Waxing is a hair removal method which is semi-permanent in nature and removes the hair from the root. It will take around two to eight weeks for new hair to grow back; however, in some individuals, there is re-growth in a week. Almost all the areas of the body can be waxed such as eyebrows, face, legs, arms, back, abdomen, bikini area and feet. There are different types of waxing for removing unwanted hair. Waxing should be done by a trained Aesthetician. There are some areas which require a licensed/trained cosmetologist or Aesthetician to perform waxing.
Strip waxing is done by spreading a wax combination in a thin layer over the skin. A paper strip or cloth is then applied and pressed on the wax layer, then ripped/jerked off in the opposite direction of hair growth using quick movement. Hair is removed along with the wax. Strip wax can be made at home also using water, lemon juice, honey and sugar.
