Shaving vs Waxing
This is a topic that certainly needs no introduction. Hair removal is something every woman has to deal with at some time or another. As a result, there are as many opinions about how it should be done as there are women in the world. If you find you’re at a loss, then let us help you out.
The method of shaving uses a blade (commonly a razor) to cut the hair right where it leaves the skin. This means that hair will no longer be visible. However, this method has to be repeated according to how quickly your hair grows, which can be as often as every 2-4 days.
In the case of waxing, you’re off to a better start. With warm wax applied to the skin it ensures that the hair, including the root, is removed. Therefore, regrowth is much slower at 1-2 weeks. This makes waxing a winner in our book. But if you need more convincing, allow us to tell you why…
Is waxing worth it?
If you consider the quick comparison we made above, then the short answer is yes. Waxing is quick, affordable, and a long-lasting hair removal solution. But what are the other benefits you can expect from a good wax session?
No skin damage - Shaving is a fast ticket to possible nicks and cuts, whereas with waxing you don’t have to worry about any of those. No more unwanted scars to go with your unwanted hair.
Long-lasting- Because waxing targets the hair roots, it means you won’t have to wax as often as you’ll have to shave. The regrowth is much slower, and generally the new hair is finer every time.
Healthy regrowth - As mentioned above, after waxing your hair grows back finely. With shaving, you always get fast regrowth with a rough and tough looking hair shaft. This is never the case with waxing.
Smooth finish - Because of the gradual, fine regrowth, your skin is left looking and feeling smoother than if you were to shave. This makes waxing a great approach for sensitive skin that’s prone to irritation. No rashes, just beautifully smooth skin.
Itch-free experience - When you follow the process correctly, waxing will never leave your skin feeling itchy and irritated. After shaving, this is almost always the case. However, thanks to slow growth and finer hairs, waxing leaves your skin feeling fresh.
Fast process, best results - Waxing is a quick and convenient hair removal solution. You don’t have any of the bother (and dangers) involved with shaving and you’re guaranteed a perfect finish every time.
