Are you a regular waxer? Waxing has definitely grown to become a very mainstream beauty service among women, and men. It’s pretty standard for people to get some area of their body waxed on a regular basis. If you get waxed pretty regularly, you’re probably always eager to find ways to elongate your time between appointments. Because let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to be able to go longer periods of time before heading back into the salon for another wax appointment? Well, you may be in luck, because we’ve discovered some tips on how to make your wax job last longer – and we’re sharing them, now!
Make Sure Your Hair Is The Right Length
We get it, the point of getting a wax is to eliminate any unwanted hair you have on your body. But the thing is, if your hair isn’t the length that’s suggested by the experts in that area of the body the wax will actually miss some of the hair – causing you to need to get your wax appointments more often. So, instead of rushing to get an appointment scheduled as soon as your hair starts to grow a bit, resist the urge and really make sure that it’s the length that’s suggested for that area of the body before heading in. This will help to ensure that ALL of the hair will be waxed off and prevent you from needing to make appointments as often.
Exfoliate and Moisturize Before you Wax
So often we just head into our wax appointment not really thinking much about any prep that we should do for our skin prior to the appointment. Experts suggest that you exfoliate your skin before your appointment, this helps to get rid of any dead skin cells. In addition to exfoliating your skin, make sure your skin is well moisturized before heading into your appointment. Why is this so important? Well, when our skin isn’t exfoliated or moisturized, it tends to be pretty dry. When our skin is too dry it can affect the waxing process and actually prevent the wax from fully taking out the hair and instead the hair just breaking – causing you to need to head into the salon more often. Keeping the routine of exfoliating and moisturizing helps to ensure that your skin is hydrated to allow the wax to do its thing much more effectively.
See an Expert
As tempting as it can be to do your waxing yourself at home, it’s really best to see an expert for this type of service. Experts understand how to work with your skin in the best way, and can help to make sure you’re keeping yourself in a solid schedule for your waxing. In general, when you get your hair waxed you will begin to notice a typical cycle that’s established. Keep up with that schedule for the best results long-term and avoid shaving, plucking or threading between to help your hair get into a more consistent schedule.
