Removing hair from the body is certainly not new. Ancient Egyptians were the first to wax. The ancient Egyptians saw smooth and hairless bodies as beauty. Wax was made with a sticky mixture made of oil, honey, and sugar. This was applied to the body and stripped away. Every Egyptian woman took care that there was not a single hair on her body. A mixture of arsenic, lime, and starch as well as threading were other methods of hair removal. Waxing is a form of semipermanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for four to six weeks, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week due to some of their hair being on a different growth cycle.
Waxing is a fast effective method for removing hair. When hair is shaved or removed by depilatory cream, the hair is removed at the surface rather than the root. Within a few days, the hair can be seen at the surface. With shaving, hair tends to grow back in a rough stubble. Areas that are repeatedly waxed over long periods of time often exhibit regrowth that is softer.
