    Waxing --- by ~MuNiYa~

    ~MuNiYa~ posted 08-05-2002 07:41 AM CT (US)

    Salaam Ladies..
    I dont know how many of you wax eyebrows and so forth.. but I've heard so many women saying they make thier wax at home with honey lemon and sugar. Does anyone know how to?
    Sounds good esp. since its all natural.

    walekumsalam muniya
    here's the method:

    take an equal amount of lemon juice and sugar in a cooking pot and start heating on stove and stirring

    soon it will start changing into a coca cola type color and boiling quite a bit

    it is cooked only after it has reached that dark coca cola color

    once that happens, leep boiling and at intervals take a butter knife and check its consistency

    if you put a drop on the kitchen counter, it shouldnt be too liquidy but shouldnt solidify immediately either

    add water/lemon juice to make it thinner or heat more to make it thicker

    you can store it and reheat it as many times as you want, wont make a difference. we usually make a big pot of wax and keep it in a big degchi in our house

    never put hot wax on your skin....and i would say don't use wax on your face yaar...

    happy waxing and lemme know how it works out

    Ok, I read all that stuff abt sugar and lemon.
    Now my question is, How will I take the wax off (my leg)?..Cuz applying sounds easy but when u buy those ready made wax they always give you those 'paper' strips to take off the wax..right?

    I got a slightly different recipe from a friend.
    WAX:
    -1 cup sugar
    -3 Tablespoons water
    -3 Tablespoons lemon juice

    Put the ingredients in a chai wali pateeli over LOW heat until the sugar melts...Then you can raise it too medium heat to make the mixture thicken but don't over do it...and then check for the consistency as Fatima said above. Put a drop of the mixture on counter top and it shouldn't be too liquidy, neither should it solidify immediately. Wait till it cools down completely. Microwave it at about 10-20 seconds, it should be warm and applicable but not Hot.

    For the strips:

    Trust me on this one. Use the basmati chawal bags (the cloth ones obviously) from the local desi store. Udhair kar, make strips out of them. You can wash them, so they are reusable.

    Muniya try Nads. All natural. I find it much better then home made waxes out of sugar and honey because for one thing Nads washes off very easily with warm water. I'd recommend Nads for waxing otherwise buy an epilator.

    Thanks guys!!
    Anchal... I loveeeeee all natural stuff.
    Nads is cool but it hurts more then warms wax.
    As for how to get the wax off..
    well there is a lil trick to it..
    Apply the wax the same direction as the hair growth and pull the opposite way. Not only does the wax come off but every lil itty bitty hair does too..

    Anchal..I've been using nads..but I've noticed that after using it a few times..the nads has lost its consistency. I'm not sure if it's because the stuff in the jar's been exposed to the air or whatever....

    Hinna yeah, i've noticed it too, I just throw it away and buy a new one. But I only wax during the summers. Winters i get by usually on epilators.
    I used to use Hot wax when i was living with my parents. Mum's got this whole machine for hot wax so you can never get wrong with the temperature. I wouldnt dare to use the hot wax on my own.

    yeh.. the machine is awesome and quite inexpensive.. like $34 compare that to paying $40 for leg waxing once.. .

    I've got the hot wax machine at home..it's pretty convenient.
    Anchal..does the epilator make your hair grow thicker?

    I think they are so much better than wax and quicker if you are immune to the initial pain.

    But still i have to thank seher and fateema for sharing the recipe...... I was thinking about it for so many days and look where i found it....!!

    i guess gupshup is becoming a solution to all my problems.

    epilators
    Faatma Habeeb posted 08-08-2002 03:44 AM CT (US)
    SAJAL baji, epilators = these small machines with minute rotating wheels and u slide them on your skin, so the hair will get trapped in b/w those wheels and get pulled out. so the action is similar to threading/waxing. you can do a search on the internet for epilator and you can see pictures etc. but one thing epilators are soooooooooooooooo PAINFUL
    gooni zikar not

    yaar hinna, its a different kind of pain b/c in waxing ONE JKHATKA and GONE, but here its but by bit so its more painful....i dont think waxing is painful waisay...but some of my friends think it is...i guess apni apni skin ki baat hay...

    epilators are great. I love 'em.
    Hinna, you are a med student, you should know the myth behind 'hair growing back thicker'

    No it doesnt, its being pulled out from its roots rather then being cut in the middle.

    As for epilators being painful, depends if you are ok with threading then epilators are alrite too. I dont find em painful. Also depends on what sort of skin you have. Sensitive skin its going to be a bit painful. This is a Mythical Fact that any sort of method such as waxing, threading and epilators are more painful around your periods.

    ===============

    Hinna posted 08-08-2002 09:35 AM CT (US)

    Faatma...true..I guess it depends on how much you can take the "pain". Some areas are darn right painful while others are not...
    hehe anchal..I'm not a med student...

    There are different types of epilators... some of my friends who use braun's silk epil... think that it i smuch less painful... i think so too .... but I have used the philips sentinelle. It is ok ,,, more painful than silk epil!!
    I seriously think that it is much easier and quicker.... no mess with epilators... because your skin gets used to it. They are fine products.... waxes are messy. I prefer using them onlegs though because mine hurt too much with epilators.

    yet .... once youreally get used to them .... you will forget about waxing. And hair gets thinner, not thicker!!!

      i use threading for my eyebrows and waxing for my upper lips only. I don't think i am very fond of whole face waxing. I used to have threading for my upper lips few yrs back and my skin became very hard, so i quite and used waxing ever since.

                              I know that hair on arms and legs grows back thinner but what about facial hair? My bhabi didn't have much hair on her face but as she bleached, hair on her face grew back thicker. I wonder why that happened?
                              it always comes back thicker..if u bleach ur facial hair..
                              ..Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering.. ~IK~
