For hair removal you can wax or shave, but there are more reasons to wax. A clean shave can sometimes be hard to achieve because there’s always that one area you somehow miss. To avoid the hassle you might as well wax, which can be painful. It’s also quicker and leaves your skin much smoother. Let’s check out some reasons to wax that make it better than shaving.
1. IT LAST LONGER
When you wax it actually removes the entire hair from the root, resulting in hair-free skin for weeks. Shaving only leaves you hair free for a couple of days, because it only cuts the hair down; it doesn’t actually remove it. This is one of the main reasons to wax instead of shave. Your skin will remain smooth and hair free much longer, allowing you to kick those razors to the curb for a while.
It seems like shaving is much faster than waxing, but if you want to avoid nicks and cuts you have to take your time. Waxing can be done quickly without the worry of cutting yourself and leaving scars. If you don’t have time to get waxed at a salon, there are home wax kits that will cost you about that same as for a one time professional waxing.
3.PERMANENT HAIR REMOVAL
If you wax long enough you will notice that your hair grows back, not only slower, but much thinner and finer. Waxing removes the entire hair not just part of it. This weakens your hair follicles and results in permanent damage to the follicle. This sounds bad but it’s actually good for areas that you don’t want hair. After waxing for so long, you won’t have to worry about hair growth anymore.
Shaving can cause razor bumps and rashes that look bad, often hurt and of course itch. If done correctly, waxing shouldn’t hurt too much, and will leave your skin smooth without irritation. If you have sensitive skin, you may turn a little red, but not for long.
