Waxing

Waxing is a fairly long-lasting method of hair removal – it can last from 3 to 6 weeks. Better yet, the hair grows back softer and sparser, reducing the “stubble effect”. If you wax consistently, waxing will change the growth cycle and physiology of your hair follicle. Continued waxing will also cause hair growth to diminish over time. It is the process of weakening the hair follicle; with repeated treatment the hair growth reduces.

In order to have the best waxing results, make sure that your hair is grown out to about 1/8th to 1/4th of an inch. This is the ideal length for hair to be before getting waxed because it will allow the wax to get a better grip on the hair and be removed directly from the root, rather than just the hair above the skin. If you are transiting between waxing and shaving, avoid shaving after a wax and if your hair is starting to grow, as shaving reverses the effect of waxing.
