Frequently Asked Waxing Questions
How often do I need to wax?
How often you need to wax depends on how quickly your hair grows. Generally it will be every 3 to 6 weeks, or when the hair is ¼ inch long.
Will waxing make the hair grow back thicker, darker or heavier?
No, it will not. Waxing removes the hair by the root, sometimes weakening the root in the process. Therefore, if anything, waxing may make the hair finer and sparser with repeated regular waxing. With time, normal changes in our bodies can bring with them unwelcome or thicker hair in new places and sparser hair in others. Waxing will not change this process.
What is a normal skin reaction to waxing?
It is normal for your skin to show redness and or tenderness after waxing. Some skin is more sensitive than others and reactions may range from no redness and or tenderness at all to very red and or tender. The first time you wax an area, or if it has been a while since your last waxing, you will probably experience some redness and sensitivity afterwards. This usually subsides within a few hours, or for very sensitive skin, within 24 hours.
What can I put on my skin after waxing?
To prevent clogged pores, it is best not to put any heavy lotions on the skin after waxing. Aloe vera gel may be used to soothe the skin. It is recommended to wait 24 hours before applying antiperspirant to underarms after waxing that area.
Can I wax the day of a special occasion?
We recommend waxing one or two days before a special occasion to avoid any lingering redness and or tenderness.
