What’s the Difference Between Soft Wax and Hard Wax?

Waxing is a quick, convenient, and most importantly long-lasting method to remove unwanted body hair. The removal process pulls out the root of your hairs with hot wax which results in faster growth cycles for future iterations on this area as well as less ingrown from razor bumps.

Waxing at home takes some research to find the perfect product for your skin type and needs. There are two different types of wax: soft or hard, depending on how quickly it will be removed by clothing after application (you don’t want any stings.

Hard Waxes tend not only to last longer but also provide more protection against allergies than do Soft Wares – so if you’ve got sensitive areas like Netherlands legs for example then this might just suit better.

What is Hard Wax?

Hard wax is the way to go when it comes to sensitive spots, like a Brazilian. That’s because professional wax adheres better with your skin than other types of products do and leaves you hairless in all those places where others don’t.

So what’s the best way to remove hair from your sensitive spots? Hard wax. That’s because it adheres to hairs rather than skin, giving hardwax an edge in this category.

Hard wax is a superior alternative to traditional methods of removing hair, as it does not require the use of strips or razors. Hardened beeswax forms an almost unyielding seal around your skin and holds onto every follicle for dear life before being effortlessly peeled away by hand pressure alone.

How to Use?

If you think hard wax will suit you, here’s what you should do:

  • Preparation of the area to be waxed.
  • Make a barrier between the wax and your skin by applying a pre-wax oil, like grapeseed oil. It will help protect your skin.
  • Heat the wax to around 130°F. Don’t let it get too hot. Warming wax in a wax warmer is the easiest and most safest method. Try to find one that has a temperature gauge dial so you can know when your wax is at the right temperature.
  • The wax should be applied in the direction of hair growth with a waxing spatula.
  • Let it harden for a few minutes, then remove it in the opposite direction of hair growth.

What is Soft Wax?

Soft wax can be pulled off of your skin in one piece, but it is not always easy.

The first layer that gets removed during the removal process contains cells that help protect against bacteria and water loss by providing a barrier between us and our environment–this makes them essential for living things.

 The outside topmost surface will come away too if you’re using soft or medium hard paste (depending on texture preference) because these types don’t have enough substance to hold onto their shape once it is been applied; however, this means less overall time needed before getting started with minimal risk involved when doing so.

How to Use?

Following are the steps for using soft wax:

  • A clean, dry area must be waxed.
  • Follow the instructions that come with the wax.
  • While holding your skin in place, apply the wax.
  • With a waxing spatula, thinly wax the area. Be sure to apply the wax in the direction the hair grows and to spread it evenly over the entire area.
  • Use a waxing strip to vigorously wax the area.
  • Holding the skin taut is required to remove the strip in the opposite direction of the hair growth.
