Waxing is the process of hair removal from the root by using a covering of a sticky substance, such as wax, to adhere to body hair, and then removing this covering and pulling out the hair from the follicle.
The best known benefit of waxing is that the hair doesn't grow back very quickly. Waxing removes the hairs from the root. With shaving, the hairs are cut off close to skin level. Even with a very close shave, this still leaves a considerable amount of the hair just below the surface ready to appear in a day or two.
Is it true that waxing reduces hair growth?
How Waxing Regularly Leads To Less Hair Growth. Unlike shaving, waxing changes the texture of your hair over time. That's because waxing damages the hair follicles causing your hair to grow back thinner than before. Naturally, this means waxing can definitely reduce hair growth altogether
How Often Should You Wax?
You will gain the most benefits out of waxing when you schedule your appointments 3 to 5 weeks apart. For the legs, you will need to wax every 3 to 5 weeks. For the face, bikini line, and underarms, you will need to wax every 3 to 4 weeks.
Please don't shave for at least 4 weeks prior to your appointment to ensure that your hair is long enough! Also, if you've “let it go” down there and it seems out of control, don't worry!
