Salon Waxing vs Waxing At Home

Salon hair removal vs at home hair removal which one rules is usually a matter of preference and practice. Can you get a salon quality result at home?

For some the salon is the only option. The convenience, the speed, the expertise and the quality of product. The main drawback for many is the price. Salons are becoming increasingly expensive experiences; a full body wax will set you back the best part of a £100. But is price the only drawback?

The convenience and the speed can’t be argued with. Going to a salon will most people less time than the equivalent treatment at home – that is of course unless you well practiced, at which point it becomes a much easier and quicker process – and to many salon users that is crucial.

But when it comes to the quality of product are you getting the best quality in a salon? The real answer is you don’t really know. When it comes to nails, hair products or skincare, salons are fantastic at letting you know the benefits and features of the product. However, when it comes to waxing this is rarely the case. Usually, the pot sits in the warmer the product is applied and whipped off (usually with a layer of skin) and you are none the wiser.

When it comes to at home waxing, there is a huge variety of options. Numerous waxes and sugar waxes. But how many of them are quality products?

Did you know the average at home hair removal product contains 14 ingredients? These range from polymers to paraffin to chemicals we have never heard of. They may be effective, but they are also causing damage to the skin. They are also devastating when they spill, requiring all sorts of solvents to clean up any mess or residue.

Using an at home hair remover should be fuss-free, and price competitive. It should also give you the feeling and sensation of having used a quality product that has taken care of you and your skin the way a waxing therapist would if you were in the salon.

Thankfully, this product now exists with Sugar Coated Hair Removal.

Sugar Coated sugar wax was created by our founder Rosie, a hair removal expert and professional for over 40 years. She developed the recipe behind Sugar Coated for the professional market but felt it was too good and easy to use to be only available to salons. She knew the product would be ideal to use at home.
