FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ) - WAXING


What kind of wax do you use?
Here at Lux beauty room we use Gigi Honee Wax. This all natural honey wax instantly leaves skin smooth and free of hair and is gentle enough for delicate areas.

How long, or short, should my hair be for waxing?
The hair should be at least 1/4-inch to 1/2-inch for best results. Which means growing the hair out for 7-14 days, depending on how fast your hair grows. Once the hair becomes finer it can be waxed at a shorter length. 

It may take up to three waxing treatments to achieve smooth skin due to the fact that hair grows in stages and all of your hair is never at the same stage. It is very important to avoid shaving between waxing appointments, as this will interrupt the process and stimulate the hair growth again.

How often should I get my waxing treatment?
Every four weeks. Regular waxing is essential. The skin will be less sensitive if waxing is done every 4 weeks. Over time, with regular waxing, the hair follicle will have less and less of a grip on the hair to be pulled and the hairs will come out more easily. Another reason to wax frequently is that you may even experience less hair growth over time. 

Will waxing make my hair grow back thicker/stronger/darker?
Absolutely not. Waxing does not cause you to grow more hair follicles. In fact, if you become a regular waxer, you will notice that your hair will become quite sparse and not as coarse.

When hair is shaved, it is cut off at the thick part of the hair, which is why you can feel stubble the next day. A properly waxed hair is removed from the root, and when the hair starts to grow back it is a new hair, very fine at the tip, so no stubble.

The only things known to stimulate hair growth are hormones: natural or artificial.
