In recent years sugaring treatment for hair removal has gained in popularity as professional publications have included ‘sugaring’ alongside other professional hair removal treatments that therapists offer.
One of the most frequently asked questions amongst therapists is, what is the difference between sugaring and strip sugaring?
Sugaring comes in 2 different forms. In both forms the ingredients derive from mixing sugar, water and lemon juice. However, they are manufactured to different consistencies.
Traditional sugaring is formulated to be used WITHOUT strips. The paste is applied by hand against the hair growth and is flicked along the direction of hair growth to pull the hairs out. This requires its own specialised training. The training and product are supplied by trained sugaring practitioners.
Strip sugaring on the other hand is formulated for use WITH strips. It can be used as an alternative to a wax based product as the technique is very similar. The product is applied thinly along the hair growth and removed against it (like a wax). No additional training (other than waxing) is required. But there are some slight variations to skin preparation.
With both treatments there are advantages and benefits to clients & therapists.
Providing a natural treatment which is gentle and less traumatic to skin. It’s vegan and cruelty free for those who choose to make lifestyle choices.
