Shaving hair makes it grow in more dense, and the first time won't be perfect. "Once you wax, you have to commit to waxing. When your hair starts growing back, it won't grow back as dense, which means waxing will be much less painful." Leyda says. Your first wax will take off hairs long enough at that point in time during a particular growing cycle.
"By the time you have your fourth consecutive wax without shaving in between, all the hair will be growing on the same pattern and cycle, which means you'll be getting that super smooth skin you want."
