What is Sugar hair removal and how is it different than waxing? Some people called it “sugar wax” which I think is funny, there is no wax in sugar and there is no sugar in wax.
Shorts, dresses, bathing suits… it’s definitely skin-baring season. For a lot of women (and some men too), it’s also hair-removal season. Hair removal can be stressful, expensive, time consuming, and, if you wax, painful. However, there’s a new, natural, less painful alternative to traditional waxing that delivers just as good, if not better, results than both waxing and shaving.
This seemingly too-good-to-be-true technique is called sugaring, and it’s become the No. 1 choice for hair removal for many people. “Waxing is a popular and easily accessible method for body hair removal,” “But once you try sugaring, we bet you never go back!”
Sugaring is an all-natural hair removal process developed in Ancient Egypt using sugar, lemon and water.
Since sugar is applied warm unlike wax it will never burn the skin and has very little discomfort. Wax can cling to live skin, tearing it off. Sugaring will only cling to dead skin giving you soft exfoliated results.
When sugaring, hair is removed in same direction as it grows creating a better chance of removing the follicle to slow the regrowth process. Wax is removed against the direction of hair growth potentially breaking off at the follicle. There is less of chance for ingrown hairs when sugaring compared to waxing.
No need for strips or sticks just ball up the sugar paste and spread over the skin. The sugar paste can easily be cleaned up with warm water once finished so you never leave feeling sticky.
Sugaring can remove a shorter hair length than waxing so there is no need to wait a few extra days for regrowth.
I have found that since I started sugaring it is a little more hygienic and bit more efficient because you only need the one round ball of sugar rather than several strips of wax. Unlike traditional waxing, sugaring does not require paper strips, instead we use a special paste made out sugar, lemon juice, and water. Using our hand, the aesthetician smoothes the paste onto the skin in the opposite direction of the hair growth and lets it sit for a few seconds, then it’s flicked off in the direction of hair growth to keep the hair intact and prevent breakage.

I have seen a lot of places double dip into their wax pot which is very unsanitary, you don’t have to worry about that with sugaring.
Another thing to think about when you’re doing hair removal is that it is a shock to your system, I always recommend drinking lots of water after you’ve been sugared and or waxed. The results from sugaring can last up to 4-6 weeks.
