It has to be said that waxing is a painful experience. The benefits for all that pain however (and it's really not that bad) are the long-lasting results. You are likely to stay hair-free for weeks at a time.
Waxing is most painful the first few time you have it done as this is when the hair follicles are strongest. Considering this, it is worthwhile having your first few waxes done by a professional. Once you have a few waxes under your belt, it will probably be just as effective, but a lot cheaper, to make use of one of the wax at home kits that are now readily available online or in stores.
Unfortunately, this is limited to the hair on your head, which we all know is not the only area of your body that grows hair. Unsightly, unmanageable hair appears on everything from your arms to legs, your underarms, the sides of your face, back and even your upper lip. For some women, this isn't an issue, as the hair appears like peach fuzz, barely visible on the skin. For others, thicker, darker hair grows in, encroaching on areas we'd prefer to remain hairless. Hair removal is purely cosmetic as hair growth is natural and poses no health risks, but women everywhere still make valiant attempts to stay hair-free. There are many methods to hair removal with corresponding pros and cons to each, so when choosing a method that works for you, get familiar with your options.
It allows you to remove a large amount of hair at a time and gives you long-lasting results, with hair re-growth occurring two to six weeks after treatment. Many women prefer waxing areas of the body that they'd prefer not take a razor to or areas that they would rather remain hair-free for longer, such as the upper lip or bikini area. The downside to waxing is, as we all know, the pain factor. Ingrown hairs are common and even bleeding can occur. Though strips of hot wax being pulled off your skin is not a pleasant experience, women still undergo this method of hair removal pretty regularly.
Many consider this method painful as it plucks a large area of hair at a time, but because it gets the job done faster, it is grown in popularity.
If going pain-free is an absolute must for you then consider no!no!'s method of pulsing heat. I have to admit, when I heard about this product, I was a bit skeptical. It claims to crystallize the hair down to the root upon contact, which you then buffer off to create a smooth hairless surface. Life would be so much easier if we just embraced a hairy lifestyle, but alas, for many women and myself, we'd rather keep up the fight if it means we get silky.
