Waxing is the most effective, longest-lasting temporary hair removal technique available. When wax is warm, it enters the follicle, allowing the hair to be pulled out from the root. New hairs do not grow back in the waxed area for three to eight weeks. Waxing removes the hair and dead skin cells leaving the skin smooth. New hair growth in waxed areas is soft and fine, not sharp and coarse like shaved hair.
After repeated waxing, hair regrowth is less common and eventually, some hair never regrows.
