TUESDAY TIP: The “So True So False” Guide to Waxing Vs. Shaving

By Janehspark

One of the most popular questions that I’m asked is the difference between shaving and waxing. Myths still abound in this space, so on this Tuesday Tip I’m setting the record straight with my “So True So False” to Waxing vs. Shaving.

Shaving makes your hair grow in thicker, darker, and grow faster. SO FALSE. Because shaving cuts the hair bluntly and uniformly at the skin’s surface, regrowth is more noticeable. Instead of the normal tapered end, a blunt end looks more coarse – and all the stubble grows in at the same rate, calling more attention to the growth. If you want to avoid the appearance of uniform stubble growing in, waxing is a better choice than shaving – especially for facial hair.
Hair grows more slowly when you wax. SO SEEMINGLY TRUE. Waxing is an effective way to pull the entire hair out of its follicle. Hair takes longer to become noticeable because it has to grow to the surface of the skin before you can see it. Also, since every hair grows in at a different rate, making hair growth much less noticeable. Most women who come to Julep wax legs every three to four weeks, instead of every 2 to 3 days with shaving.
Repeated waxing can eliminate hair over time. SO TRUE. Yanking hair out of its follicle oer and over can damage the follicle enough to keep it from producing more hair. But the number of waxing treatments it takes to achieve this effect varies with each person.
