[WAXING & SUGARING]

Waxing is a process that is undertaken to remove hair from the root in a semi-permanent way. First the skin is prepared by cleansing and the application of a barrier product such as oil or powder to protect the skin. A wax made of resins and oils is applied to the desired area in the direction of the hair growth and removed against the direction of hair growth. Instinct uses both hard wax and soft wax depending on the area being treated and the type of hair you have. Hairs that are course are well suited to the use of hard wax, which requires no strip to be laid over the wax because the wax hardens around the hair. Soft wax is suitable for areas with finer hairs and uses a muslin cloth strip to remove the wax after application. Instinct uses the most natural waxes that are available to ensure your safety and comfort. The hair removed through waxing grows back again after a duration of around 2-8 weeks. 

 

Sugaring is the process of hair removal that was used by the ancient egyptians. A sticky paste is made using sugar, lemon juice and water and is then used to remove unwanted hair by spreading the sugar onto the area desired for hair removal against the direction of hair growth. The paste is then gently "flicked" back in the direction of hair growth, pulling hairs out by the root along with it. Sugaring is more gentle on the skin as there is no rick of the paste sticking to live skin cells and removing them along with the the hair. The sugar paste is also very hydrating to the skin. Results of sugaring will last anywhere from 2-8 weeks dependent on the hair growth rate of your hair!

 

Almost all hair that grows on the body can be removed using waxing and sugaring techniques. Instinct offers hair removal services for both men and women.
