Waxing Tips:
For the best wax and first time waxers please have at least 10 days and/or a 1/4 inch of hair growth or more, this will allow the wax to grab hold of the hair better. Having your skin moisturized allows the hair to be removed more efficiently without breakage.
  Short term irritation: each hair is attached to living tissue within the hair follicle beneath the skin surface. When you remove hair with waxing, the tissue within the follicle is traumatized when the hair is pulled out. As with any type of skin injury, the body responds with an inflammatory reaction. So the pinkish bumps you see after waxing are simply your hair follicles responding to the minor trauma of having the hairs pulled out. This  typically appears almost immediately after waxing and usually goes away within a day.
