Q: What is sugaring?
A: Sugaring is a method of hair removal that has been in use since 1900 BC, an ancient middle-eastern practice uses an all natural paste or gel made from food-derived ingredients like sugar, water, and lemon juice to remove the hair follicle from the root. The results can last up to six weeks. While there are many recipes, only natural ingredients are used in real recipe. It’s also been called sugar waxing, although not a correct term, because it’s done very similar to waxing.
Q:What is the different between sugaring and normal wax?
Sugaring – Sugaring products never adhere to live skin cells. Therefore, when it is removed, it only gently exfoliates dead skin cells, leaving behind glowing skin. And because sugaring paste is all natural and water soluble, it can be easily rinsed away if it is accidentally flicked on a clothes or residue is left on skin.
- Direction of hair pulling out
Sugaring -With the sugaring method, you only remove the hair in the natural direction of the hair growth. Plus, through the sugaring application technique, the sugar paste seeps into the hair follicle. This helps lubricate the hair root allowing the root to remove completely without breaking and with less pain.
- No risk of burning
Sugaring is done at body temperature. There’s no need for heat. Sugaring treatment adheres to the hair, not the skin, and lubricates the root for easier removal from the follicle. Combined with the hair removal in the natural direction of growth, sugaring means a much less damaging experience for you.
Q: How long does the hair have to be?
A: Your hair should be at least 1/8 inch in length and that should take about a week or two after shaving to get to that point.
Q: Does Brazilian Sugaring hurt?
A: Unfortunately, your first Brazilian sugaring will hurt the most because coarse hairs are being pulled out of the hair follicles for the first time. Since sugaring grabs only the hair not the skin, the pain will be gone really fast. Female clients should schedule Brazilian waxing treatments within the first two weeks after your cycle to take advantage of reduced sensitivity during this period. You should also avoid caffeine and alcohol as it will make you more sensitive and increases the redness after waxing. Lastly, pregnancy also increases sensitivity.
Q: Is it safe to get Brazilian-sugaring during pregnancy?
A: It is really safe to get sugared. However, due to all the hormonal changes in your body and the extra blood flowing to your pubic area, skin is likely to be more sensitive and itchy.
Q: How long do I wait for my next Brazilian sugaring?
A: About 3-6 weeks. Some individuals grow hair faster than others, so they have to repeat the Brazilian sugaring earlier.
