Get to know the benefits of waxing

You will have less regrowth in between appointments

There is a good reason why regrowth seems slower when you wax: the hair is pulled from the root. In this way, your skin will remain smooth for a period of time that spans from the renewal of the ripped hair follicle to the moment the hair shaft reaches the skin surface. This whole process usually lasts three to four weeks, the average time that goes by between waxing appointments. On the contrary, when you shave, the razor is only cutting the hair shaft on the skin's surface. As you can imagine, this is the same reason why everyone will ask you to stay away from the razor if you've chosen to wax regularly. The rhythm of hair removal with the waxing appointments can be disrupted if you cut hair at the surface. At the end of the day, you will definitely see less regrowth once you start waxing consistently, and this is one of the best advantages you can get from it.

 

Your hair will grow back progressively finer and sparser

This is because waxing tears hair off from the root, which causes the hair follicle to get weaker over time. Weak hair follicles produce finer, sparser hair. However, genetics still determines most of the characteristics of your hair, such as coarseness, color, and growth rate. Do not expect dramatic change from coarse to fine in a couple appointments. It will take some time to see a substantial change.

 

You will have less annoying itching and prickliness

When hair surfaces, is when it starts itching and giving a prickly sensation. When you wax, hair will take longer to reach the surface of the skin; therefore, you will feel smooth for longer. It's also worth mentioning that the prickly feeling of growing hair is more noticeable after shaving because the razor cuts the hair in an angle, which is the same reason why hair seems darker. You can be relieved that, once you start waxing, you'll be less bothered by this prickly sensation.
