Getting waxed removes hair at the root for smooth skin that can last weeks. But hair often grows back quickly, requiring frequent waxing. What steps can help slow down regrowth to extend time between waxes?
How to Slow Down Hair Growth After Waxing
Methods to potentially slow hair regrowth after waxing include exfoliating regularly, staying hydrated, avoiding direct sunlight, trying sugar waxing, using aloe vera gel, taking oral supplements like silica or biotin, and using topical retinoids like retinol creams. Consistency is key.
Gently exfoliating 2-3 times per week removes dead skin cells and opens follicles for slower, finer regrowth.
Drink plenty of water to keep skin hydrated and hair supple and less prone to quick regrowth.
Limit Sun Exposure
Minimize direct sun on waxed areas. UV rays stimulate faster regrowth.
Try Sugar Waxing
Some find sugar wax slows regrowth compared to soft or hard waxes.
Apply Aloe Vera Gel
Aloe vera contains enzymes that help slow hair growth. Apply twice daily.
Biotin, silica or MSM supplements support strong keratin for potentially finer, slower regrowing hairs.
Retinoids like retinol creams may temporarily slow hair follicle activity.
Why Does Hair Grow Back Quickly After Waxing?
Faster regrowth after waxing happens due to:
- Hair removal at the root triggers a growth response
- Waxing exfoliates skin and opens follicles
- Irritation and inflammation from waxing
- Coarse, dense hair type
How Soon Does Hair Regrow After Waxing?
On average, regrowth begins around 3-4 weeks after waxing. Hairs may feel stubbly at 1 month and require waxing again by 6-8 weeks based on your individual hair growth rate.
Is There Permanent Hair Removal After Waxing?
No, waxing is not a permanent method. While results last longer than shaving, hair will always regrow eventually as follicles remain intact.
See a Dermatologist for Other OptionsFor more permanent reduction, consult a dermatologist about laser treatments or electrolysis which damage the actual follicles.
What About Prescription Creams?Prescription anti-androgen creams may slow growth, but have potential side effects. Discuss with your doctor.
The Bottom Line
Exfoliating, hydrating skin, limiting sun, aloe vera, and certain supplements may help reduce speed of regrowth after waxing. But consistency is essential to see a noticeable difference in regrowth time.
