A question you ask yourself every time: To Wax or To Shave?

We all know shaving is a hassle for most of the people. Chapped skin, redness, unattractive bumps, and painful slips of the razor. These are all the problems that come along with shaving, and if it is a bad day, a cut or a rash that would irritate you for hours if not days.

This time consuming, ineffective and painful way often makes us wish if there was an easier way to get rid of the unwanted hair on the body; one that would be less time consuming and less irritating. However much we dread shaving and its consequences, we do not give a fair attention to its obvious alternative: waxing.

Let us look at the advantages and disadvantages of both methods, shaving as well as waxing, the better alternative for getting rid of hair.



More Effective

While shaving just cuts or trims the unwanted body hair at the level of your skin, waxing removes the hair from the roots. This is the reason why the hair appear after a longer time when waxed as compared to when they were shaved.

Healthier Skin

Waxing benefits your skin in two ways. Firstly, because it is not abrasive or harmful to the skin. Secondly, it exfoliates the skin during the process of removing the hair.

Readily Available

This is service is offered by most salons around is. In addition, the take-home waxing kits are also very easily available at your local grocery stores.

Widely Applicable

Waxing is acceptable and a safe method of hair removal from all types of hair and from all parts of the body.



Specialized Skill

If not do not properly, waxing can cause pain and can result in ingrown hair. If you are new to this technique, we recommend that you stay away from the DIY kits and consult a professional as they would know the right temperature and technique for your skin type and would also be a lot more experienced.

Length Requirements

Many experts of waxing and skin care recommended to let the hair grow at least one centimeter before attempting to wax.

Brief Skin Irritation

Sometimes you might notice redness, but in most cases, it would disappear within an hour or so. However, this not even close to the irritation and discomfort caused by shaving; neither is it as long-lasting.


Everything good comes at a cost. Professional waxing services might seem pricey depending on how much of your body needs waxing. However, many salons and spas have deals and offers. Some also offer memberships etc.

The Bottom-Line

If you want the answer, we think it is already quite evident. Waxing is easier, healthier, and less painful and results in a more attractive and effective outcome compared to shaving.
