Benefits of consistency

Benefits of consistency

One of the most often asked question we hear at Absolute Body Wax is “How long will my waxing last?” We normally respond that a wax can last anywhere between 4-6 weeks on average. However, to be more precise, there are a few factors that must be taken into consideration.

First, if you are being waxed it is important to specify how long it has been since you last shaved.  We always tell our clients “the longer – the better”. Some believe that if the hair is long the waxing will be more painful, well it’s simply not true. Longer hair will not influence the sensation; however, it will allow us to give you a better and cleaner waxing service. As we all know hair grows in different cycles.   If you wait just one week after your shave, not all the hairs have grown out yet. Because these hairs are not grown they get left behind during the waxing process and will certainly return sooner. So remember the golden rule: hair must be at least ¼ of an inch long – about as long as a grain of rice.

The second thing to consider is that hair growth is actually influenced during certain times of the year: in the summer, the hair on our head and on all body parts grows faster. The higher temperature causes faster blood circulation and as a result our hair grows longer and at a quicker rate than in other months.

Lastly, it is impossible not to mention your ethnicity and gens. Some of us have thick, lustrous locks, and some of us have fuzzy thin hair. The fact is that if the hair on your body is thin and soft, chances are your waxing will last much longer.

If this is the first waxing service in your life or you are getting it after a long break, chances are it will not last very long.  If you have been shaving instead of getting waxed during this time this causes the hair to become stronger and it looks and feels coarser. As a result, about 25% of the hairs do not get pulled out of the follicles.  Instead they break off much closer to the surface of the skin.  These hairs will return sooner than hairs that were pulled out at the follicles, thus waxing doesn’t last as long as you would expect.

Taking so many factors into consideration, we encourage you to properly prepare for your waxing and to try it at least 3 consecutive times. This way you will see the benefits that waxing can bring to your lifestyle and maintenance.  The effects of waxing gradually build up and the more you do it, the easier it gets.  Not only will it be less painful, but it will last much longer. Don’t base your opinion solely on one service. We can guarantee that your second waxing will be a breeze compared to your first.
