Follow up to waxing your upper lip questions

I was wondering if when you wax your lip if there is a issue with black hairs sticking out and showing alot when it first starts growing back after waxing? Don't you have to wait for the hair to grow out so much in order to wax again?

Also does clipping with scissors make the hair grow back heavier?

  • clipping or shaving does make it grow back heavier and thick. I suggest you get a tweezers and puck.
    If you have dark hair this is very normal.

  • FYI: Clipping or shaving do NOT make it grow back heavier, they just cut off the hair at a point in the strand that is thicker than the tip. I agree that you should tweeze missed hairs.

  • No, the more you wax, the thinner the hair appears to grow back.

  • Nothing you do to the OUTSIDE of your body, can affect the way the hair grows on the INSIDE of your body, 3 libras is correct the more often you wax the more your pores begin to close and the hair becomes unable to get out, also if you keep removing the hair bulb, the less likely it is to grow back.
