Waxing Tips

29 Mar

  1. Hair Should be between 1/4 and 1/2 inch long. If it is shorter the wax will not adhere to the hair. If it is longer it is more uncomfortable. Longer hair can be trimmed in necessary. If you shaved the time to wait is about two weeks., five weeks between waxes.
  2. Take a couple Advil prior to your wax. Also a numbing cream can be purchased prior to your wax and used 30 to 40 min before the wax for additional comfort.
  3. After your wax do not engage in activities like jogging for 24 hours. Sweat and heat can irritate newly waxed skin. Swimming or hot tub use is not advised for the first 24 hours after a wax.
  4. Starting the day after your wax exfoliate the area with a mild scrub. Do this daily until your next wax.
  5. Do not use lotions or washes with heavy perfumes right after a wax.
  6. If you still suffer from ingrown a roll on treatment can be purchased to treat this.
  7. Pre book your next wax for five weeks. This will ensure you are getting all your hair on a similar growth cycle and that the hair is at the optimal length for the most comfortable wax.
