How To Use The Wax

Check The Length Of Hairs

First, you have to check the length of hairs you want to remove. For proper waxing your hairs must be between 1/8 inch and 1/4 inch long. Because if your hairs are too short, wax will not pull the hairs out by its roots. Also, if your hairs are too long then you may experience a little bit of discomfort.

Strip Of Fabric

Prepare few strips of fabric. If you do not have strips already then you can cut up or tear up a cotton or linen shirt.

Applying Baby Powder

Now dust the area with baby powder before applying it. It will absorb body oils and moisture eventually allowing the wax stick on hairs and making the process much less painful.

Applying Wax

Apply wax by using spatula on your desired place. Make sure to apply it in the direction of hairs growth.

Removing Strip

Hold the strip from the edge and pull it off the opposite direction of hairs growth. You need to do this very quickly. Make sure not to pull it off at 90-degree angle. It must be in more shallow angle.

This is an economical and easiest way to make wax at home. You need to be careful before applying wax on your skin if it is hot it can be damage your skin.
