Sugaring: What Makes It So Popular?

Sugaring is a hair removal procedure that helps to get rid of unwanted regrowth using sugar paste in any part of the body. So, what is sugar wax? The skin on the treatment area is covered with a layer of sugar mixture. The sticky substance tightly envelopes the hair and then penetrates to the root.

Sugaring helps to eradicate hair on any body part, from the face to the feet.

How Long Does a Sugar Wax Last?

On average, depilation with sugar paste ensures the absence of unwanted hair for 3-4 weeks. In some cases, hair starts to appear after seven days. Sometimes, the smoothness even remains for five weeks or more. The lasting effect is based on some influential factors:

  1. Hair structure. Dark, stiff, and coarse hair usually grow back faster. Fine blond ones grow more slowly. The first kind usually occurs under the armpits and in the bikini area. The second is more common on the arms, legs, and face.
  2. Gender and ethnicity. As a rule, men have much thicker body hair than women, so it grows faster. This may also apply to people of different nationalities.  
  3. Season. In spring and summer, everyone’s hair grows faster because of the exposure to heat, sunlight, and an abundance of vitamins in the form of berries, fruits, and vegetables. In autumn and winter, sugaring results last a few days longer.
  4. Hair growth phase. Hairs have three life cycle stages, after which a new hair replaces them. If you remove them at the beginning of their growth, the effect will last longer because the new hair has not yet formed. If you catch a hair at the last phase, another one will take its place almost immediately.
