About a year ago I went to a major franchise waxing place and had my back waxed. It was 1 hour of pure torture and I had that green wax in my hair and all over my gold chain which was a real pain to get out. My back hurt for a month and had big red bumps all over for just as long. I bought Nads after reading the reviews and the other night I finally talked my wife into doing it while we watched Monday Night Football. First of all using Nad’s is a hell of a lot easier than using wax. You use it at room temperature and it washes right off with water. It also didn’t hurt half as much as wax, and did not leave any bumps or irritation. I will never go back to another salon again as this is much easier and less painful, plus it costs a lot less.
