Being on the Beauty business, I have always preferred and recommended Waxing over any other hair removal method. However, on this post I would like to share with you some Pros and Cons about Waxing and Shaving without being biased – maybe just a little.
Shaving removes hair at the skin surface. This quick and easy method can be easily done at home. However, you must make sure to replace the blades every 3 weeks; bacteria and humidity usually sticks to the blade and could be harsh on the skin. Hair usually grows back within a few days and ingrown hair it’s also experienced more often. This method could be a good option for people that doesn’t have a lot of hair, or has very fine, light hair. Remember to be extra cautious when using razors!
Waxing, on the other hand, removes hair from root. Allowing it to grow back within a couple of weeks or more, depending on the person. Some people may be scared of the potential pain, however, if you have the desired length (ideally 1cm) and exfoliate your skin before your appointment; it should make it easier for the hair to exit. The best part about waxing? Your hair only gets thiner with every appointment. This method is a great option for people with thick hair, fine hair, stubborn hair – basically all types of hair! What we love about waxing is that it gives you the confidence of leaving the Spa with no hair and smooth skin.
Whether If you Shave or Wax just make sure you are taking care of your skin before and after. Hair it’s still part of your body and we should be gentle when taking it off. Take a look here for some Pre-waxing Tips!
