How to apply hot wax and cold wax?For example, the hairs must be at least 0.5 cm long as stated. Then add the heated warm wax to the clean, fat-free skin. The wax is applied either by means of a spatula or a roll when it is a donor. As long as the wax is still warm, put a cotton or paper towel on it and press it lightly. As soon as the wax is dry, it is pulled off against the direction of hair growth and the hair is removed. Excess wax should be removed with an oily cream.
Cold wax is easier to handle. First, rub a cold wax strip between the hands to heat it a little, then remove the protective paper and place it on the spot to be dehaired. After pressing it well, it is pulled back against the hair growth direction.
