Constantly feel like you always have hair? That sounds like 2nd hair growth. This happens when your hair removal isn’t in sync with your hair growth. Track back to your last hair removal – have you been shaving a few times a week? STOP! You need all your hairs to grow out for the shortest hairs to be long enough to wax. This will help to keep you smoother for longer. Don’t worry it will be worth it.
That’s totally fine. You can still wax, it may be a bit more painful for your first time.

No trimmers? you can use sterilised scissors to trim your hair if need, however you can still wax will longer hair , you may need extra strips, so keep this in mind when ordering.
Shaving cuts your hair at the surface of the skin, creating a sharp end, this can lead to ingrown hairs, itchy skin and also 2nd hair growth. This means you will always have hair constantly, growing so you have a spiky feel or you see black dots in your pours regularly. So put down the razor and join Wax Club so you can have smooth, hair free skin. Waxing is here to stay!
Always do a patch test before use to see if your skin has a reaction. It is normal to have red pours or skin after waxing. Apply the after wax oil to help sooth your skin and it will subside after a few hours. If a rash persists with continued use, discontinue using the product.
Ask a friend to help. If you want to wax an area such as a back either modify and wax the top of your back/neck and shoulders or just your lower back. You can ask a friend to wax the rest. You will need to move your body about to suit the area you are waxing. Remember to start in smaller areas to test and work in sections so you don’t go over the same area twice or miss any hairs. The strips are designed for quick and easy use. Don't forget to hold your skin taut when removing the strip.
Before applying the strip to your skin and hairs, check to see what way the hairs are facing to making sure you remove the strip opposite to the hair growth direction. You may need to remove the strip in different ways to get all your hairs.
Make sure your hair is long enough and you have prepared your skin by exfoliating. When you have applied the strip to your skin, rub and smooth the strip on correctly so it sticks to all the hairs. If you have missed a few hairs and the skin isn’t sensitive go over the area again with the strip until it looses its efficiency or use tweezers to pluck shorter hairs.
Do a patch test to ensure your skin is not sensitive. Don’t go over the same area twice. The strips are suitable for most hair and skin types. Waxing is a great option to start your hair removal over shaving!
