Malaysia is blessed with balmy, sunny and hot-pants weather all year round. Of course, you won't want to step out in your dresses and shorts whilst having a forest of hair on your body, and it's not always good to shave for fear of ingrown hairs, rashes, and shave burns. Lucky for us, there are plenty of other alternatives to shaving, and the most popular hair removal method is waxing.
Waxing removes undesirable hair from the roots for virtually smooth and hair-less skin. Nearly every area of the body can be waxed including eyebrows, face, bikini waxing (private areas), legs, arms, back, abdomen, and even feet. The clean, soft and hair-less result lasts for four to six weeks, depending on your hair growth-cycle and hormone. Here are some of the most common types of waxing that are available in KL.
Strip waxing is also known as soft waxing, accomplished by spreading a very thin layer of wax over the skin. A strip of cloth or heavy-duty paper will then be smoothed over the waxed area and quickly pulled off against the direction of the hair growth to minimise discomfort to the skin.
If you're doing this yourself with store-bought strip waxes, do take great care and follow the exact instruction given by the product's packaging. If not done correctly, the skin could be bruised and even bleed. Ingrown hair is also a common result from waxing the wrong way.
Strip-less wax, or often referred to as hard wax, is much thicker and does not require cloth or paper strips. The wax gets hard as soon as it cools down, therefore removal is made easy by just pulling the wax itself.
This method is more suitable for the ones that have sensitive skin and on the sensitive areas such as under arms or private areas. Hard wax is said to hurt less than strip wax as it does not adhere to the skin as much as the latter, but that entirely depend on your own pain tolerance.
Does waxing hurt? Well, it's not exactly a pleasant feeling having your hair ripped from their roots. But however scary that might sound, the pain is certainly not unbearable as it's been done by so many women (and men too) throughout the generations.
