When it comes to removing body hair, there are a lot of hair-removal methods from which to choose. But, it can be hard to find the one that works for you. Today, we’ll address the question, is waxing better than shaving? The battle of waxing vs. shaving has been going on for a while. There are pros and cons to each method. Let’s check them out!
The Pros and Cons of Waxing
While waxing has been a go-to method for decades, some are still hesitant to try it. The waxing process involves applying hot wax on the desired skin area, placing cloth on top, and then removing hair by pulling off the strips of cloth. This can be done at home or by a trained professional. It’s a great way to remove hair from the root, and it can last a long time, which is a reason many choose to do it.
But, there are some cons. Waxing can be messy and painful. Plus, if you choose to have it done by a professional, it can be expensive and time-consuming depending on how often you have it done.
The Pros and Cons of Shaving
When removing body hair for the first time, most women start with shaving. Shaving involves using a razor to remove hair at the surface. It’s a relatively simple process and can be done in the convenience of your own home. Razors come in all shapes and sizes, but we believe the best razor for women is one made for women. Using a razor like the Venus® Embrace Sensitive will make shaving easier and help you avoid irritation. Designed specifically for the female body, it comes with a rounded head and a handle shaped for how you use the razor.
So, what are the cons? Shaving improperly can cause some nicks and cuts. And, since you’re removing hair at the surface, you will need to shave more often than you would need to wax. Some people think that shaving makes hair thicker and grow quicker, but clinical studies have proven that’s simply not true.
At the end of the day, it’s important to choose the hair-removal method that works best for you. For more information about different options for hair removal, check out the video below!
