Why Waxing is Better Than Shaving
Here Are 5 Reasons Why Waxing is Better Than Shaving
Everybody has their own favourite method of hair removal. Whether it’s out of ease, out of pain-reduction or simply because they don’t know about the other methods. Well, we’re here to tell you why waxing is better than shaving. Most people start out their hair removal journey using trusty razor blades, but it’s never too late to change.
The only effort you have to put in with waxing is exfoliating beforehand and booking your appointment. When you’re getting waxed by a professional, they do all the work for you. They might ask you to hold the skin taught, but this is definitely far easier than shaving. The thought of being stooped over in the shower shaving in rush before work is one that never has to come true again.
No Razor Burn
One of the main reasons for hair removal is to give you the confidence to show off your legs, arms and bikini lines. If you’ve shaved and now have razor burn, you’re definitely not going to want to show that off. Razor burn is painful and itchy. Waxing eliminates this annoying rash completely.
Reduces Hair Growth
Waxing the same area over and over reduces the hair growth over time. This is due to hair papilla damage which is caused by waxing. The hair papilla is responsible for supplying nutrients to the hair in order for it to grow. Without the papilla, the hair can’t grow.
Softer Hair Re-Growth
Shaving leaves your hairs naturally stubbly and spiky. When there’s regrowth, this can mean your legs can be itchy and uncomfortable as the hairs break the skin when they grow. Shaving leaves a blunt tip, whereas waxing removes the hair from the root. This means when it grows back it’s soft and fine.
When you shave, hair grows back quickly. This is because you’re not removing it from the root. The results from waxing, however, last up to a month. You do have to allow your hair to regrow in order to wax again, but our amazing Lycon wax can remove hairs as small as 2mm.
