Benefits of Waxing
Waxing pulls the hair out by the root, so it takes much longer to grow back! Even if have to shave every day, waxing can allow you to be smooth and hair free for 2-6 weeks.
Hair grows in finer!
Hair comes back in finer and softer than it does with shaving, where shaving can give the appearance of thicker hair, due to the razor only removing the hair at skin level, blunting the ends of the hair shaft. Waxing leaves your skin feeling silky smooth! Since waxing pulls the hair out from the root, you are not left with the stubble shaving can leave behind.
You are less likely to get ingrown hairs with waxing!
When you shave, you only remove the hair at skin level. The end of the hair is blunt and can become trapped under the skin and begin to grow sideways.
Waxing removes the entire hair from the root.
The new hair grows in finer and is tapered at the end, which means it is less likely to get trapped.
Does waxing hurt?
Everyones pain tolerance is going to be different, but it is generally very well tolerated. What you can expect is a pin prick or slight tingling sensation immediately after the wax is removed lasting a few seconds. Redness may occur for a few minutes to a few hours, depending on how sensitive you may be. After regular waxing, the discomfort lessens, which is why it is ideal to stay on schedule with Bikini and Brazilian waxing!
