The Hair Growth Cycle Explained

Hands up who only gets waxed for going on holiday?

Waxing is a great way to stay hair free for longer and is the ideal hair removal option for remaining fuzz free during your holiday. But did you know that to get the best results from your wax you need to be planning ahead? It takes around 3 waxing sessions (approximately 4 weeks apart) to get the best results – whereby you have a longer period of time with no visible hair regrowth.  

The reason for this is you have THOUSANDS of individual hairs on any area of your body. If you are not a regular waxer each of these little hairs will be at different growth stages at your first appointment; so although waxing removes the hairs by the root there will be lots of hairs that are too short to be removed from the root or may still be underneath the skin’s surface just waiting to poke through in the next few days.

The benefit of consistent regular waxing means that over time the hair growth cycle becomes synchronised, meaning all or most of the hairs are at the same stage of growth. This means they all grow together and get removed together! Once a hair is removed by the root it will be a few weeks before a new hair is formed and starts to appear.

This is what you want for your pre-holiday wax! Hair free skin that will remain hair free for longer than your holiday. No horrible shaving stubble either!

So if you are thinking of getting a holiday wax, get your diary out and start planning your waxing schedule to ensure the longest lasting results possible.
