So, how is waxing done?
Powder is applied to the area to be waxed, then wax [a mixture of well-cooked sugar mixed with lime/lemon juice] is applied onto the surface using a flat spatula like tool.
It is then spread evenly before a paper strip or soft cloth is then applied and pressed on the wax layer. This cloth is then ripped off in the opposite direction of the hair growth. This is repeated till all the hairs have been yanked out.
