If you wax your legs, how long does it take before you have to do it again?

I've been curious in the past to try waxing for a stuble free smoothness, but always wondered if I woul have to wait a long time for hair to be long enough to rip away again. I'm used to shaving everyday or every other day.

  • depends on the person. with shaving mine grows back in 2-3 days to the point where it's starting to become visible. with waxing it took 2 weeks.

  • if it's done properly, it should last 4-6 weeks before you have to redo it. This includes the 1/8-1/4 inch length you want before having to redo it. (preferably 1/4 inch).

    Waxing may not lift vellus hair (baby white barely visible hairs).. and again you need to be sure it's done properly (which is why it's best to seek a spa to have it done). If it's not, it may last as little as 3 days because you broke off the hair, rather than pulled it from it's roots (it's also very painful that way).

  • san.. it's okay to try, you can go to a spa and try your brows for a test strip to see how it feels. It's not as painful as people on tv make it out to be. lol. Especially if it's done properly. Half the time on those tv shows you'll see guys freaking out because of the pain.. well it's because their hair should have been trimmed down first. It's DEFINITELY less painful if you don't have to try to pull up a bear skin of hair that is over an inch long. lol.

  • Once a week or longer. Depends on how fast your hair grows
