Tip 1: Ditch the razor
Making sure to keep your skin moisturized is another necessity. This also adds as a back-up incase you haven't been as diligent about your water intake lately. Who doesn't love healthy, hydrated skin?
Tip 4: Moisturize
Dry, winter hair is more likely to break when waxing, causing it to grow back faster and thicker. The good news is, this is preventable! Make sure you are drinking enough water throughout the cold, dry months to keep your skin healthy and hydrated.
Hair tends to grow faster in the summer because the heat and humidity keep the pores open and promote hair growth, but in Winter, the pores constrict which slows down the effect of hair growth. Yes, we're unfortunately telling you that we recommend waiting longer between waxes in the winter (between 5 and 6 weeks), but we pinky swear it's for your own good.
Tip 2: Length matters, not time
Tip 5: Exfoliate
Refraining from shaving between services is crucial YEAR ROUND! Shaving is counterproductive to the effort that waxing is trying to make by weakening your hair follicle. Shaving between appointments also makes the next service more painful.
