Well, let me tell you…girl!!!!!!!! I think I have been converted to sugaring over waxing. Don’t get me wrong, I had reintroduced waxing into my life again just this past Summer, and was quite happy with my chosen wax bar. However, I wanted to know what all the hype was about concerning sugaring, so I thought I would give it a try.
Before I do most things, I research the death out of it before making a commitment. Like most people, I started off by using my good friend, Google. It would had been nice to work with referrals from friends, but I didn’t have that luxury this time around, as most of my friends use wax for their hair removal needs. I was intrigued by the fact that the sugaring method used the exact opposite method of removing hair that waxing does. Wax is put on in the direction of the hair growth and then pulled back with a strip, against the hair growth. With Sugaring, the mixture is put on against the hair growth and then pulled in the direction of the hair growth. If you think about it, if you have ever had to use tweezers, that is the same method you would have to do—simply pull in the direction of the hair growth. And if you really think about it, that is why sugaring is less painful than waxing.
I had decided on Amanda L’Ecuyer, of Sweet Mango SugarBrig & Esthetics, in downtown Toronto. She was awesome. She had explained how the sugaring works vs waxing.
Amanda had explained the benefits of sugaring:
Natural – organic materials (natural sugar cane, lemon, distilled water, and essential oils)
No skin irritation, as the mixture only sticks to the hair and not the skin
Less chance of ingrown hairs
Sometimes, after a wax appointment, my skin is a little tender and I didn’t have that experience, after my sugaring appointment. A lot of that had to do with the fact that the mixture only adheres to your hair and not your skin – makes a difference. Oh, and let me not forget to mention that the mixture is applied at room temperature! I think this method makes the most sense, well for everyone, but mostly for those who have sensitive skin or can’t take the pain that waxes entails. I have to say that I am converted to sugaring 100%. It’s just a healthier way to remove hair. I mean, if you really wanted to, you could eat the mixture because it’s organic (don’t do that though) and have no harm come your way!
Amanda’s customer service is great and so is her personality! Although, she was busy, she was able to fit me in, which I appreciated. She has all the information, you need to know about sugaring, along with testimonials, on her website.
