Sugaring

Sugaring

Sugaring hair removal is an ancient Middle Eastern practice that uses an all-natural paste or gel made from a sugar base with other ingredients sometimes including essentials oils. It removes the hair follicle from the root with results that can last up to six weeks.

It's also been called sugar waxing because the gel is similar to waxing. The two types of sugaring, using paste or gel, are performed differently.

The paste is considered the traditional technique. A warmed, thick mixture is applied first in the opposite direction of hair growth using the hands. It's then removed in the direction of hair growth. Using the gel is similar to waxing. The gel is applied in the direction of hair growth and removed in the opposite direction with a cloth or muslin strip.
