Did you know that the better you are about staying on a consistent wax schedule (every 4-5 weeks) the better results you’ll get over time? Why is that? 🧐
Here’s why: when we wax, we are completely removing every hair, including the root, leaving an empty follicle. That means that every single follicle is going to have to produce a brand new baby hair.
Which is great! 🙌🏼 Brand new baby hairs are thinner, softer, and finer than old hairs that have been connected to a blood supply for weeks on end. (This is also why your second wax doesn’t hurt as badly as the first – brand new baby hairs slide out of the skin more easily than dense old hairs!).
BUT if you go too long between waxes (more than 4-5 weeks) those hairs are no longer soft, fine new hairs. The longer you let them stay attached to a blood supply within the follicle, the more uncomfortable they’re going to be to remove at your next appointment. 😬
4 weeks is also the average length of a growth cycle in body hair, which means that regularly removing all the hairs in four week intervals will encourage all the follicles to produce a new hair at the same time, which then means we’ll be able to remove more of your hair at your appointment, leaving you with smoother results. 💃🏻
So, the moral of the story? Wax every four weeks, don’t shave in between, and never have to worry about itchy dark stubble ever again ✨
