Do’s and Dont’s
A Few Q&A’s About Waxing
Get some basic information about do’s and don’ts both for your pre-and-post waxing experience!
Do make sure the hair is long enough to be waxed. The hair must be a quarter of an inch to a half an inch long, but whose measuring?! Usually perfect length is about 2 and a half weeks post shave.
Do trim (with scissors, not a trimmer) if the hair is too long. Just remember if you can put it in a pony tail, it’s too long.
Do feel free to take Advil of Ibuprofen 30-45 mins before your waxing service.
Do double check you are not on any medication that would thin the skin.
Don’t cancel your appointment if you are on your period. If you are comfortable being waxed at this time, so are we.
Exfoliating the waxed area will be important when the hair is beginning to grow back, but be sure to wait AT LEAST 3-4 days post waxing before exfoliating the area.
If there is any discomfort or redness feel free to use ice or any type of calming/hydrating products.
Enjoy your new freshly waxed area without too much touching (just to make sure oils and bacterial stay away).
Don’t do anything that would bring bacteria to the area at least 24 hours after a service. Some examples include: working out, sex, swimming in a public pool or jacuzzi, and tanning.
Don’t shave in between waxing appointments. This will make the hair growth uneven and harder to wax the next service.
