HARD WAX – GENTLE FOR EVERYTHING
Hard wax is applied directly to prepped skin, sets up, then is pulled off, taking the hair with it. Cirepil’s Cristalline by Perron Rigot uses an oil as a base to protect the top layers of skin, which are no longer being nourished. As it cools it works like shrink wrap. It shrinks up tightening in on the hair, while shrinking away from the skin, leaving the skin in better condition, yet getting a good pull on shorter hair. Since hard wax doesn’t remove skin, the same area can be waxed over, and if needed, overlapping is no problem.
Soft wax is applied to prepped skin, then a cloth ( muslin) is applied atop the wax, sticking to it, and is removed bringing the hair, and the wax with it. This is not designed for sensitive skin, or mucosal membranes, as it is tougher on the skin, and oftentimes takes with it those top layers of skin which or no longer being nourished. Soft wax is intentionally used in areas where exfoliating is needed. For this reason, soft wax should not be applied to the same spot, nor should it be overlapped as the area is waxed.

DON’T – BUT IF YOU DO…
BUY THE RIGHT WAX
Since you aren’t an expert, always use “Hard Wax”, it reduces the risk of injury. Buy online or beauty supply only.
Each wax uses a different product for prepping the skin. Check to be sure to use the correct skin prep. Usually oil or powder.
To reduce breakage and make this last longer, apply wax from the base of the hair toward the tip, ending where no hair is.
Lift the edge of the wax nearest the tip of the hair, again where no hair is, and pull back, NOT UP, to remove the wax strip.
With each pull pause to apply cool water, then oil to soothe the skin. Wipe off excess oil, or the wax won’t stick.
