Waxing reduces hair growth when performed at every three to five weeks (Hair growth speed dependant). While shaving crops the hair at the skin’s surface, waxing pulls it out by the root, so it grows back softer, finer, and thinner. Waxing is great for those who are tired of the hassle of shaving several times per week. Here at No-thirtySix we use Hara Soft Wax which is manufactured in Britain.
They have strengthened their position in the marketplace with the addition of new products along their journey, although It is of the finest quality and a firm favourite with therapists around the world. Suitable for use on any area of the body and effective on very strong hair growth.
Everyone is different – typical hair cycles mean somewhere between every three to five weeks. Regular waxing is essential the benefits of this include the skin becoming less sensitive if waxing alongside the hair follicle having less of a grip on the hair to be pulled and the hairs will come out more easily, with most experiencing over time less hair growth.
Waxing like any treatment can be a journey so it may take up to three waxing treatments to achieve smooth skin due to the fact that hair grows are in stages and all of your hair is never at the same stage. It is very important to avoid shaving between waxing appointments, this will interrupt the process and stimulate the hair growth again. So if you have a big event coming up or are going on holiday you’ll need to plan your waxing treatments now, for the best results. Talk to a therapist today to discuss in more depth.
Hairless skin! Everyone’s skin reacts differently to waxing treatments but you may experience temporary redness and minor irritation for a day or two. Proper post-wax care will alleviate these symptoms quickly. If you’re a bride, attending a special occasion or going on holiday, I recommend receiving waxing services a month before your special day or departure to see how your skin reacts. If everything is fine, reschedule another wax a few days before.
It’s possible - waxing removes the entire hair, root and all, from the follicle. Your skin naturally hardens and thickens over the area that was waxed so it is important to keep that area gently exfoliated. Use a gentle scrub in that area about 2 days after waxing and continue to exfoliate 1 to 2 times a week thereafter. Remember, we said gentle! Product bases to consider are tea tree and lavender oil as they are both antimicrobial and antibacterial which will prevent irritation. Coming into summer the opportunity will be less but in winter try to wear loose-fitting clothes after your treatment to give your skin chance to reduce moisture and breathe. The bikini, lip and underarms are where we tend to perspire the most. Perspiration and moisture cause bacteria to grow. Once that area has been waxed, the follicle is wide open to this bacteria creeping in so try to avoid heavy exercise that will increase perspiration and chaffing for about 24-48 hours after waxing.
No. Please do not shave between waxing appointments! It disrupts the hair growth cycle resulting in more hair at your next appointment.
