Top Reasons Why You Should Choose Waxing over shaving

Have you ever asked yourself if there really is a difference between waxing and shaving? They all serve the same purpose, right? Why wax when you can shave?  The answer to your question is yes, there is indeed a difference; a great difference. And there’s a million and one reasons why you should wax instead of shave. Below are some of the benefits of waxing over shaving.



  • Extends the duration before regrowth

After your waxing session at the spa, you won’t have to worry about shaving for at least a month. Unlike shaving, which cuts hair from the surface of the skin, waxing removes the hairs from the root and, as a result, the hair does not grow back as easily and quickly as shaving.

It also leaves you with smooth skin. This is because your torn hair strands will need more tone to develop and reach the surface of your skin. In addition, frequent waxing of the skin will also lead to less frequent regrowth of the hair.


  • Lesser occurrence of inflammation and itching

Some of the most common side effects of shaving are itching, discoloration, and inflammation of the skin. This could be very uncomfortable and annoying to anyone. Thankfully, waxing does not cause either of these to your skin.

Inflammation and discoloration of the skin when shaving are caused by constant contact and friction of the skin with the razor leading to inflammation and discoloration.

This is avoided when you wax instead of shave. Also, the itchy skin is most noticeable when shaving than waxing; itching also occurs less after a wax.


  • Waxing leads to a finer regrowth

One of the major differences between shaving and waxing is in the type of regrowth you will experience. When you shave, you cut off the surface of your skin’s hair which can lead to a blunt cut. Since the hair is not naturally blunt, the regrowth after shaving might be a bit rough.

Waxing, however, removes the hair from the root, which will result in a smoother and finer regrowth.
