Is the Same Amount of Hair Growth Required for Sugaring and Waxing?

Let us begin by describing the differences between the two techniques. Waxing is going to use a resin-based solution that extracts hair out from its root and is available in the hard or soft form. The soft form is going to always require a strip. It might already come attached to the strip or be applied using an applicator then the strip is put on top. Hard wax always is going to be applied warm and is taken off with the fingers or hands, without any need for a strip.


 With waxing, you usually need ¼-inch length of hair for the solution to grab onto, as well as successfully extract it. It’ll depend on the type of wax that is being used, the kind of hair, as well as how skilled the operator is- yet occasionally hair that is a little shorter than ¼” may be removed.


 The actual sugaring is comprised of natural ingredients such as lemon juice, water, as well as sugar. There are 2 types (gel and paste), and when made of the exact same recipe, they are going to require two various hair lengths.


 The gel is warmed to precisely the same consistency as soft wax. It also is applied with the direction of hair growth, as well as removed against it similar to soft wax. It is going to require strips to zip the product off. Therefore, you still have to have around ¼-inch of length for the sugaring product to grab onto it.


 The paste is the traditional method that’s a lot thicker and is not all that warm (around room temperature). It’ll require more skill to utilize than the gel and due to it being applied against the direction of hair growth it is taken off in the direction that it grows using the hands.

 Using this technique, it is possible to remove hair as short as 1/16-inch.

 Therefore, the sugaring paste is able to remove shorter hair than waxing. However, even if you opt for the gel, the majority of folks say it is less painful and produces less irritation and redness over waxing.

 Problems with Hair Removal

 Even if you have the minimal quantity of hair growth, it’s still possible to experience a few challenges with hair removal.

 For instance, pre-made wax strips are known for leaving hair behind. In addition, soft wax may disappoint. If the skin is not correctly prepped, if the wax is not hot enough or applied too thick, stragglers might remain. Additionally, hard wax takes more practice to get down as it has to be placed on thicker and be permitted to cool sufficiently before removing.

 Sugaring also may not be as sweet of a hair removal procedure as you would like. Not cooking the sugar product just right, the humidity, as well as removing the strip quickly enough all play a part in obtaining silky smooth skin.
