Waxing is better than shaving for many reasons and those of you who currently wax on a regular basis will agree. Everyone needs a quick and reliable solution for removing body and facial hair, and waxing is definitely the best way.
If you’re not already convinced, here are 7 ways waxing is better than shaving:
1. No razor burn
Not only are razor burns painful and itchy, but it also looks terrible. No one wants to put on a bikini or a tank top with red, bumpy razor burn on their bikini line or underarms. Waxing is better than shaving because it eliminates razor burn completely.
2. Waxing saves time
If you wake up late and don’t have time to shave your legs, you might have to rethink your entire outfit for the day. But if you’ve had your legs waxed, it doesn’t matter whether you have time or not. Waxing is better than shaving as it saves you a ton of time on a daily basis. Since shaving has to be done on a day-to-day basis, we all spend a lot of extra time in the shower each day. Waxing eliminates this time-consuming step in our daily routines as waxing is only required every couple of weeks.
3. Waxing reduces hair growth
If you repeatedly wax an area of the body, over time the hair growth will become less. This is due to hair papilla damage which is caused by waxing. The hair papilla is responsible for supplying nutrients to the hair in order for it to grow. Without the papilla, the hair can’t grow.
4. Hair grows back softer
When you shave, the re-growth is naturally stubbly and spiky which may be very uncomfortable. When you shave your hair, you are cutting it off leaving a blunt tip. When you wax the hair, you remove it from the root, so when it grows back it has a fine tip that is soft and not sharp.
5. Waxing saves energy and money
Waxing is better than shaving as you don’t have to waste money on multiple razors and shaving cream. Razors get dull fairly quickly and they are expensive to replace. If you shave with a dull razor, you’re more likely to get razor burn. Shaving also requires wasting a lot of water while showering and it takes up a large amount of time per day. A waxing appointment typically takes 30 minutes (depending on the area(s) being waxed) and the results are much longer lasting.
6. Waxing has longer lasting results
Results from waxing usually last up to a month while shaving must be done on a daily basis. Hair still grows back during this time period but it grows back finer and softer compared to when shaving. Hair has to grow back again in order for you to wax again, but the hair is much less noticeable and doesn’t require you to shave it.
7. Waxing requires less effort
With waxing you get to pay a licensed professional to remove your unwanted body hair instead of having to struggle with it by yourself.
