Getting hairless is simply amazing! And there are many ways to achieve it – shaving, plucking and hair removal wax. Of the three, waxing is the most effective hair removal solution, but is it really? For men and women looking to achieve permanent hair removal results, you got to know the truth.
If you’ve just started with waxing, you should know certain things about it that might surprise or even shock you! In today’s article, we’ll discuss why it is not the effective solution for hair removal especially if you’re looking for permanent results.
Some claim that it’s one of the best ways of removing unwanted hair.
It is done by removing the entire hair starting from the roots or the hair follicles.
While it is more effective than shaving because it gets rid of the hair from the roots and not only from the skin surface, it is not permanent and long lasting. In fact, (annoying) hair will grow back after a couple of weeks. In short, hair will re-grow even if it is claimed to be sparser or lighter – or not at all.
But going permanently hairless is untrue! This claim has confused thousands of men and women. Do not fall into the trap of believing this myth because it simply a lie.
” Did you know that waxed area won’t just let hair grow back, but this procedure can even cause ingrown hair, which is harder to manage and annoying to see?”
And that’s not the only problem. In fact, you might also suffer from chicken skin, which is totally off. Just imagine having chicken skin on your legs, armpits (and genitals?). That’s something that can actually ruin your and your partner’s day.
And at the beach, you might not even have the guts of wearing those lovely bikinis you bought before the summer because your skin is disappointing.
Speaking of unsightly results, did you know that waxing could also cause skin darkening? That’s because of skin abrasion! Waxing, without even saying, irritates the skin and causes more problem than you had in the beginning. Those with sensitive skin, in particular, can suffer from worse skin darkening effects.
Now, are you someone who’s trying to go hairless but looking for something less maintenance?
You shouldn’t just avoid shaving or plucking but also hair removal wax altogether.
They won’t deliver permanent results, but would just make you repeat the process from scratch. So if you’re a young professional who does not like wasting on temporary results, then you must know that waxing is not for you.
Because it requires monthly maintenance – meaning you have to see your service provider at least once a month for the treatment, or maybe twice if your hair is growing back faster.
All right and then we’re not going to lie. Waxing is painful. While some claim that it won’t be as painful as the first try, still it comes with pain (redness and maybe swelling depending on the person being treated).
While everyone has different pain thresholds and tolerance, you will feel pain especially if your skin is suffering from dehydration. It is also not advisable to get a waxing procedure four days before or after your monthly period. Plus, if you have coarse or thick hair, you’re going to suffer from more pain.
Hair removal wax also has certain restrictions. For one, you cannot shave between appointments. How un-cool is that? We understand though because shaving will disrupt the hair growth cycle that will lead to a thicker hair volume for your next appointment.
And here’s another thing. As hair is growing in three cycles, not all hair will be removed in the first session. It only means that you should go for three different sessions so that the hair will come out – and be totally eliminated for that smooth, soft to the touch skin.
Your skin will end up red, blotchy and irritated. After the session, your skin will be left irritated and red. That is why clients are advised to wear loose and comfortable clothing. Plus, they’re recommended not to apply too much friction with sexy, tight clothing that might lead to more irritation.
