For many women, removing hair from the underarm area is part of the daily routine with shaving a common choice here. While shaving your underarm area can help keep it looking beautifully clean and clear, it doesn’t remove hair from the root and can even stimulate hair growth in the armpit, meaning more regular treatment is needed. Shaving can also cause irritation to the underarm area and in some instances leave a stubble like effect that can sometimes be noticeable. This leads to many woman seeking an alternative to shaving with waxing now becoming one of the most popular ways to look after your underarm area.
What is waxing?
Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for two to eight weeks and almost every area of the body can be waxed. When getting your underarm area waxed, regular waxing reduces the growth rate of hairs in between treatment sessions, something alternatives like shaving aren’t able to do.
Why should you get your underarm waxed?
The hairs under your arm can be very noticeable even when short particularly if you have darker hairs growing in that area. This means regular treatment and maintenance of the area is needed and waxing helps to increase the time needed between each treatment session.
When should you wax your underarm?
There are a number of reasons that you may wish to start waxing your underarm area with the most common including:
Reduce the need for shaving: Shaving of the underarm is a much more frequent treatment for underarm hair problems. Time is the biggest benefit to use waxing over shaving although the end result is also a much better one. You should aim to wax your underarm area every 2 – 4 weeks depending on the growth rate of your hair. Shaving on the other hand can be a daily task for many,
Totally remove underarm hair: Waxing will totally remove your underarm hair, pulling it out by the root. This is something that shaving is unable to do as well as there may still be some small hairs remaining in the armpit depending on the type of blade you use. Think of the “4 o’clock shadow”! Waxing removes the hair, shaving just cuts it shorter.
Prepare yourself for special occasions: Think weddings, formal events and even the all-important Christmas party night. These occasions often require a sleeveless or strapless dress meaning your underarm area is going to be on show. Having some sign of hair or a stubble effect in the underarm can impact on the confidence of many women on occasions like this, so waxing will provide you with a clean and smooth finish, perfect for swinging those arms up in the air and hitting the dance floor.
