Waxing is another way of epilating, in which an entire hair shaft is being removed. It is the longest-lasting temporary hair removal technique available. Hair to be removed must be at least ¼ inch in length. When the wax is applied on the skin, it enters the follicle allowing the hair to be pulled out from the roots. Hair normally grows back in 3 to 6 weeks. The waxing procedure starts with cleansing the area to be waxed and then the wax is applied onto the skin. This area is then covered with a strip of cloth, which is then quickly pulled off against the direction of the hair growth. Waxing makes the hair grow lighter over time. Because the wax pulls the hair out from its roots, it grows back slowly and less thick than when the shaft is shaved.
The major difference between waxing and shaving is that shaving removes the hair from above the skin. The hair usually grows back in 2-4 days and it is normally thicker and darker. Shaving also tends to leave behind distinctive stubbles.
