Waxing Myth BUSTED! 💥 A MUST-READ for Anyone Interested or Related to Waxing!


By Jessica S, Wax Specialist at Waxworx



While waxing has been around for centuries, you will be so surprised how many have NEVER even tried waxing because of some silly myth they heard once upon a time. In the era of so much information overload, it can sometimes get misleading and even confusing to get the facts straight.


Waxers and estheticians - you might have heard your clients debate and inquire about these and similar kinds of questions when it comes to waxing.


❌"MAYBE IF YOU TRIM IT, IT WON'T HURT AS MUCH?"❌⁠

❌"MAYBE IF I SHAVE IN BETWEEN SESSIONS, MY WAXER WON'T NOTICE..."❌⁠

❌"DO I REALLY HAVE TO EXFOLIATE?"❌⁠

❌"WHAT IF MY HAIR GROWS BACK THICKER?"❌⁠

❌"I HEARD WAXING HURTS A LOT, IS THAT TRUE?"❌⁠


Seems like there are so many unanswered questions about this form of hair removal. Here are some of the most common questions I encounter among my clients over the years.


1. MYTH: WHAT IF MY HAIR GROWS BACK THICKER? FALSE!


📢⁠ Most frequent clients report that their hair grows back finer, and more sparse and the rate of hair growth is also slowed. This makes waxing less painful and therefore it definitely pays to wax regularly. Waxing can last up to 2-4 weeks depending on your hair growth, and this improves the more regularly you wax.


2. MYTH: I HEARD WAXING HURTS A LOT, IS THAT TRUE? FALSE!


📢 While there is no pain, there is minimal discomfort that is over very quickly, especially with hard wax. Wax Worx Signature Wax is designed to nourish the skin with anti-inflammatory and soothing properties. A perfect solution for sensitive skin providing a comfortable and gentle experience.


3. MYTH: EXFOLIATING IS ESSENTIAL. TRUE!


📢 The skincare that is maintained between sessions such as prepping your skin by cleansing and exfoliating will help to prevent bumps and ingrown hairs. We recommend exfoliating 2-3 times a week with Bushbalm Scrub to help prevent bumps and ingrown hairs. (Products are available in-store.)



4. MYTH: CAN’T GET WAXED ON MY PERIOD. FALSE!


📢 Most waxers are happy to wax you even if you are on your period. Just keep in mind that your skin may be more sensitive than usual due to being on your menstrual cycle.


5. MYTH: WAXING HARMS THE SKIN. FALSE!


📢 Waxing does not cause long-term damage to the skin – it actually exfoliates and benefits the top layer of skin. While waxing may cause some minor side effects such as inflammation they will disappear within hours. After waxing your skin pores are left open and thus need to be kept clean and soothed. We recommend avoiding excessive heat and exercising for at least 24 hours after your wax and using the Waxworx Bush Balm Scrub, Oil, and Serious Serum Ingrown Hair Serum to calm and treat your skin (products are available in-store.)





6. MYTH: YOUR HAIR HAS TO BE A CERTAIN LENGTH. TRUE-ish!


📢 The IDEAL length for hair to be waxed is between ¼” – ½” (the length of a rice grain). Any shorter than this and the wax will struggle to grip the hair which won't leave you with a clean finish. Any longer than ½” tends to cause a little more discomfort and a slightly higher chance of the hair breaking causing some stubble to be left behind. Remember you can always trim your hair before your wax appointment, but if not, don’t sweat it, we will take care of you the best we can.


7. MYTH: MAYBE IF I SHAVE IN BETWEEN SESSIONS, MY WAXER WON'T NOTICE... FALSE!


📢 Trust me - we notice the difference! Shaving in between sessions disrupts your natural hair growth cycle leaving your hair growing at different lengths and thickening the hair which is terrible for waxing. Even just one shave can set back your amazing waxing results.
