How to Use Cold Wax for Waxing at Home

Using cold wax strips is one of the most convenient methods when you’re looking to do hair removal yourself. Learn the benefits of using cold wax and just how easy it is to use.

How to use cold wax strips

Cold wax comes as pre-measured strips of wax that are ready to use straight out of the box. After ensuring your skin is clean and dry, there are just four basic steps to follow:

  1. Carefully peel the strips apart.
  2. Press the strip on to your skin in the direction of hair growth. Rub the strip a few times in the same direction to make sure the wax is sticking well.
  3. Hold your skin taut, then in one swift motion, quickly pull the strip back against the direction of hair growth. Repeat until you’ve removed all the hair you wanted to.
    TIP: you can reuse the same strip until it loses its stickiness.
  4. Clean away any excess wax and sticky residue with baby oil, or a wax-removing wipe if they’re provided with the pack.
