Waxing removes hair from the root unlike with shaving the hair is cut at surface and for some people will begin to grow back within hours of shaving.
Do not put body lotion on the day of waxing and after also.
Soft wax is removed with a waxing strip or muslin strip. Hard wax is removed without strips.
Waxing is uncomfortable because the hair is being pulled from the root.
Although the pain does subside as soon as the wax is over, it can remain sensitive, which is why for the next 24-48 hours no scrubs or scrubbing, extremely hot water, sunbathing and direct sun. After 48 hours have passed or the sensitivity has passed you can begin to exfoliate to remove dead skin so pores don't become clogged, causing ingrown hairs and bumps.
To treat redness apply a small amount of cortisone cream or Polysporin (Not Neosporin) from drugstore.
Ingrown hairs are hairs that have curled around and grown back into your skin instead of rising up from it.
A skincare solution can be purchased to help prevent ingrown hairs from forming.
If you are not prone to ingrowns than you have nothing to worry about!
After waxing try not to keep rubbing your hands on the waxed area without washing them this will help in preventing what is known as a Bacterial Reaction from dirty and sweaty hands.
You should also refrain from sweating which exercising, swimming, tanning and sunbathing after waxing.
Sometimes clients can have an Allergic breakout reaction the main reason for this is because the hair is seated on the nerve and when removed, it stimulates the bodies defenses system . I advise using a Cortisone Cream for relief.
Please refrain from sex for 24-48 hours if possible!
