Brazilian Secrets #4 - Consistency is Key


Ever wonder why following a regular waxing schedule is so important? You might think the wax removes all hair completely, but that’s not true.

Understanding the hair growth stages explains why maintenance is necessary:

  1. Anagen: Hair is attached to the blood supply and growing.
  2. Catagen: Hair is no longer attached to the blood supply and sits in the follicle.
  3. Telogen: Hair is ready to shed, pushed out by new growth.

This cycle ranges from 2-5 weeks, depending on the body part and individual hair growth.

Regular maintenance for Brazilians should be every 4-6 weeks to catch hairs at various growth stages, ensuring smoother removal. Consistent waxing means hair is long enough for the wax to grab, extending the time between sessions and reducing regrowth.

Aim to remove most hair at the Anagen phase, which damages the follicle slightly each time, making it less able to produce viable hair.

Re-book clients before they leave to keep them on a regular schedule.
