Does Hair Grow Back After Waxing?

Waxing is a hair removal from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for four to six weeks, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week because of some of the hair are on a different human hair growth cycle.

How long you can expect your wax to last?

We have here the three stages of hair, which are growing, resting and transitional. At any given time, approximately 80 to 90 percent of our hair follicles are in the growth phase. The rest are either in the transitional phase (two to three percent) or in the resting phase (10 to 15 percent).

This means that there is probably some hair below the skin that is growing and hasn’t reached the surface yet. Or it can be above the surface of the skin and not that long enough to be grasped. In this case, waxing isn’t going to be able to pull or grasp these hairs and remove them. In the few days or weeks to come, you will see these hairs noticeably appear but it depends on their thickness and color.

Even if they have the same length, dark and thick hair will start to appear much sooner than the light and fine hair. When the service is very successful, waxing removes hair from the root and will surely last up to six weeks. However, skin isn’t always hair-free for a full six week. In fact, you often see regrowth much sooner.

This typically depends on several factors, like the general and average hair growth cycle, your personal hair growth cycle, breakage, and how frequently you get a wax.

Yes, hair does regrow after waxing.

But what’s good about this matter is that, when the hair does grow back, each hair shaft is thinner and finer and even softer to touch than the regrowth of hair that has been shaved.

And also, waxing hair puts a strain on the hair follicle and so over time, if you wax periodically, some of the follicles will stop producing hair, and the hair on your body in those parts or areas will grow thinner and finer at the same time.

Personal Hair Growth Cycle

In different areas of the face and body don’t spend the same amount of time the phases of the growth, rest and transitions. Men and women, these both individuals have been found to spend different amounts of time in the growing hair phase (even in the same body area). The age, season, hormone levels and genetics also plays a big part in these personal cycles.

Ultimately, this only means that your leg waxing won’t necessarily last you the same amount of time as your friend’s, nor will it grow back in sync with the bikini wax you got on the same day. Even if the areas got waxed essentially have the same hair growth cycles, you will notice or feel thick or dark hair like in the bikini line much more than fine and light facial hair-regrowth.


The purpose or aim of waxing is to remove the entire follicle from the root. In a perfect world with ideal circumstances and fail-proof technicians, each and every hair would be successfully removed every time. But this is not the case. When the hair is being waxed, it sometimes breaks off above or even underneath the skin’s surface, instead of being removed from the root.

There are lots of factors that come into play into why it breaks off, which includes the length of the hair, the type of wax used, the quality of wax used, and lastly, the skill of the technician. Although professionals a break the hair, it is much more likely that you will do so yourself if you do your own at a home session.

Thus, hair that is broken has not been removed from the follicle. You’ll see hair much sooner than you thought you would when it happens. If it broke above the skin surface, then the results will last comparable to shaving. And if it broke underneath the skin surface, you have a couple of days before you see it. Cause breakage creates a sharp edge, often ingrown hairs will follow.

How often you wax?

Some individuals that get waxed or uses any methods and techniques that removes hair from the root regularly, will often cause the follicle to become damaged over time. This may also cause a reduction where it comes back finer or just stops growing altogether.

If there is any reduction in hair, how soon it will happen after being repeatedly waxed will vary depending on the person, their age, genetics and the specific are at hand. Many people go anywhere from three to six weeks between waxing, but there isn’t any true rule, as everyone’s wax lasts for different lengths of time.

We can say that nothing is really permanent in this world. So we should always take a lot of patience in everything we do specifically in making our body and face beautifully. However, if acceptance and contentment are present, then these techniques, methods, and procedures won’t do anything in your life.
