Gigi Hair Remover Pro Kit
The Gigi hair Remover Pro 1 Kit #0100 is a complete waxing kit that has everything you need to remove hair from the face and body.
Although it is labeled a full service kit for professional waxing, it is perfectly suited for use at home. By the time you purchase a wax warmer, the waxing strips, the wax, and all the lotions, powders and clean-up solutions, you are going to spend just as much money, if not more.
Having worked as an esthetician, I know that waxing at home demands all the same supplies, and follows the same procedures as the spa setting, so you will be happier in the long run that you have a good kit. Take the time to read the instructions, and watch the video, so you will have good results, and so you don't cause your self pain, or injury.
Once you have gotten in the habit of waxing, you will never go back to shaving! Even doing your underarms, and bikini area are wonderful waxed, and easy after you get the hang of it. You will love it!

Waxing Steps and Tips
First of all, I highly recommend putting a protective piece of wax paper, cardboard, or towel under your work area - no matter how hard you try, you will often get wax dripped on the counter, and though it's cleanable, it's doesn't come off that easily, or completely.
The hair you want to wax needs to be at least 1/4" long. The hair will come back finer, and it will come out easier after each wax, so remember that the first time smarts the most, but, it is not extremely painful. Somewhat like pulling off a band aid. There are numbing sprays available, and they do work fairly well.
Any area you are to wax uses the same steps, but when waxing facial areas, be sure to use a gentler wax made for the facial area. Remember that when you apply wax to the eyebrow area that you want to apply a thin layer - when you press down the waxing strip, the wax will spread out, and you don't want to remove more hair than you'd planned on!
As you would expect, you want the area you are to wax to be clean, and dry. Apply a pre-wax cleanser, and when dry, lightly dust with powder. Use the powder sparingly.
It is important to apply the wax with an applicator in the direction of the hair growth. Lay down the muslin strip, leaving a long enough tab at the end to be able to grab hold of. You'll be pulling the strip quickly in the opposite direction of the hair growth. Pull the skin taut, and keeping your hand close to the skin, pull in a smooth, quick movement - never pull up - keep close to the skin.
In sensitive areas, if you put pressure on the area immediately following the pull, it will help ease any pain, and redness.
Never rewax the same area! This can cause you to remove skin, or burn the area. We want to avoid irritation. Use clean tweezers to remove any hairs missed by the wax, or to further shape an area.
Remove any remaining wax with wax remover, baby oil, or petroleum jelly. Apply after-wax lotion, or an aloe based lotion, or gel.
Avoid touching the newly waxed area to prevent irritation, and red bumps.
It is a good idea to practice on an area, such as your arm or leg before working on more sensitive areas.
Waxing is a safe, effective way to remove unwanted hair, but, there are a few situations where it is wise not to wax:
- If you are currently taking Accutane, or have used it in the last year. This product thins the skin, and you run the chance of removing skin when waxing
- If you have been in a tanning bed, or in direct sunlight for a long period of time within the last 24 hours
- If you use Retin-A, for the same reason as the Accutane
- If you have lupus, AIDS, or are currently receiving treatment for cancer such as chemotherapy or radiation
- Check with your doctor if you have vericose veins in your legs
- If the area you want to wax is inflamed, irritated, sunburned, has warts or moles
- Do not wax inside your nose or ears
