Waxing leaves the skin smooth and the hair grows back slower, softer and lighter than when shaved.
For the ladies, shaving leaves skin stubbly and rough, plus the hair grows back thicker, darker and more noticeable. Not very attractive! Waxing leaves skin smoother and the hair grows back softer, lighter and more slowly, so even when the hair is coming through, it feels soft and is much less noticeable.
For the guys, waxing is great for larger areas like those pesky shoulders and back. It lasts 4-6 weeks for most men. It hurts, a bit, but not nearly as much as you think!
Different parts of your body have different levels of sensitivity too, like the small of your back or the tops of your pecs nearest the collarbones tend to be more sensitive.
Everyone experiences it differently, because every bloke has a different resistance to what's happening. Eventually, after 4 to 6 years of constant waxing, the hair will usually stop growing. Well, wouldn’t you give up too after that?
