Brazilian Wax Usage

Brazilian Bikini Wax usage tips

GiGi Brazilian Body Hard Wax is formulated for thorough bikini waxing while being gentle enough for facial application. Hard wax is gentler to your client's skin than Soft Wax when you are waxing sensitive areas. It adheres only to hair, not to skin. This makes Brazilian Body Hard Wax gentle for sensitive areas while providing for the removal of even the coarsest hair. An additional benefit is the lack of the sticky residue that can occur with Soft Wax.

There are several key points to remember when using Brazilian Body Hard Wax,
especially if you are primarily a Soft Wax user.

- Hard wax is gentler to your client's skin than Soft Wax when you are waxing sensitive areas, such as the face and the bikini area.

- Maintaining the proper wax temperature is important for a successful result. The wax should form a soft ball on the end of the applicator. Until you become familiar with the proper consistency for Brazilian Body Hard Wax, a good guide is to heat the wax in a professional pot wax warmer for 15 to 30 minutes on the HIGH setting until the center is not completely melted. At this point, the wax along the exterior of the can should be the appropriate temperature and consistency for waxing. Set and maintain the warmer temperature setting to LOW.

-The application should be thicker than with a Soft Wax.
The Hard Wax should be even all the way around the edges, extending beyond the hair growth area.

- Apply the initial layer of wax in the direction of hair growth. Spread the wax rapidly without placing a large quantity of wax on a single area. This allows for the heat to be distributed evenly, creating more comfort for your client.

- Beginners should apply only one wax strip at a time. After you have mastered the technique, apply as many strips of wax as you are comfortable with at one time, allowing the wax to set.

-Check the surface of the wax strip for tackiness. If the strip is not ready, put it back down and wait a few seconds until fully set.

- The wax surface dulls as it sets. When removing the wax strip, stretch the skin taut and hold firmly. Flick the edge of the strip and remove in the opposite direction of hair growth.

- If the wax breaks or is brittle, then the application was too thin, it was allowed to set too long or the room temperature is too cool.

-Cleanse the area to be waxed with GiGi Pre-Hon Pre-Epilation Cleansing Lotion, applied with a soft, disposable towel.

- Apply a light layer of GiGi Pre Epilating Oil to the waxing area. It is very important not to apply too much oil or it will interfere with the ability of the wax to adhere to the hair.

- When you have completed waxing, apply GiGi Post Epilation Lotion to soothe and remove excess wax.

You can use GiGi Slow Grow Maintenance Lotion to retard future hair growth.

Before you begin Brazilian Waxing, make sure you have the following items:

- A private room with a padded table. Unlike a traditional bikini waxing service, your client may remove all clothing from the waist down. Your client will be exposed during the service, so privacy is crucial.
- Use GiGi Brazilian Body Hard Wax heated in a professional warmer so you are able to maintain a consistent temperature.
- Use GiGi Pre-Hon Pre-Epilation Cleansing Lotion with anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties to help protect the skin from irritation.
-Use GiGi Pre Epilating Oil to prepare the area prior to waxing and soothe the skin.
-Use GiGi Post Epilation Lotion to soothe after the service.
- Soft, disposal towels for application of cleansing lotion and oil.
-GiGi Accu Edge Applicators
- Scissors
- Tweezers
- Gloves

Before waxing you should consider the following precautions:
- To eliminate after wax redness, recommend that clients take an antacid 1-1/2 hours before the wax service. Do not wax over moles.

- Do not wax clients that have the following condition: Sunburn, diabetes, phlebitis, recent scar tissue, or other skin conditions.

- Due to the side effects of increased sensitivity and irritation, it is not recommended that you wax clients that are using Retin A, Accutane, Tetracycline or Glycolic Acid.

- Be aware that during pregnancy clients can experience increased water retention.

- During the 24-hour period following a waxing service, the client should avoid hot baths, tanning beds, saunas or other heat treatments.
