My body hair is none of your beeswax.

Having body hair can be anxiety-inducing, especially when you’re wearing sleeveless shirts, mini skirts, or bikinis. And while it’s totally fine and natural to rock your body hair, at the end of the day, it’s also a personal choice.

And because it’s always up to you on whether or not you want to wax off those pesky hairs or flaunt it like you just don’t care, here are some things you need to know about waxing before you decide.

Is Waxing Effective?

Okay, so you probably know what waxing is.

It’s a semi-permanent way of removing hair from the root. But what you didn’t know is that it takes 2 to 6 weeks for the hair to grow back after waxing it off, which means you won’t have to worry about having hair down there during your week-long beach trip. It also beats the hassle of having to shave every so often.

Hot Wax vs. Cold Wax

There are two types of wax: Hot and Cold. The obvious difference between the two is the temperature of the wax. But that’s not all.

Hot wax is warmed and melted in a professional wax warmer and is spread evenly and precisely on your target areas. You’ll also most likely find spas and waxing salons using this method.

And if you’re more familiar with waxing at home, you’re probably using cold wax since they’re pre-applied on strips and as the name suggests, don’t require any heat source. 

Which Method is More Effective?

They are both equally effective methods. However, cold wax is perfect for at-home remedies since it’s ready-to-use and requires minimal preparation. It’s also a better waxing alternative for people who are sensitive to heat.

In terms of precision, hot wax is much more effective. You can shape and spread the wax in whichever way you want in order to get to the nooks and crannies of your target areas. Plus, it’s best for waxing areas with coarse hair and even shorter hair.

Is Hot Wax safe?

Hot wax is definitely much safer if you visit a professional esthetician. During your waxing session, the esthetician will make sure the temperature of the wax is right, precisely spread the wax onto your target areas, make sure to wax your hair off properly, apply the proper after-care products, and teach you the after-care procedures in order to prevent infections.
