How Often Should You Wax?

As with any other part of the body, your body needs to be maintained and cared for properly in order to keep it in optimal shape and health. If this is not taken care of then it will result in premature graying or baldness of the hair. The best way to maintain the health and wellness of your hair is to know the answer to the question, “How often should you wax?”. Here are a few facts about your hair that will help you understand this question more thoroughly.

How often should you wax

Every three to five weeks? When it comes to hair removal, most professionals and dermatologists would suggest that you should either get waxing or laser hair removal. Waxing is the process where hot wax is applied on the unwanted hair and pulled off with the help of hot air. Waxing usually takes about an hour, but the actual procedure can take longer depending on the area where you have unwanted hair. Laser hair removal, however, can be done in less than ten minutes.

Two to four weeks? Experts suggest that you should get waxed every two to four weeks depending on the situation. For example, if your hair growth has stopped after a couple of months then you should probably go ahead and get it waxed every two to four weeks. However, if your hair growth has significantly increased then you might want to wax every four to six weeks. For people who have thinning or receding hairlines, however, it is important to make sure that you wax every three to four weeks.

I’ve had a lot of questions lately from people wondering how often should you wax? This is an important question and the answer actually varies from person to person. If you have ingrown hairs then you should probably go ahead and wax every day. It’s important to remember that not all people with unwanted hair are going to be allergic to the substance used in waxing. In most cases, however, people will experience some mild irritation when getting waxed.

How often should you wax? In general you should get it done every three to four weeks but many experts recommend going faster. Basically this refers to how long it should take for your hair to grow from the base of the follicle to the tip of the hair shaft. Usually this takes four to six weeks but again this will vary based on the individual.

So now that you know when to get waxing done it’s time to ask yourself a few other questions. What type of hair does you have? Are you going to continue to grow it or do you plan to trim it in the near future?
