The hairs need to be about 1cm long.

If you can find a beautician who does sugaring as opposed to waxing so for it! It's so much gentler on your skin (wax sticks to your skin and hair, whereas the sugar only sticks to hair so causes no skin trauma and is less painful because of that too!)

I love my sugaring lady!!

I made my appt for 5 days before we leave and it was $40 for half leg wax. We'll see how it goes. They said it lasts about 3-4 weeks, I hope.

I had to do a double take when I saw your post. I thought I was the only Nikki Powell around.

Great thread!! I haven't read through it all yet. For curly hair girls, Morrocan Oil Curly hair creme works great for me and it smells so nice too!!

Will get it done about 5 days before leaving. Legs you could do like 2 days before, as they aren't as delicate....
thinking about having uh hum areas done for first time for this trip. So ya saying that area will be ultra sensitive for a few days - give me the low down (no pun intended)

Haha, low down.

I think it's different for different people, but I have pretty sensitive skin so I might be the worst case scenario...

The day I get it done it just feels a little bit bruised afterwards, and then all the days after that it doesn't hurt at all, but each little hair follicle goes red and stays red for like 3/4 days so it isn't very pretty!

Just make sure not to sit in a hot bath for the first couple of days, as the pores are open and the hot water can make it redder, I also use aloe vera gel on it as it calms it down a lot quicker.

But I loooove my waxes and the 4 weeks of hairlessness is way worth a couple days of redness!

thanks. I've done my legs for awhile but have never ventured further north yet. - So it's good to know what to expect

No problems!!

I find leg waxing hurts too much for me!!! So hopefully more northerly regions should be OK for you!

I find that it hurts like heck and It hurts for a few days afterwards. The redness will subside in 3 or 4 days. I've also been told not to have it done close to that time of the month as for some reason the area is more sensitive I can't explain that, it is just what I've been told.

I have a question, appropriate to this thread. What is the practicality, if any, of wearing a skirt? I was thinking about this. I do tend to wear skirts in the summer quite a bit. I hadn't thought about wearing one to WDW but they do keep ya cool. I just don't know, though, climbing into rides, getting wet, if they would be a really bad choice. Not the big flowing hippie skirts, but something more like a shorter straight skirt? Or maybe the big flowing hippie ones would actually be better?

Or would I just look too "what not to wear" traipsing around the Magic Kingdom in a hippie skirt, fannie pack, and matching family t-shirt? Yikes. Maybe I just answered my own question?

Anyone? Anyone?
I've though abt it myself, the best advice I came up w/ is the skirt that comes with the shorts under (skort?) I think thats the name, I found a pair a while back at old navy.

What about a summer dress? I was thinking of taking one or two with me when we went next week since it's going to be so hot! I'm going to bring pants and shorts of course, as back up. But I was hoping the dress would keep me nice and cool. I'm one of those girls that always wears something under the dress so no one see my undergarments. Any advice or just don't do it? Haha!

One of my best friends just filled me in on a little secret.....she has super thick, curly hair like me. She can go 4-5 days w/out washing it by using a dry shampoo called "Psssst!" I'm not saying we should all go 5 days w/out washing our hair, but I'm curious to check out this product.

Think about being at MK all day & rushing back to your resort to get ready for signature ADRs or something. You could just spray your hair w/ Psssst & it would be as good as new! Yes, I know---it sounds gross to not get totally freshened up, but it could be so handy if you're in a time crunch. We always tend to push the time limits. My Walgreens was out the other day, but I need to check at CVS.

(if you buy 2 shampoo bars, you get a free tin to store one!) They make 2 varieties with conditioner right in the bar, so you don't need to buy separate conditioner, but of course, they sell separate conditioner too, including a solid conditioner.

I always take Lush hair products when travelling, it's so easy to just toss a tin with my shampoo into a bag and not have to worry about leakage!

Lush's big selling point is that the products are all hand-made, cruelty-free, and FRESH!!
OH.MY.GOD.

I bought the Lush shampoo this weekend, and it is amazing!!

I've recently gone back to using more natural products on my hair and the lush shampoo is much better by far.

This will definitely be coming with me to Florida!!

Thank you for the advice

xx
