Hey Bees! Any advice on at-home waxing kits? I just recently tried to get my legs waxed for the first time… but it wasn’t very successful. Tried Parissa express strips ($10 a box) first and they worked, but they didn’t finish the job and my legs aren’t big… it’d probably take two boxes to do my legs once. That would get costly! So, I bought a Surgi Wax kit ($40). This was more comfortable but less effective – couldn’t heat up the wax rollers enough. In fact, I have hair growing in a little and it hasn’t even been a week. It’s just breaking my hair instead of pulling it out at the root. So, I’ve done a little each night for a few nights… and I haven’t even been able to go to work in a skirt yet! I have dark, thick, quick-growing hair to begin with… I got brave and tried waxing, and I’d love to keep it up! Any advice on at-home waxing?

I have to say, I would recommend just getting waxed professionally. When I’ve tried at home kits, they haven’t worked anywhere NEAR as well as professional waxing, and I end up spending about as much because, as you said, they often don’t actually give you enough to finish your legs.

Hmm… I never really considered that. But maybe that’s what I should start thinking about. I’m still hoping for an at-home solution though, as I’m looking at doing this fairly reguarly.

i would also say abandon the at-home waxing kits. There are better at-home methods of hair removal that don’t involve waxing. You just have to do some research to find something that you are interested in. But then again, you might spend money on a few different methods and then realize that you’re wasting so much money you want to be professionally waxed. I definitely recommend it. It lasts for a long time and make your legs very smooth. Also, I know people have different takes on this, but in my opinion after a good wax my hair does start to grow back thinner and it takes longer for it to grow back.
