Wax It All And Fell Silky Smooth And Hygenic

Waxing is a common and popular service offered at salons and spas and is considered the most efficient and effective method of hair removal, whether it is eyebrow, upper lip, armpit or intimate area many people choose waxing for its long lasting results.

Waxing is a Great Alternative to Shaving

Waxing is better as it removes hair from the root and will not regrow soon and is much more permanent as it thins the hair over time and lessens the hair growth. On the other hand shaving is daunting and frequent as the hair grows back soon and is thicker than before. Waxing exfoliates skin leaving it silky smooth.

Types of Wax

There are many types of waxing for removing unwanted hair- strip wax or soft wax and strip-less wax or hard wax.

Hard Wax

Strip-less wax or commonly known as hard wax, film wax or hot wax, it is thicker in consistency and applied warm with a spatula, after hardening wax is removed without the use of strip. Different types of hard kits are available in the market to choose from. Hard wax is available in the form of pellets, bricks and diskettes for easy melting.

Ingredients of Hard Wax

The base ingredients in hard wax are beeswax, rosin and microcrystalline waxes, various other ingredients are added to alter the consistency, flexibility and melting point.

Typical additions are emollients (lanoline and vegetable or mineral oils), paraffin for thickness, plant extracts with soothing and anti-microbial properties (tea tree, lavender, chamomile and rose), fragrance and coloring agents.

New generation waxes contain synthetic rosins and elastomers which increases pliability of hard wax.

Types and Tips of buying Hard Wax Kits

  • Wax warmer kits- used often for waxing large areas and probably is the best one. It helps to keep the wax continuously heated and at even temperature.
  • Microwavable kits- as the name suggest the wax is heated in the microwave. This kit is affordable but the wax heats up unevenly and may cause serious burns.

Advantages of using Hard Wax Kits

  • Hard wax formula is designed to remove hair from sensitive areas such as bikini and face.
  • It minimizes the discomfort and the possibility of skin irritation and lifting.
  • It has the ability to remove shorter and coarse hair.
  • The wax kit is equipped with all the necessary items required for smooth and efficient waxing.

Waxing can be painful for the people using it for the first time but the pain can be reduced if the following rules are followed:

  • Hard wax should be applied warm and have the consistency of a thick paint.
  • Use oil rather than the powder which creates a barrier and prevents wax from sticking to the skin.
  • Use medium firm pressure with spatula to apply the wax.
  • The edges of the strip should be slightly thicker to prevent from breaking when removing.
  • For strong and dense hair the layer of wax should be thick.
  • Use small narrow strips of wax on sensitive areas, dense hair growth or loose skin.
  • Wax applied in direction of hair growth and removed against.
  • Stretch the skin when applying and removing.
