When it comes to beauty treatments, there are always a few myths that surround them. In our latest post, we discuss waxing. This long-standing beauty treatment is used by many get rid of unwanted hair, but also comes with its own set of myths that we are here to bust.
Will Waxing Really Hurt?
Whilst it’s true that you will feel something when having a wax, everyone reacts differently; just, because your friend found it really painful, does not mean you will. Additionally, the level of discomfort you feel is also dependant on the technique of the technician - making it important to always book with a credible professional.
Does my Hair Have to be Really Long for Waxing?
One of the most common myths is that your hair must be really long before you can have it waxed. In fact, your hair must only be around a quarter of an inch long to get a smooth finish. If you can’t bear to leave your hair to grow, you can talk to us today about other hair removal options.
Does Waxing Cause Sagging?
In short, no. During the process of waxing, the skin is held taut, so the skin will never be pulled by the wax. In fact, waxing causes exfoliation of the skin, keeping the skin looking and feeling youthful.
Does Waxing Make Your Hair Grow Thicker?
No. Waxing does not make your hair grow back thicker or quicker. In fact, because waxing pulls the hair from the root, it may be more sparse when it grows back, making it feel as though the hair is thinner than it was before.
Can I Have a Wax When I’m Pregnant?
Yes. Waxing is safe for women to have carried out throughout pregnancy. It is often recommended to begin waxing at the start of your pregnancy so that towards the end, the hair is less dense and the waxing is more comfortable.
