So how does the hair come out when you use sugaring?

I get asked this question a lot. Many people I've spoken to ask me the question
"What in the world are you talking about? Remove my hair with SUGAR?
What kinda kinky s**t are you talkin' about Jen?"

So how does the hair come out?


As the sugar is spread in the opposite direction of hair growth
(toward your knee, spreading 3 times),
the pores are being opened and relaxed.
This allows the sugar to seep into your pores and essentially
lube up the hair to be able to glide right out.

The Result?


There are differences between sugaring and waxing.


  • Wax (often with resin and chemical) is usually spread in the
    SAME direction of your hair growth.
    (Toward your ankles, right?)
  • Then, they apply the muslin strip.
    They rub it and yank it off in the opposite
    direction of hair growth (towards your knee).
    They do it fast, though it is often quite painful.
  • The result? You get red skin, bumps, and ingrown hairs.
    Most experience sensitivity, irritation, sometimes
    even raw skin if the wax was too hot

There are two different methods to sugaring.
It is a personal preference about which one
you choose to embark on.

Sugaring:


  1. Not as painful as waxing.
    The sugar seeps into pores ensuring a smooth extraction.
  2. You don't experience the ingrowns and
    razor burn associated with shaving.
  3. Eco- friendly (refer to)
  4. Earth safe and friendly
  5. Skin friendly

Sugaring Paste: Cooked to a consistency much like a thick taffy.


  • ​Organic Raw Sugar, Lemons, a smidgen of water.
  • If you are a beginner or your hairs are thick by nature, start off with sugaring paste.
  • Hairs will begin to grow back thinner and sparser ( Read the "Science of Sugaring Hair Removal". Refer to Anagen Stage of Hair Growth - 1/8" growth.) This will be a fine time to "graduate" to Sugaring Gel if you wish.

The traditional (ancient) method of sugaring:


    1. You rub a thick ball of sugar in the
      OPPOSITE direction of hair growth.
      You do this three times.
      Then real real quick, in a "flicking" motion,
      remove the sugar in the SAME direction as hair growth.
      The "flicking" motion is with your wrist and fingers.
    2. This can be performed with an applicator or your fingers.
      I provide and applicator because it makes sense.
      The heat does not transfer between your fingers and the sugar.
      The heat will melt the sugar faster. I prefer the applicator method.
    3. You are removing the hairs in the SAME direction of hair growth,
      you won't experience as much pain as waxing.
    4. You don't experience the ingrowns and razor burn
      associated with shaving and waxing.

Sugaring Gel is a lot like thick honey.


  • ​​Organic Raw Sugar, Lemons, a smidgen of water.
  • Great when your hairs are already thin from previous waxing or natural.
  • You can still use sugaring paste as well.

The Sugaring Gel (adapted through time) method of sugaring:


    1. Spread a thin layer on the desired area in the
      SAME direction of hair growth.
      Tip: Smaller the area, smaller amount.
    2. Set your applicator down and grab a thick denim strip.
      Apply it on top of the thin layer of sugar, rub
      (applying friction and transferring heat).
    3. Grab the end of the denim and remove in the OPPOSITE
      direction of hair growth. Remember to stay parallel to the skin.
      Do not pull up.
    4. Some people prefer applying in the opposite direction and
      removing in the same direction.
      I do not recommend this method.
      Hairs are more likely to
      break off rather than removed completely.
Always exfoliate 2 days before sugaring.
Regular exfoliation after sugaring is recommended to keep
your skin as smooth as possible in between sugaring.
Results the first time you sugar should last up to
two weeks depending on how fast your hair grows.
Even after the first sugaring, you should see a
noticeable difference in the new growth:
ie thinner, finer, sparser.
