I am attempting to wax at home. I bought the Gigi wax warmer, wax, and all the cleanser, powder, lotions and muslin strips to go with it. Every time I have tried it most of the hairs just break off at the surface. I know I am supposed to put it on in the direction of hair growth then pull it off in the opposite. I am being careful not to pull up, I pull back like everybody has said. The hair is about a 1/4" long but it is very fine. I have tried using the wax at various temperature settings and leaving it on for different lengths of time. It seemed like the last strip I did worked the best and I left if on the longest but I’m afraid to leave it on too long. Am I doing something wrong or is my hair just too fine for waxing? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
Would sugaring work better in my situation?
It sounds to me like you would be better off with an epilator. Have a look over on that forum and see what you think.
