Let’s talk about cost of hair removal for a moment, shall we?
Please refer to Daily Worth's post entitled
"Can Expensive Beauty Treatments Save You in the Long Run?" and Total Beauty's Post
|Total Beauty||1 Year||5 Years||10 Years|
|Daily Worth||1 Year||5 Years||10 Years|
|DW:*Waxing 1st yr: Session every 4 weeks or 13 times per year|
|DW:*Waxing: Session every 6 weeks after first year|
|DW:*Laser: (for 6 treatments)|
*Waxing: Their model on dailyworth.com (closest method equivalent): $65 per session at 13 sessions per year = $845 per year
They forget to mention, however: Gas to the salon, don't forget to tip your practitioner, and gas home. Of course we think of waxing and immediately think of painful, red and/or raw skin, heated resin wax, some containing chemicals, and wax is certainly not easily cleaned up.
*Sugaring: The first year, we can safely say 17 sugaring sessions per year. Because the hairs grow back thinner, finer and sparser that number will diminish over time.
2nd year we can say an average of 13 times per year.
4th year: down to about 6 or 7 times per year (average person).
You (dailymotion.com) are calculating ten years and twenty, however, within about 5-7 years, most sugarers should experience permanency as long as they have been sugaring during the anagen stage of hair growth (1/8"). (See diagram below).
Is it just me...or is the winner perfectly clear? First, compare the methods, the benefits, and the cost. I'm still confused as to why the FDA, WebMD, Total Beauty and Daily Worth do not give Sugaring Hair Removal the utmost credit it deserves? Now, mind you, we do have reporters and journalists who are certainly getting on the sugar hair removal wagon.
Here's a few:
