Methods of Waxing
- The first option is hard or strip-less waxing. For this, people apply molten wax to the areas they desire to remove the hair from, after that allowing the wax to cool. The solidified wax is then quickly removed by hand, coming out with hair attached to it. This technique does not necessitate the employment of strips or clothes to peel off the wax. Consequently, it is not only less painful but also ideal for individuals with sensitive skin.
- The second option, strip waxing, involves covering of the molten wax applied on the skin with a strip of cloth or paper. When quickly removed, the strip will come off with the wax adhering to it along with the hair attached to the wax. It is more painful as compared to hard waxing.
- Wax products can be costly depending on both quality and waxing technique adopted by the user. Moreover, you may require an esthetician adding to the financial implications.
