no exfoliating for 24 hours, this includes a loofah, body mitt, any scrubs, etc.
EXERCISING (this causes FRICTION, sweating, this is a big no no!
how long does the hair need to be?
The hair needs to be grown for 2 weeks, if you have shaved and your appointment is scheduled the hair needs to grow for 2-3 weeks depending. The length of the hair needs to be about the length of a grain of rice or an eyelash.
will the hair grow back thicker or become darker?
no way! This is a myth. Overtime with waxing and on a regular schedule your hair becomes thinner and more soft. with waxing you are removing the hair from the bulb at a force, which makes new hair growth slow down.
Will I be irritated after?
You will be slightly irritated after, more sensitive than anything. just avoid everything in the post appointment tips! sometimes people have a reaction called a histamine reaction. this is a bump that forms over the hair follicle that looks like a hive. usually this occurs for ppl who have extremely sensitive skin or have a high level of histimine in the body. hydrocortisone is applied if this happens and normally will go down in an hour or two. if it occurs more this time please call me at 989.482.1495!
do you double dip, do you wear gloves?
I DO NOT DOUBLE DIP! GROSS! & YES I WEAR GLOVES! this is OSHA Standard and required by law!
how long does waxing last? and how often should I be waxed?
normally the waxing results last for just about 2 weeks. it really depends on your hair type! with waxing its a process to help keep your hair going on a cycle, the more often you keep it up the better the results. you must not shave in between waxing, this actually ruins the process, it's basically starting all over.
