Many people still turn to shaving when it comes to hair removal but there are many reasons why waxing is much better for you including saving you time.
Here are five reasons to wax instead of shave.
It will last a whole lot longer
It only takes a few days after shaving for the area to start feeling prickly with hair re-growth. If you wax instead, you could be as smooth, for almost three weeks.
Waxing pulls the hair out from its root so it has to completely re-grow, giving you weeks of that smooth silky feeling.
2. The hair will grow back thinner
Many waxing clients report that after regular waxing, hair begins to grow back thinner and sometimes lighter. If you shave, you will be breaking the hair off at the thickest part of the follicle causing it to grow back appearing thicker.
3. The first time waxing always hurts the most.
There’s no avoiding it, waxing can hurt, especially if it is your first time but by having it done by a professional using a quality wax, will keep the pain to a minimum.
Many quality waxes are also developed with micro-circulation technology, which means it sets around the hair rather than pulling on the skin.
4. A smoother finish
How often do you shave but when you run your hands over the area, you can still feel a slightly prickly stubble? Annoying, isn’t it! As mentioned before, pre wax products will soften the skin before hair removal and a quality wax will pull the hair right out leaving no stubble.
5. Ingrown hairs are less likely
While ingrown hairs can be a common complaint with waxing, they will be far less likely than when you shave. This is because waxing removes the whole hair right down to the root, when it grows back it is thinner and tapered so it is less likely to get trapped under the skin.
