When you’re between waxes…
DO wait four to six weeks between wax appointments. Everyone’s hair grows at different speeds and lengths, plus it tends to speed up during the summer months.
DO apply tea-tree oil to ingrown hairs, as it dries out the infection. For more serious irritation, seek professional advice.
DO maintain a good exfoliation regime. This means a gentle scrub once or twice a week to keep ingrown hairs at bay.
DO moisturise. Apply product after showering to keep your skin soft.
DON’T participate in any vigorous exercise within 12 hours of your treatment. This is because mixing heat and sweat on the waxed area can result in ingrown hairs.
DON’T ever pick at an ingrown hair, This includes digging with fingers, tweezers or pins – all are a big beauty no-no.
