Which kind of wax is better for you?

In the world of waxing, there are two kinds of wax that are prevalent: cold wax and hot wax. Both of these kinds have their shared number of advantages and disadvantages. Here is a look into certain bits of information that you should know about both.

Hot wax

This type of wax is further divided into two classes’ hard wax and soft wax. No matter the type they all work the same. In regards to its name hot wax is applied hot. The wax is melted and then applied to the skin, after which it is removed by the hand or by a piece of cloth.

After application the hot wax tends to dry and then clings to the hair, pulling the wax in the opposite direction of growth gives the best results. And for minimal pain it is advised to pull the wax as quickly as possible. Hot waxing in Dubai is very popular.

Advantages of hot wax:

  • It sticks well to the hairs so they are easily removed at once.
  • They are perfect for even shorter hair.
  • The hair follicles open up due to the intense heat so it becomes easier to remove the hair.



  • Too hot wax may burn the skin
  • The method is rather messy and dry wax is not easy to remove.


Cold wax


This kind of wax was originally developed or use at home. Now days the wax is already present on the pulling strips.  All you need to do is make the strip a little warm by rubbing your hand on it, so that it adheres better to the hair.

The strips are applied to the area with hair and pulled in the opposite direction of the hair growth. The beauticians in salons in Springs are amazing at using cold wax in removing body hair.


Advantages of cold wax:

  • It is very convenient to use
  • The waxing procedure requires no special preparation
  • It is very cheap
  • There is relatively less mess
  • This type of wax is less painful for some folks



  • There is an increased risk of growth of ingrown hairs
  • The wax strip might not stick properly with the hair, so it has to be done again and again.


All around the world there is no one type of wax which will work wonders for you, it actually depends on which method is right for you, your skin type and treatment area.
