Waxing and cycling – to groom or not to groom?

I came across a fascinating post the other day about female cyclists getting waxed (he hem) down there and some discussion around if you get the whole lot removed (AKA Brazilian wax), is it going to hurt to ride? Should you groom or not groom then? And how much grooming is too much grooming?

From most reports, it’s best to avoid cycling (or gym or running) for 24 to 48 hours after waxing. Let everything settle down.

Also investing in a good chamois cream is a good idea and I’ve found a good cream called Bump Eraiser which is pretty effective for avoiding in grown hairs.

What’s your advice or tips on waxing as a female cyclist?
