There are three stages of hair growth the: anagen, catagen, and telogen phases. Each strand of hair on your body is its own stage of development. Once the cycle is complete, it restarts and a new strand of hair begins to form. The cycle takes about 30 days.
Why wax in the first place…
Over time, the length of the anagen stage decreases. This causes the hair to become thinner and weaker once each cycle is complete. Most of the time your hair grows back at a slower rate and is often thinner.
The reason why…
1. The goal with regular waxing is to get your hair growth on the same cycle. This is why it is important to stuck to on a strict schedule, 4 weeks is ideal. This will give you the best results.
2. Shaving changes the texture of your hair. When you shave your hair is cut at the surface but when you wax hair is pulled out at the follicle. Wax hair grows back in smoother and softer.
3. After you shave your next wax might hurt more. Shaved hair grows back in thicker and longer.
4. Waxing provides more even results.
5. You are less likely to get ingrown, which can easily get infected.
