Does Waxing Get Easier?
Will Waxing Hurt Less Over Time?
There are two major factors that impact why a wax is painful. These are your hair and your skin. If you take care of both and follow these tips, each wax will be less painful than the last.
If you have been shaving for a long period of time, you will find your hair is quite thick and dense. Once you begin waxing, your hair will start to grow back a lot less dense. With each wax, there is less hair to be removed. Specifically, this is apparent with full leg waxing, and Hollywood or bikini waxes. Anywhere you shave regularly will leave coarse, thick hairs. However, the thicker the hair, the easier it is to remove. When you start your waxing journey with us, you’ll never want to go anywhere else again.
Your first wax will remove the hairs which have fully grown, as not all your hairs grow in the same cycle. After your third consecutive wax appointment, with no shaving in between, you should find all your hair starts growing in the same pattern and cycle. This means a lot less tweezing and less ingrown hairs. All of that means less pain for you!
Lastly, the stronger and healthier your hair, the less likely it is to break and cause ingrown hairs. By removing hydrated hair from the roots, rather than breaking hair means we can give you the best possible results from your wax with the least amount of pain.
Your skin is the next factor that can affect your waxing experience.
If you have dry skin this can cause ingrown hairs and sensitivity, which will only result in a more painful wax. The day before any waxing treatment, ensure you exfoliate the skin to remove all dead skin cells. This will help the wax stick to your hair and not your skin so when the wax is removed it doesn’t grip the skin and cause additional pain.
After you have had your wax you will need to rehydrate the skin. Leg waxing can lead to dry legs, so we apply an after-wax solution to ensure legs remain silky and moisturised.
