What are cold waxes? Let's see how they work and why they are different from hot epilation.

Cold waxes are very practical and can be done anywhere. This, perhaps, is the first point in favor of hot epilation. Let's see how they work, why they differ from other types of hair removal and what you should know before proceeding with the technique.

Cold waxes: how many types are there?

When we talk about cold waxing we are basically referring to a single epilation technique. Hair removal recommended for those with delicate skin, even if in the case of fragile capillaries it is advisable to be careful, it is performed with a mix of waxes and resins. Therefore, she is equal to her hot colleague on this aspect. So where is the difference? Simple: cold waxing is faster because the strips are ready and the wax doesn't have to be heated. The mechanism, then, is always the same: the hair must remain attached to the wax, in order to detach it from the root.

Cold epilation is very simple: all you have to do is warm the strip a little in your hands, apply it to the skin and tear firmly in the opposite direction to the hair. It should be noted that some people prefer to pull the hair out in its own direction. Therefore, before proceeding with the complete waxing , test the method that is right for you.

Cold waxing: beautician or do it yourself?

After seeing how cold wax works, it's good to make a clarification. In this depilatory technique, tearing is essential because there is no dilation of the pores as in the hot method. Therefore, remember to pull the strip off dryly and firmly. Generally, the groin and armpits are the most delicate areas, so be careful. Cold waxing can easily be done at home , with commercially available strips, but if you are pregnant it is preferable to ask an expert beautician for help.
