Wengie is a YouTube sensation, and her life hacks will simplify your day-to-day routine, and they’ll save you from trying something useless. Name brands are compared with these do-it-yourself sugar hair removal waxes as Wengie discovers the truth about them both.
Strip Free Hard Wax
In this video, Wengie discovers that the DIY version does not work. When the wax is applied in the form that it is the easiest to work with, it burns. If you were to allow it to cool to a reasonable temperature, however, it’s too solid to apply. Just to find out if hard wax is a decent choice, Wengie uses the Nair brand, and it is a success.
If you want to try this for yourself, just follow this recipe: 2 Cups of Sugar; 1/4 Cup of Lemon Juice; and 1/4 Cup of Water.
Combine the ingredients in a pot, and bring them to a boil. Turn down the heat, and continue to boil for seven minutes, or until it reaches a caramel color. Be sure to stir constantly. When you have reached the right color, pour the mixture into a glass jar, and allow it to cool. Apply and pull.
Soft Sugar Wax
Follow the same recipe for this wax except half of the sugar and add a strip over the top of the wax before you pull. With the DIY version of the soft wax, you will want to wait the right amount of time before you pull, and this will take some practice. Wengie doesn’t get it on her first shot, but kills it on her second.
All things considered, Wengie encourages that you use the store bought brands instead of the at home recipes. However, she does suggest that you use the DIY if you are looking for a form of torture. If the price is worth the pain, go for it. Otherwise, head to the market.
