Homemade Wax Strips


I`ve mentioned a number of times how much I love to try DIY projects and products, but this article from Homemade Mamas on making your own wax strips I won`t be trying anytime soon. I think waxing should be left to the professionals.

Are any of you brave enough to try this?

I did try sugaring at home, with some other recipe I found on the internet. It does hurt like it did at the salon, well at least for me, but it was cheaper than whatever I paid at the salon! I am not brave to do waxing too often, too chicken.

You're braver than I am

I have a decent pain tolerance, but I don't think I could ever do it myself. The anticipation of the pain is much worse than the pain itself, so knowing that I was in control would be terrible for me.

Did you get the results you wanted with this DIY project?

I'd need a friend to help

I can't imagine pulling the strip myself! Did you ever see that episode of Friends where Monica and Phoebe tried to wax themselves? Hilarious!

Thank you!

Well, it removed most of the hair, just like the regular wax strips. It did take me about a minute to rip it off, since I, too, was afraid of the pain. I tried to handle it, did one half of one leg, then gave up. Returned to plain old Gilette Venus. So much for my project! But I still use it for my brows and my mustache haha.
Some people say sugaring is less painful than regular waxing, but in my case, it's all the same. I'd prefer Sally Hansen waxing strips.
