Advice for maintenance after your hair removal

When you’re between WAXES…

DO wait four to six weeks between wax appointments. Everyone’s hair grows at different speeds and lengths, plus it tends to speed up during the summer months.

DON’T participate in any vigorous exercise within 12 hours of your treatment. This is because mixing heat and sweat on the waxed area can result in ingrown hairs.

DO apply tea-tree oil to ingrown hairs, as it dries out the infection. For more serious irritation, seek professional advice.

DON’T ever pick at an ingrown hair. This includes digging with fingers, tweezers or pins – all are a big beauty no-no.

DO maintain a good exfoliation regime. This means a gentle scrub once or twice a week to keep ingrown hairs at bay.

DON’T forget moisturiser. Apply product after showering to keep your skin soft.

When you’re between BRAZILIANS…

How long does my hair need to be before it can be waxed?

To ensure great results, your hair can’t be too short or too long.  Between one to two centimetres is ideal.

So, I won’t get a better wax if my hair is longer?

In a word, no. If the hair is too long, there is the possibility of it snapping during the waxing process, rather than coming out at the root.

Can I trim my hair?

“Of course”, ask your technician for her preferred length.

What can I do if my hair is irritating me before a wax?

You just have to ride it out and let the hair grow. The longer it gets, the less prickly it becomes.
