Looking for an amazing hard wax to fall in love with! Any suggestions? I have tried a couple of different waxes but I am not married to one yet. Please advise.
Hmmmm I have one, the only catch is that it's not quite ready yet. It's my own wax that I'm working on. Have been testing it for a while and I LOVE IT. Should be coming out in the next couple of months. If you get on my mailing list Tiffany I can keep you posted. If you're interested, just go to www.thewaxchick.com and sign up for the newsletter.
Thanks! I have signed up for the newsletter and plan on attending your workshop that is in socal in july! Thanks
Trying different waxes is always a good idea... We are offering samples of our European no strip waxes for free. You can request a sample by going to www.starpilwax.com/samp.html.
You can also visit our page for more info. Good luck with the search.
Perfect! I requested a sample can't wait to try it!
I like Cirepil's Blue hard wax. I always get great results with it and it's easy to use.
I prefer the Berodin blue over the cirepil/ It's a little less stringy.
a lot of people like the Satin Smooth. For me it tended to get brittle and not stay pliable - this tended to get worse the longer I had it. Could possibly been that the ingredients degraded over time. With all hard waxes I find it's important to make sure that you don't heat too much/too hot.
that's an excellent point Cindy. Hard waxes are low temperature by nature, they should never be runny like a soft wax.
I know all wax pots are different but generally what temp do you heat yours too?
Rather than go by a specific temperature, it's easier to go by consistency. Ideally, a hard wax at the right consistency should cling to the stick without running and dripping off. You should be able to have a nice ball of wax at the end of your stick. Hope this helps.
I think i will try both and see which one I like better. Thanks for the tip
I like the Berodin Blue for the pliability. I have tried many and in 12 years I still like the same one.
