Hard Wax Benefits
Hard wax sticks to the hair, not the skin.
Unlike soft wax, which requires the use of cloth strips, our hard wax is the only material we need to get your skin silky smooth. As it dries, it shrink wraps itself around the hair and transforms into a flexible strip. The wax only attaches to the hair, and not your skin, for an easy & more mellow removal process.
Hard wax hurts less.
Since hard wax doesn’t stick to skin, the removal process is considered less painful. Instead of worrying about rashes, cuts, and irritation to your skin, you will only feel the actual removal of the hair.
Hard wax does not distort hair follicles.
Just like soft wax, hard wax removes the hair from the root, so it takes longer for the hair to grow back compared to shaving. However, unique to hard wax is its ability to remove hair from any angle. With soft wax, if the esthetician pulls the wax off in the same direction as the hair growth, it can distort the hair follicle. But what happens if the hair doesn’t all grow in the same direction? With hard wax, this isn’t a concern, because it can be removed from any angle with no risk of damage to the follicle.
Hard wax is more thorough.
Finally, hard wax can be reapplied to the same area in the same waxing session. With soft wax, if a few hairs are missed, you will generally use tweezers to complete the process. When using hard wax, if there’s a few stray hairs left behind simply apply a thin layer to those areas and peel again with minimal pain and no plucking!
