Hard Wax:

Hard wax, also known as stripless wax, is a popular choice for sensitive areas and delicate skin. Here are its key features and benefits:

  1. Application: Hard wax is applied directly to the skin and hardens as it cools. It adheres to the hair but not the skin, allowing for easier removal without the need for wax strips.
  2. Comfort: One of the significant advantages of hard wax is its gentleness on the skin. It adheres firmly to the hair while minimizing discomfort and reducing the risk of irritation.
  3. Ideal for Coarse Hair: Hard wax is effective for removing coarse and stubborn hair, making it suitable for areas like the bikini line, underarms, and face.
  4. Gentle: This waxing method adheres to the hair only, making it a suitable choice for those with sensitive skin.

Soft Wax:

Soft wax, also known as strip wax, is a versatile and widely used hair removal option. Here’s what you need to know:

  1. Application: Soft wax is applied in a thin layer on the skin and then removed using wax strips. The strips adhere to the wax, allowing for swift and efficient hair removal.
  2. Coverage: Soft wax is suitable for larger areas of the body, such as the legs, arms, and back. It can efficiently remove hair from multiple areas in a single application.
  3. Speed: The quick application and removal process of soft wax make it a time-efficient choice, especially for larger treatment areas.
  4. Exfoliation: Soft wax also provides a gentle exfoliation as it removes the top layer of dead skin cells, leaving the skin feeling smooth and refreshed.
