Waxing vs Shaving

Posted on 13th February, 2016

That all important question – is waxing better than shaving?

Both methods of hair removal have their own benefits.



  • Can be done at any time
  • There is no need to wait for the hair to grow to a waxable length, so a quick shave before a night out is easy
  • Shaving is essentially pain free – if you have a steady hand to avoid any unwanted cuts!


  • Shaving can irritate the skin, leaving it dry and broken
  • Stubble can begin to appear the very next day, depending on your hair growth rate
  • Sometimes not all hair is removed



  • Hair is removed from the root, meaning it takes much longer to grow back and the hair-free results are longer lasting
  • Waxing is kinder to the skin
  • Regular waxing weakens the hair follicles under the skin, so when the hair grows back it is less coarse and thinner


  • You must wait until hair is at a certain length to be waxed
  • Can be painful, but usually only for a few seconds
  • Can cause ingrown hairs, especially in the bikini area, however the Outback Organics Kit contains a serum specific to treating ingrown hairs
