Most waxing studios will provide you with standard waxing aftercare tips but if you’ve forgotten here’s a reminder:

Waxing Aftercare Tips

As you can see there’s no mention of ingrown hairs in sight. So after much research, I formulated a regimen that works for me that I hope will help you as well.

Products I Use

The products I use are simple and affordable. I use witch hazel, tea tree oil and olive oil.

How To Use The Products

After showering and drying take a cotton swab and apply a liberal amount of witch hazel to it. Then use the cotton swab to gently wipe the affected area. Allow the witch hazel to dry then follow up with a mix of tea tree and your favourite carrier oil. My personal favourite that I always have on hand is olive oil. When creating your oil mixture remember to adequately dilute the tea tree oil. For every 1 to 2 drops of tea tree oil, add 12 drops of carrier oil.

Tea tree oil should not be applied directly to the skin.

I use this regimen religiously after every shower for the first week after my wax. After that, I can go without it for a few days in between. I’d suggest continuing this regimen until your hair starts to grow back, that way you can see it at work.

My favourite waxing spot is Adam and Eve Day Spa. You can find them at 56 Old Hope Road Kingston, Jamaica.
