Frequently Asked Questions
Lotion or Cream
Are there different types of waxes?
Yes. The two main types are sugar and rosin waxes. Sugar wax is water soluble, so residue easily rinses away. Rosin wax is known for its ability to easily adhere to short hairs. Nair™ Wax Strips are rosin based and Nair™ Naturally Smooth Wax is a sugar wax. Some are microwaveable and some are no-heat, ready-to-use products.
What is the appropriate hair length that can be removed by waxing?
All wax forms differ in the lengths of hair which can be removed. The general guideline for Nair™ Wax Strips is 1-week's growth. The general guideline for Nair™ Naturally Smooth Wax is 2-week's growth. Follow product use instructions for each specific product.
Is there another way to remove extra wax if I run out of moisturizing towelettes?
Yes, if using Nair™ Wax Strips or using Nair™ Salon Divin™, use mineral oil or baby oil to remove remaining wax. If using Nair™ Naturally Smooth Wax, use warm water. See package for complete instructions.
Is Nair™ a better value than going to the salon?
