The Endless Possibilities of Waxing

Written by  

Waxing can be described as somewhat ancient as it originated in Egypt, where the Egyptians would utilize seashell tweezers, pumice stones, beeswax, and sugaring for hair removal. Waxing and sugaring are still popular hair removal methods used in today's society. In fact, most of the professional waxing chains carry waxes with beeswax as the main ingredient.

Over time, if a person continues waxing regularly, they also have the chance to completely kill the hair follicle. Every time a client gets a wax, they are weakening the hair Beefollicle; weaker hair follicles produce finer, thinner hair. It is also the reason for ingrown hair, which is why some turn to other methods of hair removal.

The fix, however, is actually very easy! Professionals need to have a good after care and homecare routine for their clients to keep the waxed areas properly exfoliated so the weaker hair can grow through the skin. If not, the hair will grow under the skin instead. A glycolic cleanser or lotion will safely keep the skin exfoliated without overdoing it. Too much exfoliation can cause unwanted irritation. Professionals should not consider using a scrub on delicate areas, such as the face or bikini, if the granules are not perfectly circular because they risk creating a rough skin texture. However, if professionals choose a glycolic- or salicylic-based cleanser or lotion, those options are mild enough to use daily and keep ingrown hairs at bay.

Waxing is an affordable art. It is quick, can be maintained monthly, and fits nicely within most budgets. Clients will not have to worry about shaving all the time or paying a large amount of money for more expensive forms of hair removal. Waxing is one of the safest and most effective hair removal methods that has been around for centuries and is still used today. It is safe for everyone. Once clients find the right professional that suits their personality and fits their needs, the possibilities are endless!
