Have you tried waxing? If yes, what do you think about before a wax? Over the years, waxing has become most ladies favorite way of removing unwanted hairs on their body surface. When you wax it doesn’t just take long for the hair to grow back again but when it comes out the hair looks and feels less coarse. If you would be waxing for the first time then we would like to share with you ways to prepare before a wax session. Visit our bar in lagos to get the best wax session.

Exfoliation


First on the list is exfoliation. We are advised to exfoliate at least twice a week to get a clearer skin but exfoliating before a wax is equally good. Two days before you wax, gently exfoliate with a mild scrub, brush, mitt, or loofah to remove dead skin cells that surround the hair follicles.
This process helps loosen ingrown hair and improves waxing results.

No Dirt


Start off your waxing session with a freshly washed skin. Use a mild soap to remove any germs, particles, sweat, oil or makeup residues. This equally helps to prevent infection of the exposed pores right after exfoliating.

Avoid Wet Skin

Before your wax session, dry the area thoroughly because wax does not adhere to wet surfaces. If you are sweating, add a little talcum powder. This helps sop up moisture from sweat or nervousness.

Cut hair to a Particular Length


Though your hair needs to be at least a quarter-inch to be waxed, hair that’s too long can make waxing more painful.
It is recommended to cut hair to three-fourths of an inch if it’s longer.
