1 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons water
♥DOES IT HURT?
-It does hurt a little, but less than regular waxing.
♥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. 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. 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.
♥ 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.
♥ 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.
♥ 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. ♥
