Alternative to Waxing: Give Sugaring a Try

Sugaring is Quickly Overtaking Waxing as the Preferred Method for Hair Removal...And here's Why!

There are plenty of alternatives to waxing, but not all of them are created equal. The sugaring method for hair removal is very similar to waxing, but salon owners waxers, and their clientelle are finding out that sugar is superior in almost every way.

 

 

1. Sugar Removal is Gentler on the Skin

Sugaring is a form of hair removal that, like waxing, removes the hair directly from the root. In sugaring, however, sugar paste is removed in the direction of hair growth, while in waxing the wax is removed in the opposite direction of hair growth. Removing the sugar paste in the direction of growth causes less friction on the hair shaft. This leads to less hair breakage and longer-lasting results since more hairs are extracted directly from the root.

 

 

The sugar paste will not adhere to functional skin cells, but will still remove the loose, dead cells. Sugaring gently exfoliates, leaving your skin feeling incredibly smooth. Wax, on the other hand, sticks to the top layer of your skin. It will remove a small layer of skin with each strip removal. This is why  you are not supposed to wax the same area twice. Any missed hair should be plucked. Sugaring, however, allows you to go over the same area multiple times, ensuring that no hairs are missed!

2. Sugar is an All Natural Product

Sugaring paste is also an all-natural product. It is made with three simple ingredients that can be found in any kitchen; sugar, lemon juice, and water. That is all that is required to make sugaring an all-natural alternative to waxing! As the trend toward all-natural products grows, so does the number of women that are switching to sugar!

3. Way Less Waste

Another benefit of sugaring is the lack of waste. A sugaring appointment can contribute as little waste as only one set of gloves. Unlike wax, the sugar paste is biodegradable. Upon contact with water, sugar paste quickly dissolves! 

On top of the waste of the wax itself, many sticks and strips are  used, contributing to the waste created from each appointment. 

If you are looking for an alternative to waxing because you have been burned by hot wax, then sugaring is the perfect fit! Sugaring paste is applied when it is only slightly warmer than room temperature. It is never applied hot. If the sugar paste was ever hot enough to burn you, it would be a liquid and would be unusable by your sugaring technician. The technician wouldn’t even be able to get it out of the pot!

Whether you are looking to offer your clients an alternative to waxing, or you’re only looking for an alternative for yourself, give sugaring a try! We promise the results will blow you away. There is a reason that most people who start sugaring, never go back to waxing!
