YES, FOR SUGARING YOU APPLY OPPOSITE GROWTH, AND PULL IN THE DIRECTION OF GROWTH. ♥ Questions? Read FAQs in the description! ♥

Here are two different methods of using sugaring for 100% natural, safe hair removal. I find sugaring to be far less painful than regular waxing, and more convenient than shaving. Just remember to cleanse properly, hold the skin taut to avoid bruising, and exfoliate properly for a few days after sugaring for best results.

FAQs:
♥ DOES IT HURT?
-It does hurt a little, but less than regular waxing.
♥ WILL MY HAIR GROW BACK THICKER OR DARKER?
-No. When you use this method repeatedly your hair will actually grow back thinner over time because you are damaging the hair follicles, and you won’t ever get stubble from it, because you’re not cutting the hair, so what does grow back will be silkier. The color won’t change.
♥ AREN’T YOU DOING IT WRONG????
-No, for sugaring you apply opposite hair growth, and pull off with hair growth. This is the opposite method of other types of waxing. This pulls the hair straight out, which prevents ingrown hairs.
♥ DO I NEED LEMON JUICE?
-You can substitute another type of citrus juice, or vinegar
♥ DO I NEED WHITE SUGAR?
-I’m not sure that I would suggest other types of sugar other than granulated white sugar. It will behave differently and may burn.
♥ IT’S HARD AS A ROCK! HELP!
-If it’s too dark, and hard as a rock when it cools, you overcooked it. Keep an eye on the color. You can try adding some lemon juice and heating it a little, but it may just be candy at this point.
♥ IT’S WATERY! HELP!
-If it’s too light, and runny/watery, you haven’t cooked it long enough. Keep an eye on the color. Put it back on the stove until the bubbles are light brownish yellow, and the mixture looks like honey.
♥ HOW LONG DOES MY HAIR NEED TO BE?
-You hair should be about a cm long for this to work, but you may be able to make it work with a little less. If your hair is very long, I suggest trimming in sensitive areas first.
♥ CAN I USE IT ON MY FACE/ARMPITS/LADYBITS/TAINT/TOE HAIR?
-Yes, you can use it on your face, armpits, and lady parts. Be careful not to burn yourself, and pull your skin taut to prevent bruising. Work in SMALL sections for sensitive areas like these. Try it somewhere beefier first, like your thigh. Some people bruise more easily than others if their skin isn’t pulled taut.
♥ IS IT PERMANENT?
-For most people this lasts about 3-4 weeks, but your hair will gradually grow back thinner and thinner the more you use it.
♥ WHAT KIND OF FABRIC DO YOU USE?
-I just cut an old torn bed sheet into strips, but I recommend cotton, or any medium weight, non-stretchy fabric.
♥ CAN I USE SOMETHING OTHER THAN FABRIC FOR STRIPS?
-I haven’t tried it. Probably not.
♥ CAN I EAT IT?
-Yes, you technically can eat it. Weirdo.
♥ HOW LONG DOES IT KEEP?
-You can store it for several months in the fridge. I’ve stored it for over three months with no issue, but I usually run out before then.
♥ CAN I KEEP IT IN A PLASTIC JAR?
-You can store it in plastic, glass, whatever you can safely pop in the microwave for a few seconds.
♥ CAN I MAKE IT IN A MICROWAVE?
-I don’t recommend making this from the beginning in the microwave. You need a stove.
♥ I RUINED MY POT/BOWL/COUNTER/FLOOR/SPOON! HELP!
-Just soak it in water to get the sugar off of anything it may be stuck to. It’ll come off. I promise.
♥ I BURNED MYSELF! HELP!
-First, I told you to be careful. Second, put aloe on it. ♥

  1. what to do if your hard wax becomes to hard to use i really need to know,because my hard wax is too hard and it gets on the skin but wont move anything

  2. guys !!! ⚠️⚠️⚠️ if it is your first time attempting, please DO NOT heat the mixture for 5 minutes please. It turns into hard wax (mine was more like hard rock candy 🙄). Please heat it for 3-4 minutes max and cool it in the container for 15 minutes (even then it’s still VERY hot but at least it settles and that’s the right consistency you’re supposed to get before applying). AND before applying, please please please make sure the wax is NOT HOT if not you’ll BURN yourself and it WILL SWELL and hurt and not to mention, look ugly. I don’t know how weak this youtuber’s stove is at the weakest flame but 5 minutes is absolutely too long to prepare wax. Once the bubbles turn YELLOW turn your stove off, if not you’re in to making yourself some bitter ass candy.

  3. It takes literally 10 seconds to shave a leg, and if you “need” to shave your leg every day, you should check for a dingdong between your dingleberries, because – lady, you’re a guy.

  4. Love the video super informational but measurements are off. You can clearly see that there should be wayyy more sugar than lemon juice and water. But when I used the measurements my sugar was overly saturated

  5. HELPPPPPPP MY WAX GOT STUCK ALL OVER STUFF!!!!!!!…AND IT DONT WANT TO COME OUT!!!!!….PLS HELP ME!!!!!….URGENT!!!!!!….BEFORE MY MOM COME BACK!!!!!!!😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

  6. Tried this and it worked!! It took me a while to get my technique down, but after ward it was pretty great. Saves me 50 bucks. I had to tweeze some hair but I’m sure I’ll have down even better next time! Thanks!!

  7. Thank you for super straightforward and to-the-point video with everything i need to know and no random life stories for 30 minutes! ***
