With the summer fast approaching its time to start thinking about that unwanted, stubborn hair
Whilst many people love to shave and go with a razor, waxing leaves your skin feeling smoother for longer… perfect for those longer summer days.
We want to help destroy some of those waxing myths and answer some of the most asked questions when it comes to waxing.
Does waxing make your hair grow back, thicker, faster and blacker?
Nope! Waxing makes your hair grow back slower as it removes the hair from the root.
Will it hurt me?
We aren’t going to lie to you, there may be some discomfort however everyone has a different pain tolerance which means everyone will have a different experience. At The Garden Spa we help reduce the pain and redness with a pre cleanse and after oil to help the hair out and minimise your discomfort.
How do I prepare?
We always recommend your hair is at least a quarter of an inch long so the wax can grip onto something and remove the hair from the root.
You can also exfoliate your skin before the treatment but make sure you don’t do this on the day of your appointment!
What should I wear?
Let your skin breathe before and after! Loose clothing is essential when getting a wax.
Will I go red and irritated after?
Our hot wax is used for sensitive areas or on sensitive skin. It gives a better finish and a less painful wax and combined with our aftercare oil you’ll have minimal redness on the skin.
However we always recommend if you’re going away or going for a swim (ie showing the area you have had waxed) that you make your appointment at least 24hrs before.
