Recipe:
1 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons water

FAQs:
♥DOES IT HURT?
-It does hurt a little, but less than regular waxing.
♥DO I NEED LEMON JUICE?
-You can substitute another type of citrus juice, or vinegar
♥DO I NEED WHITE SUGAR?
-I’m not sure that I would suggest other types of sugar other than granulated white sugar. It will behave differently and may burn.
♥IT’S HARD AS A ROCK! HELP!
-If it’s too dark, and hard as a rock when it cools, you overcooked it. You can try adding some lemon juice and heating it a little, but it may just be candy at this point.
♥ IT’S WATERY! HELP!
-If it’s too light, and runny/watery, you haven’t cooked it long enough. Put it back on the stove until the bubbles are light brownish yellow, and the mixture looks like honey.
♥ HOW LONG DOES MY HAIR NEED TO BE?
-You hair should be about a cm long for this to work, but you may be able to make it work with a little less. If your hair is very long, I suggest trimming in sensitive areas first.
♥ CAN I USE IT ON MY FACE/ARMPITS/LADYBITS/TAINT/TOE HAIR?
-Yes, you can use it on your face, armpits, and lady parts. Be careful not to burn yourself, and pull your skin taut to prevent bruising. Work in SMALL sections for sensitive areas like these. Try it somewhere beefier first, like your thigh. Some people bruise more easily than others if their skin isn’t pulled taut.
♥ IS IT PERMANENT?
-For most people this lasts about 3-4 weeks, but your hair will gradually grow back thinner and thinner the more you use it. This is not permanent.
♥ CAN I EAT IT?
-Yes, you technically can eat it. Weirdo.
♥ HOW LONG DOES IT KEEP?
-You can store it for several months. I’ve stored it for over three months with no issue, but I usually run out before then.
♥ CAN I KEEP IT IN A PLASTIC JAR?
-You can store it in plastic, glass, whatever you can safely pop in the microwave for a few seconds.
♥ CAN I MAKE IT IN A MICROWAVE?
-I don’t recommend making this from the beginning in the microwave. You need a stove.
♥ I RUINED MY POT/BOWL/COUNTER/FLOOR/SPOON! HELP!
-Just soak it in water to get the sugar off of anything it may be stuck to. It’ll come off. I promise.
♥ I BURNED MYSELF! HELP!
-First, I told you to be careful. Second, put aloe on it. ♥

Laila Minhaj says:

I made exact wax and my hair is also looks like u but it didn’t work for me

Tumble Weed says:

this stuff is an absolute mess. when you knead and pull it it gets super sticky but when you wet your hands to make it stick less the water mixed into it makes it all runny. it sticks to absolutely everything including the plastic bag I put it in and it doesn’t come off clean but in long strands. it ended up sticking to my leg like chewing gum

Sarah Brigham says:

Your video was really informative thanks xx

Ramya Menon says:

is it useful for sensitive skin??

Gabrielle Ivie says:

so what’s the key to this, because a year ago you posted a video and you promoted the soft wax method, what did you do differently to make sure the hard wax method was successful. I understand there’s a steep learning curve.

Ellen Edwards says:

PERFECT! Thank you

socalgirl220 says:

hmm, followed this video perfectly and ended up with a total mess. the wax worked the first pull or two after applying it, but after that it was like it all melted and wouldn’t cleanly come off my skin… just a sticky mess that was difficult to clean off. any ideas what went wrong and how to improve?

Can someone help me i dont know what im doing wrong but it doesnt work pleaseee help!!!!

Angela Marie says:

Hey everyone quick tip, IF U GET BURNED, doing anything, quickly put toothpaste on it. Definitely look for one with mint and you will find instant pain relief. When the pain is fully gone, there may be a blister so be careful when you rinse off not to rub hard. Also put neosporin on it until it’s completely healed to reduce scarring.

cherterica milam says:

I did make this and the method was great, just one question: how do you clean the bowl in which you’ve mixed the wax in?

Saradorable says:

I am arabic and i dont do this like that , i JUST use honey and leave it on the stove when its liquid , put it in a container then leave it , once its dry , you can use it

AngieGandalf6 says:

Here’s a tip! I pour the wax on a silicone sheet so that nothing gets stuck and I can use the whole wax!
