Before Your Wax…
So you’ve booked a wax. Here’s a couple of tips to lessen the pain and increase the longevity of the hair free feeling.
Make sure your hair is long enough to remove completely from the roots. It should be at least 0.5 centimetres. If you’ve shaved the area within the last few weeks it might take a couple of waxes to get your hair into a cycle of growth that allows the most effective wax finish that lasts.
After Your Wax…
Immediately after your wax
It’s normal immediately after your wax for a little bit of redness and a prickly heat type rash to appear. This should disappear after a few hours and is normally due to a histamine reaction. Waxing removes the hair at the root, it’s important that you keep the area clean and bacteria free. This means:
- No sunbathing for at least 12 hours, have your waxing done at least the day before you go on holiday.
- No swimming in a chlorinated pool, spa baths or saunas for 24 hours
- Avoid applying any topical lotions for at least 12 hours. Fragrances and other lubricants can cause a burning sensation & irritate the the pores.
- Also avoid touching the waxed area to ensure it remains bacteria free, it can feel sticky as some wax might be left over, try not to touch it.
- You can use a tea tree oil based product to apply to the area for it’s anti-bacterial qualities and to help remove the any left over wax.
- Waxing is not recommended within 24 hours before or after any other heat treatment e.g. steam, sauna, sunbed, sunbathing, swimming, exercise or self tanning application.
3-10 Days after waxing
As your skin closes over the follicles, the next consideration is to ensure you prevent ingrown hairs. This is when new, often softer hair can get trapped under the skin.
Use a soft brush or exfoliating glove to gently buff the area every 2-3 days. This is particularly important after about day 3 through to about the 10 day mark. It doesn’t need to be hard scrubbing, just a gentle exfoliation.
We also sell a waxing after care lotion, A gentle, soothing solution for home care to help prevent and treat ingrown hairs.
How long will your wax last?
If you’re a first-time or occasional waxer you will likely notice some new hair growth within 2-3 weeks due to the naturally staggered hair growth cycle. This part of regrowth will be sparse, about one-third of the hair normally present. Soon after the remaining hair will begin growing in.
Regular waxing will leave the area hair free for 3 – 6 weeks. Over time the density of hair in the waxed area may start to decrease as well.
