We get asked this question quite often! People always wonder if sugaring can lead to permanent hair removal. The answer isn’t so straight-forward, however. It depends on a lot of factors, the major one being how consistently you get sugared. Read on to learn how to properly use sugaring to get a permanent reduction in hair growth.
After your Initial Appointment:
Many people claim that they have an immediate reduction in hair density after their first sugaring appointment. However, this isn’t what is actually happening. When shaving, you are cutting your hair at its thickest point. When the hair grows out, this blunt edge makes your hair feel thicker than it actually is. This is what is responsible for the prickly feeling you get when your hair is initially growing out from shaving!
With sugaring, you are removing the entire hair by its root. When the hair finally grows back, it is the thin tip of the hair that grows out first. This means, even after your very first sugaring treatment your hair will feel thinner!
With Consistent Sugaring:
If you continue to sugar consistently, you will begin to see a reduction in hair growth. As you sugar, you are pulling the hair out by the root. Each time you do this it causes damage to the hair follicle. Eventually, this hair follicle will stop growing hair altogether! The longer you continue to sugar, the less hair will grow back. Even the hairs that do continue to grow will be weaker and get continuously thinner each time you sugar.
It is important not to shave in between sugaring sessions. Shaving in between your sessions leads to mixed results, as we will be going over on our following blog ‘Why you Should never Shave in Between Sugaring Appointments.’
The most important thing to remember if you want to see a reduction in your hair growth is to remain consistent! Consistency is the MAJOR key to seeing a reduction in growth. It takes time, but as long as you stick with it you will see the results you are after!
In fact, I have a client that has been sugaring for five years. She has seen such a reduction in growth, that she only comes in to get sugared every three months now, and even then her hair is very thin and sparse!
