Waxing In Birmingham? Here Are 3 Reasons Sugaring Is Better

Waxing Birmingham, ALDid you know that a basic Yelp search will pull up over a hundred results for waxing in Birmingham? And why not? Shaving is the worst! Shaving simply takes forever and the hair grows back so fast. Not to mention all of the missed patches of hair and the common experience of using the same blade until it essentially just combs your leg hair.

Still Waxing? It’s Time to Stop!

Due to the annoyance and time drain associated with shaving, many people turned to waxing in Birmingham as their ultimate source of hair removal. With hot wax you get something else – pain! Putting hot wax on your skin and having the strips removed in the opposite direction of hair growth is simply not fun. Fortunately, there is a better and less painful way to remove unwanted hair – sugaring!

3 Reasons Why Sugaring is Better than Waxing

#1. Waxing is way more painful than sugaring!

Waxing products are made of resins which adhere to skin cells. Because wax sticks to any surface it is applied to, pulling it away causes unwarranted pain, redness, and tenderness for hours or even days after the procedure. Sugaring products never adhere to live skin cells. Therefore, when it is removed it only gently exfoliates dead skin cells, leaving behind silky smooth skin. Plus, since sugaring paste is all natural and water soluble it can be easily rinsed away if needed.  The result? Significantly less pain and redness and reduced hair growth.

#2: Less hair growth needed!

For a successful waxing treatment, hair needs to be at least 1/4 inch long, or 2 – 3 weeks growth after shaving. Can you imagine going two to three weeks without shaving? Ugh. On the other hand, sugaring hair removal can be done with hair that’s 1/16 inch long (that’s about 4 – 7 days growth after shaving)! Plus, sugaring lubricates the hair follicle, which makes it more likely to remove the entire hair and root instead of breaking it near the surface. Less breakage means more consistent hair growth, which means you won’t start growing in random patches of hair before your next scheduled sugaring treatment.

#3: Its all-natural!

Sugaring paste is generally made from a few basic ingredients, including sugar, water, and lemon juice (some formulas also contain moisturizers or glycerin). This all-natural makeup makes the treatment safe for both your body and the environment. Furthermore, it is ideal for those with sensitive, allergy-prone skin. It’s no competition in our book! Sugaring is better than waxing on all accounts, and L.A. Bikini is Birmingham’s only exclusive provider of sugaring.
