Since ancient times, this mix of resins, waxes, and emollients has been a suitable aid for hair removal. There is a comprehensive range of waxes among hard and soft wax, the two main types. Some of the most critical differences between hard and soft wax are their melting points (higher vs. lower), presentations (solid vs. creamy), and application techniques (ripped in the direction of hair growth vs. against the direction of hair growth). The single most important recommendation we can give you about waxing supplies, no matter what type, is to pay attention to the quality of the waxes you use. Always look for natural resins and soothing, moisturizing natural ingredients, such as olive and coconut oil, rose, and honey. Beauty Image offers a variety of soft and hard waxes, roll-ons, and ready-to-apply strips made with the finest ingredients.
Also known as pots, wax heaters are a crucial waxing accessory, as wax consistency plays a major role in the effectiveness of the waxing procedure: the correct temperature and consistency guarantee that the wax will grab onto hair properly, facilitating hair removal. Since the temperature of the wax can turn into a risk factor for burns, it is essential that the pot is used correctly: pay attention to the temperature controls! To extend the life of your warmer, clean it thoroughly. You can read how to properly maintain your warmer in this blog post.
Applicators & Strips
Unless you’re using hard wax that you can rip off with your fingers, you need paper or fabric strips to help you remove wax. These accessories are made from fabric (mostly cotton) or paper (polyester and viscose). Both are resistant and flexible and adapt to any area you are waxing. Most strips come in predetermined sizes for different areas of the body. If you are not using hot wax, you can rely on pre-waxed strips. Stock up on strips if you are a salon owner, as they will perfectly complement your array of hot waxes. Strips are convenient for everyone because they do not require heating or preparation. Additionally, they are much easier to use than hot wax. You can try Beauty Image’s Aloe Vera Body Strips and Aloe Vera Facial Strips for fast and effective waxing.
Wooden applicators or spatulas are necessary to apply wax. Different widths make small or large areas easier to tackle. Even if most wooden applicators have rounded edges, you can also get applicators with straight edges. They make creating straighter lines in the eyebrow or bikini area easier.
Pre-Depilatories & Post-Depilatories
It is imperative to cleanse the skin with an antiseptic pre-depilatory lotion before waxing. This allows the wax to adhere better, giving you better hair-ridding results. More importantly, pre-depilatories help curb some side effects of waxing, including red bumps, ingrown hairs, and tight skin.
Post-depilatories help removes any residue after waxing while soothing and moisturizing the skin. Most waxes nowadays do not leave any residue, including Beauty Image’s waxes, which provide a clean and practical waxing experience. Post-depilatories contain antiseptic ingredients that minimize the risk of infection. Try the Ayurveda line from Beauty Image.
Antiseptic Cream, Oil, Powder, and Gel
Have a cream like Neosporin containing antibiotics to prevent sensitive skin from getting infected after waxing. You can apply it immediately after waxing for extra protection.
A special oil must be applied when using hard wax to condition and protect the skin. The powder must be applied using soft wax to help absorb excess oil. This will allow the wax to adhere to the hair instead of the skin, preventing unnecessary tugging and pain.
A slight stinging sensation and mild redness are two side effects of waxing. These side effects can easily be calmed using a cooling, aloe-based gel. Also, look for gels that contain refreshing ingredients like cucumber and calming ingredients like chamomile or lavender, as they are also excellent options.
Now you know exactly what to buy for professional waxing procedures at a salon. You’ll find the variety of waxing accessories you need.
