This new flexible hot wax system is revolutionary and unlike other hot wax, because it is flexible it does not crack or break, the wax is applied and as it dries it shrinks around the hair and lifts it up from the follicle, when it sets it is simply peeled off and that's it your done!, it is great for getting to grips with short stubborn hair, and has a much lower melting point than other hot waxes so it is especially good for anyone with the most sensitive of skin. The cleanser contains chamomile for its antiseptic and disinfectant properties, Lavender for its anti inflammatory soothing and calming qualities, the prewax oil creates a protective barrier preparing the skin for waxing and also contains a lightweight Lavender base oil for a calming and soothing treatment, the post wax oil is a heavy weight Lavender based oil which soothes and moisturises as well as leaving a smooth finish and helps to prevent in growing hairs in between waxes.
There are 2 types of wax - Warm wax which is sometimes referred to as strip waxing, this wax is warm and is spread on your skin in the direction the hair is growing, a waxing strip is placed on top and firmly pressed down, this is then removed by pulling the strip in the opposite direction of the hair growth, this is perfect for leg waxing, arm waxing, back waxing, and brows.
Then there is Hot wax, this is applied against the hair growth, it is left to cool for a minute then the end is flicked up and the wax removed again in the opposite direction of the hair growth, this more suited for sensitive areas and skin it is best on areas like bikini, underarm, lip and chin.
Waxing is a semi-permanent method of hair removal; it removes the hair from the root. New hairs will not grow back on previously waxed areas for 2 to 6 weeks.
Sometimes if it is your first wax then you may feel a slight discomfort but this will only last a few seconds, once you have been waxed the hair weakens so each time it becomes more comfortable. For best results and a virtually pain free wax we recommend a regular wax of every 4 weeks, it all depends on how fast your hair grows. Our recommendation is to exfoliate areas like legs, arms, armpits regularly in between waxes and the run up to your next wax, keep your skin well moisturised before and after waxing. We also advise to avoid being waxed in the run up to your period as you may be more sensitive, and avoid caffeine on the day of your wax!
