I’m often asked the difference between waxing and shaving…here is my best analogy:
Shaving is like trimming a bush, the one that grows outside. The more you shave, the fuller and thicker the bush becomes. The roots set in deeper and stronger. That is why the hair itches when it grows back and often causes ingrown hairs.
Now waxing is like pulling weeds in the garden. The more you pull the weeds, the finer and thinner the weeds become. The roots are weak and easier to remove.
Therefore, once you begin to wax, your hair grows back finer and is easier to remove (less painful) unless, of course, you start to shave again….
