. I considered making a complaint and not paying for the service but honestly i was sooo furious, embarrassed and teary eyed that i would have full on started crying. I paid and left and swore NEVER AGAIN!!! I'm done with waxing my nether region. 

My people i never looked back o, as much as i miss the smooth feel and not having to worry about hair for a long time, i'm done biko. I no come this life come suffer. I was also not ready to go back to shaving sticks as i much love being bump and spot free then i got a *light bulb* Scissors! I went on the hunt for small sharp scissors with curved blades, the type you find in a manicure set and i got to work. I got a small stool and sat in my shower and trimmed till i was satisfied. It takes forever but DIY is definitely the way for me. I still use cold wax strips for my underarms and lower legs. I'm gonna do a post soon on all the grooming we females constantly have to do. It can get tiring sha. Trimming with Scissors has replaced my Brazillian Wax until i can buy an epilator and try it out. I'll definitely let you guys know how that goes. 

Please Share it! :)


  1. Yikes! That really sucks man! Going through all that pain for nothing? I would've certainly complained!

    I've never waxed down there nor do I ever intend to. I also have an awesome DIY method which works wonders and leaves me smooth for over a month.

    I also use scissors, then Veet and an awesome Panasonic shaving razor for sensitive parts and it works like magic. No waxing for me.

    1. Real yikes @ummi.i was so madd i would v cried a river while making my complaint,plus it just felt like deja vu from my last bad experience,i jejely cut my losses.
      Please do share ur DIY method in a post,u will be saving lives out
      I stopped using Veet cos it seemed to make my hair grow faster x3 (biko i'm already quite hairy) and i hateee d smell. Is d razor electronic?my friend was just telling me about an awesome Grundig Xact5 one she uses n i'm willing to try it out, my only fear is ingrown hairs n bumps. Using Scissors is honestly so time consuming n i have to b meticulous.
