Like its name, the wax smelled like real cherries. Being a professional and experienced waxing therapist, Shima asked me whether I had shaved my underarms in the past few days or weeks, I coyly admitted.
According to Shima, shaving the underarms will cause ingrown hair to develop and at the same, darken the skin of the underarms. Therefore, it is best to pluck the hair rather than shaving it.
Three layers of wax were applied to my underarms and once they were set, she pulled them off without me, screaming out in gruelling pain. Alas, I was fooled by the tube. Waxing wasn’t as painful as what the movies depicted.
