Spring is hair! by Diannia

The Spring solstice will take place on Friday 20th of March 2020, so Spring will be officially here, layers of clothes will be coming off and it is now a good time to focus on hair removal. First off, let’s think about some of the methods, benefits and

reasons why people remove the hair, from their bodies. We will compare the two most common methods of hair removal, starting with shaving. 

Shaving is straightforward it’s quick, simple to do at home and inexpensive. That’s the good stuff, now let’s look at the drawbacks, firstly, it’s super easy to knick the skin, can cause bumps, scars and needs to be done every couple of days in some cases. When hairs grow back they can often feel stubbly and rough to the touch. A huge range of women’s razors can be purchased, from the simple straight forward types, to more expensive models that release scented gels when used and can cost approximately £3.98, each. Now we will consider waxing as a method of hair removal. Waxing is also a temporary method of hair removal that involves using wax to remove hair from the face and body. The benefits of waxing are that, both the visible hair and the root are removed, this means that

the re-growth is of completely new hairs with soft tapered tips. It takes 4-6 weeks before another treatment is required and after many years of waxing, hair growth becomes patchy and slower to regrow. 

Now the downside to waxing, firstly, you will get the best results by visiting a beauty salon, there is a cost attached, you can expect to pay anything from £8 upwards to have your underarms waxed. The hair has to be at least ¼ of an inch in length, in order for the wax to stick to the hairs and treatment can only be performed on those with healthy skin. Whatever method you decide to use,

apply a non-scented lotion regularly to keep your skin soft and nourished

throughout the Spring and Summer.
