Jenny Wax DC frequently asked questions

What should I do to prepare for a wax?

​If you normally shave, pluck, or perform any kind of hair maintenance, don’t do it for two to three weeks before you go get waxed. The exact time frame depends on how fast your hair grows. The longer your hair is when you arrive, the better. It leads to a cleaner and easier wax. Many newbies trim their hair before a wax and actually cut it too short. That is worse than coming in with your hair a little long—the wax won’t be able to get a hold on your hair and won’t work as well.

 

Is it ok to shave every day?

Waxing is the smarter choice, according to scientists, because it removes the hair below the skin level, immediately weakening the hair follicle so that hair grows back more slowly, lightly, and sparsely over time.

 

Can you get a bikini wax during your period?

Yes, you can have a bikini wax during your period.
 

How do you avoid ingrown hairs and what should you do once you get them? ​​​​​​​

You should exfoliate regularly to avoid ingrown hairs. When you have an ingrown hair, dab it with a little bit of an acne spot treatment (benzyl peroxide or salicylic acid) several times a day to help with removal. The acne spot treatment along with exfoliation is often enough to remove ingrown hairs and is one of the least painful ways to remove them. Tanning lotions, alkaline cosmetics, after-shave products containing alcohol, and bars of soap also leave a film on the body that could cause ingrown hairs - stay clear of these for at least 48 hours after your wax.
