    Waxing removes hair from the root, so it takes a longer time for hair to grow again, anywhere from 3-8 weeks, depending on the individual speed of hair growth. This means your hair free, smooth skin lasts much longer and you can go for that holiday on the beach and bask in the glory of your smooth and glowing skin without having to worry about body hair showing up in the meantime.

    In contrast to other methods of hair removal like hair-removing creams and shaving, waxing does not cause cuts, pigmentation, or badly smelling skin. No harsh chemicals are present in wax, so the skin is saved from their damaging effect.

    The hair that grows after waxing is much finer and softer, not rough and hard as after shaving, and the really good thing is - waxing does not cause any ugly stubble as seen in just a day after shaving.

    Waxing gives a much better result that lasts much longer, and the more often you go, the longer it lasts. Waxing takes the hair out down to the root, while shaving only gets to the skin surface. And when you pull it out at the root, it damages the follicle, so the hair doesn't grow back as well. It takes longer to grow back, and grows in thinner. I also get much less rash and fewer bumps from waxing than from shaving.

    For men, getting their back waxed is the only option, because they can't really get to it with a razor.

    waxing is much more smoother and lasts longer.. whereas when you shave - the hair grows back within a few days
