What is the recommended type of wax - hard or soft - to use for Brazilian waxing?

choosing the right wax for Brazilian waxing


When it comes to Brazilian waxing, both hard wax and soft wax can be used, but many estheticians and clients prefer hard wax. Hard wax is considered to be less painful than soft wax because it adheres only to the hair and not the skin, making it less likely to cause irritation or discomfort. Soft wax, on the other hand, adheres to both hair and skin, and it requires a strip to remove the hair, which can be more painful.

Furthermore, hard wax is generally recommended for sensitive areas because it is less likely to cause inflammation, ingrown hairs, or other issues that may arise from removing hair in these delicate areas. It's important to note that everyone's skin is different, so it's best to consult with a professional esthetician to determine which type of wax is best suited for your individual needs and preferences.
