The great debate among men and women with hair removal can be simplified between which is more efficient, waxing unwanted hair or shaving unwanted hair? Both of these hair removal processes are effective, but is there one that is more advantageous than the other? Whether you prefer shaving or waxing, Weeki Wachee residents will find it beneficial to learn about the preferred uses of each.
Shaving with a razor has been the standard in hair removal much long that wax, for both men and women. One of the problems people have with razors is there sensitive skin; some uses are prone to razor burn and ingrown hairs much more than others. But with waxing, Weeki Wachee residents’ only discomfort comes from the initial removal of the hair follicles.
Although shaving does cause more discomfort after the hair removal process then wax, shaving with a razor is more efficient and cheaper. Hot wax must be applied to the affected areas, heating and the application are both a timely process that is much slower than using a razor. Another thing to consider is the cost for each. Because you have to use new wax for every new use, It costs less to buy razors for shaving then wax for waxing. Weeki Wachee residents who don’t have extra money will find the razors are still their best option for hair removal.
But which is better for regrowth of hair, razors or wax?
Since razors only cut the hair at the surface of your skin, the hair follicle is still intact and takes a lot less time for you to start noticing the hair growing back. With shaving, hair usually grows back within a week to ten days after you first shaved. On the flipside, waxing removes the hair and the follicle, taking about three weeks for the hair to grow back to your pre waxing state. It is important to note that these time frames do not apply to anyone; Everyone grows hair at a different rate!
