A good friend of mine introduced me to this latest concept in hair removal. And although I’ve never tried it, I hear sugaring works. She’s promised to host a sugaring party so that a few friends and I can experience this new realm of hair removal. According to about.com, sugaring is defined as follows- “Sugaring hair removal, an ancient middle-eastern practice uses an all natural paste or gel made from food-derived ingredients like sugar, water, and lemon juice to remove the hair follicle from the root. The results can last up to six weeks. While there are many recipes, only natural ingredients are used in real recipe. It’s also been called sugar waxing, although not a correct term, because it’s done very similar to waxing.”
Basically the “sugarer” uses this ball of waxy-esk paste with sugar in it to rub on the hair follicles to rip out the hair. According to my friend, who is now my go-to expert, this little phenomenon is much less painful than waxing with an almost permanent result. She says, the more you do it, the less likely your hair is to grow back.
I’m so excited to give this method a try and report back my findings. The only drawback, your hair has to be grown out enough for the paste to adhere to it. Um, great. I think I’ll postpone until after Valentine’s Day and before summer, thanks!
Have you tried sugaring? What did you think?
