Hair Waxing Tips - 6 Ways To Make Waxing A Good Experience


Visitors: 179

If you've decided that waxing is the best way for you to remove your unwanted body hair, then there are a few things you'll want to keep in mind so that you have a pleasant experience. Waxing is not for everyone. So here are a few hair waxing tips to help you make the decision or minimize the side effects:

Use a kit to keep the burn down

It's easy to overheat the wax and burn yourself. Not an especially fun experience if you're removing hair along the bikini line. One way to avoid burning yourself is to get a microwave kit that allows you to control the temperature.

Testing is everything

As everyone is different, you want to make sure you are not allergic or extra sensitive to the wax. Make sure to test a small area first so that you don't have a painful experience. This is especially important if you are doing the bikini line.

Clean works better

Plan on waxing right after you get out of the shower. Your skin will be super clean and the wax will stick better.

Get rid of the wax remains

After waxing, a nice soap and warm water will remove any bits of wax that might be sticking. Pat the area dry and use a powder to remove any stickiness.

Deodorants for bump prevention

Did you know that rolling on a natural deodorant right after waxing will keep the bumps down? However, don't use an anti-perspirant because of the aluminum and other chemicals - especially on the bikini line. You'll want to use natural products that will minimize possible irritation.

Loofah for ingrown hair prevention

Use a loofah to clean the areas you've waxed. This will keep any ingrown hair problems down. Wait at least 48 hours after waxing before using a loofah, however, so that you don't irritate the area.


Waxing can be a great way to remove unwanted hair, especially when you're on vacation. Use these hair waxing tips to have a great experience each and every time.
