How long, or short, should my hair be for waxing?
We recommend you have at least 2 weeks of hair growth, especially for your first waxing appointment. This allows the wax to grab the hairs more easily giving you a better result.
How often should I get my waxing treatment?
Every 4 to 6 weeks. Regular waxing is essential. The skin will be less sensitive if waxing is done every 4 to 6 weeks. Over time, with regular waxing, the hair follicle will have less and less of a grip on the hair to be pulled and the hairs will come out more easily.
Another reason to wax frequently is that you may even experience less hair growth over time.
What should I expect after my first waxing treatment?
Hairless skin! Also, everyone's skin reacts differently to waxing treatments, but you can expect to have temporary redness and minor irritation for a day or two. Proper post-wax care will alleviate these symptoms quickly.
Will I get ingrown hairs?
Waxing removes the entire hair, root and all, from the follicle. Your skin naturally hardens and thickens over the area that was waxed so it is important to keep that area gently exfoliated. We sell an amazing roll on post waxing serum that is recommend for use the first few days after your wax and then again once daily when the hairs start to grow back in.
How do I benefit from waxing?
Waxing reduces hair growth when performed at every four weeks. While shaving crops the hair at the skin's surface, waxing pulls it out by the root, so it grows back softer, finer, and thinner. Waxing is great for those who are tired of the hassle of shaving several times per week. The more you wax, the less hair grows back.
Will waxing make my hair grow back thicker/stronger/darker?
Waxing does not cause you to grow more hair follicles. In fact, if you become a regular waxer, you will notice that your hair will become quite sparse and not as coarse.
When hair is shaved, it is cut off at the thick part of the hair, which is why you can feel stubble the next day. A properly waxed hair is removed from the root, and when the hair starts to grow back it is a new hair, very fine at the tip, so no stubble.
