❔ Does waxing hurt less the second time?
Emphatically, yes! If you don't wait too long, the second time around the hairs will be shorter, thinner and sparser because they're not fully mature. This makes removal a little less painful, although it still hurts. This second appointment usually takes less time, too. I think the second wax is also more effective than the first. I suspect that there is so much hair being removed the very first time that some of the hairs actually are broken off at the surface rather than removed from the follicle, and so the re-growth is faster.
