Many hair removal methods are painful, time consuming, expensive, and stressful. The good news is there is a natural hair removal method that is a step above shaving or waxing. This technique is referred to as sugaring and has become the first choice for natural hair removal for numerous individuals. Sugaring is different from traditional waxing and no paper strips are necessary.
The aesthetician smooths the mixture — that contains no chemical additives — onto the skin. The application is applied opposite the growth of hair. After a few seconds, the mixture will begin to cool and become a little harder. The paste is then flicked off in the same direction the hair is growing. This prevents breakage and ensures the hair remains intact. When traditional waxing is used, the hair often breaks at the root and fifteen to thirty percent of the hair is left in the skin. Sugaring is gentler and the hair grows back softer and slower.
There are no fragrances, chemicals or coloring involved in this natural hair removal method. This makes it a good option for extremely sensitive skin because it is natural and hypoallergenic. The application of the sugaring paste is at body temperature. Water can remove the paste with ease. Chemical solvents are required for wax because of the resin and associated residues.
The sugar paste works well almost anywhere on the body including the bikini area, arms, underarms, lips, and legs, provided there is enough hair length to pull out. The process does require hair that is long enough, similar to waxing treatments.
The Benefits of Sugaring
The best benefit of sugaring is the hair grows back softer and slower. The more often the process is used, the less concerns there will be regarding unwanted hair. This is because the growth of hair is in cycles. The more often the hair is removed during a growth cycle, the more time it will require to grow back. Regular treatments will make the hair thinner, finer and eventually nearly invisible.
More treatments are usually necessary when the hair is dark and thick as opposed to light, fine hair. The aesthetician at Jon Ric International Health and Wellness in Edmond, OK can inform you how often you will need sugaring. The best part is the more treatments you receive, the less you will need.
