Waxing makes your hairs thinner? Myth or Fact?

Summer is officially here! So we all are starting to face the big summer conundrum of how to deal with all this body hair that is just the most annoying thing ever. I mean, evolution should have taken care of these already, am I right?! Jokes aside, there are so many different types of hair removal available today, that can be hard to decide what to go for.


Me personally -- until very recently -- I'v always preferred waxing above any other method. I feel that it lasts longer than shaving, I can go somewhere to get it perfectly done by a professional, and for me it doesn't really hurt that much!

Body hair removal is ultimately your choice, you decide what is best for you. And of course I advise you to go for a more permanent hair removing treatment, like laser or IPL. And even tho these are cheaper that they were a few years ago, they are not yet cheap. So you know what's your second best option? Waxing! Why? Because indeed, waxing makes your hair grow slower and thinner.  That's not a myth my friends. THAT IS A HARD FACT. There is no guarantee for permanent hair, but waxing regularly can drastically change your hair

Let's just think about what waxing does to your hairs and skin. When you wax of your hairs, you are basically ripping the hair from it's root, damaging the hair bulb. The hair bulb is what provides nourishment for newly forming and established hair. By waxing repeatedly, the hair bulbs get more and more damaged and they are not able to give the hairs what they need to grow. This means that the hairs can't grow properly resulting in thinner hairs, that take longer to grow. Some follicles can become so much damaged that hairs may not even grow there again. 

And contrary to popular believe, shaving doesn't make your hairs grow thicker! When you shave, the blade cuts a sharp edge at what is the hairs thickest point of the shaft. This not only make your hair feel ticket but it also appears darker That's why when you pass your hand on you leg a few days after shaving you feel like the little sharp hairs poking out. When you wax, hairs basically grow with a more rounded edge, so when they break the skin t don't have this sharp edge, and they feel softer and thinner. 

And here is another girly advice: if you wax frequently, buy one of these Roll-on Wax Warmers. They are very inexpensive, the wax cartridges usually cost under 1€ and you can use it over and over again. I own one, and let me tell you, it was the best investment I've ever made! I actually prefer having it professional done but it is perfect for in between appointments touch ups. Makes waxing easy and super cheap.

  2. Sim senhor, gostei de ler sobre o assunto!!! Mas quando fazemos a depilação com cera não há mais probabilidades de se acabar com pelos encravados?

    1. hello.
      sim, é verdade. exactamente pelas mesmas razões que faz o pêlo deixar de crescer. O tubinho que reveste o poro, que ajuda a encaminhar o pêlo para fora da pele tmb fica danificado... mas uma esfoliação frequente, aguinha e hidratante ajudam!

  3. Sem dúvida que a esfoliação é mesmo o que nos salva dos pêlos encravados.

  9. Olá!
    Eu comecei a fazer sessões de luz pulsada para remover os pêlos há cerca de 4 meses e estou a adorar os resultados. Já estou quase pêlos free e ainda me falta mais uma sessão.
    Beijinhos!

  13. Tenho exatamente a mesma opinião que tu: método definitivo ou cera. Há zonas, como as virilhas e axilhas, em que fiz laser diodo (autch, que doeu! Mas valeu a pena por causa dos pelos encravados) mas nas pernas, como tenho pelos loiros, continuo a preferir usar a cera. E também apostei nessas máquinas super acessíveis com as recargas. Fica muito mais económico do que ir ao salão de estético. Já cliquei nos links ;)
