How long does my hair have to be to be waxed?
We typically recommend every 3 to 4 weeks, but hair growth varies from person to person. Depending on how fast your hair grows will determine when you will be ready for your next waxing session. Giving your hair time to grow gives the hairs the chance to break through the skin from exfoliation, be the same length and on the same growth schedule. The result is a clean, smooth finish after your next waxing session.
HOT TIP – Our revolutionary Lycon waxes can remove hair as short as 1 - 2mm if you are in desperate need of an 'emergency' wax and need to break your 3 – 4 week routine.
Can I shave in between waxes?
We recommend you do not shave in between waxes because it affects the consistency of your hair growth. Shaving also cuts the hair on the surface causing more of a chance for ingrown hairs.
How do I exfoliate?
Wet the desired area then using a sponge, loofah, scrub, brush or glove, rub in the opposite direction of hair growth. This ensures you do not confuse the hair but instead slough off dead skin cells and allow for the hair to grow in free of confusion, decreasing the chance of ingrown hairs!
How long do I have to wait to exfoliate after waxing?
We recommend you wait 24 hours before exfoliating because your pores have been opened when the hair was removed and your skin could still be sensitive.
What is an ingrown hair?
An ingrown hair is where the hair spirals, curls or grows different directions under the skin. It normally appears as a red or white bump or sometimes just appears under the skin but sideways. Shaving is typically the leading cause of ingrown hairs as it cuts the hair at the surface of the skin but does not remove the root.
Other causes of ingrowns hairs are:
When clothing rubs against the skin after a hair removal service.
Clothing is too tight and rubbing against the skin on a normal basis.
Irritation from a product.
To avoid or minimize ingrown hairs try Prince Reigns Ingrown Hair Serum.
How do I get rid of ingrown hairs?
We recommend exfoliating daily and applying our Prince Reigns Ingrown Hair Serum.
When I wax I get red bumps, is this normal?
You aren't the only one in this boat... red bumps post-waxing is totally normal.
When the hair is removed, it is being removed by the root and often times, the follicle can be so deep that it causes an initial shock, resulting in a red bump. The bumps shouldn't last more than 24 - 48 hours. If you find the bump is more than an initial irritation and continues, appearing more like a rash, contact us.
