When it comes to hair removal, there are plenty of options. However, the soft and hard wax debate has been a hot topic in the beauty industry for years. I prefer soft wax from my experience and customer conversation. Soft wax is more gentle. Let’s talk about it!!
Gentle on the Skin
One of the most significant advantages of soft wax is it’s a very thin layer of wax with more control using a waxing strip. In my opinion, it’s a bit more gentle on the skin. Unlike hard resin, which adheres directly to the hair and can sometimes pull at the skin, soft wax adheres to the hair and pulls it from the root, leaving the skin less irritated and red.
Soft wax makes an excellent option for those with sensitive skin or redness and discomfort after waxing. I like to take short-stroke applications when waxing the bikini or intimate area. You will thank me later!
With soft wax's ability to grip the hair from the root, there's less risk of breakage. This means you're less likely to encounter those annoying ingrown hairs that can be a common issue with other hair removal methods.
While both soft and hard wax have their merits, soft wax has a few key advantages that make it the superior choice for many. It is used for larger areas of the body: legs, arms, and bikini area.
So, next time you book your waxing appointment, know that soft wax has got your back!
