​Waxing vs. Shaving: Which Is Better?

Dealing with unwanted hair is something most people don’t even want to deal with! Some methods which people choose to go through could end up being super uncomfortable and leave an irritation on the skin no one could ignore. When it comes to hair removal, professional wax treatments are a favored option among other hair removal treatments. Shaving is one of the methods used to remove hair and has stayed relevant due to its accessibility. Another way people attempt to remove unwanted hair is with homemade waxes, but most people just resort to shaving because it’s so quick and easy. Although homemade waxes are popular, it is always recommended to have the treatment done by a professional who is using professional wax formulas.

Waxing or Shaving?

Both waxing and shaving follow different procedures during their treatment. When waxing, the hair is ripped off from the follicle after placing the wax over the skin, in shaving, a razor is slid down the skin to cut off the visible hairs on the skin. For a lot of people, waxing is their preferred hair removal method. Especially for sensitive areas like the bikini area and the underarms. Facial waxing is also a popular trend in the beauty industry because it helps clients prevent their facial hair from growing back too thick.

When shaving fewer sensitive areas of the body like legs or arms or back, both shaving and waxing are popular and effective choices. Both procedures can remove unwanted body hair from large areas quickly and effectively. Regardless of the person’s preference, it really depends on how fast it grows back and how it makes your skin feel and look after.

How Fast Does the Hair Grown Back?

When waxing, it rips the hair off directly from the root. It leaves the follicles bare and stripped, extending the time that goes by before the hair growing back starts to become visible. It’s an advantage to wax because all the hair in one area starts going through the same regrowth cycle, making it easier for the client to organize themselves and see when to plan another hair removal appointment.
