7 Things You Need to Know Before You Wax:


We all want silky smooth, soft skin, but who can be bothered shaving every day? Waxing is a great hair removal alternative that keeps the skin hair free for up to four weeks! But waxing can be a real maze if you’re new to it. Like, what’s the best wax for hair removal? Hot wax, warm wax, hard wax, strip wax, cold wax, liquid wax… the list seems to be endless and how do you choose the best at home wax for your needs? And what about the pain that might come with it? Can you even wax if you have sensitive skin? In this blog, we’d like to help break it down for you, so you can decide if waxing can be your new hair removal go-to!

1. First of all, there are basically 2 types of wax for hair removal available for you as an at-home waxer: hard wax and strip wax. Hot wax and warm wax are just different names for hard wax and liquid wax is just strip wax. Strip wax is used for waxing large areas, like legs or arms. You apply it in a thin layer and remove it with a wax strip or it comes as a ready to use strip that you simply warm up between your hands (cold wax). Hard wax is used for delicate areas like your bikini line or under arms. You apply it in a small, thick oval, wait until it sets and remove it without a strip. Choose your product based on the body part you want to wax.



2. Waxing can be painful – you’re removing hair by pulling it from the follicle – but using the right type of wax will minimize the pain significantly. Hard wax grips the hair, but doesn’t stick to the skin. Keep that in mind when you’re waxing your lady bits and under arms! Waxxxxie’s hard wax, Salon Wax, is based off Australia’s best hard wax for professionals.



3. If you’re worried your skin might be too sensitive to wax, we’ve got you covered. Waxxxie products are dermatologically tested and proven gentle on even the most sensitive skin. We suggest always testing a new wax on a small patch of skin.



4. If you’ve previously been shaving, your first wax might not give you the result you were hoping for. This is because only hair that was long enough was removed. At any time, your hair is in 1 of 3 growth phases. It will take 2-3 waxing treatments until all your hair is in the optimal growth phase for waxing, but once you’re there; you’ll be rocking that silky smooth skin!



5. Preparing for your home wax: make sure your hair is at least ¼ inch long and that your skin is clean, dry and completely free of any oils. You don’t need any prepping oils or solutions to start waxing. Practice on larger areas, like your legs, before you wax delicate areas and wax with a friend to wax areas that are hard to reach. 



6. After care is very important! Use a good moisturiser after waxing to help replenish the skin with vital nutrients. Exfoliate your skin every other day from 24 hours after your waxing treatment to make sure the regrowing hair doesn’t get trapped under dead skin cells and causes an ingrown hair.



7. There are also lesser known benefits of waxing: did you know regular waxing will slow down hair growth? If you’re waxing regularly, you’ll notice you get more and more time between waxes. Another great benefit i s that your skin gets thoroughly exfoliated by the wax. This helps prevent ingrown hairs and gives your skin a radiant glow!

Tips For Waxing At Home

Your first time waxing at home can be an intimidating experience.  You haven’t quite figured out where to start and you don’t know what to expect. At Waxxxie, we want to help you have the best possible experience when you’re waxing at home, whether you’re waxing with a body waxing kit or with a face wax.  • Choose the right wax for the job The first and most important thing to do is decide what wax you’re going to be using. For delicate areas we recommend using a hard wax like Waxxxie Salon Wax. Hard wax is the best face wax and the best wax for delicate areas as it releases from the skin easily, while still gripping onto the hair. If you’re waxing large areas of the body, like your arms or legs, the best wax is a strip wax. Strip wax is applied in large sections at once and can be removed with the use of wax strips. Waxxxie Aquawax is the best leg wax, because it is very effective, but still gentle on the skin. • Cover your floor Next thing to do is cover your floo
