Waxing is the process of hair removal from the root by using a covering of a sticky substance, such as wax, to adhere to body hair, and then removing this covering and pulling out the hair from the follicle.
Benefits of Waxing
Waxing lasts longer than shaving because it pulls the hair from the roots. No cuts or nicks that can leave you with scars. For many, this processs makes the hair grow slower and finer. It produces smoother results because hair is pulled from the root. Waxing will make your skin feel smoother longer without feeling itchy, because of slower hair regrowth.
