Why You Should Consider Waxing Over Shaving?

Waxing is the preferred method of hair removal in salons across the world because it lasts longer than shaving or epilating. When done correctly, waxing can remove all of the hair from one area at once (including any fine hair without damaging your skin like electrolysis or laser hair removal can do. Plus, unlike shaving or epilating which require multiple sessions per year, a single wax session will last anywhere from 4-6 weeks depending on how fast your

Shaving is the most common form of hair removal for women and men worldwide. It’s cheap, easy to do at home, and can be done in a matter of minutes. However, there are several drawbacks associated with shaving that makes waxing the way to go when it comes to hair removal. Here’s why:

Waxing lasts longer than shaving. 


The average person only shaves about once a week—and that means you have to wait for your hair to grow back before you can get rid of it again. But with waxing, you can keep your skin smooth for up to six weeks! That’s two whole months of smooth skin without having to do anything!

Waxing is less painful than shaving. 

If you’ve ever tried shaving with an electric razor or disposable razor before (and who hasn’t?), then you know how painful the process can be. Waxing uses hot wax to remove hair from the root and leaves your skin feeling smoother and more moisturized than ever before.

You don’t have to worry about ingrown hairs or razor bumps with waxing.


If you shave often enough, there’s a good chance that you’ve experienced these issues before—and they are NOT fun! But with waxing, they just don’t happen as often because the wax pulls the hairs out by their roots instead of cutting them off at the surface of your skin like razors do. This means that each time you get waxed, it’ll be less likely for those pesky little bumps to appear again later on down the road!

Waxing does not cause irritation and redness.


Shaving can cause ingrown hairs and razor burns. Ingrown hairs are small, hard bumps that occur when hairs grow back into your skin. Razor burn is an irritation on the skin caused by shaving with a dull razor or one that hasn’t been cleaned thoroughly. Both of these can lead to permanent scarring if not treated properly, so it’s important to keep your skin healthy while regrowing your hair.

Cost savings. 

In addition to not needing to buy disposable razors or replacement blades all the time—which can add up!—you also don’t need to buy expensive creams and lotions or exfoliants to keep your skin looking fresh. Waxing is a one-time purchase that lasts for months at a time.

Better skin health. 


Because waxing removes all the hair from the root, it also helps prevent ingrown hairs and razor bumps. This is something most people with sensitive skin will appreciate! It can even help reduce acne breakouts. It removes oil trapped under the surface of your skin by unclogging pores. This is why it’s recommended for people who suffer from acne.

Waxing is less time-consuming. 


Shaving can take forever, and then you have to deal with the whole drying process afterward. With waxing, however, once you’ve got it done, you’re done! No more maintenance or upkeep for another few weeks until your next appointment. 

In most cases, waxing is ideal. Waxing removes everything in one fell swoop, while shaving only gets the hair that you’re able to see from above. If you like your current method of grooming, that’s fine, but if you want a simpler solution and fewer ingrown hairs, then waxing could be for you.
