Wax On, Wax Off: Get Your Winter Wax On

To be or not to be…waxed during the winter months? Any veteran waxer will tell you, “The more you do it, the less it grows!” This is because waxing pulls the hair out from the follicle which weakens hair growth by damaging the hair follicle. This is what we want!

Before you consider cutting back on your wax routine, think about this: everything you’ve worked for all summer and fall will be lost once you let those hair follicles regain strength with continued growth. Routinely disrupting the growth process over time will lessen hair regrowth! Keep up the good work through the winter and next summer you will be glad you did.

Aside from stunting hair growth, we know the number one reason for maintaining a steady wax schedule is for our own self-assurance. Having clean lines, hairless skin and the smooth feel that comes with waxing will keep you confident in your own skin. If you haven’t felt the glow of a fresh wax, you are missing out on one simple way to build your self-confidence! Don’t forget, it can take a few sessions before you clear your skin of ingrown hairs and other results of shaving and tweezing. Keeping a regular wax schedule all year around will eliminate these flare ups, so don’t fret!
