There are various methods of hair removal (for both women and men). The razor blade, shaving sticks, depilatory wax, laser or depilatory cream are some of the most used.
Although it is usually a little bit painful, waxing is one of the popular hair removal options as well as one of the most effective and long-lasting practices.
Waxing involves pressing a coat of hot or warm wax to a hairy area. The wax is then pulled quickly in the opposite direction of the hair to remove it directly from its roots and the follicles are left bare.
Waxing is grouped in three types: Professional waxing, Oriental waxing or Cold wax strips.
Professional depilatory Waxing is usually done in a spa or beauty salon by a specialist. It involves the use of hot waxes.
A sugar or rosin based wax is heated and applied on a specific area. When it cools, it becomes very dense and traps the hair inside until it is pulled out together with the wax, leaving that patch of skin bare.
Oriental warm waxing is a practical method suitable for even the most delicate skin types. As it is soluble in water, it is easy to remove residues. It is a more enjoyable form of waxing, as it is done with soothing fragrances and the pleasant sensation of warm wax being applied to your skin.
Cold wax strips
Cold wax strips are ready to use and do not need to be heated. It is a thin layer of wax that is pre-coated over a strip of cotton-like material. These Strips come in pairs sticked together and just need to be separated from one another before use. Apply them directly to the skin and remove them with a quick movement.
