This is a question about waxing (hair removal) at home rather than at the spa. Recently I decided to stop shaving my legs and look for other hair removal alternatives. I was getting sick of the pointy sharp hairs that come out when I shave..So I went to a spa and had my legs waxed there. I love it, it's been about 5 days since I had it done and there is no signs of hair yet, just smooth perfect legs!!! i'm so happy..But I want to learn how to do it on my own at home. I've had many failed attempts before, i've bought tons and tons of waxing kits that ended up making a huge mess, and not being able to remove any hair!! What kept happening was- I put on the wax, waxing strip, followed all directions but when I take out the waxing strip, the wax comes off but none of the hairs are plucked out- they stay right where they were! This was when I used a cold wax. When I used heated wax it took out some hairs but not all. I think the key is in the wax..The one they used at the spa didn't need a waxing strip, it solidified enough to be able to come off just by peeling it off. Does anyone know where to buy this kind of wax and what it's called? I've been searching for different kinds online but no luck so far...
